John M. Gwin

Meet John's and Jane's Nine Children!

Here they are in summary--birth order is believed to be correct:


24.01--Mary Gwin--b. ca.1813-1816 (33 in 1850 Census)d. unk.; m1. 27 Dec. 1838 to Drury H. Roark; m2. on 17 May 1849 to Mr. Abel Turner
24.02--Thomas Gwin--b. ca. 1814-1816; data unk.
24.03--Isom Gwin, b. 17 Mar 1817 in Dallas Co., AL territory; d. 7 Dec 1853; m. Mary Burdine Wilson; MBWG m2. 28 Jan 1859 to John Steadman
24.04--William Gwin  (18 Dec 1820--29 Apr 1889); m. 12 (13?) May 1842 Rosann "Roe" Carlisle Jones Wilson
24.05--Sarah Gwin, b. ca. 1826; d. 31 Mar 1885); m. 18 Mar 1841 to Louis Basset
24.06--Ann Gwin (ca. 1827--1845); m. 19 Jan 1843 to Joseph Lavalette Basset
24.07--Martha J. Gwin
(ca.1828--unk).; m. 22 Apr 1847 to Jesse Comalander

24.08--Chesley R. Gwin; (ca.1828--after 1880); m1. 20 Mar 1850 Frances E. "Fannie" Bell; m2. a widow, Mrs. Blevins
24.09--Louisa A. Gwin; (ca. 1829-30--b. bef. 1830 census); m1?. Mr. Gaviness; m2. on 17 May 1849 Mr. Wm. G. (or J.) McKnight.

Here's Martha J. Gwin in more detail with her husband Jesse Comalander

24.07--Martha J. Gwin, b. ca. 1828; d. betw. 1870 and 1880; probably bd. in Webster Parish, LA; m. 22 Apr 1847 (DCAMR, 1818-1918* concurs) in Dallas Co., AL, to Jesse Comalander (b. ca. 1804 in SC; d. unk.; bd. unk.; m1. on an unknown date ca. 1838-9 to an unknown person [see the age of Jesse's oldest son, below] and evidently second on 26 Oct 1844 [this from the book of  DALLAS COUNTY, ALABAMA, MARRIAGES, MARRIAGE BOOK I: 1818 - 1845, pg 281] to Amanda J. Harris [b. 13 Sep 1824; d. 3 Jul 1846 according to her gravestone at the Old Cahaba Cem.]); at least 5 ch., i.e., by Martha
[listed as Martha J. Commelander, age 22 and b. in AL, in the 6 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];
[Martha is not yet found in the 1860 census];
[listed as Martha J. Comelander, age 45 in the 8 Jun 1870 in census of Ward 4, Minden P. O., Claiborne Par., LA]


[listed as Jesse Commelander, age 46 and b. in SC, in the 6 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];
[listed as Jesse Comelander, Jr., brick mason, age 66 and b. in SC, in the 8 Jun 1870 in census of Ward 4, Minden P. O., Claiborne Par., LA]
[listed as Jessie Comelander, farmer, widowed, age 77 and b. in NC/NC/NC (sic), in the Jun 1880 in census of Webster Par., LA]
 
Comalander, Jesse & Amanda J. Harris 26 Oct 1844 --- 281 

[JMG NOTE: The existence of this seventh child of John and Jane Gwin came as a complete surprise to me, as Uncle James did not have any records of her. Barbara Smith had sent the name with a summary of her late husband Roy's work on the family, the printout dated 18 Sep 1995; therefore, evidently Roy had known about Martha for some time. But none of the documentation was included, so I had no idea whence it came.

The existence of Jesse Comalander was documented, however, appearing in the Wed., 12 Dec 1849, entry of Rev. Cotten's diary where he records, regarding one of the prisoners who was to be executed by hanging that day, that "His hands were bound behind him in an unfeeling manner by Jesse Comalander."  As this event occurred some two and a half years after the recorded marriage date of Jesse and Martha, Cotten would have had no cause to mention as fact that Jesse was married to John Gwin's daughter Martha.

And now, 25 Oct 2001, I read in the 1850 Dallas Co. census that Jesse Comalander, age 46, a mechanic, and native of SC, did indeed reside at residence 560 (valued at 2800 dollars) with a woman, "Martha J.", age 22 of AL (young enough to be his daughter!) and five children: J. W., a male age 11; M. J., a female age 8; Elizabeth, age 6; G. P., a male age 3; and Jesse, a male age 1.  But if she is John and Jane's daughter, then she is stepmom to at least `two of the five children--and possibly twin sister to Chesley, also listed in the same census as age 22!

But now in July 2005 I have received all the abovementioned info from Elizabeth Daudril, and so I have started this page, combining the little I already had with her additional data.]




And here are their known children:

25.01--J. W. Comalander, a stepson to Amanda and Martha, b. ca. 1839 to Jesse and his unknown first wife (age 11 in 1850 census);
[listed as J. W. Commelander, age 11 and b. in AL, in the 4 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];

25.02--M. J. Comalander, a stepdaughter to Amanda and Martha, b. ca. 1842 to Jesse and his unknown first wife (age 8 in 1850 census);

[listed as M. J. Commelander, age 8 and b. in AL, in the 4 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];

25.03--Elizabeth Comalander, a stepdaughter to Martha and probably Amanda, b. ca. 1844 to Jesse and either his first wife or Amanda (age 6 in 1850 census--and age 15 in the 1860 census where she is living (visiting?) in Cahawba, AL, in the Grice home with her step-grandparents, John and Jane Gwin!); [JMG Note: If this child were born in 1844, she was probably the daughter of Jesse's first wife, and quite possibly it was complications during her birth that killed this first wife and drove him to Amanda.]

[listed as Elizabeth Commelander, age 6 and b. in AL, in the 4 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];

25.04--T. E. Comalander, b. unk.--no birth date listed on gravestone; d. 28 Jun 1846, five days before the death of Jesse's first wife Amanda Harris Comalander; bd. in the Old Cahaba Cem., Cahaba, AL; my best-guess scenario is that the baby died at birth and that Amanda died shortly after of complications therefrom; this then is probably Jesse's child, but certainly not Martha's; also bd. there are a woman likely to be Jesse's sister and a child, b. five days before the "sister" dies; therefore, she is likely the mother of this child.

[not listed in the 4 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];

25.05--George P. or U. Comalander, possibly a stepson or (more probably) son to Martha, b. ca. 1847 or early 1848 (age 3 in 1850 census); m. 14 Nov 1872 in Webster Parish, LA, to Elizabeth "Betty" P. Johnson (b. unk.; d. ca. 1888); d. 1880, according to family lore; 1 known ch.

[listed as G. P. Commelander, age 3 and b. in AL, in the 4 Nov 1850 in census of Cahawba Beat, Dallas Co., AL];
[listed as George Comelander, works on farm, age 22 and b. in AL, in the 8 Jun 1870 in census of Ward 4, Minden P. O., Claiborne Par., LA]
[listed as George U. Comelander, age 32 and b. in AL/NC/NC (sic), in the Jun 1880 in the census of Webster Par., LA]

560 Comelander Jesse 46 M W Mechanic $2800 SC A widower who evidently needed a mother for his three (if not four) children 

Comelander Martha 22 F W

AL This is Martha J. Gwin, my gg-grandaunt and seventh child of my ggg-grandparents, John and Jane Walker Gwin.

Comelander I. W. 11 M W

AL Could be J.W. instead of I. W.

Comelander M. I. 8 F W

AL Could be M. J. instead of M. I.

Comelander Eliz. 6 F W

AL Could be the same Eliz. as is seen in the 1870 census of Montgomery Co., AL.

Comelander G. P. 3 M W

AL Probably the first child of Martha (Jesse's fifth--four by Amanda). If George were born in 1847 and they were married on 22 Apr 1847, that means that either he was born pre-maturely or he was conceived out of wedlock. If he were born in Jan 1848 or later, his age in the 1850 census could be one or at most two.

George's middle initial is shown as P here but as U in the marriage book below and in all the censuses in which he appears.


Comelander Jesse 1 M W

AL Possibly this is the only one of these five children who is the child of Martha and Jesse, as most if not all of the others are Martha's step-children, Jesse's by his first wife, Amanda Harris.
[John M. Gwin NOTE:  The LDS IGI file (of legendary inaccuracy!), while listing correctly our Martha J. Gwin marrying on 22 Apr 1847 in Dallas Co. to Jesse Comelander, ALSO LISTS a Martha J. Gwin marrying on 28 Oct 1847--only 6 months later--in Dallas Co. to a Mr. Richard West! However, I believe this to be either another Martha J. Gwin or a transcription error.]

John, thank you so much for your kind answer. Perhaps by putting our heads together we can figure out a little more about the Comalander/Gwin family.

I had already been to your excellent website! What a wonderul job you have done. "The Bridge to Life" is a wonderful way to explain the plan of salvation...and I quickly bookmarked it for easy reference.

Now for what we learn about Jesse Comalander from the census: You already had the 1850 Dallas Co., AL reference.

I found him in the 1860 Lowndes Co., AL census, Mt. Willing, page 694, living with John Quinn and his wife, who by the way were found on page 25 of the 1850 Dallas Co., AL census, Cahaba P. O. Still have not located Jesse's family in the 1860 census...

AL Ancestry.com mistranscribed this as Cometander   When I first saw Elizabeth here in 1860, I assumed her mother, Martha, and perhaps her father, Jesse, had died. But in July 2005, Elizabeth Daughdril shared that she had found both alive and well in 1870 in Claiborne Parish, LA! She'd also found Jesse in 1860 in Lowndes Co., AL, so clearly there were other things going on than we had assumed. Current speculation is that John and/or Jane were very ill and needed caregivers, so a combination of the Grices, grandson Walter Roark, and step-granddaughter Elizabeth may have turned out to serve as care-givers. We know Jane would die before 1870, but she is clearly alive as late as 16 Feb 1864, as her name appears on a record of sale of land on Cahawba on that date.
...By 1870 Jesse and family were in Claiborne Parish, LA, page 113, Minden: Jesse M. COMELENDER, 66, b. SC, Brickmason; Martha J., 45, b. AL; George, 22, b. AL; Jesse, 20, b. AL; Henrietta, 16, b. AL; Lucy A., 13, b. AL; William T., 9, b. LA; Walter A., 3, b. LA...

Jesse M.  Comelander 66 1804 SC $350.00
Brickmason This is our Jesse.

Martha J. Comelander 45 1825 AL
Keeping house
Martha J. (Jane?) Gwin, my gg-grandaunt, daughter of John and Jane Walker Gwin. She will die before the 1880 census, as not only is she absent there, but Jesse is listed as a widower.

George Comelander 22 1848 AL
works on farm
He will marry Miss E. P. Johnson in two years (1872), who, according to "family lore" reported by Ms. Elizabeth Daughdril, will die before the decade is out, as a wifeless George and a child we believe will be his son are living with George's dad in 1880.

Jesse Comelander 20 1850 AL
works on farm
Jesse may have died before 1880 but more likely is married and living away from the homeplace; regardless, he is absent in that census.

Henrietta Comelander 16 1854 AL
at school
(ASWTY)
Henrietta will marry Louis A. Barnard the next year, 1871, at age 17, so she will likely appear in 1880 in his family. She "attended school within the year" (ASWTY).

Lucy A. Comelander 13 1857 AL
at school
(ASWTY)
Lucy appears in the next census at age 22. But she'll marry William Hall in 1876, so where is he in 1880, since she appears then in her father's home with her maiden name again?

William T. Comelander 9 1861 LA
at school
(ASWTY)
William appears in the next census at age 19.

Walter A. Comelander 3 1867 LA
at home Walter does not appear in the 1880 census and has likely died in childhood.

Ms. Elizabeth Daughdril writes: Allen Hudson in a post on Ancestry's Comalander message board says he is descended from Jesse Comalander's daughter Catherine who married (1) Adam Crusious and (2) James Matheson.  I found Catherine and her second husband in the 1870 Montgomery Co., AL, census, page 478:

Mary E Matheson 5 1865



Elizabeth Comalander 26 1844 Seamstress

In 1880 the family is found in Webster Parish, LA. (It is likely that they did not move...that the parish name changed. Webster Parish was formed in 1871 from parts of Claiborne, Bienville, and Bossier Parishes.) Recorded on page 288, 4th Ward: Jessie COMALAUDER, 77, Wd., b. NC (obviously an error); George U., son, 32, b. AL; Lucy A., dau., 22, b. LA; William, son, 19, b. LA; Larkin, g/son, 5, b. LA.

Jessie Comalander 77 1803 Self Widowed NC/NC/NC farmer Elizabeth Daughdril, from whom I received this data, says that Jesse's POB in this report is "obviously an error," all other sources indicating his POB to be SC. I imagine that the census taker heard that his parents' POB was NC and just put down NC for him as well

George U. Comalander 32 1848 son "NA" AL/NC/NC
Was age 22 in the 1870 census; for the reasons stated below, I believe he is a widower here and the father of Larkin.
The father's and mother's POB are clearly wrong here as well...

Lucy A. Comalander 22 1858 daughter Widowed LA/NC/NC
Lucy was age 13 in the 1870 census; she may be a widow here, having married in 1876; however, her last name appears to be Comalander here, not Hall, posing something of a dilemma.

William  Comalander 19 1861 son "NA" LA/NC/NC
Will was age 9 in the 1870 census.

Larkin Comalander 5 1875 grandson
LA/NC/NC
This is, according to the "family lore" reported by Ms. Elizabeth Daughdril, the son of George and his wife Elizabeth P. Johnson; Elizabeth has died (when Larkin was 2 or 3, ca. 1878), and George will die in a matter of months, perhaps weeks, at age 32 or 33. But I've not seen Larkin in the Comalander family of the 1880 census of Webster Parish, LA. Elizabeth, is this from lore only?

G. U. Comalander E. P. Johnson 14 Nov 1872 Jesse Fuller Loose papers File #1 126 Elizabeth Daughdril says, "Now for family lore: Almost 30 years ago when I began this fascinating hobby, I was told that Samuel Caldwell Johnston's youngest daughter, Elizabeth (Betty), married George Comalander, and that she died when her only child, Larkin, was only about 2 or 3 years old and that George died when Larkin was 4 or 5. That seems to agree with the 1880 census. (I descend from S. C. Johnston's older daughter Mary Ann.)"

And some interesting queries from Elizabeth--can you help?


Perhaps you can help me unravel this -- In researching Jesse Comalander who married Martha J. Gwin in Dallas Co., AL, I found J. M. Cumberlander, 55, Brick mason, b. SC in the 1860 Lowndes Co., AL census living with John Quinn, 59, b. NC and his wife Francis (sp), 56, b. SC.  The marriage records of that county record that Jesse M. Cumberlander signed the bond for their daughter Juliette's marriage to John Luther Maynard. Frances "Quinn" is listed in those marriage records as Frances Cumberlander Quinn.

 
I did not find Jesse Comalander's family anywhere in the 1860 census, and pick him up again in the 1870 Claiborne Parish, LA census, page 113. It was here that Jesse and Martha's son George married into my Johnston family.
 
Thank you for any enlightenment you may offer.

Subject: Elizabeth COMALANDER

Good Morning John,
I am glad to hear that you are still interested in the family of Jesse Comalander.  Several things about him and his family are puzzling.  Dallas Co., AL, records seem to indicate that he might have been married perhaps three times, that perhaps Martha J. Gwin was his third wife, not his second.
 
Allen Hudson in a post on Ancestry's Comalander message board says he is descended from Jesse Comalander's daughter Catherine who married (1) Adam Crusious and (2) James Matheson.  I found Catherine and her second husband in the 1870 Montgomery Co., AL, census, page 478:

Matheson, James................41..........Scotland..........Painter
Catherine J.........................34..........AL
Mary E.................................5..........AL
Comalander, Elizabeth........26..........AL ..................Seamstress
This would appear to be the same Elizabeth found in Dallas County in 1850.  If Catherine is indeed her sister, Catherine could not be the daughter of Martha J. Gwin.  What do we have here?  Two Jesses? Several Martha J. Gwins?  Any ideas?

Elizabeth

Ron, Thanks for your reply. What info. do you have about Jesse Comalander? I know that Jesse was born in South Carolina circa 1804 and came with his family to Dallas Co. Ala. in the early 1800's. I descend from his daughter Catherine who first married Adam Crusious and then James Matheson in 1859. It is through this second marriage that I descend. Let me know what data you have on this line when convenient. Hudson Allen, Austin, Tx.

I have been told that my great, great, great grandfather was a stowaway on a ship from Scotland, and that he got off at Charleston, South Carolina. I just learned that there were Comalanders in Chapin, South Carolina, which, I think, is near Columbia.

My name is Ava G. Comalander and I live in Pensacola, FL - the names you mention are cousins of mine. We are from Alabama. You have several cousins that live in Houston, Texas. Cedric and Terry Comalander are my brothers. Terry has children your age. Terry's oldest is named Stephanie who is 20 now, her brother is named Mathew (17/18 years old) and the youngest is named Elizabeth (2 years of age). Terry and his wife Theresa has recently relocated to Livingston, Texas I beleive. However Cedric still lives in Houston. I also have a sister named Brenda who lives in Fairhope, AL and 2 younger brothers Scot and Jason who live in Citronell, AL. My fathers name is James W. Comalander who lives in Foley, AL. One of his brothers was named Robert. I believe this would be your Robert, Sr. - Robert, Jr. and Virginia would be my cousins and my fathers nephew and niece. You may email me and I'll send you my fathers phone number and he can lead you futher in your search.

My mother was a Comalander from near Pensacola. I remember her telling me a story about Jesse and Jacob Comalander. All I remember (this is from a child's memory) is that she said the the two brothers stowed away in salt barrels to come to America from Ireland. The original name was Cumberlander, I think. Jacob was my ancester. Most of the Comalanders are in South Carolina, Texas, or the northern panhandel of Fla./Alabama.
