DISCLAIMER and REQUEST

This collection is a compilation of information I have received from many sources.  After just a few years of genealogizing, I've only recently begun to *PROVE* any of it myself, and I finally feel I'm beginning to get the hang of it! This particular page has much information that I have cleaned up, having documented quite a bit.  My goal is to eventually have it right.  But there are still many gaps and much possibility for error.  I still have no idea how correct some of this information is.  There may be some of you who may be sad or even angry when you read parts of this, because you know that a particular segment is wrong. But I present it here in good faith, so if you have information that substantiates, corroborates, conflicts with, expands, disproves, corrects, or complements any of this information, please share it with me, and I will gladly include your family line,  add your comment, correct the error, and/or present your claim!  Please e.mail me at jmcdgwin@zianet.com.  I use an iMac, so I will probably be able to receive info sent as attachments. Thank you for visiting my site!

Finding Isham:
the trail of information I have followed
that seems to me to indicate and/or prove that
Isham Gwin of Crowson's Cove is my gggg-grandfather


 
Abstract:  Proven facts we know include that in 1807 an Isham Gwin did live in what was then called Crowson's Cove and today is called the Wear Valley, Sevier Co., TN. We know he had a large family and was active in Baptist churches there. We know he and many of his family moved to Crawford, Harrison, and Orange counties, Indiana, sometime before 1820. We know the names of most if not all of his several children, including a daughter named Polly Gwin who married a Thomas Walker of Tuckaleechee Cove, Blount Co., TN. And we know that the man who would become my ggg-grandfather, John Gwin, who later would tell his children and grandchildren that his father's name was Isham, was married on 8 Apr 1812 by Thomas Walker's brother Joseph, a Justice of the Peace, to their sister, Jane Walker, in Tuckaleechee Cove, about six miles west of where this Isham Gwin's land was.


1. In 1999 I became interested in my Gwin genealogy and collection I had inherited from my father's brother, Uncle James Gwin, who listed our farthest-back person in the Gwin line as a Richard Gwin who married Sarah Chesley, both of Jamestown, VA. Uncle James listed as his source The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol. I, p. 706

2. Uncle James further listed Sarah and Richard's son as Isham Gwin who married a "Miss Cleveland". (I was somewhat surprised that the Compendium's source did not know John's mother's first name. I would later learn that she also did not even recall correctly her last name!)  In fact, Isham had married Mary Canterbury in Montgomery Co., VA, in 1783.


3. He listed Isham's son as John Gwin who married Jane Walker in Blount Co., TN, on 8 Apr 1812. I would later find out that all nine known children of this couple had been born in and around Dallas Co., AL.

4. I finally found a copy of the complete set of this Compendium (mentioned in step one above). It became obvious to me that the Compendium's source for all the information on this Gwin line was a Champe McCulloch, husband of John and Jane Gwin's granddaughter, Emma Basset. Emma's mother and John's and Jane's daughter, Sarah Gwin Basset, lived with Emma and Champe for many years, and this seemed to me to give great credence to the Compendium's information.

5. John Gwin, my ggg-grandfather, told census takers in 1850, 1860, and 1870, that he himself was born in 1792 (his gravestone also lists his year of birth as 1792) in Tennessee. Yet some researchers listed him as having been born "in the Carolinas". When I learned that Tennessee did not become a state until 1796, having been part of North Carolina prior to that, it suddenly made sense to me that both were right. 

6. And so I set off for east Tennessee in the summer of 2003 to see what I could find that would confirm Isham's existence as John's dad. I started with John's and Jane's marriage license and certificate in the Blount Co. Courthouse at Maryville. It was right there, and I held it in my hands and had a copy made of it. This proved that they had indeed been married in this county on that date. It also showed that the person who performed the marriage was a Joseph Walker--brother of the bride and Justice of the Peace! (This raises a question which may be answered in no. 15 below.) Further search that day turned up Jane's father, Thomas Walker, as living in Tuckaleechee Cove, Blount Co.

7. After two more days of searching, I came upon a publication by George and Juanita Fox which led me to a copy of the 1807 deed of an Isham Gwin to 249 acres "in Crowson's Cove on the waters of Walden's Creek" in Sevier Co., TN, which deed's microfilm was located at the Cox Museum and Archives in Greeneville (http://www.ggcpl.org/cox.htm). Assuming this to be the same Isham Gwin mentioned in The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy and therefore my gggg-grandpa, I returned home and began to expand my research on Isham.

8. Collecting the deeds to as many residents of 1807 Crowson's Cove as I could find, with the help of Cousin Barb Ward and the abovementioned George Fox, I mapped out the plats of many of those neighbors' farms, thereby showing who lived next-door to whom. Two of these neighbors were a David Denton and a Kinsey Veatch.

9. Some of that research in church records confirmed that Isham Gwin and Kinsey Veatch of Crowson's Cove were very active in starting and serving as elders and preachers in the Wear's Cove--aka Crowson's Cove--Baptist Church and that Isham had been called to preach in a daughter church in Tuckaleechee Cove, Blount Co., some three miles west of and just across the county line from Crowson's Cove. Then Isham and Kinsey disappeared from church records just before 1820.

10. In July 2004, I went back to Seveir County and confirmed the location of Crowson's Cove with the help of Sam Maner and his staff at the Seveir County Genealogy Library in Seveirville. My plat maps lined up almost exactly with the topo map of Wears Cove, formerly Crowson's Cove. I stood on what, some 200 years before, had been Isham's land, and again returned home.

11. That's when Jim Wall contacted me concerning his family of Crawford, Harrison, and Orange counties, Indiana. He descends from an Isham Gwin and his daughter, Elizabeth Gwin, the latter of whom had married a David Denton, and their earliest children had been "born in Tennessee".

12. Jim Wall has sent me copies of scores of documents he has come across in his research, including Isham's will, almost all of which are posted either on this page or elsewhere in this site. Some of his research shows that his ancestor, Isham Gwin, and a neighbor, Kinsey Veatch, had helped start some Baptist churches in southern Indiana just before 1820. The Dentons were there, too.

13. Isham's will provides a list of his children, but my John Gwin is missing from it. Nevertheless, there is a seven-year gap between Isham's 2nd child, Elizabeth (b. 1788 and who married David Denton) and his "third", Virginia Jane, (b. 1795). That tells me that my John Gwin, b. 1792, who claims to be the son of Isham, could easily fit between Elizabeth and Virginia Jane.

14. Furthermore, there is one more person who turned out to be a brother of John: William Gwin , and another, Chesley R. Gwin, who perhaps was also. Both of these are in Dallas Co., AL., at the same time John is. So it could be that all three of these--William, John, and C.R.--fit into the above-mentioned seven-year period.

15. Church records in Tennessee show that Isham may have had a temper, he once confessing to having struck a man in anger. We do know that he was a preacher and church planter, so it would stand to reason that he would want to preside at his own children's weddings. But John and Jane were married, not in a church, but by a secular Justice of the Peace, who--perhaps as if to add insult to injury--was a brother of the bride! Then, when Isham, his ministry partner Kinsey Veatch, and his son-in-law David Denton and their families moved to Indiana a few short years later, John and Jane, William and Susanah, and Chesley and his wife all moved the other direction, to Alabama. Were these moves deliberate attempts to get as far from each other as possible? Was Isham holding a grudge in his anger against his son for not allowing him to preside at their wedding? One document that may support such a theory is the list of children of Isham and Mary that ended up on this webpage; when I first encountered this list, it completely omitted John, William, and Chesley! And yet there is a seven-year gap in the listed children's birth dates where John's and William's dates of birth seem to fit perfectly.

16. Aha. Now the real reason for their separation may have surfaced. Cousin Jim Wall has sent me a copy of a section of a history book of some of the citizens of Keokuk Co., IA, one of whom was William W. Gwin, one of Isham's and Mary's grandsons. In it the author says of this William's grandfather, Isham, that though he owned slaves himself, he came to hate slavery, eventually freeing his slaves and moving to Indiana, a free state, where he would no longer be around this institution. We know that most of his family moved to Indiana with him, including the new families of all his married daughters, but that sons William and John (and maybe Chesley) instead moved their families south to Alabama where they would be allowed to continue holding slaves, as we indeed know at least John and one of John's sons did. Slavery was a hot, divisive issue, and it appears that this was most likely the very reason for the parting of the ways of Isham's family.

17. Perhaps the most compelling data to me is the fact that this same history book states that Isham had TEN children--not just the seven who appear in his will.


18. In summary, we know that in 1807 an Isham Gwin did live in what was then called Crowson's Cove and today is called the Wear Valley, Sevier Co., TN. We know he had a large family and was active in Baptist churches there. We know he and many of his family moved to Crawford, Harrison, and Orange counties, Indiana, sometime before 1820, and that the abovementioned book says the reason was to escape from the presence of the hated institution of slavery. We know the names of most of Isham's children and grandchildren from church minutes in Tennessee and Indiana, Isham's will, and the probate documents that accompanied his will--and that the book states that Isham had TEN children. And we know that the man who would become my ggg-grandfather, John Gwin, who later would tell his children and grandchildren that his father's name was Isham, married Jane Walker in Tuckaleechee Cove, Blount Co., TN, about 5-8 miles west of where this Isham Gwin's land was and where Isham had preached before he left for Indiana.

My Best Guess
at how the family of Isham Gwin looks based on the many pieces of data sent to me from various sources. AGAIN, SOME OF THIS IS UNDOCUMENTED.  THERE ARE MANY MISSING PIECES.  I collected most of this from Jim Wall in the fall and winter of 2004-2005 and present it here in my own format in Feb 2005. Below that is how my page looked prior to Feb 2005.

Clara Foster; [JMG NOTE: The source for all the material in this blue, below, can be found at item 10V on the Gwins In Indiana page.]; b. ca. 1804 in east TN; d. age 79, death certif. filed 22 Dec 1883; lived in Stampers Creek Twp., Orange Co., IN.; the 1850 Census for Southeast Twp, Orange Co., IN, shows David Denton, age 72 [born ca. 1778], b. in VA; his wife Elizabeth [Gwin] Denton, age 63 [b. ca. 1787], b. in TN. David and Elizabeth Denton, Allen's parents, lived in residence #35, and in res. #33 was Manervy Right [Wright], age 39, b. TN. Was she the widow of Elijah Wright? I believe that she could have been one of the last children of Isom and Mary Canterberry Gwin. Her Right children were: Ruth, 21 (I believe she married a Childress. JTW); Susan, 19; Benjamin, 14; Leander, 10; and Elijah, 5. (I recall seeing these names in the settlement of Isom Gwin's estate in 1855. JTW)

Also living in the house was Mary Gwyn, 80, born in Virginia, who could not read or write, and was blind. Was this lady the widow of my ancestor (4ggf) Isom Gwin/Isham Guinn? I must note that there is a marriage between Isom Gwin and Mary Likens recorded 20 Oct 1819 in Crawford County, Indiana-- is this Isom Gwin, Senior or Junior? [JMG NOTE: Almost assuredly Isham Jr., who was probably also the husband of Betsy Snowden]

The papers of Lucien Williams were filed in the Filson Club in Louisville, Kentucky, after his death around 1952. Mr. Williams was preparing a genealogical book on the Weathers (and other) family, but died before he could complete it. He mentioned in the notes that Benjamin Weathers' second wife was Virginia Jane Tipton, whose father Isham Gwynn was a Baptist preacher, and her mother was a Canterbury. He did not indicate the source of his information.

Cousin Jim Wall found his first marriage: "I must note that there is a marriage between Isom Gwin and Mary Likens recorded 20 Oct 1819 in Crawford County, Indiana-- is this Isom Gwin, Senior or Junior?"

[John M. Gwin Note:  Several sources have mentioned that Isham II moved from Indiana to Alabama just after William and John moved there.  One in particular, the notes of Cousin Orley Bush provided by Cousin Sharon Gwin Day, state that Isham II was a short man who moved to Mobile, AL, to help build ships.  In researching to discover what shipbuilding companies operated in the area during that time, I found the following to be evidence that Orley's statement could well be true:]

The following paragraph is taken from the Encyclopedia of Alabama article entitled

Steamboats in Alabama.

Alabama steamboats were owned by companies and individuals throughout the nineteenth century. The earliest steamboat companies were the St. Stephens Steamboat Company, organized in 1818, the Steamboat Company of Alabama in 1820, and the Mobile Steamboat Company in 1821. By 1861, however, most boats on Alabama rivers belonged to Cox, Brainard & Company. In the antebellum period, slaves owned by the company or individual owners served as deck hands.

GENERATION THREE

Kentucky and Ohio Branches

7 REVEREND CHARLES SNOWDEN [David 2, Joseph 1]
b. 28 Dec. 1783, Wash. Co., Pa.; d. 1866 (age 83), Clinton or Tipton Co., Ind.; s/o David and Nancy (Hazelrigg) Snowden; 1/m. c 1801/3 Hester Graham; d. 1840, Hardensburg, Jennings Co., Ind.; 2/m. 9 Nov. 1842 Judah (Judia) Ann Jividen (Gividen) (M. Bk. 3,p. 234, Jenns. Co.), widow of Joseph Gividen,l b. c 1790, Va.; d. 1859/60 (Mortality Schedules for 1860, Ind.) Bur. unknown.

Charles was in his parents' household in the 1800 U.S.C. of Clark Co., Ky. He headed his own household in 1810 and 20 in Estill Co., Ky. When he migrated to Ind. is not certain. While an extant eulogy of his son, Joshua William,2 states that Joshua was born in Ind. 20 Apr. 1820, the family is not numerated there that early. The earliest Indiana records for Rev. Charles which I have found are on 11 Apr. 1822, when he offic. at an Orange Co. marriage, and in Jul. at the marriage of Margaret Newkirk to James McDonald.3   On 5 Aug. 1824 he offic. at the marriage of his daughter, Betsy Snowden, to Ison Gwinn. He signed their certificate as Minister of the Gospel.

The family was in Decatur Co. in 1830, and by 1834 he was preaching in Jenns. Co. He was ordained in the Coffee Creek Baptist Church Jan. 1838, where "He preached regularly at school houses and private dwellings for some years." (Recds Coffee Creek Baptist Assn.) From 1845 to 1850 he served as a church messenger, an alternate preacher and as ordained minister in Geneva Twp., Jenns. Co., becoming by 1852 the regular minister of the Queensville Baptist Church of that county.

While public records list him as a Baptist elder and preacher, he considered himself a farmer, as noted on census recds. This may be accounted for by the statement in William T. Scott's Indiana Baptist History 1798-1908, p. 151: "There was a strong prejudice against salaries to ministers and (they) . . . had to labor with their hands to support their families."

In 1860 U.S.C. for Tipton Co. Charles is enumerated in the household of his son James and wife Mary Ann (Hopkins) Snowden. Since son James' property straddled the two counties of Clinton and Tipton, Charles may have died in either.

Recds. of Joshua William Snowden indicate that his father and mother had 11 children; nine have been identified; order uncertain.

Issue:

23.01--David H(azelrigg) Snowden, b. ca. 1804/5, Ky.; m1. 27 Nov. 1823 Polly Vannest (m. Bk. 1, Orange Co.); m2. 5 Jul. 1831 to Eliza Stokely (m. Bk. 1830-7, #38, Jenns. Co.)

23.02--Elizabeth (Betsy) Snowden, b. ca. 1806, KY; m. 5 Aug. 1824 Ison Gwinn (m. Recd. #60, Decatur Co.) He was a Baptist mins. They were living in Schuyler Co., IL, w/3 ch. in 1830 U.S. census. Another child, Charles, b. ca. 1836, IL, was living in household of Rev. Charles in the 1850 U. S. census.

[John M. Gwin Note: I have found the "Isam Gwin" (to which this person refers) in the fed. cens. of Schuyler Co., IL, in 1830, with a son under five, a daughter under five, and a son 5-9; his wife is age 20-29, and he is age 30-39.  In addition, in the 1840 census of Monroe Co., IL, an Isam Guin is listed as age 30-39 with wife age 20-29 and 3 daughters: two under 5 and one 5-9.  Whether either of these listings is our Isom Gwin, Jr., is not proven, however, in my opinion.]


23.03--Nancy Snowden, b. ca. 1808, KY; m. 15 Mar. 1825 to John Newkirk (m. Bk. 1, p. 84, Orange Co.)

23.04--Sarah (Sallie) Snowden, b. ca. 1810, KY; m. 23 Nov. 1830 to George Fear (m. Bk. 60, Decatur Co.); Listed in 1840 U.S. census, Jeans. Co., with 3 children. May have moved about this time, for on 1 Jun. 1840, recds. of Coffee Creek Baptist Church state: "Whereas Geo. Fear and Sally Fear have connected with another denomination, they are considered no longer members with us."

23.05--James (B.) Snowden, b. ca. 1811/12, KY; m1. 9 Nov. 1830 to Elizabeth Fear; m2. 5 Nov. 1834 to Mary Ann Hopkins

23.06--Rachel Snowden, b. ca. 1814, KY; d. ca. 1849; m. 12 Apr. 1835 to Thomas Newkirk

23.07--Margaret Snowden, b. ca. 1816, KY; m. 14 Jul. 1836 to James Brown (m. Bk. 2, Orange Co.)

23.08--Joseph Snowden, b. ca. 1817/18, KY; m1. 28 May 1835 to Sarah Overby; m2. 24 Nov. 1852 to Ginetta Permilla (Nancy) Dean

23.09--Joshua William Snowden, b. 20 Apr. 1820; d. 17 Jul. 1895; m. 1 Oct. 1846 to Mary Robins

HERE IS ISAM GIVIN IN ILLINOIS IN THE 1830 FEDERAL CENSUS. IT SHOWS 3 MALES: one UNDER 5; one 5-10; AND one 30-40.  THERE ARE 2 FEMALES: one UNDER 5; AND one 20-30.

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE OLDER MALE CHILD IS THE SON OF MARY LIKENS AND THE TWO YOUNGER CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN OF BETSY SNOWDEN?

[John M. Gwin Note: Jim Wall also reports another Isham Guinn in the 1840 census, this one in Wayne Co., TN (see below). Either seems viable to me: i.e., that this son might have moved to Monroe Co., IL (on the Mississippi River immediately south of St. Louis, MO), or that he might have moved to Wayne Co., TN (immediately north of the NW corner of AL).]

No time to pursue this right now,
but I really DO want to come back to it!

Martin Co. is west of and abutting Orange Co., making this Isam's location very close to our Isham's (who, if I'm right, is this Isam's grandfather).
Age: 73
DOB: Oct 1826 We know that Virginia Jane Gwin was just older than Isham II and was b. in TN in 1795.  We know that Richard W. Gwin was b. in TN in 1807 and was just younger than Isham II.  If Isham II is the father of this Isam (III?), then this 1826 DOB would be just about perfect.

[John M. Gwin Note:  I stumbled onto this 1900 census for an Isam Gwin and four of his kids.  I know this could not be Isham and Mary Canterbury Gwin's son, Isham II, since he was born in TN, not IN, some 25 years before this Isam. However, it is VERY possible that this is Isham II's son, whom I'll here call Isham III.


Concord Cemetery Tippecanoe County, Indiana

[John M. Gwin Note:   In Feb 2006, Jim Wall sent me the following Data on the Guinns buried at the Concord Cemetery in Tippecanoe Co., IN. I don't know if these are descendents of 22.00--Isham Gwin and Mary Canterbury or not, but if they are, then they have to be descendants of one of his sons, since their last name is Guinn and not Walker, Denton, Houston, or Wright. Further, since William, John and Chesley are all in Alabama, that only leaves this 3.6--Isham and 3.8--Richard W. (below), the latter of whom has no known sons named Isham. Therefore, by process of elimination, I have placed this family here--meaning it may be my first clue to Isham Gwin II's family. And maybe not.http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/in/tippecan/cemetery/concord.txt

a.--Guinn Hannah w/o Moses 11 Oct 1811 15 Oct 1841
b.--Guinn I. G. 1829 unk. I. G. Guinn! This must be another Isham. Sure enough, gravestone entry "h" below shows that Martha is the wife of an Isam G. Guinn. This then could be their son, I. G. Guinn, Jr.
c.--Guinn infant unk. unk.

g.--Guinn Martha J. d/o Moses and S. 6y 5m 2d [21 Sep 1846] 23 Jan 1853
h.--Guinn Martha w/o Isam G. 66y 7m 25d [21 Feb 1781] 18 Oct 1855 If my calculations and the tombstone's numbers are correct, this "Martha wife of Isam G." would've been born in 1781, as shown here. If, then, she is the wife of Isham's and Mary's son Isham II, whose date of birth is listed as 1796, then she would've been 16 years older than he! And that seems highly unlikely to me. 

But what if, due to some transcription error, Isham II's DOB were really 1786, not '96, and he were Isham's and Mary's firstborn instead of Elizabeth. Then Martha would've been only 5 years older than he, not nearly so uncommon an occurrence. 

On the other hand, if this were true, then how do we account for this Isham II being completely out of the picture during the family's years in Tennessee? He'd have been in his mid-30's and she almost 40 when the family made its exodus from Tennessee to Indiana just before 1820. Surely they would've shown up there in SOME document or other, yet we have no trace of them.

The following outline is partly speculation; however, it IS based on the above grave stones' stories:

1.00--Isam G. Guinn, b. unk.; d. 1853 or after; m. Martha (nee unk.; b. 21 Feb 1781; d. 18 Oct 1855; see tombstone "h" in chart above)
2.00--Moses Guinn, b. unk. (est. ca. 1810); d. unk.; m1. Hannah (nee unk., b. 11 Oct 1811; d. 15 Oct 1841; see tombstone "a" in chart above); m2. S. (nee unk.)

Moses Guin
m2. ca. 1841-1842 to S. (nee unk.):

3.00--Infant child of Moses and S., b. 14 Apr 1843; see tombstone "d" in chart above;

3.00--Martha J. d/o Moses and S., b. 6y 5m 2d [21 Sep 1846]; d. 23 Jan 1853; see tombstone "g" in chart above;

2.00--William H. Guinn, b. 46y 2m 11d [20 Jun 1818]; d. 01 Sep 1864; see tombstone "n" in chart above;

2.00--Moses Mc? Guinn, s/o Isam G. & Martha, b. 11 Sep 1853; d. 22 Jun 1859 [age 5]; see tombstone "j" in chart above;


 
23.07--? Gwin, b. 1799, [JMG Note: COULD THIS BE CHESLEY? We have reason to believe that there was indeed a child of Isham and Mary named Chesley, named for Isham's mother's maiden name. When he was born or where he would have appeared in the birth order is beyond speculation at this point. One theory states that the Chesley R. Gwinn who married Levinia Clay could be this child of Isham and Mary. But the estimated DOB for that Chesley is 1780, some seven years before Polly--Isham's and Mary's thought-to-be oldest--was born!]

Jim, this is very interesting! So there was a Chesley, and he is buying land in Illinois about the same time as Isham and Mary Gwin, David and Elizabeth Denton, Tom and Polly Walker, and all the rest of Isham's kids are getting settled in southern Indiana.

Is this Chesley a son of Isham and Mary? Or is he of the other Gwin families who arrived in the Indiana/Illinois area from Virginia rather than through Tennessee?

Where can I find where Township 6 North and Range 7 West are in the state?

Surely this is 160.00 acres--a quarter section--and not 16,000 acres (25 square miles)!

Can we find him there in the Illinois census records?

William, I am currently trying to sort out the members of the Houston family who left Hardin Co., KY, and moved to Crawford Co., IN and Brown and Adams Cos., IL. I have been focussing on Jesse Houston and Squire Houston primarily because I feel that Aaron Burr Houston and George W. Houston of Putnam Co., MO (in the 1860's and later) were brothers or half-brothers and sons of either Jesse (the younger) or Squire. A newspaper clipping concerning George W. Houston, written in the 1880's, states he was born in Crawford Co., IN and that "While quite young his parents moved to Adams County, IL." I find Jesse Houston in the 1830 census of Crawford Co., IN (age 40-50) who must be the elder Jesse. He was listed as Jessee Husten in the 1820 Hart Co., KY census (formerly part of Hardin Co. I find the family of Squire Houston and his wife Nancy Guin in Brown Co., IL in 1830, 1840, and 1850.

I have searched the Hardin Co., KY tax lists and find that Jesse Huston was taxed for the first time in 1804 and Andrew Huston's first listing is in 1794. Have you been able to find any record that tells us that Andrew was the father of Jesse? Do you know where the family was prior to 1804?

I have an Isaac Huston, wife Elizabeth, and their children. One of the children was Isaac, born 1802 who married Louisa, last name unknown, children unknown. My file shows Isaac born KY. The patriarch Isaac Huston/Houston was born about 1770. His first daughter, Jane, was born 1794 and married my great-great-great grandfather John Stevenson of Hardin County, KY on Sept 11, 18. Isaac lived in Hardin County KY near John Stevenson, and Isaac is buried in Bacon Creek, KY. Several of the family moved through Indiana, to Cass County, Illinois.

Here is what I have:
Descendants of Isaac Houston
21.00--Isaac Houston was b. ca. 1770; d. Bacon Creek, KY; m. Elizabeth (nee unk.; b. unk.; d. Hardin Co.?, KY?); 7 known ch.;

22.01--Jane Houston, b. 1794; d. 26 Dec 1847 in Brown Co., IL; m1. 22 Sep 1811 in Hardin Co., KY, to John Stevenson (b. ca.1786 in IN?; d. WFT est. 1819-1877); m2. 11 Mar 1822 in Harrison Co., IN, to William L. Dehart (b. 1801; d. 1852 in Brown Co., IL);

22.02--William M. Houston, b. 1798; m. 28 Nov 1820 in Harrison Co., IN, to Sarah Gwin

22.03--Rachel Houston, born Abt. 1800. She married Zachariah Downs 09 September 1817 in Jeffersonfville, Clark Co., IN.

22.04--Squire Houston, b. 1800; d. Mar 1882 in Brown Co.(?), IL; m. 27 Oct 1822 in Orange Co, IN, to Nancy Gwin (b. ca. 1805);

22.05--Isaac Houston, born 1802 in Kentucky. He married Louisa.

22.06--John B. Houston, b. 1805 in KY; d. 1861; m1. Mahala C. (b. 1808 in TN; d. 1880 in IA); m2. Mahala C. Gwin

22.07--Uriah Houston, born 12 February 1813 in Kentucky; died 09 April 1885 in Cass County (?), Illinois. He married (1) Harriet Barker. He married (2) Harriet Barker 05 January 1837 in Schuyler County, Illinois; died 05 April 1875.

Squire Houston M 55 1805 KY Squire Houston is likely a widower here, as Nancy is clearly not in the picture. 


Minerva Houston F 24 1836 IL Minerva's age here places her birth about fourteen years into the marriage of Squire and Nancy, if the 27 Oct 1822 date I have for their marriage is correct (Jim Wall got it from Ancestry.com). That means there are likely five to eight more unaccounted-for Houstons out there at this point. She is likely named for her aunt Minerva Gwin Wright, Isham's and Mary's youngest.


Uriah Houston M 19 1841 IL He is likely named for his father's brother, 2.07 above.


Malinda Houston F 17 1843 IL



Isam Houston M 15 1845 IL He is evidently named for his maternal grandfather, Isham Gwin.

Squire Houston M 54 self 1826 farmer KY KY KY This is the only Squire Houston I could find anywhere in the US in 1880. I believe he must be the oldest son of the above Squire. (See my note for Minerva in the 1860 chart above.)

The only thing that doesn't line up with known facts is the mother's POB--Nancy Gwin was born in Sevier Co., TN. Did this son not know that? Or is this the son of someone else?

35-35 David DENTON 72 Farmer 50 VA
I believe this is the same David Denton who bought land in Crowson's Cove (Sevier Co., TN) from Susanna Richardson in 1807 and who allegedly married Isham Gwin's daughter Elizabeth and moved to Indiana. If this is true, then he is John Gwin's--the John Gwin of Cahaba who is buried in Wilsonville, AL--brother-in-law.

Elizabeth DENTON 63

TN
I believe this is Isham Gwin's daughter Elizabeth, sister of John Gwin who married Jane Walker in the Wear Valley and moved to Alabama. If I'm right, then she is my ggg-grandaunt.

I believe this is the seventh-born son of David and Elizabeth for four reasons: living next door, same surname, approximate right age, and a son, Isom, who has the same given name as his grandfather--if I'm correct. Also if I'm right, then he is my first cousin four times removed

I believe this is Minerva "Manervy" Gwin: widow of Mr. Wright, tenth-born child of Isham and Mary Canterbury Gwin, sister of Elizabeth Gwin who married David Denton (res. 35 above, this census), and sister of John Gwin who moved to Alabama and is my ggg-grandpa; she has invited her mother, Mary, to move in with them to spend Mary's last years (see scenario below).

In 2001, Ms. Doris Gyarmati posted on the Childers Family Forum that Manerva's husband's name is Elijah (see note immedieately below).


Ruth RIGHT 21

In 2001, Ms. Doris Gyarmati posted the following on the Childers Family Forum:
I am researching the Wright family in southern Indiana, and they married into the Childers family. The following is what I have:
Elijah Wright and Manvera Gwin had two children who married into the James Childers and Sela (unknown) family:
Ruth Wright married Young Childers abt. 1852. 
Isom Wright married Milly Childers abt. 1854. Located in southern Indiana.

Could these be Leander's and Elijah's families in the 1880 census?
He's 4.5 immediately above--the only piece of data that doesn't
seem to fit is their mother's birthplace, highlighted in red below.
One says VA, the other IN, but I think Manerva was b. in TN.

Here's Isham Gwin's Will!



John, I am providing you a transcription of the will of Isom Gwin and the settlement of his estate about 25 years later, after the death of his wife. Two of my ancestors collected shares of  the estate for money due their wives: David Denton, who married Elizabeth Gwin; and Benjamin Weathers, who married second Mrs. Jane Gwin Tipton.
One of the heirs was named Childers--that is interesting to me, because in Virginia one of the Gwins who was probably married to a relation of George Holmes Gwin married a Childress. In Martin County, Indiana, Isum Gwin married a Chattin--I believe that Gwins and Chattins married in Virginia.

It appears that there were 9 heirs.  There were only two sons listed I. [Isom] and Richard W. Gwin; there was not William Gwin shown. Unfortunately,  the daughters names are not clearly stated. I. Gwin was Isom Gwin [Junior]-- I think he may have left Indiana for Illinois. I found Richard W. Gwin living in Iowa and Kansas later on.

Best wishes,
Jim


July 4, 1988
Below is typed the will and probate record of Isom Gwin my Fourth Great Grandfather, who apparently died about the end of December, 1830, in Orange County, Indiana.

Sam'l McIntosh administrator de bonus now with the will of Isom Gwin dec. annexed comes now and on his motion It is ordered that he do first pay $3.35 subsequent costs accrued herein which he now here accordingly does -- and it is further ordered that he do pay out said surplus of $1343.00 as follows to wit:



The record of Isham's will begins about two-thirds of the way down page 457 of the record book. I have used black text to indicate text that was written on the date the will was recorded. I used red to show addenda to the record by the clerk and others on later dates.


To heirs of Elijah Wright dec. to wit:
$149.22


Elijah Wright is the husband of Manerva Gwin, youngest of Isham's and Mary's children. Evidently both Elijah and Manerva are deceased, having left these six surviving children to inherit her share. Assuming this amount ($149.22) to be a "full share", and assuming that each of Isham's children would receive one full share, I will list in this column in this green the names of these children and their spouses.

01.  Elijah Wright is the husband of 23.11--Minerva Gwin.

Ruth A Childers --
$24.87)



Isham's granddaughter, Ruth Wright. d/o Elijah and Minerva Gwin Wright, married a Mr. Childers.

Isom Wright
 24.87)
 

Evidently Manerva liked her father well enough to name a son after him!
  Mary Stocup
 24.87)
 

This is the phoneticized "Stalcup", Isham's granddaughter Mary Wright's married name. She may have married a Samuel Stalcup, Samuel being named as security for the executorship of Reuben Whitten.

Benjn Wright
 24.87)
 




Leander Wright
 24.87)
 




Elijah R. Wright
 24.87)
149.22



This 149.22 is the total of the six partial shares (@ 24.87) and not a separate full share.

To the heirs of Polly Walker, dec, to wit:



Thomas Walker is the husband of Polly Gwin, oldest of Isham's and Mary's daughters. Evidently both Thomas and Polly are deceased, having left these children to inherit her share. 02. 23.01--Polly Gwin is the wife of Thomas Walker.

Isom Wright Walker $16.58




15May1855Red Elizabeth Wright this sum Richard Radcliff $16.58


Forty-two days after the will was recorded, the clerk wrote what is shown here in non-bold red, Richard Radcliff (the only one left of Isham's originally named administrators) actually signing his own name (shown here in red boldface) to show he'd received Elizabeth's share.

This receipt is written--perpendicular to the other lines in the left margin of the book--by the clerk, A. M. Black. The third line of his note indicates that Isham Gwin was a captain, perhaps in a militia.

Silver Composition: Believed to be Sterling ---- Maker: D.B.H. & Co. ---- Age: 1800-1849

Can you tell why I bought this early rat-tail type serving spoon on eBay? (Look at the three items in red.) It was sold to me from Zionsville, Indiana, in September 2005. The seller believes that it "is sterling or coin silver though it is not marked as to silver content. It is marked on the back side 'D.B.H. & Co'. On the front it is engraved 'Mary Gwin' in an early ornate style. Spoon is about 9" long and is in excellent condition with no real problems. There are fine lines from use, especially in the bowl as would be expected."

What do you think the odds are that this is a spoon that once belonged to my gggg-grandmother, Mary Canterbury Gwin?

The Page Prior to 26 Feb 2005:



The Gwin families allegedly came from Wales, where the name means "white".  I still believe all spellings of Gwin to be related, including Gwinn, Gwinne, Guin, Guinn, Guinne, Guyn, Guynn, Guynne, Gwyn, Gwynn, and Gwynne.  I've been told the first known Gwins in America settled on the east coast in the 1740's in Virginia and migrated into Kentucky, New York, Indiana, the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama.



 John McDonald Gwin's Line

 1.--Richard Gwin;  allegedly lived near Jamestown, Virginia, said to be of Scotch Irish descent; m. Sarah Chesley; one known son: Isham/Isom.

Uncle James said he got this information from the "Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol. I, p. 706", so I included it.  Finally, in Sep 2002, I discovered the complete seven-volume set of ACAG in my local library and read the entire entry myself.  Now I can see the source of the article's information as none other than Richard's g-granddaughter, Sarah Gwin (John's and Jane's daughter, Louis Basset's wife and widow, Emma Basset McCulloch's mother, and mother-in-law to Emma's husband Champe Carter McCulloch--former CSA major, mayor of Waco, TX, and passionate family historian who submitted the article).  This information is now much more credible to me, then, since John Gwin himself was still alive for a full ten years after his granddaughter Emma married Champe.  I imagine that the wealthy Champe and Emma wrote letters to John (who, though illiterate, was always around family who COULD read and write), probably even occasionally traveling by railroad to visit him and other relatives in Cahaba, Oakleyville, and/or Wilsonville.  If any reader has other documentation, please notify me--I'd love to hear from you!

 
On 30 May 2002, I saw for the first time Richard and Sarah in an LDS IGI microfiche file at our local Family History Center.  I wasn't sure how to read the documentation or even if there was any; nevertheless, three new possibly-documented pieces of data were added for me that day: 
1.  Richard was--again, all allegedly--born ca. 1748 in Jamestown, James City Co., VA; 
2.  Sarah Chesley was born there ca. 1755; and 
3.  they were married there ca. 1773.
YET NOWHERE--not in Virginia, North Carolina, nor Tennessee, and under none of the different spellings of Gwin, could I see any indication that this couple had any children.  They must have moved somewhere else--but where?

  In July 2003 I traveled to eastern Tennessee and found a deed that confirmed that an Isham Gwin lived in Sevier County where he owned 249 acres in Crowson's Cove on Walden's Creek (near today's Dollywood!).  As this is just the next hollow over from the one where Jane Walker's family lived, this gives me great encouragement that this Isham is indeed the father of our John Gwin who married this Jane Walker.

2.--Isham Gwin  (no dates listed) m. a Ms. Cleveland;  from other sources, we've heard that Isham (some spell it Isom--pronounced EYE-sum) was allegedly a South Carolina planter; some puzzle pieces seem to be coming together that may indicate at this time (Jan 2002) that Isham had at least two more sons in addition to John, below: William Gwin and perhaps a Chesley R. Gwin;

In July 2003 I traveled to east Tennessee to find out where Isham lived.  All I had to go on was (1) the fact that John and Jane were married in Blount Co., TN, on 8 Apr 1812, and (2) John's testimony on three separate censuses that he was born in Tennessee.  From the courthouse in Maryville, Blount Co., I got a copy of John's and Jane's marriage license.  And from the Green Co. courthouse in Greenville, I got a photocopy of the microfilmed deed record where Isham had purchased 249 acres of land in Sevier Co., TN, in Crowson's Cove on the waters of Walden's Creek (Grant No. 2540 found in Book 4, p. 38).  However, in mid 2004, we have uncovered evidence that shows that Walden's Creek today is not what was called Walden's Creek in 1807, when the land was surveyed and the deed was drawn up. Instead, we're now know that today's Cove Creek in Wear's Cove or Wear's Valley, the next hollow over and to the south, was then called Walden's Creek!

[JMG Note:  I did a search on Google for Crowson's Cove which produced four hits (listed in some detail at the bottom of the page)].  The deed reads as follows (capitalization that of the writer; emphasis mine):

Willie Blount
[John M. Gwin Note: Governor Sevier's Commission Book for Sevier Co., TN (see Item 14 below), notes the following: "Isham Guin commissioned Justice of the Peace, April 23rd 1796." This indicates to me that Isham Gwin was not only living in Sevier Co. as early as 1796, but it is very probable that he was living there long enough prior to 1796 to establish a reputation as a citizen reliable enough to be trusted as a JP. It seems to me likely, therefore, that his son, John Gwin, was born in Sevier Co., not Greene Co. as some suggest.

A Brief History of the
Crowson's Cove Map Project
I found Isham Gwin's deed the summer of 2003 in Greene Co., TN, and when I returned home, I used the surveyor's data to draw a map of Isham's property. This gave me the shape of the farm, but I still didn't know exactly where on Walden's Creek it was. It mentioned the names, however, of some of his neighbors, so Cousin Barbara Ward joined in and ordered films, searched them, and found and sent me the printouts of three of those neighbors' deeds--Shields', Bennifield's, and Brickey's farms!

Using their surveys, I drew these maps that show the general shapes of the respective properties of the Richard Shields, Isham Gwin, Peter Brickey, and Charles Bennifield families on Walden's Creek in Crowson's Cove, along with the names and general adjacent borders of several more of their neighbors. Our objective was to read the surveys and draw maps of the farms until we had enough clues to tell more precisely where the Isham Gwin farm was located. We did not know what to expect when we would find this, but anticipated that it might include the site of Gwin's grave.

The most obvious clue, of course, was that some of these farms were "in Crowson's Cove on Walden's Creek." But Bennifield's was not, so we believed that Walden's Creek passed through or bordered the Shields, Brickey, and Gwin farms but not the Bennifield property. In fact, we knew from Brickey's deed that one of the fence corners was located "on the creek," so we knew one point for sure through which the--or a--creek ran.

Most exciting to me, however, to this point, was the revelation from Brickey's deed that his NW boundary--what would be a single straight line almost a half mile long and shared with Henry Haggard--took a short detour around a piece of property belonging to "the meeting house."  We knew from some other records (see below) that at least Haggard, Gwin, Shields were very active in the Wears Cove Baptist Church. Could this "meeting house," then, be that church?

Then came a surprise letter from friends George and Juanita Fox of NC (whose book had first enabled me to find Isham's land in July 2003 as detailed below).  They, too, had been seeking the exact location of Crowson's Cove--for some time--and in April 2004, they were able to nail it down! In the surveyor's details of Peter Brickey's land grant (see map below), Brickey's NW property line is interrupted by a concave intrusion of an acre or so of neighboring property belonging to "the meeting house."  The Fox's knew that this would have to be Wear's Cove Baptist Church,  so they contacted the local Baptist association to see what they knew of it.  The church had burned long ago, they were told, but its cemetery's location is still well known, it being the resting place of the body of Aaron Crowson, for whom Crowson's Cove is named.

The Foxes immediately traveled the short journey to Sevier Co., found and photographed the cemetery (and Crowson's grave in particular), and they're now able to proclaim the mystery of the location of Crowson's Cove as solved: the Wear's Cove Baptist Church graveyard is located in Wear's Cove on today's Cove Creek, not on today's Walden's Creek!

Having gone there myself in July 2004, I now believe that this local Baptist association was either (1) incorrect in telling the Foxes that the church was located where the Crowson Cemetery is or (2) were speaking of perhaps another later church of the same name that MOVED from the location mentioned on the 1807 deeds to the cemetery site.

Well, now we've progressed much further into the Crowson's Cove Project and have created a page of its own. Let us know what you think!

Also, if you would like to make a map using an old deed of your own,
here's how I did it.

Selected Data from the Book
 Sevier County, Tennessee, State of Tennessee Land Grants 1806-1900
by George and Juanita Fox
The data in the following table is gleaned from the excellent work Sevier County, Tennessee, State of Tennessee Land Grants 1806-1900, compiled and copyrighted (2002) by George and Juanita Fox , 25 Cottage Ridge Rd., Fletcher, NC  28732 (e.mail juanitafox@att.net), and used here with their permission.

I am greatly indebted to them, for it was through their labor that I was able to find the deed describing the land of my gggg-grandfather, Isham Gwin.  I have listed here the information from several  entries, all of which I believe add valuable clues to a clearer knowledge of my family.

01. 621 16 Mar 1807
Susanna Richardson 36.5 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none John Hill
William Gwin
none listed Grant #1751, Bk. 3, p. 54 Barbara and I have found Susana's deed, and this William Gwin must be our relative. He is likely the same person we later see in the 1820 census of Dallas Co., AL, whom we believe to be another son of Isham and an older brother of John Gwin.
02. 748 18 May 1807
Isham Givin 249 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none none listed none listed Grant #2540, Bk. 4, p. 31 This is clearly our Isham Gwin, my gggg-grandpa.  (If there is a single flyspeck over the first downstroke of the "W" in Gwin, it is very easily mistranscribed as Givin as was understandably done here!     :-)  (see line 12) 
03. 782 28 Jan 1807
Charles Gwin 51.5 Guest's Creek none none listed none listed Grant #2504,
Bk. 4, p. 30
All these must be Gist's Creek, which starts about 7 miles NNW of where Crowson's Cove is.  It generally follows Sugarloaf Rd. east, Goose Gap Rd. north, Chapman Hwy. east, and the Old Knoxville Hwy. north to where it joins the Little Pigeon River just before it empties into the French Broad River just west of the Cobb Town Rd. bridge. Charles T. Gwin must be a relative, but we have not yet been able to connect him. (See also lines 7, 11, and 14 this table.)
04. 794 26 Mar 1807
William Hatcher 160.25 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none none listed none listed Grant #623,
Bk. 1, p. 623
We've located this William Hatcher's deed, and he shares a property line about two city blocks long with Richard Shields and a corner with Shields, Brickey, and Haggard (see map above and lines 6, 8, and 10 below). 

The Connection in East Tennessee names him as the father of the Elijah Hatcher who marries Jane Walker's sister Rebecca in 1819. (Jane Walker is Isham Gwin's daughter-in-law, John Gwin's wife, and our ggg-grandma.) See our Walker page.

05. 858 5 May 1807
William McCamy 29, 1 rod 7 perches on Knob Creek below the fork. Benjamin Chandler, John Guin Benjamin Chandler, Hugh Cowan, Andrew Cowan none listed Grant #1411,
Bk. 2, p. 505
John Guin is probably Isham's son John Gwin, Barb's and my ggg-grandpa, who, in 1807, would've been about 15 years old, the age of many a chain carrier of the day.

06. 870 25 Mar 1807
Henry Haggard 180 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none none listed none listed Grant #1402,
Bk. 2, p. 497
Could this be Merle's ancestor? Regardless, he is clearly Peter Brickey's neighbor to the northwest. The line they share is interrupted by a tract of land referred to in Brickey's deed as the "Meeting House" property, land now known to be that of the Wear's Cove Baptist Church.
07. 274 26 Jun 1807 6 Oct 1808 Daniel Farley 84.75 Guist Creek none listed none  listed Matthew Farley,

08. 988 18 May 1807 9 May 1810 Richard Shields 134.25 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none listed none listed Isham Gwin, joined with William
 Hatcher, Peter Brickey
Bk. 2, pg. 114 Richard Shields and Peter Brickey are mentioned by name in the description of Isham Gwin's land (see map and deed above) and were clearly  next-door neighbors.
09. 1645 18 May 1807 20 Jun 1810 Charles Bennifield 25 Crowson's Cove none listed none listed Guin line, Veach line Bk. 2, pg. 693 Mentioned in Isham Gwin's deed as running adjacent to his land. Charles Bennifield and Gwin share over 17 chain (some one-fifth mile) of property line.  A Nathan Veach shows up in church records of the region with Isham Gwin and also later with an Isham Gwin in Indiana.
10. 2575 21 Mar 1807 31 Jul 1812 Peter Brickey 124, 2 rods Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none listed none listed Charles Coulter, Amerine, Joshua Guin,Richard Shields, Hatcher, Henry Haggard Bk. 4, pg. 15 Deed found and platted (see above). "Joshua" Guin is a mistranscribed Isham Gwin.  Capital J's and I's were made exactly the same, and often the curlicue associated therewith could be mistaken for an O.  The S and H are the same in both names, and the A unclosed at the top in haste is easily an A, etc. 

From Isham's deed, this is George Amerine, whose deed has not been found as of Dec 2004.

Haggard's (see line 6 above) and Coulter's deeds have been found.

11. 2504 24 Jun 1807 5 Aug 1812 Charles Gwin 51, 2 rods Gesses none listed none listed David Nelson Bk. 4, pg. 30 Gist's Creek (see my comments, Row 3 above).
12. 2540 18 May 1807 5 Aug 1812 Isham Guinn 249 Crowson's Cove, Walden's Creek none listed none listed Peter Brickey, George Amerine Bk. 4, pg. 31 See map above.  We've not yet found George Amerine's deed (we expect to soon), but he shares 45 chain (over half a mile) of fence line with Isham and about a third as much with Brickey. 
13. 2553 14 May 1807 5 Aug 1812 John Guinn 47, 3 rods academy tract, Second Knob Creek none listed none listed none listed Bk. 4, pg. 32 Could this be our John Gwin, son of Isham?  If so, he was only 15 years old when he was granted the land.  I speculate that this may not have been uncommon, though, in the case of the children of such wealthy landowners as Isham. However, this could also be a brother to Isham and thus the uncle of ourJohn Gwin, son of Isham.
14. 2546 27 Aug 1807 5 Aug 1812 David Nelson 47, 3 rods Guesses Creek none listed none listed Guinn line Bk. 4 pg. 62 Gist's Creek (see my comments, Row 3).  This Guinn line must be that of Charles Tellis Gwin (see lines 3, 7, and 11 above).
15. 23320 2 Mar 1838 17 Dec 1839 Johnson Adams 8.5 Wears Cove none listed none listed Isham Givens, J. Matore Bk. 23, pg. 422 This is our Isham Gwin again. Wear's Cove and Crowson's cove are the same. While we've not yet found Mr. Adams' deed, his property  could easily have been adjacent to Isham Gwin's.

George and Juanita Fox

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Fox:
Thank you SO MUCH for the time and money you have spent compiling and publishing your book, Sevier County, Tennessee, State of Tennessee Land Grants 1806-1900.
Using it in the Knoxville Library's Archives last month, I was able to finally find (in Greenville's Archives) the deed for the 249-acre-farm "in Crowson's Cove on the waters of Walden's Creek" of my gggg-grandpa, Isham Gwin!

Please take a look at how I want to use some of the information in your book concerning other people (whom I believe to be directly related to each other somehow) I also found in your work.
The table I constructed contains data I gleaned directly from your work, and I'd like your permission and blessing to use it there.
If you have time, please take a quick three minutes and look at this table to see if it meets with your approval.  It's at <http://www.zianet.com/jmcdgwin/gwinisham.htm>
Thanks again for all your work and for any assistance you can give me in developing this line further.

Sincerely, and
In Jesus,
John Gwin

John,

Thanks for your kind e-mail.  You have our permission to use the information found in our book.
You have done a lot of work on the on the Crowson's Cove area. I hope when you visit the area you make use of the Genealogy Dept. of the Sevier County Library. The people there try very hard to be helpful. The head guy, Sam Maner, is developing into an expert on the area. He answers the queries sent to the Sev. Co. Library web site.
Wonder if anyone has mapped out the plats for the cove. There was a lady, a Ms. Wells, who mapped many of the plats in Sevier County (don't know about Crowson's Cove). Sam was in the process of acquiring her documentation.
Anyhow, I am excited to know another person working on early Sevier Co. history.  Because of the courthouse fire, I feel people have a tendency to "give up" too easy.  As you know, there are still many sources.
Hope you continue your work. Make sure Sam knows so he can share with other researchers. Many people can benefit from your work.

Best,
George (& Juanita) Fox

Historical Files, H4
by Clinton R. Haggard
http://www.surnames.com/haggard/historical/H4.html

Meanwhile, Henry and Dolly (Randolph) Haggard continued to live in the forks of the Little Pigeon River. This area of Jefferson County in 1793 was formed into Sevier County named in honor of John Sevier. (A Sevier County was formed in 1785 by the State of Franklin but only lasted as long as the state). The site for the county seat, to be named Sevierville, was chosen at the forks near the Baptist Church. The town grew rapidly.

The Haggards lived at the forks for about 16 years. It was here that their remaining children (Martin, Lucy, and Nancy) were probably born. The Sevierville County courthouse burned in 1856, destroying the deeds, wills and other important records. Henry served as delegate from the Forks of the Little Pigeon Baptist Church to the Association Meetings from 1790 to 1794, and 1800, 1802, and 1805.

Their children Noah, Martin, Lucy, and Nancy, were apparently still at home about 1807 when Henry and Dolly moved from Sevierville five miles to the southwest. Here "in Crowsons Cove on the waters of Walden Creek", Henry had surveyed on 25 March 1807, 180 acres adjacent to Aaron Crowson, William Crowson, Mr. Hatcher and Cove Creek. He paid $180 ($1/acre); the patent was issued 1 June 1810. The land description given above, which appears in the patent, implies that Henry's land was in the forks of Walden and Cove Creeks.

In Reply to: Elizabeth Brickey 1808 TN by D.Duane Cummins  of 456 Go

Duane,
On page 35 of Ray Brickey's "Brickey Heritage" is listed the following:
Gerard Brickey married Amy Compton. Their daughter, Elizabeth Brickey (listed as being born 5-9-1791) in East Tn., Holston River area. married to Samuel Coleman and had 12 children. Died 1809. Some of the dates in Ray's book are not correct...Unfortunately, Ray. went no further with the female lines. However, Gerard Brickey (m Amy Compton) is the son of John Brickey and Mary Garner, 2nd Jane Scott. John Brickey's father was Peter Brickey m Winifred Lucas, and Peter's father was John Brickey I, Immigrant from France. There is much more information that I don't have on the computer yet. I would have to send via US post office. Will be glad to share with you!
I would love to have an outline of this family to add to my files.
Elizabeth Jane's siblings were:

John C. Brickey m Lydia Smith,
Sally Bush Brown;
Mary Brickey m John McAdams,
Thomas Dobkins;
Lydia Brickey m Edward Millsap;
Jeremiah Brickey m Frances North,
Mrs. Wisor;
Elizabeth Brickey and Samuel Coleman;
Peter Brickey m Nancy Sutton;
Nancy Ann Brickey m Joseph Chadbourne, and
William Brickey who married Cynthia Atkinson.
Unfortunately, Ray did not index his book and is now deceased. I can give the address where to order his book if you are interested. I have put together a book, also (loose leaf, and in need of re-typing) over 300 pages. I did include as much on female lines as I could, but do not think it has anything on Eliz. and Samuel Coleman. We have the same Brickey family, but different lines.

My line is from Richard Shields (War of 1812 vet) through his son Jesse William Shields (Mexican and Civil Wars vet), who died sometime around 1869, somewhere in Alabama, purportedly a town named Mosbey, which doesn't seem to exist.

Dear Mr. Gwin,

It was with great pleasure I received your regular mail inquiry, although I can contribute no information on Richard Shields you asked about. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing such beautiful handwriting. I'm keeping that letter!

About my Shields work…some years ago I did a lot of research for a doctor here in town so he could get into SAR. He is now deceased, and I gave every piece of Shields information I'd gathered to his daughter, who lives some place in Dallas but isn't really interested in doing any research or was not last time I heard of her. There was not a Richard as part of their ancestry, though, that I remember.

One thing I noticed on looking over your great website for your Gwin family was that Isham Gwin married a Miss Cleveland. I might point you toward a source to check. You mentioned South Carolina roots for part of the family, and it brought to my mind an ancestry done on a southern line of Clevelands, Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, a Revolutionary War figure. I wonder if maybe Miss Cleveland might be part of this family. If so, you might find something in that genealogy book, a very small one, done on that Cleveland family; it's available through your FHC. This particular southern line is not the line of my Moses Cleveland, (a northern one), although they're probably related somehow in England years and many more back. I was just thinking it might be good to put a sort of tracer on old Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, or whatever his first name is, and see where he went and see if any Gwins are around. Just a passing thought to give you on Clevelands.  Looking into the early Cleveland history of Benjamin might lead to Gwin info, the proximity thing. A Google search will get you to Vickie Cleveland's pages, and she has the most info online on that name.

I hope you enjoy your holidays, and I’m so sorry I really can't help you about Richard. There were a world of Shields men, and as many spellings of the name. Big families, spread out all over. I had a really tough time finding his. 

Good luck with your work,

Hi John,
 Just got back from the history center. Ordered the Hatcher Papers film. Should be in when I get back from Tucson.
 
A few weeks ago I ordered films from the Leonardo Andrea collection. He was a noted research genealogist (mainly in the southern states; he lived in Columbia, SC (1940-50-60's) when he was doing most of his research). His collection is filmed and I had ordered four films: Wilson/Willson, Wilson,  my Brown's and my Lester's. Well, there's alot of information on the Wilson surname in South Carolina from colonial times. He has all the Wilson (of SC) will abstracts and there are plenty! I tried reading them all but had to give up til we get back from Tucson. Way too many to read and try to find a son named Nathaniel and Ezekiel. I ordered the fiche that  had the index on it but it hadn't come in yet. Maybe by the end of the week; will check that for first names.
 
Checked the pedigree file for Levinia Clay and Chesley R. Gwin. Deborah Peterson's source was: Book E page 416 Lauderdale Co., MS.
Samuel Clay names his grandchildren who are the children of his daughter, Levinia Clay Gwinn and husband Chesley R. Gwinn, deceased Jan. 3, 1848. I assume the year 1848 was when Samuel died.
Probate File - Index 1
Abie Clay appt. guardian to minor heirs of Chesley R. Gwinn; Stephen W. Clay appt. guardian of Mary Gwinn
Samuel Clay appt. guardian of minor heirs of Chesley R. Gwinn. Their six children were Chesley R., Haley B., Samuel, Elizabeth, William Wiley and Mary. The line that Deborah carries down is from Haley (male) who married Minerva Pace (hence the connection to the Pace Family Tree by Albert Pace.)
 
I'm going to get ahold of the submmitter Deborah C. Peterson of Mabank , Tx. Maybe she will have photo copies of those mentioned documents without having to order the film (if it turns out to be our Chesley). I still haven't figured out how I'm going to follow up but one step at a time. Maybe Deborah will have some idea when Chesley died or where.
I contacted Gordon Gray via email several days about his submission to Ancestry.com about Chesley and Levinia Clay but no reply yet.
 
Another person submitted material to GenCircles (Walter H. Vandevender) whvande@sandia.gov  (found on gendex). He follows this same Haley Gwinn. His sources aren't listed.,Will send an email this afternoon.
 
Checked the pedigree resource file for Isham and Mary Canterberry. No further information than what was listed on the FamilySearch webpage. This submitter was a Daniel Rose.
 
 John, check the Genforum webpage and look under Canterberry/Canterbury and see your remarks (#190 and another one in the 190's) This is why I don't think this is our guy. One reason being, you found the land grant information that shows maybe Isham Gwinn witnessing a land grant in 1839. He would still be in Sevier county and not in Indiana as thought.
 
Thats all to report. I can't believe no one has tried to research the Gwin's with all the material you have put out there on the internet or any descendants that check your webpage. It is so fascinating to get a new line and run with it! Right up my alley!
 
Have a nice weekend. Lovely here!
Catch you later,
BARB

New Stuff on Isham Gwin




From: "Barbara L.Ward" <genealogy@prodigy.net>

To: "John Gwin" <jmcdgwin@zianet.com>
Subject: Isham Guinn

Hi Again,
Found this reference to an Isham Gwin:
 
"I am descended from Isham Guinn/Isom Gwin who was a Baptist preacher at Tuckaleeche Cove, Blount Co., TN about 1809 and at Sevier Co., TN around 1810. He later was a Minister of the Gospel in Harrison and Crawford and Orange? counties.He was preacher at El Bethel Baptist Church, Crawford Co., Indiana until 1817 and at Providence Baptist Church in Crawford/Orange, In., until his death around 1830. He was listed in a book listing Baptist preachers, printed in Boston, MA in 1811.
Isham served in the Montgomery Co., Militia, Va in 1787. He m. around 1787 to Mary Canterberry, d/o of Samuel."
 
This was signed by James T. Wall (jamestwall@aol.com)  dated April 29, 2002, so it's not too old. It was posted to the GUESTBOOK FOR PRIMITIVE BAPTIST RESEARCH IN TENNESSEE, KENTUCKY, AND INDIANA @ http://carthage.lib.il.us/community/churches/primbap/Guestbook-KY-IN-html
James lives in Arlington, Va (703-524-2198)
 
I know that your uncle James B. Gwin's records state that our Isham Gwin was married to Ms. Cleveland, but Cleveland may have been a second wife. It's worth checking out. I know you said there were a lot of Gwins/Guinns in that area, but I didn't see any more "Ishams".
Why don't you contact him and see if we can connect.
Good luck!
BARB

Subject: Isham Guinn #2

Hi John,
I looked again at your land grants and saw that Isham Givens (Guinn) was a witness to a deed in 1839, so that must mean that he's not the Isham Guinn that I wrote about a couple days ago that relocated to Indiana. I did check out the Canterbury site and see that maybe he wasn't our guy after all from your notation.
Been checking the 1840 census on any Guinn/Gwin's who were still in the area.
Found only one that had anyone of the age of Isham. There was a William Guinn (20-30) with a older male (70-80) and female (60-70) residing with them. This very well could be Isham residing with son William. I couldn't find this William in the 1850 census Sevier County.
 
1840 stuff:
There was a John Gwin (30-40) 
 Nancy Guinn (30-40) with a older female (70-80)
James Gwin (age 30-40)
another James Gwin ? ((20-30)
Found Richard Shields ( (40-50)
And found Johnson Adams (Isham witnessed his deed with J. Matore) Couldn't find J. Matore even tho it was only one year later (1839) Adams was age bracket 50-60.
 
Did you know that Jane Walker's sister Rebecca married William Hatcher's son Elijah (of the Hatcher Papers).
Catch you later,
BARB

Subject: Package on its way tomorrow

Hi John,
Putting your Connections book in the mail tomorrow along with some material that I think you're going to like. I didn't want to go into it in an email; needed to write it out. I'm pretty sure I found where our Isham Guinn went after Sevier Co., TN. You might have seen the queries regarding an Isham Guinn being a Baptist preacher in Tuckaleeche Cove. Well, I did find quite a bit of material from the Tennessee Baptist Convention in Jonesboro (Washington Co.), TN 1810-1810. He indeed attended this convention as a minister/messenger. Don't know which but he is listed from 1803-1810; Tuckaleeche first and in 1810 Wears Cove. Also sending census records for Isham Guinn and his neighbor Nathan Veach along with material from Crawford County, Indiana on Elders Isham Guinn and Nathan Veach (these two coming previously from Sevier Co.).
Let me know when you get the package. I am sending it regular mail.
Take care,
BARB

NAMES EXTRACTED FROM THE MINUTES OF THE
FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH IN SEVIERVILLE,
Originally named
FORKS OF THE LITTLE PIGEON BAPTIST CHURCH.
 
Established 1789
 
Transcribed from the originals by Joe Sharp.
Sharp's transcript was copied and compared to the original by Harold Ownby in 1985.

This list typed from Harold's copy.  This is just an attempt to get the names made available and not to copy the entire minutes.  Hopefully, this will help people who are trying to locate their families in this place and time.
 
A debt of gratitude is owed to Harold for all the work necessary to provide this copy.  Edna Clack 1999
 
The Church was destroyed during the war and reorganized in 1876.
 
Names of members as of Sept 5, 1807, in the order they appeared.  I don't know the significance of the order nor why husbands and wives aren't listed together.

[John M. Gwin NOTE: To conserve space, I have put this extremely long list into forty "tables", which are simply continuations of the list from one table to the next.]

Holding believers baptism by Immersion, original Sin, Unconditional Election, Effectual calling free Justificationaly the Instituted Righteousness of Christ, The perservering power of God's grave in the Soul, a progressive work of Sanctification, The forgiveness of Sin, The Resurrection of the body, and final Judgment by Jesus Christ.  Owning the baptist confession of faith Reprinted in Philadelphia in the [year of] our Lord one thousand seven hundred and forty two as the best human composition taking the Scriptures of the old and new testament as the only rule of faith and practice, taking the over-sight of Each other, praying with and for Each other according to our Lords holy Commandment iming (sic) at the prosperity of Zion.

Second - We believe it to be our duty to assemble our selves to gather on all Convenient opportunities to Worship God, And in an Especial manner not to be neglect the filling our seats at our Monthly meetings met with out Lawful Reasons

Third - As touching private trespasses we believe to be our duty to take the Lords holy Institute as given in the Eighteenth of Saint Matthew That is if thy brother trespass against thee tell him his fault between thee and him aloan repent forgive him but if he neglect to hear thee...with the one or two more that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be (unreadable) but if he neglect to hear them (unreadable).

Fourth We believe that Jesus (unreadable).
James fourth Chapter and eleventh verse relates to our Miletant Church state and for our peace and happiness that is speak not evil one of another brethren nor Report evil reports of our brethren nor speak evil or any man, Nor or Judge any thing before the time
 
Fifthly  - We believe it to be our in dispensible duty to bear our part in the Expenses of the Church in supporting the Lords table the Ministers table supplying the poor and all other necessary Expenses
 
Sixth - We believe that a Minister is subservient to the Church her Gospel calls and order.
 
Seventh - We believe that any member having Impressions of mind to preach the Gospel should first be under the hearing of the Church and want her Common Suffrage.
 
Eighth - We believe it to be our duty to fill our Seats at the Lord holy Communion and to partake of that sacred ordinance.
 
Ninth - all Controvercies among brethren about temporal matters are to be brought to the Church and Referred to Judges that may be appointed to settle the matters so that brother may not go to Law against brother
 
Tenth - That members be received into the fellowship of the Church by Repentance and a true faith on our Lord Jesus Christ and baptism by Immersion (unreadable) and the right hand of fellowship (unreadable) Church members are about (unreadable) to the Church for a  (unreadable) they may go in order

Delegates from Sevier County Churches to Tennessee Baptist Association 1803-1862

Elaine R. Wells and Beulah S. Linn, Sevier County Historian

Introduction

 A copy of the original 345 page handwritten manuscript entitled "Minutes of the Tennessee Association of United Baptists 1802-1862" in the Carson Newman College Library was transcribed and typed by Elaine R. Wells of Clabourne, Texas, courtesy of Mr. Al Lang, archivist. The typed 282-page document is now in the Carson Newman College Library.

The Tennessee Association Minutes record the activities of the association, the names of delegates from the churches and whether or not the association received a letter from the church. The letter recorded the number of members received by experience or letter, the number of letters of dismission, the number of members excommunicated, the number of members deceased and the total membership.

Family historians will find the names of many delegates whose name has not been preserved in census records.

The minutes begin with page 3 recording the plan of the association and end with the minutes of the October meeting in 1862.

Commission Book
of
Governor John Sevier

April 2, 1796 - June 16, 1801
State of Tennessee

Taken from Mr. Sam Maner's transcription of Ms. Rebecca Knox's transcription of this book:
http://www.sevierlibrary.org/genealogy/state/commbook.htm

NOTE:  I have copied the complete transcriptions for Blount and Sevier Counties from this webpage, not to detract from its excellence but to
(1) protect the contents by providing another source for it,
(2) highlight those names and other data pertinent to my own study, and
(3) encourage others to seek this page at the Sevier Co. Genealogy Library's site for its contents concerning the several other counties it provides.
--John M. Gwin
Preface

This publication follows verbatim the original book containing entries of the initial Commissions issued by John Sevier, the first Governor of Tennessee.

Pages 1 through 8 contain entries of commissions issued to Judges of the various Superior Courts of the State; Attorneys General of the 3 Districts; Licenses issued to Attorneys-at-Law to practice in the various Courts of the State; United States Senators; the Representative to Congress; State Treasurers, 1 for each District; Secretary of State; Commissioners appointed to represent Tennessee at U.S. Treaties with the Indians; an Adjutant General for the State; a Major-General and Staff for the Militia of the State; 3 Brigadier Generals, one for each District; and Brigade-Majors and Field and Staff Officers for the regiments of Infantry and Cavalry.

Page 8 through 51 contain Commissions, both civil and military, for County Officers; Justices of the Peace; Sheriffs; Coroners; Field and Staff Officers for the regiments of Infantry in each County; and the Cavalry Company attached to each regiment.

All male inhabitants and indentured servants 18 to 45 years of age, with certain exemptions, composed the Militia of the State and should they fail to report for the various musters they were subject to a fine.  There was a Major-General of Militia for the State, and 3 Brigades, 1 for each District.  Each Brigade was commanded by a Brigadier-General who appointed his own Brigade-Major.  The Brigades were made up of regiments of Infantry, 1 for each county and 1 company or troop of Cavalry for each regiment of Infantry.  A regiment of Infantry was commanded by a Lieutenant-Colonel-Commandant, 2 Majors, and an Adjutant.

Each Infantry company which consisted of not less than 40 nor more than 80 privates was commanded by a Captain, 1 Lieutenant, 1 Ensign, 3 Sergeants, 2 Corporals, 1 Drummer and 1 Fifer.  A company of Cavalry consisting of not less than 12 nor more than 40 privates, was commanded by a Captain, 1 Lieutenant, 1 Cornet, 3 Sergeants, 3 Corporals and 1 Trumpeter.

The muster grounds were used for holding musters, paying taxes, holding elections, and other official community gatherings.

Each company was divided into divisions, numbering from 1 to 10, for the purpose of regular routine duty when called into service.

The Index was prepared by Robert T. Quarles, Jr., Director of the Archives Divison, Tennessee State Library and Archives.

George Amerine

14 March 2004

Hi John,
Glad the land grants that I sent helped. I was nosing around on the internet and found George Amerine (Land grant #336). Don't know if this is on the films you and I ordered but will check. He bought 132 acres on Cove Creek. Learned a little something about this George Amerine.
 
George was a Jr.; his father was George Amerine, Sr..
George, Jr's grandfather John Henry Amerine was from Germany/Switzerland b. 1732 and died 1805 Bedford Co., PA
 That is where George Amerine was born: 1784 Bedford Co.,PA married Luda Hulda (1802-1860) and died 29 Jan. 1866 Blount Co., TN. You learn such interesting things on the web.
 
Veach (Nathan) of Sevier Co. Land grant #1393. That might be on the films too.
Peter Brickey (Blount Co. Land Grant #421). Don't know if we'll find that on the films or not.
 
Will go down sometime next week and check on these other land grants. Your films should be coming in soon too. I am still waiting for Book 23 to come in.
Catch you later,
BARB

This could be our George (Isham's neighbor) or it could be his son. He certainly must be one or the other, given the proximity (six miles?) of Isham's neighbor's land from Tuckaleechee Cove and the lack of other Amerine's in the neighborhood.

Welcome Amerine
  Author: Becky Lee (Amerine) Brenner Date: 27 Oct 2003 5:16 AM GMT
  Surnames: Amerine
  Classification: Query
Trying to determine the parents of my gt. gt grandfather, Welcome AMERINE b. 1810, Sevier Co, Tenn.

We believe it to be George AMERINE Jr. b.1784 who also lived in Sevier Co. for a time, later in Blount Co. George was married to Lydia CROWSON in 1823 when he was 39.

We think he may've had a wife previous to this who may've been Welcome's mother. Can anyone help me with this?



By 1827 Amerine has moved to McMinn Co., two counties to the southwest...

Greenfield Township, Section 26 - T1S R1W

The Providence Cemetery is located in Greenfield Township near the Providence Baptist Church in the community known as Fargo, this being about 12 miles south of Paoli, and 2 miles west off of State Route 37. From the history of Orange County, Goodspeed 1884: "Providence Baptist Church, at Pittsburg, in the southern part of Greenfield Township, is said to have been organized as early as 1819, in what is now Crawford County, at the house of Robert Sands, although there is some doubt as to the date. Prior to 1880, when the present church was built, there had been in their turn a round and a hewed log-house and a frame that served each a period of usefullness and then abandoned." Note: The first two buildings were on the grounds where the cemetery is located. The cemetery and building are now separated by a few hundred yards.

7 August 1819:
The Presbytery, composed of Brothers Isom Gwin and Kinsey Veatch, met at the home of Robert Sands in Crawford County, Indiana. After being constituted, 21 chartered members took their seats and gave themselves the name of Providence. The church appointed Brother Robert Sands to write a letter to the Blue River Association and Brother Samuel McMahan, Brother Robert Yates and Brother Robert Sands to bear the letter and sue for admittance therein. The church agreed to call Brother Isom Gwin as pastor and sent a request to El Bethel to give him a week for that purpose and sent Brother John Lee, Sr., to bear the request.

The Church chose Brother Robert Sands as Deacon and Brother Walter Alexander as their writing clerk. In August of the same year Brothers John Davis and Cornelius Newkirk were messengers to the Association.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
August 1827:
Providence Church called on her trustees to make a report on what progress they had made in building a meeting house. They reported that they have the house built to the square by choosing the male members in four classes and they agreed to go on in the same until they have the house covered in. This first building was built of logs and was also used as a school house. Amos Critchfield taught school here in 1830.

A Little Crawford County History...

Crawford County was formed from Harrison County and Perry County in 1818. The act was passed January 29, 1818, to go into effect March 1, 1818. Originally, Crawford County had 4 townships. Over time it was subdivided into our present 9 townships.

The first courthouse for Crawford County was located at Mt. Sterling in a log structure. In 1821 the court moved to a new two story brick building built by Allen Thom at Fredonia. In 1843, the court moved to Leavenworth, and it stayed there until 1896, when it was moved to English.

The first town in Crawford County was Leavenworth in 1818, or some say as early as 1809. Fredonia was started in 1818-1820. Milltown was started by Zeb and Seth Leavenworth when they built a mill on the banks of Blue River about 1826. Gaithers Wood Pile or Nebraska, now called Alton, was started in 1838. Marengo was started in 1838, and Springtown, or old Marengo, had settlers by 1825. English was platted about 1838.

The first settlers in what is now Crawford County were Thomas Stroud, the Spencers, the Peckinpaughs, the Wisemans, and the Haskins, just to name a few.

The forests of Crawford County were the main source of income for many families. Ties, staves, hoop poles and lumber were farmed in great number and sold mainly in the early years at the port at Leavenworth. The forest also provided mast to feed your hogs. People from Orange, Dubois and Martin Counties would have hog drives through Crawford. The hogs would get fat off of the mash and would then be killed, processed and shipped at Leavenworth.

Early manufacturers in Crawford were Pekinpaugh & Harrison at Alton, which made furniture, among other things. R.D. Tucker and David Suddarth were gun makers in Crawford County. Carding mills, tanneries and sawmills began to spring up, and by 1871 over 21 sawmills were working in the timber.

During the period of 1865-1875 Leavenworth was booming because of the building of flatboats. Flatboats were built to haul hay, barrels of lime, pork, apples, cabbage, potatoes, and onions to southern markets.

The railroad opened up the northern part of the county when it was finished in 1882. New towns sprang up, like Taswell, Eckerty, Riceville, and Temple. The railroad was also a boom for older towns like Milltown, Marengo, and English.

Because of soil erosion, farming was on a downward spiral in the 1800's. People started leaving in large numbers after the soil and forest were depleted, and the economics of Crawford waned downward.

BLUE RIVER TOWNSHIP

Written By Frederick P. Griffin
from notes of Miss Loretta Davis & Mr. Emory Bruner

As published in the souvenir Cenntenial Program for the 1959 Harrison County Fair.

Blue River Township is located in the northwest corner of Harrison County; as its name implies, Big Blue River flows along and forms the west boundary of this township.

According to the records in the courthouse in Corydon, the first settlers of this township took land in the extreme northwest part of the towship along the river. These were Arthur Whitehead in 1817; Levi Taylor and John Coe in 1818; and Benjamin King in 1819. Josiah Lincoln an uncle of President Abraham Lincoln, settled in south west Blue River Township. Josiah Lincoln had six children; two sons Jacob and Thomas Lincoln and four daughters who married John Crutchfield, Isom Denton, John Briscoe, and John Sullenzer.

In 1809 and early road ran from southeast to northwest across this township; this was part of the main road that extended from Corydon to Fredericksburg- the later place was located on the Old Post Road of the Vincennes Trace.

Yesterday I visited the DAR Library in Washington, DC.  While there I found a History of Blount County, Tennessee: From War Trail to Landing Strip  1795-1955  Revised by Inez E. Burns, sponsored by Mary Blount Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and The Tennessee Historical Commission, 1957. Below is a transcription of a portion of the book dealing with its churches.

THE BAPTIST CHURCH
 
The leavening agent of the Baptist church must have been introduced very shortly after the initial settlement of the coves of Blount County, if it were not brought in with the first wave of settlers. Elder Richard Wood was already established in his work in Sevier County when the coves were settled, and it has been said by more than one authority that Richard Woods did more to establish churches along the streams and in the coves of Blount and Sevier counties than any other person.
 
Certainly, he lost very little time from John Walker's arrival in Tuckaleechee Cove in 1793 or 1794 until 1803 when Tuckaleechee, a new constitution with a membership of 65, asked for admission to the newly formed Tennessee Association. Since Association records are all that we can rely on, we cannot know who was present at its constitution. The delegates who represented her at the Association are names of later note--James Taylor, a Revolutionary soldier from Virginia and North Carolina; and William Davis, to serve later in the War of 1812 and a grandson of William Johnson, the first Moderator of the Tennessee Association from 1803 to 1809 inclusive, with a membership ranging from sixty-five in 1803 to ninety-one in 1806; then it gradually decreased to fifty-nine in 1809.  Among the delegates other than the two named were: Moses Crosen (Crowson), Thomas Suggs, Isham Guinn, John Friar, Henry Haggard, Thomas Morrison, Richard Davis and Kinsey Veach.
 
In 1810, Tuckaleechee did not appear, but a new church, Wear's Cove (Sevier County) was admitted with a membership of fifty-seven (Tuckaleechee had had fifty-nine the year before). Their delegates were Isham Guinn, and Richard Davis who had represented Tuckaleechee the year before. The following year Miller's Cove appeared as a new constitution and the same Richard Davis represented Miller's Cove.  Not many men have represented as an official delegate, three churches in three successive years!
 
The location of Tuckaleechee is halfway between Wear's Cove and Miller's Cove, and evidently the Tuckaleechee Congregation was dissolved to form two new congregations better located to serve the twenty-mile radius of the three coves.

Jim,
Thank you so very, very  much for the record of Isham Guinn. I now have proof for another supplemental to the Daughters of 1812 through my mother's side. I have one on file for David Jones, and my membership is through Theadore Ctalin on my father's  side. So thank you again.

I am Indiana State Chaplain of the Daughters of 1812 and presently serving my own chapter, Jonathan Jennings, as treasurer and will be chapter president the next term. I am also presently researching those from Harrison, present day Crawford and present day Washington County who served in the War of 1812. This research includes the date of birth, date of death, where buried, to whom married and names of children and their spouses. Today I found at the John Hay Center where there were 30, so it is an awesome task. The national society wants to compile a book similar to the patriot Index in DAR.

I also found out at the Center today where Ben Weathers had set a marker at the Walton Cemetery for Virginia Jane Gwinn Tipton. Now if I could just find out who and if my Sarah Tipton was related to Joseph--ej

Gwin Cemetery -- Located in Dubois Co., IN, on the northern edge of Harbison Township, northeast of Haysville--(Latitude: 382931N, Longitude: 0865332W)

Click on Link A to go to a topographical map of the area (with the Gwin Cemetery at its center).

Link A: http://www.topozone.com/map.asp?lat=38.4919444444444&lon=-86.8922222222222&datum=nad83&u=6

Using this map, I measured out the following directions to reach the Gwin Cemetery:
Take U.S. 231 north from Jasper in Dubois Co. to Haysville. At the center of town, 231 will intersect state route 56, which take to the east exactly one mile (it will bear south as you approach the edge of town, then return to an east bearing). On your left, you will see a small road going up the hill to the NNE, which follow exactly one-half mile (yes, it will turn to one-lane dirt--stay with it!). The cemetery is about 750 feet up the hill to your right--due east from where you parked your car--atop the ridge overlooking the river.

Immediately below is the link to the TerraServerUSA satellite photo image of this same area--Link B. If you open two windows on your screen--one for the satellite photo and the other for the topo map--you can see that the cemetery is atop this heavily wooded ridge in the midst of prime farm country. The road mentioned above appears to likely be a private road going to the two farms that are clearly visible in the photo. Therefore, perhaps a better route to the cemetery may be to continue farther east on Rt. 56 about half a mile past the abovementioned turnoff on the left to the next turnoff to the left, parking your car somewhere along this little blocklong road near the barn in the photo, then walking on in, skirting the field on its west side and going past the large pond area into the woods. It appears to me that one would greatly profit from the use of a GPS to find the cemetery going either route.

Link B: http://terraserver-usa.com/image.aspx?T=1&S=11&Z=16&X=1273&Y=10650&W=1

I used the following Link C to find Links A and B above. There is a wealth of information here regarding this area:

Hello John.
I have been to the cemetery you refer to. I went up there about two years ago. This was indeed a family plot; there are three people buried in this area.

I was a little shocked at the condition of the plot; one stone was lying down, and one was in three pieces; all are readable. They are in a group of trees and covered with broken limbs and weeds.

I am going to have to dig my paperwork out and get you the info on the stones. There are a father, mother, and young son buried there. OK, they are:

David H. Gwin
16 Mar 1817
14 Dec 1849

Sarah A. Gwin
4 Mar 1824
9 Mar 1854

David H. Gwin
1 Feb 1849
11 Sep 1854

From what I gathered from the county office in Jasper, the father of the boy and family buried there was a brother-in-law to Harbison, from whom the township is named. Gwin and Harbison together owned about 200 acres in that area. When Gwin sold out, he had a clause in the deed which set aside 1/4 acre for this cemetery.

The current owner of the land was a little reluctant for me to go up to the site, so I went anyway, took a bunch of pictures, and enjoyed the walk back to the site. Its probably 3/4 mile from the highway. I was thinking I sent Mr. Wall a couple pics of the cemetery, maybe not, I can't remember.

Regards, Kenny Gwin
P.s. I had a computer crash last summer and lost all my pics. trojan virus...
Left: This is the old barn (see arrow) west of the cemetery, still standing in 2004. (The cemetery is up the hill to the right.) You can see this old barn in the TopoZone map in Link A above. Right: Atop the ridge approaching the cemetery (see arrow) from the south.

Dear John,
I have a lot of information on the Gwin family who migrated from Pittsylvania County, Va. John Gwin of Danville Va. settled in Harrison Cty, 1804. There were 9 children, one of whom was my gg-grandfather Homes Gwin. He had brothers Geo., Ed, John, and Thomas, and four sisters, Elizabeth, Nancy, Sallie, and Polly.

I believe I read somewhere in your site that Geo or maybe it was John had a son who was a Capt. in the Civil War. The capt. was Isum Gwin, son of Homes and Mary Patterson Gwin ( see the 80th Indiana on your web--type in 80th Indiana). Scott Meeker of Wis. has written a great deal on the 80th. I donated Isum's Civil War diary to the
Indiana Historical Society, Indianapolis, last year. If you are interested in more info, such as George,s migration to Macoupon County, IL, I will be glad to help you with this info.

Please consider there were many Geo. Gwins, Holmes Gwins, and Homes Gwins. John Gwin's brother Thomas also came to Harrison County in 1804. All settled in Lanesville, IN. My g-grandfather Isum was born in Lanesville in 1826 and died and was buried in Martin County, IN, in 1906.

Hope to hear from you. Kenneth L Gwin

Hey, Ken! I sure hope you're well and enjoying yourself (and everyone else, too)! I haven't heard from you in awhile, and I wanted to get in touch.
Besides that, I have some very interesting information about which you may know something. I can see a small cemetery in Dubois Co., just north of you, called "Gwin Cem." on the online topo map. If you got to Jasper, then to Haysville, then went east of there a couple of miles, it'd be a few hundred yards north of Rt. 56. If you click this link, it'll take you to a spot on my Isham Gwin page where I have two more links--one to the topo map location, and the other to a satellite photo of the same spot. If you put both side by side, you can get a better idea of what the land's like there. There appears to be no road within 150 yards or so, so it may be a really old cemetery. If you don't know anything about it, then it's anybody's guess as to who's buried there. Would you be interested in going up there to see and maybe chalk and take a few pictures of the gravestones? I'm so curious, I can hardly sit still!   Here's the link: http://www.zianet.com/jmcdgwin/gwinisham.htm#gwinCemDuboisCoIN I hope to hear from you soon--talk to you again then.

Subject: Isham Guinn in Wayne County, Tennessee in 1840

http://www.netease.net/wayne/1840census.htm

Wayne County, Tennessee
1840 Federal Census
Transcribed by Edgar D. Byler, III

Transcribed from NARA Microfilm Publication M704, Roll # 899 (Sixth Census of the United States, 1840). Originally published in "Wayne County, Tennessee Census Records Volume I: 1820, 1830 & 1840", The Byler Press, 1974.

Only the name of the head of each household is listed. All other individuals living in the household are listed by the number of individuals in a given age group with the exception that pensioners living in a household were listed by name and specific age and will appear in parentheses directly after the name of the head of household. A question mark appearing inside brackets (e.s. [?]) indicates a question by the transcriber concerning the name or its spelling.

This transcription follows the standard shorthand enumeration. The column headings for this census are

Free Whites:
Male: under 5 years/5 to 10/10 to 15/15 to 20/20 to 30/30 to 40/40 to 50/50 to 60/60 to 70/70 to 80/80 to 90/90 to 100/100 and up.
Female: under 5 years/5 to 10/10 to 15/15 to 20/20 to 30/30 to 40/40 to 50/50 to 60/60 to 70/70 to 80/80 to 90/90 to 100/100 and up.

Slaves and free colored persons:
Male: under 10/10 to 24/24 to 36/36 to 55/55 to 100/ 100 and up.
Female: under 10/10 to 24/24 to 36/36 to 55/55 to 100/ 100 and up.
 

For the purpose of this transcription, slaves are given as a whole number following the free while females. Free persons of color are listed as enumerated.

For example on page 67, the first entry:

Thomas Franklin        310001-/120001-

This means that in the household of Thomas Franklin the following people were living:

3 males between the ages of 0 and less than 5 years
1 male between the age of 5 and less than 10 years
0 males between the age of 10 and less than 15 years
0 males between the age of 15 and less than 20 years
0 males between the age of 20 and less than 30 years
1 male between the age of 30 and less than 40 years
- no other entries in the male columns.
/
1 female between the age of 0 and less than 5 years
2 females between the ages of 5 and less than 10 years
0 females between the age of 10 and less than 15 years
0 females between the age of 15 and less than 20 years
0 females between the age of 20 and less than 30 years
1 female between the age of 30 and less than 40 years.
- no other entries in the female columns.
since there are no other numbers following the last dash, there were no slaves living in the household.

Free blacks if living in the household would be enumerated separately, following the last column of the white females, and would be listed by free black males and free black females.

Page 101

Isham Guinn  100001-/20001-

[John Gwin Note: Wonderful! OK, let's speculate as to who these people would be:

One male between the age of 0 and less than 5 years (i.e., b. betw. 1835 and 1840)
One male between the age of 30 and less than 40 years (i.e., b. betw. 1800 and 1810) -- This would be the Isham Guinn, head of household.
1. One could argue from the closeness of the DOB that this could possibly be the "shadowy" 3.6--Isham Gwin II, sixth-born child of Isham and Mary Canterbury Gwin.
Two females between the age of 0 and less than 5 years (i.e., b. betw. 1835 and 1840)
One female between the age of 20 and less than 30 years (i.e., b. betw. 1810 and 1820) -- This would be the wife of Isham Guinn, head of household.

16 April 2006

ISHAM GUIN, BAPTIST PREACHER

I have found references to my fourth great-grandfather, Isham Guin/Isom Gwin in Primitive Baptist Church records in Eastern Tennessee in the early 1800s, from 1803 to 1810. These records are contained in full on two web sites indicated below. I have copied only those portions mentioning my ancestor plus the introduction.

It appears that Isom Gwin (I generally use that spelling version of his name) was ordained a minister about 1804. He was associated with four churches in Eastern Tennessee during that time period: Forks of Little Pigeon Church; Providence Church; Tuckaleechee Church; and Wears Cove Baptist Church. He attended seven church conventions in the region from 1803 to 1810. In six of the church meetings he attended as an ordained minister.

After moving to Indiana from Tennessee, Isom Gwin was associated with two churches: El Bethel in Crawford Co. and Providence Church in Crawford? [John Gwin Note: Orange] Co. He served at Providence Church until his death about 1830.

Gwin/Lilly Marriage
in Harrison Co., IN, 1827
Barb, I found your query on http://genforum.genealogy.com/gwin/messages/361.html.  You queried: I am looking for information on Elizabeth Gwin who married Richard Douglas Lilly September 13, 1827, Harrison County, Indiana.  Any one know anything about Elizabeth?  She was born a bout 1809 in Indiana. Please help.Barb  bbzservice2@citilink.net
 
In MARRIAGE AFFIDAVIS AND CERTIFICATES, Harrison County, Indiana, by Walter S. Beanblossom, Ancestral Trails Historical Society, March 1973, there are several GWIN marriages which give additional information about Elizabeth.

It appears that there is yet another son of Thomas Gwin and brother of Elizabeth Gwin!

I am quite sure that Thomas Gwin [Sr.] is a son of George Holmes/Homes Gwin  who died in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia about 1793.  Several of his sons moved to Harrison Co., Indiana from Pittsylvania Co.  Barb, please provide me your mailing address and telephone number, so that I can contact you.  I have additional info on George Holmes Gwin which I can provide you.
I am descended from Isom Gwin and Mary Canterberry Gwin who went from Montgomery Co., Virginia to Tennessee to Southern Indiana (Harrison/Crawford/Orange counties). I am sure that there is a relationship between George Holmes Gwin and Isom Gwin. However, I haven't figured it out yet. -- Jim Wall

Subject: 1820 Indiana Census of Males

I have extracted the following information from The Indiana 1820 Enumeration of Males, compiled by Mary M. Morgan, The Family History Section, Indiana Historical Society, Indianapolis, 1988.  Only fourteen of the thirty-three counties required with the requirement of the 1816 Indiana Constitution. The counties which reported in the 1820 enumeration do not cover all those where my ancestors and related families lived. For example, Harrison and Clark counties were not included.

Mike, I went through your lists below and indented and highlighted those from the counties of Orange, Crawford, Harrison, and Dubois, since it seems most likely to me that those who would have come from east Tennessee with the Gwins et al would've settled in the same places.

Jim and John,
 
One interesting thing I noticed. In 1816 Thomas Walker and Mignon Boaz are listed at the Wears Cove Baptist Church. I don't know if you remember or not, but some researchers have a Mary Boaz listed as a wife of Thomas Walker (Polly Gwin's hubby), with a marriage date of 21 June 1816. It is obvious that this could not have been correct, because Tom and Polly were married and had at least 2 kids by 1816. I'll bet that if there is a marriage record for Thomas Walker and Mary Boaz, that it is Thomas the father, not the son. His wife, Elizabeth Magill, may have died by then. I don't have a death date for her. Elizabeth would have been 66 years old by 1816, and Thomas would have only been 50, if you believe the most commonly listed dates for them.
 
Mike

Family historians will find the names of many delegates whose name has not been preserved in census records.

The minutes begin with page 3 recording the plan of the association and end with the minutes of the October meeting in 1862.

Subject: Isham Guinn, Lincoln County, Tennessee - 1820 Federal Census; KY & IN marriages

 All 1820 United States Federal Census Results

1820 United States Federal Census Record about Isham Gwinn

I looked at this census on Ancestry.com.  On the preceding page, written "page 41," I found Fielding Luttrell, Nathan Luttrell and Vincent Luttrell.  On the following page 77 of 91, written "page 42," I found:
 
William Guinn    ---1--1 -1---1
Several lines below were:
Mary Luttrell followed by
Isham Gwinn    2---1-3 1-1--1  and
Champion Gwinn  32-2--- -----3

I doubt that the Isham Gwinn in Lincoln County, Tennessee is the Isom Gwin who lived in Indiana at about the same time.  I provided the persons named Luttrell because I am pretty sure that one of the children of George Holmes Gwin of Virginia married a Luttrell.  I thinks that several sons of George Holmes moved to Indiana, and that some Luttrells came with them. 
 
Somehow I think that my Isham Guinn/Isom Gwin is related to George Holmes Gwin of Goochland, Albemarle and Pittsylvania counties, Virginia.  Some day I hope to find how.
 
To put things in perspective with some facts, I am providing additional information on Indiana GWINs who were living about the same time.
 
11/28/1820  Wm. Huston obtained a marriage license to marry Sarah Gwin, with c. of f. (consent of father) Thom [I am sure that it is Isom. JTW].  This is contained on page 9 of MARRIAGE AFFIDAVITS AND CERTIFICATES  Harrison County, Indiana  1809-1865,  by Walter S. Beanblossom (a LOVE VIERS BAKER CLORE cousin of mine. JTW), March 1973, published by the Ancestral Trails Historical Society, Vine Grove, Kentucky.

This is a copy of the will with my original notes on it. Somehow they got erased, and later I added some additional notes. I don't want to lose these, so I have attached them here for safekeeping. John Gwin

PROBATE COURT RECORD


John Gwin's Comments


The record of Isham's will begins about two-thirds of the way down page 457 of the record book. I have used black text to indicate text that was written on the date the will was recorded. I used red to show addenda to the record by the clerk and others on later dates.


Elijah Wright is the husband of Manerva Gwin, youngest of Isham's and Mary's children. Evidently both Elijah and Manerva are deceased, having left these six surviving children to inherit her share.






Isham's granddaughter, Ruth Wright. d/o Elijah and Minerva Gwin Wright, married a Mr. Childers.
Evidently Manerva liked her father well enough to name a son after him!
This is the phoneticized "Stalcup", Isham's granddaughter Mary Wright's married name. She may have married a Samuel Stalcup, Samuel being named as security for the executorship of Reuben Whitten.



Thomas Walker is the husband of Polly Gwin, oldest of Isham's and Mary's daughters. Evidently both Thomas and Polly are deceased, having left these children to inherit her share.

Forty-two days after the will was recorded, the clerk wrote what is shown here in non-bold red, Richard Radcliff actually signing his own name (shown here in red boldface) to show he'd received Elizabeth's share.
This receipt is written--perpendicular to the other lines in the left margin of the book--by the clerk, A. M. Black. The third line of his note indicates that Isham Gwin was a captain, perhaps in a militia.

The clerk wrote what is shown here in non-bold red, Richard Radcliff actually signing his own name (shown here in red boldface) to show he'd received Mahala Walker's share.

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 my Great-Grandfather, Orley Bush Gwin, were: Isam, first son. Isam was reportedly very short, He became a ship builder in Mobile, Alabama. William second son was supposedly 6'1" tall, and that is all my g-grandfather new about him! John the third son, was 6'3" tall, and that is all on him too! Richard Ward was the 4th son (this is my 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. The only other children of Isam's, as recorded by Orley Bush were: Mahala, who marrie a Henderson of Indiana; Minerva, who married a Lincoln of Indiana, formerly of Kentucky; Mary, who married John Denton of Indiana. 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 third born 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 with whom 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 sruface 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 the his sons, Isam, William, John, and Richard, probably all came from their grandfathers and fathers.
 
Regards,
Sharon Rae Gwin Day
