Left:  In 1982 Uncle James B. Gwin gave to his baby brother--my dad, Adrian Sutton Gwin--this photo of their grandpa--William Sutton Gwin, as a six-year-old boy ca. 1854. Center: Here's Sutton as a young man in his mid to late teens. Taken professionally in Selma, this photo appears in the old album belonging to Barbara Ward (click here to see more of this album's 70+ photos). The photo on the right was sent to me, John Gwin, by a friend in Wilsonville, AL, the late Mr. Oland D. Smith. The writing on the margin of the picture makes it clear that this is Wm. Sutton "Sutt" Gwin, taken near the end of his life (say, 1900, age 52, to 1916, age 68). His ear is exactly the same as that of my father--Adrian Sutton Gwin, WSG's grandson (12 Sep 1916 - 7 May 2001).


25.03--William Sutton "Sutt" Gwin--my great-grandfather, b. 5 Jun 1848, at Cahaba, AL, (incorrectly listed as age 35 in the 1880 Wilsonville Census); d. 11 Sep 1916, age 68, at Wilsonville, AL; bd. Wilsonville Cem., Wilsonville, Shelby Co., AL--Find A Grave Memorial# 9741290; m. 2 Dec 1868 to Ida Eliza Basset (pronounced /bah-SAY/; b. 5 May 1845 in Worthing, Sussex Co., England; [but listed as age 33 in the 1880 Wilsonville Census!]; d. 8 Dec 1907, age 62; bd. beside her husband in Wilsonville Cem., Wilsonville, Shelby Co., AL--Find A Grave Memorial# 9741293); in the 1900 census, she reports 12 ch., eight of whom were still living; six of the 12 raised families: [17 known g-ch.: JBG--4; WSGJ--1; LJGH--1; GHG--7; NDGM--1; PKG--3;]

I have a letter written from Ida in Wilsonville to her son Jim (who would become my grandfather) dated 27 May 1907, just six and a half months before she died; the 1880 Wilsonville Census lists the six oldest living children as shown below, in addition to whom is a 15-year-old black girl, Henrietta Hibb/Hebb; [John Gwin Note:  Generation 28 in all families below except James Basset Gwin are my second cousins.];  I also have a copy, sent to me by my new friend Ms. Mary Elizabeth Tinney Hill of Wilsonville, of a Justice of the Peace document written by Grandpa Sutt and dated 15 Nov 1888; Ms. Hill has also provided material for a History of Wilsonville page I am building;
[listed as Wm. Guinn, 2, lvg. with his parents and older sister, in the 5 Nov 1850 census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL]

26.03--James Basset Gwin I b. 21 Apr 1872 at Frog Level, AL, near Bellevue, a mile or so west of Browns on the Southern RR, Dallas Co., AL; age 8 in the 1880 Wilsonville, AL, Census; d. 21 Oct 1921 under the wreck of Southern Railway #17 near Greensboro, AL, as the train's conductor, having lived for two hours after being thrown from the window and pinned at the waist under the railroad car in which he'd been riding; bd. at City Cem., Selma, AL; m. 22 Feb 1909 in Birmingham, AL, to Adrian ("Ada") Bell Vardaman (b. 3 Feb 1877 in Coosa Co., AL; d. 26 Feb 1954 in New Orleans, LA; bd. at Smyrna Primitive Baptist Ch. Cem. about 3 miles east of Goodwater, AL).  Jim and Ada were living in Selma when Jim's dad, Wm. Sutton Gwin, died in 1916.

[John Gwin Note: Dad, Adrian Gwin, told me in 1999 that his mother, Adabelle, had told him when he was in high school that Jim Gwin was born near Bellevue, AL.]

27.01--James Bassett Gwin II (1 Jun 1910 - 1 Mar 1984); (family data on James Basset Gwin I's page)

27.02--John Vardaman Gwin (23 Apr 1912 -  _____); (family data on James Basset Gwin I's page)

27.03--Julia Ida Gwin (12 Dec 1914 - ___1990?); (family data on James Basset Gwin I's page)

27.04--Adrian Sutton Gwin (12 Sep 1916 - 7 May 2001); (family data on James Basset Gwin I's page)

[John Gwin NOTE: I have a note written to me by my dad, Adrian S. Gwin, dated 18 Jun 2000.  He wrote it while living in the apartment on Triviz here in Las Cruces, NM, where I visited them daily.  It reads:
"John - in the bottom drawer at left under sink cabinet in kitchen at 7 Keiffer there is a rolling pin wrapped in a cloth and with two cans for biscuit cutters on the "long" end--looks something like this (all one piece):
This was Mother's prized keepsake from Grampa Gwin, Dad's dad (who died night before I was born) HE MADE IT, turned on a footpowered lathe - gave it to her shortly after they were married on 2-22-1909 -- (the other rolling pin, somewhere there, with the spindle-prong end, is NOT HIS -I dunno where that one came from -- trash)   Keep it, give to Pat, or any of the grandchildren who will keep it -- pls. keep in family!  If one of the girl grandchildren--Courtney or Lauren, too-- is good biscuit maker, give to her!  I've used it countless times since Ma quit the boardinghouse!  It's a good rolling pin!  I've neve seen another rolling pin with only a "thumb" hold on the left, so: {Here he draws another profile sketch with an arrow pointing to the left handle}  But it's a good r.p. - I've used it years'n'years -- "handmade by footpower!"  It should have been mentioned in the "biscuits" column recently because I'm sure she got it out for that occasion--she did not cook 1st few yrs of marriage - they boarded here & there - Anniston was 1st home they bought - so she would have used the rolling pin there - and forever afterward - take care of it -- Dad"

After Dad died 7 May 2001, I returned to WV for his memorial service and to get the house ready for sale, but I could not find the rolling pin.  I remembered seeing it many times there in the kitchen over the years, but it had disappeared.  When my father-in-law, Stan Hamrick, died just days later, Sharon came to WV with our daughter Charity to help us get both houses ready to sell, and we found a hand-made rolling pin (shown here) in the trunk in the attic very similar to the one Dad described, but it's not the same one.  I believe this is one that Dad himself made, probably in the 1980's when he was making wooden kitchen utensils for everyone for Christmas, as it has the marks of his work on it and does not look to have been turned on a lathe but rather sawn and whittled into shape; further, the special thumb-only left handle is longer on this one than it is in his sketch and my memory--Grampa Sutt's was shorter, flatter--looked more like one of the wooden drawer pulls on an inexpensive chest of drawers.

I can only assume that either (1) Mother, in her dementia, gave the thing away to a relative, or (2) someone took the old one from their kitchen without Dad knowing it, and the one pictured here is one Dad had made himself.  Reader, if you know what happened to this old rolling pin, please e.mail me. I'd really like to keep it in the Gwin family, as this was one of Dad's last wishes.]

26.04--Kate Lula Gwin b. 4 Jul 1874; age 6 in the 1880 Wilsonville Census; d. 22 Aug 1953 in Tuscaloosa Co. [Vol. 36, Certif. 17519, Roll 5]; never married; she was living in Wilsonville when her dad, Wm. Sutton Gwin, died on 11 Sep 1916.

[John Gwin NOTE 1: These two pictures of Kate (right) were sent to me by Virginia Cousin Ann Gray of the Basset side of the family.  They were with several other pictures (below), at least one of which was taken in Talladega, AL, in the mid-to-late 1930's; therefore, it seems likely that these may have come from that same time, meaning that Kate was possibly living in Talladega by then--or she may have been just visiting from Wilsonville (the two cities are only about 40-50 miles apart).  The respective backs read, in probably Nell's hand: "Kate Gwin and my friend Miss Sallie Pippen" (center), and "Kate out in my yard."]

Kate had infantile paralysis as a child and walked with a limp--thanks for this last to cousin Martha Marable Hanson.

[John Gwin NOTE 2: I speculate that Kate Lula was named for her father's first cousin, Lula Gwin, b. ca. 1861 to Chesley R. Gwin and Fannie Bell Gwin; perhaps the older Lula died just before Kate Lula was born, prompting the namesake.]

26.06--John Louis Gwin b. 30 Sep 1877; listed as John W. Gwin, age 3 in the 1880 Wilsonville Census--however, his full name could easily have been John Wesley Louis Gwin, since he was born only days after the death of his uncle, Dr. John Wesley Gwin, for whom he was likely named; d. 18 May 1942 in Arizona; m. 19 May 1906 to Ruth Irwin (b. unk.; d. 1930); no children; according to the obituary of John's father, WS Gwin, Sr., John and Ruth were living in Prescott, AZ, when WSG Sr. died on 11 Sep 1916;
DESCENDANTS NOT POSSIBLE
[listed as John L. Gwin, 23 and b. Sep 1876 in AL/AL/AL, gold miner, in the 22 Jun 1900 census of Prescott, Yavapai Co., AZ Terr., and boarding with brother, William Gwin, next door to their sister, "Lizzie G." and her husband, Lawson Hebb];

[John M. Gwin Note: In Apr 2006 I received this photo from my dear friend, the late Ms. Mary Elizabeth Tinney Hill, of Wilsonville, AL. I believe the John Gwin in the picture to be this John Louis Gwin, who would've been 24-25 years old and single in 1902. The Osceola "Osie" Tinney is her relative. She said, "Shelby Co. Reporter is selling a new book of pictures gathered from around the county. The book cost $43.50; this includes postage. Let me know if you get this. Love, Mary Elizabeth Hill"]

[John Gwin Note: A 1907 letter to my grandfather, Jim Gwin, from his mom, Ida Gwin, seems to substantiate with all but complete certainty that the following letter from Laura Baker is correct:

Mr. Gwin,
In response to your posted message, I believe we have a match!!  There were (2) Lawson Hebbs born in my line.  The first was the son of George Vernon Hebb and Jane Yell, my gg-grandparents.  He was born in Sep 1866 in Lincoln Co., TN;  the family moved to Wilsonville AL; I am still researching as to when.  The 2nd was the son of my g-grandfather, Richard S. Hebb and Iona Crumpton; he was born in Dec 1895 in Wilsonville. --Laura Baker ]

[not listed in the 22 Jun 1900 census of Yavapai Co., AZ Terr., but reported there by Lucy as having been born and died]

[JMG NOTE:  My uncle, James B. Gwin II, from whom I inherited almost all of my original information, had recorded from some unknown misinformation that Gayle, the only child of Gwin and Jean C. Hebb, was adopted. I accepted that as truth and posted it here. Later, after I had made contact with Gayle via e.mail, her son Ron had noticed this error and was distressed to discover that Gayle "was adopted". He immediately contacted her, and she contacted me, assuring me that this was not the case, that she had a copy of her birth certificate. Any reader who finds another place on this or another site which is perpetuating the error is encouraged to contact me. Thanks so much.]

26.09--George Henry Gwinb. 10 19 Feb 1882 at Wilsonville, Ala., d. 8 Aug 1953; m. 27 Dec 1908 to Valera Laruna Riddle of Wilsonville (b. 20 Dec 1882 1886; d. 23 Dec 1976); according to the obituary of his father, W. S. Gwin, Sr., GHG was living in Manchester, GA, when WSG Sr. died in 1916.
[listed as Valeria L. Riddle, dau, b. Dec 1886, age 13, in the 18 Jun 1900 census of Pct. #9, Wilsonville (not the town proper), Shelby Co., AL]

[Gail Gwin Little NOTE, 26 Jan 2007:  Dad went to Florida this Christmas (2006) and finally got the correct information: George Henry Gwin b. Feb 19th, 1882 d. Aug. 8, 1953; Valera Riddle Gwin b. Dec. 20, 1886 d. Dec. 23, 1976]

[JMG NOTE:  My dad, the late Adrian Sutton Gwin (26.03--27.04 above) told me 14 Jul 2000 that his uncle, George Henry Gwin, was a conductor for the Seaboard RR somewhere on the east coast and went on strike.  In 1931, Dad and his family lived in Demopolis, AL, and that was the very year that Uncle George's family stopped to visit Dad's family for several days on their way to the west coast to live in Oregon where George continued to work as a railroad conductor and flagman.  Dad believed that Aunt Valera may have died out in Oregon; regardless, Uncle George finally retired there and moved to Florida where he lived his remaining years.   [Gail Gwin Little Note:...you stated that your dad thought Valera, my grandmother, died in Oregon; she didn't, she died in Miami 3 days after her 90th birthday, Dec. 23, 1976.]   For several years Dad and their son (Dad's first cousin), George H. Gwin II, exchanged Christmas cards, most recently in December 1998.  Dad gave me cousin George's 1998 address in Miami Springs, FL.]

[In August 2003, Ms. Mary Elizabeth Tinney Hill of Wilsonville, AL, sent me a copy of her notes taken from an obituary for Valera Riddle.  Below is my transcription of those notes. --John M. Gwin]

I am LaVerne Gwin, now Carlson, and I read all the info; some needs corrections, but I was interested in the Hebb family history.  I was born here in California, and the rest of my dad's side of the family stayed in Florida. 

I went to Gene Hebb's home and played with a son, so I would love to hear from Gayle Hebb if at all possible.

My dad was Earl C. Gwin, formerly a line from the Suttons, and I remember "Uncle Duck" as we called him.  Nice to see the pictures of our family and a picture of my great-grandmother. 

I would love to print this out, but there's so much info. 

I was trying to see if the family is more Scottish or Irish or Welsh.

Subject: Herbert C. Fett

Dear John,
My mother, Loretta Traynor Kenny, is 86 years old.  She dictated the following to me, and since it involves Herbert C. Fett, M.D., from 1922, I thought you'd be interested.  I'm not a member of the geneology site I located you on, but please pass this on to the descendents of Dr. Fett--the older one than your cousins.  I think he'd like to know that my grandmother's crutches hung in Lourdes after his miraculous surgery saved her leg and her life.
Thanks and happy holidays,
Kathy Kenny Fineman

[John M. Gwin Note: I found a physician, Herbert Fett, 28, in the January 1920 census of Brooklyn Borough, New York City, NY, along with his wife, Maria, 24, and their two babies, John, 1yr. 8 mo., and Doris, five months. I believe this is the doctor who treated Kathy's grandmother.  No mention is made, however, of a Herbert C. Fett (who would've been age eight in 1920), so at this point, I really don't think this incident is about our Herbert C. Fett after all. Nevertheless, the story is interesting, and I present it here for the benefit of those readers who'd like to investigate it further. Thanks for sending it, Kathy!]

On September 9, 1923, Loretta Traynor and her mother, Bridget Mary Clarke Traynor, were released from St. Mary's Hospital in Brooklyn. Loretta, the second youngest child, had been born there on September 21, 1922, and remained in the hospital while her hospitalized mother was treated for gangrene of the leg and "milk poisoning".   

Bridget was called "Momma" by her children, "Gram" by her grandchildren, and Mary by her husband, Hugh. Hugh felt that "Bridget" was the stereotyped name people called their Irish maids, and his wife, whom he adored, was no maid.

Mary was not expected to survive; the poison was already in her system. Dr. Murphy told Hugh to make arrangements for his and Mary's eight children at home to be spread around to family members, since a single working father couldn't care for eight small children on his own.  Mary's sister Nelly, against her husband's wishes, promised to keep them all; no one was going to separate her sister's children if Mary died.

Surgery was scheduled to amputate her gangrenous leg when Dr. Mahoney, Mary's surgeon, told Hugh that there was an orthopedic resident, Dr. Herbert C. Fett, who had an experimental procedure that might save the leg.  He told Hugh it was a long shot, but he should meet with the resident.  Everything was explained to Hugh.  He had to decide whether to allow Dr. Fett to do an operation on the leg, but not to amputate it.  If Dr. Fett was wrong, the gangrene would surely kill his wife. 

Hugh didn't know what to do, so he prayed to St. Theresa of the Little Flower.  He then went to the Convent of the Cloistered Carmelite Sisters on Nostrand Avenue in Brooklyn to ask for guidance in this life-death decision about the experimental treatment for his beloved Mary's leg.  He spoke with one of the nuns who gave him a relic of St. Theresa of the Little Flower.  She told Hugh to pin it on Mary and make sure it stayed pinned to her throughout the surgery.  Hugh did this and prayed.

Dr. Fett's surgery worked.  After a long, painful recovery time, Mary survived and walked the rest of her life with a limp.  Her crutches hung in the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes Church as a miracle. 

Mary and Hugh had one more child.  Mary outlived her beloved husband.  Momma raised her children.  And Gram was both active in the lives of and a blessing to her grandchildren until she died.  Her baby Loretta, well, she lives a purposeful, blessed, giving, good life in the tradition of her momma.

Evergreen Cem., Tuscaloosa, Tuscaloosa Co., AL--Find A Grave Memorial# 88647956); according to the obituary of her father, W. S. Gwin, Sr., Nell was living in Talladega, AL, when WSG Sr. died in 1916; one known ch.

[My dad, Adrian Sutton Gwin (26.03--27.04 above) told me 14 Jul 2000 that he remembered "Aunt Nell" and her son Billy; it was in 1932, '33, or '34 that the two of them visited Dad's family's home in Anniston for several days.  The Marables lived in Tuscaloosa at the time, as did Aunt Kate.  He doesn't remember Mr. Marable being there on that visit, nor does he know whether he had died or they were separated or divorced, or was simply away on business.]; [according to the Marable website of Mr. James Marable of Davis, CA--James' family members are numbered using the pound sign--#Geo. Marshal Marable was b. ca. 1862 in Walton, GA, the son of #119--George Marable and Elizabeth Burge)  (http://www.marable-family.net/jlmarable/gm030402/d1548.htm#P1548)];


[John Gwin NOTE: These pictures of Nell (left and right) and with her sister, 13 years her senior, 26.04--Kate (center) were sent to me by Virginia Cousin Ann Gray of the Basset side of the family.  They were with several other pictures (below), at least one of which was taken in Talladega, AL, in the mid-to-late 1930's; therefore, it seems likely that these may have come from that same time.  Thanks for sharing, Cousin Ann!]

I am researching the family of the George Marshall Marable that you mention in your Gwin genealogy.  His brother, Draughn William Marable, was our ancestor. If anyone would care to contact me so that we could share information, I'm more than willing. Thanks for your work.      Sue Ellen Marable


27.01--#703. William Marshall ("Billy") Marable; b. 27 Oct 1919 at Talladega, AL; d. 3 Aug 1992 in Tuscaloosa, Tuscaloosa Co., AL; bd. Tuscaloosa Mem.

[John Gwin NOTE: This picture of Billy (below) was sent to me by Virginia Cousin Ann Gray of the Basset side of the family.  It was with several other pictures (above), and was taken one morning in Talladega as he was heading for school at Talledega High School (his shirt reads "Talladega Bears")--probably taken, then, ca. 1935-38.  If you back away from a screen a bit, the closeup may give you a better view of his face.  I think he greatly resembles my dad, Adrian Gwin, Billy's first cousin.]

Marable, was 15 years older than her grandmother Nell (for whom she is named), that he had been married before and divorced, that her daddy had a half-brother by George's first marriage, that Nell was excommunicated from the Episcopal church for marrying a divorced man, that Nell attended the Methodist church thereafter, that George Marshall Marable was the "black sheep" of the Marable family, etc.]

I'm Will Marable's wife Michelle. Nice to meet you. I was looking at your page online last night. Very nice! Showed it to Will, who was chatting to an Amy Marable from Tallegedaga, AL. I wanted to let you know that you had misinformation on your page. Will's sister Kyrah's husband spells his last name Karasevich, and they are about to have a son in Aug. My maiden name is Simmons--Oswalt is my step-father's last name--and our youngest daughter is Isabel Claire. I'll save your email address so that you and Will can keep in touch. Your page was a wealth of info. We really enjoyed reading about the family!

Thank you,
Michelle Marable

Hello John.  I have no idea as to whether the Chauncey Hoffman who attended the Hoffman School in Richland Twp. Cambria County, PA, may be your Chauncey. However, here is what little information I can provide on the person whom (I believe) was in the Hoffman School picture (no indication that he was a Dr.). 

Chauncey Hoffman,  son of Samuel S. Hoffman and Rachel Anne Kelley, was born 5 Jan 1906 in Richland Twp, Cambria Co, PA, and died 7 Apr 1994 in Windber, Somerset Co, Pa. He was buried in Richland Cem., Richland Twp., Cambria Co., PA. He married Mary E. GWIN. She was born 11 Apr 1911 in TN, and died 27 Apr 1998 in Scalp Level, Cambria Co., PA.  Children of Chauncey HOFFMAN and Mary E. GWIN are:
 
1.  Jane C. HOFFMAN was born in Richland Twp, Cambria Co, Pa, and died Bef 1998 in Richland Twp, Cambria Co., PA. She married a Mr. HUGHES.
 
2.  Bettie Ann HOFFMAN was born in Richland Twp, Cambria Co, PA, and died in Johnstown, Cambria Co, Pa. She married Donald SHAFFER. He was born 10 Oct 1939 in Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland Co, PA, and died 25 May 2002 in Windber Hospice, Windber, Somerset Co, PA.

[John Gwin Note: My dad, Adrian Sutton Gwin, told me 14 Jul 2000 that Mary Elizabeth was the oldest of the three (b. about 1912); PKG Jr. ("Little Pete") was second (b. about 1914); and Charles was youngest (b. about 1928), all of which is confirmed by the above census document.  He also told me that Aunt Betty died before MEG was married (1930ish).  They all lived in Meridian, MS, where Uncle Pete was the Chief Dispatcher for the GMNO (Gulf, Mobile, and Northern RR). Dad didn't know what happened to Little Pete or Charles, but MEG married and moved to Pennsylvania. More added Apr 2007: I didn't know it at the time, of course, but this last tells me that the Chauncey Hoffman in the 1930 census above is almost certainly the same. When the 1940 census becomes available in 2010 or so, we'll know for sure.  Now even more added May 2009: I discovered on the internet Don Varner's site on Cambria Co., PA. When I contacted him, he was able to access the above information from his database on Chauncey Hoffman and his family, who is now clearly seen to be our Chauncey.]

Living across town from his brother Sutt and their mother Roseanna is Isham Griffin Gwin, Sr., and his family. He is the fireman at the planer, which I believe must be a mill that produces finished lumber. (While investigating the rest of this census in Wilsonville for other family members, I found the superintendent of the planer living across town.) I suspect that this is part of the same lumber company originally built and owned by Isham's and Sutt's father and Roseanne's husband William. Sutt may have sold it to the present owner, or perhaps he owned it still in 1900.

The "Lawrence" is not a mistranscription, it's a clear case of the enumerator being hard of hearing--or not listening at all! His record clearly says Lawrence.  OK, his occupation is indeed that of a stationary engineer.  I am unclear as to what this entailed, but perhaps it means he operated locomotives in the local switch yard but not on runs outside the yard.

Obituary of and Eulogy to William Sutton Gwin

as printed in an unidentified newspaper of the day under the headline:

HON. W. S. GWIN


John Gwin Note:  BRACKETED NOTES IN ITALICS are based on the accounts of the Battle of Selma which follow the obituary.   Bracketed non-italicized notes refer to handwritten corrections no doubt made by some family member.


    On Monday night Sept. 11, just after he had retired, the Hon. Wm Sutton Gwin was suddenly stricken and died before medical aid could reach him; his remains were interred the following Wednesday morning with funeral services conducted by the Right Rev. Walker [NOTE: "Walker" is overwritten in pen and ink as "Weller"] of Talledega.
    Deceased was 65 [NOTE:  "65" is overwritten in pen and ink "68"] years old, was born at Cahaba, Ala., spending his boyhood there and Green Springs; while in the latter place he was a student in the Tutwiler School for boys, but when just sixteen years of age [i.e., after 5 Jun 1864] he left school and gave his service to the Confederacy. He was captured during the battle of Selma [i.e., on Sunday, 2 Apr 1865] and remained a Federal prisoner until the war closed ["the prisoners were kept until Saturday morning, 8 Apr 1865, when they were all paroled and allowed to go wherever they pleased or could"]; he then with his parents came to Shelby and located at Wilsonville where they launched the pioneer lumber industry for this section.
    Mr. Gwin was a man of rare intellect, highly posted on the various topics of interest;  Generous and charitable; His greatest pleasure was in doing those things which brought to his devoted family pleasure and happiness, and next to his family was his fellow man to whom he at all times gave gladly and freely such as was his to give and would alleviate suffering or bring peace and happiness into the homes of others.
    For thirty-two years Mr. Gwin held the office of Justice of the Peace, and not fifty cases did he try during his entire term in office, although had he wished, he could have kept his court almost constantly grinding but preferring arbitration to litigation; his best offices in an effort to arbitrate all differences brought to his attention, he has in this way kept down hundreds of frivilous litigations thereby holding numbers of neighbors and friends at peace.  In conducting his office in this manner, he deprived himself of all fees, but the populace, knowing so well how hard he had striven to maintain peace and happiness in the community, have in turn bestowed upon him a friendship and loyalty such as but few men have enjoyed.
    The entire community is saddened through the loss of this good man, and every one will miss him in many ways, but those to whom death has left its deepest sting are his five sons and three daughters as follows:  Jas. B. Gwin, Selma; Miss Kate K. Gwin, Wilsonville; W. S. Gwin, Jr.,  Little Rock, Ark.;  John L. Gwin and Mrs. L. R. Hebb, Prescott Ariz.;  G. H. Gwin, Manchester, Ga.;  Mrs. G. M. Marable, Talladega; and P. K. Gwin, Tuscaloosa; besides two brothers, a number of grandchildren, nephews, and nieces.

The First Battle of Selma
by Ernest S Campbell, MD, FACS, Graduate, Albert G. Parrish H.S., Selma, Alabama, 1947

Importance of Selma to the Confederacy

Because of its central location, production facilities and rail connections, the advantages of Selma as a site for production of cartridges, saltpetre, powder, shot and shell, rifles, cannon and steam rams soon became apparent to the Confederacy. By 1863 just about every war material was manufactured within the limits of Selma, employing at least ten thousand people within the city limits. The hull was laid for at least one Confederate ironclad, the Tennessee, and millions of dollars worth of army supplies were accumulated in and distributed from Selma.

The following is a verbatim account of the Battle of Selma, excerpted from the book by John Hardy, History of Selma, 1879.* The syntax is his, and I have added a few locations for positions described.

While growing up in Selma I explored the breastworks east of the Range Line Road, played in a house in Burnsville where Lt. Gen. N.B. Forrest is reputed to have pulled a marauding Federal soldier out from under a bed where he promptly shot him, sawed lumber from cypress trees from the Blue Girth Swamp containing metal from the battle, and witnessed the salvage of guns from the adjacent Alabama River. I call this essay "The First Battle of Selma" because there has since been another battle, almost 100 years later, that may have been much more significant in the minds of men, the March across the Pettus Bridge in 1964.


The First Battle of Selma

"As a matter of precaution, it was thought best to fortify Selma; the work was put in charge of Col. Ledbetter, aided by Capt. Lernier, an experienced engineer, who, with the labor of a large number of slaves collected from the planters of the surrounding country, succeeded in the construction of a bastioned line around the city, from the mouth of Beech Creek, on the river, to the mouth of Valley Creek, where the same empties into the river, about four miles in length.

Previous Attempts on Selma

The capacities and importance of Selma, in its relation to the Confederate movement, had been notorious in the North, and too great to be overlooked by the Federal authorities, as early as 1862.  But to reach it with a Federal force baffled the ingenuity of the federal Generals.  As the place grew in importance, the greater the necessity to reach it with a Federal force.  Gen. Sherman first made an effort to reach it, but after advancing as far as Meridian, within one hundred and seven miles, retreated to the Mississippi River; Gen. Grierson, with a cavalry force from Memphis, was intercepted and returned; Gen. Rousseau made a dash in the direction of Selma, but was misled by his guides and struck the railroad forty miles east of Montgomery.

Wilson's Preparations

Finally, in the winter of 1865, through the advice of Gen. Thomas, who commanded the department of Tennessee, Gen. Grant selected Maj. Gen. J. H. Wilson, a prudent and sagacious officer, for the task of capturing Selma, with an independent command. After a careful canvas of the question, Gen. Wilson selected from the Federal army of the west, a force of about thirteen thousand men, and encamped them at Gravel Springs on the Tennessee River. After a thorough drilling and equipment unsurpassed by any cavalry force of the world, on the evening of the 17th of March, 1865, this splendidly mounted and equipped force was ordered to march on the next morning. The Tennessee River was crossed, the force composed of the first, second and third divisions, commanded respectively by Gens. McCook, Long, and Upton, were in motion to strike a blow that would be felt by the Confederacy. After burning the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and destroying the iron works in Tannehill and Montevallo, this force moved on through the mountainous country of Alabama, and with scarcely any opposition, until the first day of April, at Ebenezer Church, near Dixie Station, on the Alabama and Tennessee railroad, 27 miles from Selma, Gen. Forrest made a stand; where it is said that Gen. Forrest and the brave Capt. Taylor, of the 17th Indiana Regiment had a running fight of over 300 yards, resulting in the death of Taylor---Forrest falling back upon Selma, pressed hard. On the night of the 10th of April, this force camped at Plantersville, 22 miles from Selma.  Here Gen. Wilson was informed by spies from Selma, that it was the intention of Dick Taylor (Commander of Confederate forces) to evacuate the place and make no defense---that Forrest himself advised it, and for a time led Gen. Wilson to believe he would meet with no resistance at Selma. (Wilson's headquarters house is still standing in Plantersville).

On Sunday morning, the 2nd of April, 1865, this force was again in motion, the advance arriving in view of the city about twelve o'clock, and Gen. Wilson himself arriving about 1 o'clock. The guns mounted, the movement of soldiers, and various other demonstrations inside the breastworks, were too plain to leave resistance in doubt, and by four o'clock, the whole force was in position to make the attack.  Gen C. C. Andrews, who was in the force, gives the following account of the assault on the city by Gen.Wilson.

"He directed Gen. Long to assault the works by moving diagonally across the road upon which his troops were posted, while Gen. Upton, at his request, with a picked force of three hundred men, was directed to penetrate the swamps upon his left (Blue Girth Swamp), break through line covered by it, and turn the garrison's right, the balance of his division to conform to the movement. The signal for the advance was to be the discharge of a single gun from Rodney's battery, to be given as soon as Upton's turning movement had developed itself.

Before that plan could be executed, and while waiting for the signal to advance, Gen. Long was informed that a strong force of Confederate cavalry had been skirmishing with his rear, and threatened a general attack upon his pack train and led horses. He had left a force of six companies well posted at Valley Creek (northwest of the city), in anticipation of that movement. Fearing this affair would compromise the assault upon the main portion, Long determined to make the assault at once; and without waiting for the signal gave the order to advance.

His command was formed in line of battle, dismounted, the 17th Indiana Mounted Infantry on the right, and next, from right to left, the 123rd Illinois, the 98th Illinois Mounted Infantry, the 4th Ohio Calvary, and the 4th Michigan Calvary, comprising 1500 officers and men. They had to charge across open ground 600 yards to the works, exposed to the fire of artillery and musketry, and that part of the line they were to attack was manned by Armstrong's brigade, regarded as the best of Forrest's corps, and numbering 1500 strong.  Long's division sprang forward in an unfaltering manner. Its flanks had some difficulty crossing a ravine and marshy soil, but in less than 15 minutes it had swept over the works and driven the Confederates in confusion toward the city. But the loss was considerable, and among the wounded was Gen. Long himself, who was temporarily succeeded in command by Col. Mint.

Gen. Wilson arrived on that part of the field after the works were carried.  He at once notified Upton of the success, directed Col. Minty to form Logan's division for a new advance, ordered Col. Vail, commanding the 17th Illinois to place his own regiment and the 4th United States Cavalry, Lieut. O'Connel, and the Board of Trade Battery, Capt. Robinson commanding, and renew the attack. The garrison had occupied a new line, but partially finished, on the edge of the city.  A bold charge by the 4th United States Cavalry was repulsed, but it rapidly reformed on the left.  It was now quite dark.  Upton's division advancing at the same time, a new charge was made by the 4th Ohio, 17th Indiana, and 4th Cavalry, dismounted. The troops, inspired by the wildest enthusiasm, swept everything before them, and penetrated the city in every direction. Upton's division met with little resistance. During the first part of the action, the Chicago Board of Trade Battery occupied a commanding position and steadily replied to the garrison guns."

The loss in Long's division was forty killed and two hundred sixty wounded. Among the latter were Gen. Long himself and Cols. Miller, McCormick, and Briggs.  Gen. Wilson's force engaged and in supporting distance was nine thousand men and eight guns.

The garrison fought with great coolness and skill.  Forrest was reported to have been engaged personally in two or three romantic combats, and he, with Gens. Armstrong, Roddy, and Adams, and a number of men, escaped by the Burnsville road (south-east of Blue Girth Swamp), who were followed by a party of Upton's division until long after midnight, capturing four guns and thirty prisoners.

The fruits of Wilson's victory were thirty-one field guns and one thirty-pounder Parrott, two thousand seven hundred prisoners, including fifty officers, and an immense amount of stores of all kinds.

As soon as the troops could be assembled and got into camp, Brevet Brig. Gen. Winslow was assigned to the command of the city, with orders from Gen. Wilson "to destroy everything that could benefit the Confederate cause."

Thus we have the Federal account of the capture of Selma, and it scarcely does the subject justice.

While matters were going on thus on the outside, it would be well for us to look on and see what was taking place on the inside.  Gen. Wilson's visit had been expected for ten days, but the Confederate forces were so scattered over the country, and especially the cavalry part of it, that to centre a force at Selma was utterly impossible. Gen. Forrest's forces had been reduced to a mere handful, and really, the only reliable force in reach was Gen. Armstrong's, numbering only about fifteen hundred. There were a large number of "boom-proof" officers and stragglers in the city, upon whom little reliance could be placed.  But on Saturday it was determined that the place should be defended. Everybody who could walk was called upon to go to the breastworks, with whatever arms could be procured.  Squads of armed men were traversing the streets and examining various buildings for soldiers to go to the breastworks, sparing nothing that wore pantaloons, and by Sunday, 12 o'clock, there were collected in the ditches around the city, about four thousand persons, not more than two thousand of them reliable, to meet a force of nine thousand of the flower of the Federal army, and equipped in a manner unexampled in the history of ancient or modern armies.  Confederate Gen. Dick Taylor left the city as fast as a steam engine could take him, about twelve o'clock on Sunday, leaving command of the city divided between Gens. Forrest, Adams and Armstrong, and as the latter had control of the only real force in the fight, was gallant enough to meet the invaders at the point of the first attack, on the Summerfield road, and Long's division felt the result.  A large number of the women and children had been sent out of the city.  A number of the quartermasters, too, had gone with their supplies, mostly to Meridian.  The assault was made, and no one who comprehended affairs could doubt the result. The Federal forces, with the flush of victory, entered the city in the hour of night, and terrible scenes of plunder and outrages were witnessed in every direction.

At the breast works, the Confederates fought with all the vigor their arms and experience allowed.

About ten o'clock Sunday night, the first house set on fire was the three story brick building on the corner of Water and Broad Streets, the third story of which had been used by the Confederates for a year or so, as a guard house for Union men and skulkers from the Confederate service.  It was said this house was set on fire by a man by the name of Gibson, who had been imprisoned in it.  From this house, others along Broad Street took fire and were consumed. Next day, the Arsenal and the Naval Foundry and all the places of manufacture were set on fire by an order from Gen.Winslow, Commander of the Post, in charge. The fire continued to rage until about Tuesday night, by which time the city was nearly destroyed. During this time there was scarcely a house in the city, either private or public, but what had been sacked by the Federal soldiers. The small contents of private stores were most wantonly destroyed, and by Friday morning there was but little of any kind of property left in the place.

The 2,700 prisoners, comprising almost every man in the city, were huddled together in a large stockade just north of the Selma and Meridian railroad track, on the east of the Range Line Road, near where the Matthews cotton factory now stands.This stockade was built and had been used by the Confederates. In this pen, in which a dry place scarcely large enough for a man to lay down could not be found, were the prisoners kept until Saturday morning, when they were all paroled and allowed to go wherever they pleased or could. On the 6th of April Gen. Wilson met Gen. Forrest at Cahaba, for the purpose of arranging for an exchange of prisoners, but no definite arrangement was effected.

On the 9th, Wilson's forces commenced evacuating the place by crossing the river on pontoons, and by the 10th his entire force had succeeded in crossing the river. Thousands of negroes had flocked to the Federal camps, of all ages and sex, and after crossing the river, four regiments were organized out of the able-bodied black men in and around the Federal camps. To these regiments proper officers were assigned, and those unable to bear arms were driven from the camps.   Gen. Wilson, in speaking of these regiments said, "that in addition to subsisting themselves upon the country, they would march thirty-five miles in a day, and frequently forty." About four hundred wounded Federal soldiers were left behind in Selma, all huddled together in the different stories of the present hardware store of John K. Goodwin.

A scene of utter ruin was presented. The commons around the city were almost covered with dead and crippled animals, and the people without means to move them. A meeting of the few citizens of the place was held, all went to work and in a few days all the dead animals had been hauled and thrown into the river. Subsistence was collected from the spoils and wastes of provisions, thus enabling the people to get a scanty living.

It is due to both Gen Wilson and Gen. Winslow, to say, that in no instance, after Sunday night, when they were applied to for protection to person and private property, but that protection was readily given, and by Tuesday evening almost every private family in the city had a soldier or soldiers stationed on their premises.

Taking into consideration the severity of the battle, and the overwhelming number of Federal forces, the small loss of the Confederates was remarkable. Of the 4000 persons in the battle, there were not more than twenty Confederates killed, and scarcely as many wounded.

The federal wounded remained in the city for about two weeks, when Gen. Steele came up the river with gunboats and transports and removed them to Mobile.

With the fall of Selma and the evacuation of Richmond, Va., on the same day, Sunday, 2nd April, 1865, did the Confederacy fall."

So nice to hear from you again.  Now let me see what I do remember about the Gwins from my parents.  I have been sitting here reading all your wonderful work.

I saw the name Self.  A Self family lived next door to my grand parents William T. Tinney and wife Martha Jane Mashburn, Tinney.

The Tinney family cemetery is located next to the Wilsonville City Cem.  When you enter the Wilsonville cemetery through the brick entrance way, you will see my Tinney cemetery area immediately to the left, about one-half acre maybe. It is now fenced and gated.

The Selfs lived next to the Tinneys who were on the right. The Daniels lived on the left of the Self home. The Daniel home and the Self home are no longer there.

At age 83 I am not getting about very fast.

Well, my grandfather Hugh Elzer Smith and wife Louisa E. Lowery Smith moved to Wilsonville in 1900 from Fayetteville, Ala., in Talladega Co.

A Gwin family lived at the corner of McGowan Ferry Rd (Now called McGowan Rd). and Highway #25.  Entrance to cem. there is just across the highway.

The front entrance you need to drive on the road leading out of the city towards Fourmile community.

Pap's first home after moving from Fayetteville was just across the highway.

I will send you some pictures of what I have.

(This old beautiful home is now gone.  A tornado damaged the roof area and the young whippersnapper who owned the property had it torn down.

My mother, Ethel Smith, was 6 years old when they moved to Wilsonville.

Pa sold his #1 home there and bought home #2--I would suspect from the Self family?

I have a picture of that home that was in family pictures.  There are several on the front porch area.  I do not know who they are. (I will send you a copy by E-mail.)  I  remember when the home looked like that.  My Grandmother Louisa E. Lowery died there soon after living there in 1910.  The children were young and wanted to not live there any longer.

Next Papa bought the Jessie Taylor homeplace across the Southern railroad there in town.  Drive down Hebb Rd. about one-half mile.  The home sits off the road.  There was a nice long driveway to the street.  Had nice oak trees lining the sides.  The Taylor home was large.  I do not know but I would suspect it was in need of a new roof?  At that time Papa removed the nice two bedrooms on the left and turned the area into porch area that he also let extend to the front door area.  Papa fixed an upstairs bedroom for the boys' room.  Oh, I have wonderful memories of the Smith home and the Tinney home.

Let me stop writing and see what kind of pictures are still on my moniter that I can send you now. Wilsonville is a small town.  But we are full of history.  Genealogy is my hobby, so I maybe can tell you a bit about the place.  I lost my husband to Parkinson's disease March 29, 2002.  We waited upon him here at our residence.  I have two sons only: John Stanley lives at Gardendale, Ala.; Jerry Rand lives here next to me.  All my Tinneys are dead except me.  The Smiths are all dead with exception of Herbert.  He lives in Birmingham, Ala.

I will enjoy trying to help you.

Love always.    Mary Elizabeth Tinney, Hill

Do you know the address, or can you give me directions to the place on a map?  I'm going there in July and have NO IDEA where to start looking. Your e.mail is a light in the darkness for me!  I do know that Grandpa Sutt and Grandma Ida are buried there, and I've been there to see their graves and have pictures, but I'd love to know much more:  What did he do?  Where did they live?

Actually I do know quite a bit, all of which is located at my page for them at http://www.zianet.com/jmcdgwin/GwinWmSutton.htm.

Does this mean that my g-grandpa Sutt lived near the church, too?

I saw the information on the website about 4 years ago. It's all amazing. A lot of my information has changed that I need to update. The computer says I'm married to Roberto Suarez. He was my first husband and is the father of my son Robert Ray Suarez who is now 28 and is on the internet site www.IrelandAG.org if want to add a picture. There are pictures of him and his wife.

My current husband is the one you have on the internet. His name is Jose L Rodriguez. Goes by Joe. We have been married 13 years. He's a pastor and also works for the Medley Police Dept.

My son Robert as you will see is a missionary to Ireland and also an ordained Minister. If you need any further information, let me know.

I love the site and seeing the pictures of my dad and Uncle George in the farm. And of my grandmother Valera Gwin who passed many years ago. I remember my dad's brothers Earl and Elmore both had HUGE barber shop mustaches like you. That's what I remember the most about them. I loved seeing your picture and seeing your mustache. Looks great. It was great talking with you. Hope to again soon.
