Edgar,

I contacted you awhile back about Andy Jackson Vance and Molly Roberts Vance. You did a fine job for me on them. I have a question for you.

Nancy "Blair" Vance is my GGG-Grandmother married to John Henry Vance and the mother of Andrew Jackson Vance. What I'm wanting to know is two things.

#1 Is there a book that I can purchase on the Listings of the people buried in the Gibson Cemetery in Lee County, And.........

#2 Do you have anything that tells where Nancy "Blair" Vance is buried.

Nancy Blair Vance Passed in 1929 in Middlesboro, KY.

Here is a Death Certificate Report on her....

Died: Middlesboro, Ky, Bell County on November 28, 1929

Birth: July 8th, 1841 88years 4 months and 22 days

Birthbirth: VA
Occupation: Housewife
Fathers Name: Jacob Blair III
Mothers Name: Jane McClanahan Blair
Informant: George Vance/Middlesboro, Ky (Son) Andy's Brother.
Cause of Death: Cerebral Hemorage
PLACE OF BURIAL: WHEELER, VA.
DATE OF BURIAL: NOVEMBER 29, 1929


This was signed by George Vance that she was buried in Lee County, WHEELER, VA. I'am desperate to fine her resting place. I know that Molly "Roberts" Vance is buried in the Gibson Cemetery in Wheeler and I have visted the Cemetery. Most of the stones are in grown up bush and are turned over and I was unable to lift. Plus, it was during the summer that I was there and all I could think of was Rattle Snakes, so needless to say, I didn't stay to long. Anyway, since I know there have been family members buried in this cemetery, including Molly Vance, Andrew's wife and a couple of children who past at young ages, could it be that Nancy "Blair" Vance is there also???? I have a note from a Great Aunt, stating she is buried behind the Rock Quarry in Wheeler. I checked this out also, to no aveil. The only thing I found behind any rock quarry in Wheeler, were rocks for stones and no names. Being that it was in 1929, I'm sure there was a stone with an inscription and she is in Wheeler somewhere.

Please, help me in located her stone. It's a quest of mine and I can't let go. Thank You for being so kind before and I hope you can help me this time.

I also would like to purchase an Historical Book of Lee County if there are any available. Any book actually with any information on the family.

Thanks Again,

Nancy
