These are miscellaneous pages from the Conrad Winans section of Winans Family Genealogy, which is broken down into several subsections for ease of access and maintenance. The pages were especially interesting because of their mentions of a number of our Winans relatives who traveled to California immediately after gold was discovered. One of these 49ers even incorporated the official California state motto "Eureka!" into the name of her daughter who was born in 1856.

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

Abstracted obit, Elkhart Weekly Review, 19 Aug 1880, pg 4:

Mary Ann Winans, b. Pennsylvania, 28 May 1801, d. 9 Aug 1880, Elkhart, Indiana, when five years old, moved to Ohio with parents, married there 1821 to Samuel Winans, who d. 23 Apr 1879.

To homestead near Elkhart 1836, lived there almost 43 years. Seven children, four sons and three daughters, three sons and two daughters now living. One son in Iowa and one in Kansas.

The same person also posted the following, which bears a certain resemblance to the information on page 40 for Samuel Winans' daughter, Eliza Ann Winans, who did marry a Conrad Cook:

Abstracted obit, Elkhart Daily Review, 26 Jan 1914, pg 8:

Mrs. Anne Elizabeth Cook, lived near Elkhart since 1831, d. home of daughter, Mrs. AW Brown, Goshen. Burial in Grace Lawn cemetery, Elkhart. Born Piqua, Ohio, 1 Dec 1828, age three years to Elkhart County by parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Winans. Widow of Conrad Cook, who d. 1892. Surviving two daughters, Mrs. Brown of Goshen and Mrs. Louis B Cooke of Chicago, 2 grandchildren, one gr grandchild.

2 A researcher has informed me that Frazier Winans married Leah McMahan, who was born 19 December 1831 in PA, and was kind enough to send us photographs of both Frazier and Leah. I'm looking forward to receiving more information about this line.
3 With the help of other researchers, I've been able to assemble a great deal of additional and, I hope, more accurate information on Stephen and Eliza, their children and their descendants. For instance:

George Powell's birthplace was actually in Illinois. Although there was a Jacksonville in Tuolumne county, California (see historic marker), it is unlikely any Anglo-American children would have been born in California as early as 1836. But there is a Jacksonville, IL, and George is listed in both the 1870 and 1880 censuses as being born in Illinois.

Please visit Stephen and Eliza's page in this Carey Family Album to learn more about them and their descendants.
4 Susan is listed in the Corey/Cory Surname Database. Her husband's name is given as Linus S. Cory. According to this genealogy site, the couple's two daughters were born in Ohio.
5 James L. Winans' obituary states that his sister, Mary Ann (Winans) Smith, was living in Alabama at the time of James' death in 1918.
6 There is extensive additional information on James Lewis Winans and his descendants in our Petaluma page.
7 Mrs. Egy's information about James Winans' wives doesn't appear to be correct. Since O. C. Winans' Winans Family contains similar misinformation, both may have relied on erroneous data from Major Ira's files. The following represents my own best guess as to who James' wives were:
  1. Abigail Rollins. The Miami County Marriage Index lists an 1834 marriage between James Winans and Abagail Rollins. This appears to be the woman who bore James' first child, and died shortly after childbirth. Winans and Rollins were both very common surnames in Miami county in the early 19th century. A fellow researcher, Abigail (Anthony) Deeter (1971-2013), informed us:
    James Winans married Abagail Rollins April 10, 1834 in Miami County, Ohio. Abigail Rollins was the daughter of Josiah Rollins & Nancy Tucker. Abigail was born November 27, 1810 and died June 2, 1835.
    Abigail, the researcher, touched many of us with her willingness to share information and answer questions. We learned, with sadness, that she died tragically in an auto accident in St. Marys, Ohio, 24 October 2013.
  2. Martha Ashby, who married James 28 Sep 1837. She is listed with James and their four children in Osolo township, Elkhart county, IN, in the 1850 census. She was born about 1820 in Ohio, and according to the biography of their son, died before James and the children moved to California.
  3. Emeline F. Olds, who was born 10 May 1809 in New York and died 25 Oct 1894 in California. She married James in California. She and James and his two youngest children are enumerated together in Bolinas, Marin county, CA, in 1860, and she and James are in San Rafael in 1870. After James' death, Emeline remained in San Rafael, where she was enumerated in 1880 with her widowed 66-year-old brother, Daniel Olds. My guess that Olds was Emeline's maiden surname was confirmed by a study of A Good Life: A Study of Dairy Farming in the Olema Valley, by D. S. Livingston, published in 1995 by the U. S. National Park Service. According to this book, Emeline's brothers, Daniel and Nelson, acquired land in the Olema Valley in 1856 and her sister, Martha (Olds) Powell, also lived in the area. Was Bailey her surname from a previous marriage, or an error on Mrs. Egy's part?
8 There is extensive additional information on David Madison Winans and his descendants in our Petaluma page.
9 Sarah Elizabeth Winans did not die young, but lived to a ripe old age. There is extensive additional information on Sarah and her descendants in our Petaluma page.
10 Nancy Jane Winans lived to adulthood. There is extensive additional information on Nancy and her descendants in our Petaluma page.
11 Although Mrs. Egy lists Eula and Neska as Hannah (Winans) Beerbower's children, Eula and Neska Alexander are actually her grandchildren. See Hannah's section of the Petaluma page for details.
12 The correct name of this town is Saugerties. It is in Ulster county, NY.
13 Egbert's tragic death by drowning was reported in the Thursday 9 Sep 1915 issue of the Syracuse Herald:


The body of Egbert Winans, the Minoa farmer, whose body was found floating in Limestone creek near that village yesterday afternoon was removed to the home to-day by Undertakers Burns & O'Brien. The funeral will be held there to-morrow afternoon with burial at Minoa. Mr. Winans had been missing from his home since last Saturday. He is survived by a daughter, four sons and two brothers.

14 The news of the death of his grandson, whose name appears to have been Melvin, not Malvin, appeared in The Post Standard, Syracuse, NY, 17 July 1917:



Young Companion Unable to Aid Swimmer Beyond His Depth
Fell from Bridge to Pool While Returning to Home Near Minoa – Lad's Funeral Thursday

Melvin Winans, 14, was drowned in Limestone creek near Minoa at 11:00 o'clock yesterday morning at almost the same place his grandfather, Egbert Winans, met his death two years ago.

The boy was the only son of William and Clara Farrance Winans, whose home is near the New York Central Railroad bridge over the creek. Accompanied by a smaller boy, the lad went to the creek to swim, his companion watching him from the bank. Young Winans got beyond his depth and sank.

The other boy, too young to assist him, ran to the Winans home and told what had happened. Members of the family and neighbors went to the creek and in a short time, the body was recovered.

In September 1915, the boy's grandfather, while returning home from Minoa at night, fell into the stream near the railroad bridge and his body was not found until two days later.

Besides his parents, the Winans boy is survived by one sister. The funeral will be held from the family home Thursday morning and later in St. Mary's Church, Minoa. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery.

15 Nathaniel F. and Joseph H. Winans and their descendants are mentioned in the history of the First Baptist Church of Toulon, Illinois. The history mentions their Lyons Farm, NJ, roots.
The Winans family is another one which has been prominent in the work of the church for many years. We find that N. F. Winans was one of the very early members of the church and he served as Trustee and on many appointed committees. He was evidently acquainted with Elder J. M. Stickney, the first pastor of the church, as they had both come to Stark County from Lyon's Farm, New Jersey. He was the grandfather of Frazee Winans who later became a member of the church and married Miss Faye Dexter. He was followed to Stark County from Lyon's Farm by Joseph Henry Winans and his son William H. Winans who settled on the present Winans homestead in Goshen Township. Mr. J. H. Winans was a strong Christian leader and he organized and became Superintendent of a Sunday School which met in the Quinn school house and he served here for a period of twenty years. Later when the Winans school house was built, he started a Sunday School there and carried on its work for many years. He became a member of this church in 1884 and was active in its affairs up to the time of his death. His two children, W. H. Winans and Mrs. May Winans Price, also became members of the church here and were active in its affairs. Mrs. W. H. Winans but recently passed away. Some of their children continued as members of this church and interested in its work were Harry [Harry?] Winans, Mrs. Lyda [Harriet Elizabeth?] Price, Mrs. Bessie Bamber, and Elber Winans. Robert and Elsie (Dutton) Winans are still members at the celebration of the sesquicentennial. Their son William with wife Barbara (Windish) and two children, Wendy and Joe are still active in the church even today (1998).
There are numerous other mentions of Winans family members in various pages at the church's web site.
