Page navigation bar — In March 2015, we began using a different format for these bars which you see above and below the text of each subsection of Mrs. Egy's book. Instead of listing all the pages we've transcribed so far, we condensed this feature by showing only the page ranges of other subsections, but individual page numbers within this subsection. As time permits, we'll make it standard.

1 There are some discrepancies here that need to be investigated. Mrs. Egy was apparently unaware that Richard remarried after Rosabelle's death. She lists Rosabelle's death as occuring in 1861, Richard's second wife's biography says she and Richard were married in 1863. It provides exact birth dates for all the children, with Charles' birth as occuring in 1862 (which agrees with his 1870 census record). Ira and William are apparently from Richard's second marriage, but whose child is Charles?
2 William's second wife's name is spelled Emeline in the 1880 census record, which also implies that Crist wasn't her maiden name, since William's household includes a stepson, Oliver T. Crist.
3 Although the same 1880 census lists a 9-year-old daughter, Carrie C. Winans, with William and Emeline's family in Fairbanks, IN, Mrs. Egy lists his name correctly. I've heard from his great-grandson, Cary Winans Tucker, who says that census records indicate Cary C. Winans "was living in Marion, Franklin County, Ohio in 1930..." and that he "may have died in 1933."
4 Glen Winans tells us this daughter is listed as Nora Paul in Benjamin's will and suggests Mrs. Egy could have transposed the husband's name, which was possibly Scott Paul.
5 There's no such town in Minnesota, but there's an Amador township in Chisago county.
6 Ira Edward "Ed" Winans' tombstone is inscribed 28 Apr 1899.
7 There's no such town in Indiana, but there's a Gosport in Owen county.
8 Mary Ann, whose tombstone lists her birth year as 1842, is buried next to James in Wichita. Is it possible Mrs. Egy, or her source of information, confused Whittier with Wichita? Perhaps one of James and Mary Ann's descendants can fill in the correct information here?
9 Alta May's tombstone reads Aug. 20, 1878.
10 The additional information on Ida Mary's family was provided by one of her descendants. We welcome additions and corrections to any of the information you see in these pages.
11 John's biography appeared in Counties of Howard and Tipton, Indiana, F.A. Battey & Co., Chicago, 1883:

JOHN WINANS, farmer, owns sixty acres of good land in Section 30, Cicero Township, Tipton County. He is a native of Harrison County, Ky., and was born October 18, 1836, and is the son of John Winans. He spent his boyhood days in Scott County, Ky.; and engaged in the distillery business. In 1859, he came to Indianapolis and began butchering for some time, and in 1865 enlisted in the United States service in Company I, One Hundred and Fifty-fourth Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and served about six months. He then returned to Indianapolis and worked in a saw mill, and in the fall of 1865 came to Tipton County, where he worked in a saw mill for some time. He then engaged in farming, which occupation he has since continued. In November, 1882, he purchased sixty acres in Section 30, where he still lives. He was married in this county, April 4, 1867, to Miss Caroline M. Clark. They have two children, Oscar C. and Laura J. Mr. Winans is a Democrat in politics, is an Odd Fellow and a member of the G. A. R.

12 In view of her father's date of death, it is likely Lucy was born in 1858 rather than 1868! Also, the other daughter, Louise, is probably a granddaughter, a daughter of Lucy and Hardin's son George. We welcome any information from this family's descendants on such areas of confusion!
13 There are several references to Xenia, Ohio, a town in Greene county, and also to a Xenia, Illinois. Although there is a village named Xenia in Clay county, IL, I suspect the mentions of a town of this name in Illinois are erroneous.
14 Alvin's biography appeared in Portrait and Biographical Album of Greene and Clark Counties, Ohio, Chapman Bros., Chicago, 1890:

ALVEN A. WINANS. Among the young men who worthily represent the press of Greene County this gentleman should justly be mentioned. He publishes and edits the Herald, at Cedarville, and although yet in his early manhood he has been connected with literature for many years. The Herald is an eight-page, five column [illegible] and has a local circulation of five hundred copies. It also enjoys a lucrative trade in its job department, and does a good advertising business.

Xenia, Ohio, was the native city of our subject, and his birth occurred February 10, 1863. His parents, Judge James J. and Caroline E. (Morris) Winans, of Xenia, Ohio. Of their family of children, Alven A. was the ninth in order of birth, and received a good common-school education at the Xenia public and private schools. When only thirteen years of age he began to learn type-setting in the office of the Xenia Daily Herald, also acting as carrier. Subsequently, he thoroughly learned the printer's trade, and in 1885 became part owner of the Democrat News at Xenia; this he successfully assisted in conducting for over a year. He came to Cedarville in 1877 and took charge of the Cedarville Herald for R. H. Young. In November, 1888, he purchased the office and plant, and since then has ably conducted it alone.

Mr. Winans was married January 1, 1889, to Rose E. Owens, and they are the parents of one child, named Mary. Mrs. Winans is a native of Spring Valley, Ohio, and was born January 31, 1869. Her father was Peter Owens, who was born in Ireland, while the mother, Amanda (Smith) Owens, was a native of Ohio. Mrs. Winans is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. By their genial ways and many charming traits of character this worthy couple have earned the respect of the people of Cedarville.

15 "Valles" is undoubtedly Ciudad Valles, in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. lists a book by a Mrs. F. H. Soltero, The Romance of the Pilgrim Missions in Mexico. The Wesleyan Church's web site includes an article by Jane Higle, Celebrating the Missionary Spirit – Francisco (1892–1977) and Nettie (1891–1957) Soltero, which includes wonderful biographies of this couple.
