In Reply to: Thomas J. Gwinn and Ruth Bush Grayson co Tex by Roberta Hofmann of 829

Ok ..... so let's correspond about them. I'll say that I'm sure they're not related to my line of GWINN's.

1) I truly believe their last name was GWIN.

This family was not listed on the 1870 or 1880 Census because ... I believe they were living in Indian Territory, Oklahoma at that time.

1900 census Ruth (widowed) stated she had "four" children, "three" of which are living (all 3, listed with their mother Ruth).

The oldest son "Weaver W. GWIN" born about Feb 1868, in Texas. Weaver's death was 1 Jun 1926, Grayson Co., TX. I presumed he ever married, or had children...?? ( Do you think he's buried at the Bush Cemetery in Grayson Co., TX..?? ).

Next son was Joseph H. GWIN, born Nov 1871, Indian Territory Oklahoma. He was a "constable" for the county during 1920, and still single ( death - unknown, no other data ). I believe his death certificate, would be the key to finding information on "Thomas". Do you know where in Oklahoma, he was born...??? Do you know where, or when he died, or is buried..??

Youngest of the three sons, "Sal Ras", 1900 census states age 16, although it appears to me as if he was born Jul 1881, Texas.

The only clue as to which Thomas" your talking about, is "Tennessee" ... Without additional info, it could be any of 20 different Thomas GWIN, GWINN, GWYN, GWYNN, GUIN, GUINN, GUYN, GUYNN that your talking about.

Respectfully,
Michael A. Gwinn
