Here's the info. that I have on the Irwins (briefly):
Robert W. Irwin - b. about 1836 d. 3/17/1903
Wife Granny Irwin - No info. maybe named Mary
Edward - b.1848 (brother or son of Robert?)
James H. - b.1858 d.1858
Pearl - b.1868
Prudence Ellen Irwin Tyler (Aunt Kitty) - b.1875 d. 1961
Robert, James H. , Sarah (James'wife), and Aunt Kitty are buried in Oakwood Cemetary in Denison, Tx. My Grandfather wrote the following:
Robert - Believed to have been born in Illinois, not later than 1830, settled in Missouri - married there to Granny Irwin, first and maiden name, date and place of birth unknown. Robert served in the Confederate Army - Gen. Ben McCulloch, Missouri Brigade - Battle of Springfield - Battle of Pea Ridge where he was wounded in one knee. On July 4 1963 he was captured in the Fall of Vicksburg. Later, he and a friend from the Collinsville area of Texas escaped with the help of a log to swim the Mississippi. About 1890 Robert moved to his friends ranch near Collinsville - followed shortly by James H. and family. All moved to Denison around 1901 or 1902. Granny lived with James after Roberts death until the death of James' wife Sarah in 1912 - she then moved to the Texas coast near Freeport where Ed and Pearl had previously settled. I can recall no correspondence with the coastal Irwins. Aunt Kitty returned to Denison and soon entered a nursing home at Gunter, she died in 1961 and is buried in Oakwood.
