About Clement Vann

CLEMENT3 VANN, b. March 05, 1746/47, Spring Place, GA; d. Abt. 1832, Spring Place, GA; m. WA-LI VANN; b. Abt. 1747; d. Abt. 1835, Spring Place, GA.

Notes for CLEMENT VANN: Letters Received 1824-1880, Office of Indian Affairs (RG75); In 1829 Clement Vann told General Coffee that he was 83 years old and had been in the Cherokee nation for fifty years. Therefore it is highly unlikely that he could have been the father of the Cherokee Chief, James Vann b 1766, well before Clement Vann entered the Cherokee nation.

In addition, the Moravian Journals consistently referred to James Vann and his mother and her husband, Clement, but they never referred to Clement as James Vann's father.

(notes somewhere in a box in my closet;) James' sister, Nancy, once mentioned that her father was Joseph Vann.

The date of entry into the Cherokee Nation of Clement, and Nancy's reference to Joseph as her father indicate that Joseph Vann and Clement Vann are two seperate individuals.
