Proof for portions the Vinson lineage is hard to come by. There is much confusion (at least in my wife's ancestral lineage) past my wife's 2nd great grandparents. BUT, considering this and collected supported documentation I will present what appears to be the correct Vinson lineage.
I want to express my sincere appreciation for all the help and sharing of Vinson information by Marolyn Howell. She has been of tremendous help in trying to sort out some of the VINSON mystery. Mark Freeman and others have all contributed to this effort and with time hopefully we will solve, and prove, the lineages for which we search.
