GGFather James (Jim) Vance's Chair Before001.jpg 2009-04-28

 

Ben and Ginny Butt have this chair. They live in Phoenix, AZ. Ginny was so sweet to have the chair totally refurbished and she is the one made the beautiful needlework replacement cushions.

The story goes that this chair always sat on the front porch of Jim and Velma Vance's home. He sat in it EVERY day. Everyone knew that this was "Grand Daddy's" chair. No one was to sit in the chair but him! He sat in this chair every day when he came home from work to rest.

Now, Ben Butt, his Grandson comes home from work to sit in the same chair!

Photo 1 was the original condition of the chair when Ben and Ginny got it.

Photo 2 is the stuffing used to make the cushions soft! Funny!!!!

Photo 3 is the chair after it was recained I think....

Photo 4 is the finished product with the hand made needlepoint cushions that Ginny made!

Mattie Velma ("Mammy" Vance
Mattie Velma ("Mammy" Vance

Always dressed, usually with her pearl earrings and necklace. You would often find Mammy in her chair. She loved to watch wrestling and soap opera shows and listened to them at maximum volume due to hearing loss. This hearing loss now runs in our family!

This is Mattie Velma ("Mammy") Vance and her great-grandson, Hugh ("Rich") Ellis Richardson Jr. Grandson of Helen and Hughie B. ("Doc") Richardson. Helen was Jim and Mattie's youngest daughter.

As children, we were all scared to death of those turkeys. They would run after us and peck our heels!

Newspaper article about our Slate Springs ancestors!!!!!

Historic Slate Springs Lives Up to Traditions as Worth-While Community


A few people yet living can remember the time that the site on which the town of Slate Springs is located was a virgin forest and these few people have reached a ripe old age.  We boast, however, of the honor of having some of the oldest citizens of the county in the persona of James Neely Vance and sister, who are 81 and 83 years old, and Rev. J. T. McPhail, who is 77 years old.

It is quite a pleasure to hear these venerable people talk of the pioneer days and it is from their recollections that the most of the following history has been gathered.

Mr. Jim Neely Vance’s father helped to cut the right of way for the road that ran from Pittsboro to old Greensboro, which crossed the old Houston and Grenada road at Slate Springs. A part of this old road is incorporated in the graveled highway from the Rex Mallory garage south toward the county line. This road was constructed about 1859.

The first saw mill located here was in 1835. It was a sash saw which worked up and down instead of with a circular movement through the logs. It was owned and operated by William Vance and was situated on Shoot-Us-A Spear Creek.  Water was used for power. The writer has a plank sawed by this mill eighty one years ago. A portion of this plank may be seen on display at the Monitor-Herald office.

The first house built in this community was constructed by a man named Joe Fox. He was located on the site where Mr. Carter now lives. He also constructed the first store here. Both buildings were made of logs. This gentleman kept the post office and the time was about 1856. He had to close out his little business on account of the Civil War. The next mercantile firm to open for business was a company which operated under [the] name of Woodward Son & Buchanan.

The first post office was served by mail only once a week, the mail carrier being named Hannah, and the route ran from Grenada to Hopewell.

The first school building was located about a mile North of the present building, near what is now known as the Frank Putman place. Miss Elizabeth Vance, who still lives in our town, went to school in this little house. The first teacher was James Cooke and the time was in the year 1849.

By this time the surrounding territory was more thickly settled than previously, some of the families being the Vances, Pryors, Shaws, Therrells and Doolittles. In 1857, the people came together, planned and built a new school house, which was located where Mrs. Belle Spencer’s home now stands. The first session was taught by Major Garvin and son, from Boston Mass. This was a two-story structure, the upper story being a Masonic Hall. In this building plans were made to incorporate the town, and at the same meeting a petition was drawn up, signed by the people and presented to the State Legislature asking that a law be passed preventing the sale of intoxicating liquors within five miles of the corporate limits of Slate Springs. So we claim that our immediate forefathers were among the first to see the evil of strong drink and that the idea of prohibition in Mississippi may have started from the action of these fearless pioneers who placed community morality and Christianity on a higher level than most other communities of that age.  This law was passed and was rigidly enforced and there is not a doubt but that it has been an influence for the good of this community that has been beyond estimation through all the years. We claim we have one of the best communities and schools in Mississippi, considering our size.

The first really great school here was taught by Hon. Fuller Fox, afterwards Congressman of this district, whose death occurred only a few weeks ago at West Point, and Hon. Sam Cooke, who died Friday, Sept 10, 1926 at his home at Walthall. As time passed other good men and fine teachers assumed charge of it – so many that we cannot mention them all.  A few were Bob Conner, Jim Cox, Prof. Higgins, Alonzo Skelton, Prof. Gaza ? other members of the Fox family, John Taylor, A. E. Ferguson. The influence of this school through the [line faint] great as to be {/}.  Such men as Judge Jim ? noted Mississippi jurist, and Major General Fox Connor, who was on Gen. Pershings’ staff during the World War, went to school here, as did others of note.

The school this session is under the management of the following faculty: H. D. Young, superintendent; Mrs. Jim Phillips, High School studies; Mrs. Rex Blue, 7th and 8th grades; Mrs. Sam Pryor, History; Mrs. Izola Morgan, 5th and 6th grade; Miss Nora Burns, 3rd and 4th grades; Miss Dais Skelton, Primary; Mrs. J. A. Spencer, Music.

The school has an enrollment of 225 pupils. It is at present a Consolidated High School and carries four full years of High School work and is fully affiliated under the State requirements. Trustees are Messrs. Gus Vance, A. Pryor and Jim West. A live P.T.A. has helped to make the school what it is since Consolidation.

High Ideals Have Made The Community
Slate Springs is a fine town.  It is clean morally and the people have high ideals and work together in unison for the welfare of the community. One of the features of this community is that more people own their own homes and land than in any other section of the county. The town has several business houses and is surrounded by a rich farming section inhabited by well –to-do farmers.

The first rural routes in the county were established at Slate Springs many years ago. There are three of them. The fine State Highway thru Calhoun County passes through the town, and the graded roads of the community are good even better now than at any time in the past

Church Organizations
There are two churches here Methodist and Baptist, with two good pastors. We have Sunday School every Sunday and good B. Y. P. U.  Seven preachers live in the community, indicating that Christianity is not only taught by lived here.

Farming Activities
Slate Springs is surrounded by some of the best farming land in North Mississippi.  Sabougla Creek, which flows through the community, has had a fine drainage canal cut through its bottom this year.  This canal, with laterals, is about 18 miles in length.  It is a very efficient drainage district, the canal having a fall of 7 ½ feet to the mile, which assures all flood waters being hurried off quickly. This piece of progress has enhanced the value of the property and made the farming land hereabout more desirable.

All kinds of crops are grown here. The corn and lespedeza crops are the best for many yeas Cotton is fair. Other crops are good. Most everyone is pleased wit their crops as a whole. Diversified farming, livestock and poultry production, hogs and hominy, have put this section of the county on its feet financially.
We have seen no record of any section of the county having participants in the ton-litter contest for the County Fair. We want to go on record now as having a farmer in our midst as the champion 180-day hog producer of the county in the person of J. C. Alexander, who has made a great record with this ton-litter hogs this year. We saw the pigs weighed the other day – and believe me, he has the goods.

County Fair Interest Is Splendid
The Slate Springs Community has won the greatest and most sought after prize of the whole County Fair for the past two years. We have carried away the prizes and ribbons for the best Community Exhibits every year since the Fair was organized. We have had fine school floats and our farmers and housekeepers have secured many blue ribbons on individual exhibits. We realize that we’re going to have to hustle this year to retain our rating as THE BEST, as competition is going to be keener, and there is going to be more of it. But we’re counting on setting the pace for all contenders this year as we have in the past. Meet us as at the biggest and best Fair in the history of Calhoun – and if you can beat us, our hats are off to you and we will congratulate you on your work. If we win again, we’re going to expect your good wishes and congratulations.  – Publicity Committee

Ancestry of the Irish Vances

Ok for all of us who claim descent from the Irish Vances... here is a summary of available research on the ancestry of the family name, from the de Baux of France (doubtful) to the de Vaux who came over with William the Conqueror around 1066 (more likely) through the Vaus and Vans of Scotland (more likely yet) and on to the Vances of Ireland in the 1800s.  Apart perhaps from my editorial comments, this data agrees with the research that the Vance Family Association and Jamie Vans (current Laird of Barnbarroch) have collected.

Hello all - I added a pdf file with some research on the available records on the de Vaux family around the time of William the Conqueror, which many of you may know is the farthest link back that has been found to the source of the Irish/Scottish/English Vance name (although probably not the only origins of the Vance name!).  The research agrees with what Jamie Vans and the VFA have published (but NOT the traditional sources like William Balbirnie!).  Comments welcomed.

Leslie and May Vance, tragedy



I am looking for information on Leslie B. Vance (1/16/1878 – 11/14/1908) and his wife May Lang Vance (12/9/1877 – 3/2/1907). They are both buried at the Vance Cemetary in Slate Springs, Calhoun Co. MS. In particular, I would like to know if anyone knows how May died and who ended up raising their son Leslie Byron Vance (11/8/1899 – 9/29/1962). Leslie and May also had May’s little sister Tommie Lang living with them. She would have been 14 when May died and 15 when Leslie died. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Article in the November 19, 1908 Walthall Progressive newspaper:

Suicided:
Numberous friends here of Mr. Les. Vance, who for a number of years was a citizen of Eupora, were grieved to learn of his untimely death by suicide at Calhoun City on last Saturday afternoon.

Mr. Vance, as we understand, had been suffering from melancholia for sometime but his friends did not anticipate his taking any rash steps. On Friday night he went to his room in the Zinn hotel as usual, but upon his failure to come to breakfast Saturday morning, an investigation was made and the unfortunate man found in an unconscious state in his room with four or five empty laudanum bottles lying near. Medical aid was immediately summoned and every possible effort was made to restore consciousness and save his life, but without avail, and the end came on the afternoon of Saturday.

Leslie Vance was about thirty or thirty-one years of age. For a number of years he held a responsible position here with Messrs. T. W. Foard & Co., during which time he gave promise of splendid business ability. Later he moved to Memphis, and while there business reversed and misfortunes came. Two years ago he returned to Mississippi. About a year and a half ago, his wife, who was a Miss May Lang, reared in this city, died, leaving him a little son about eight years old, who is now left parentless.

Leslie was popular here and his many friends deeply regret his death.

The Civil War in Calhound County

A True Civil War Story
A Night Drive in Calhoun
Written by “Memorist” 
(Printed in the Calhoun Monitor July 1, 1909)
Recopied in The Monitor-Herald July 26, 1984.
 
 

For something like three years, the eventful Civil War had been waging.

The great South, whose daring sons were still fighting for principle and whose mothers and daughters were heroically suffering from want of clothes and food lay a practical waste.  The great armies of Sherman, Grant and others had ceaselessly torn the South to pieces and everywhere in her broad domain, desolation, privation, destitution and dreary waste prevailed in abundance.

In the month of March, 1864, a column of Yankee soldiers out on a plundering expedition had left the main body of Federal troops near Holly Springs and headed South.  It was reported that they were making their way to our county.

The little town of Pittsboro looked like a forsaken thing in an endless stretch of desert.  The March wind whistled sharply around the corners of the forsaken buildings, which had been left in many instances to the mercy of goats, and now and then, a creaking shutter on the courthouse banged to with a snap.

In the afternoon on this particular day, I was standing on the street corner looking away toward Coffeeville, from whence a distant dull boom of cannon was wafted on the air for the report was true and a battle was being fought a little North of Coffeeville.

I was approached by Judge J. S. Ryan who wanted to know if I could drive an ox wagon on a particular errand.  “I have already made arrangements for W. A. Sumners team”, said he, “And I want you to load all the records of our county into the wagon and take them to a point in Yalobusha bottom which “old Sam” (a trusty servant of the Rev. “Uncle Tommy” Goar) will show you.

I told him I could take them and he said,” The, let us get ready at once. The Yankees are now at Coffeeville and may come here at any time, and if they do they will certainly destroy all our records etc.”

So I promptly hitched the team designated, which consisted of three yoke of big oxen.  I drove up to the fence that then surrounded the courthouse at the East side, and with the help of several men, piled everything that looked like County records, deed books, etc. into the great bed of the wagon.

When I left the streets it was late in the afternoon and the air was becoming chilly. I felt very lonely, for there was no one with me.

I shall never forget the way I felt when I reached a point in the road between Pittsboro and where Calhoun City now stands, some two miles south of Pittsboro.  I remember perfectly well how the slanting rays of the setting sun threw mine and my teams shadows on the objects along the roadside; from off to the left the love-cry of a shy quail tremblingly echoed over the bleak hills; I knew perfectly well that dark would overtake me before I could reach the creek which was overflowing on account of continual rains; so I traveled slowly along the muddy road and wondered how I was going to cross that stream.

As fortune would have it, I reached the stream a little before dark and immediately put my team in the water.  They went slowly in and all but the “wheelers” made it to the bank on the opposite side.  They could get no footing on account of the slippery banks and my wagon was mired down.  I tried every way I knew to get it out and finally sat down to consider what I had best do next, when from down the bottom came a cherry “Hello!”, and you may rest assured that I was glad to hear this.  The man was Abe Crutchfield and we set to work to get the wagon out, in which we were finally successful, and after thanking my helper, I again started out.

I reached the hospitable home of “Uncle Tommy” Goar near where Prof. Beasley now lives soon after dark.  The ground on which the thriving little town of Calhoun City now stands, was then in open cultivation.

Here I got “Old Sam” and with a big torch made of cypress boards, we started on, for I was determined to end my mission that night.

He led me down into the bottom near where the depot (at Calhoun  City) now stands – [Editor’s note: Where the Calhoun county Co-op is located in 1984], and after a long time spent in urging the jaded team on, and winding around in the bottom, the negro said, “We’s here, Boss.”  I looked up and by the aid of the torch, made out a very rough building known as a “boat house.”

“Wait a minute, boss, and I’ll start a fire,” which he did in a remarkably short while, and the tiny blaze soon grew until it shifted everything in the bare room to light.

He then removed a portion of the “puncheon” floor and we set to work to piling in the books under the house.  We finished, put out the fire and started back.  At promptly 12 midnight, the creaking wagon was stopped at the door of my host, and we put the oxen into the stables, where fee d had already been placed in their trough.

***

After the war was ended, when a body of half-naked, tough noble men who had gone joyfully forward to fight for an outraged country,  had retuned to the arms of suffering wives and mothers and hungry children to face a tottering civilization; after a year of so of hopeless misery and despair under the carpet-bag rule, the County of Calhoun began to stand on a slight footing, and after another year or so of steady gaining, the books, records, deeds, etc. that I had hidden were brought back, but they were so hopelessly mixed up that the County employed Judge Duberry to straighten them up, which took him something like a year.

GREAT STORY about our ancestors from Mrs. Kathleen Mason!

Ms. Kathleen...if you see this, you will have to forgive me for telling your story early. I plan to repeat it at the Reunion. Many folks who are attending don't have a computer anyway....and others who live far away will surely want to know this wonderful little story! Keep 'em coming! Fondly, Kim
 
DEAR KIM,
 HERE IS A LITTLE INFORMATION YOU CAN SHARE AT THE REUNION: THIS STORY WAS TOLD TO ME BY MY FIRST COUSIN W.E. VANCE(JR.) HE ENJOYED LISTENING TO THE OLD MAN TALK ABOUT FAMILY LORE. THE TIMEFRAME IS 1833-34. WILLIAM VANCE AND HIS SONS AND JOHN P. VANCE AND HIS SON WILLIAM LEFT HERE FAMIIES IN ALABAMA AND CAME TO MS TO BUILD A HOME FOR EACH FAMILY. THEY BUILT WILLIAMS HOME FIRST AND THEN JOHN P.'S HOME. THEY THEN RETURNED TO ALABAMA TO MOVE THE FAMILIES TO MS. THEY LEFT JOHN P. 'S 13 YEAR OLD SON WILLIAM M.C. VANCE TO CLEAR THE LAND AROUND THE HOUSE THERE WAS A MANN FAMILY NEAR BY AND SOME FRIENDLY INDIANS. AT NIGHT WOLVES WOULD SCTRACH ON THE DOOR BECAUSE THERE WAS FRESH MEAT INSIDE. WHAT  WAY FOR A 13 YEAR OLD TO MATURE IN A HURRY.
 THE JOHN P VANCE HOUSE THAT THEY BUILT HAS BEEN OCCUPIED SINCE THAT TIME. IT HAD A CHIMNEY ON BOTH ENDS , ONE OF THE CHIMNEY'S HAVE NOT BEEN REPAIRED TIL THIS DAY. I WILL SEND YOU A PHOTO AT A LATER DATE. I THOUGHT YOU WILL GET A CHUCKLE OUT OF THIS.

Dear Kim,
 
William is a name that has been handed down through our family for generations.  Our first ancestor that I know of came through Philidelphia and his name was John he married a Jones and was married at the 1st Presterian Chuch then meeting the the Barbatos Warehouls.  Luckily they kept records which were taken to the church when it was built.
 
His son Matthew married Barbara McVey and last lived in Spartanburgh South Carolina. In about 1830 Matthew moved up near his brother John in Western North Carolina and East Tenn near Spruce Pine, N.C.  John family had land in North Carolina and Tenn near Roan Mountain.
 
I have some dna 67 markers done through the Vance Project.  Our group is over 720 years removed from the main line from Wigtonshire, Scotland up to Edinburgh.  I have a feeling our line was a son that did not inherit the famlily holdings and titles.I beliee they later moved to Northern Ireland and came to the U.S. about 1730.
 
Todd is planning a trip back to North Carolina in the near future.  I told him I have too much material to e-mal but I will be happy to copy it form him to share when he comes. 
 
Since I am in charge of the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games I will not be able to correspond very much until after July 13th.  I will include a couple of direct links to give you an idea of what goes on at a highland games.

Memories from Joyce Laws, daughter of Helen Vance, daughter of James (Jim) Burris Vance

Kim, the Pryors were realted to my Dad.  Mary Lou Bradford was a Shaw from the same area.  Her father was Dr. Shaw-traveled all over the area in a buggy visiting his patients. The Pryor Funeral Home in Calhoun City handled most of the funeral arrangements for our family.  I'm going to call the funeral home and see if they can tell me the name of the graveyard were the Richardsons are buried.  I think it is called Bethel Cemetery or Pleasant Hill Cemetery.  Daddy went to school at the Pleasant Hill School. I've been there several times, however it has been a long time ago.

I took Mother, Margo and Aunt Alene to the Vance Cemetery a number of years ago and we actually had a picnic in the "little chapel" on the grounds.  It had no sides, just a roof and little wooden benches.  It was very sweet and I remember thinking that I wouldn't mind being buried there.  After we left the Vance Cemetery we drove to another small town and went into the funeral home there and they told us how to get to the Rogers Family Cemetery (Mammy's family).  It was also very pretty and well maintained. The next day we drove to the Delta area (Drew, Vance, Marigold (Sunflower Plantation) and Parchman prision.  At one point (besides farming) Grandaddy Vance was in charge of the "blood-hounds" at the prision.  Mammy told me that she would make "dog bread" to feed the dogs.  It was made with white cornmeal and water..actually very good with turnip greens and potliquor over it.

Mammy's father was a highway engineer.  He constructed most of the roads along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  She told me that they lived in the Slate Springs area during the school year and that in the summer they would go to the area where he was working and spend the summer with him.  They constructed "camps" for the workers and their families.

Grandmother Richardson (Viola Eason) was given a section of land by her parents when she married Grandaddy.  Great Grandfather Eason gave each of his children a section of land when they married. I have heen to the old Eason Homestead..the only thing left standing was the chimney. That's how they came to own the farm.  Grandaddy Richardson was an only child.  I'll share with the family the story he told me about his life, the Civil War, etc.  It's very interesting. During the Civil War his Mother took him via wagon (with the slaves along) to travel to Texas to join family members.  They got as far as Clarendon, Arkansas when the yellow fever epedemic his this area..everyone died but Grandaddy and his Mother.  She put him in the saddle with her, buried those who had died and the two of them rode a horse all the way to Texas.  She left everything behind. I went to the cemetery in Clarendon with Daddy and Grandaddy when I was about 12 years old.

I have often thought that she must have been a very couragous woman and wish that I could have known her.  I know that when they got to Texas they stayed with someone Grandaddy referred to as "Great Aunt Molly".  It was in the area around Houston.  After the war they returned to Mississippi.

I am so enjoyed all of the articles that you have been sending to me.  Thanks so very much.

Love

Aunt J

Surnames:

My GGGGGM was Mary McAnulty (1784-1863), who married William Vance (1786-1844) in SC and subsequently settled in what is now Calhoun County ( then, Chickasaw County) MS in the early 1840’s. This family is well documented by William McCain in his books. McCain indicates that one of William Vance’s brothers, John Vance may have moved to Carroll County, MS after 1840.

In the December, 1995 edition of the Chester District (SC) Genealogical Society Bulletin there is an article submitted by W.E. Vance of Grenada MS in which he states that his GGGGF John P. Vance moved to Carroll Co. MS by 1836. He states that John P. Vance had brothers William, James Alexander, Jr. and Adam (b. PA ca. 1781) and three unnamed daughters; and that their father James Alexander Vance was born ca. 1755 in Ireland or PA.. He also states that this John P. Vance married Isabella McAnulty. Their children are given in this source as William, James, John G., George, Elizabeth and Mary.

The federal Censuses of 1850 and 1860 show John Vance and his children in Carroll Co., MS. These records indicate that both John Vance and his wife, Isabella Vance, were born in SC in 1795. The marriage records of the same county show the various marriages of their children. In addition, the 1860 census shows a Robert McNulty (b. 1786 in SC) living with William M.C. Vance (John Vance’s son).

The will abstract book for Carroll Co., MS indicates that on May 16, 1864, Robert McNulty gave a nuncupative will which named as his heirs his sisters Isabella Vance and Polly Vance. My GGGGGM Mary Vance, wife of William Vance died on November 29, 1863. Such a will is an oral will given before witnesses in situations where that testator is too ill to wait on a formal documentation. It is possible that he may not have known of Mary Vance’s death. I have found no definitive record of Robert’s whereabouts prior to 1860.

The 1790 census of SC shows a James Vance in Camden District, York Co. page 28. The 1800 census of Chester Co., SC shows James Vaunce on page 77 along with, among others, Ehuphwel (prob. Churchill) Carter, John Carter and Robert and Walter Tindale. There are no McAnultys shown.

The 1810 census of Chester Co., SC shows Aaron McNulty on page 259. On this same page are James Vance, Thomas Carter, Thomas Knight, Henry Mitchel, Charles H. Sims, Joseph Yarbrough. The land records for Chester Co., SC indicate that, in 1818. James Vance, Sr. sold contiguous tracts of land to John, Adam and James Vance and a separate tract to William. The 1820 census shows Betsy McNulty near William Vance. I believe that all of these tracts were in the Sealy’s Creek ( a tributary of Sandy Creek/River) area which would be near Baton Rouge, SC.. The 1830 census for Chester Co., SC shows E. McAnulty on page 313 and A. Vance on page 307. John and William Vance were, by then, in Pickens Co., AL.

I am pursuing a theory that Isabella, Mary and Robert McAnulty were siblings and were born in SC. Any thoughts or corrections would be appreciated.

Margaret Vance

Kimberley, Hi, I saw your recent posting on the VANCE/rootsweb postings and it sounds like you have quite a bit of VANCE data. My G G Grandmother was Margaret VANCE. She was born 10 Oct 1771 in Kentucky, married to David RUSK in 1793 in either Kentucky or Indiana and died 13 Sep 1832 in Waynetown, Montgomery County, IN and buried in Pioneer Cemetery, Waynetown County. They had 13 childrein including my G Grandfather Jonathan RUSK. David RUSK was born in Kentucky 10 May 1769 and died 10 Apr 1836.

Now I am have not been able to go beyond Margaret and would appreciate it if you could let me know if you have any information on a VANCE woman who married a RUSK (or it could have been RUSH at that time). I know it's a long shot. Thanks so much.

William and Mary Vance

William Vance (1786-1844) and Mary G. McAnulty (1784-1863)

I am looking for any information that anyone may have on William Vance (1786-1844)and Mary G. McAnulty (1784-1863). I know his father's name was James Alexander Vance(abt 1755-1821). And I am lost after that.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Denise,

Look at message 2353 on this forum, there is some info there regarding William & Mary.

William is the son of James Alexander Vance who died in PA abt 1821. So far as I know there has been no documentation as to who James' father may be, although there may be some kinship to Patrick Vance of Donegal, Ireland who married Elizabeth Houston.

I descend from William's son Adam, so I don't have much info on William, but there are several people who have and are still researching James Alexander and his descendents, so I am sure someone will be willing to help you however needed.

Happy Huntin',
Leanna

_______________________________________________________
To correct previous message, I descend from JAMES' son Adam, (not William's). OOPS!!

Leanna

 

_____________________________________________________________
Thank you, Leanne. I descend from Adam, too, and I have a lot of info up to William and Mary. If you would like to bounce info off each other, shoot me an email. I am also interested to see how closely we may be related.

____________________________________________________________________________
Hi,

I do apologise if I've already emailed you about this; I'm beginning to lose track of where I've got to in my list of people to contact.

I'm starting to try to collate some of the Scottish, Irish, American and other overseas Vances in the hope of finally sorting out the connection between them/you and my family of Vans of Barnbarroch. You may be familiar with the work I have already done on the Scottish side of the family which can be found at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~vfarch and with my published paper, "The Origin of the Irish Vances".

I am co-ordinating my work as far as I can with that of the Vance DNA research project - for further details of that, see http://www.vancegenealogy.com/index.php. I would urge any male Vances to take a look at the website and consider having a DNA test done as this seems to be a potentially useful tool in untangling the truth of the matter.

I would also be very grateful if any of you Vance descendants would be prepared to share your data with me, preferably as a gedcom file to save me re-typing it all.

Best wishes to all members of the Vans/Vance family,

Jamie Vans of Barnbarroch.

James Alexander Vance was the third person to have that name. He was named for his grandfather James Alexander Vance, Jr. who was the youngest son of James A. Vance, Sr. of Chester Co., SC. James A. Jr. married Susanna Pressley and they moved to AL and then MS. Their son Thomas Pressley Vance was the father of your James A. Vance. Thomas' wife was Nancy Evaline Minter, daughter of Elizabeth Orr and Jacob Minter who are buried in Chester, SC. I am descended from the older brother of James A. Vance, Jr. William, my ancestor, and his brother John P. Vance migrated to AL in 1821 and then to MS. William settled in Chickasaw Co. and John P. in Carroll Co. The information about Thomas Pressley Vance was printed in the Vance Family Association Newsletter and came from his grandson. My research has disclosed that another Vance brother, Thomas, who died young married an aunt of Susanna Pressley. The name is sometimes listed in early records as Preston. This family were neighbors of the Vances in SC. The immediate origin of James A. Vance, Sr. has not been determined, but he was related to Vances in PA who can be traced to Ireland.

I am a descendant of William Vance [Jan. 7, 1786/Aug. 23, 1844] who married Mary G. McAnulty [July 28, 1784/Nov. 29, 1863] in Chester Co., SC about 1810. They had 6 children in SC before relocating to Pickens Co., AL in 1821. These children were Isabella H. Vance, James Vance, Michael M. Vance [named for Mary's father Michael McAnulty], Adaline Vance, and twins William Harvey and Adam Burris Vance. In AL they had 2 more children Robert Milton Vance and Jane Angeline Vance. My line is that of Adam Burris Vance [July 2, 1821/ Feb. 13, 1889] who married Sarah (Sallie) Fox [Feb. 24, 1823/Mar. 5, 1901] in Slate Spring, MS on Jan. 8, 1846. They were parents of 5 children: William Joseph Vance (my great-grandfather), James Burris Vance (who became a judge in AR), George Harvey Vance, Mary Margaret Vance (who married John Thomas McCord), and Theodosia Elvira Vance (who never married). My mother remembered visiting her Aunt Molly McCord who had a number of children. She was born Nov. 2, 1851 and died Jan. 4, 1943. Almost all of these Vances are buried in the Vance Cemetery in Slate Spring, MS. I am presently writing a history that will include the Vance family.

Old Family Photo. Can any of you answer her question?

Mom (Lora Arnold) and I have this tin type from Calhoun County circa 1890.  We know it is either a Vance or a Lane.  Would you see if anyone recognizes the person.  It is a very odd tin type in that it is very large (8 ½ X 6 ¼ inches).

Thanks,
Mary Miller [Mary.B.Miller@us.army.mil]

MARY ELIZABETH VANCE was my Great Aunt. Her Fther was JAMES ALEXANDER VANCE III
and her Mother was MARY NEAL VANCE. Mary Elizabeth was born ca 1853. JAMES
ALEXANDER was killed in the Civil War on DECEMBER 1, 1863 at FRANKLIN TENN. MARY
and her children moved to SUNFLOWER COUNTY during the 1870's. Mary later married
WILLIAM H. LEACH and  died FEBRUARY 27, 1901 and WILLIAM died in 1911. They both
are buried in the  FAIRVIEW CEMETARY NEAR SHAW MISSISSIPPI IN SUNFLOWER COUNTY.
We have no record of MARY ELIZABETH after the family moved to SUNFLOWER COUNTY.
I have complete histor of the rest of the family and would be interested in the
history on MARY ELIZABETH and HORACE TAYLOR.

About Our Past

Here's the place to include stories and photos or our ancestors. Hey...big news! Several people from all over the country have expressed interest in attending the Vance Family Reunion in Slate Springs, MS this Memorial Day weekend (09)! So far they are from CA, NC and Vance, MS!!!!

I just learned a sweet little fact from Jerry Vance the other night. Did you know that every single year for as long as he can remember (over 50...we won't give Jerry's age away) they have a Memorial at the local cemeteries. I had no idea that this was such a huge southern tradition. He says they start around the first of May and go all they way into June or July? Family groups go to visit and maintain the old cemeteries of their ancestors. They have a little Memorial service and place flowers on the graves. Our Vance Cemetery Memorial is the 1st Sunday of May every year.

Book & Memorabilia Inventory & orders

Hi cousins!

Thanks for all of the sweet thank you notes about the Reunion! I am so glad that you had a good time and can't wait for all of us to get together again!

Many of you are requesting copies of the books that were at the Reunion. Here is what I know so far:

1. The Vance "Bible", Eight Generations of the Family of William Vance and His Wife, Mary G. McAnulty Vance of South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi by William D. McCain, 1974 can be purchased through:

The University of Southern Mississippi

McCain Library & Archives

118 College Drive #5148

Hattisburg, MS 39406

Ph: 601.266.5077

Speak with Mrs. Peggy Price, Curator, Special Collections

I ordered mycopy and got it right away!

In addition, they have many other books you may be interersted in! These include books about the Fox, Shaw, Talley, McCain & Lenz Families. Peggy can give you the list!

 

2.  Shutispear, A History of the Life and Times of Robert Shelton Vance & Susie Ella Dillard by David May, Starkville, MS 2008. The cost of the book is 25.oo which includes shipping. Anyone who wishes to order a book can contact me at: David May, 3651 Reform Road, Sturgis, MS 39769 or 662-418-2544 or by email.   shutispear@hughes.net  

 

3.  Mrs. Jan Francis took orders for the pertinant section of her book during the reunion. Here is a breif description and the cost as well as her Email address so you can contact her for your personal copy of her book!

Kim, I am still savoring memories of our time together in Slate Springs but not savoring the itchy legs that have resulted from the visit to the Fox family cemetery.  Camille and Carlton, cousins rather than siblings, and Max and I visited 9 cemeteries in all in the two days we were there.   Their Clark family cemetery yielded new information that led Max to the internet and discovery of 13 generations showing that they are related to the same progenitor through both the Fox-Vance side and the Clark side.  You are also descended from this same Christopher Clark through Margaret Crossland, Jim Vance's great grandmother. 
 
Since I am going through all my papers in preparation for moving to a much smaller place, I am already noting additions and revisions for the book.  Here are the families in the book beginning with one of the first settlers in Jamestown and proceeding through a governor of the VA colony to the Fox line and the Vance line and their allied families through the wives:
 
Croshaw
West
Fox
Kendrick
Claiborne
Avent
Johnson
Goodwyn
Carroll
Harrell
Cottrell
Crossland
McAnulty
Vance
Moore
 
Each of these families is profiled with some having considerable detail.  In some cases, I have learned a good bit since the original edition was printed.  Depending on the status of selling my house and moving (in late July and August), I will work on the revisions as soon as possible.  I will be happy to have Vance relatives contact me through email.  My home telephone number presently is (864) 576-2604, but it will be changed when I move across town.  I checked on printing and postage and estimate that $20 should cover my cost.  NOTHING will ever cover the cost of the time I have devoted to this venture!
 
Surprised Exclamation UPDATED INFO FROM JAN SEPT 29, 2009!!!!!
PER JAN:  I have finally completed the revisions of the Vance section of the Vance-Taylor book and will take it to be printed right away.  Please let me know if there is anyone else in your family interested in having a copy before I order the final printing.  Also let me know if your mailing address is the same as the one you gave me in May.  I'm sorry it has taken me so long to do this project, but I have been in the midst of a MAJOR downsizing and moving to an apartment in a retirement village.  You will notice my new address at the end of the preface.  Everything has changed except for the email address.  All of this big disposal job was in addition to a big family wedding and hosting  my children in July and August.  I hope you will be pleased with the chapters on thirteen of our mutual families that will be in the mail to you soon.   I plan to put the pages into looseleaf notebooks so you can add more data of your own. I do appreciate your patience.  Sincerely, Jan

ADDITIONAL INFO- Kim, the revision consists of 87 pages- Vance and Allied Families. It begins with my 3rd generation back, my grandmother, who was your Jim Vance's sister and goes back to the first Vances in France. The allied families through our materal lines include those of Wealtha Mitt Moore, Sallie Fox, Mary G. McAnulty, Margaret Crossland, Annie Johnson, Sarah Harrell, Sarah Carroll, Sarah Avent, Mary Kendrick, Mary Claiborne, Anne West and Unity Croshaw. There is quite a bit of additional information that I have located since I completed the original Taylor-Vance book of 2002. The cost is $20.00 and includes shipping. My new address is 400 Webber Road, Apt. B1-6; Spartanburg, SC 29307 and my new telephone number is: (864) 579-3484!

 

Folks...please contact Jan
for your copy ASAP!!!!!!!
 
4. I am aware that other books were at the Reunion and I will find the sheet of paper that listed the Artifacts and phone numbers. Hopefully, someone entered the names of the books and who to contact. Do any of you have the info?

 

5. I recieved Mrs. Kathleen Mason's personal copy of her extensive research about the Vance family and others. I plan to take the book to a copy place and with her permission, make it available to any of you who wish to have a copy. I will only charge you my costs plus shipping to you : ) Let me know if any of you are interested. The document is far too large to scan.  I'll let you know the estimated cost.

Additional Info

Dear Kimberly,
 
Thanks for getting back to me.  What I know about the Vances is pretty much what you mentioned.  I don't know anything specific, really, as far as cities and immigration goes except for Barnbarroch.  There is a lot of controversy over the Vance family lines, especially ours.  (William Vance and his parents, whoever they may be)  I believe his parents are James Alexander Vance and Agnes McAnulty (aunt to Mary G)  And he himself cannot be definately tied (at this time, at least) to Ireland.  Although, everyone is sure that's where he came from.  I do know that the Vans people did start out in Scotland and immigrate to Ireland, but not sure when.  I will attach my Vance line of my tree in GEDCOM format so you can take a look.  It will tell you everything I know.  If you want to start with the oldest people and work your way down, the oldest males are James Alexander Vance and Unknown McAnulty (father of Mary G. McAnulty) There is a lot in the notes pages on certain people.  I will remind you in a few weeks about the pictures.  Have a safe move and I hope your house sells quickly.  I'm a Real Estate Broker in California and the market is jsut awful out here, hope it's better in Texas!  I appreciate your help and look forward to seeing the pictures.
 
Thank you,

Denise West

William Vance Family, early settlers of San Antonio, TX, info from the Texas State Historical Associ

VANCE, WILLIAM (1813–1878). William Vance, businessman, was born in Ireland on December 13, 1813, the son of John and Martha (Davis) Vance. He came to the United States with his family in 1826 and settled in New York. His father became engaged in the mercantile business, and William and his brothers followed in that line of work. With his brothers, James and John Vance, William operated establishments in both Little Rock, Arkansas, and in New Orleans under the name of Vance and Brothers. With the outbreak of the Mexican War, he was appointed commissary agent for the American forces and went to San Antonio in 1846 with Gen. Zachary Taylor's army. Following the war, he and his brothers settled permanently in San Antonio in 1848. They built and operated a mercantile store in San Antonio on Alamo Plaza. Vance and Brothers built the first army barracks in San Antonio, located at what is now the corner of Travis and St. Mary's streets. They also built a two-story building adjoining the barracks that served as an army headquarters. The building was later converted into a hotel known as the Vance House. It has remained a hotel location and is now the site of the Gunter Hotel. The Vance brothers were active in many endeavors; they operated an overland transportation system by stage, and once they contracted to return a nine-year-old boy, who had been kidnapped by Indians and rescued by Christopher (Kit) Carson, to his home in Brady, Texas. After the failure of an army project to train fifty-seven camels as prairie mounts for the cavalry, they bought most of the animals and sold them to a circus. Vance was an early business leader of San Antonio and had extensive real estate holdings. He served as city alderman from 1860 to 1862, and he was an agent for the Confederacy in export trade. Vance married Frances E. Tabor on June 4, 1856, in New York; they had a son and three daughters. Wiliam Vance died on October 2, 1878, and was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in San Antonio.

Obiturary for Ms. Thelma Vance Gabucci Cox

Miss Thelma was a very sweet woman that we were fortunate to meet. We had the pleasure of crowing her "Queen Vance" at our Family Reunion. She was an important part of our heritage and we will all miss her deeply. I know she has a beautiful crown in heaven!
Thelma Cox (1926 - 2012)


Mrs. Thelma Vance Gabucci Cox, 86, passed away Saturday, April 7, 2012 at Mississippi Baptist Medical Center in Jackson. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 AM Thursday at Grace Bible Church in Ridgeland with visitation preceding the service at 9:00 AM. A graveside service will be held at 3:00 PM Thursday at Shaw Cemetery in Shaw, MS.

Mrs. Cox, a retired beauty control consultant of 36 years, was born January 3, 1926, in Slate Springs, MS to the late Albert T. and Verna Lunceford Vance. An avid musician, she enjoyed playing piano and singing at Grace Bible Church, where she was a member, and her time singing in the Riggs Manor Choir in recent years was very special to her as well. She was also a devoted animal lover, having a particular interest in cats.

Thelma was preceded in death by her husband, Tony Gabucci; and by her sister, Theresa Vance. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Terrell Cox of Raymond; son, Jimmie Gabucci (Allyn) of Kingwood, TX; daughter, Toni Linda Sims (Donovan) of Mobile, AL; step-daughters, Nancy Lucille Cline (JW) of Clinton and LaShell Killen (Joe) of Byram. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express their appreciation for Dr. Paul Vanlandingham and the fine staff of caregivers at Mississippi Baptist Medical Center for their care and compassion during this time. Memorials may be made to Grace Bible Church, Building Fund, 380 Highland Colony Parkway, Ridgeland, MS 39157.
