Classification: Query
Is there any chance that you could look in the book and see if there is any references to a John P Vance born abt 1717 and died in Yellville, Ark between 1780 and 1782. he married a Martha Worth. If you can't help me, maybe you could give me some advice as to how to get more information on him.

this is pretty much all I have on John P Vance:

WHERE JOHN P. VANCE IS BURIED
By S. C. Turnbo

We have often mentioned the name of John P. Vance who was one of the pioneer merchants of Taney County, Mo. He having sold goods at Forsyth many years. The writer never knew where he died until the 5th of August 1907 when he was talking with Ben Fee a prominent lawyer of Yellville Ark. who informed him that Mr. Vance taken sick at Yellville in the fall of 1862 and after he had suffered several weeks with a lingering disease he died. Mr. Fee said that the sick man called for the meat of rabbits throughout his sickness. Mr. Fee said that Vances dead body was the first one he ever saw placed in a coffin with a glass in the lid. Mr. Vances body received interment in the graveyard one half mile west of town.

any assistance would be appreciated. Carolyn at Mooloolaba@aol.com
