Looking for information on Dr. Mrs. John DeCamp Winter of Lambert Mississippi. Married ??? in the late 1800's. Three children were born to the couple, male twins and another male that died at around five years old.
Lela M. (Gilespi) Winter may have been the child of a Scottsman and American Indian (Choctaw) woman. After the birth of their children,they moved to a reservation in Oklahoma. Please, any information will be greatly appreciated.

This may be way off, but a Susan was a slave of a Winter
family. She had 3 children in the 1850's by the son of the Winter family head. This son was a doctor and was known as Dr. Winter by the slave family. Dr.Winter had his three slave off-spring raised and educated with his white
offspring.
Susan right before the end of the Civil War was allowed to
get married,to a black man, and she raised all of her children togetherin 1870 in Canton, MS. Susan was born in Alabama, but her children were all born in MS..Hope this is familiar to whomever reads this. Thank you.

I have a lot of WINTER info. Been researching this family line of mine for over 30 years. I do have Jeva Winter in the line but very little info on him. I know several family members of this line are buried at our old cemetery "George Chapel Cemetery" here in Chickasaw County, Ms.

Will be glad to talk to you about this family line. You can contact me at::::::
