Re: William Vance (b 1718) + Mary Colville
Capt. or Major William Vance b. 1718 Scotland (some say Fredrick Co., VA) d. 8 April 1788 Cross Creek, Washington Co., PA.There is a monument with his name and others in the Cross Creek Cemetery. The documentation from The Daughters of the American Revolution states he served as a Captain and commanded a company early in the Revolution, although many sources list his rank as Major. I believe his wife was Sarah Colville b. 1720 now Washington Co., PA, but have seen the name Mary used. It is reported he is the son of David Vance, Sr. (likely of Scotland) and Sarah UNKNOWN.A Google search keyed on the information I have given will give a full genealogy.Your welcome.
