To whom it may concern:
I have my great-grandmother's scrapbook and many other newspaper clippings from 1900. She has a complete history to the Winchester Family in this area. It names the children and the spouses and the wife's maiden names AND parents of the wives.
I am a descendent of this family. I checked everything by the census board and it is correct. The article is written by a Wincester in Mineral Springs, NC. A lot of information was in his family bible AND he researched it in Washington in 1910!!!!!
Email me all those interested.
Just to get you started:
Douglas and William Daniel Winchester in 1772.
Douglas m. Sarah Matthews in 1772
Settled near Mineral Springs, NC
Sallie married Andrew Secrest
I have so much information. I can not possible include it all. The article published at the turn of the century is quite extensive.
