I have not been able to find the information needed to solve this mystery. I recently wrote to a Jackson, Miss. lady-Kathlene Mason who researched the SC Vance family but she said she could not connect this Allen Vance Brooks. Her address is 4213 Eastridge Drive, Jackson, Miss. 39211. Husbands' name is Herman Vance. She called and talked to my husband and I have not heard from her since. She may be able to help you. Another researcher on the Vance line in SC is Dale & Larri Jenning 914 Vance Rd., Benton, LA 71006 email@example.com
. They were very helpfull in sending me Brooks and Vance connections-but still not what I needed to make the connections. Hope this helps.
