Stories about The Lanham Surname

James Thomas Lanham

  • Prince Georges Maryland

James Thomas Lanham is the son of Hanson Lanham. He was married 3 times, however earlier research by many persons which did not include examining his Civil War Pension Record had assumed his wife Sarah who appears in the census records from his first marriage to be the same one who appears in later census records, however the Pension records contained documents that correct this error, it turns out he had 3 wives, the first one died was the Widow of John Humphries and died in 1884, and the second one never appeared on census records as the marriage was very short and ended in a divorce decree, the third marriage in 1891 was to Sarah Courtney.
