Vance Cemetery


Paynesville, McDowell County WV

Contributor: Kathy Bemisdarfer

Please note:  This cemetery survey is current only up to about 1985 and not as of today.
This survey appears in the David Vance and Family Book by Dale Vance, Wanda Green
and Edna Mullins Horn.

The Vance Cemetery is located just off Rt. 83, atop Bradshaw Mountain, Paynesville, WV. Traveling toward the Virginia state line, it is located to the left of the highway. The cemetery was started when Floyd, infant son of David & Cosby (Lester) Vance was buried on property belonging to them. In 1981, Stella (Vance) Lively and Lavonna (Vance) Mullins compiled a list of those buried in the Vance Cemetery. Jerry Cantreli compiled a record also in 1981. Wanda Green and Dale Vance took the information already compiled and updated the cemetery to date, identifying graves that were not identified in other records. We collected and compiled the information from members of the Vance family, relatives and friends. Several people came to the cemetery to help identify graves that are unmarked. There are several graves still unidentified. We tried every effort to identify all of them, but as years have gone by, so many forgot who was buried where in the cemetery. If markers are not there, it makes it difficult. There will be mistakes, even though we have made several trips to the cemetery to try to be as accurate as possible. The graves are not in rows and the cemetery is on a hillside which makes it difficult to do a map of the cemetery and get exact location of graves. Instead of drawing a map, we have numbered the graves, hoping they will be easy to locate, if you are looking for an exact location of a certain grave. If standing in the center of the cemetery, the graves are numbered left to right across the cemetery. Our apologies for the mistakes that will appear in this cemetery record. In such an undertaking as this is, mistakes will appear despite the best efforts of all concerned. Our deepest thanks go to many of you who helped identify the unmarked graves and those of you who came to the cemetery to point out exact locations of certain graves and those who furnished information to get the cemetery record as complete as possible.
