Still looking for my elusive Henry VINCENT. He came to America sometime before 1850 where he was found in Cumberland Co., PA with his wife, Sarah. (She being the daughter of Henry WAGNER.)
By 1860 Henry and his family are located in Lancaster Co., PA, Rapho Twsp.
Henry, b. 1824, Eng
Sarah, b. 1823, PA
In 1870 the family had moved to Mifflin Co., PA

140/146: Vincent, Henry, 49, b. England, Miner
Vincent, Sarah A., 51, b. PA
Vincent, Martha A., 18, b. PA
Vincent, Sarah J., 15, b. PA
Vincent, Samuel, 14, b. PA
Vincent, Franklin, 8, b. PA
Vincent, Harry, 4, b. PA
In 1880 they had move to Carroll Co., IL, Mt. Carroll:
Henry VINCENT, Head, M, Laborer, 58, b. Eng., father b. Eng., mother b. Eng.
Sarah VINCENT, Wife, F, Keeping House, 57, b. PA, PA, PA
Harry VINCENT, Son, M, Cattle Hearder, 14, PA, Eng., Eng.
Anna VINCENT, G-dau., F, Attending School, 11, PA, PA, PA
Both Henry and Sarah are buried in Carroll Co., IL, along with most of their children. Their daughter, Martha, married John/Jackson Stoddard/Stoddern in PA and moved to Nebraska. (John was born in England about 1850.) All but one of Martha's children were born in PA so she and John never moved to Illinois with the rest of the family.
Sound familiar? I know there is a great deal of information on a Vincent family from England who settled in the Jo Daviess area of Illinois, but my family does not fit that particular mold.
