The family of Zachary and Emma Dunaway-Milner family reunion will be held at 1 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the Walton Senior Citizen Building. Bring a covered dish.
The 28th annual Vincent family reunion was held Oct. 6 at Mammoth Cave National Park in Edmonson County. An annual Vincent family reunion has been held at Mammoth Cave since 1984.
The reunion idea was spearheaded by Howell W. Vincent, a well known Covington attorney.
In the late 1880’s and early 1900’s, there were 10 sons born to Gillis and Calvernia Vincent, in Edmondson County. Their mother was a believer in education and advanced that idea with her sons. She received an award for having the most sons enrolled at Western University in Bowling Green. In memory of their grandmother, a Calvernia Vincent Scholarship was established at Western.
Of the 10 sons, one was a banker, six were attorneys, two were teachers and one a businessman. Beverly M Vincent, a Brownsville attorney, was elected State Attorney General in 1936. He was elected U.S. Representative from Kentucky, 2nd District and served two terms there from 1937-1945. He was instrumental in getting Mammoth Cave recognized as a National Park. It seemed logical to have the annual reunions at this site each year.
Raymond L. Vincent, attorney, resided in Williamstown. In the early 50’s, he represented the counties of Gallatin, Grant, and Owen as commonwealth’s attorney.
The family members attending from this area were Jo Anne Vincent True and Rita Vincent Steger, whose father, Conrad L. Vincent, was a banker at Corinth for 43 years. Additional family members attending from this area were, Michael True and daughter, Lynn True-Mullins and daughter, and Caroline Hyden and daughter.
