About Samuel Vance, Sr.

This is the correct Samuel Vance Sr.--his Find-A-Grave memorial gives correct links to our Samuel Vance Jr. and his wife, who is our Sarah Vance (Colville).

But if this is OUR Samuel Vance Sr., then his old uncorrected birth location is worthless. He is the issue of the first Irishman of this line who died in America. It is unlikely that his father and mother went back to their old ancestral stomping grounds in Scotland to have a child.

Timothy G. Vance provides UNDOCUMENTED information at

http://timothyv.tripod.com/index-29.html

For what it is worth, he agrees with our date of birth, but says that Samuel was born in Coven, Ireland, which is a LOT better than the nonsense we used to be spouting about Wigtownshire, Scotland. And a location in Northern Ireland rather than the republic of Ireland is just fine by me. I have changed our birth location to what he suggests. However I am trusting our DOCUMENTED death information, rather than his, in matters related to Samuel Sr.'s death.
