I am looking for the ancestors of Mary Ellen McCance. Mary Ellen married Jacob Stauffer April 11, 1866. Her parents were James A. McCance born 1811 in Ohio and Margaret Sarah Garner b. Jan 12, 1830. James died in Cass County, Mo. in 1872. I believe James was the son of a William McCance. I have been unable to find anything more on William or his family. James did have a brother named David born ca 1815. Does anyone have any more information on this branch? I would sincerely appreciate any help.

William Father of James

There are Two William McCance-s that were born in the 1700s and living in ohio that could be the father to James, but I believe it is the one listed below the descendants of James report.
Also there could be more children that I don't know about.
I hope this helps.
If there are mistakes please let me know

Came across your posting of 4/8/2001. Here is what I have on William McCance, father of James Armstong McCance.
William was living in Hamilton Co. Ohio when he obtained land grants in Hancock Co. Indiana in 1826 & 1827. He appears in the census for Hancock Co. in 1830 & 1840. He married Nellie (Eleanor) Armstrong in Butler Co. Ohio in April, 1805. Tombstone records for Sugarcreek Township in Hancock Co. list:

William McCance, born 1/21/1756, died 2/27/1844
Eleanor McCance, no dates
Mary McCance, born 10/11/1812, died 8/22/1840

The 1756 birth date for William is probably a transcription error as the 1830 & 1840 census records indicate the he was born between 1770 & 1780. Also, he would have been 49 when he married and his last child would have been born when he was 75. The date is more likely 1776.

From marriage and land records I have the following children:

James, born 10/24/1808
Catherine, born 1/13/1811 (my grgreatgrandmother)
Mary, born 10/11/1812
David, born 1/25/1815
John, born 2/24/1818
Margaret Ann, born 3/10/1820
Elizabeth, born 4/12/1822
William B., born 8/3/1824
Hester Ann, 5/5/1827
Frances Ellen, 5/25/1831
I came across another posting on ancestry.com quoting a bible which confirms the above listing and contains two additional children; Jane, born 5/8/1807 and William W., born 3/8/1817.

William's father was probably David McCance, Sr., born ca 1825. I recently tapped into another family tree which has fairly extensive info on the acestors of Eleanor Armstrong.

Any additional info that I have on this family you are welcome to.

I can fill in some of the James McCance family tree also, but am just learning to navigate on Rootsweb - does it all have to be handtyped in, or can it be cut and pasted into a message? Also, need to learn how to contact individuals who post messages - can someone enlighten me? Thanks!
My husband's great-grandmother was Martha Anna McCance Williams, a daughter of James and Margaret Garner McCance.

I am a great-great grandson of James Armstrong McCance. I have seen and photographed his grave in Garden City,MO. He died of pneumonia. Have you seen the book "No Time On My Hands" by Nellie Yost?
The book is about Grace McCance Snyder who was one of Jame's granddaughters.

Hi Lowell.

What branch do you hail from? I have quite a bit of information from other descendants but always searching for more.

Yes I have read the book "No Time On My Hands". Nellie also has a number of other books she has written. I enjoyed "Pinnacle Jake" a story about her father. Nellie's sisters Billie and Bertie live in the North Platte area. I have had the opportunity to meet them both. Billie is also an author and her books are stories about growing up in the sand hills of Nebraska. They are great fun to read. Would ove more information.

Bob, I've been working on this same family the past couple of weeks and have been trying to prove the children in the Bible records you mentioned. I have a photocopy of the records, which I received from my grandmother in 2001. For some reason I wasn't finding the pieces I needed to place them, but in the past couple of weeks I've stumbled onto all the records you folks have mentioned and I believe I have the children placed. I'm looking at the same couple you mention as the parents (William McCance and wife Eleanor).

If you're still around, I'd like to swap information and I can send you a copy of the Bible records if you're interested. My uncle has the Bible. Unfortunately half of it is missing (including the title page and copyright page), but I have a copy of all the records that were still with the remaining part.

Thanks!

Hi, I am still around. Since my last contact I have made some inroads in the ancestry of William McCance. In the 1800 teritorial census for Ohio there are listed the names of David, John, and two William McCances. On October 15, 1811, a David McCance made an affidavit wherein he certified that his father, William McCance of York County, Pennsylvania served in the French and Indian War in the First Company of Col. John Armstrong's regiment and that he enlisted in February 1758. This affidavit was made in Morgan Township, Butler County, Ohio. Since our William was married in Butler County, I feel, although I have no proof, that William, the father of David, is also the father of William, the junior, and that William, the senior, is the son of David. Also, a Samual McCance was living in Hamilton County, Ohio and the same time as our William and is likely another son of William, the senior.
Mull this over and let me know what you think. If you wish, you can respond to my e-mail address: vrofish@verizon.net
