Our Family Tree was documented by Cousin Caroline 

Cousin Caroline

last page update:  Sep. 5, 2014
As you can tell by the Spreadsheet on the Home Page, Cousin Caroline descends from Louisa Catherine Vincent (1837-1898), Maud Kelly's grandmother.  Caroline grew up with this great family legacy of records preservation.  She has continued the work.

We will ever be grateful for the years of research Cousin Caroline has invested in organizing and documenting the extant Vincent Family Records entrusted to her family.  Caroline's documented evidence is extensive.  A few of the records she has gathered are listed below.  Feel free to read online or download for personal use but please DO NOT post them on other websites without Caroline's permission.  Thank you for for being courteous.

On Aaron Vinson's page (1747-1791), I mentioned there are "records [on Cousin Caroline's page where] we have proof of his relationship with his father, his wife, and his heirs."  Those sources are below.  Especially see the July 2014 email where Cousin Caroline explains how these sources fill in important links in our lineage.
