William Milton Winslett1,2,3,4

M, ID# 3633, (1812 - May 1880)
Father:Samuel Winslett II (1787 - b 1850)
Mother:Disa 'Dicey' 'Dicy' McMichael (24 Feb 1786 - 1876)
     William Milton Winslett was born in 1812 at Georgia. He was the son of Samuel Winslett II and Disa 'Dicey' 'Dicy' McMichael. William Milton Winslett married (1st wife of Wm M. Winslett) (Unknown) a 1831. William Milton Winslett married Elizabeth F. Royal, daughter of William Royal and Elizabeth Tucker, on 3 Jan 1842 at Chambers Co, Alabama. William Milton Winslett died in May 1880 at Lee Co, Alabama.
      William Milton Winslett was frequently noted in official records as Milton and sometimes Melton. He married in Chambers Co, AL on the Georgia border in 1842.

By 1850 he was age 38, living in his mother's home, with a very large household of interrelated family members in Russell Co, AL on the Georgia border. Many researchers have confused Milton with his brother John because men both had wives named Elizabeth, and frankly his brother John is harder to track in official records. Milton's mother and two sisters were residing with Milton in 1850.

In addition to Milton's four young children by his wife Elizabeth, there were four older children living in the household in 1850: James, Samuel, William and David Winslett born between 1832 and 1842. These four children could not have been his mother Disa's children because she was past childbearing age when they were born. They were not the sons of his sisters Harriet or Sarah who were living in the household in 1850 but were not old enough to be the mother(s). The four children were unlikely the those of Milton's oldest uncles who were still alive and living with their families in 1850; they could be the sons of Milton's youngest uncle, Jonathan Winslett born in 1793, who had children with the same exact names but none of the ages match the reported ages for Jonathan's children and in 1860 Jonathan was enumerated with his own two youngest children.

The four children living in Milton's household in 1850 are most likely Milton's by a first unknown marriage because Milton was old enough to have had a first marriage; this presents a potential math problem with two children of the same age in his family in 1850, but it would have been possible to have two children by two wives within 12 months, and this census taker made a number of significant errors on ages and names for the several interrelated neighboring families on this census. Potentially the four are unknown children of his brother John who was likely deceased by 1850, but the oldest child James was born about 1832 and Milton's brother John had a son Jonathan proven born in 1832.

Milton was listed on the 1850 Russell Co, AL slave schedule with a female slave age 27 and five slave children age 2 to 9.

By 1860 Milton was enumerated as Mellin Winslette, a farmer age 49, on the Russell Co, AL census and the older four children, even though one would have only been age 18, are gone from the household. Strangely his 10 year old daughter is noted as "no name" on the census, perhaps because the census taker could not read his notes because no special condition is noted for the child.

In 1866 Milton Winsles [sic] age 50-60 was still residing in Russell Co, AL with 1 female under age 10 [E. or S.]; 2 males and 1 female age 10-20 [Amos, John, and Martha]; 1 male age 20-30 [Samuel]; and his wife Elizabeth age 40-50. By the time of the second 1866 enumeration there is a William Winslett with a female both age over 30 living six doors away who is likely William Milton's son.

By 1870 Milton was listed as M. Winslett age 58 living in Auburn, Lee Co, AL, which was adjacent to Russell Co on the Georgia border. William was living with his wife and two youngest children: A. age 16 -- a son who is farming and a daughter age 14 listed as E. on this census and S. on the previous census.

Melton Winslett age 75 estimated born about 1805 in Georgia, drowned in Lee Co, AL in May 1880 and is presumed, despite the age difference with his reported birth date, to be William Milton because he is living in the same county and is of the approximate correct age. The man was working as a wagoner and was noted as a 13-year resident of the county; of note, no one on the list was noted as having lived there longer than 13 years.

CPT John Carson Winslett I1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

M, ID# 3651, (1775 - a 1833)
Father:1st Lt. Samuel Winslett I (c Dec 1744 - 1829)
Mother:Mary Carson (1754 - 1829)
     CPT John Carson Winslett I was born in 1775 at Wrightsboro, Greene Co, Georgia. He was the son of 1st Lt. Samuel Winslett I and Mary Carson. CPT John Carson Winslett I married Unknown Martin ? a 1794 at Georgia. CPT John Carson Winslett I married Unknown Gibson ? a 1820. CPT John Carson Winslett I married Hattie Ward, daughter of John Ward I and Keziah Kennard, c 1825 at Alabama. CPT John Carson Winslett I died a 1833 at Clayton, Barbour Co, Alabama.
      John Carson Winslett I had, in addition to his known sons, two daughters by his first wife. John continually had intrastate and interstate moves. In 1797 and 1798 John was living in Greene Co, GA where he was noted as a pole without property. In 1799 he was deeded 287 acres on Town Creek off the Oconee River under his grandfather John Carson's will.

A John Winslett was living in Pickens Co, SC in 1800, and this may have been our John as one of his close associates frequently visited South Carolina.

John sold land in Hancock Co, GA in 1802, 1805 and 1810. He was listed as Captain John Winslett in Hancock Co in 1806. While in this county, he was involved in two court cases in 1810. He served for Georgia in the War of 1812.

John's friend and associate on numerous adventures in Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas and other places was Thomas S. Woodward who, as an elderly man living in Louisiana in 1859, wrote his reminiscences which were published in an Montgomery, AL newspaper at that time. Woodward said that in 1814 he, John Winslett and others "all with part Indian blood" joined together travelling about and "went where it pleased them." Some of John Winslett's family were likely already in Alabama by this time or at least near the Chattahoochee River.

John was a part of a sortie in 1818 of the Georgia military augmented by numerous friendly Seminole Indians in which a Mrs. Stuart was rescued from hostile indians. This was reported in Woodward's account of the affair. From this account and others mentioned throughout Woodward's reports, it seems both men were friendly with many different indians and possibly different tribes in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Lousiana and elsewhere.

During the period 1814 to 1818 John reportedly began living with Indians along the Chattahoochee River. John's wife died in 1824. By 1826 or 1827 John lived on the Uchee Creek in what is now Russell Co, AL with his new wife Hattie Ward, said to be Indian; this was reported by Green Beauchamp in his early reminiscences of Barbour Co, AL. About 1828 John was living in Barbour Co, AL down the Chattahoochee River from Ft. Mitchell with his family.

After the murder of Indian leader Gen. William McIntosh somewhere near the Chattahoochee by his own Indian people, many of the Indians in eastern Alabama elected to move to Indian Territory. The Indians arrived at Three Forks, OK in Feb 1828 with John Winslett and his Indian family among them. A son was born, then two daughters and another son. John disappeared from Oklahoma about 1830, probably to return to Alabama and Georgia.

John was again in Florida in 1830 where he was often used as an Indian interpreter. He also appeared in Washington, DC in 1832 in connection with Indian Agency affairs. John was noted back in Alabama in 1833. Still a later reference has been found of his asking in 1833 for and receiving in 1834 pay for use of a wagon in transporting Indians to Indian Territory.

In Dec 1833 John Winslett, self styled "citizen of the Creek Nation west of the Mississippi" presented a demand for return of some negroes held by the Seminoles. The Indians kept black slaves, so it may be that slaves belonging to John had been taken. The demand was interpreted to mean he was living in Arkansas, Oklahoma or possibly Texas. He may have transferred his home to Arkansas by 1834, just as his old friend Thomas Woodward had done.

Two J. C. Winsletts served in the Creek War in 1836 in Alabama and he may have been one.

Thus, as researcher Joan Case concluded, John had a history in Richmond, Hancock, Jasper, Greene, Jones, Liberty, Carroll counties in Georgia; Pike, Russell and Henry Counties in Alabama; much travel into the Seminole Indian area of Florida; possible ventures into South Carolina; at least one trip to Washington, DC; a sojourn in Oklahoma and possibly passing his last years in Arkansas. She also believed John may have ventured into Texas on an escapade or two with his old friend Gen. Thomas S. Woodward.

      Hattie Ward was born at the end of the great era of the Creek, survived the Creek War, and endured the Removal, ending her days in Indian Territory. Hattie's birth place is noted as Hitichee, GA but research shows Hitichee refers to a cluster of villages called Hitichee Towns which clustered around the confluence of Walnut Creet and the Ocmulgee River near present-day Macon, GA.

Hattie was Creek of the Wind Clan, and as the culture practiced polygamy, her second husband married two of her daughters.

      Lewis Perryman was a Creek Indian. As a Creek, Lewis practiced polygamy. Plural marriages were prohibited in 1891, but prior marriages of such character were acknowledged as legal.

Lewis came to Indian Territory in 1828 with his first family and established himself on land near the falls of the Verdigris River. After he married Hattie Ward, they moved to Big Springtown on Adams Creek seven or eight miles northeast of Broken Arrow. Because of a cholera epidemic at Big Springtown, after 1848 he moved to the Tulsa area where he ran a trading store. He later took two of Hattie's daughters by her prior marriage to John Carson Winslett as his wive. From his four wives he had ninteen known children, all but one of whom lived a long life.

During the Civil War, Lewis engaged extensively in the cattle business along the Arkansas River valley below Tulsa. Lewis saw no military service, but his sons entered the Confederate service by enlistment in Aug 1861. The brief occupancy of Tahlequah by Union forces in Jul 1862 influenced his sons to abdicate their enlistment and abandon the Confederate service. When the Confederate forces reoccupied Tahlequah in Oct 1962, Lewis taking his wives Hattie and Befeeny and their children abandoned his accumulations in the Territory and joined the Creek refugees near Burlington, Coffee Co, KS. His sons enlisted with the Union forces in Dec 1862 and served until the end of the war. His wives returned to the Territory.

John Carson Winslett II1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

M, ID# 3659, (4 Nov 1799 - 25 Nov 1848)
Father:CPT John Carson Winslett I (1775 - a 1833)
Mother:Unknown Martin ? (a 1774 - 1824)
     John Carson Winslett II was born on 4 Nov 1799 at Jasper Co, Georgia. He was the son of CPT John Carson Winslett I and Unknown Martin ? John Carson Winslett II married Susan Stewart c 1820. John Carson Winslett II married Nancy Jefferson West Nelloms / Nelms c 1824 at Quitman Co, Georgia. John Carson Winslett II died on 25 Nov 1848 at Barbour Co, Alabama, at age 49.
      John Carson Winslett II was apparently listed as John H. Winslett in Richmond Co, GA in 1820 until 1823. He moved to Henry Co, GA in 1823 where he bought 202 acres, lot 130, for $500.

John was the first white man to settle at what is now Eufaula, Barbour Co, AL. In 1826 he was reported by an early chronicler of Barbour Co, AL to have built the first house in Eufaula, AL; however, John's son John Wesley Winslett reported his father moved to Alabama in 1829. John's log house was gone in the 1990s, and the site is unknown although he lived near the Uchee Creek.

In 1830 a John C. Winslett, transcribed as John C. Wineby, age 30-39, was living in Pike Co, AL, located adjacent to Barbour Co, with his wife age 20-29 and a son age 5-9 [John], 2 daughters less than age 5 [Nancy and Sarah], and an unknown female age 10-15.

John served six months during 1837 in the Alabama Mounted Volunteer Militia under Colonel Corning against the Creek Indians and was honorably discharged. For his Florida War service, in 1856 a Land Warrant No. 5197, patent 7779 in Barbour Co, AL was issued to Nancy Winslett, widow of John C. Winslett, deceased.

During the Indian uprisings of 1836-1837 the Winslett family took refuge at a small Eufala, AL fort; they knew to run for the fort when the cows started raising their heads to sniff the air and acting nervous. The Winslett family home, livestock and crops were destroyed during Indian raids. John submitted a claim for his property destroyed that totaled about $450 and included all his possessions--his house, 5 acres of corn, 50 pounds of tobacco, 13 cattle, tools, kitchen implements, shotgun, spinning wheel, loom, bed, sideboard, chest, table and 7 chairs.

John was riding on the Flournoy Plantation (Wales Place) with Josiah Flournoy when the two men rode close to the bluff of the Chattahoochee River to get a better look at Georgia troops scouting for Indians on the other side of the river and were mistaken for Indians. John was shot in the neck where the ball lodged. Falling from his horse, he remounted with aid from his companion and rode to Irwinton where a dentist named Cleveland removed the bullet.

John may have been born in March instead of November. His marriage to Nancy Jefferson as his second wife appears certain given their namesake daughter. However because when his son Thadeus died and his mother Nancy claimed his effects after his death, John could have had a third wife named Nancy given the twelve-year childbirth gap before Thadeus was born.
