George W. Vance 1807 - 1853

George W. Vance 1807 - 1853

Surnames: VANCE, RANSOM, PARCHMAN
I am trying to see who my George W. Vance belongs to and to see if anyone else is "working" on his line. Here is what I know:

George W. Vance b. 1807 SC died Feb 1853 Chickasaw Co., MS was married to Mary L. UNKNOWN b. abt 1811 SC died aft. 1880, perhaps in Alabama.

They had at least:

Jasper Vance b. aft 1834 TN d. aft 1850

Mary A. M. Vance b 13 Jan 1837 TN d. 21 Dec 1855 MS - married George W. Parchman and had daughters Mary E. & Lucy Parchman

Allice E. Vance b. 20 Jun 1840 TN d. Aft 1880 - married William Mills Ransom in Monroe Co., MS 2 Dec 1857 (they had 6 children and this is my line)

William J. L. Vance b. abt 1841 MS d. aft 1860

Asa Vance b. abt 1843 MS d. Aft 1880

Tennessee Vance (female) b. abt 1846 MS d. 1858 MS

Fountain G. Vance (male) b. abt 1850 MS d. 1856 MS

The family is found in the 1850 US Fed census in Monroe County, MS. George W. Vance was a large plantation owner and his lands were in both Monroe & Chickasaw Cos., MS. After his death in 1853, Mary & son Asa are found in the 1860 Monroe Co., MS census and Mary is also listed on the Slave Schedules of same and has 7 slaves.

There was a lawsuit filed in Monroe Co., MS over the distribution of George's estate. The Parchman girls, Mary & Lucy, and their Aunt Allice E. Vance Ransom were plaintiffs and it was a long drawn-out suit over the plantation primarily, ending only with a Mississippi Supreme Court decision. Luckily for me, the files from this suit survive and I found them in the basement of the Monroe County Courthouse a couple of years ago. They explain the family structure of George's children, give dates of birth and death, etc.

I don't know much else about the children of George W. & Mary Vance (except for Allice) and would really like to know something about his sons. Asa Vance is found in the 1880 census in Alabama with his mother but beyond that, I don't know what happened to them.

From the places of birth for these Vance children, George & Mary Vance spent some time in Tennessee but where? Does anyone recognize this bunch of the Vance family?

Thanks for any help!

Dear Allison,

I'm happy to say that I do recognise this Vance family and that I can add quite a lot to what you have: three generations of ancestors and a fair sprinkling of cousins. And also that you have already added some facts to what I have too.

You should note that there are only two sources for this info: first, Mary Vance, who has been most helpful. I will point her to this exchange as you might have things to discuss, and the book by Harriet D. 'Brentley' Lane. I guess I should suggest that you check anything you can!

I can't add anything more recent to what you have.

The most useful thing would be to trace a male Vance descendant; a DNA test would then show which main trunk of the various Vance families, this one is. See the DNA site at http://www.vancegenealogy.com/index.php for more details.

Good luck with you research and please keep me posted if you find any more.

Regards,
Jamie.

Thanks so much! Just for future reference, and for posterity, the court case I found (and got confirmation of other info I'd researched and dug out on this Vance family) is styled:

The State of Mississippi
Monroe County
Chancery Court
July Term, 1875
Case #1607

Short title:
Mary E. Watts, et al
vs.
W. J. L. Vance, et al

Long title:

Mary E. Watts and Jno. S. Watts her husband
Lucy Parchman a minor
by Jno. S. Watts her next friend
All Citizens of Chickasaw
County, State of Mississippi,
Alice E. Ransom and
W. M. Ransom her husband
Citizen of Monroe County, Miss
vs
Wm. J. L. Vance whose residence is unknown & can't
be ascertained, Asa Vance a
Citizen of Morgan County & State of Alabama and
R. M. Gunn a Citizen of
Chickasaw Co., Mississippi

And just for clarification, Mary E. Parchman (dau of Mary A. M. Vance Parchman - George W. Vance's dau) married Jno. S. Watts "during her minority".

I had to recently reformat my computer and my genealogy software is not working quite up to speed just yet, but data is preserved! I have tried to "run" each of George W. Vance's children thru as many records as I can find. I already mentioned the 1850 & 1860 Monroe Co., MS US Fed census records where they were located. If my memory isn't too far off, I believe Mary Vance (widow) and son Asa are still in Monroe Co., MS in 1870 and are in Morgan Co., AL in 1880, or thereabouts. I have not yet been able to locate the son, William J. L. Vance (reportedly still living in 1875 in the lawsuit).

My Alice E. Vance Ransom is found in 1850 with her parents in Monroe Co., MS, and then with her husband in 1860 in Bedford Co., TN with their young son (his home area). By 1870 they are back in Monroe Co., MS for the census and are still found there in 1880. I have found a crop mortgage in that same county in 1886 by William Mills Ransom, and then lose them in records after that. If they were there as late as 1900, I haven't been able to find them in any records.

I have tracked the RANSOM line all the way down to the present, though, and can share that info if you (or anyone else) would like to have it.

I descend from Alice, so would not be able to do DNA stuff. If Alice's brother Asa Vance had any children, I've not found them. He's listed as single in 1880 census. And the bunch that filed the lawsuit in 1875 weren't sure where the son William J. L. Vance was then, and I've not found him, either! So it looks like my bunch may be a dead end for DNA.

I had suspected that my George W. Vance was likely to end up being placed with the Giles Co., TN bunch but wasn't absolutely certain. Thanks again for sharing! And if you would like to add what I have researched (and sourced) from George W. Vance on down, let me know and I will send it off this board, if you'll email me at: alisax@commspeed.net

Best wishes,
Allison

Thanks, Allison.

I'll stick with the info I have - I don't do female descendants, only male lines and there's planety of that!

But if you ever find any males....

Best wishes,
Jamie.

Hi Allison,

I'm working on the Parchman family and I'm wondering if you know who this A. A. Parchman is at Find A Grave, buried in Citizen's Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Pa...;

Am I confusing Parchman families? :-) I have a couple daughters, sisters to Mary E. and Lucy, but the cemetery has a son, R. D. I know George W. married Octavia Simonton later, but I'm having trouble untangling his first marriage.

Thanks for any light you can shed. :-)

I think George's first wife was my Mary A. M. Vance. His second wife was Anna A. UNKNOWN. Here's what I've found on them:

Descendants of George W. PARCHMAN

1-George W. PARCHMAN b. Abt 1830, Mississippi

par. George W. VANCE and Mary L. THOMPSON
|--2-Mary E. PARCHMAN b. Abt 1847, Mississippi
| +John S. WATTS b. 1835, North Carolina, m. Bef Jul 1875
|--2-Lucy PARCHMAN b. Abt 1855, Mississippi
+Anna A. UNKNOWN b. Abt 1830-1840, Mississippi, m. 1855-1859
|--2-R. A. S. PARCHMAN b. Abt 1859, Mississippi
|--2-Ella PARCHMAN b. Abt 1864, Mississippi
|--2-Clarence W. PARCHMAN b. Abt 1877, Mississippi
|--2-Edgar L PARCHMAN b. Abt 1879, Mississippi

I haven't worked on these folks lately so I'll pull out my paper records and double check. I found them on the 1880 Chickasaw Co., MS census - don't think I found them in 1870?? Have to check.

I'm not sure about R. D. Parchman.

I'm also not sure what happened to Mary Vance Parchman's daughters. Do you?

Thanks,
Allison

Hi again, Allison,

The person I am working on is Edgar Laurence Parchman, youngest child of George W. His granddaughter has given me quite a bit of info on him and we know his (Edgar) mother was Jane Octavia Simonton. She is buried in Citizen's cemetery--so do you think George W. had 3 wives? You can see George and Octavia in the 1880 census, still in Okolona, Chickasaw County, MS.

The granddaughter, now in her 80s, remembers her grandfather and I have his obit, etc., etc. Octavia was the name of her mother and also her sister--it's a name that has come down in the family. BUT Edgar ended up in Oklahoma and while his granddaughter remembers going back a few times when she was young, her grandmother died young and so the contact was not all that strong.

Truthfully, I have not searched for these earlier daughters and was pleased to find your postings online.

I found George W. and AA on the 1860 census--with 3 children,--M. E., Lucy and R.A.S.--all listed as females.

In 1870 he is living with Anna and children Dora, Ella (I think this is Mary E of earlier censuses) and Lucy.
