Tombstone Tuesday- Lane Family, Hampton, NH

Lane Family Tombstone
Pine Grove Cemetery, Winnacunnet Road, Hampton, New Hampshire.

William Lane, junior. and his wife Sarah Webster were my 8x Great Grandparents. Their names are on a 1681 list of the members of the 2nd Church in Boston, and sometime after that they removed to Hampton, New Hampshire. Sarah was William’s first cousin. They lived near Sarah’s father, Thomas Webster, near where Hampton Academy now stands. William Lane was a tailor. Deacon Joshua Lane was his son. I descend through his brother, Samuel Lane who married Elizabeth Blake. William Lane senior, his father, and Mary Brewer, his mother, are also listed on one side of this stone, and they also died in Hampton.
