WELLINGTON VINCENT - At his death, February 24, 1914, Wellington Vincent was one of the leading citizens of
the Town of Union, New York, where he had been engaged in business for many years, and where he was esteemed and
respected by his fellow citizens for the uprightness of his qualities and for his good citizenship. He was born
March 8, 1861, in Susquehanna county, Pennsylvania.
Mr. Vincent's education was obtained in the public schools of his home town. He apprenticed himself to the carpenter's
trade, and after completing this apprenticeship engaged in this business on his own account. In his work of building
homes, he saw the opportunities to be derived from a properly conducted real estate business and in time added
this latter business to his original occupation, and was highly successful in this undertaking.
He was identified with the Farmers' National Bank of Union, New York, and was an earnest worker in the ranks of
the Prohibitionist parity, although he was not fortunate enough to live to see his hopes realized. Fraternally
Mr. Vincent was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and was a member of the Methodist church.
