About Sarah Lavinia Vance

Daughter of Ute Perkins Sr. and Sarah (Sally) Gant

Wife of John Vance

-------------------- Baptised origianlly in Mississippi River in 1840 but husband was the proxy then so it was redone.

!birthdate needs checking other records list 1795, 1796, 1798, 1799, 1801, and later. 1795 and 1799 seem to fit in best with the other records. She was listed as 16-under 26 in the 1820 Jackson Co. Census with her husband John Alma VANCE. Also listed 30-40 in 1830 census Morgan county Illinois that would have her born between 1795-1800

1798 Date comes from family records of Grace R. Squires of Mesa Arizona in the 1960s. Fam. Group Record of Milo C. Vance ggson of Sarah Lavinia Gant Perkins through James Vance her son.

!1795 date came from Eugene Perkins contacts later dates of 1805 etc doesn't fit with census or the fact that she married in 1817 sealed to parents on SG film #170583 special Collections no birthdate listed birthplace listed as SC listed in Nauvoo Baptisms for the dead Book A P. 169 Baptism done with Husband as proxy 1840 These baptisms were done in the river at Nauvoo. rebaptised 28 Oct 1879 TIB lists b. 11 jan 1801 white Co, Tenn but not filled out until 1929 also lists md 10 feb 1817. I don't think this birthday is correct as if she were a twin or triplet with William he would have been able to remember her birthday on the temple sealing records as he could his twin Anna. SG Temple book D p. 444. 11 Jan is sometimes listed as birthday but this may be due to confusion over her being Williams Twin. I do not think she was his twin.

!When the graveyard rubbings were done for me atr Vance Family Cemetery in Industry, there wasn't one for her among the readable ones.

in the Nauvoo Temple Sealing extraction I think she is listed as Sarah Parkins birthdate 18 JUN 1813 South Carolina. Maybe the 18 Jun means something but the year is definitely wrong -------------------- Baptised origianlly in Mississippi River in 1840 but husband was the proxy then so it was redone. !birthdate needs checking other records list 1795, 1796, 1798, 1799, 1801, and later. 1795 and 1799 seem to fit in best with the other records.
