The Baisden Family Cemetery, which I visited on 22 June 2014 is located 2.1 miles up Buck Fork of Harts Creek in Logan County, West Virginia. The Mathias “Tice” Elkins family, including Albert F. Gore (Elkins), originally used the cemetery. Today, it is best known as Troy Vance Cemetery. Troy Vance first married Emily Gore, granddaughter of Tice and Pricy (Mullins) Elkins, then married Almeda Baisden, daughter of Thomas and Josephine (Mullins) Baisden. Emily and Almeda were first cousins. Both of Troy’s mothers-in-law are buried in the cemetery (they were sisters), as are both of his fathers-in-law. Troy’s mother married first to Wash Vance, then to Albert F. Gore (Elkins); in other words, his widowed mother married his widowed father-in-law. The McCloud family connects to the cemetery through Albert F. Gore’s first wife, Sarah McCloud.
