(Barker) Lane, natives of Ireland and England respectively. In 1823 the father became a resident of New York state
and thirteen years later went to Canada, where his marriage occurred Both he and his wife continued to reside there
until called by death. Four of their eight children survive, namely: Jennie, the widow of Allan Craig; T. A., of

T. A. Lane was reared in Canada but took his college work in the University of Michigan, being an alumnus of that
institution of the class of 1893. In the fall of that year he removed to Jackson county, Iowa, where for two years
he engaged in the practice of law in that place, but since 1895 he has resided in Victor and has gained a clientage

In June, 1895, Mr. Lane and Miss Boyde Dalzell, of Jackson county, Iowa, were joined in marriage. Her father, M.
Dalzell, has passed away, but his memory is still cherished by many who were closely associated with him. Mr. and
Mrs. Lane have two children, Francis E. and Margaret L. The wife and mother is a member of the Congregational church,
in whose activities she takes a helpful interest, and Mr. Lane cooperates with various movements seeking the welfare
of his community. His political belief is that of the democratic party. He has not only gained recognition as a
successful professional man but has also made and retained many friends, who value highly his favorable opinion.
