Why Genealogy?

Bill began working on his own family tree after his mother passed away in 1984. He had been interested in her family research before, and picked up her efforts soon after she died. His first online genealogy experience was with using Compuserve and Mailing Lists, years before the Worldwide Web was created. (Yes, he's ancient.) His mother's ancestors traditionally valued their ancestry and passed on a rich tradition of oral family history.
Virginia and Southern Colonies

Early Southern & Kentucky Roots

Bill was born and raised in Kentucky, as have been all his ancestors for the past 190 years. Several ancestors came to Kentucky before statehood in 1792. Most of Bill's Kentucky ancestors came from Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, plus some from Delaware, and South Carolina. Just a few were Yankees from Pennsylvania and New York. Bill's Virginia cousins include US Presidents, Governors, First Ladies, and Frontier Explorers. (See list below.)

Kentucky Counties

Bill and his family were raised in Grayson and Edmonson Counties, for whom he is the KyGenWeb coordinator. Other family came from Adair, Barren, Green, Hardin, LaRue, Lincoln, Marion, Metcalfe, Nelson, Washington, and Wayne Counties. He has a large personal database of over 100,000 entries, especially of people linked to those areas.
Kentucky Counties of Principal Interest

Historic Roots

Thirty Patriot Ancestors of the American Revolution (see list below), plus one or two English Loyalists.
Most of Bill's Kentucky kinfolk fought for the Union during the Civil War, even slaveholders. One ancestor who didn't own slaves was a Confederate in the Kentucky Orphan Brigade.
Other ancestors fought in the French and Indian War, Northwest Indian War, and the War of 1812.
Two ancestors, James Wood and James Watson, were captured at Preston in 1715 during the First Jacobite Rebellion in England, and deported as prisoners to Jamestown, Virginia.
Bill's Personal Hero is his Uncle, Lieutenant Colonel Edward Lane, who earned Engineering degrees at West Point, University of Kentucky and Harvard, and died tragically in Vietnam.


  • Ph.D. Pharmaceutical Scientist, Chemist, and College Soccer Coach.
  • Bill's father was a Haberdasher, Farmer, Agriculturalist, and Politician.

DNA Tested
Bill Vincent's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Bill or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Bill Vincent: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 67 markers, haplogroup I-BY3406, FTDNA kit #91114 + Y-Chromosome Test 67 markers, haplogroup I-Z63
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:

Hi Bill!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 2000!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

PS: I kept running into your corrections the whole weekend!

Thanks. I appreciate being appreciated. LOL. That was an epic weekend, Pip. Our team finished 3rd for the 2nd year in a row, which makes me quite proud and satisfied. Congratulations to the Super Sweepers who did well, also. I ended up 9th overall last year with just under 2070 points, and beat that considerably this year finishing 13th over all. I think the bad weather and the pandemic worked to keep people inside and focused. You and I were working on Gender suggestions at the same time, from different starting points. When I ran into your work, I knew we were of like minds. Most of my False Suggestions came from Gender and from Nicknames, both of which can be a little different in the South. LOL. Names also change with time. My grandfather's given name, Hillary, was strictly a man's name years ago, as was the given name Meredith.

Hello Bill,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Sarah, I am intermittently rather than continuously involved in the project. If it's no trouble, I would like to continue to be associate with the Scottish Clans Team as well as the Scotland Project. Thanks... Bill

You don't need to ask. I recorded that it was "Cleanup after Merge". That implies that the profile contained duplicate items from the result of a merge, which needed to be consolidated or removed, as was the case.

Bill, your comments are well noted, and I agree. The problem arises with multiple spouses and perhaps children with each one - when it becomes an issue to deliniate when one marriage might have started and / or ended. And as long as there is a field to document the end of a marriage - for any reason, sometimes the date of a death will have to serve.
