Zane, Charles Shuster (1831-1915).

New Jersey-born Zane moved to Sangamon County during his youth. He attended McKendree College in Lebanon, Illinois, from 1852 to 1855 and in 1856 began to study law with James C. Conkling. He was admitted to the Illinois bar the next year and in 1861 began practicing with WHH when AL left for Washington, D.C. After leaving WHH's office, Zane served as register of the Springfield Land Office, was the partner of Shelby Cullom (1870-73), and later served as chief justice of Utah Territory. He was married to Margaret Maxcy, a niece of WHH. (Dictionary of American Biography; National Cyclopedia of American Biography)
