I have a copy of the inscriptions, if anyone is interested. Would it be
worthwhile to post these to the list??

Eileen, do you know where to find a complete listing of the people buried in
the Vansant burial ground in Warminster?

Many thanks, Dova Wilson

Laurie, I have the following Vansant connection, but I'm not sure if it will
be of any help.

Harman Vansant who was born about 1704 in Bensalem and died in 1735 married
Alice Craven about 1725. Alice was the sister to Mary Craven who married
Anthony Scout who are my hubby's direct ancestors.

I have not spent a great deal of time researching Vansants, but would be
willing to share what I have and spend some time trying to organize all the
family branches. Anthony's son, James (Jacobus or Cobe) Scout is buried in
the Vansant burial ground in Warminster.

P.S. There is another researcher, Lea Buzby, on this list who also has
Vansant/Craven/Yerkes connections, and she might have some info as well.
