He knew and was known to more persons in Houston, Bibb, Dooly and Peach counties than any other man and he could hail each of these acquaintances by their given names. The friends lamented more than the mere passing of a another friend; it left a hole in their lives; left a wide space in their existence barren and empty. For Mr. Vinson, they said was a brilliant conversationalist, and a keen humorist and when he talked, he became the center of all interest.There's a lot of grind work to genealogy research that can in no way be described as fun, but when you find a little something that gives insight into an ancestor's character, it really gets interesting.
