Surnames: WINSOR, Canfield
Can anyone tell me how Winsor Twp got its' name? Rumor has it that the twp was named after my Winsor ancestors - William and Marion (Canfield) Winsor.

I have a map of the township, but I have no idea as to where it is located within the county. Can anyone tell me where I can find a map of the county that includes the township boundaries?

Thanks,

Colleen Lill

Winsor Township is west of Bruce, SD. Part of Lake Oakwood is located in the North East corner. Kingsbury County is located on the western boundary of the township. I can not help with how Winsor township was named, but good luck on your search.

If you would go to www.sdgenweb.com and scoll down, on the right side is Maps and Gaezetteers, scoll down further and you will find a 1908 Map of South Dakota plus others. Winsor Twp is on the east side of US Hyw 14 north of Arlington and west of Bruce SD. I do have a plot map of Brookings Co I could send you if you like.

I grew up in Winsor Township, and will be going home for Thanksgiving. There's a group of retired farmers and other locals that meets at Kneip Implement every morning to discuss just such important questions. Unfortunately, their best source for local history (my father) died recently. I'll ask around and see if I can find anyone actually knows the origin of the township name.

Doug - I really appreciate your offer on this. When you are asking around, would you mind also asking if there are any families still living in the area with the surnames Getman or Winsor?

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.

My paternal Grandmother's John PIEHL owned land there [see BLM] and my Uncle Erwin DeVere BLOTE was born there. I recently found a great map for "Winsor Township - 1897 Brookings County South Dakota" at rootsweb posted by Lori Krie awa 1901 (sorry don't have link).

It contains Sch. No. 16; McCabe Sch. No. 17 near Lake Mitchell, and O'Connor Scho. No. 18, , Pleasant Valley Sch. No 19.

You may also find a good description available from the Census subscription>SD>Brookings>Winsor and checking district boundaries.

This website allows one to search by township, range and section. In order to pinpoint the farm exactly you would also have to know section number and the part of the section where the farm was located.
