    3. Hi Sue - This is great information - let me go over this again and see what is new to me. I am still looking for my people and the name Vincent is especially interesting to me as my gt.gd.fa.'s oldest brother was named Vincent and he disappeared after the 1860 census. There is also a Vincent Gray who is buried along the Oregon Trail. I figure the dates are about right for that to be him, as he appears to have been on the run from the law for horse stealing. Since he ran before the trial I have to assume he was guilty. He was about 16 at the time. My gd.fa. was Silas George, and his siblings were Vincent, James Isaac, John (MIA Civil War), Abigail and Sarah. Thanks for helping me bring my database into more useful service. I enjoy helping others but have so little to go on for most names in my database. Of course, I also hope to make my own connection back to Virginia some day, which so far, looks like SW Va - Monroe/Greenbriar, Giles, etal.. Thanks again. I will get back to you.
