Lane Family

  My Lane family starts with John Allen Lane.

John was born Jan. 8, 1872 in Missouri. The first record
I find him on is with the Jacob and Martha Deason family on 
the 1880 census for Liberty Township, Stoddard County, Missouri listed this way.

Head-Jacob Deason, born 1849 in IL.
Wife-Martha, born 1843 in MO.
Dau-Arminta,age 10, born 1870 in MO.
Adopted-Son-Lane, John Allen,age 8, born in MO.
Gillis, Joseph, age 26, born 1854 in MO.
Wife-Souisa, age 19, born 1861 in TN.

There was no relationship given for Joseph & Souisa Gillis on the census.
I do not know what relationship John Allen Lane is to the Deason family, are they his Aunt & Uncle, Cousin, or any blood relationship at all. Any help welcomed here.
I do know John's name was never legally changed and was born with the name of John Allen Lane.
