We have not yet found any indicators that this family and ours are related; however, we believe that this is a good possibility. Double-fifth Cousin Mike Walker is doing followup on this information.

Researching:

DOBBINS, WHITAKER families in WV, VA, MO, KS, OK (and all points in between and beyond),

STROUD, FETTERS, MEEK, DENTON in KY, MO, KS;

ALMER, KLUNDT from South Russia and Germany, SD, ND, MT (between and beyond),

MELICK, DARLING and BELLEVILLE in OH, IN, MI (also between and beyond).

Also seeking living descendants and info on GWIN family in VA, NC, TN, IL, MO, KS--oldest known ancestor on this line is Elias GWIN who was married first to Rebecca Beckham in Warran Co., NC, then to Tabitha WEATHERFORD in TN. After Tabitha's death around 1830, Elias and his 10 children moved to Macoupin Co, IL. Sons, James H. GWIN (my gg grandfather) and Elias GWIN (also married into the STROUD family) moved to Bourbon Co., KS.

There is a schoolhouse still standing, though probably not for long due to Highway improvements, on the old GWIN homestead one mile north of Garland Corner on South Hwy. 69 near Fort Scott, KS named after James H. GWIN. It has also been known as the Drywood 4-H Building. Trying to obtain info on this building too.

Particularly looking for info on Carrol DOBBINS who married Amelia H. PERKINS prior to 1847, possibly in Vernon Co., MO. Amelia was living in Lawrence, KS in 1870 (I believe). Not sure what happened with this marriage. Carroll DOBBINS is not listed with her in 1870 list of settlers in Lawrence, KS. Divorce? Death? Amelia may have remarried in Douglas Co., KS around 1890 or so.

Also seeking any living descendants of any of these lines. Please contact me by email or snail mail to determine possible family connection. Don't be shy!!Willing to share our information with anyone willing to share theirs with us. :-)

John and Jim,

I took a little time tonight to work online on William Gwin whom we found in the 1850 and 1860 Macoupin Co., IL censuses (censi?).

There is a George Gwin family on the same page as William in 1850. George was born abt 1788 in VA. I decided to google for him and got this:

GWIN, BECKHAM, WEATHERFORD:

Subj: TN Query Date: 1997-11-28
From: DarleneA@aol.com
My gggg-grandfather, Elias GWIN married first Rebeccah BECKHAM in Warren Co., NC. Rebeccah must have died before 1813 or so as he married Tabitha WEATHERFORD, daughter of Money WEATHERFORD about that time and they lived in Bedford Co., TN for about 20 years. Tabitha died about 1830 and Elias GWIN took his/their 10 children to Macoupin Co, IL where her mother and brothers had moved around 1820-ish after Money died.
I have been told the Bedford Co., TN, courthouse records burned before the Civil War. Is there another source for records from this area???
Any help appreciated.
DarleneA@aol.com
**********************************************
These two posts appear to be from the same person, but the second has some additional details.

I have seen this Elias Gwin connection in Virginia a lot on the web. I gather either he isn't in our lines, or isn't related at all. Do you guys know anything about him? (Incidentally, I am also related to the Meek family, most likely. Joe Meek, the mountain man was the son of a Walker woman, and also probably the cousin of Joseph Reddeford Walker and Joel Walker, two other famous mountain men.)

Still looking!

Hi Mr. Gwin -
Got your message. Have you had time to check my posted Gwin info? I am related to Elias Gwin who traveled from TN to Macoupin Co., IL, when he lost his wife, Tabitha Weatherford, daughter of Money Weatherford. Elias's son, William Gwin, was my next ancestor in line, then on to William's son, James H. Gwin, who moved to Bourbon Co., KS, and had my great-grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Gwin. Does any of that ring any bells? I really don't know much about that line other than names. Any info you might have to share (or pictures) would be greatly appreciated.

Item: 16 Oct 1850 Census of Macoupin Co., IL

[John M. Gwin Note: The photo of the census page below was sent to me by Cousin Mike Walker who suggests that the William Gwin in line 37 below could be the firstborn son of our subject, William and Susanna Gwin, and I agree, since:
(1) his age is right, according to the above-referenced 1830 census,
(2) his name is right (to be a "junior"),
(3) his state of birth is right,
(4) his current place of residence would make sense if, for example, he had decided to "agree with Grandpa Isham" and move north to avoid his dad's and uncle's attractions to slavery, and
(5) the places of birth of his children fit.
Mike's theory seems to me to be very plausible, and I think we should pursue it.]

[John M. Gwin Note: I have transcribed the GWIN entries on the following page from the

16 Oct 1850 U.S. Census of Macoupin County, Illinois,
to allow web searchers to find these names.]

John Gwin's Comments
5/5 George Gwin 62 1788 m farmer . Va . This person is currently unknown to us; however, because he is two houses away from whom we believe to be our William Gwin, he is most likely a relative.

Laney Gwin 52 1798 f . . Ten . This person is currently unknown to us. Her place of birth, however, strongly suggests that her husband, George, moved to TN from VA, met and married her there, then moved to IN--generally the same route followed by Isham and Mary Canterbury Gwin.

Rachael Gwin 23 1827 f . . Ind CNROW .

Nancy Gwin 11 1839 f . . Ind . .

George L. Gwin 8 1842 m . . Ind . .
7/7 William Gwin 38 1812 m farmer 620 Ten CNROW This is the William Gwin (Jr.) whom Mike Walker has theorized could be the son of William and Susanna Gwin (and grandson of Isham and Mary C. Gwin) as explained above. His estimated year of birth, 1812, is the same year John Gwin and Jane Walker married and the year before William and Susanna joined the Miller's Cove Baptist Church (see item #3 above). Based on the places of birth of these Gwin children of William and Jane in this very census, these Gwins were living in Alabama in 1833 and in Illinois by 1837.

Jane M. Gwin 37 1813 f . . NC CNROW Jane evidently married William in the early 1830's, no doubt in Alabama. If Rebecca is their firstborn, Jane would've been about 20 when Rebecca was born and therefore about 19 when she and William married (ca. 1832).

Rebecca L. Gwin 17 1833 f . . Ala ASWTY That this daughter is born in Alabama lends further credence to Mike's theory, since William and Susanna are in Alabama for the 1820 and 1830 censuses.

James H. Gwin 13 1837 m . . Ill ASWTY That James H. Gwin is born in Illinois means--if Mike's theory is correct--that William and Jane moved their family north to Illinois between 1833 and 1837. The following is no doubt he in the 1880 census, the only questionable item being his mother's POB:

Redfield Herald -- November 1906 - February 1907

Bourbon County's Redfield Herald was a weekly newspaper. The first issue, dated April 8, 1905, was published on Saturdays, with W. E. Stockmyer [referred to as Edd], as Editor. In October 1905, when Mr. and Mrs. Stockmyer left Kansas for New Mexico, publication changed from Saturdays to Fridays and J. Frank Pool replaced Mr. Stockmyer as Editor. At that point, the paper was considerably expanded; in addition to community news, coverage also included courthouse news and property transfers/deeds. Another editorial change occurred in October 1906 when Mr. Pool retired and Harry E. Luman became Editor. These extracts have been copied as accurately as possible, but errors may still occur. Minor printing errors have been corrected, but otherwise the information is presented as it originally appeared. Please consult the individual reel to verify an item. I do not have any further information about these individuals or families. Contributed by Ellen Knowles Bisson (thebissons@worldnet.att.net)

Dec 28, 1906 -- pg. 2, col. 1
Died: Mrs. James Gwinn died at her home west of town and was buried Tuesday at the Large cemetery. She had a very severe attack of pneumonia fever. She leaves an aged husband, three boys and two girls - all married.

Kansas One-Room School House Project
Gwin -- Bourbon Co., KS
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Kansas Heritage Server would like to thank Darlene (DarleneA@aol.com) for contributing this material.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have learned that my great-great grandfather, James W. Gwin, had a schoolhouse named after him in the Godfrey neighborhood of Bourbon Co., near Ft. Scott. I assume it was of the one-room variety but have been unable to get info on it as yet. It was said to be built on the old family homestead in Godfrey. If anyone has any info on this, please submit not only to me, but to Lynn and Rene too. Someone on one of the KS lists suggested I write to the Superintendent of Schools for Bourbon Co. in Ft. Scott, but I have yet to do that. It is a possibility though.

I am collecting information from cousins who come from Harry Newton Gwin who was a son of Arthur and Mary Jane Gwin.  I will have 11 pages from my cousin Shirley in Garnett, Kansas soon.
 
I am still trying to find Arthur Gwin's or Mary jane Porter's parents.  If you have any information about that could you please send it to me I would greatly appreciate it.
 
Thanks for emailing me!
 
Love and Light,

I am the daughter of Boyd Bernard Gwin, youngest son of Merle Dennis Gwin, grandson of Francis Edward Gwin, great-grandson of Francis Curtis Gwin.  You have none of Boyd's and his oldest brother Elmer's geneology. May I fill you in?  I knew many of the Gwins who were Merle Dennis Gwin's siblings---after MANY trips to Washington and Morrowville, Kansas.  Have also been in contact with the family of Harry Newton Gwin, another son of Francis Curtis and Ann Somerville/Summervile.

I'm very interested in the early Pennsylvania history of Arthur Gwin and wife Jane/Jana Porter.

I left this message in your guest book---but thought I'd also send it to you this way.

Thank you---Nancy Gwin

Subject: Geneaology of the Gwin family...

Dear Mr. Gwin:
I discovered your website as I was researching to fill in the Gwin branches of my family tree. My gg grandfather was Alexander Gwin (b. Dec. 1849 in Illinois - d. 1937 in Oklahoma) who married Harriet A. Givens (b. Aug. 1854 in Berry's Lick, Butler, Kentucky - d.1940 in Oklahoma). According to the 1850 and 1860 Censuses, Alexander's father was John Gwin. My dilemma comes from each census listing different places of birth. Same is true for his wife Mary Gwin. The 1850 Census lists Tennessee as his place of birth and the 1860 Census lists Alabama.

I felt a sense of hope that our Gwins are connected when I saw the 1850 Census image on your website. The 1850 Census that I have lists John Gwin and Alexander Gwin (my ggg - gg grandfathers) on October 17, 1850 (the day after the census on your website) in MacOupin, Illinois. To the best of my knowledge, John Gwin was born about 1824 in Tennessee (or Alabama). Could my John Gwin be related to your William Gwin or others? There seems to have been many Gwins in the MacOupin, Illinois area.

Then I came across the table on your website that lists the Gwins on the 1880 Census of Drywood, Bourbon, Kansas: my John Gwin was listed on the 1860 Census of Drywood, Bourbon, Kansas with children Hulda, William, Alexander, Arrena, Octavo and Orvil (Orril). Could #3 and #7 on that chart on your website be the same Arrena and Octavo (Octava) that would be my gg aunts?

Alexander Gwin is found on the 1880 Census in Green, Lawrence, Missouri with his wife, Harriet. Octava is listed under his name and as his sister. I wonder if John Gwin died in Kansas. 

I would greatly appreciate any thoughts you have on this Gwin family. If you are interested, I will keep you informed on what I find in my search. I am new to genealogy, so any advice is welcome! Many blessings to you and your family...I enjoyed your website and will visit often! Thank you in advance for any time you give to this search.

In Christ,
Tiffany Matthews

John,
 
I came upon your website pertaining to the Gwin's and need some help placing these two guys.  They were in William and Jane Gwin's household in 1850 in Macoupin Co, IL.  I'm attaching a family sheet including documentation.
 
I would appreciate corresponding with you on these families.  I have corresponded with Darlene Almer but think I have a bit more actual documentation.
 
I look forward to hearing from you.

At the bottom of the pages, it lists Raymond L. Streeter as the producer; however, I'm doing this for him and his family.  He is the actual descendant of Elias Gwin.

James H. Guin was born in Macoupin county, Ill., on December 23, 1835, and died at the home of his
daughter in Crawford county, Kan., June 16, 1910, at the age of 76 years 2 months, 21 days. He was
married to Eliza Mayberry October 1857. In 1861 he accepted Christ as his savior and became a member
of the Methodist church, in which faith he continued until death. In 1866 he moved with his family to
Kansas and located six miles south of this city, where he has since continued his residence. His life
companion was called to the better world a few years ago. He leaves five children and several
grandchildren to mourn their loss. The funeral service was conducted Sunday at 1 p.m. from the Pleasant
View school house by Rev. L. G. Wood of the Brethren church. James Guin was well known throughout
the county and was highly respected by all who knew him, which was evidenced by the large concourse
of sympathizing friends who attended the funeral. He was a loyal citizen, a good neighbor, a kind father
and a devoted Christian. May these characteristics be held in sacred memory to help and bless the living.
His last request was that his grandsons act as pallbearers and bear his body to its resting place, which
request was carried out in full, and interment was made at Pleasant View cemetery by the side of his
companion.

Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Meyers, of 623 South Barbee, passed away at Mercy Hospital this

and one sister, Mrs. Rena Evans, of Radley, Kas, all of whom will attend the funeral. Also
the deceased leaves one granddaughter and three grandsons. One daughter, Mrs. Blanche
Fetters, is deceased.
Mrs. Meyers was a highly respected and a kind and loving mother. She was possessed of
a strong and charitable disposition and bore her long illness with fortitude and cheerfulness,
with always a kind word for those about her and with due solicitation for their comforts.
Mrs. Meyers was about 55 years of age.
The funeral will take place at the Cheney Chapel Friday, September 28, at 2 p.m.,

The funeral of Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Meyer was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from
the Cheney chapel, 119 South Main St. conducted by Rev. L. G. Wood, of the Brethren

Rev. Wood took his text from Psalms 23:1: "Yea, though I walk thru the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort
me."
A trio consisting of Mrs. Thurman Orr, Vern Dixon, and L. G. Wood sang the songs,
"Beautiful Garden of Prayer."; "Where the Gates Swing Outward Never", and "I Need Thee
Every Hour."
Among the many floral offerings was a beautiful double spray of snap dragons inscribed

**Note by Darlene Dobbins Almer, Great Granddaughter of Elizabeth Meyers - Notably
absent from this obituary are the children of daughter, Blanche Fetters - Claude, Cleota, Opal
and Louise (my Mother, Cleota, and her siblings). I don't know who provided information
for the newspaper but for whatever reason, they left out these Grandchildren as survivors.
They apparently had already been sent to Oklahoma to the Brown household (relatives by
marriage to the Gwin family).

Fred and Wood Streeter, two well known Garland men, yesterday afternoon completed a
deal for the purchase of 480 acres of the old Gallagher hay ranch near Hammond. They were
here yesterday with Alex Mason of Fulton through whom the deal was consumated, and
returned home last night after completing the purchase of the land. The Gallagher ranch is
one of the well known tracts of Bourbon County, and has been owned by that family for a
number of years.

FRED A. STREETER
Funeral services for Fred A. Streeter, 88, born in a government building on the Plaza,
where his parents took refugee from Price's raiders, and a lifelong resident, were held at 1:30
o'clock yesterday afternoon at the Konantz chapel. The chapel was well filled, many from
the Garland and Godfrey communities attending the services, as well as friends from Devon
and other points in the county. Mr. Streeter's family was one of the early pioneer families of
the county, homesteading seven miles south of Fort Scott.
The widow is the former Ida Guinn, after whose family the Guinn school south of Fort
Scot was named. Much of the original data for C. W. Goodlander's "Early Days of Fort
Scott: was supplied by Mr. Streeter.
The services were conducted by the Rev. W. F. Keesecker, who paid a tribute to the long
and useful life of the deceased, and to the pioneer spirit which built the community and
established traditions of self-reliance and honor which still live. Lloyd Wright and Earl
Konantz sang solos, accompanied by Mrs. Doris Jones.
Interment was in the family lot in Large cemetery south of the city. Pallbearers were
Clyde Lee, Leander Colvin, Ernest Sharpless, Ray Simmons, Claude Piper and Jim Neal.

SCOTT FELL DEAD
_________________________
Death Came Very Suddenly to Wm. E.
Scott This Morning, Just After He
Had Been Shaved
__________________________
Death came very suddenly this morning to William E. Scott, as the result of heart failure,
just after Joe Long, a barber at the Sam Rudkin shop, had finished shaving him. Although
he appeared indisposed this morning, nobody suspected his condition was serious,
especially in view of the fact that he laughed and joked with those in the barber shop. He
carried on a conversation with Joe Long while the latter was shaving him, and seemed to be
in fairly good spirits. Just after Long had finished shaving him and was powdering his face,
Mr. Scott commenced to slip from the barber chair. Mr. Long and others present saw he
had suffered some kind of a stroke, and succeeded in preventing him from coming to the
floor heavily. The extremities became cold within a very brief space of time. It is thought
Mr. Scott was dead by the time he struck the floor.
Dr. E. B. Payne was called immediately and it took but a short time to determine that
Mr. Scott was dead. The Cheney pulmotor was called just after Mr. Scott had suffered the
stroke and although it was brought at once and immediately put into use, it had no effect.
Mr. Scott, who was a man of 47 years of age, had been a resident of this county for
many years, having for the greater part of the time made his home in Godfrey and that
neighborhood. He removed to this city from Godfrey about three years ago and took charge
of the restaurant at No. 9 Market street, which he has since conducted.
The deceased is survived by a wife, Mrs. Cora Scott, and three daughters, Ida, Ina, and
Iva.
Mr. Scott had always been in good health until about two weeks ago, when he became
indisposed, probably as the result of over work. He was a man who would persist in
working as long as there was any task to be performed, and this fact might have had

something to do with the fatal stroke which he suffered this morning.
About two weeks ago, Mr. Scott became indisposed, and his wife and daughters, who
had been helping him at the restaurant, tried to prevail upon him not to work at nights, as
had been his practice. During the past few days, his condition seeming to be worse, he had
finally been induced to quit working for several nights and he had not worked since Monday
night. Last night he told his daughters he felt considerably better and he insisted on working
all night. However, his daughters would not allow him to do so, and so he finally retired,
with the promise that he would be sure to be down to the restaurant today to help them
through the dinner hour.
True to his promise, Mr. Scott came down town this morning and was preparing for the
days work. He told the barbers at the Rudkin shop that he was feeling considerably better
today than he had for several days and this was borne out by the fact that he laughed and
joked as usual.
Mr. Scott, according to the statement of a physician who had been attending him, had
been afflicted with heart trouble for more than a year. The physician said this morning that
when he examined Mr. Scott about a year ago, he found that his heart was missing about
every third beat. He advised him not to work at nights.
The funeral of Mr. Scott will be held tomorrow afternoon at three o'clock from the
Christian church. Rev. W. Y. Allen officiating, and interment will be in Evergreen cemetery.
The services will be in charge of the M. W. A. of which the deceased had for a long time
been a member. The pall bearers will be chosen from among the members of the three
lodges to which the deceased belonged, the M. W. A., Red Men, and Knights and Ladies of
Security.
