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.
THE WEEKLY OSKALOOSA HEARLD
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1866
As the excursion train was nearing Eddyville on the return from Des Moines last Thursday, the engineer observed some one lying on the track and immediately "Whistled Down Brakes" but too late to prevent the car striking the head of the unfortunate individual scattering his brains over the track, of course instantly killing him. The deceased was an old citizen of this county - General Vance - who served in the War of 1812 and afterwards held the rank of Gen'1 in the Militia. He had been to Eddyville and after drinking to excess started on his way home when being overpowered by the liquor, he lay down, his head resting on the rail and it being in the curve of the road was not seen in time to stop the train.
