It is generally believed that these people
came from North Carolina, maybe by various routes and at various times,
probably from that area that bordered southeast Virginia.
Celia, by naming Patterson, seems to be connected to males (probably her sons) named Anthony and Nathan, and she appears to have had a daughter (sister?) named Charity who was born probably in Kentucky ca 1815 and who married Samuel C. STOVER, probably in Tennessee. That couple resided in the DeKalb/Putnam counties area up to 1870. The two males appear to have moved over to Wilson county and one is listed in the census there as a mulatto. I am not sure if Celia was a VINSON by birth or was married to one of the surname. Charity also wound up in Wilson county and is buried at Leeville in that county.
There appears to be a connection to a
Moses VINSON/ VINCENT who was in the same
area and later had land in Madison County, Alabama.
It appears that you are the person with the most knowledge on this family and I am of course hoping that your files have something helpful. Dan Webber email CKale54790@aol.com Added 20 May 2005.
Ephraim Vinson/Vincent, Lucinda Vincent and George M. Vincentof Maryland and Delaware
I am trying to find relatives for Ephraim Vinson / Vincent (clerical thing - it is Vinson in Delaware and Vincent in Maryland, who knows why. Sometimes it is both in one document) born circa 1794 in Delaware, lived in Little Creek Hundred until after 1843, when he and his (possibly second) wife, Brittana Cooper Mills Vinson / Vincent moved to Barren Creek, Maryland. I have checked all available wills and land records, and this Ephraim apparently had no parents.
Also looking for parents for Lucinda Vinson / Vincent, who appeared in Little Creek in 1850 which a bunch of children, ranging in age from 22 to 12, and who also relocated to Barren Creek, by 1860.
Lucinda is my 3g grandmother, and I have no idea how she might be related to Ephraim, except she had no parents either.
In the 1830 census, Ephraim has 2 sons under 5 and a wife, but at that time Brittana was either still unmarried or married to her first husband, Unknown Mills, as she had a daughter, Ann (or Hester) M. Mills, born 1834ish. This Ann/Hester is my great-grandmother, having married George M. Vincent, born circa 1828, son of Lucinda. Email -- Elizabeth Smith EMSCRS@aol.com added 11 July 2005.
