I also have an ancestor named John Lorance. He was born in Lincoln Co. NC in 1771. He moved to what later became Bollinger Co. Missouri in 1795. He married Hannah Baker, also from NC in 1824. He also married Mary Baker. It is well known that the Bakers were considered a "Black Dutch" family. Because of this, we believe that Mary Miller, these Bakers' mother, also born in NC, was Cherokee. (Most of our other family lines are also mixed-blood Cherokee.) Aside from this information, our John Lorance is a mystery. We do not know who his parents were. If you have any information or insight, please let me know.
