Searching for information on my ggrandparents, William(Billy)Mans and Matilda Vance. They were
from Lincoln County, WV. Matilda was born August 1, 1873
and died May 14, 1934. She had the following children:
James Monroe, Thomas J. ,Melvina(Melva)Gay, Clerca(?),
W. Frank, Leva J., Otto, and Jinks. All info that I have
was taken from a family bible. Would like more info on the
parents of William and Matilda.

I have gone back as far as Samuel Vance and Matilda Halliday being married in Antrim, Ireland on the 9 SEP 1834.
I would like to find out who Samuel's Parents were.
Also any further back on the Vance history would be cool.

My great-great grandmother was named Margret Vance. She was born in WV in the 1850's. She died in 1959 in WV. I am referring to southwestern WV--Mingo County--Breeden/Dingess area. Margret married James Messer and they had several kids. One was named Catherine. She gave birth to Matilda whose father was Boyd Baisden. Matilda married Francis Marion Vance. My mom is their daughter. I hope this is of help. Does anyone know anthing about this lineage?

Thank you!

In Christ Jesus,

Hi Cameron,
I think I may be able to help. I'm now actively researching the Vance families of Ireland, America and elsewhere; I'd be really interested in an exchange of info. Do get in touch. You can email me directly at if you like.

Hi JUdy -
I am W. Frank Mans(Manns) daughter, Romell. I am just getting started trying to find out about my great-grandfather, William Mans. My grandfather was William Henry Mans, married to Matilda Vance, my grandmother. Do you have any more information that you would like to share? I am clueless on how to find info. By the way, where did you find the Bible. THANKS! and whose Judy are you?

Hi Judy -
My father is the W. Frank Mans from this very family. Which would make us cousin! Where do you live? Who is your mother/father? I would love to know where you got the family bible. Did it have dates?
