Richardson Mills and Elliots?

Are you talking about Missouri Bushwackers? Or was the term used in other states? My Laney's settled in Cass County, Missouri by 1870., coming from Brown County, Ohio where several generations had been born after our Revolutionary War. Cass county was a bushwacking county during the Civil War, but I have no stories about Laney envolvement (in fact I am not sure if they arrived during or after the war).

Surnames: laney
yes those are the laney's I am looking for. I am really interested in the parents of Randolph Laney Sr. I know that his name is Squire Randolph Laney, born somewhere in SC in 1815. He was killed the same day that he joined up for the Confederate War. He is my ggggrandfather and from what my family tells me, he changed his surname from Delaney to Laney, probably because he was so mean. My family also thinks the Delaney's came to Tennessee from Pennsylvania??? IF you could help with any information at all or point me to some sights that could help I would be really grateful. Thanks

Randolph Laney m. Dorcus Mills, their daughter Nancy
Jane Laney was my grandmoother grandmother, so we
share the same gr gr gr gr grandfather, look into the
Affair of Toqua, Monroe County, read about the Bushwachers
Kirklands, Mills and Laneys, Randolph Laney born was killed
in Citco, Monroe County, Tn by the Kirkland Bushwachers
after the Civil War, but his brother in Law Dorcus brother
was killed at Toqua, very interesting. Dorcus was just
as mean as her husband, after his death, she moved to
Murphy, Nc and was scalped by Indians on the way but
survived, she wore a scarf the rest of her life. After the
Affair at Toqua, some of Randolph and Dorcus's sons changed
their names, Dorcus is buried in Murphy, NC.. let me know
what you find out, check out the Monroe county Census, TN
around 1850 and 1860, you can the Squire as a son of
Randolph and Dorcus, Where do you live and how do
fall on down thru the tree....

Surnames: laney
my grandmother is the daughter of Frank Laney of Cherokee co.NC. He is the son of Thadious Clengmon Laney, who's father is Randolph Laney. I live in Lexington NC, my grandma moved here when her mom divorced her dad. I have read the stories at tellico and they are very interesting but I haven't heard about Dorcus and the Indians. I do know that after Randolph died, Dorcus married Aidlor Wiliams don't know if it was before or after they crossed the mountain. I do know that Squire R. Laney is born at sweetwater cemetary in clay co. NC. Somewhere I found that a Rndolph Laney married a Martha Elliott b. about 1849, married 10-29-1865 in Monroe TN. I don't know, don't make sense??? I've got some dates that I could share and I know Frank Laney's family but if you have anything more let me know. Thanks
