Note: BIR-MAR-DEATH: Interview with Gerry Vincent Maple about 1972
The family legend is that Elmer borrowed money and bought a cow when he was young. He had to default on the loan. Times were less tolerant then and to preserve his reputation he had to leave town. He actually left the state. No one knows if any of this is true but it is known his children were born all across the country. He was a well educated man for the time. He had a high school education (which was rare for the period) and taught school among other things. His first six children were born in the town of Dora in Walker County, Alabama. The other children were born from 1912 to 1929 in Truman, AK, Flat River, MO, Webb City, MO, Spelder City, MO, Henrietta, OK, and National City, CA as the family moved West. His oldest daughter, Nona Mae, paid at least two visits back East to Alabama, the state of her birth where she remembered the cousins of her youth. She stayed at least a few nights with Wilburn (Hap) and Doris Vincent during what was probably her first visit in 1962. Hap's son, Ronald (Ronnie) remembers her visit. Many years later, in the early 1970s, Elmer's youngest daughter, Geraldine (Gerry), contacted the family back East and gave Ronnie the genealogy she had compiled on her father's family. Geraldine and her sister (which is unknown) drove back East around 1976 to attend a family reunion attended mostly by descendants of Oakley and Oma Seay Vincent. Gerry and her sister were there to represent the Elmer Vincent family. Visiting there also were James Alfred Vincent and Grover Clarence Vincent, sons of Alvin Vincent. This visit by Gerry and her sister sparked an age old family interest in Hap. He and Doris went West on two occasions to visit Elmer's children and became close friends with the family that lived in San Diego, CA.
