Birth: Oct., 1854
Hendricks County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jan. 3, 1865
Hendricks County
Indiana, USA

In September or October 1854, Rebecca Vinzant was born in Indiana. (Betty Berndt, a primary researcher, had a cousin doing some checking on various families in the Greencastle, Putnam County Courthouse. She met an older man who asked her what she was doing, and she told him she was looking for family information on Davis, several other families, and VINZANT. He said he did not know any of them, but on a farm in Hendricks County, Center Township, where Road #75 dead ends on a cross road, across the road, through a fence and down the creek is a grave of a ten year old girl named Rebecca Vinzant, born 1855, died 1865. He did not remember whether it gave parents' names or not. Adjacent were two other stones but not legible). Rebecca is listed only in the 1860 Hendricks County census.
Kenneth Roy Vinzant and his wife have visited the grave site for Rebecca Vinzant. The gravestone reads: "REBECCA VINZANT DIED Jan. 3, 1865, AGED 10 yrs & 3 mo." This land is about two miles north of Danville, Indiana (1578N 50E) and is owned for the past 32 years by Roland and Betty Thompson. This is farm land and the site itself is situated in a dense timber area of the farm overlooking a creek. She is buried on land that I don't think was owned by any Vinzant. According to Roland Tompson, the abstract and deed do not show any Vinzant as previous owner. Betty Thompson painted an oil of the grave site when she and Roland first purchased the property and it hangs on their living room wall today (1997).
