I'm wondering if this could be Cornelius Lane in a second marriage? 

VIEWMichigan, Marriage Records, 1867-1952

Name: Cornelius A Lane
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birth Year: abt 1838
Birth Place: New York
Marriage Date: 28 Aug 1871
Marriage Place: Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, USA
Age: 33
Residence Place: Detroit, Michigan
Spouse: Flora Brundage
Record Number: 3679
Film: 6
Film Description: 1871 Jackson - 1872 Branch
The death record of his son says Cornelius was born in Ireland, not New York
Yes, I was aware of that.  But I generally don't dismiss a record simply because one fact may differ.
No, that's sensible. It's definitely a good policy, especially if you narrow your field down to one person who's a good fit, except for a probable mistake in record keeping.

However, I spent some time poking around FamilySearch yesterday, and eventually decided that without more to go on, it'd be hard to track down the right Cornelius Lane. Just to start with I looked for people of that name, born in Ireland between 1800-1840, living in the United States, and found at least a dozen distinct individuals, several of whom lived in Michigan. It's a pretty tough one.

Having said that, there's this record, the 1870 census, that has  Cornelius Lane (55yo), married to a Margaret (41), both of Ireland, living in Flint. They have a 3yo son James (not a perfect match for the death record, but still close). 

And it might be this Cornelius who dies in 1877:


Still can not find parents for Cornelius lane ugh
The birthdate on Wikitree is 1846, making him 17 when his son was born?
