Biographical Note

A native of Illinois, Dr. Lane of Goliad County, Texas, was accused of disloyalty to the Confederacy and harboring anti-Southern sentiments in 1864. Lane was indicted by attorney Frederick Wiles Faunt Le Roy (1818-1900). The latter served as clerk, master in chancery, and district attorney in Brownsville, Texas, before enlisting in the Confederate Army during the Civil War.
