I am looking for info on the Vann family that lived in Dodge in the mid to late 1800 to present. James G & Hannah Evans Vann had 7 boys-Sanders F, John F, James R, Jesse Evans, William J, Edward Turner, Benjamin Wesley.
My Great Grandfather was Edward Turner Vann. He married Emma Goodman on March 18, 1896 in Dodge Texas and they had 10 children-Elizabeth Victoria(Lizzie), Hannah Ida, Harvey, Annie Belle, Ruby Johnnie, Elzora(Ellie), Betty, Henry, Gracey, and Bennie.
My Grandmother was Elizabeth Victoria and she married John Thomas Martin Dec 10, 1914 in San Jacinto County.
I Believe that James G. Vann had two brothers that came from Georgia with him. This I cannot document yet. I think the brothers are James T. Vann and John F. Vann which was Sheriff of Walker County around 1850.

Thanks for any help I can get. Vicki LeMere
