  1. Any Scarborough clan to mix with those Laniers?? I have a William Lanier that marries a Adeline Scarborough. She born ca 1855, believe around Bulloch County Georgia. I have done NO research on them, huge hole in the data base!

  2. Carol, I've only been working the Laniers since last year when we finally proved that was my grandfather's real surname. From what little I know, I think the Bulloch County Laniers are fairly distantly related to my bunch who were in the Chambers/Randolph, AL area before 1840.

    There is a Lanier book by Louise Ingersoll at (our favorite place) Ancestry and it has your Adeline & Wm on page 77 I'm not sure how accurate the book is but I've used it as a starting point and so far what little I've verified has held up.
