5th Gen

JACOB was b 20 Sept 1777 d 15 Nov 1870 at Waterford, Pa. (per IW). He was b in Northampton Co., Pa. and was named for his oldest half-brother who died on a British prison ship. He md 13 Dec 1797 Catherine Delong b 4 Apr 1781 (per M.C.) d 1857 (per IW). She was the dau of John Delong Sr. and sister of Ellener, wife of Jacob's half-brother Isaac (1-5-1-3-5). This marriage is recorded in Capt. Philip Shrawder's Docket Book, North County. Catherine was b in Northampton Co. They had come to Ohio in June 1807 with Jacob's brothers, Isaac and James and the aged father. Jacob and Catherine were living in the home of their dau Anna Kenneman in Milton, Trumbull (now Mahoning) Co., in 1850. In 1860 Jacob was living at the home of dau Rachel Porter, erroneously recorded as born in N. J. rather than Pa., Crawford Co. History states that Catherine died in Pa.
Ref: IW., JDB. There was a David living with Anna Kenneman who was b ca 1827. He may have been a son of Jacob. Census records furnished by John Balwin, birth dates from data of IW.

LEWIS was b 13 July 1772 d 15 May 1861 in Stanton Twp., Troy, Ohio md his cousin b 15 Aug 1784 d 29 July 1862 in Miami Co., Ohio dau of Benjamin-4 and Mary (Sutton) Winans (1-5-5-2). The above birth and death dates are on the records at the Raper Chapel Cemetery in Miami Co., Ohio. The birth date for Lewis has been given as 1778 and his death date as 1855 but this doesn't agree with the cemetery records. Also it has been said that Lewis md a second wife by the name of Lydia who was a cousin to his first wife Lydia. But I do not see how this could be true if he died in either 1855 or 1861 as Lydia (1st wife) died in 1862. This 2nd Lydia Winans was supposed to be a dau of an Uncle Kelsey Winans but no record has been found of him. AWE.

1 Amy's obituary was posted to a Winans discussion group:

Abstracted obit: Elkhart Daily Review, Thurs, 14 Apr 1887, pg 2:

Amy R Winans, b. near Troy, Miami Co, Ohio, 20 Jul 1811, d. Osolo twp, Elkhart Co, 7 Apr 1887. Married David Clark Winans 1828, 1836 moved to Elkhart Co. (description of area at the time given) 1855 her husband died in California, she had assembled neighbors for his homecoming when she received word of his death.

Four children grew to adulthood, 2 survive, James L of Petaloma, Cal, and Mrs. Nicholas Smith of Elkhart county, with whom she spent declining years.

Member of ME church. Interred in Johnson cemetery, a part of the old Winans homestead, donated by her husband a half century ago for burial purposes.

2 Mrs. Egy may be off by about 5 years on this Benjamin's birth date. The 1860 census lists him as 79 years old, living with his son Richard in Adams county, Indiana. O. C. Winans' book gives a 1780 birth date, based on information supplied by his descendants.
3 According to Highland Cemetery's burial records and James' tombstone, he was born 28 Dec 1834 and died 14 May 1906.
4 This may be a misreading by Mrs. Egy of a source document, since there is no evidence for a second daughter, but we've learned that there was a George W. Winans among John Winans' sons.
