Nance Inquiry

I came across your F.A.G. profile a few days ago, and although reticent about posting, I thought- I'll give it a shot. I have been conducting a bit of a genealogical trail for my family, within the last few months. There was a name that popped up, surname- Nance, which leads me here.

I am descended from Mary A. Cavender Duncan's daughter, Julia Duncan (married name- Foust). I know that Mary's mother was Sarah Elizabeth Nance.

I try to be as thorough as possible, to get names correctly associated with the right people, as it should be... I know that Mary A. Cavender's mother was a Nance, but mind you, I'm lost in terms of and if Rosana Nance is the mother. Do you know the names or lineal descent of Reuben, Nance, Jr. and Rosana's children?

I have found a reference in lieu of Reuben's F.A.G. that purportedly his wife was a Francis Nance. I'm not saying this is not possible, but perhaps it was a second marriage or perhaps an error?

Reuben Nance, Jr. (F.A.G.)-

If you could assist me with the proper names et al, I can properly get the right association to who is who in the Nance line.

Many Regards-

RE: Nance
Yes, I'd like that. I'll email you then sometime soon. Is the email address you list here on Find A Grave still good?

Take care,

John and Mary
Sorry to bother you again, Joyce. My email to you was just sent back to me as "undeliverable" so I guess I will write what I know here.

John and Mary's son, Reuben, is my 6th GG grandfather; Rueben and his wife, Roseanna, had a daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, who married my 5th gg Grandfather Benjamin Cavender.

I think I have John Nance's parents as William Nance (b. 1714 in VA) who married Ann Eppes; and William's parents are listed as William and Margret....but I really don't know if that is correct due to several errors that I have since discovered in this genealogy printout!!!

Do you have any information that you can share with me? I would love to hear from you!

My email is:

John and Mary Nance
HI Joyce,

I found that John and Mary Nance are my 7th gg grandparents!! I saw your memorials to them and just HAD to write!! I sent to you an email with my family tree info so I am not taking up too much space here. Do you have any further information on the Nance family ancestry??

Thanks So Much!!

RE: Nance
Sorry it took so long to get back to you Joyce. The answer to your question is yes I am kin to some of the Nances. My Grandaunt Mary Brabson Branner's daughter Anna Belle married Alfred Nance of New Market, TN. They lived in Knoxville. Anna Belle is still living.
