Subject: Help with my WINN family while in PA
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2004 16:38:46 EST
Thomas Winn b. cir 1796-1798 Eng. m. 20 May 1823 in Cowesby, Yorkshire,
Eng. to Mary Cossins b. about 1796-1798 Eng. Children were:
Rachel Winn baptised 25 April 1824
Alice Winn born about 1826 Thirsk Yorkshire Eng.
Dawson Winn born 18 Nov 1828 also in Thirsk (my great
grandfather) baptised13 Feb. 1829
Elisabeth Winn born about 1830
Ann Winn baptised 25 April 1833
Benjamin Winn baptised 29 May 1836 Yorkshire Eng.
This WINN family arrived in US on 10 June 1839 via ship Chevalier in
Philadelphia from Liverpool.
They are all found in 1840 Washington Co, PA census. That is the last info I
have on wife Mary Cossins WINN and son Benjamin WINN. Wonder if the two of
them died, or just did not move to Ohio when rest went. Could have been
more children also I suppose.
Thomas and the daughters are found on census records in OH and WV. Dawson
of course I have lots of info on including census, land records, two marriages
(Matilda Underwood/widow Mary Malvina Turner Underwood) and lots of
The surname is always seen as Winn on all documents and census records but
one --when Thomas at age 76 was living with a dtr and her family in Parkersburg,
WV. in Wood County his name was spelled as WYNN.
If anyone has any info or idea of where andhow to search in PA I would be
very greatful for any help or suggestions offered.
Thanks, Virginia WINN Parker CA
