Frederick's parents were Richard Vant (1791-1861) and Dorcas Darters (1788-1860). They are mentioned in another reply in this Vant message board.

The following wasn't entered by me but appears to be accurate:

Frederick and his family lived in Mt. Pleasant, Volney NY, moved to the Chicago area and later some of them returned to Volney.

Frederick (Sep 1823-Apr 12, 1902) met a rather unfortunate end. His horses were spooked at a railroad crossing by a train and ran in front of it, pulling the cart with Mr. Vant in the path of the train. I have the newspaper story.
