Walter & Eliza Mary Mead Lanier

Walter Lanier was a minister and very much anti-slavery. He married Eliza Mary Mead, the daughter of a slave owning planter. Needless to say trouble ensued. Read a family story passed down about how he dealt with one situation. Another story tells of how Sherman spared the Lanier farm.
