Peter Vinson - From "The Howery Family Bible"

Page One Page Two Howery Family Bible (Methodist Episcopal) Published 1841 A note is written in German by Peter Vinson: "Deases Buch habe ich zum Andengen an meene ferstorbene Frauw Mary Vinson gestorben den 18ten Marz 1886" Peter Vinson (Should have been written: "Dieses Buch habe ich zum Andenken an meine verstorbene Frau Mary Vinson [verb missing], gestorben den 18ten Maerz 1886") Translation: "I [wrote? have? keep?] this book in the memory of my deceased wife Mary Vinson, [who] died 18th March 1886" Page One: Marriages FAMILY RECORD Marriage is Honourable in All MARRIAGES George Howrey was born June the 8. 1793 Susanna Barbery Howrey was born April the 15. 1791 Jacob Howrey was born August 29. 1816 George Howrey was born August the 14. 1818 Eliza Howrey was born December the 16 1819 Samuel Howrey was born May 8 1821 Jacob Howrey was born October the 18. 1822 Susanna Howrey was born October the 15. 1823 John Howrey was born December the 18. 1824 Mariah Howrey was born April the 13. 1826 Daniel Howrey was born August the 17. 1827 Isaac Howrey was born May the 7. 1830 Samuel Howrey was Bornd the 8 May 1821 John L. Vinson and Flora A. Hamilton were united in the Holy Bonds of Matrimony March 2nd 1847 by the Rev. C. C. Edwards. [This is found on another page of the Bible and was copied on to a "post-a-note" and included on this page when it was scanned.] Page Two: Deaths FAMILY RECORD Blessed are the Dead Who Die in the Lord DEATHS Jacob Howrey departed this life August 25, 1816 George G Howrey departed this life October 13. 1837 Jacob Howrey departed this life January the 18. 1823 Isaac Howrey departed this life February the 1, 1847 Susanna B. Howery Departed this Life February Two? 1862 Mary Vinson Departed This Life Thursday evening March 18th 1886 (George John aka John George and Susanna Barbery Howrey/Howery bought land in Manchester township, Dearborn Co. IN in 1818. All of their children were born there with the possible exception of John who may have been born in MD. It is unclear whether it was the father or son who died in 1847.) This Bible belongs to a lady whose mother was brought up by Edith Smith, who may have been a missionary. We have not figured out the connection between Edith Smith, and the Vinson, Hamilton and Howery families. (The Bible has the notation that it belongs to Edith Smith. Edith was born in 1878, well after all but one of the events recorded. She would have been 8 years old when Mary Howery Vinson died. At least some of the Howery family went to the Methodist Episcopal Church, but as this is an English Bible, it appears unlikely that it belonged to Susanna the mother. She was born in Switzerland and likely spoke German. At least one daughter Eliza/Elizabeth, spoke and wrote only German until she was about 75 years old.) (Peter Vinson/Vincon/Vincent/Vensen married Mary Howery in Dearborn Co. IN 10 June 1857. They were living in Ripley Co. IN in Aug. 1859. Associated with him is a John L. Vinson who married Flora A. Hamilton, 2 March 1847. Also a William Vinson.) Updated information about Peter Vinson & Mary Howery from Judie N. The owner of the Howery Bible was Edith Maye Smith, a daughter of ALice Vinson m _______ Smith. Alice was the daughter of Mary Howery & Peter Vinson.. Peter is found in the 1880 Ripley Co., IN census:
Vinson, Peter     54  Nursery Business         Ger  Ger   Ger
        Mary      54  Keeping house            Ind  Ger    Ger
        Alice     25  daughter                 Ind  Ger    Ind
        John      21  son (maybe scratched out)  ditto        
        William   18  son                        ditto
        Cordelia  12  daughter                   ditto
        Edith M    2  gr daughter                ditto
Peter is listed as Maimed, Crippled, Bedridden or otherwise disabled. There is a mark under "Number of Months this person has been unemployed during the Census year". The mark looks like an "L", but could be a 2. Actually, Mary's parents were neither one born in Germany. Her mother was Swiss and her father of Swiss extraction and probably born in VA. There are some notes from the Ripley Co. Hist. Soc. in which an obit for a Mary Vincent shows her born in Germany (an error), but with the correct death date and correct age. Mary no doubt spoke German. Her mother learned to write English when she was 70's. Her step father only spoke/wrote German.
