- VINZANT, WILGAMOT, WOLGAMOT
Vernon V. Vinzant
on Monday, October 5, 1998
In the Dawson County Museum in Lexington, Nebraska, in 1995, the museum had two references in their data files to Vinzant. The FIRST is a note in reference to a piano and Bessie Vinzant (known individual). The SECOND is a note about a Bible:
Genealogical Information from unregistered Holy Bible: Holy Bible, New York, 1878. from badly torn and creased page in the front of the book written in pencil:
"Mary Florence Vinzant was born Dec 18-0
E- - - - - - Vinzant was born May 12, 1872, Linville (sic), Iowa"
I am trying to establish relationship of Mary Florence to Eugene Wilgamot Vinzant, b. 5/12/1872. Eugene is son of William Vinzant (b. 2/9/1845 & bur. Keeley Cem., Bertrand NE) and unknown spouse. Perhaps someone would look at bible and could interpret date? Wilgamot/Wolgamot is also known to be a family name and am seeking a tie between Eugene and any Wilgamot/Wolgamot family.

NICKOL, SMIDT Looking for a Virginia NICKOL born abt 1911. Believe she may have been born in Dawson Co., NE or had roots here. She may have been married to a SMIDT. Do not know if it would be a first or second marriage. Think her name in 1947 would have been Virginia SMIDT. All responses appreciated.

Lorens Larsson is supposed to have lived at Gothenburg. He was born 10 March 1849, Christian Lorentz Frithiof, son of Lars Larsson at Kvarna farm, Vamlingbo parish, Gotland, Sweden.
