Text of History of Washington County, Vol. 2
John M. Gwin Comments
Nature seems to have inended that man shall enjoy a season of rest in the evening of life.  In his younger years he is full of hope, energy, and ambition, and later his activities are guided by the wisdom and experience which his former years have brought.  If his labors are well directed, he can attain the competence that will enable him in the evening of life to rest from former labor.  Such has been the record of William S. Bartholomew, now a retired farmer of Washington, who for twenty-two years has made his home in this city although he did not dispose of his farm property consisting of three hundred and twenty-threee acres of land, until about five years ago.  Since 1845 he has made his home in Washington County, Iowa.

For his second wife, Mr. Bartholomew chose Mrs. Elizabeth Adams, the widow of Moses Adams and a daughter of Richard W. and Nancy (Wadkinks) Gwin.  She was born April 20, 1845, in a little town then called Flint Hills, but now Burlington, Iowa. 

Her father was a native of Chester, England, and a son of William Gwin, who was likewise born in Chester.  Coming to America, he spent his last days in Tennessee.  He at one time owned a number of slaves while living in the south, but, becoming convinced that the practice of slavery was wrong, he gave his bondsmen their freedom.
Wadkinks = Watkins

Richard W. Gwin was born in east TN; it was Richard's grandpa or GREAT-grandpa who was from Europe.  Isham was b. in VA.

William = Isham


Isham spent his last days in Orange Co., IN, not TN.


His wife bore the maiden name of Arteberry.


Arteberry
= Canterbury

Their son, Richard W. Gwin, came to America when he was fourteen
years of age and was graduated from the college at Nashville, Tennessee.

Prior to his marriage he removed to Orange Co., Indiana, and subsequently became a resident of Sangamon County, Illinois, whence he went to Des Moines County, Iowa, and arrived in Washington County in 1846.  Iowa was still under territorial government at that time, and many sections of the state were entirely unsettled and unimproved.  Mr. Gwin entered a large tract of land upon which he resided until 1856, when he removed to Kansas, being a resident of that state during the troublous times which preceded the Civil War when the territory was a point of contest between the pro-slavery and antislavery parties.

Mr. Gwin was a personal friend of John Brown, the noted abolitionist.

Richard W. Gwin was b. in what is now the Wear Valley, Sevier Co., TN, in 1804, to Isham and Mary (Canterbury) Gwin.  I've not seen any indication that he ever left the area to attend college anywhere.  When his parents and other family and neighbors moved to IN btw. 1817 and 1819, he went with them. The data in this bio must have come from someone (Elizabeth?) who did not have a clear understanding of her parents' history.

This paragraph's timeline seems correct.

Whether or not Richard W. Gwin knew John Brown is anyone's guess.  It certainly could have been true.  I don't think that there is any attempt in this bio to embellish the truth, but it is clear that some things did tend to get mixed up between what actually happened and Elizabeth's understanding of what she heard growing up.
He married Nancy Wadkinks, a daughter of John Wadkinks, who was a native of Holland and, on coming to America, settled in Grayson County, Kentucky.  He was a farmer and a country minister of the Hardshell Baptist church.  His wife was Anna Bronk, who was also born in Holland.  Their daughter, Nancy, became the wife of Richard Gwin, and among their children was Mrs. Bartholomew.  The father died at Independence, Kansas, in 1878 at the age of eighty-two years, while the mother passed away in 1879 at the age of eighty-one years.  They were the parents of sixteen children, of whom the following are living: Jane, Sarah, Eliza, John, Elizabeth, Caroline, Richard, Anna, Martin Van Buren, and Walter.  By her former marriage Mrs. Bartholomew had three children:  John K., married Augusta Koogler and died leaving two children--Willa May and Albert W.; Richard W., a resident of Casper, Wyoming, married Frances E. Kesler, and they have one child, Hazel; Matta is the wife of Grant Hampton, living near Oskaloosa, Iowa, and they have one daughter, Mary D.
 1878 = 1885 (see grave photo at top)

Anna Bronk = Mary Swearens

Nancy E. Watkins' gravestone says, "Died Jul. 6, 1885, Aged 78 ys., 3 ms., 21 ds."

[listed as Augusta V. Adams, 74, widowed mother, b. IA/VA/VA, in the 16 Apr 1930 census of Stillwater, Payne Co., OK, and lvg. w/her dau.]


[John M. Gwin Note: From the 1880 census of Washington Co., IA, our John K. Adams is evidently single (no mention of Augusta Virginia) on 16 Jun of 1880 and living with his parents there.  From the History of Washington County, Iowa, Vol.2, above, the person we believe is his son--Alfred W. Adams--is born in Oct of 1881 in NM.  Further, the person we  believe is his daughter--and firstborn child--is born in 1880 in IA!  Was John's and Augusta's a "shotgun" wedding, thus allowing her to be pregnant with Willa and him listed as single in June?  While Augusta lived in English River with her family in 1860 and 1870, I can't find any Kooglers living there in 1880.  We're quite certain that the rest of the data we have on Augusta Koogler Adams is correct, especially that she is the widow of a John Kelsey Adams.  Finding Augusta in 1880 should answer these questions, but we've not yet been able to find her there.  AHA.  Now we've found Augusta and her family in 1856 in Washington Co., Iowa (living very near Elizabeth's sister Mary Gwin Bear)--see above--so we know her family was there then and that these kids had to have grown up together.]

Clearly the Hazel Cottier in each of these three documents is the same as in the other two.
The question is, Is she the same as our 26.01--Hazel N. Adams?

Some Good Addenda

From: "Mike Walker" <walk5755@bellsouth.net>
Date: December 8, 2007
To: "John Gwin" <jmcdgwin@zianet.com>, <JAMESTWALL@aol.com>
Subject: History of Washington County, Iowa

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

"Between the years 1840 and 1846 there was a heavy immigration into the north part of the county. There was probably a larger per cent of increase in that section during that period than in any other part of the county.

"
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!

[John M. Gwin Note: Thanks, Mike! We had next to nothing on
Richard W. Gwin's daughter Elizabeth before today! Your e.mail gave us her married name and enabled us to find her and her family in 1860 and other censuses! Way to go!       :-)      And now in 2010 we found Volume 2 of this book scanned in its entirety at GoogleBooks.com and were able to find bios on several of Elizabeth's other siblings!]

Watkins, as confirmed by (1) the quote from the History of Washington County, Iowa, sent in by Cousin Mike Walker--see above, (2) her age, (3) their place of residence, and (4) the given names of her secondborn son.

How about that. Moses moved his family to Kansas--perhaps to allow his wife to follow her family, then moved them back to the same town in Iowa!
