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.

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]

VANCE, JACOB. Brandywine. March 8, 1815.Magdalen Vance, administrator.


VANCE, JOHN. New London
July 3, 1775. October 3, 1785.Provides of wife Rebecca Vance, otherwise McNutt. To daughters 
Ann, 
Jane and Rebecca 5 shillings each. To son Robert's 2 sons John and Arthur Vance wearing apparel 
and to his daughter, Ann, £5, etc. To son John's 2 sons Arthur and John 5 shillings each. To 
son 
George all cash, bonds, etc., also executor. Wit: George Campbell, Thomas Bines.

I found mentions of these, in Chester wills of others...
Caleb Vance - 1770 - Londongrove

Jacob and Thomas Vance, 1788 East Nantmeal

The 1765 Chester Archives only list 1 Vance;
Joseph, an inmate in West Nottingham (a married man who lived in the twp but owned no land)

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 
all those found on the CD of PA wills, for Chester

-------------------------------
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
