As to where I fit in Cornelius Vannoy is the son of Francis Vannoy/Vanoy of NY/NJ.
Francis was born 1688 and is one of 6 children born to John VanOy and Rachel Cornwall. I descend from Francis's Brother Abram/Araham born 1690 Died 1779 in DE. and married Susannah Clayton. Eventually the family name went through some changes till this portion of the family settle in NC and the spelling went to Vanhoy. The family name has changed from state to state in some cases. I have found where the parents name was Vanhoy and later the children's surname was Vannoy. I am glad I was able to help out.
