Anna Pearl Lane

Fourth child and only daughter of David and Mary Lane.

Anna Pearl Lane, only girl in the family, was born 23 Jan 1904 near Table Rock, Pawnee County, NE.  After high school, Anna completed the “normal school” sequence for licensure to teach and moved to Wyoming as a teacher.   That is where she met William Rolley Quick and they married on 30 June 1925 at Jewelsburg, Sedgewick County, Colo.  (Bill was born 23 Mar 1900 in western S.Dak.  After Anna’s death, he remarried to Almeda Stoddard.  He died 13 Aug 1970 in Keith County, NE.  The Quick family originally came from Denmark and for many generations were in the New York area, including a Quick among the early governors of New Jersey, but by the 1900s most of Bill’s near-relatives were in the Deadwood area near the Wyoming-South Dakota line.)  They raised four children, living at times back and forth between Nebraska and Oregon.  When living on the ranch in Arthur County, about 1946-47, they excavated by horse-drawn scoop and built an underground house [son Melvin said he did the excavation, using a “slip” designed for use with a two-horse team, rather than the larger “fresno” style scoop used by commercial excavators with a four-horse team].  Anna died 2 Feb 1961 and is buried in the Ogallala, Keith County, NE cemetery.
