John Vancil, born in Illinois
I am trying to trace back my line of Vancill's since not much is known about my line.I have a John Vancil born in Ill around 1830, no definite birthdate known. He had a son William M. "Billy" Vancil born 3-28-1853 in Benton City, MO. William was married to Lura Price Ballard. Both were buried in Hugo, OK. They had at least two children. Frank Melton Vancill and Fannie Lou Vancill, both born in OK. One of Frank's kids was my grandfather Earl Vancill of Clarksville, TX. Earl was born in Sawyer, OK. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
