Patsy's Primrose Lane


Patsy Primrose Lane contains family history taken from the familes of

Robert and Patsy Finley Vinson. I began working on my family history and my husband's in 1965 after our marriage. I was lucky to have grandparents and great-grandparents and great-aunts & uncles who were still living. Robert also had his grandparents and one-great grandmother living in 1965.

Just a note that I will be working on my pages and adding more information, but life has a way of throwing kinks in what we plan.


Well, 2013 has arrived and I did not do much work on my website this past year. We have lost several family members this year as we are all getting older. I hope to keep adding to this site more often in the future.


I belong to "OPHGR " which has a lot of new information that our Archivists are working diligently to process and transcribe to put up on the internet as FREE information. We have submitted to the Library of Congress 9 books we transcribed at Quitman, Wood County, Texas. Go to the link below and take a look at the site.

As a youngster, I was always facinated by all kinds of history and finding the many branches of my Finley ( paternal) & Conway (maternal) family just came naturally. On the next few pages, you will find out about both my paternal and maternal family. In 1965, I married and thus began the search for the Vinson (paternal) & Werner (maternal) lines of my husband's family. Grandma Mildredge Scroggins Vinson helped me with the Meador & Scroggins and Cox - Vinson lines as well as my in-laws, Earnest and Mildred Werner Vinson.

I want to give credit to my many cousins who have helped research our many lines. Three of my cousins without whose help I would be lost are Wynell Walraven Choate, Johnnie Finley Horton, and June Walker Staton (1924-1995). We have spent many hours in dusty court house basements, walking through overgrown graveyards, traveling to distant states, and looking up sources in libraries for those elusive members of our family as we shared lots of laughter, sighs and excitement.
