One of Abner's daughters (and it is thought to have been Elizabeth) ran

---------------------------------------------------------------------------Group 2   [Click here for the Group 2 report] from this website  http://www.vancegenealogy.com/

      Group 2 consists of several distinct early American lineages,  a
few of which are able to trace back to Ireland.  The group is made up of
two branches: 2a and  2b.  Group 2a is dominated numerically by  the
descendants of Matthew Vance of Pittylsvania County, VA, and his close 
relative Abner Vance, but also contains several other significant
branches that  were in America by the mid-18th century.  Group 2b
consists of the descendants of  Samuel and Agnes (Penquite) Vance as
well as Samuel Vance of Bath Co, VA.

I know tilda vance marcum, she was my grandmother too. her father was marion vance. I knew he married a rebecca but didn't know her last name. thought it was hatfield. grandma said she was anderson hatfields granddaughter. Tilda had several children: brady, ethel, homer, goldie, rose, shirley, june. Which one is your friend's parent. I knew them all except for brady. only met ethel once. knew goldie's children, rose's children, june's children, homer's children. brady and  ethel never had children as far as I know.

Abner Vance   

Richard Vance   

Meekin Vance   

Andrew Jackson Vance   

Frances Marion Vance   

Tilda Marcum (born Vance)  



Assuming that have this correct....Nancy A. Vance Hatfield (1813-95) was the daughter of Elizebeth S. Vance(1794-1850) who was the daughter of Abner Vance (1750-1819)....Your ancestor Richard Vance (1792-1865) was Elizebeth's brother....Nancy being the Mother of Anderson Hatfield and Elizabeth his Grandmother .      



Which cousin are you? I'm Shirley's youngest daughter.
My grandmother, Virgie, was Tilda's sister. My great grandmother was Rebecca Tiiler & great grandfather was Marion Vance.
