My Great-Great-Grandfather was John W. Winn (1814-abt 1864)of Perry Township, Muskingum County, Ohio. His spouse was Harriet or Harriett Virden (or Virdin)-b.abt 1820. They married in abt. 1840 and had 6 or 8 children. Children incl. George A. Winn (b.abt.1841), Harvey W. Winn (b.abt.1849), Isaac P. Winn (b.abt.1843), Charles William Winn (1844-1926) and at least 2 daughters who died in infancy. Charles William Winn (my Great-Grandfather)eventually moved to Iowa and ran a shoe store in Newton. One of his 5 or 6 children was Harvey Wiley Winn (my Grandfather 1874-1960) who married Katheryn Vivian Burnett and lived in both Tarrant & Dallas Counties until his death. I have been to Perry Township, Muskingum County, Ohio in search of ancestral info. and hit a brick wall when trying to identify John W. Winn's parents. Will greatly appreciate any help.
