Grayson, Ky., Friday, August 1, 1902 


Of a Highly Respected Citizen 

On Thursday of last week, the death of James A. Vincent occurred at his home near Grayson. He had been in bad health 
for some time and his death had been expected. 

Mr. Vincent was not a native born Kentuckian. He was born in Greenbrier, Va., on the 29th day of November, 1835, and 
came to this state over half a century ago when he was a boy. On Nov. 6th, 1870 he was married to Susan R. Richards, from 
which union were born five children, four boys and a girl. In 1871, one year after his marriage he confessed the Savior 
and was baptized by J. R. Botts, becoming a member of the Christian church. Since that time he has been a constant worker 
for good and before death came expressed a satisfaction of meeting his Savior.

The community has lost a valued citizen, but the greater loss is upon the family for whom the Herald extends sympathy. 

Note by DKT: The Old Cemetery Index on the Carter County Web Site shows James and his wife Susan to be buried in the Old Vincent Cemetery, along with a number of other “Vincent’s”. James A. Vincent h/Susan Richards Vincent November 29, 1835-July 24, 1902 Susan Richards Vincent August 16, 1845-
