      1860 Pulaski Co., Indiana census:
      Beaver township, P.O. Pulaski, pg. 1074, fam #967 / dwell #967
      Thomas B. Vint, 49, Farmer, VA

      On page 632 History of White and Pulaski County Indiana, there is an article about Settlers in Beaver Township, Pulaski County.
      In 1840, William and Nicholas White removed from Ohio to the township and
      began for themselves the experience of the new country. This same year,
      Jacob Huffman came into the township from Ohio and purchased the place that
      Jesse Coppack had begun to improved. Among the list of early settlers may
      also be mentioned the names of THOMAS VINT, JOHN VINT, and Mr. Van Schyke
      who begun settlement in the township at a very remote day in its history. [Trudy Johnson email, johnsn@carlnet.org]

      In the Clark/Layman Burial Ground in White co, north of Buffalo, Indiana, in the middle of the Lucas family (Catherine Gillaspie Lucas), is this (transcription):
      Rosana Vint b. d. 12/29/1862 9y
      -- Rosanna should've been about 62; maybe it says 59?

      From another book of Clark's Cem records:
      #95-VINT,Rosanna died Dec 29,1862
      -- note no age is given; I wonder what the stone really says?
