I have a copy of The Vining Family by Dorothea Vining Barnes. Noah Vining's marriage to "Mary L. Stoddard" is reported on pages 56 and 65, but in neither place is Mary's birth date given. Also, there are almost no sources cited for any of the information in the book. Even if they were, we would still have to track down those sources to determine if the information was extracted correctly. For that reason (and others), I am developing a web page (http://www.vfthomas.com/Viningfamilies.htm) where I will report not only the sources but will post scans of the documents, gravestones, etc. This web page is in its infancy, but I hope people will contribute scanned images so we all don't have to reinvent the wheel. Good luck with Mary's birth date research.
