Maybe by now, Sep 2010, you will have the answer you need for who Zadoc Winn's parents were, but if not, here is what was written in the local history. I have left off the title, etc for now, but can send it to you later. This came from my personal notes. My families locally that knew him was: Brock, Calvert, Crowe, Rutherford, Skelton, Curtis, Cate(s), misc.. Will share info on any of them, but also have lots of other county families' info. Write to me at:

Zadok Winn,farmer and stock raiser, of Washington County, Ark., was born in West Fork Township, of that county, February 28, 1836, and is a son of James and Nancy (Bloyd) Winn. The father was born in Bedford County, Tenn., May 10, 1810, and after reaching manhood located in Illinois; thence to Washington County. Ark., in 1832, locating on the farm now owned by his son, Zadok. He was married March 17, 1833, to Miss Bloyd, who was born in Kentucky, and became a resident of Washington County, Ark., in 1829, and to their union were born thirteen children, ten of whom grew to manhood and womanhood; Eli; Zadok; Matilda, wife of W. C. Graham; Marinda, wife of Z. C. Winn; Rachel W., wife of John Carris; John; Mary, wife of Samuel Hale; Ednonia, wife of H. Darin; Joel, and Margaret, wife of James Reed. The mother of these children died in the spring of 1862, and the father afterward married Eliza Hancock, who bore him four children: Martha W., wife of James Carris; Walker, George A., and James. The mother is now the wife of Daniel Carnes. Mr. Winn lived a prosperous and useful life until 1869, when he departed this life, deeply regretted by his relatives and friends. He had been a member of the Christian Church for thirty years, and in his political views was a strong Republican. The Winn family was first represented in America by three brothers who came from Ireland to North Carolina, a number of years prior to the Revolutionary War, and served the Colonists in their struggle for liberty. Zadok Winn. whose name heads this sketch, has resided in Washington County all his life, and in his boyhood days received such education as the schools afforded. September 4, 1853, he was united in the bonds of matrimony to Mary Caughman, who was born in Washington County, January 20, 1835, and is a daughter of Nathan and Matilda Caughman, who came to the county in 1829. She is the mother of ten children: Melvia, wife of John Hutchinson; Nancy, deceased; Matilda, wife of J. M. Bloyd; Lucinda. wife of J. W. Fitts; William; Hettie, wife of J. A. Oxendine; Nettie, Albert L., Almedia and John. Mrs. Winn is a member of the Christian Church, and Mr. Winn is a member of the following secret organizations: Lodge 336 of the A. F. & A. M., Lodge No. 90 of the I. O. O. F., Post No. 7 of the G. A. R., and the Masons. In September, 1863, he enlisted in Company D, First Arkansas Cavalry, and did honorable and active duty for the Union until he received his discharge, August 23, 1865. He is a very active member of the Republican party, serving as deputy marshal under Thomas Boles, and in all enterprises for the public weal he has aided materially with his influence and money. He is in good circumstances financially, and is the owner of a fine farm as the result of his own industry.
