Colonel Isaac Lane, Buxton, ca. 1830

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Isaac Lane (1765-1833) of Buxton, was the eldest son of Captain Daniel Lane and Molly Woodman.

His father and his uncles, Captain John Lane and Captain Jabez Lane, all served with distinction in the Revolutionary War, earning them the sobriquet "the military family of Buxton."

Isaac enlisted before he was 14 and served as a fifer in his father's company, eventually serving more than four years. He also served in the War of 1812, raising a regiment of 500-600 volunteers, mustered as the 33rd United States Infantry.
