Seeking info on Richard T. Hance, Senior born in Maryland and moved to Bourbon County, Ky about 1787-1790.
From an article written about 1905, Richard's father (John Hance, Junior) and grandfather (John Hance, Senior..) were early settlers on the eastern shore of Maryland...

"Richard Hance, took part in the Revolutionary War and removed from Maryland to Kentucky, locating first in Scott County. He was one of the workmen employed in the building of the State House, at Lexington."

His wife and children info is below:

Richard T. Hance, Senior and Elizabeth Neal were married on 9 February 1793 in Ky. Elizabeth was the daughter of Jacob Neal and Nancy Yemmon of South Carolina (originally)...The Neal family lived in Bourbon County, Ky for a period...then some moved to Indiana....

Their children were:
A.John HANCE born 19 Jan 1795 in “Lexington, Bourbon County, Kentucky”. He died 22 April 1863 and is buried in Lockport, Kentucky. [John married Keturrah Clements....David's sister on 13 October 1814.]

She died on 18 May 1878 and was buried in the Dawley Cemetery on Highway 562 in Gallatin County, Kentucky.[She married David Clements October 13, 1814 in Montgomery, Kentucky, son of Roger Clements and Hannah Hathaway. - this was a 'double wedding' with her older brother John marrying Keturrah Clements....David's sister.]

E. Richard T. HANCE, JUNIOR born ABT 6 August 1810 (or 1811). He married the first time on 4 September 1833 to Elizabeth Leamall in Kentucky and was married the second time to a widow named Mary Golliff in Spencerville, Ohio on 8 March 1859 in Van Wert Co., Ohio. He died 11 July 1883 (acc to records) in Spencerville, Ohio from ‘catarrh’. [His tombstone is hard to read - see attached image from the Hance Cemetery in Van Wert County, Oh near Spencerville, Oh.]
F. Sally HANCE born ABT 1805, married 13 January 1834 to Walter Prother (born March 29, 1799) [one book lists the name as Prather].
G. William HANCE born ABT 1807.
H. Caroline Hance. She married Thomas B. Lambert August 14, 1836 in Boone Co., Ky..

[Marriage Notes for Caroline Hance and Thomas Lambert:
LAMBERT, Thomas B. & Caroline HANCE, 14 Aug. 1836, m by David Lillard, b Richard Hance, c by father Richard Hance Sr., w by Richard Hance Jr., B-11, Boone Co., KY

Marriages of Campbell, Boone and Kenton Counties, Kentucky, 1795-1850]

From property records and court documents, it appears Elizabeth Neal Hance died sometime about 1836... Richard bought some land with his son, Richard T. Hance, Junior in Gallatin County, Ky about 1839... but died shortly after 'purchasing the land'.... trying to pin down his actual burial location...

Richard T. Hance Senior is NOT buried in the Hance Cemetery on the border of Gallatin and Boone counties... but may be buried on property close to this 'newer cemetery'...

Also, seeking any documented info on actual birth date/location of Richard T. Hance, Senior...documents do indicate 'Maryland'... but would be nice to know 'where in Maryland'...

Thanks in advance,

Dennis Hance
