Alonzo & Jane had 12 children and they lived on a homestead in West Nissouri. Alonzo lived his whole life in West Nissouri and was a respected pioneer. When 13 years of age, he professed a faith in Christ, he was baptized by his father into membership of the West Nissouri Baptist Church and remained a member until death. The last 30 year, he was a deacon. He retired from farming and lived in Thorndale. This was a distance from the Church, and so he acted as a Sunday School Superintendent and Bible Class Teacher in the Methodist Church where they appreciated his labors.

Jane was converted at the age of 51 and baptized into membership of the West Nissouri Baptist Church by Elder Salmon Vining. (The Vining Families, Chap. 3)- From an article pirnted written by Jane in the Canadian Baptist in 1913: €œIn the early days, the members of the Baptist Church were scattered all over the Twp., North, and East, & South, the Vining settlement being the most Central. They met oftener in those days. They had what they called €œConvenant Meetings,€ every fourth Saturday in the month at one o€™clock. The one, of which I am to speak, was held in the South Appointment, on the Ninth Concession in the McNee neighborhood. It was in the month of October and the weather was beautiful and there was a good attendance. Father and mother brought a goodly number home with them to stay over for the Sunday Service. The evening was spent in singing and talking and they did seem so happy! I thought to myself, €œHow they love one another,€ but my heart was sad. I could not enjoy it as they did. I thought, €œIf there is so much in this religion, why do they not say something to me about it?€ But they did not, and as the evening was pretty well advanced, they had prayer after which, €œUncle Jared,€ as we called Deacon Vining, the dear old man said, €œwe will sing the evening hymn,€ which I will try to reproduce: €œThe Day is past and gonel. The evening shades appear. O may we all remember well The night of death draws near.€ €œWe lay our garments by And on our beds to rest So death will soon disrobe us all. Of what we here possess.€ €œLord keep us safe this night Secure from every care. May Angels guard us while we sleep Till morning light appear.€ I stole away to my room but not to sleep or rest. I tossed and moaned until the clock struck tgwo in the morning. I said, €œWhat shall I do?€ and it seemed as if a voice said to me, €œBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.€ From that moment peace and joy came to me and the burden was removed. I was very timid and different in those days. I did not mention my experience in the home but thought I would tell my schoolmates about the joy I had found and the love I felt for others. On Monday when I went to school, I began telling them what an experience I had and how happy I felt. I said, €œI know my sins are all forgiven.€ They just laughed at me, and my young man said, €œOh she would like to get youse under the water.€ You can imagine my feelings! However, I summoned courage to offer myself to the church for baptism, was received and on a Sunday in Nov., I with two others, was baptized in the river Thames on the 11th C oncession of East Nissouri. The day was not propitious, it rained and snowed, but our hearts were warm, and we came home rejoicing.October 1, 1845, I was married to the late Alonzo Vining. Together we shared the joys and sorrows of this life for nearly fifty years. On May 10, 1895 he was taken suddenly ill, and on the 23rd passed away. His funeral on the 25th was from the old home church to the Vining Cemetery. There we laid him beside the loved ones who had gone before, to await the resurrection morn, when we shall see as we are seen, and know even as we are known. To us were given numerous children and fourteen great-grandchildren at the time of writing. I am passed the 79th milestone on life€™s journey and inetered my 80th year, not knowing when the message may come, €œThe Master has come and calleth for thee.€ I am, as it were, standing on the margin of the river, and looking across the sea, where mansions are prepared for me.€ I feel no dread of the crossing over. Jesus passed through death€™s dark portals before me and the lamp of his love will be my guide through the gloom. €œAll the gift of infinite grace.€Jane€™s eldest daughter, Pamela, died two days before Jane died. Jane had had pneumonia and looked like she would recover, but the shock of Pamela€™s death weaked her.

Thorndale has sustained a severe gthe choir andon the platform. God€™s ways are not our ways, else why should she, who was loved by all, the center of a large social circle, the comfort of her mother, be taken from our midst. She was the light of home, a consecrated Christina, a loving daughter and sister, a true friend, always genial and ready to oblige. Her sweet trained voice will no longer lead the choir or thrill the audience with beautiful solos. Her helpful presence will long be missed from the church and Bible Class. During her last hours she was surrounded by her mother, brothers, and sisters to whom she bid an affectionate farewell. Loving friends placed flowers around her and draped the Church in white. The Church and Sabbath School, as a tribute to their high regard, presented a beautiful floral harp. The funeral was held in the Methodist Church. The Rev. McKay, Baptist Minister of St. Marys, conducted the services, after which the precious form of our loved one was taken to the cemetery and laid on the family plot. The funeral procession numbered over eighty carriages, filled with sorrowing friends. The sun shone brightly and the heavens seemed to smile. We know that she had joined the Angelic choir and though she cannot return to us, we can go to her.

The Messrs Vining are young, industrious men and they will soon re-juvenate the old farm. The lot contains about 500 acres, wood, timber, pasture and tillage. The buildings can be put in good condition at small cost. There is quite an apple orchard on the farm. Mrs Jans Sawyer, the aged and well known former landlady, is in poor health; suffering from paralysis. She is unable to walk except by aid. Mrs. Sawyer, widow of the late Asaph Sawyer continues to keep the hotel, much to the convenience and accommodation of travelers.(Creamers and Sawyers of this article, could they be related to Jabez Sawyer & Edith Creamer??)

  •   The Pioneering Parkers from the chapter in the book by Ellen Wilson Meyer-TALES FROM TONKA-Stories of people Around Lake Minnetonka. Published by the Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Historical Society, 1993-Pages 48-49-50. The next time you drive by Parker€™s Lake Babtist Church , on county road 6 in Plymouth, try to imagine the highway gone and in its place a Indian trail skirting the north shore of the lake. Imagine, too, the excitement of four brothers staking out their claims and building their log cabins on the little gem of a lake that would bear their name. The four Parker brothers were so enthusiastic over €œtheir lake€ and the new frontier territory that they sent word back to Maine for a fifth brother, Daniel C. Parker, to bring his family and their parents to this new land of opportunity. In 1855, Daniel came by rail to Galena and by steamer to St. Paul with his wife, their small daughter and his parents. His mother, one of many taken ill on the boat, died of cholera on arrival and was buried €œin the deep forest of what is now Hoag Avenue in North Minneapolis,€ not far from the intersection of todays Olson Memorial Highway and North Seventh Street. After the burial, Daniel undertook the rough and rugged journey from St. Anthony to his brother€™s claims on the lake named for them. With his pregnant wife, small daughter and 80-year-old father riding in a buggy, Daniel had to proceed on foot, leading the horse through the wilderness of trees and underbrush. It was enough to discourage a prospective settler, but the brothers persuaded Daniel to stay and stake his claim near theirs on Parkers€™s Lake. (Daniel€™s; 120 acres on Section 28 included property that later became the site of the old Parker€™s Lake Church and its cemetery, where you can still see numerous Parker gravestones.) With the help of his brothers and other settlers from miles around, Daniel had his log cabin up in record time-only two days before his wife gave birth to €œthe first white boy born in Plymouth Township.€ Unfortunately, baby Forrest, named for the deep woods, was born prematurely. When he died, the sorrowing father took a short log, hollowed it out for a casket, and lined it with cloth brought from Maine. They buried the baby €œoutside the cabin window,€ after a service conducted by the baby€™s grandfather, James Parker, who had been a Methodist minister and circuit rider back East. The Reverend Parker, father of the five Parker sons and two daughters, died five years later at the age of 85 and was buried (for the lack of a cemetery) at a chosen spot in Daniels€™s field. Hoping to reclaim their mothers€™s body and place it beside that of her husband, the brothers went to look for her grave in St. Anthony. But even in 1860, the forest was so dense in what is now North Minneapolis;is that it hid the site, and the brothers searched in vain. There was a heavy woods around Parkers€™s Lake, too, which caused settlers to worry when they feared Indians were skulking nearby. Although none of the Parkers had ever been molested, there was always that dark cloud of anxiety. A favorite Indian story among family members concerns Daniels€™s wife, Hester, and her future sister-in-law, Sarah. The two women were sewing one afternoon, when a Chippewa warrior, in feathered headdress and hideous war paint, rushed into the cabin carrying a knife dripping with blood. He grasped Hester by her arm and pulled her toward the door. Hester grabbed desperately for Sarah, who was also dragged along, fearing the worst for both of them. The Indian led them outdoors to a freshly killed deer that had been skinned and dressed. By his gesture, Hester began to realize he meant the venison as a gift and that he wanted to know where he should put it for her. He seemed in great haste, yet he took time to move the carcass onto some clean shingles he placed on the floor of Hester€™s pantry Then he disappeared silently into the woods, never to be seen again. No sooner had the Chippewa gone than a party of Sioux warriors appeared, pursuing their enemy on galloping horses. They dismounted and searched the barn and farmyard. Then, on entering the cabin, they spied the pumpkin pies Hester had set to cool on the kitchen table. Without asking permission, they devoured the pies quickly, grunted approval and left, apparently satisfied that the enemy was not concealed on the premises. By the time Daniel arrived home, Hester and Sarah had recovered from their fright enough to laugh over the incident. €œno pies for supper tonight, Dan.€ Hester said jauntily. €œBut we€™ll have venison steak-all you can eat!.€ There was real cause for anxiety in the Lake Area when news came of the Sioux uprising the began near New Ulm and was spreading like wildfire. Settlers panicked, thinking the Indians would burst through the woods any minute to continue murdering, mutilating, looting and burning. Many families fled from Lake Minnetonka to St. Anthony or Fort Snelling. Others stayed to protect their homes and defend themselves as best they could€¦€¦€¦.The various Parker families had gathered at James Parker€™s home,preparing to leave for safer quarters, when Daniel and Hester realized they had forgotten to take clothing for the children. Hand in hand they walked back to their cabin in the dark woods, not talking and hardly daring to breathe for fear an Indian would hear them and pounce from behind a tree. But the rampaging Sioux were not as close as they feared. In fact, the nearest atrocities took place in€63 near, Howard Lake, nearly twenty miles from Minnetonka. And the following year, pioneer settlers rejoiced that the Indian trouble had been squelched. From HISTORY OF HENNEPIN COUNTY(1895) Rev. James Parker moved west to Kentucky(date not indicated), €œremaining there one year, and left on account of hostile Indians, removing to Cincinnati, Ohio where€¦..Rev James Parker was€¦engaged in shipbuilding. He remained there until 1836 when (the family) they returned to Maine.€ Rev Parker moved to Minnesota with other members of his family in 1855. Rev Parker was also appointed the first Justice of the Peace for Parkers Lake in1856. FTW cd #51 Tree 893 indicates possible First wife= Betty Vining and Deborah Small was wife # two€¦.

  •   Charlestown 1810-1850 of Ohio - Charlestown is thirty-six miles southeast of Cleveland and five miles east of Ravenna. It lies between two through railroads from east to west. The Erie passes through the northwest part of the township and the P. & W. the south part. The Mahoning River crosses it from west to east in the south part. The center road, leading from Warren to Ravenna, passes over three ridges. From these eminencies magnificent views are obtained of the surrounding country. It is a rural district, but characterized by the intelligence of its people. After 1810 new families were arriving each year, almost entirely from Massachusetts and Connecticut, a good class of citizens to found a new community. The different companies had their common experiences in their six weeks€™ journey over corduroy roads, through swamps and bridgeless streams, while each had special events to remember and relate to the grandchildren. €œPolly JAMES and Irena JAMES, with their husbands and five children, and Eunice VINING, who afterward married Daniel DAWLEY, of Ravenna, came to Charlestown in 1817. The journey was made in November. One of the men drove the ox team, while the other cut the roads which became so bad the women decided to walk. They would carry some of the children ahead, set them down, and go back for the others. When they came to a stream of water, they would take off their shoes and stockings and wade through. Irena JAMES and Eunice VINING walked the entire distance from Buffalo, N.Y., to Ravenna. They averaged about ten miles a day.€ A large company of these true, brave women worthy of mention are looking out of the past. The descendants of these pioneer women have reason to be proud of their achievements. The €œnew woman€ of today is the woman of early days, with her energies and abilities directed to new fields to cultivate, because the old fields of pioneer life have been subdued. May they prove worthy daughters of the grand fore-mothers of our country. Sophia BROWN MORRIS Chairman and Historian Charlestown Committee - Mrs. Leonard THOMPSON, Mrs. Fannie B. HALL, Mrs. Rosa WOLCOTT

      - THE LOST CHILD - 
      (Author - ??) (Contributed by Maurice Vining)
A sad event occurred of late       And there on high and rugged bluff
That every heartstring shocks.      What a blow to hearts it dwelt,
Tis little Wilfred Vining€™s fate     The first sad trophy of the search
Among the rugged rocks.       The baby€™s little belt.
You€™ll seek for sadder things in vain   With lines close drawn they hurried on
Than what I now relate.        For this was certain ground.
In chronicles of Eastern Maine      And in a score of minutes more
Of any day or date.       The little child was found.
€˜Twas Friday April Twenty-ninth   Age found only part of him
A day we all bewail       The crude material part.
That Wyman Vining left his home     Berefit of the light ot the glowing soul
To get his daily mail.        And the throb of pulsing heart.
His little son of four short years    They took him to his stricken home
Trudged by him blithe as may      He€™d sought with spirit brave.
Until they passed some men who clear   The pressed their kisses on his lips
Brush from the country way.     And laid him in the grave.
Being well acquainted with the men  But what he suffered, what he feared
Young Wilfred stopped to play.     No man may ever say
His father thinking it so well     Until we hear the trumpet call
Went on and let him stay.       On the great judgment day.
And when returning from the post    He wandered through the birchen wood,
Inquiring for his child      He wandered past the lake.
He found had started home alone     All cold and hungry and alone
Across the lonely wild.        O God, for pity€™s sake!
But when the father reached his home      Still on and on over cliff and crag
And did not find his son,         Though strength was falling fast
Great anguish rent the parents€™ hearts    The little hero met his fate
And the great search begun        And fought it to the last.
They searched the woods from Vining€™s pond  At last his little bleeding limbs
The rocky Cathance shore.         No longer bear his weight.
They searcher the woods and pastureland  He stumbles, falls and yields at last
And searched them o€™er and o€™er     To cruel pitiles fate.
The neighbors joined, the search went on   He wandered on till darkness fell
Till the sun had sank from sight,    Seeking for home in vain.
And then with lanterns flashing wide  They laid him down in a rocky dell
Went shouting through the night.   Never to rise again.
But that he€™d strayed beyond the pond   The young moon pale and slender
Was that none would believe.     Looked down upon the scene.
His little limbs were far to week    The stars they shown in splendor
But children€™s limbs deceive.     All nature was serene.
O what a tiny speck to find       He drew his cap down o€™er his eyes
In the mighty woods of Maine!      O mercy let us weep!
For six long day€™s A hundred men     In the darkness alone
Made search, but searched in vain.    While the cold winds moan
On the seventh day,         The baby fell asleep.
The sixth of May,         No line of anguish on his brow,
The search was carried beyond     No tear upon his cheek.
The little lake where the ledges break   He yielded up to Holy God
To the south of Vining pond.     His spirit fair and meek.
Where seamed and scarred were ledges bared Be comforted, O ye bereaved
By the sweep of the mighty flow     Through you were sorely tried
In its grinding roll from the frozen pole  Your little son is now with God.
In the ages long ago.         He stands by Jesus€™ side.
And there revealed a primal field      He died all pure and innocent.
Where rocks rent shivered and flung    He yielded up his soul.
Gave full attest to the fierce unrest       As pure and spotless as the snow
In the heart of the Earth when young.     That covers the friged soul.
Nineteen hundred years and ten
Have passed in ceaseless flow
Since Jesus gave his life for men
And left this world of woe.
And many years shall join the past
Ere we forget this child
For the town of Cooper€™s
Plunged in grief
For the baby lost in the wild.

The Night the Owl Screamed  by William Hatfield

The year was 1910. The little community of Cooper, nestled in the forested landscape among the hills, lakes, and streams of Washington County, Maine had just emerged from a long cold winter. Men had returned from the lumber camps and river drives and in a few weeks would begin to till the ground for the spring planting.

There were no paved roads, no modern conveniences such as electricity, indoor plumbing or running water. Water was carried from a hand-dug wall in a bucket, homes were heated with a wood stove or fireplace and cooking was done on a wood-burning kitchen range. Gardens were plowed with a team of horses and each homestead kept cows for milk, butter, and beef. Hunting, fishing, and trapping supplied food and helped subsidize the meager, income. Taxes were often paid by working on the town roads or supplying firewood for one of the three one room school houses.

The little town of Cooper was a close knit community. Schools were often made up of several families, usually related to one another. All eight grades shared a single classroom and were taught by one teacher. The curriculum consisted of reading, writing arithmetic, spelling, and penmanship. Discipline was handled by the teacher and if you got in trouble at school, you would be in trouble when you got home.

Little did anyone know that tragedy was about to strike such a blow to this community that would linger in the hearts and minds for years to come.

It all began in such an innocent manner on April 28th as Wyman Vining left his home to get the mail. Beside him trudged his little son Wilfred of four short years. Down the road, through the valley and up the big hill, they had walked this way many times before, but today things would be different. Several an from the community were clearing brush from the sides of the road. Mr. Vining stopped to pass the time of day with his neighbors. As he continued on to the post office, little Wilfred stayed to watch the men at work. When Wyman returned ho discovered his son had left and gone home alone. Wyman was shocked when he arrived home and the child was nowhere to be found.

A quick search found no sign of the child, neighbors were summoned and searched the area near the home without a trace. The search party grew in size. All night the search went on as men carrying kerosene lanterns scoured the landscape, calling the child€™s name. By morning the search party had swelled to over one hundred strong, as they swept the area between Cathance Lake and Vining Pond. None could believe a four year old could travel beyond this area, but Henry Keen was not so sure. (Henry€™s wife was a cousin to little Wilfred) Henry and his close friend Horace Creamer had set bear traps beyond the pond and they rushed to the area to spring those traps Lest the child should wander such a distance.

Beyond Vining Pond lay a barren area of ledges, boulders, wild blueberry bushes, and scattered trees. The second night of the search Mr. Keen returned to this place. The night was clear and cool, stars sparkled in their brightness, and voices of the searchers could be beard from beyond the pond. Henry would stand for periods of time and listen, hoping to hear the child€™s cry, then move some distance and listen again. The hooting of the great horned owl and the screech owl would break the silence. As the evening went on, more owls congregated in the area, more than Henry had ever heard before or ever again. There seemed to be an excitement among these wild birds. At one time he thought he heard the faint cry of the child at then the owls would screech and carry on and he could not he sure. Throughout the night he changed his post several timer but every so often the owls would put up such a ruckus that he could not hear the child.

On May 6th the seventh day of the search, the party began to go beyond the south end of the pond and into the barren landscape.  It was here that the first sign of little Wilfred was found as one of the searchers discovered the child€™s belt. The searchers closed their ranks nearly shoulder to shoulder and anxiously pressed on.  In a few minutes the body of the little child was found curled up in a fetal position under an overhanging ledge.

During the days and nights of the search, people kept their windows open, hoping they might hear the child. At one point, the authorities were concerned that Wilfred€™s mother did not show enough grief and were considering arresting her.

My grandfather, Henry Keen, often spoke of the tragedy and Harold vining, a brother to Wilfred, told me of his father€™s description of the place where the child was found. Harold said he asked his father on numerous occasions to take him to that location, but the haunting memories were too painful and the trip was never taken. My grandfather always believed the owls screamed because they could hear the child€™s crying and this made it impossible for the searchers to locate him. Henry had been within a few hundred yards of where the child was found.

Mary Vining €œBelle of Delaware€ Because of her renowned beauty, wit and charm, Mary Vining was famous near and far as the €œBelle of Delaware€ during the Revolutionary era. When Thomas Jefferson visited French Queen Marie Antoinette, one of the first questions she asked him was whether Miss Vining of Delaware was really as lovely as she was said to be.As a child, Mary lived in a mansion facing Dover€™s Green, where the Supreme Court building now stands. Her father, Chief Justice Vining, died when Mary was 14, leaving her and her brother John (nicknamed €œthe Pet of Delaware€ and later a member of Congress and the U.S. Senate) a very substantial fortune. Mary Vining was said to have been well educated, speaking both English and impeccable French, and her voice was €œas sweet as music.€ During the Revolution she won the admiration not only of Lafayette and many on Washington€™s staff, but also of General Howe€™s British officers quartered in Philadelphia in the winter of 1777, where Mary spent much of her time. Mary Vining. A written offer of marriage of Caesar Rodney is existence. (Amer. Hist. Register, July 1895, No. II, p. 1190.) Ultimately it was €œMad Anthony Wayne,€ one of Washington€™s closest and most trusted advisers, who would win Mary€™s heart. After Wayne€™s invalid wife had died, and Mary Vining was nearly 40, she became engaged to the General, who presented her with a tea set-still preserved at the Ridgely House in Dover-to commemorate the occasion. The wedding date was set for January, when General Wayne would return from a mission to make peace with the Maumee Indians. Tragically, on New Year€™s Day, Mary received word that her fiancé had died of appendicitis at Presque Isle on Lake Erie. She immediately went into mourning, and until her death wore black dress and a widow€™s cap. A friend in 1797 wrote of her romance with Wayne: €œThat he was brave is undoubted, but such a weather-beaten vulgar affected old soldier I should have thought would not have suited her refinement.€ Her brother having squandered her immense fortune, Mary Vining was obliged to sell her coach and horses, and to dismiss her staff of servants. In 1821 she died in a little cottage called €œThe Willows,€ where the DuPont Building now stands in Wilmington, and is buried in an unmarked grave at Old Swedes Church.(Photo: Senator John Middleton Vining 1758-1802) RV5114 - Senator John Middleton Vining, II - b12/23/1758 Dover,Kent,DE - d2/2/1802 Dover,Kent,DE - Burial: Christ Church Cem. of Dover - (Genealogical Dictionary of New England Settlers,v4,p374) - m11/24/1790 NY,NY,NY Trinty Church Parish Anna Marie/Maria Seton (daughter of William Seton, Esq.) bDover,Kent,DE (FamilySearch) of NY state.

(The Twentieth Century Biographical Dictionary of Notable Americans: Volume XV Vinton, Alexander Hamilton) On August 25, the Senate received seventeen House-passed amendments. By combining separate amendments, the Senate consolidated these to twelve. For instance, they combined the idea of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press into a single amendment, which we now honor as the First Amendment. After the Senate returned the amendments with changes, the House called for a conference committee and appointed James Madison, Roger Sherman, and John Vining as its conferees. The Senate appointed Oliver Ellsworth, Charles Carroll, and William Paterson; thus, four of the six conferees had been delegates to the Constitutional Convention. The Senate conferees reported back on September 24, and the following day the Senate voted to send the twelve amendments to the states. The states adopted ten of these; the two which were rejected would have fixed the size of the House of Representatives and prevented any congressional salary increase from taking place during the Congress in which it was passed.

(Prominent American Descendants)Second Amendment Series: (Part of Document) Down to the Last Second (Amendment) Tim Winward, February 23, 2000 €” Participants in the various debates on firearms, crime, and constitutional law may have noticed that not all versions of the Second Amendment being quoted by the antagonists are the same. The two main transcriptions differ in punctuation- specifically, in the number of commas used to separate those twenty-seven words. But which is the correct one? The answer to this question must be found in official records from the early days of the republic. Therefore, a look into the progression of this declaratory and restrictive clause from its inception to its final form is in order. Before beginning, one must note that common nouns, like €œstate€ and €œpeople,€ were often capitalized in official and unofficial documents of the era. Also, the letter €œf€ was at times used in place of the letter €œs€ in both print and manuscript. For example, €œCongress€ is sometimes spelled as €œCongrefs,€ as is the case in the parchment copy of the Bill of Rights displayed by the National Archives. The quotations listed here are accurate. With the exception of the omission of quotations marks, versions of what is now known as the Second Amendment in black boldface appear with the exact spelling, capitalization, and punctuation as the cited originals. During ratification debates on the Constitution in the state conventions, several states proposed amendments to that charter. Anti-Federalist opposition to ratification was particularly strong in the key states of New York and Virginia, and one of their main grievances w as that the Constitution lacked a declaration of rights. During the ratification process, Federalist James Madison became a champion of such a declaration, and so it fell to him, as a member of the 1st Congress, to write one. On June 8, 1789, Madison introduced his declaration of rights on the floor of the House. One of its articles read: The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country: but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person. On July 21, John Vining of Delaware was appointed to chair a select committee of eleven to review, and make a report on, the subject of amendments to the Constitution. Each committeeman represented one of the eleven states (Rhode Island and North Carolina had not ratified the Constitution at that time), with James Madison representing Virginia. Unfortunately, no record of the committee€™s proceedings is known to exist. Seven days later, Vining duly issued the report, one of the amendments reading: A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, being the best security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringe d, but no person religiously scrupulous shall be compelled to bear arms.·   RV51141 - John Seton Vining b11/21/1791 - (The Vining Family by Dorothea Vining Barnes) Christened 12/4/1791 Trinity Church Parish,NY,NY,NY (FamilySearch)   Seton, Samuel Waddington, Edward Augustus Seton, Barbara Cecilia Seton, Anna Maria Seton, William Seton, Richard Bayley Seton, Catharine Charlton Seton, Rebecca Seton, John Seton Vining, William Henry Vining, Benjamin Checo(?)(Chloe?)
