Thanks so much for the information. I have tried to find that book that you mention, I even requested it on amazon.com, but to no avail.
I am certain for a fact that my line is James and Ruth, as my Grandfather is certain of that as well. They are supposed to be buried in the New Market Baptist Cemetery, but their tombstones are not visible anymore, even if there were any?
I talked with a lady in Inverness, Scotland, and she thought that I was mistaken that my family would have been from Inverness....she seemed to think that we should be from Ireland and not Scotland.
James would have been my Great Great Great Grandfather. His son was Jacob Vance, his son was Charles Everett, his son was Elwood, which is my Grandfather.
I want to put some kind of family tree together for my Father and Grandfather, but now I am worried that some of my research is faulty.
I appreciate your help, and this information is very interesting.
