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."
