      JOHN B. VANCE. Among the many excellent citizens and honest and prosperous residents of Sylvester township, Green county, none is more esteemed by his neighbors, or holds a higher degree of respect in every relation of life, than does our subject, who occupies a fine farm about four miles east of Monroe, Wisconsin.

      The grandfather of our subject, Hugh VANCE, was born in Pennsylvania, June 13, 1784, and died in 1827. In 1809 he married Margaret DEITRICK, who was born Oct. 20, 1790, and they reared a family of nine children: Mary, Malinda, Eliza, Samuel, Ezekiel, Keziah, Robert, George and Hugh, all of whom are deceased.

      Samuel VANCE, the father of our subject, was a native of Fayette county, Penn. In 1841 he married Lavina JOHNS, who was born Nov. 12, 1814, and died April 4, 1883. They came to Green county, Wis., about 1845, settling in Sylvester township. Mr. and Mrs. VANCE reared seven children: James P., deceased; George D., who resides in Kansas; John B., our subject; Hugh H., who resides in California; Ezekiel T., a retired farmer, of Monroe; Daniel W., a retired farmer, of Monroe; and Rebecca R., the wife of William RODERICK, a farmer of Jefferson. Samuel VANCE died Oct. 11, 1898. He was a well known citizen, and one of the first settlers in the township, where throughout life he followed agriculture. He was a consistent member of the Democratic party, and religiously one of the supporters of the First Baptist Church of Juda, Wisconsin.

      John B. VANCE, the subject proper of this sketch, was born Nov. 26, 1846, and grew to manhood on the farm, receiving his education in the district schools. As an agriculturist he has worked industriously all his life, and although he began as a poor boy his success has been as gratifying as that of many others who also began on a farm and later entered other professions. Mr. VANCE is now the owner of one of the fine farms of Green county, comprising 120 acres of well-improved land, with excellent buildings and fences, and a comfortable and substantial dwelling. All the buildings are new, both house and barn having been destroyed by fire and rebuilt since 1894.

      The marriage of our subject was celebrated on Nov. 26, 1871, to Mary E. West, who was born April 24, 1852, the daughter of George W. WEST, a retired farmer of Brodhead, Wis., and eleven children have been born of this union; Allie R., born in 1873, is now Mrs. W. J. HARPER; Jessie M., born in 1874, is the wife of Patrick H. WARD; Nettie L., born in 1875, is the wife of James L. STEVENSON; George N. was born in 1876; Clara Zoe, in 1880; Samuel J., in 1882; Susan Zell, in 1884; Kate W., in 1886; John G., in 1891; James B., in 1893 (died in 1894); and Mary G., in 1897. Both father and mother are still spared to this happy family.

      In politics Mr. VANCE has inherited his Democratic belief, all his family having been adherents of that party in the past. Although he does not belong to any particular religious denomination, our subject has always given his influence in the interests of morality, and lives up to the doctrine that honesty and fair dealing are necessary requisites in a man, whether he is bound by church discipline or not. He has reared a large family and has been blessed with prosperity, and he possesses the esteem not only of his relatives, but of the whole neighborhood in which he has founded his home.
