Signature of Richard Walton Gwin on the  9 March 1857 receipt of his portion of the inheritance on the document--dated
"Tuesday 3rd April AD 1855"--probating the will at the death of his mother, Mary Canterbury Gwin. Evidently
Richard lived far enough away that he could not attend the probate settlement, waiting almost two years for his portion.

Born, respectively, in Tennessee and Kentucky, Richard Walton Gwin and Nancy Elizabeth (nee Watkins) Gwin also lived in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas. They lived their last years in southeast Kansas on their farm in the Sycamore Valley between Neodesha (pronounced /nee-OH-deh-SHAY/) and Independence.  The town of Sycamore lies ten miles south of Neodesha in Montgomery County.  They are buried in the Neodesha City Cemetery. Neodesha is in south Wilson Co., 23 miles due north of the seat of Montgomery Co, Independence.


This picture was identified in my mother's album as
Richard Gwin and Nancy Watkins
--- Cordelia Conner "Cordi" Fischer ---

To find their graves, ask anyone in town how to get to the cemetery.  Upon arriving, find this thirty-foot- high statue of a Union soldier facing north (left photo). A short road leads north from the statue and tees into another going east and west (center photo). Just across this second road are the Richard Gwin plot and the Silas Gwin plot. Down the second road (to the east) is a third plot, that of Richard's grandson, Albert Wells.



Albert's family plot is marked with a huge block of granite with the name WELLS as the only inscription. Smaller stones in front and beside it mark the five individual graves there.  The large stone is visible from the statue and appears (in the right photo) to be just in front of the cannon's muzzle, though it is actually a hundred yards ENE of it.

Richard's and Nancy's plot (photo, right) contains markers for the following five graves:

1-2. Their own monument (see photos, far right)
3. Daughter-in-law Mary Elizabeth Gwin, w/o Richard W. Gwin, Jr.;
4. Grandson Earl W. Gwin, s/o Richard Jr. and Mary; and
5. Son-in-law Ezra T. Wells, h/o Eliza Louisa Gwin;

more individual photos appear at those links.  Visible in the distance is the large white marker of the Albert Wells family plot

[John M. Gwin Note: In July 2006, Cousin Cordelia Fisher sent me photocopies of the news item and obituaries I have transcribed here in this purple, all of which appeared in the Neodesha Register, Neodesha, Kansas. The last item was dated Friday, July 10, 1885. An unrelated legal notice on the same page as the R. W. Gwin obituary was dated Neodesha, Kan., Jan. 15, 1885. See more from Cordelia below.]
Mrs. E. T. Wells has been called twice of late to the bedside of her aged father, R. W. Gwin, living near Independence, who is not expected to live.  He is 82 years of age. [Cordelia Fischer Note: This is Eliza T. Gwin, wife of Ezra T. Wells.]

R. W. Gwinn (sic), father of Mrs. E. T. Wells, was buried in the Neodesha cemetery last Friday.  He was a resident of Sycamore Valley and was aged 82 years. He had been a pioneer in the settlement of four territories, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas, and was the father of fifteen children, fourteen of whom are living; his wife, whom he had lived with 63 years, is still living but was too much prostrated by the death of her companion to be able to attend the burial. The old pioneers are passing away and will soon live only in the memories of their children.

E. T. Wells received on last Monday a dispatch from Kansas City telling of the death of his motherinlaw, Mrs. Nancy Gwinn (sic), in that city. Mrs. Wells, who has been absent for some time, was with her mother at the time of her death. It has been but a short time since we chronicled the death of Mr. Gwinn (sic), husband of the deceased. May peace and salvation be there.

from the Friday, July 10, 1885 Neodesha Register
[John M. Gwin Note: Cordelia also sent me a photocopy of a typed transcription (of what appears to me to be page 82) of a "Marriage Register, cont." which is labeled in someone's hand, "Harrison Co., IN, Marriages, 1817-32". I have transcribed here the last entry on this page.]
Richard W. Gwin and
Nancy Watkins April 12, 1824, Consent of father
According to license issued the 12th day of April 1824 I joined together in the holy state of matrimony on the 13th day of the month my son Richard Gwinn and Nancy Watkins the daughter of John Watkins. Given under my hand this 14th day of May 1824. Isom Gwinn M. G.
[John M. Gwin Note: Cordelia also sent me a photocopy of a Mar. 5, 1992, typed letter sent to her from a Terry Harper of the Loran Fawcett Funeral Home, 704 Indiana, Neodesha, Kansas 66757, the text of which I transcribe here.]

Ms. Cordelia Fischer

Tortuga, Calif. 92687

Dear Ms. Fischer:

The information I obtained from cemetery records is as follows:
 

R. W. Gwin, Sr.
Age: 80-11-6
Died: 1/7/1885
Nancy Gwin (Wife of R. W.)
Age: 78-3-21
Died: 7/6/1885
Mary E. Gwin
Born: 1848
Died: 1931
Earl Gwin:
Age: 1 yr., 6 mo.
Died: 1/15/1881
(Son of Mary)

These people were buried on the north half of a lot that had a large, family monument in the middle of the lot. The name on the stone was Wells.
An E. T. Wells was buried there. (10/17/1883 - 7/3/1904) The lot was bordered by a concrete bordering with the name of Gwin on it. I don't know if the Wells were related.

Sincerely,
Terry Harper

Martha--"Marthy"--is the oldest child still at home in Sep of 1850. She will marry a neighbor, William Snyder, who is living in residence 622.
The four oldest children have each married and/or are living elsewhere:

1. Mary and Gideon Bear are living next door (res. 662);
2. William is still single and unaccounted-for, but his soon-to-be bride, Catherine Bush, is living with her parents four doors away (res. 659);
3. Jane and Jehu Haigler are unaccounted-for but probably nearby; and
4. Sarah and Enoch Haigler are three doors from them (res. 660).
(Res. 661 is the home of William and Elizabeth Haigler, in their late 60's, who are probably Enoch's and Jehu's parents.)

Richard W. Gwin
self 76 ca. 1804 TN VA VA
This data was found on the 1880 Census Online. Richard's POB almost has to be on the 249-acre farm of his father, Isom Gwin, in Crowson's Cove, Sevier Co., TN. This also verifies that his parents, Isom Gwin and Mary Canterbury Gwin, were born in Virginia.

Nancy Gwin
wife 73 ca. 1807 KY MD MD My book on Harrison County, Indiana marriages shows the following: 4/12/1824? Richard W. Gwinn, c. of f. Isom Gwinn and Nancy Watkins, f. John Watkins by Isom Gwinn. (Richard W. Gwinn and Nancy Watkins were married in Harrison Co., IN, 12 April 1824; Isom Gwinn gave consent for his son to marry; consent of John Watkins, father of Nancy, was given by Isom Gwinn.) This data was found on the 1880 Census Online. Cousin Cordelia reports that Richard and Nancy were married by his father, Isom Gwin, a "Minister of the Gospel."

Martha--"Marthy"--is the oldest child still at home in Sep of 1850. She will marry a neighbor, William Snyder, who is living in residence 622.
The four oldest children have each married and/or are living elsewhere:

1. Mary and Gideon Bear are living next door (res. 662);
2. William is still single and unaccounted-for, but his soon-to-be bride, Catherine Bush, is living with her parents four doors away (res. 659);
3. Jane and Jehu Haigler are unaccounted-for but probably nearby; and
4. Sarah and Enoch Haigler are three doors from them (res. 660).
(Res. 661 is the home of William and Elizabeth Haigler, in their late 60's, who are probably Enoch's and Jehu's parents.)

Very interesting! When Mary E. Gwin dies in 1931, 31 years from now, her obituary will list two surviving daughters: Mrs. Cora Scott of Jefferson and Mrs. Frank Wagner of Dearing! Evidently Cyrus Hay, listed here (one line above) as an invalid, will die from his condition, and this man NINE YEARS HER JUNIOR will take his place.

I once believed this to be the daughter of Richard W. Gwin, Jr., and Mary E. Gwin.  This is the only Cora Scott I'd found whose data fit MOST of our Cora's description. I decided keep looking, however, especially since her father's POB is inconsistent with Richard's claim to have been b. in Indiana; she reports his POB as IL.  Further, she lists her own age as 29, and our Cora would only be 27 (and what woman would lie about her age to make herself OLDER instead of younger?

OHO! Here is some welcome input from a reader who says that this is indeed NOT our Cora!  Listed in my Ancestry.com messages as SSR1961 on Mar 25 at 8:28 PM GMT, she states, "The Cora Gwin you have listed in Bourbon Co., KS, as being married to William E. Scott is actually the daughter of Elias Gwin and Sarah Rhoda Stroud.  I'll be happy to send you obits of this family.  They are buried in Evergreen Cem. in Fort Scott, Bourbon Co., KS.  Sandy Rylander"  Thanks for clearing this up, Sandy!  :-)

One would think that the deceased child of Richard and Mary must have been Ethel, since she is not in the picture here. But this child was already deceased in 1900 when Ethel was there. (We now know that the deceased child is Earl W. Gwin--see outline above.) Ethel must still be alive, then, (indeed, she is, as later census records attest) so perhaps grandson Roy G. is only there for a visit or perhaps to help his grandpa on the farm.

Butchers and Gwin Posted on: 10 Mar 2007, by joytou
  Surnames > Butcher
Looking for information on Mary Butcher Gwin b. abt 1850 married to Martin Gwin in Kansas. Children Dora Gwin and Leonadus P. Gwin. Mary's father was B. Butcher from Mo. moved to Franklin Co, Kansas abt 1865. Mary and Martin are believed to be in Fulton Co. Ark by 1880. Any help on this line would be appreciated.
Surnames: Butcher - Gwin


William Benton and Martin V. B. Guinn/Gwin/ etc.  New

PeggyGuinnBowen      Posted: 14 Jun 2006
Classification: Query
Is anybody connected with William Benton Guinn and Martin Van Buren Guinn? They were both seven years old, apparently twins, on the 1850 census in Platte Co. MO. I can't find them after that. I'm trying to determine if this Martin was my ancestor.

BINGO! On a hunch that Caroline, last seen at age 16 living at home, would be married and living near her parents, I did an Ancestry.com search of the 1870 census of Stanton/Miami/Kansas for any female by the first name of Caroline. There were only three, and this one is
(1) exactly ten years older than our Caroline was in 1860,
(2) b. in Iowa, and
(3) living 3 doors from her parents and 2 from her brother! Further,
(4) in 1880 she gives her parents' POB as TN and KY, respectively!
Maybe this doesn't prove she's our Caroline, but I am personally convinced this is she.

I'm more and more convinced that this M. V. is our Martin V. Gwin, son of Richard W. and Nancy Gwin.  Even though his age is 2-3 years off, and the places of birth of his parents are unfortunately left blank, Barton Co., MO, is right across the state line from Crawford Co., KS--fairly near Richard W.'s farm. Most convincing, however, is our finding of a widow, Isabelle Thornburgh, 27, and her son Thomas, 7, living right here in Barton Co., MO!
Our Martin V. won't marry Isabelle, his second wife, for some two more years, so this "Parley" (Paralee?) could be a daughter by Mary Butcher, his first wife, once thought to be deceased, now known to be living in Arkansas City, Kansas, in Cowley Co., some 100+ miles to the west of Crawford Co. However, Parley's POB is listed as Arkansas, and her father's POB is listed as Iowa--consistent with M. V. being her father, but meaning that she would've been born in Arkansas, then moved to Missouri.

If this is a daughter, and she looks to be (but the "Relation to HoH" column is unfortunately blank), the whole family would've been living in Arkansas when she was born. When the family split up, she and Martin could have gone one way (to Barton Co., MO) while Mary went the other (to  Cowley Co., KS) with Dora and Effie. Where Leonadus went is anyone's guess, but since he is with neither in 1880, he is likely deceased.
Could Parley's name be Paralee?
How many children did Martin have? So far, we have Dora, Leonodus, Parley, and Effie.

The POB of his parents pretty much nails this down, as far as I'm concerned, as the son of Richard W. Gwin. Their "Years of Marriage" being 19, that sets their marriage at ca. 1881. The record of his age has been written over several times and is not legible, but based on the 1910 and 1920 censuses, it must be 52 or 53.

Everything matches up with his marriage certificate (above) to prove that this is the former husband of Effie Gwin (Mrs. Joseph Fallihee), with the possible exception of his number of marriages.  One can track his migration through the first marriage certificate (above) and the places of birth of his children here: Minnesota, Washington, Oregon, and California.

This Nellie (nee unk.) is obviously the second wife of Joseph, the first being Effie Gwin, of course. Effie would never have told the enumerator that she and her parents were from Pennsylvania.

I believe this Joseph and his sister Katherine to be children of Joseph and NELLIE and ANNIE to be their half-sister, daughter of Joseph and EFFIE (see my speculation below).

CA/MN/PA
I believe this to be Anna "Annie" Gladys Fallihee who will marry Carl Elwood Fryer and become Daniel Nietz's great-grandmother. However, there are some inaccuracies reported here. Either the enumerator incorrectly assumed that Annie is Nellie's child or Nellie lied outright to him, for Annie is NOT her child and is indeed the child of Joseph by his first wife, Effie Gwin, as proven by her presence in the 1900 census. Further, her age reported here is incorrect, as onre can see when comparing her age in 1900 to hers in 1910.

Here's what I SPECULATE happened:


The enumerator arrived at the Fallihee home during the daytime hours when Joseph was at work and the older kids were at school. Further, he was taking notes in a notebook, planning to transcribe them into the official census report that evening. Nellie gave him the information as accurately as she could, but the enumerator failed to ask if any of the children were by a former marriage. Later, when he was trying to transcribe his notes, he realized that Annie's age could not be 12 if Joseph and Nellie had only been married 7 years, so he assumed her age to be two and recorded it so, further listing Annie's mother's POB as PA.

Isabell is 67 here, which means that she would've been about 38 or 39 when she married Martin in about 1881 or 1882. It is very possible, then, that she may have have a child or children by him. It is perhaps more probable that she may have had at least one child, Thomas, by a previous marriage (see below).

It now appears that the second of the above scenarios is correct. In the 8 Jun 1880 census of Ozark Township, Barton Co., MO, I found the widow Isabelle Thornburgh, 27, and her son Thomas, 7, living as housekeeper and boarder, respectively, in the home of a widower with three small children. I'm betting this grandson is the son of this Thomas and therefore a "step-grandson" of Martin.

This must be Effie Gwin, d/o Martin V. Gwin and Mary C. Butcher.  I assume now that Effie is a nickname for Ellen. She is my second cousin thrice removed. HOWEVER, if this Ellen is our Effie, she certainly was not born in Pennsylvania, nor were her parents born in Wisconsin! THEREFORE, for now, we must assume that (1) either this Ellen is a second wife and that Effie was the first, or (2) this is the wrong family.

Mrs. Gwin was the wife of S. W. Gwin, who is a brother of Mrs. E. T. Wells [i.e., Eliza Gwin Lane Wells] of this city, and the funeral occurred from her home Monday at 1 p.m., conducted by Dr. T. B. Woodard. Interment was made in Neodesha cemetery. Deceased was 44 years old on the day of her burial and leaves four children [Nellie, Etta, Ona, and Floyd, all listed below] .

from the Wilson County Sun, Neodesha, Kansas, on Friday, 18 Aug 1899 - p. 5, col. 4

A. L. Wells was called to Independence Saturday night by a telegram announcing the serious illness of his aunt, Mrs. S. W. Gwin, of near Radical City, who was there being treated for dropsy. She died Sunday morning at 9 o'clock and the body was brought here Sunday night, and after services at the residence of E. T. Wells at 11 a.m. Monday conducted by Rev. Dr. Woodard, was buried in the City cemetery. The husband of the deceased is a brother of Mrs. E. T. Wells.

Mr. and Mrs. Gwin lived near Benedict until a few years ago when they sold their farm there and moved onto the Gwin estate two miles north of Radical City.  Mrs. Gwin was 44 years old on the day of her death. [Sic--should be day of her burial.] Her maiden name was Orendorff.  Mrs. R. E. Orendorff, mother of the deceased; Guy Orendorff, her brother; Lee Prunty; Mrs. B. F. Carter; Lon Prunty; Rafe Prunty; and Mrs. F. H. Burnett, all of Benedict, attended the funeral. R. W. Gwin and wife [parents-in-law of the deceased] , of Jefferson, Montgomery county, were also here to attend the funeral.

[John M. Gwin Note:   In April 2010 we heard from Roger Engelken of Colorado, who sent the following information on John Engelken.]

"John Engelken was born Johann Engelken on February 21, 1868, in Apensen, Germany, to Friedrich Engelken and Catharina Boesch.  John immigrated with his uncle and aunt (my g-g-grandparents, Peter Engelken and Margareta Oelers) and their children, leaving Hamburg on January 28, 1885, settling in Montgomery Co., KS, in 1887.  The Marie Engelken and Elsie Engelken you make note of in the 1920 Census are two daughters of Hinrich Engelken, my great-grandfather and the son of Peter and Margaret Engelken listed above.  Their ages are correct.  All of the Engelkens in Montgomery Co., KS, are related and therefore related to me.  Our family has always wondered what happened to John Engelken and family.  My g-grandfather left there in 1920 with his family for Oklahoma, though two sisters and a brother stayed there, with another sister moving to Ontario and the other sister to California.  I've narrowed John's death to between 1925 and 1930, as he is in the state census of 1925, but only his widow is listed on the 1930 census.  We've never figured out the names of their children, they are so vastly different than any other in the family.  Let me know if you need or want any other information."

[John M. Gwin Note: In a search of the entire January 1920 Census of Independence, Montgomery Co., KS, two more Englekens were found working as servants in the homes of others. As there are no other Engleken families in town, I at first suspected that these two were Fairy T. and Lois F. themselves, whom I thought may have given false ages to the census taker.  But in April 2010 we heard from Roger Engleken that such is not the case; these are the daughters of Hinrich Engelken, Roger's gg-grandfather and first cousins once removed to Fairy and Lois.

Anderson Co. is one of the original counties of Kansas. On 24 May 1854 Kansas officially became a territory and was opened to settlement. Anderson Co. was formally organized on 7 Jan 1856, and Garnett became the county seat on 5 Apr 1859. Greeley, the first town in Anderson Co. and shown here in the NE corner of the county, was surveyed and laid out in April of 1857.  Anderson Co. is bordered by Franklin Co. on the north, Allen Co. to the south, Coffey Co. to the west, and Linn Co. to the east.

Portrait and Biographical Album
of
Washington County, Iowa
published in
1887
and transcribed to a Rootsweb page at
http://freepages.books.rootsweb.com/~cooverfamily/album_77.html#bush

ABSALOM BUSH, retired farmer, resides at Kalona. He was born in Fayette County, Ohio, Feb. 8, 1813, and is the son of Leonard and Catherine (Powers) Bush. His father was born in Pendleton County, Va., of German ancestry. He was a farmer and a natural mechanic, and was also a carpenter, manufacturing looms and spinning-wheels, and various other household articles. He was a master in the use of tools, and could make anything that he was requested to, and no man could do finer work. He was married in Virginia to Miss Catherine Powers, who was his companion and helpmeet until death. She was born in Hardy County, Va., and was the daughter of a Dunkard minister. Her family were also of German origin.

The family, consisting of the parents and three children, removed to Ross County, Ohio, on the north fork of the Paint River, where they staid [stayed] two years, and then removed to the farm in Fayette County. This farm was a wild, umimproved place in a wilderness. Their log house was built

page 458 

without a floor, and after the family were moved the first work of Mr. Bush was to grub the stubs and roots out of the room, and to level off a floor. He and his wife improved the farm and reared a family of eleven children. Mr. Bush died at the age of seventy years, his wife surviving him and dying at the age of seventy-four.

Our subject, Absalom Bush, was reared on a farm and became an expert at tools under the instruction of his father. He was married, Oct. 7, 1832, to Violet, daughter of Levi and Violet (Figgins) Arnold. Mrs. Bush was born in Kentucky, but came to Ohio when very young. She was reared in Fayette County. Mr. and Mrs. Bush are the parents of twelve children, five boys and seven girls, three of whom died in childhood. The others are: Catherine, the wife of William Gwinn (sic), now residing in Keota, Iowa, and the mother of six children, three boys and three girls; Darius, next of birth, was a soldier of the late war, enlisting in Co. H, 7th Vol. Inf., July 11, 1861, on the second call for troops; he was killed in the first battle (Belmont) Grant fought, Nov. 14, 1861. His younger brother, Cyrus, was severely wounded in the same battle, by a gunshot wound in the shoulder. Mr. Bush went to Belmont and brought home his wounded son. His other son was then reported missing, but the father did not know the facts of his death until eight months later, when he learned from a returned prisoner that Darius was cut down by a rebel Colonel, his head being nearly severed from his body. The Union soldiers, seeing the act, shot the Colonel dead in his tracks. A still younger son, D. Ezra, was also a soldier, and was twice wounded, the last time severely (see sketch of Daniel Ezra Bush, below**.) The next youngest child was Elizabeth, who died at the age of eighteen years; Sarah was the wife of E. S. Marsh, and died July 25, 1887, leaving six children, four girls and two boys; Cyrus married Alice Brown, and has six children, three boys and three girls, and resides in English River Township; D. Ezra married Mary Coombs, and has four children, one girl and three boys, and also resides in English River Township; Mary, the wife of John P. Coffman, of the Baptist Church of Albion, Iowa, has six children, four girls and two boys; Leonard, a farmer of Cedar Township, this county, is married to Margaret Strabling, and has four sons and one daughter. The three who died in childhood were Anderson, aged eleven years, Louisa and Huldah. The last named was the youngest child.

Mr. Bush came to Washington County with his family in October, 1846. He bought the farm now owned by his son D. Ezra, on section 24, and continued farming until 1862, and then moved to the village of Kalona, where he has since resided. He has not been a seeker after office, but has served as Township Trustee, and in minor positions. In politics he was a Whig, and a life-long Abolitionist, and worked earnestly for the restriction of slavery. He became a member of the Republican party at its formation, and has been a stanch supporter of its principles ever since. Mr. Bush and wife and several of their children, are members of the Christian Church. They have now forty grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Mr. Bush is a man of sincere humane sentiments, has always been a champion of the weak and oppressed, and a fearless denouncer of tyranny and wrong. His patriotism was unbounded, and the sacrifice made by him in the loss of one son and the wounding of two others, attested his sincerity. He is a man of remarkable temperate habits; for forty years he has drunk no intoxicating liquors nor taken a dose of medicine.
 

**DANIEL EZRA BUSH is a farmer residing on section 24, township 77, range 7, English River Township, where he owns 247 acres of fine land, under a hight state of cultivation. He is a native of Tazewell County, Ohio, born Jan. 13, 1843, and is the son of Absalom and Violet (Arnold) Bush, the former a native of Fayette County, Ohio, and the latter of Kentucky, but who lived in Fayette County from childhood. The family were originally from Virginia.

When Daniel was but four years of age the family moved from Ohio to Washington County, Iowa, and located upon the farm now owned and occupied by him. Here he was reared, and received his education in the public schools. English River Township, at that time, was but thinly settled, and the wild land must be converted into farms, and in making the change every member of the family must do his part. In the work of the farm, supplemented by an attendance upon the public schools, young Daniel was engaged until August, 1862, when he enrolled his name as a member of Co. F, 30th Iowa Vol. Inf., and was appointed Corporal. As such he went into the field, and was with the regiment in the operations against Vicksburg, in the fall of 1862, and then with Sherman in in the battle of Haines' Bluff, on the Yazoo River, and at Arkansas Post. The regiment next participated in the siege of Vicksburg, and in one of the charges made upon the rebel works Mr. Bush received a gunshot wound in the right hand. In the Chattanooga campaign the regiment participated, and, under Hooker, it was engaged in the battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. It was also in the battle of Resaca, and in various engagements in the Atlanta campaign. In all these battles and campaigns Mr. Bush was with his regiment, and in the battle of Jonesboro, Sept. 1, 1864, he was severely wounded in the right breast and shoulder, causing the dislocation of the arm at the shoulder, and the removal of four inches of bone of the arm. For months he lay in hospital, and by reason of the serious nature of his wounds, incapacitating him from further active service in the field, he received an honorable discharge and was mustered out Jan. 9, 1865.

Returning to his home in English River Township, for two years his life was held by a delicate thread. His strength then began slowly to return, and as he was able he resumed his work upon the farm, but it was not until fourteen years later that the ball was removed. The years of suffering that he endured was enough to break down many a less rugged man, but he bore the pain uncomplainingly, realizing that it was necessary that some sacrifice should be made that our country should be saved, the Union restored.

On the 1st day of September, 1875, Mr. Bush was united in marriage, in Jackson Township, Washington County, with Miss Mary Coombs, a native of Indiana, and daughter of W. A. and Mahal (Davis) Coombs. Four children have been born unto them: Daisy L., born in Ottumwa, Iowa, Dec. 11, 1877; Leroy E., born in Jackson Township, March 23, 1879; Carl A. born May 16, 1881; Louis Ellsworth, May 26, 1886.

Mr. Bush and family attend the Christian Church. Politically he is a Republican, with strong prohibition sentiments. A brave soldier and a patriotic man in war and peace, he is truly a representative citizen, not only of the township in which he lives, but of the county as well. As such he is respected by all. The farm upon which he lives is well cultivated and shows evidence of the worth and ability of its owner.

Say! I'm not sure who this is, but I'm pretty sure that's some version of the Medal of Honor he's wearing!  And is this a wedding photo? Look at her flowers...

For comparison purposes, here is a copy of a U.S. Medal of Honor

 

  From the sheet at the end of this page, this is the family of Thomas Richard Freeman, b. 4 Oct 1805 in KY (seated, rt.); son William Beck Freeman (and husband-to-be of Anna Bear Gwin) is seated, center, above the arrow.
According to the notes that accompanied this picture, Thomas was a minister, farmer, Mason, and veteran of the 1848 war with Mexico (USA Cavalry, 20th Illinois); m. 58 years to Edith (Cobb) Willard (seated, left--b. 1808, Genev, IL); d. and bd. in Pana, IL; 4 sons, 2 dau;
This was in Mother's album as Richard Gwin and Nancy Watkins

"Richard Gwin"

Because of the pencilled inscription, "Richard Guinn", below the photo in the album (visible at left) this was earlier thought to be 24.14 above, Richard W. Gwin, Jr.; however, the family photo sent by Cousin Sallie Harper in Jan 2012 confirms that this is none other than Ezra T. Wells, husband of 24.08 Eliza Louise Gwin Lane Wells.
W. H. Martin

It is taken in Independence, KS, which is where the Wells spent many years, so I agreed that these
were most likely Ezra and Eliza Wells.  Could she have been a younger Eliza and he be her first husband,
Henry Lane? 

And now that we have Teresa Perry's photo of Henry Lane, we know this is definitely not he.

So below are all the siblings.  I've used the "strikethrough" and "indent" options to eliminate (1) all
brothers and (2) all sisters for whom we have photos, reducing the remaining possibilities to these six
sisters highlighted in red:

24.01--Mary Gwin, m. Gideon Bear 
24.02--Elizabeth Gwin, d. 1826; m. never
24.03--William Watkins Gwin, m. Catherine Bush
24.04--Jane Gwin, m. Jehu William Haigler
24.05--Sarah Gwin, m. Enoch Haigler
24.06--Martha Gwin, m. William W. Snyder
24.07--John H. Gwin, m. Mary Jane Thompson
24.08--Eliza Louisa Gwin, m1. Henry Lane, m2. Ezra T. Wells
24.09--Nancy Gwin, d. 1843; m. never
24.10--Elizabeth Gwin, m1. Moses Adams; m2. William S. Bartholomew
24.11--Marguerette Gwin, m1. Ephraim Moore; m2. John Dillon; m3. Dr. Benjamin F. Parker
24.12--Caroline Chamberlain Gwin, m. John H. Dunn
24.13--Anna Bear Gwin, m. William Beck Freeman
24.14--Richard W. Gwin, (Jr.?), m. Mary E. Thompson
24.15--Martin Van Buren Gwin, m1. Mary C. Butcher; m2. Isabella (nee unk.)
24.16--Silas Walton Gwin, m. Cora A. (nee unk.)

AHA!  From my Sarah Ann Gwin (Mrs. Enoch Haigler) page comes this photo of five generations of
Haiglers.  Cousin Barbara Ward saw it in the Grenola Elevator Museum in Grenola, Kansas, and later
I saw it there, too.  It was donated to the museum by Cousin Jeff Stiles (son of Cousin Fred, brother
of Cousin Minnie, and uncle of Cousin Haldean).  We know the lady on the left is 24.05--Cousin Sarah
Gwin Haigler
.  Compare this photo of her to the one above.  Does it look like they are the same
person?  What do you think?  :-)  Remember, this photo is NOT in Cousin Cordi Fischer's collection--I've just added it here so you can make the comparison.



This says, "Sis of Anna Bear Gwin Freeman" -- we earlier thought that maybe it was Eliza and E. T. (Ezra) Wells 


This comment was too long, so I put it beneath the photo.

JTW:  I found this historical document that contains information about our possible relative, Richard W. Guinn. It is interesting-- he served in an Ohio unit, but filed for pension in Kansas. Richard W. Gwin [Jr.], son of Richard W. and Nancy Gwin, was about 15 years old when the Civil War began. Could he have served? I think you will find this very interesting. 

His Civil War pension card shows:
?
Guinn, Richard W.
?
[Company] L (or S?), 7[th] Ohio Cav.
?
Filed 1889 Feb 14
Class Invalid
Application No. 689790
Certificate No. 818716? [ JTW: He got a pension.]
State from which filed:? Kans.

JMG: Thanks for sending all this good stuff, Jim!

Yes, in my opinion, he could have served, though probably not from the beginning of the war but rather, say, 1863 or later, when he would've been old enough.

Cavalry horses needed care, and I imagine a young private in a cav. unit could have served as a "stable-hand", not actually having ridden, and still be listed as part of the unit.

Question: does the "Invalid" means he was an invalid as a result of his military service? Or do you think this means that his application was not valid?

Subject: Martha Gwin Snyder, d/o Richard W. Gwin and Nancy Watkins

Here is a biographical sketch of William W. Snyder, who married Martha Gwin. They lived in Washington County, Iowa. The piece indicates that Richard Gwin, Martha's father (son of Isom Gwin and Mary Canterberry), was born in Tennessee, and Nancy Watkins was born in Kentucky. Also, that Richard and Nancy Gwin died in Wilson County, Iowa in 1884.

My book on Harrison County, Indiana marriages shows the following:

PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM of Washington County, Iowa, containing Full Page Portraits and Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizens of the County, CHICAGO: ACME PUBLISHING COMPANY, 1887.

Page 628:

WILLIAM W. SNYDER, a progressive farmer and stock-raiser, residing on section 34, English River Township, was born in Monongalia County, Va. [now WV], March 14, 1831. He is the son of Jeremiah and Anna (Rich) Snyder, also natives of the Old Dominion, and the parents of twelve children, of which number nine are yet living:
George and John are deceased;
Abram is a resident of Greene County, Pa.;
Rollo, deceased;
Cassandra is the widow of George Hogg, who was killed in the army;
Jeremiah, Jr., is farming in Lime Creek Township, this county;
Jacob, a retired farmer, is residing in Iowa City;
Colby is farming extensively in Johnson County, Iowa;
Samuel, in Adair County;
Elizabeth is the wife of George Figgins, a farmer of English River Township, and
W. W., the subject of this sketch.

The father followed the occupation of a farmer in his native State until 1842, when, hearing of the opportunities offered in the far West, and believing it would be for the advantage of his large family of children, he concluded to emigrate. He first proceeded with his family to Wheeling, thence by boat to Keokuk, Iowa, and from there overland to English River Township. He entered 250 acres of land in sections 1 and 12, and commenced to open up a farm. As one of the pioneers of this county, he became well known by all old citizens, and was a man held in high favor. Although not connected with any church, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were strong believers in the divinity of Christ and took an interest in all Church work. The mother died in 1860 and the father in 1873. Both rest in the old Snyder Cemetery, near which stood the Snyder Chapel. Many lessons of truth, charity and in-

tegrity were presented in the lives of these good old people.

The early life of the subject of this sketch was passed on his father's farm and in attendance at the common schools until he reached the age of twenty, when he started out for himself, and began working for $8 per month. On the 9th of December, 1852, he was united in marriage with Miss Martha Gwin, a native of Menard County, Ill., born March 27, 1834, and the daughter of Richard and Nancy (Watkins) Gwin, the former a native of Tennessee and the latter of Kentucky. They were married in Indiana, whence they removed first to Illinois at an early day and thence emigrated to Iowa, settling in Des Moines County in 1836, thus being among the pioneers of the State. The father died Jan. 7, 1884, and the mother July 6, 1884, in Wilson County, Kan. They were well-known and useful citizens in the different localities in which they lived.

Mr. And Mrs. Snyder became the parents of five children: Ida, the wife of A. M. Turner, a farmer in Potter County, Dak; Charles F., pursuing the same vocation there also; Anna, the wife of S. A. Rodgers, a farmer of the same locality; Eva, at home, preparing herself for a teacher; Adella, at home. Mr. And Mrs. Snyder have given all of their children good school advantages, and all are members of the Missionary Baptist Church, thus comprising a devoted Christian family.

After the marriage of our subject he continued to reside on the old homestead until 1869, when he purchased the farm where he now lives. When he first took possession it had only a small frame house on it, in which the family lived and worked happily together until 1882. The old house was then moved back to give place to a more modern and convenient dwelling. Mr. And Mrs. Snyder are now in the evening of life, some of their children growing up around them and some leaving home to seek their fortunes in a new country, as did their parents before them. They have witnessed many and great changes. Their farm, which at the time of purchase was unimproved, is now under a high state of cultivation and one of the most valuable in the township. They have seen the building of the church upon the hillside and the school-house in the valley, and have taken an active part in all religious, temperance and public affairs. During the past five years Mr. Snyder has turned his attention to the raising of high-grade stock, having on hand a number of superior Clydesdale horses, and a fine lot of Chester White hogs and Short-horn cattle. Politically, Mr. Snyder is a democrat and has held various township offices.

Subject: WILLIAM L. GWIN, SON OF RICHARD W. GWIN, SON OF ISAAM GWIN (PART 1 OF 4)

JOHN, I LOOKED THROUGH MY GWIN PAPERS AND FOUND THE REFERENCE TO ISOM GWIN (MY 4GGF) FREEING HIS SLAVES AND MOVING TO INDIANA.  IT IS CONTAINED IN A GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF KEOKUK COUNTY, IOWA, THE LEWIS PUBLISHING COMPANY, 1903., PAGES 264-267.  IT WAS PROVIDED TO ME BY GWIN  COUSIN MERLE E. TURNIPSEED, WASHINGTON, IOWA IN 1993.

IT IS VERY INTERESTING!  IT SAYS THAT ISAAM GWIN WAS A NATIVE OF  IRELAND--I NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE, AND SORT OF DOUBT IT IS TRUE.  I  DO KNOW THAT ISOM GWIN/ISHAM GUINN LIVED IN BOTETOURT & MONTGOMERY  COUNTIES,  VIRGINIA-- HE SERVED IN THE MILITIA IN MONTGOMERY  COUNTY AND MARRIED MARY CANTERBERRY, DAUGHTER OF SAMUEL IN MONTGOMERY  COUNTY.  IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HER NAME SHOWN AS "CANTEBERRY" IN THE IOWA COUNTY HISTORY.

ALSO INTERESTING ARE THE MANY MOVES MADE BY RICHARD W. GWIN, THE NAMING OF HIS WIFE NANCY WATKINS AND HER PARENTS, PLUS THE NAMING OF RICHARD AND NANCY'S 15 CHILDREN WITH DEATH DATES OF SOME OF THE CHILDREN.

IN ADDITION, THE LIFE OF ISOM AND MARY'S GRANDSON WILLIAM W. GWIN IS  SPELLED OUT IN SUBSTANTIAL DETAIL.

I AM PROVIDING THE FOUR PAGES AS AN ATTACHMENT TO THIS E-MAIL.  I WILL PROVIDE THE RECORDS OF ISOM GWIN'S (ISHAM GUINN'S) MILITARY SERVICE IN THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY (VIRGINIA) MILITIA AND HIS LAND PURCHASE SEPARATELY.

BEST WISHES,
JIM




In December 2005Jim Wall sent me this biography of William W. Gwin from the book named below (red highlights mine).
The four-page entry was sent to him in 1993 by Gwin cousin Merle E. Turnipseed.
GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY
of Keokuk County, Iowa
The Lewis Publishing Co., 1903
p. 264
WILLIAM W. GWIN.
    It is now our privilege and pleasure to trace the life of one of Keota's most honored citizen (sic) from the time his grandfather came to this county over a century ago, until the present, when the grandson after a successful life is spending his remaining days in peaceful contemplation of the past and hope of the future. Isaam Gwin, grandfather of William W. Gwin, was a native of Ireland (sic); his wife was Mary Canteberry (sic); he left the land of his birth when very young, and settled with his wife in Tennessee about the time it became a state. By trade he was a miller and by profession a Baptist preacher. Although a slave holder, the practice was abhorrent to his nature, and in 1820 he freed his slaves and moved to Indiana, that he might be in a state opposed to slavery, and in this state he died. He was the father of ten

p. 265

children, the father of our subject being the ninth child and the youngest son.
    R. W. Gwin, the father of William W., and an early settler of Iowa, was born on his father's homestead in Tennessee on January 30, 1804, and there his boyhood was passed, and he received such educational advantages as were then to be had. He was not yet twenty years old when his father removed to the free state of Indiana. There he was married when twenty-one years of age and five years later moved to Illinois and occupied a farm of one hundred and sixty acres east of the Illinois river. In 1831, crossing the Illinois, he settled on another farm of one hundred and sixty acres and remained there about five years. His next move was across the Mississippi into Des Moines county, Iowa, where he lived for two years; then for five years he was in Louisa county, and in 1843 he bought, in Washington county, four hundred acres of land from the government, which he improved and cultivated until 1858. Then emigrating with part of his family to Kansas, he settled on five hundred acres of partly improved land, on which he built a house and made many improvements; about 1878 he moved further south to Montgomery county, Kansas, purchasing a fine farm and town property in Independence, and here in 1885 he ended his long and useful life. He was a Republican in politics and a member of the Sons of Temperance. His wife was Nancy Watkins, born in 1807 in Kentucky, where she was reared and educated; her parents were John and Mary Watkins, who removed to Indiana about the same time Mr. Gwin's father did. Mr. and Mrs. Gwin were the parents of fifteen children, five boys and ten girls. One child died in 1843, and from then on until 1885 the family was unbroken by death. The children are as follows: Mary (deceased), William W., Jane, Sarah,

p. 266

Martha (deceased), John, Louisa, Nancy (died in 1843), Elizabeth, Marguerette, Caroline, Anna, Richard, Martin, and Walter.
     Our immediate subject, William W. Gwin, whose father and grandfather we have just sketched, was born in Indiana on September 29, 1827, and so was nine years old when his father crossed the Mississippi river into Iowa. And in 1858, when  his faher removed to Kansas, he had already a fine farm on two hundred acres in Washington county. He had purchased his land from the government between the years 1847 and 1855 and had brought it into a fine state of cultivation. In 1885 Mr. Gwin moved to Keokuk county and bought a house and lot in Keota, and retired from active farming. For two years he was engineer in a flour mill, and it 1889 he engaged in the lumber business by buying out the old Hinkle lumber yard. This venture proved very successful, and later he took in S. S. Wright as partner; in 1895 he sold his interest to his partner, and has since lived retired, having well earned a rest and freedom from business cares.
     Mr. Gwin was married in 1851 to Catherine Rush, who was born in 1833 in Ohio, where she remained till she was thirteen years old; she is the daugher of Absalom Rush and Violet Arnold, who came to Iowa and settled on a farm in 1846. Mr. and Mrs. Gwin were the parents of ten children, six boys and four girls; Joshua (deceased), Smiley (deceased), Ella May, Williard D., Nora A., Lillie, and Orley.
     Mr. Gwin is a charter member of Masonic Lodge, No. 96, at Richmond. He is a charter member of the Christian church at Keota, helped to build it, and among the first officers of the church he was chosen the first elder and the third trustee, and is now also president of the offical board. As a Republican, he has served as a member of

p. 267
the city council. His life spent in varied activity has reflected honor not only upon himself but upon those with whom he has lived.







More Excellent Communication


Following are Sharon Days's original emails from which the chart below was organized:
From: DizzieLDayataoldotcom
Date: April 19, 2010
To: jmcdgwin@zianet.com, DizzieLDay@aol.com
Subject: Just Discovered Isom/Isham Web Site - I am from this line

 
I have been researching all of my family lines for years off and on. My maiden name is Sharon Rae Gwin, born September 16th, 1950. My father was Walter Thomas Gwin, son of Walter Carter Gwin, son of Orley Bush Gwin. Orley Bush Gwin's parents were William Watkins Gwin and Catherine Bush (not Rush). William's father was Richard W. Gwin married to Nancy Watkins. Of course Richard's father was indeed Isom (Isham, Isam) Gwin married to Mary Canterbury.  Mary was of Welsh decent, migrated to Scotland, and later to Ireland. His brother Moses might have changed his name because I really cannot find a direct Moses and Isam connection. This brother supposedly had a son named William who my family believed was Senator William M. Gwin of California. Somewhere around this time a daughter (Alice) born to either William or someone in the Moses line, changed the spelling to Gwynne and married Cornelius Vanderbilt.
 
This information came from a family tree done by Orley Bush Gwin and through conversations of my grandfather Walter Carter Gwin told to my grandmother--his wife, Monica Grell Gwin. The family tree and information states that Isam (as spelled on this chart) had a brother named Moses (Mosam, Mosom). They came from a family line in Ireland who came to Virginia in the 1700's. (exact date unknown).  According to this family tree done probably in the early 1900's, Isam (Isom, Isham) had 7 children with Mary.  As was the case back then, always more information on the sons than the daughters!  His children, as documented by Great-grandfather Orley Bush Gwin, were: Isam, [Jr.], first son.  Isam was reportedly very short; he became a ship builder in Mobile, Alabama. William, Isam's second son, was supposedly 6'1" tall, and that is all my g-grandfather knew about him!
[John M. Gwin Note: This would be my ggg-granduncle, William, who married Beard.]  John, the third son, was 6'3" tall, and that is all on him, too! [John M. Gwin Note: This would be my ggg-grandpa, John (1792-1877).] Richard Ward was the 4th son (this is my lineage) [John M. Gwin Note: Our other sources have his middle name as Walton.] and grandfather to Orley Bush Gwin (generator of this tree and information). Richard Ward was born on January 31, 1805, and died January 1885. He married Nancy Watkins, daughter of John and Polly Watkins. She was born March 15, 1807, and died July 1885. They were married April 15, 1824. The only other children of Isam's, as recorded by Orley Bush were: Mahala, who married a Henderson of Indiana [John M. Gwin Note: His name was Houston.]; Minerva, who married a Lincoln of Indiana, formerly of Kentucky [John M. Gwin Note: His name was Elijah Wright.]; and Mary, who married John Denton of Indiana [John M. Gwin Note: We have her as Elizabeth--probably Mary Elizabeth--who married David Denton.]. Orley does not mention the other two daughters (I  do not know why). Richard Ward and Nancy Gwin had at least 16 children as documented by Orley Bush Gwin. Their thirdborn child, William Watkins Gwin, was born September 29, 1827, and died, according to Orley, on October 17, 1907 (all the internet family sites state the year as 1904). He married Catherine Bush on 11/2/1851. It is not clear if William and Catherine were divorced or not and if William might have been married twice. The only thing that Orley documented was his direct lineage. For some reason Orley wrote his mother's death date as 6/22/1865?  I believe her actual death date was October 8, 1914. Her family history was told by her to her son, Orley, in 1906 and recorded then. Orley Bush Gwin was married twice, although the second marriage, was childless. He married Mary Loyd (Loid) who was born in 1880 and died in 1965. Orley Bush Gwin was born on April 19,  1873. Here is one of family skeleton's comes in to play. It is believed that Orley and Mary had two sons, Robert Loyd and Walter Carter, my grandfather. Orley and Mary divorced and Mary took off to Alaska, leaving her two sons with their father at ages 7 and 8.  Mary evidently had a lover who fathered Robert. Orley became  a very bitter and angry man, and my grandfather, Walter Carter Gwin, never forgave his mother.  She did marry Albert Traeger. Years later she would return to my grandfather's home when she was in her 70's needing a place to live. My grandfather refused, and she ended up living in a trailer on the property of my Aunt Mary, daughter to Walter Carter Gwin.  Walter Carter Gwin was born on April 13, 1901. He died in 1999-2000 ( I have the exact date, just not in front of me). He married Monica G. Grell in 1923. My grandmother died in 1998. They were married 75 years. Walter and Monica had four children: Mary, Walter Thomas (my father), Patricia and Susan (born in 1948,  my aunt and only  two years older than me).  My father, Walter Thomas Gwin was born on July 23, 1927. He married Laura Arlene Brown (born April 3, 1924) on July 4,1947. I am the only child of Walter Thomas and Laura Arlene Gwin. So, I am the end of this line.
 
What I have never been able to determine for sure is Isam's (Isham, Isom). I believe my g-grandfather, Orley, that he had a brother whose given formal name was Mosam. Orley made no mention of who Isam's father was; doubt if he knew. I keep hoping that some document will surface establishing a clear link to Richard Gwin and who the heck is Moses!
 
But, I am almost certain that your John was the son of Isam and we are indeed related. Given the naming convention at the time, the names of his sons, Isam, William, John, and Richard, probably all came from their grandfathers and fathers.
 
Regards,
Sharon Rae Gwin Day

My maiden name is Sharon Rae Gwin, born September 16th, 1950. My father was
Walter Thomas Gwin, son of
Walter Carter Gwin, son of
Orley Bush Gwin. Orley Bush Gwin's parents were
William Watkins Gwin and Catherine Bush (not Rush). William's father was
Richard W. Gwin married to Nancy Watkins. Of course Richard's father was indeed
Isom (Isham, Isam) Gwin married to Mary Canterbury. Mary was of Welsh decent; her ancestors migrated to Scotland and later to Ireland.

Isom's brother Moses might have changed his name, because I really cannot find a direct Moses and Isam connection. This brother supposedly had a son named William who my family believed was Senator William M. Gwin of California. Somewhere around this time a daughter (Alice) was born to either William or someone in the Moses line, and she changed the spelling to Gwynne and married Cornelius Vanderbilt.
 
This information came from a family tree done by Orley Bush Gwin and through conversations of my grandfather Walter Carter Gwin told to my grandmother, his wife, Monica Grell Gwin. The family tree and information states that Isam (as spelled on this chart) had a brother named Moses (Mosam, Mosom). They came from a family line in Ireland who came to Virginia in the 1700's. (exact date unknown). According to this family tree done probably in the early 1900's, Isam (Isom, Isham) had 7 children with Mary. As was the case back then, always more information on the sons than the daughters!  His children, as documented by my great-grandfather, Orley Bush Gwin, were (see first column in chart below):


Isham Gwin's 7 children, as documented by Sharon's great-grandfather, Orley Bush Gwin: Isham Gwin's 11-12 known children, as documented by John M. Gwin's analysis:
Isam, first son. Isam was reportedly very short. He became a ship builder in Mobile, Alabama.
06--Isom Gwin II, b. unk.; m1. Mary Likens; m2. Betsy Snowden  We know from his marriage records that this Isom II exists and married the two wives named here and in this order.  We are not sure at all of his own birth order and place him here as number six solely because of the approximately nine-year gap between Virginia and Richard.  But Orley Bush Gwin specifically lists him as the eldest son, which might place him in the perhaps three-year gap between Polly and Elizabeth, if not even before Polly.
 William, second son was supposedly 6'1" tall, and that is all my g-grandfather knew about him!
03--William Gwin, b. ca. 1790; m. Susanna Beard
John, the third son, was 6'3" tall, and that is all on him, too!
04--John Gwin, b. 1792; m. Jane Walker
Richard Ward, was the 4th son (this is my--i.e., Sharon's--lineage) and grandfather to Orley Bush Gwin (generator of this tree and information). Richard Ward was born on January 31, 1805, and died January 1885. He married Nancy Watkins, daughter of John and Polly Watkins. She was born March 15, 1807, and died July 1885. They were married April 15, 1824.
08--Richard W. Gwin, b. 1804; m. Nancy Elizabeth Watkins
Mahala, who married a Henderson of Indiana;
11--Mahala C. Gwin, b. 1808; m. John B. Huston
Minerva, who married a Lincoln of Indiana, formerly of Kentucky;
12--Minerva Gwin, b. ca. 1809; m. Elijah Wright
Mary, who married John Denton of Indiana.
02--Elizabeth Gwin, b. 1788; m. David Denton

05--Virginia Jane Gwin, b. 1795; m1. Mr. Tipton, m2. Benjamin Weathers

10--Sarah Gwin, b. 1806; m. William M. Huston

09--Nancy Gwin, b. ca. 1805; m. Squire Huston

07--[Chesley R. Gwin, b. unk.; m. unk.]  We know the absolute least about this son. We are not completely sure he even exists. But hints and unaccounted-for persons of this very significant name in certain censuses suggest he might be a child of Isham, and we place him here as number six solely because of the approximately nine-year gap between Virginia and Richard.








Here is the list of Richard Ward Gwin's and Nancy Watkins Gwin's 16 kids according to the chart Sharon sent me:

01--Mary Bear, b. 15 Feb 1825;
02--Elizabeth b. 7 Nov 1826; d. 10 Nov 1826;
03--William Watkins, b. 29 Sep 1829; d. 17 Oct 1907 or 1904; m. 11 Feb 1851 to Catherine Bush (b. unk.; d. unk.)
04--June, b. 27 Mar 1830;
05--Sarah Ann, b. 23 Aug 1831;
06--Martha Miles, b. 27 Ma 1833; d. bef. 1906;
07--John William Gwin, 27 Nov 1834;
08--Eliza, b. 6 Apr 1837
09--Nancy, b. 8 Sep 1838; d. Sep 1843
10--Elizabeth, b. 20 Apr 1840;
11--Margaret, b. 17 Apr 1842;
12--Caroline, b. 3 Jan 1844;
13--Anna Bear, b. 26 Oct 1845;
14--Richard Wesley, b. 22 Mar 1847;
15--Martin Portero, b. 7 Dec 1843; d. 1906;
16--Silas Walton, b. 3 may 1850; d. 1906;

This is a pretty good read, and it mentions the Gwins and Bears that were in the county early on. (Start on about page 294)
 
http://www.usgennet.org/usa/topic/historical/LightOn/1880wash_1.htm
 
     William M. Gwin, who settled in the vicinity of Richmond in 1843, still resides on his original claim. He has probably lived in the State longer than any other inhabitant of the county, he having come to Des Moines county in 1835.  Mrs. Mary Bear, Mrs. Martha Snyder, and Mrs. Elizabeth Adams, sisters of Mr. Gwin, are also very early settlers, they having come to the county about the same time. Absalom Bush settled on a claim one mile west of Richmond in the year 1846; he says there were but three houses in the town at that time.
 
Cheers!

Josephine had three children and was pregnant with #4 at the time.

 John, I'm exhausted.  Can we finish this later?  I've been sitting here for three hours to do this from all my notes. Would you please answer this e-mail carrying my above letter so that I can have a copy of it?
 
Thanks.  My best wishes to your family.

Dear John,
 
What a thrill to discover your information online, to find the Gwin history past William W. and Catherine.
I have spent the last two days going through your entry on the Gwin family and fitting it into our family tree. My husband is a descendant from Ella May, daughter of William W. and Catherine Gwin. We have the "Gwin" rocker in our bedroom, which has been passed down through the family.
My husband, Victor Lee Klopfenstein, is son of Mariella Scott and Harold Klopfenstein.
Mariella is daughter of Nellie Bartholomew and Orva Scott.
Nellie is daughter of Ella May Gwin and Frederick Bartholomew.
 
The information that I have does have Catherine's last name as Bush, not Rush. I wondered if I had it wrong and thought I might look further at the Washington Co. and Keokuk Co. genealogy libraries. This evening I tried putting Absalom Bush family on the google.com search. Up came the Washington County Portrait and Biographical Album--1887. After scrolling down a ways, there was Absalom Bush. Also the obituary that I was able to obtain had the name as Bush.
 
If you wish a rundown on my info, let me know. Most of my information is from knowing the people involved and from obits.
 
Thank you for all the work you have done and for sharing it with everyone.
 
In friendship,
Patricia Soethout Klopfenstein

Hi John!

Again, I thank you so very much for all the time spent compiling all this information.  I have been researching my Rice line.I was going over my direct line and I have some information to add and a few corrections.

 

I didn’t realize you were entering the Freeman’s line.  I could have sent you a lot of information. I think I will send you group sheets.  Here are a few corrections:

 

Page 12: 1856 Census: I am positive that R. W. Gwin was born in TN and Nancy Gwin born in KY.

 

Page 14: I know there is a descrepency in the middle name of Richard W. (I have Walton). They named their son Silas Walton Gwin. Walton  on 1860 Census.

 

Page 17:  Richard Walton Gwin and Nancy Elizabeth Watkins, under remarks.   In 1997 the house (not the cabin) still stands and is located at 1146 Cedar St. Ottawa, KS.

 

Page 17: 
25.01--Thomas R. Freeman, b. 18 Aug 1864, Fontana, Miami Co., KS; d. 1960 married Mary Liggett (b. 1864 KY; d.)
25.02--Francello Der Mont Freeman, b. 1 Jan 1871, Fontana, Miami Co KS; married Fannie E. Dienst

Page 18
26.01--DeVyr  Freeman married Muriel Gracina Housey, divorced; had 1 child still living;
27.01--Edith Muriel Freeman; m1. Nicosis; m2. Albert Josph Affatato
