to Pleasant NANCE's
Theory #1 - Possible father is John Nance (same as #3?) and his brother being Harden NANCE who married Mary B.
Theory #2 - Possible parents Allen Nance and Betsy Nance (NOTE: Revised 9 May 2009,
not likely to be his father unless Allen and Betsy moved
from TN to VA and back to TN between 1810 - 1820)
(click on theories to see what I think/found
on these possibilities)
Theory #3 - Possible father is John W. Nance son of William Malone Nance and
- UPDATE (5/12/2013): Having had a yDNA test
done, the lines for William Malone Nance appear to be I2a
where my Pleasant line Nance is an R1b. So Pleasant
couldn't be a part of this line.
#4 - ADDED
8/22/2015 Probably my BEST theory yet!! Possible
father is John Nance and Mary/Molly Nance, of
Rockingham County NC. Tying them with some of the
Henry County, VA NANCE.
