  • Notes 
    • DEED: Rutherford County Deed Book O, p. 103, doc. 81. Purchase of land from Beverly Harris. Deed executed 27 Dec 1820, recorded 1 Aug 1822. Deed of purchase from Beverly Harris of Williamson Co to Henry Vincent Sr of Rutherford Co. Land on the waters of Alexander's Creek on Duck River. Beginning in James Wright's east boundary line 20 poiles south of his north east corner, running east 60 poles thence north 77 1/3 poles, thence west 60 poles thence south 77 1/3 poles to beginning. Witnesses: William Grimes, Frances P. Devore, William Vinson.

      DEED: 27 Sep 1820 - Rutherford County Deed Book N, p. 343, doc. 173.Purchase of 5 acres from Allsea Harris by Henry Vincent. Land on the western branches of little west fork of Stones River. Same land granted to James Kittle by State of Tennessee. Recorded 1 Jun 1821.

      We need to prove that in fact Henry Vincent, son of Alexander Vincent,was the Henry who married Rachel Caits and fathered Adolphus. Based on the dates, it is possible that Henry, son of Henry, was the husband of Rachel Caits.

      Henry Vinson witnessed the inventory for Joshua Cates, dec'd on 22 Dec 1838 in Rutherford Co., Tenn. Among the articles included in the inventory were 4 negroes and one note for $81.50 on Henry Vinson due 25 Dec 1838. Total for the inventory was $28676.25. The inventory was signed by John Cates and Henry Vinson.
