  Some Correspondence So Far

I enjoyed your website.

I am looking for information on an Ida Gwin. Here are the facts.

Alexander Gwin, son of the Rev. James Gwin and Mary McAdams, born 1817, Sumner Co, TN, married first Elizabeth Lowery, born SC, 13 Sep 1843, Madison Co, MS.  On the 1850 Issaquena Co, MS, Census Alexander and Elizabeth  are listed with one child, Ida Gwin. Elizabeth died sometime after the census was taken.

Alexander Gwin married second Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" Critchlow, 26 Oct 1853, Rutherford Co, TN.  She was a cousin descended from Sarah Gwin, through Howells and Nelsons. They lived at Issaquena Co until Alexander's untimely death in Apr 1867.

I have never been able to find out about Ida Gwin. Any connections here?

Thanks for your time.

To which John Gwin, on 3 March 2003, answered:

Dannie, transferring this data to my own format (works better for me), I get the following, IF I'm reading your data correctly (please send me any corrections to the way I interpreted what you sent--thanks!):

1.00--James Gwin m. Mary McAdams;

2.00--Alexander Gwin,b. 1817, Sumner Co., TN; d. Apr 1867, age 50; m1. 13 Sep 1843 in Madison Co., MS, to Elizabeth Lowery (b. SC;  died after 1850);

         3.01--Ida Gwin (b. before 1850);

m2. 26 Oct 1853 in Rutherford Co., TN, to Sarah Elizabeth "Sally" Critchlow (a cousin of Alexander and who descended through the Howells and Nelsons from a Sarah Gwin); lived at Issaquena Co., MS;

At this point, I have no information on this family. But if you'd like me to build you a page on my website for this line, I'd love to do it.  This not only gets the info out in front of the other searchers and allows them to use it, it also makes it easier to make the connections, since there are so many others able to see the info and add a clue here or there that can be the missing link...

I'm looking forward to working with you more on this.

In Jesus,
John
