Return to a plausible theory regarding Littleton's ancestors

See our developing theory on the "As-of-yet Unrelated" Gwins.

The reformatting of the name font and census data for this page has been completed. --John M. Gwin, Jun 2012



One of our objectives is to tie together as many of these GWIN lines (all variations of spellings) as possible.  It seems that a good way to do this is to create as many pages as we can, place them online, and see who can spot something that the rest of us have missed so far. 

For example, here's a link to a page that just has to be connected to this one; nevertheless, that connection has eluded us thus far:
http://www.gwingenealogy.net/GENEALOGY/SURNAMES/Gwin/gwinmaltimore.htm



DISCLAIMER:  As with any unproven genealogical information, much of what you see below may be little more than hearsay and should be treated as rough-draft material only.  PLEASE contact one of us if you have anything to add, correct, substantiate, disprove, question, expand, discuss, or just holler about.  And if you can help us get behind or to either side of Littleton, know that you'll have made us all very happy indeed!

SOURCES:
1.  In September 2002, after I decided to pursue this route of building and posting as-of-yet unrelated pages, I contacted two people with whom I have been corresponding and asked them to supply information for the page.  The first of these is Ms. Marsha White of Jefferson Co., AL, wife of Walter Miller White, one of Littleton's great-grandsons.  She sent me copies of the following documents:

a.  Collins, Tom, "Mortimer M. Gwin Family History ", 9 Nov 1989 (data from this source appears below in this purple color).
b.  Gwin, Jesse Blaine, History of the Gwin Family, 1961, pp. 154-5, 158-9 (ref. letter dated 17 Jan 1938 from Bessemer, AL, from "Aunt Lucy" to "Robert and Henriette");
c.  Photos of Littleton's and Mary's gravesites;
d.  US Census, 1850, Jefferson Co., AL, Mud Creek;

2. Today, 24 Oct 2005, I downloaded a 23-page PDF file from the internet. Entitled "Descendants of Littleton C. Gwin," it was posted by the Hueytown Historical Society, (www.hueytown.org/historical), updated September 2005, and contributed by a Mr. David Reed. The following is taken from those pages. Since the information is partially in agreement with and partially in disagreement with Marsha White's data in the opposite column, I decided to post both in this side-by-side format to allow comparison.

3. In May 2010 (and again in Jun 2012) Lise Deshea emailed us with some documentation on her line (including the will of someone who may turn out to be Littleton's father!--see the yellow box immediately below).

4.  In Dec 2014, Jenna Hahn contacted us from 24.03 Kathryn's line to report that she is a great-granddaughter of Kathryn's granddaughter Donie Bell Gwin.  Her email prompted me to update this page, including a renumbering of the generations (starting with Littleton, formerly gen. #24, now gen. #23).

5.  In Nov 2017, Sheila Quick, mother of Jenna Hahn, contacted us. She has already updated her line a little, and I'm looking forward to seeing more that she has said she would send!  :-)




Here are the 13 known children--eight sons and five daughters--of a Thomas (and his wife Elizabeth) Gwin named in his will:

[John M. Gwin Note:  Lise found this document in May 2010.  Just look at the names we've already seen in this and other lines!  Nothing proven yet, so be cautious, but I agree with Lise: these just have to be the parents and siblings of this Littleton C. Gwin.  See my further comments below.]

22.00--Thomas Gwin m. Elizabeth (nee unk.)

23.00--Richard Gwin--------------John M. Gwin strongly believes that his ggggg-grandparents were Richard Gwin and Sarah Chesley of near Jamestown, VA, and that all those we strongly believe and/or suspect to be their children (Isham and possibly a John, a William, and now this Thomas) named their children after them.
23.00--John Gwin--------------------
John M. Gwin's ggg-grandpa is John Gwin, son of Isham (see my note on Richard, above.)
23.00--Littleton Gwin (b. 1809)--Very likely this is our Littleton C. Gwin, the subject of this page (does the C. stand for Chesley?).
23.00--Jesse Gwin-------------------
23.00--William Gwin-------------
John M. Gwin's ggg-granduncle is William Gwin, son of Isham (see my note on Richard, above.)
23.00--Jeptha Gwin----------------
23.00--Thompson Gwin-------
23.00--Chesley Gwin-------------
John M. Gwin's gg-granduncle is Chesley Richard Gwin, son of John (see my notes on John and Richard, above.)
23.00--Mary Gwin Price-----
23.00--Milley Gwin----------------
23.00--Sarah Gwin-----------------See
John M. Gwin's note on Richard, above.
23.00--Elizabeth Gwin---------
23.00--Nancy Gwin----------------

"Littleton C.

This 40 acres of land--SE 1/4 of SW 1/4, T16R6S24--is located (in the southernmost portion of Perry Co., AL) one-half mile west of the Dallas Co. line, two miles north and three and one-half miles west of the site of what was then the Town of Athens (Liberty Hill Post Office) and three and one-half miles north and three and one-half mile west of the present-day town of Safford, AL.

Hi John,                                                            November 2017
         My daughter, Jenna Hahn, just showed me your page. Wow, I applaud you for taking on such a massive project!  I did notice a few mistakes and understandable confusion within the Littleton Gwin line.  If you would like, I can send you the info that I have to help clear up some of it.
         I have been doing research off and on since the early 1990's.  Some of my info is from the Birmingham Library and online research.  But much of it is from family.  My mother was Vivian Johnson Hudson, daughter of Donie Gwin Johnson.  Mother lived to be 96 and had an amazing memory until the end.  
        I'm going to look through your site more thoroughly to see where I might be of some help.
        One thing that jumped out at me, though, was about my grandmother's siblings list.  Her birth name was Olis Donie, listed in the census at age 7 as Olis D.  Mother said that her mother hated that name and later had it changed to Donie Bell.  So on the list of children, Donie Bell and Olis D are one and the same (daughter of William Richard Gwin).
        Also there is much confusion about Littleton's wives.  Family lore did indeed say he was married in NC, had two sons that he left behind with his first wife (not sure of her name).  However, Mary Burchfield and Mary Lockhart are the same person.  Mary Polly Burchfield married John Lockhart first.  Then she's listed as Lockhart when she married Littleton Gwin.  He died in 1844, then she married Isaiah Parsons, (listed as Polly Gwin).
        This is just what I can remember without looking through all my papers and notes. I hope this helps!
Sincerely,
Sheila Hudson Quick

John M. Gwin Note: Lise DeShea contacted me in May 2010 to say:

Hi.  My great-grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Gwinn Wallace of Jefferson Co., AL.  She died in 1888 in childbirth.  She had two surviving children, including my grandfather, M. D. Wallace. 


Family lore has it that her father's name was Jepton or Jeptha Gwinn, but my mother says she was told there was a connection to a Judge Gwinn.
I would like to share a photo with you.  This shows Mary Gwinn with her husband, Alfred Robert "Rob" Wallace, and their children.  The baby on Mary's lap is my grandfather, Moltie Dee Wallace, and his sister, Leona is standing.

I found a Mary E. Gwinn listed as a baby in the 1860 census of Freelands, Jefferson, AL, in the home of Stephen and Ellen Gwinn, but I don't know if this is my great-grandmother.  If you have any information that may help me, I would appreciate your assistance. Lise DeShea

As I looked at several census returns, specifically 1880 of Jefferson Co., AL, and 1900 of the same, it at first seemed to me that the 26.01--N. Mary Gwin, below, b. 1862 to Chesley and Nancy Minerva Gwin, might be Lise's g-grandmother--indeed, I even had this photo posted there.  But new data she learned from her mother after we began studying this more closely led her back to her original theory, and I concur.]

l-r:  The Wallace family--"Moltie Dee", Mary Elizabeth (nee Gwin),
Leona D., and Rob.  From the apparent ages of the children,
this photo would've been taken ca. Fall 1885-Spring 1886.
Mary Elizabeth would die in a little over two years.

Subject: More on Jeptha, Ellen and Mary E. Gwinn


...When we last communicated, I had drawn the conclusion that the Stephen T. Gwinn in the 1860 census must have been Jeptha T. Gwinn; there is a baby named Mary E. in his household, and I concluded she must be my great-grandmother.  Today I found a document (attached) on Fold3.com that provides details about Jeptha's death as a result of wounds suffered in the Battle of Missionary Ridge at Chattanooga in 1863.  It's a fascinating document, and it lists Ellen D. Hamer as his widow.  The second attached document is some kind of widow's claim.  You'll note that A.D. Hamer is a witness attesting to Ellen's identity as Jeptha's widow.  The widow's claim also lists *three* minor children; previously I knew only about Mary E. and John D. Gwinn, who was a year old in the 1860 census for "Stephen" T. Gwinn.  (I'm not trying to keep track of the spellings Gwin vs. Gwinn; some of these documents have both spellings on the same page.)

Here's my latest conclusion:  By 1870 I believe Ellen had gotten remarried to a man named James Wallace.  See the attached census page.  Transcriptions erroneously have listed the children with the last name Gain.  But all of the ages match up -- Ellen's, Mary's, John's and even Lina Eugenia (sp? hard to tell from the document), who is listed as 8 years old; therefore, she would have been born about 1862, after the 1860 census and before Jeptha Gwinn's death. 

Now, let me give you the kicker:  I believe this James Wallace was the uncle of Alfred Robert Wallace--aka Rob Wallace, Mary's eventual husband and my great-grandfather!  According to the attached 1870 census, this James Wallace was b. about 1836, which matches up with my previous research about the James Wallace whose parents were Jesse Tate Wallace and Apsie McMillan.  Jesse was a brother to George Washington Wallace, b. 5 Jun 1826, father of Rob Wallace.  I'm convinced that this Ellen Wallace is Jeptha's widow because A. D. Hamer, who attested to Ellen's identity, is the next name on the 1870 census--next door to Ellen and James.  Based on his age, I suspect he may be her father.

What do you think?

Cheers.
Lise

E-Mail: minterfamatverizondotnet
Comments: My father David P Cowen Jr. just passed away 9/2/2008. He was from the GWIN line. His grandmother was Dora Elizabeth GWIN, who married David Cowen.

Today I heard from Kay Cowen Minter. Thanks for letting us know, Kay. We send our condolences. May God comfort your and your family's grieving hearts.

From: Kay Minter; Date: September 9, 2008; To: John Gwin <jmcdgwin@zianet.com> Subject: Re: Thanks for signing my Gwin guest book!
Hello again.
  Thank you for writing. You are obviously a Christian man, and I just wanted to say that my Dad knew where he was going, and it gives me great peace to know that he is in the arms of the Saviour. My husband is a pastor here in Va., and I shared the gospel with my parents years ago when I was a teenager.  He and my Mom lived with my husband and me for two years, and at times it was hard, and I regretted it, but needless to say, I am so so glad that I asked them to come live with us. They moved to a retirement home about 7 mos. ago.  You have down his mother as "Dessie", and her maiden name was Stewart. Her parents, William and Margaret Stewart, were strong Christians who came over from Scotland. So it's nice to see the godly line coming through from parent to child, etc.  My dad's grandfather, whom he called Papa Cowen, was a judge. Judge Gwin. And he married one woman. She died. Then he married Dora, my GGrandmother, who was her sister! Then the other two sisters, who never married, came and lived with them as well. Interesting, isn't it?  Anyway, my dad's issue, if you want it, is: Kay Cowen Minter, [PRIVATE] David Christopher Cowen, [PRIVATE] and Carol Jo Cowen Webb, [PRIVATE] Thanks. Just reading the list of people that I come from gives me some sort of comfort. The Lord is so good.

Hmmm. According to the data in the left column above, Little divorced his first wife, Mary Burchfield, in NC and moved to AL.  Now it's 1860, five years before Littleton dies, and here, living one or two doors from Littleton's sons, Stephen T. and Jeremiah M., is a Mary old enough to be their mother, with a "Chester" (Chesley?) B. and a Maltimore living with her! Parsons, then, could be her name by her second marriage.

Chester B. Parsons 21


Could this be Chesley B. Gwin, living with who may be his mother who is remarried to a Mr. Parsons?

Maltimore Parsons 16


Could this be Maltimore Gwin, living with who may be his mother who is remarried to a Mr. Parsons??

Wm. R. Parsons 10


These could be Mary's three by Mr. Parsons; their real surname would then be Parsons, and the enumerator could have made an understandable error calling Chesley and Maltimore "Parsons" as well--IF, in fact, this is a true scenario.

That there is a Burchfield and wife living next door to Rob and Lyona helps confirm for me that Rob's first wife, Mary Gwinn, and Chesley Gwinn's oldest daughter, Mary, are one and the same.  My reason for (what may appear to some as) this "leap" is the fact that a William Burchfield signed as the surety at the wedding of Chesley himself when he married Nancy Minerva Franklin.  Readers will remember that the first wife, Mary, of Littleton C. Gwinn, was herself a Burchfield, and this Nathaniel must be related as well.

This is Lise's grandfather, Maulty (possibly Maultimore?) D. Wallace, son of Rob and his first wife, Mary Gwinn.  Mault appears to be the only child present in this family who is not a child of Lyona, yet we know from the photo that Lise sent that there is at least one other child of Mary: Leona.  Incredibly, Rob's second wife is also named Leona!

Rob's second wife, Lyona, reports above that she has borne him six children, only five of whom are still alive on this day.  From the ages of Belva (11) and Andrew (7), I'm suggesting that the deceased child was Lyona's secondborn, falling between Belva and Andrew.

This is the son of Littleton Gwin and Mary Burchfield. When I talked to Dr. Carey Gwin by telephone today, he told me that one of the cousins had done some research that showed that an earlier ancestor (whom I suggest to be the grandfather of Mortimer), left Virginia and went to Tennessee, then went to Alabama and left some married children, finally moving to Texas.

From Ruby Moses' last name, Lillie is likely the widow of Mr. Moses.  I see no Moses family anywhere in the precinct, so I gather Mr. Moses' family lived elsewhere. From Ruby's age, he could have died at the very earliest in January 1909.

This is James Chesley Bird Gwin, son of Littleton Gwin. He states here that his father was born in Tennessee, not Alabama as Mortimer has been saying for two censuses.

This son is clearly named for his uncle, Mortimer Gwin, brother of James Chesley Bird Gwin. This could (but does not necessarily) mean that Mortimer, last seen alive in 1910 at age 66, could have died just before this son was born. We've not yet found him in this 1920 census, so the likelihood does exist.

Hi John,

I found your website through genealogy.com.  My great-grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Gwinn Wallace of Jefferson County, Alabama.  She died in 1888 in childbirth.  She had two surviving children, including my grandfather, M. D. Wallace. 

I haven't done much research yet on my connection with the Gwin/Gwinn/Guin etc. family.  Family lore has it that her father's name was Jepton or Jeptha Gwinn, but my mother says she was told there was a connection to a Judge Gwinn.

Your website looks like it will be immensely helpful, and I would like to share a photo with you.  This shows Mary Gwinn with her husband, Alfred Robert "Rob" Wallace, and their children.  The baby on Mary's lap is my grandfather, Moltie Dee Wallace, and his sister was Leona is standing.

I found a Mary E. Gwinn listed as a baby in the 1860 census of Freelands, Jefferson, Alabama, in the home of Stephen and Ellen Gwinn, but I don't know if this is my great-grandmother.  If you have any information that may help me, I would appreciate your assistance.

Cheers.

Hi John,

I think I've found something exciting that will explain the competing theories about Littleton C. Gwin's marriage history and link Jeptha to his wife's family.  I hope this isn't information that you already know.

According to this website (http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/a/r/Ann-M-Carrier/FILE/0007text.txt), Mary Polly Burchfield was married three times:

1.  John H. Lockhart on 3 Apr 1825;
2.  Littleton C. Gwin on 14 Oct 1830;
3.  Isaiah Parsons on 25 June 1846.

This would support the notion that Littleton died in 1844, not 1865 as shown on the gravestone.  Because Mary Polly is buried with Littleton, all I can imagine is that the marker for his grave was purchased upon her death, and someone's memory about his death year was poor.  Interestingly, the website listed above says she had filed a claim for her third husband's pension, but died before it was paid, and her children sought to have the funds released to them to help defray their expenses for burying her (and, perhaps, paying for their father Littleton's marker?!  Who knows!).

Further, I'm attaching an image from the 1850 census, showing who I think are Mary Polly's parents (Thomas and Rebecca Burchfield, both b. in S.C.), with Jeptha, Rebecca and Jeremiah Guynn living in their household.  Jeptha is listed as 14, giving him a computed birthyear of 1836.  So it appears that after Mary Polly remarried in 1846, these children ended up living with her parents.

What a way to celebrate Mother's Day, tracking down the ancestors of my great-grandmother!

Cheers.
Lise


Hi John,

I think I've found Littleton's parents!  I can't take credit for doing anything but digging on Ancestry.com.  Another ancestry member had a transcription of Thomas Guinn/Quinn's will.  His wife was listed on this member's family tree as Elizabeth Littleton.  They had 13 children:  Richard, John, Littleton, Jesse, William, Jeptha Decatur, Thompson, Chesley, Milley, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and Nancy.  The will is signed 2 Oct 1838, and this ancestry member says Thomas died in 1838.  I have attached two files containing the two-page transcription.

Wow!

[John M. Gwin Note:  Lise found this document in May 2010.  Just look at the names we've already seen in this and other lines!  I agree with Lise: these have to be the parents and siblings of this Littleton C. Gwin. Further, though this is entirely speculation based on the children's names, he certainly COULD be a brother of Isham Gwin.]
