Ellis Album, Photo 58 – Lane Willis

Lane Willis

John Lane Willis is my 1st cousin 3 times removed.  He is the first cousin of the album’s creator, Blanche Octavia Huband.

Lane was born 19 June 1896 to Louise Delina Cheney & George Bloomfield Willis at Laketown, Rich, Utah.  On 3 September 1918, he enlisted in the US Army.  He was honorably discharged 20 January 1919.  Almost three years later, on 9 January 1922, he married Hannah Lillian Gheen.  Together they had at least five children.  Lane died 8 March 1983, almost 13 months after Hannah passed.

Thank you for your service cousin.
