Celia Vincent / Vinson of  Tennessee, Alabama
I am searching for a group which used the VINCENT name simultaneously with the name VINSON. My chief target is the family of Celia VINSON/VINCENT, a female who seems to have been born ca 1785 at an unknown place. She resided in the central Tennessee area in 1830's and 1840's. There were several people of this surname in the area that is now White/Putnam/DeKalb/Jackson/Sumner/&Wilson counties over a period from 1800 through th 1870's.  

 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  Added 20 May 2005.

 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 added 11 July 2005.

John W. Vincent  and Jesse Clement Vincent of South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi 
My relatives apparently came to the US from Great Britain and started in the Carolinas. At one point they may have had a Methodist minister in the family, hence my name John Wesley. My dad and I both had the same name, but someone preceding us in the family apparently had the name earlier, perhaps, my Great Grandfather, Jesse's Dad, John Vincent. My Grandfather, Jesse Clement Vincent was born around or before 1860. The family may have originally started in South Carolina around Spartanburg. The family may have moved to Alabama on land grants obtained after the Indian Wars. Jesse had three brothers Rufus Vincent, Charles Crawford Vincent, and Millard Filmore Vincent. The family lived in Talledaga County Alabama near Vincent Alabama, before spliting up. As near as I can figure, the "family farm" may now be at the bottom of Logan Martin Lake. Jesse moved to Mississippi and may have been followed there by Charles. Apparently, the family lost their property after the Civil War, having paid taxes to the "wrong side." Jesse died in 1917-1918 during the influenza epidemic. He was married to Lucy (perhaps Lucretia Thomas of Agusta, Mississippi, born in 1867. My Dad was born in 1909 in New Hebron, Mississippi, eventually moving to New Orleans when he lived most of his life. If anyone can find a connection, please let me know.

John Vincent of Kensington, Middlesex, England, Hampshire Co., Virginia, and Fayette County, Indiana
My ancestor, John Vincent, was born 24 Aug 1750 in Kensington, Middlesex, England. He came to America in 1760 at age 12, fought in the Revolution from Hampshire Co. VA and died in 1837 in Fayette Co. IN. He married Sarah JOHNSON, said to be a sister to the father of Pres. Andrew Johnson, but don’t know if that’s true. I have recently received information that he was shanghaied on the streets of London and brought to America on a trading ship, sold into an apprenticeship from which he ran away. If this is true, it will make his ancestry very difficult, if not impossible to trace.

Seeking relatives or descendants of Joseph John Vincent.  Here is the information I have that I believe is fairly accurate:  Joseph came to the US from England, probably between 1910 and 1925, and settled in Detroit. The family name was likely Vincenzo, but Joseph changed it to Vincent.   His father, Pasquale, was originally from a village near Canae, Italy.  It is unknown if his mother, Madeleine, was Italian or English. He had several siblings, but I do not think any of them immigrated to the US.  One of his sisters married a man who was from Switzerland -- he was some sort of ambassador.  Joseph was married twice.  I believe his first wife was named Anne, and they had a son.  She died, and he later married Eugena Rufinska, a woman 20 years his junior. They had one son, John Joseph in 1947.  Joseph passed away in the early '70s.  If anyone has information, or if you are a descendant from this "Vincenzo/Vincent" line, I would like to hear from you. e-mail Fran Vincent.

Moses Vincent of Anson Co., NC
We believe Moses Vinson is the father of our four brothers; John Vincent and  Jonathan Vincent (twins) born 1800, Charles Vincent born 1804 or 1805 and Reuben Vincent born about 1806.  We found a Moses Vinson in the 1800 Census of Anson Co., NC with 2 children under age 5. We believe this to be our twins John and Jonathan who were born Jan. 1, 1800. Not very far away from this family, we found Rubin Vinson in 1800 Anson Co., NC. I believe this is the father of Moses Vinson. We have not been able to prove this by a marriage record yet, but we believe the mother and wife of Moses Vinson was Mary Barns. Do you know of a Vincent / Vinson family that was in NC about 1750? Have you come across a Rubin Vinson family? Mary Sue Mason email added 26 December 2005, revised 10 February 2008.

Rodman Gardner and Polly (Hubbard) Vincent of Oneida, NY
Regarding Polly Hubbard Vincent there was mention of "a big Bible printed in Edinburgh in 1746 which contains the family records of the Vincents". This quote came from an article in the Rome, N.Y. Daily Sentinel, 24 September 1932. Polly Hubbart(d) married Rodman Gardner Vincent in 1827. Polly was the only "real" daughter of the American Revolution to join a N.S.D.A.R. chapter, the Fort Stanwix Chapter. She was buried next to her husband and four of her children in the Gravesville Cemetary near Annesville, Oneida, N.Y. She also was the oldest REAL daughter of the American Revolution she died at age 98. That Bible could tell some stories I'll bet and I would be very interested in learning of the genealogical information and current location of the Bible. email. 25 June 2005.

 Vincent Family from name change 70 years ago.
My name is Carol and my surname by marriage is Vincent. I am trying to trace when my husbands surname changes. Way back in the family, Sir George Somers was shipwrecked on Bermuda when he was sent to become one of the Governors of Virginia USA. This was in the 1600's, Somewhere down the line one of the family married a family called Wortley and this resulted in a double barreled name. Up until about seventy years ago but somehow the name got changed to Vincent and nobody can find out why. Any information would be gratefully received. Regards Carol, email added 21 February 2001.
