Powder Horn In 1776 Joseph Vance had military service in the Revolutionary War. Joseph's name and date, 1776, as well as the name of his son, James, War of 1812, and grandson, Zachary Taylor Vance, Civil War, were painted on a powder horn said to have been carried by Joseph Vance during the Revolution. The following article and picture on the following page were from the Eddyville TRIBUNE, Friday, November 9, 1894. Mrs. Homer Rhodes of Little Rock, Arkansas arrived here Wednesday and will make a two week visit with Mrs. Samuel Vance and family. Mrs. Rhodes brought from her Arkansas home a powder horn of the old style that was carried by Joseph Vance through the Revolutionary War of 1776, and then through the War of 1812 by James Vance, son of Joseph. Upon it is painted the Battle of Lexington and the Bunker Hill monument. It is a relic highly prized and is now the property of James Vance.

Zachary Vance's occupation was a Peace Officer.

Zachary Taylor Vance was born near Eddyville, Mahaska county, Iowa on September 5, 1846, and lived in or near that place until he enlisted in the 9th Reg. Iowa Vol. Cavalry Co., I, September 9th. 1863, and served during the remainder of the Civil War and was honorably discharged March 15, 1866, by reasons of expiration of term of enlistment and the close of the war. Then he returned to his home town.

On December 17th he was married to Miss Sarah E. Davenport. To this union four sons and four daughters were born. All have passed on to the other life except Mrs. Mae Tucker of Farmington, Iowa, who along with her mother, his sorrowing wife, and a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Chas. Vance of Eddyville, Iowa, and four grandchildren, are left to mourn the loss of a loved one gone to meet his children gone on before.

After leaving Eddyville the family kept a hotel for some time in Fairmount, Missouri, and later in Wyanondah, Missouri. They then came to Farmington where they have resided for twenty-five years or more. Here he united with Miles King Post No. 254. Dept. of Iowa. G. A. R. of which he was an honored member, and filled the various offices in the Post to which his comrades gladly called him from commander to officer of guard. He was ever loyal to his comrades and the flag. He has gone to join his comrades on "Fame's eternal camping ground."

He has been afflicted for several years with increasing infirmities of no alarming nature until several weeks ago, since which time he has failed rapidly with much pain, until September 4, 1922, when death called him to his home and gave release, at the age of 76 years, lacking one day. One sister, Mrs. Louise Rouze of Newton, who is not able to be present in this sad hour, is the last living member of his father's family and will deeply grieve for her brother's departure.

The family has the full sympathy of the city on this time of their profound sorrow.

Funeral services were held at the home at 3 P. M. September 5th with Elder James McKiernan of the G. A. R. post in charge. Interment was made in the city cemetery. Mt. Moriah lodge A. F. M. conducted the Masonic services at the grave.
