I started Abner Vance's Homepage in 1995 shortly after the birth of my first Grandson in 1994, it was began as a simple site to keep track of immediate family and direct decendents. However it quickly became apparent to me that it was going to be much more than I had anticipated, but I never imagined it would become what it is today.. Thank you my Friends and Family for all of your contributions of information and for the encouraging words over the years.

There are bigger genealogy websites on the internet, but they are built and maintained by a group of people, or a company,   Abner Vance's Homepage   Was built, and is maintained by one person, me. This makes it the biggest personal genealogy website on the internet, and with the number of hits it receives monthly also one of the most popular!

Thanks to everyone that has sent information, pictures, and advice, because of you it is a huge success!

WELCOME!! This homepage is dedicated to my g,g,g,g,grandfather Abner Vance. On this page you will find my family line from my grandchildren to Abner Vance himself. Hopefully I will be able to get more family lines to add to this page, with names and e-mail address' of relatives of Abner Vance, in the hope of bringing the family a little closer together. Families have a way of drifting apart, and it shouldn't be that way. Families should stick together, even large families like the Vance family. With the modern technology that we have today there is no reason for families not to know each other, even if by e-mail, or snail mail only. I have already found several cousins that I never knew existed by way of e-mail. Now I keep in close contact with them almost daily. I have a brother that I see about every 5 or 6 years because he lives so far away, but I talk to him several times a week on-line. So if you are a Vance, or you are related to a Vance, why not contact me, and let's find out if we are related. It really won't take a lot of energy to do that. So come on, drop me a line. Here is my e-mail address:

Abner Vance and Susannah Howard

Abner Vance was born abt.1755 No birth record has been found for him,so there is no documented date for his birth. This also means that there is no documented name of his Father or Mother. There has been names over the years of people that were suppose to be his Father, but alas, no proof as of YET!! Some places that Abner was during his life are: These were documented!! Pittsylvania Co. Va., Russell Co. Va. and of course Washington Co. Va. Washington Co. Va. is where Abner Vance died. There are a lot of stories about his death, and the events leading up to it. However I was not there, so I don't know what is true and what isn't. In the pages ahead I will try to include some of those stories that have been told over the years about Abner Vance, and his death. Including what my own Father told me about my G,G,G,G,Grandfather Abner Vance. Not to say that what my Father told me is the truth, but he believed it, because it was told to him by his Father, and told to his Father by his Father, and so on. So you pick your own story that you think is true. I will also try to add some information about Susannah Howard and her family, for she was my G,G,G,G,Grandmother, and that makes her and her family important to me. The Howard family is as much a part of my roots as the Vance family, along with several other surnames, which I hope to include in these pages.
