Generation No. 1

    1. Fred Vincent  (David2, John "Jack" (Vinson)1) was born August 19, 1880, and died April 25, 1958.  He married Effie Iona McFarland May 25, 1900 in Unionville, MO, daughter of William McFarland and Susan Richmond.  She was born August 11, 1882 in Putnam County, MO, and died November 16, 1975 in Unionville, Putnam Co., MO.
Notes for Fred Vincent:
Many in the David Vincent Family were talented musicians and singers.  Every time the family got together for visits, picnics, celebrations or any other reason there was always music and singing as a prime activity of all present.  I have fond memories of those times.  Of David's five children, Fred [b. 1881] and his family carried the entertainment tradition into the next generations.  Major contributors were Fred's two youngest sons, Bill Fern [b. 1912] and George [b. 1920], who with other members of the family presented the Vincent Family on WHO radio [Des Moines, IA] in the 1930's.  How well I remember the beautiful and lively music played by the Vincent's [including my grandpa and uncles] during family reunions and birthday gatherings.  As for me, I played a pretty good radio and phonograph.

Bill Fern's son, Johnny Lee Vincent [b. 1940] had a daughter, Rhonda, who has become a country and western [bluegrass] music star making CD's and touring the country.  From her professional biography:
"Vincent began her professional music career at the age of 5 with her family’s band the Sally Mountain Show. She has 18 albums to her credit, the most recent being Back Home Again on Rounder Records. Her father bought her a snare drum, stand, and brushes for her 6th birthday. She became the official drummer for the Sally Mountain Show. She began playing the mandolin at 8 years and the fiddle at age 10 and plays most any stringed instrument. Music was not a choice but a way of life in the Vincent home. Everyday after school, her father and grandfather would be waiting for her and they would play music until dinner, then friends came by and they would pick until time for bed. The family would travel to festivals every weekend. While it might have been easy for her to tire of this lifestyle, Rhonda grew to love it."  [See her website at www.rhondavincent.com]
