About William Perkins Vance

Mormon Pioneer

"...Vance, William Perkins – (6th Ten) Born Oct. 20, 1822, in Jackson Co., Tenn., to John and Sarah Perkins Vance. He was baptized into the Church in 1842 and he traveled to Nauvoo where he lived a time with the Prophet Joseph Smith. He later wrote of attending school in Ramus, five or six miles from Carthage, Ill., where he learned stenography from a Joseph Johnson. He wrote of the experience: "Eight young fellows were put into a class, and now I am going to tell you the truth whether you believe it or not – that everyone gave it up but myself." After the Saints arrived in Salt Lake Valley, he was chosen to join Parley P. Pratt's expedition to southern Utah and became one of the first settlers in Iron County. In 1884 he moved to St. George, Washington Co., where he lived until 1892. He then moved to Lund, Nev., where he died Dec. 5, 1914, at the age of 92..."
