At least three of Timothy and Liddy (Horner) Cude/Coodeâ€™s children moved to Granger Co. Tenn. About 1795. Tennessee didnâ€™t become a state till 1796. The coustom of the time was to name your first son after your father-in-law and the second son after your father. Elixabeth (Liddy) Hornerâ€™s father was probably named William and a brother to George Horner (1724 Kent Is. Claimed by both Maryland and Virginia), the father of William Horner (Bef. 1771). Grainger County has a rich history dating back to its creation in 1796 from parts of Hawkins and Knox counties. It later gave up territory to three other counties: Claiborne(1801), Union(1850), Hamblen(1870) and settled into it's current boundaries in 1960 when a small amount of territory was returned from Union County. The county is bounded on the Northwest by the Clinch River (and Norris Lake) and on the Southeast by the Holston River (and Cherokee Lake). Grainger is the only county in the state named after a woman. It's namesake was Mary Grainger, who married Governor William Blount and became First Lady of the Territory South of the River Ohio (which later became known as Tennessee). His first daughter, Mary (b.1766 spouse: Tidence Lane). William A Cude born 2 Apr 1773 in Randolph Co. NC, d. 1822, Grainger Co., TN?-Spouse: Darcus Jones.

Isaac Lane, pioneer settler of McMinn county, Tennessee, was a soldier in the Revolutionary war and was a member of the Lane family which came to Watauga in 1776. Isaac Lane was born Feb 14, 1760. In June, 1776, at the age of 16 he enlisted in a company of Pittsylvania county (Virginia) militia commaned by Capt. Peter Perkins, and served about three monts. In the fall of that year he moved to the Boone's Creek settlement on Watauga, in the present satate of Tennessee, where he joined some of his kinsmen who had already made clearings for new homes west of the Alleghany mountains.
This young soldier was member of Capt. William Bean's compan, which was active in 1777 in driving loyalists and tories fromt he Watauga and Nolachicky regions. In September 1780, he enlisted for th expedition to King's Mountain, under Col. John Sevier, and served as lieutenant thhree monts and fifteen days in the companies commanded by Capt. George Russell and Capt. Thomas Jarnagin.
Lieut. Isaac Lane was in the Battle of Boyd's Creek, which was fought against the Cherokees, shortly after the return of the Watauga militia from King's mountain, and his conspiccuaous bravery in the encoutner is mentied by Dr. Ramsey in his "Annals of Tennessee."
On March 23, 1781, Isaac Lane received a grant from the state of North Carloina for 100 acres of land in the Washinton county on Sinking creek at Watauga, joining Willaim Bean, Sr. and Cato West's lans, including a spring, and this was surveyed Aug 6, 1782. In May, 1782, he married Sarah Russell, daughter of Capt. George Russell, under whom he had fought at King's mountain, and the young couple set up housekeeping in a new cabin on the Sinking creek grant. Moves to Hawkins As the settlement expanded, many of the inhabitants moved farther and farther into the wilderness and new counties were formed in the North Carolina territory west of the mountains. Isaac Lane moved with his family to Hawkins county, which was erected in 1786, Isaac Lane's home was in the part which fell into the new county of Graiger, and for a number of years, until another county division was made, he was active in the affairs of Grainger county.
He was a captain of a company as long as he lived in Grainger county, which lay between Clinch mountain and Clinch river. In 1797 Isaac Lane bought from James Berry, of Hawkins county, 320 acres of land in Grainger county, on the north fork of Sycamore creek, which adjoined his home at Big Spring, and here he lived until about the year 1820, when he removed to the newly created county of McMinn in the "Hiwassee purchase".
Isaac Lane was a member of the Grainger county court in 1799 and on Feb. 21 or that year he was given permission by the court "to build a grist and saw mill on the spring fork of Sycamore creek, he owning the lands".
In 1801 Claiborne county was cut from Grainger, adnd Isaac Lane again found himself in a new county. He was one of the justices who organized the first court of Claiborne county and was chosen charirman of the body on Dec. 7, 1801.
The Lane family were devout Baptists and contributed generously to the denomination in Tennessee. On July 13, 1800, a Primitive Baptist church was orgaized at Big Spring and a meeting-house was erected upon land donated for the putpose by Isaac Lane, who was one of the five organizing members. The interesting old records of this church are still preserved in Claiborne county and the original log church is still standing on the knoll where it was built. In the cedar-shaded graveyard beside the church lie the remains of membes of the Lane family and many of their kindred.
The following Lanes were early members of the Big Spring Baptist church: Capt. Isaac Lande and his wife, Sarah (Russell) Lane, and their children, Sarah Elizabeth, Leta and Mary Lane, who were received "by experience" April 2, 1802. On Dec 2, 1807, Zachariah McCubbins and his wife, Sarah McCubbins, a sister of Capt. Isaac Lane, with their daughter, Let McCubbins, were recieved by letter.
When the lands acquired by the state of Tennessee from the Cherokees, by the Hiwassee purchase were opened up for settlement, Capt Isaac Lane bought a farm in McMinn county on Mouse creek, near the present town of Niota, and moved his family to the new purchase. Here he and his wife spent the remainder of their days surrounded by several fo their children who followed their parents to Couse Creek valley. Buried Near Niota Isaac Lane died Nov 9, 1851, and was buried in a family graveyard on the highway a short distance north of Niota. On his tomstone, erected at the time of his death, was inscribed:
"Sacred to the Memory of Isaac Lane, Who Served in the Revolutionary War as a Lietenant in the Battle of King's Mountain, 1780. "Died Nov 9, 1851, in the ninety-second year of his age."
