I am searching for the Vance who married Laura Alice Doan, dau. of Levi Henry and Elizabeth (Long) Doan. They may have married in Pawnee Co. OK (or nearby) between 1880 and 1889. They had children Joseph A Vance (1889) and Elihu Vance (1892) in OK who were living with the grandparents Doan in Pawnee, OK during the 1910 census. There mother Laura alice (Doan) Vance died in april 1895. No information is known about the father. It sounds like there may be a link with your Elihu at some point. Any clues? My only hearsay is that our Vance (father) may have been a politician in Oklahoma.

Hello Carolyn,
Elihu G Vance was my 2nd Great Grandfather. He was born c. 1802 in SC and married Jane Harrington. We think he died on the way to Texas in the 1850's for he is not known in the cemetry at Millican in Braos Co, TX.

It is great when somebody comes up with something about him. Have you anything on his family. I can send you loads if it will help.

I have not come across your F.N.Vance who married E.V.Robb.

Are you a member of the Vance Family Association in USA? Although I live in Australia I get a lot of info through my membership.

Hi there! My name is Alyson Vance and i live in Houston, Texas. I see you posted this in 1999 but i'm new to this genealogy thing and just started looking for the Vance family. My dad was Dave Louis Vance,Jr. His dad was of course DLV,Sr., his dad was Allen Vance, his dad Charles H. Vance, and his dad is Elihu G. Vance. That is where i'm kinda stuck. I went on Ancestry.com and it said his dad was James Vance born around 1760 in North Carolina and Died 1833 in South Carolina. That is Elihu was born so it sounds right. I'm just wondering if this is correct. Said his dad was Samuel and his dad Andrew, John, then Lancelot. If all that is true, i went all the way back to 1010 when the name was DeVaux in Normandy, France. And Sir Patrick Vans married Lady Mary or Margaret Kennedy who is eventually related to "The Boston Kennedy's" Just wondering if i'm on the right track.
