I AM RELATED TO VANCES OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Okay, here I am again throwing it out to those folks called Vance. I need you to come forth so I can introduce you to one of your long and forgotten relatives, and that relative is ME. I am Joseph Evans. My dad was John Evans and my mom was Felicia House. John Evans, known one time as Harry Evans, had two other siblings: Ike, known as Ira, and Jessie. These three were the union of Joe Evans and Mary Vance. These were my grandparents. MARY VANCE born 1977 was the daughter of FRANK VANCE. In 1900 she was enumerated with or living with her brother ALLEN VANCE AND ALLEN'S WIFE. Along with her in the same house were her three children. FRANK VANCE was married to SOPHIE, they had other children, one in particular FRANK VANCE Jr. A Death Certificate of FRANK VANCE SR. reads that he died in 1918; that he was late 80s; and that he died in Abbeville, S.C.\ Incidentally, all of this takes place in and around ABBEVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA.
So you see here I am, not only a part of the Evans family, but of the VANCE family as well. Thanks you. Joseph
