The estate of Mary BARNES to be divided between "the said Thomas BARNS, Andrew M[H?]AMILTON, Joseph BRADDY, Prudence BARNES, Edward VANN who married Mary the daughter of Mary BARNES, Alexander CARTER who married Ann another daughter, Abraham ODAM who married Sibil another daughter & John THOMPSOM[N?] who intermarried with Sarah another daughter of said Mary BARNS.

Listed in an index of wills with William VANN and Mary Vann, executors. This will has never been found, only the listing in an index at the Archives. The will may have been destroyed when the early records of Herford County were burned.

--------------------

Edward VANN was listed in the 1759 estate division of Richard BARNES and Mary BARNS (Note: Mona TAYLOR of Harker Heights, TX, states that this Mary was the daughter of Moses ODUM.) Richard and Mary BARNS evidently had several children among whom his estate was divided. One of these children was a Mary BARNES, who evidently married and had several children. She was deceased at the time of the estate division, so her portion was divided among her children. One of her daughters, Mary, had married an Edward VANN by 1759 and another daughter, Sibil, had married Abraham ODUM. (Probate Records in Chowan County, North Carolina Bound Miscellaneous Papers 1694-1799.)

BARNES, Richard and Mary x:80; Jan 1759 Order to divide the estate of Richard BARNES and Mary BARNES: Estate of Richard BARNES to be divided between "Thomas BARNES and Andrew HAMILTON who married Rachael the sister of the said Thomas BARNS, Joseph BRADDY who married Lydia another sister...& Prudence BARNES an unmarried sister of the said Thomas BARNES in equal shares." The estate of Mary BARNES to be divided between "the said Thomas BARNS, Andrew MAMILTON, Joseph BRADDY, Prudence BARNES, Edward VANN who married Mary the daughter of Mary BARNES, Alexander CARTER who married Ann another daughter, Abraham ODAM who married Sibil another daughter & John THOMPSOM who intermarried with Sarah another daughter of said Mary BARNS."

Edward Vann's d. 1762 in Herford Co. NC. This will is listed in an index of wills, with William VANN and Mary Vann, executors. This will has never been found, only the listing in an index at the Archives. Quite possibly, the will was destroyed when the early records of Herford Couty were burned.

At this point it is not sure if this Edward Vann in the son of John Vann. Other Vann family lines have suggested that this Edward Vann was the son of Edward Vann (EV) who died in Chowan Co., in 1750. The brother of John Vann (IV).

Children of Edward Vann and Mary Barns are: + 40 i. John "Joseph"5 Vann, born Abt 1735; died Abt 1800. + 41 ii. Edward Vann, Sr., born Abt 1741. + 42 iii. James Vann, born Abt 1744 in Chowan County, NC. + 43 iv. Clement Vann, born Abt 1747 in Spring Place, GA; died Abt 1830 in Spring Place, Ga..

  • **** Note from Post titled "Edward Vann" on the Vann Family Forum by Jerry Clark: John "Joseph" Vann is really John Vann. Clark also includes a sister Jenny Vann bc 1742 dc 1820. After the death of his 1st wife Mary Barnes, Edward moved to the Ninety-Six District, SC and married Charity ? and had four children .... Clement (shown above as a child of Mary Barnes), Thomas (Show below as a brother of John instead of as a son) , Edith (married Arthur Archibald Coody) and Avery Vann (bc 1755 dc 1810).
