>From "Hardin Co. History 1818 to 1930" by Tony Hays:

Daniel Winchester served as a private in the North Carolina Line. The
Winchester family, there were eight in Daniel's household, had come to
Hardin Co. prior to 1830. He bought a good deal of land, but about 1843, he
and his family disappeared from Hardin County.
