Lane, is the kids' 1st cousin 3 times removed.  He is buried at Tuckers Chapel Cemetery.  Dawson's parents are William N. Lane and Oma M. Edge, the kids' 2nd great-grandaunt and uncle.  They are both related because William Lane's parents are Dawson B. Lane (1862-1923) (not related) and Lucy E. Burnett (the kids' 3rd great-grandmother) who was also married to Dedrick Henry Meyer.  Oma Edge is related because her parents are, the kids' 3rd great-grandparents, Joseph Lewis Edge and Alice Cora Starling.  Joseph and Alice are the parents of Cora Augusta Edge, the kids' Great, great-grandmother.
