About A Family Affair
The below is (in)complete research done by Debra Bowman (initiator of this site). Steven Brower took over website in 2008 (passed to by Deb Bowman). Below is unfinished research by Deb.

From Steve: The Dutch settled New York in 1624 when they established a colony at Albany, NY then called Fort Orange.  In 1626 other settlers from Holland came to New York City, then Amsterdam.  New York named Albany capital in 1788.

James Hammond complained of 6-1-1775 for selling liquor in small quantities (Menallen Mtg.) 7- 8-
 1775, Report - that he claims to have declined selling liquor disreputably and has parted with  his still: Case continued. Disowned 3-9-1776.

According to BLACKBURN AND ALLIED DESCENDANTS by Evelyn Gibson, page 33: "Mary and James farmed  in Tyrone Twp. and ran a tippling house where liquor was sold by the drink." It is interesting  that he refused to publicly condem himself, apparently considering the parting with his still  as adequate amends and, therefore, was disowned.

 Lancaster study: St. James Episcopal + Sadsbury Monthly Meeting (Quakers) Menallen York Co. PA study: Menallen Monthly Meeting was formed, in 1780. "The first location of Menallen Meeting was in what is now Butler Township, then a part of  Menallen Township. It was located three miles southeast of the present site in a woodland with  Opossum Creek westward.

"The early meetings were usually held in the homes of the members, but by 1758 a building had  been erected as proved by Nicholas Scull's map of the state of that year. It was in the  northwest section of the graveyard, now known as Friends' Grove Graveyard." This building was  replaced by a second nearly 80 years later.
 Menallen Meeting is at 1107 Carlisle Rd (rt 34) in Biglerville, 10 miles north of Gettysburg.  To find it, drive through Biglerville, 2.5 miles past the Biglerville traffic light. The  meeting house is on the right. Menallen is part of Warrington Quarter, which was transferred  from Philadelphia to Baltimore Yearly Meeting because it was easier to go down the Susquehanna  to the Chesapeake than across country to Philadelphia.
 The meeting was established in 1780 and celebrated its 225th anniversary in 2005.

Sadsbury Meeting house is on Simmontown Road between Route 41 and Route 30, near Gap, in  Lancaster County. As Friends spread west into what was then sparsely inhabited woods, they  needed places to worship, and in 1724 Samuel Miller and Andrew Moore and their families  requested permission to build a meeting house. "Liberty" was granted, and a log meeting house  was built in 1725, called Sadsbury. On 24 Seventh Month 1737 Sadsbury and Leacock meetings  requested permission from their parent meeting, New Garden, to become a monthly meeting so that  they would not have to travel all the way to New Garden each month for business meetings. New  Garden Monthly and Concord Quarterly Meetings agreed, and the two particular meetings were  joined as Sadsbury Monthly Meeting. It met for business on the first Second Day [Monday] each  month, beginning in Twelfth Month 1737. 
 Monthly Meetings were held alternately at Sadsbury and Leacock until 1751 when the latter  meeting and meeting house was physically moved to Lampeter.
 The present square stone meeting house was built in 1747. Originally it had wooden galleries or  balconies forming a second floor. They were burned during the Revolutionary War. When the  meeting 
 house was restored a ceiling was put in instead of rebuilding the balconies. (The ceiling is  visible in the photograph below to the right.) Sadsbury was part of Chester Quarter until 1756,  then of Western Quarter until 1800, and now of Caln Quarter. The meeting house was not used by  Friends between 1903 and 1974, because they had built a new meeting house in Christiana and  rented 
 this old one to Mennonites. But the meeting did not prosper and eventually Friends moved back  to 
 their old building, and sold the Christiana building to the Maple Grove Mennonites. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/graphics-pax/mtghse.html#Lancaster ---------------------------------------------

 The Great Wagon Road to Philadelphia, also shown on the 1755 Frye and Jefferson Map, went from  Winchester through Conocacheague and Southern Pennsylvania to Philadelphia.

1794 Dennis Griffith Map of Maryland, shows the route of the road from Conestoga to Opequon.  The 
 road began at Conestoga, PA, near Lancaster. It passed through York, PA and Taneytown,  Woodsborough, Frederick Town, Middle town, Fox's Gap, and Sharpesburg in Maryland. It crossed  the 
 Potamac at Shepherdstown and went on to Opequon located about five miles Southwest of Winchester, Virginia. This route also was known as the German Monocacy Road.   Tracey 
 and Dern, page 51 of Pioneers of Old Monocacy are incorrect when they indicate the Road to  Opequon 
 went through Turner's Gap. The road actually went through Fox's Gap. The old Sharpsburg Road  was 
 part of the road from Conestoga to Opequon. 
 The road from Conestoga to opequon was the same road as the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road. The  Frye and Jerrerson Map identifies the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road in Virginia. The road  crossed 
 the Potomac at Shepherdstown.

Vance/Colville
 Family tradition says that John Vance and his wife of Coagh, Ireland, had four sons and  daughters 
 to come to America and to settle first in Chester County, PA.  Accompanying them were the  Hogues  
 (Hoge, Hogg), Colvilles and Glasses.  As has been said of other Scotch/Irish, they settled on  land 
 that was unoccupied but not legally theirs.  The Quaker owners returned and had to sue to get  their land back, but won the suit, forcing the Vances and others to move on.  They decided to  accept Jost Hite’s invitation to the Shenandoah Valley and moved there in 1731/32. James and David Vance settled near Opequon Creek and helped William Hoge form the Opequon  Congregation in 1738, the first one in the Valley.  Andrew and James moved farther south about  9-
 10 miles and settled near the Zane Iron Works. Andrew married Jane Hoge and they had two sons,  Samuel and John.[57]

The 1765 Chester Archives only list 1 Vance;

I have submitted many transcribed tax records to both the Chester Co rootsweb site, and the  pagenweb..you might want to look through those for Vances...however, the name isn't a common  one 
 in Chester Co..only 3 mentioned in the index of THE HISTORY OF CHESTER COUNTY...

We appreciate your input Sandra, thank you. Fortunately, we have almost all of these references  and more. It is surprising how many Vances there were in Chester County starting with John  Vance 
 in 1722. There are 38 entries for Vances on the Chester County tax rolls from 1722 to 1785.  Three 
 Vances (William, Jacob, and Thomas) from Chester County served in the Pennsylvania Militia, one  in 
 the Continental Line (cf the Pennsylvania Archives). Most of the Vances settled in E & W  Nantmeal 
 Twps and E. Brandywine. Descendants of Jacob and Magdalene Vance still reside in Brandywine.  Some 
 ancestors moved to the southwestern part of PA in the late 1700s and early 1800s. I hope by way  of 
 this post on the Chester County PA forum to connect with family members who may be able to fill  the many gaps in the history of the Vances in PA, especially Chester County.

There is a Jacob Vance listed twice as a private in the PA Militia in 1780 and we have a copy  of 
 his pay/fine card (all found in the PA Archives). We would find it remarkable/surprising if he  became a captain. (The Capt. Jacob Vance we have found was b. 1761, but this is not certain.)  He 
 is not listed in the PA Archives as having participated in the War of 1812, so it is unlikely  he 
 served in that war as a captain. We thought he might be the Jacob Vance who appears on the tax  supply list for E. Nantmeal in 1774, but we believe this may be a different Jacob Vance who  also 
 appears on the 1780 rolls for E. Nantmeal as a "freeman." Our Jacob Vance is listed only in the  1810 Census for Brandywine, we do not see him in the 1800 Census, nor do we see any other  Vances 
 in the 1800 Census for Chester County (except Jacob Hinnace in E. Nantmeal). This has made it  difficult to get a fix on his age. The 1810 Census shows him as 26-44, the same age group as  his 
 brother Thomas.

I went looking for any Vances I could find, in Chester, and will include them, below,(plus  those 
 from Lanc. Co) in case there are any clues; Aside from those wills you mention having, these  are

-------------------------------
 We are researching the Vances of Chester County PA, primarily in E. Brandywine and E. Nantmeal  Townships for the periods 1750 - 1850. The family of Jacob (d. 1815) and Magdalene (d. 1864)  Vance 
 of E. Brandywine is of special interest. They had six children: Washington Vance (b. 1810 d.  1884 
 m. Rachel); William Vance (b. 1812 d. 1890 a single man); Thomas (b. 1814 d. 1891 m. Sarah);  Hannah (b. before 1810); Ann (b. before 1810); and Rachel (b. 1811-12). We believe that the  Thomas 
 listed in the 1810 Census for W. Nantmeal Twp Chester Co was Jacob's brother, as Jacob was the  administrator of Thomas' (d. 1810) estate. We would like to know if Jacob and Thomas had any  other 
 siblings and who their parents were. We have information on the descendants of the male  children 
 of Jacob and Magdalene Vance.

 requsts to have their meeting settled," and later 
 in the year the meeting was regularly established.^ 
 The Meeting land, consisting of 20 acres and 153 
 perches, was not granted until May 26, 1788.- It 
 is not known when the first edifice was built, but 
 Nicholas Scull's map of the State shows that one 
 had been erected as early as 1758.^ 
 -------------
 In its early years Menallen Meeting was dis- 
 tinctively an Irish meeting, the majority of its 
 members being from Ireland. Among them were 
 John Blackburn,* Judge of the York County Court 
 in 1764, County Treasurer in 1759 and 1766,^ and

the tract tc the Dunkers or German Baptists, at the rate of one dollar  annually for a term of fifty years. Upon this plot the Dunkers erected a  wooden meeting house and laid out a burial ground. The Friends con-  tinued to make their interments in the original graveyard until 1853, when  a piece of land adjoining the new site was purchased and another graveyard  opened {Land Title Papers, in possession of Menallen Meeting).

------------------------------
 I have James Vance married to an Abigail Milson (acc. to his 1812 pension file which lists him  in 
 Guernsey County and being stationed at Ft. Meigs with his brother William). Maybe Anthony was  his 
 middle name? (named after "Mad" Anthony Wayne poss.?) I believe that this would be the James  Vance 
 whose land is being divided among his heirs about 1840 acc. to Guernsey Co. land records.  Thomas 
 buys the land from his various siblings and lives there about 40 years until he moves to Vinton  County, OH where I assume he dies.
 Btw, it lists James and Abigail being married in Brownsville, Washington County, PA October 1,  1804 the same year James' dad, William dies in Fayette County, PA. Does this mean then that  there 
 IS a connection to the Washington County, PA Vances who I believe migrate to another part of  Guernsey County? The plot thickens. . .

I am looking for information on the Samuel and Elinor (Vance) Gilliland family. They lived in  Menallen Township, Adams County, PA. He was a lieutenant in the War of Independence. She was  the 
 youngest child of Ezekiel and Elinor (Curry) Vance of York County, PA. They are both buried in  the 
 Great Conewago Cemetery in Hunterstown, PA. Thank you for the help to those who reply. Has anybody researched the Jacob Baylor Family??? Jacob Baylor was born 13 January 1755 in York  County, Pennsylvania. Married Maria Crunkle. Died 23 January 1815 in Fairfield; Guernsey  County, 
 Ohio. Their son, Alexander A. Baylor born 1791 was also born in Dordorus; York County.

I think Maria Crunkle is Maria Catherina Runkle, the daughter of Jacob and Anna Maria Runkle.  And 
 Jacob was born 5March1755. as Jacob Behler. He had known siblings Johannes b. 2Dec 1760,  Catherina 
 b. Sept 8, 1763, Andreas b. 1767 and Michael b. 24 Nov, 1782. Jacob and Catherine had John Jacob 1780, Elizabeth 1784, Anna Maria 1787, Christina 1789 and  Samuel in 1791. Jacob and Samuel appear to be in Fairfield Co. Ohio in 1820. The father of Jacob b.1755 is Michel Bohler who came to America 2Oct1741 on the ship St. Andrew  and married Catherine Jones(Jonas) dau of Johan Johan Jones
 Dordorus is Codorus

Runkle is an early name in York Co

In York co. records Baylor is Behler, Bealer, Beeler, Boehler ,Begler, Bohler, Beller. etc ---------------------------
 In the 1762 tax records for York County Ezekiel and John vance were taxed and Menallen Twp and  Nicholas Vance was taxed in Reading Township. These townships are now in Adams Co. in 1762  William 
 Vance was taxes in Shrewsbury Twp which is still in York Co. -------------------------
