I'm writing to confirm information I have concerning James Word's wife, Elizabeth Vance. Do you know if she was born in Halifax Co., North Carolina 6-22-1778? Was she the youngest daughter of Samuel Vance(born 1691 or 1726?)? I have found some discrepancies here in information I have read from Emogene Tindall on Ancestry.com.

Notes for SARAH WORD:
Posted by: Joseph L. Montgomery,111
Sarah Word of Laurens Country S.C. was my ggggrandmother. She married William Hance (Will). All three of their sons were killed in the War Between the States, at Fredericksburg,Gettysburg, and Chickamauga.
Sarah also "courted" Andrew Johnson who maintained a tailor's shop in Laurens, but according to family lore, refused to allow the marriage of Johnson and Sarah.

Charles married first Mary Walker Morton and they begat
1. Robert Emmett Word
2. Mary Walker Word

Mary Walker Word married Oscar F. Grant sometime before 1870/1 when Katie S. Grant was born.

Oscar F. Grant served in the same unit as Robert Emmett Word in the Civil War (21st Tx Cavalry, Co. K). Oscar was born in KY and died before 1880.

Oscar's parents were John C. Grant and Ann (unknown) Grant (born in KY), living in Goliad Co., TX in 1860 (Boone Co., KY in 1850). (The Word family was also living in Goliad Co., TX in 1860.)

Charles Word married second Elizabeth Amanda Tippen.

Charles Word married third Ann G. According to the census of 1870 & 1880, Ann G. was born in KY, and the same age as the Mrs. Ann Grant in 1860, Goliad Co., TX.

Does anyone know if Mrs. Ann Grant became Mrs. Ann G. Word? (Thus making her both a step-mother and mother-in-law to Mary Walker Word Grant)??
