William Vance, New Jersey Revolutionary War Soldier Buried in Church Street Cemetery, Mobile, Alabama.

William Vance is one of a literal handful of Revolutionary War Veterans buried in Mobile County. He served as a Private in the 1st Regiment of New Jersey Troops between 1775 and 1783. He died in Mobile, Alabama on April 23rd, 1843 and is buried in Church Street Cemetery, in downtown Mobile. His grave was marked by The Daughters of The American Revolution and his grave is in good shape compared to other graves in Church Street Cemetery. There is usually a miniature American Flag on his grave BUT I always take one with me to place on his grave, just in case it's not there, so I can honor this "forgotten" American Patriot, who fought for the Liberties so many people today take for granted. // The book listed on the left is about the Revolutionary War in New Jersey and can give you a pretty good idea of what William Vance and his New Jersey fellow soldiers had to deal with during the Revolutionary War.
