Lanier Family

My understanding is that every Lanier in the world is related, as the name has come from a single source. This is a line that I have not personally researched, though it has apparently been researched by numerous persons. The bolded names are my personal ancestors in the line.

Pay special attention to the numbering of the generations, as this is pasted in from another program and may lose some formatting.
