My Great Grandpa Fred taught my dad (who shared his middle name) how to spell his middle name. He taught my dad it was Vinson. It wasn't until my dad joined the army that he found out that it was actually Vincent, as was Fred's. So I always get a little laugh when ever I see my great Grandfather's name listed as "Fred Vinson", which I have found in a few places. It is also why I have chosen to leave it on here, just the way I found it. :)
Fred married a 2nd time to Josephine Ford. They're marriage ended in divorce. Years later it is said that Fred received a notice from the military regarding a son that Josephine must have been pregnant with at the time of their split.
