This Benjamin Winans is my link to the original Winans (Winants/Wijnants), John/Jan who was born in the Netherlands in 1640. Benjamin's father was Isaac (born 1756 NJ; died 1812 Harrison Co., VA; married 1785 NJ to Ruth Ayers/Ayres - 1st wife). Benjamin was born 25 Jul 1800 Harrison Co., VA; died 24 May 1860 Barbour Co., VA; buried at Mt. Hebron Cemetery, Barbour Co., VA; married 14 Sep 1824 Lewis Co., VA to Catharine Simons. I found 8 children. Benjamin is found in the 1850 Barbour Co., VA U.S. Census. His will is dated 12 May 1860 in Barbour Co., VA listing Catharine as his wife. Benjamin's & Catharine's son John is my direct ancestor.
