Fifth child and fourth son of David and Mary Lane.

David Oral Lane, born 19 Apr 1906 at Maywood, Frontier County, NE.  It was primarily Oral and his father who built the “baled hay house” on the Arthur County ranch.  Various ones in the family lived in that house through the years; it was still standing in 2007 and was always the “central stop” on tours to the ranch with various grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Oral married on 28 July 1937 near Warrensburg, MO to Mary Alice Ross (she was born 15 July 1917 at Friend, Saline County, NE, the daughter of Henry W. Ross and Marjorie M. [Gavin]).  They raised four children, initially at Lewellen, Garden County, NE, and later at Boring, Clackamas County, OR.  Oral died 25 Oct 1992 at Boring and is buried at the Sandy Ridge Cemetery, Sandy, Clackamas County, OR.  For many years Mary worked at Heidi’s, a popular family restaurant near their home on Highway 212, Boring.  Mary is still living (in 2007) in a retirement center in Sandy.  [Also in 2007, two of her younger sisters, of the family of 7 children, also were still living, Bertha Dana in Hebron, NE and Marjory Weidel in Osborn, KS.  As a note of possible interest, the Gavin family purportedly traces its roots to a knighted Scottish clan, according to the Clan MacFarlane Society, Inc.]
