The Daily Telegraph, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana
Saturday, January 2, 1886 Page 4, Column 2 HOMICIDE The news reached Rayville Tuesday morning that Tom Payne had killed Burt Nettles. We heard the news just before the arrival of the train and we discovered John Nettles dismount from the train. We went to him and gathered the following information: Elbert Nettles was at the residence of Mrs. Payne, at Girard sitting in the parlor, that Payne fired from a door leading into the hall, the ball entering one temple and coming out the other. Elbert Nettles was a young man of extraordinary business capacity of his age and opportunities. He had built up a large business both at Girard and Oak Ridge; he had succeeded in gaining the confidence of his merchant in New Orleans and for his promptness he had been enabled to procure assistance for a small per cent. And hence had the advantage of most country merchants. As to indulging in intoxicating liquors, we never heard of him being drunk; he did not gamble, as we are aware of but was attentive to business. As for other habits we leave our readers to judge for themselves. As for energy and business sagacity, we do not suppose our parish has ever turned out one of his equal. He leaves a mother and two brothers who have our sympathy in their bereavement. Deceased was a son of J.H. and Lizzie V. Nettles. He was about 27 years old.-Beacon.

John Lanier III

© copyright 1999 by Linda L Chandler
Prince George Co, Va Rent Roll 1704 page 2
LEENIER, Jno............100

In 1717, Surry County, Virginia, John's will was probated. John came to America as a baby. He grew up on the James River, Charles City, Virginia.
Participated in Bacon's Rebellion with his father in 1676.
In 1683 he bought land with Peter Wycke in Parish of Westover. John is a common ancestor of Larry Jones/Bess Chancellor Jones.

There were about 10 Lanier residences on the U.S. census records as of 1790. This had increased to around 18 households by 1800. This number doubled by 1810. This number almost doubled again by 1830. By 1860 there were over 360 Lanier households on the U.S. census.
Today there are over 10,000 residences in the U.S. and only around 500 households in France which was the orginal home of the Laniers. The number of Laniers in Great Britain has dwindled to less than 10.
Only one Lanier lives in South Africa.

John LANIER to Catherine FALLETT---7 Jan 1789


Elizabeth Byrd

On 04 Mar1728 Elizabeth sold land which she inheirited to Tabitha and Richard. However, this was just after her own husband's death, which could have placed Thomas' death somewhat before.


John Lanier Jr.

John came to America as a baby. He grew up on the James River, Charles City, Virginia.

There is the accepted possibility that John Lanier Jr. is the same person as his father. It is believed that they are father and son, but if not, then John Sr. above married three times, first to Lucreece, then to the two wives below. In that case the daughter above would be contributed to John Sr. However we have gone here with the assumption that these are two different people.

He lived in Virginia and married first in 1677 in Charles City County, Virginia to Alice or Katherine Sampson (d. bef 1685). Then about 1685 he married to Sarah Edmunds/Edmonds (widow) also in Charles City County, Virginia.

Participated in Bacon's Rebellion with his father in 1676.
In 1683 he bought land with Peter Wycke in Parish of Westover. John is a common ancestor of Larry Jones/Bess Chancellor Jones.
