Many thanks to Emily Kantor for an email in 2-09 that included the record of what appears to be a deed from Elizabeth's father, Drury Vinson, to his son Archibald (full extract on Drury Vinson page) which suggests Elizabeth's mother was named Winifred and perhaps her grandfather was named John Vinson Sr. and perhaps there was an Uncle Aaron Vinson

 maybe Archibald

John not proven to be her son, and Troy may be the same person as Reuben T.


Drury Vinson


possibly Winifred


spouse's parents:

Alexander Averet Sr.



maternal grandparents:


paternal grandparents:

maybe John Vinson Sr.

Her maiden name was sometimes spelled Venson or "Vincent." Considering the French pronunciation of Vincent is Vinson and Averet would be something like Averay or Avera (as it was alternately spelled), this suggests the families originated in France or Scotland.


Her husband's father was in the Revolutionary War.
