Lane was born in Kentucky in 1811 and moved to Crawfordsville in 1835. His 2-day term as governor was by design. He was chosen to run for governor and Oliver P. Morton for lieutenant governor. They agreed that if the Republicans won control of the state general assembly, Lane would be elected to the U.S. Senate and Morton would serve as governor. This outcome was achieved. Lane died in 1881 and is buried in Crawfordsville.Use of this image is restricted to IHS reference purposes only. IHS may not reproduce.
