to Some Creek Families & Friends
JOHN WINSLETT and his wives (-?) MARTIN or (-?) GIBSON and HATTIE WARD
LifeNotes: He was listed as a debtor to his grandfather John Carson's
estate; John Carson died in 1790, but the estate was not administered
until 1802. John Winslett was
listed as a pole without property in Green Co., GA. 1797. However,
by 1799 he was deeded 187 acres on Town Creek of the Oconee River
by his grandfather's will, 1799.
Record of a John Winslett is found in the
1800 census of Pickens County, SC and that may have been this same
man since one of his known friends and associates had a history of returning
to SC for purposes of visiting friends and relatives or other reasons
which suited him. John Winslett sold land in Hancock Co., GA
in 1802, 1805 and 1810. He is also listed as "Captain" John
Winslett in Hancock Co., 1806. While in this county, he was
involved in two court cases in 1810.
Whether from the distasteful nature of the cases
or other reasons, John Winslett seems to have left the Hancock
Co., GA about this time. His friend and associate on numerous adventures
in GA, AL, AR, and other places was a man named Thomas
S. Woodward who later as an elderly man living in LA in 1859,
wrote his reminiscences which ultimately were published in Montgomery,
AL newspaper at that time. Woodward said that in 1814 he, John
Winslett and others (all with part Indian blood) joined in 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.
was a part of a sortie of the Georgia military augmented by numerous
friendly Indians in the Seminole country, 1818, in which a Mrs.
Stuart was rescued from the hostile indians. This is 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 GA, FL, AL,
TX, AR, LA and elsewhere. It must have been during
the period 1814 to 1817 or 1818 that John Winslett, Sr., having
lost a wife who died in Henry Co., AL, took up with and/or began
living among Indians along the Chattahoochee River. By 1826
or 27 he lived on the Uchee Creek in what is now Russell Co.,
AL with his new Indian family; this was reported by Green
Beauchamp in his early reminiscences of Barbour Co., AL. John's
new wife was Hattie Ward.
After the murder of Gen. William McIntosh
somewhere near the Chattahoochee by his own Indian people, many of
the Indians of that eastern part of Alabama elected to move
to Indian Territory. They arrived at Three Forks, OK in Feb.
1828, John Winslett and his Indian family among them. A son had been
born, then 2 daughters and another son. John Winslett seems to have
disappeared from Oklahoma about 1830. It was probably a case of him
leaving the family to return to AL and GA.
John Winslett was
again in Florida in 1830 where he was often used as Indian interpreter.
He also appeared in Washington, DC in 1832 in connection with Indian
Agency affairs. Still a later reference has been found of his asking
for the receiving pay for use of wagon in transporting Indians to Indian
Territory (AR) 1833 (paid 1834). He may have transferred his
home to Arkansas by this time, just as his old friend Thomas
Woodward had done.
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.
This is taken to mean he was living in either Arkansas, Oklahoma
or possibly Texas. No further record has been found of the man.
Born: 1775, near or in Wrightsvboro, McDuffie
Co., GA; Married: 1st-in GA, 2nd-in AL; Died:
Parents: Samuel Winslett and Mary Carson
1st- Wife: (-?) Martin? or Gibson?
Born, Married, Died,
Their children were:
- Samuel Winslett
- Gibson Martin Winslett, born 1792
(from 1850 census, VanZandt Co., GA although
that county was not organized until 1812, when it was partitioned from
Baldwin Co.). Migrated to Henry Co., AL. Thought to be the
Martin Wunslett to whom was granted a passport to the Creek Nation
from Warren Co., GA, in 1809. Married in Henry Co., AL to
Susannan Coleman (b. about 1795 in Henry Co., AL). They had
9 children, born from 1824-1840 in AL.
- John Carson Winslett.
Was in Richmond Co., GA in 1820 until 1823. Married 1st-Susan
Stewart (b. about 1820, Jasper Co., GA). Their child: John
Wesley Winslett (b. 1821, Jasper Co., GA; d. in Stevensville,
Ravalli, Montana). He moved to Henry Co., GA in 1823
where he bought 202 acres, Lot 130, for $500. Married in Quitman County,
GA 2nd-maybe Nancy West Nellums (b. about 1824 in Quitman
County, GA) by 1824, but Nancy may have been a 3rd-wife,
instaed and the name of the 2nd-wife, not known; a look at the dates of
the children's birth gives rise to the train of thought. Their child: Sarah
Ann Winslett (b. 1825 in Quitman County, GA; m. John Perkins
in 1855, Barbour Co., AL; d. 1906, Barbour Co., AL), Nancy
Jefferson Winslett (b. 1828 in Quitman County, GA; m. Andrew
Saunders in 1852, Barbour Co., AL), Minerva Winslett
(b. 1845 in AL), probably Thadeus C. Winslett (b. ca 1840;
killed 9/21/1863, at Chickamauga, Walker, GA, his mother
Nancy claiming his personal possessions 10/24/1863). When John
Carson Winslett left Henry Co.
is not known but is presumed to be somewhere around 1825 or 1826, for in
the latter year he is reported by some early chronicler of Barbour Co.,
AL, to have built the first house in Eufaula, AL. That fact
does not match too well the story told by John Wesley Winslett,
a son, who moved at an early age to the west, ending up as one of the founders
of Stevensville, Montana. The son, John Wesley stated to
friends out west that his father moved to Alabama with his family
in 1829. John died in 1848 in Barbour County, AL, at the
age of 49.
- Joel Winslett, born12/19/1802
