born about 1722 in Surry Co. Va., moved with his parents
to Brunswick Co. before 1740. He married in Brunswick
Co. about 1746 Miss Peebles, the daughter of Jehu and
Mary Peebles, and thought to be named Molly, but no record
has been found to prove it. She died before 1761,
leaving three children. He married second 1761 Elizabeth,
born about 1746, who survived him forty-five years,
dying June 1829 at the age of eighty-four; she married
second before November 1788 Lieut. John France, a Revolutionary
Soldier; her will was dated Feb. 19, 1810, and
probated July 13, 1829, Henry Co. Va. In April 1772 Lemuel
Lanier bought land in the newly formed county of
Pittsylvania, and in 1777, that section became Henry Co.
His will was dated Jan. 29, 1785 in Henry Co. and probated
Mar. 23, 1786. His children were David,Molly, and
Sally; and by Elizabeth, —Washington, Nancy, and Benjamin.
