Assisted Living Resident Helps End Decade-Long Family History Search
Cottage resident and researcher Millie Shaw, left, and Stephen Charles Lane show off a photo of Stephen's great-great grandfather, Charles Lane of Sanbornton. The two had been searching for Lane's photo for over a decade.
Millie Shaw, assisted living resident at The Cottage at Golden View, recently made the front page of The Citizen newspaper after helping Virginia resident Stephen Charles Lane discover the true story of his great-great grandfather, Charles Lane of Sanbornton, who served as a Justice of the Peace and clerk of the New Hampshire House of Representatives in the 19th century.
After learning more about his ancestor from Millie, Stephen asked her to help him find Lane's photo. After a decade of searching, Millie connected with a local history columnist who came to speak at Golden View. With the help of local historians, Millie and Stephen finally found what they were looking for.
