A Wilson Family Tree
Notes for Berenice W. Vance
Middle initial "W" comes from the 1920 and 1930 censuses, in which she was living in New York City and working as a bank clerk (can't be certain it's the same Berenice Vance, but the information fits). Since Benjamin H. Wilson's daughter, Berenice Wilson, died earlier in the year that this Berenice was born, it seems very likely that she was named after her deceased cousin -- Berenice Wilson Vance. In fact, on Ancestry.com at “U.S. School Yearbooks 1900-1999” there is a yearbook for the University of Missouri at Columbia for 1905–6 with a listing for Berenice Wilson Vance (Student Assistant in Women’s Gymnasium).
