Abram Vance

David Vance Sr. willed Abram to his son, David Jr. in 1813.  Although his history is uncertain, Abram likely remained with David Jr. on the Reems Creek plantation before moving to the drovers stand in the 1830s.  Since there are no records of Abram’s sale or death before 1844, he is likely the Abe listed in the 1844 estate sale.  Abe was purchased by Montraville Weaver, who lived in the Reems Creek Valley.  It is also likely that Abram is the Abraham Vance listed as living with Hudson and Mira Vance in the 1870 census.
