1 Dr. Isaac's biography appears on page 387 of History of Beaver County, Pennsylvania, by Joseph H. Bausman, Knickerbocker Press, New York, 1904, available on line in the Historic Pittsburgh collection of the University of Pittsburgh:

Isaac Winans was born in Milton, Mahoning County, Ohio, July 3, 1811. He was a son of Jacob and Elcy (Sutherland) Winans. His early education was obtained at Milton and Georgetown, Ohio, and he was a close student all his life. He read medicine with Dr. John Delenbaugh of Georgetown, Ohio, and received his degree as Doctor of Medicine from the Cincinnati Medical College, Cincinnati, Ohio. After his graduation he located tor the practice of his profession in New Brighton, Pa., and with the exception of one year (1873) spent in Youngstown, Ohio, remained there from 1844 until 1877. His brother. Dr. John S. Winans, studied with him, and was his partner for a few years shortly after he came to New Brighton. August 1, 1837, he was married to Ann Eliza Sheets of Deerfield, Mahoning County, Ohio. The children of this marriage were Jacob S., Mary E. (now Mrs. Ary W. Browning), Elsie A. (Mrs. John Corbus), J. Alexander, Sarah A. (Mrs. Myron Wood), E. Virginia (Mrs. John W. Evans), Charles W., and Helen (Mrs. S. E. Ward).

Dr. Winans was for many years an elder in the Presbyterian Church of New Brighton. In politics he was a Republican. His death occurred in New Brighton, December 3, 1877, and he is buried in Grove Cemetery, that place.

2 Major Jacob S. Winans wrote a number of letters during his Civil War service which were sold recently at auction. He is listed on page 531 of the History of Beaver County in "Company H, 9th Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Corps, 38th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, recruited at New Brighton for a term of three years, mustered into service, May 24, 1861", appointed Captain 28 Feb 1863 and brevetted Major 13 Mar 1865.
3 Dr. John S. Winans' biography appears immediately after his brother's in History of Beaver County:

John Sutherland Winans, M.D., was born September 25, 1812, in the Western Reserve, at Milton, Mahoning County, Ohio, second son of Jacob and Elcy (Sutherland) Winans. His father was of Dutch descent, first settling to Maryland; his mother of the Scotch Highlanders, direct descendants from the Sutherlands of Sutherlandshire, Scotland. His father was a lieutenant in the War of 1812. His collegiate education began at Western Reserve College, Cleveland, Ohio. He graduated from the Cincinnati College of Medicine and Surgery in 1858, and commenced the practice of his profession in New Brighton, Pa., associated with his brother, Dr. Isaac Winans. Later he practised in Bellaire, Ohio; Rochester, Pa.; and Allegheny, until the time of his death, February 5, 1881. He was a member of Beaver County and Allegheny County medical societies. Dr. Winans was married in New Brighton to Eliza Maria Reno, only daughter of Thomas Thorn Reno, son of Rev. Francis Reno, the first Episcopal minister west of the Alleghenies. His widow and six children survive him; three sons, John S. F., Louis A. R., Thomas R., and three daughters, Elsie M., Margaret A., and Lyda L. (now Mrs. Franklin A. Dean), all residing in Pittsburg.

4 When I transcribed this page, I commented:

Since this person is apparently a female, her first name should probably be Frances.

A visitor to the Winans message boards gives her name as Eliza E. Winans, born 1860, and states:
In the 1860 census she's listed with the initials E. E. V. and in 1870 she's listed as Eliza E. Winans... She died before 1904. The History of Beaver County was published in that year and the bio on her father Dr. John Winans did not mention her as one of his surviving daughters...
5 This Earl Winans appears to have been mentioned on page 3 of the Columbus (IN) Daily Herald, 9 Sep 1901, quoted on RootsWeb's IN-SOUTH-CENTRAL mailing list:


Earl Winans left for Purdue yesterday morning, and Messrs. John Scott, Clarence Hall and Clifford Newsom went up this morning.
