Back in 1960 I became interested in the ?Winans Genealogy?. I had been looking thru my deceased Father?s Family bible and discovered some papers in his handwriting. There were the names of his brothers and sisters and some of their families, and also, their dates of birth and marriages. I also discovered a letter from a Major Ira Winans asking my father for his family information. After some months I finally decided to find out who this Ira Winans was and how to get more data on my family. I wrote to the Rochester Public Library and the librarian sent me a letter telling me about the hundreds of Family Group Sheets that were in two big boxes up in the attic. After several letters passed between us the Librarian decided to let us look at the collection of letters that Ira Winans had worked on for some forty years. We then wrote back and told the Librarian that we would be there on a certain date and would she please have the material where we could look at it. We got there and the boxes were pilled up on two big tables so that there was enough room for us to work. We began copying the material by handwriting. After three days we had only 99 handwritten sheets. At that time, having not realized what a ?job? we had undertaken we had to leave and go back to California to our home.
Then in 1963 we bought a ?copy machine? and 4500 sheets of duplicating paper. After making arrangements with the same Librarian we arrived at Rochester, NY and rented a Motel room just across the street and then we would take enough sheets to last several hours of duplicating, as the Librarian thought it best for us not to take too many at the same time. We worked about 18 to 20 hours a day from Monday morning until Friday evening. Then with all of this material we got back to the Airport just in time to catch our plane back home.
It took ten years of typing (after working 8 hours a day at a job) to assemble the families and separate the different lines of descendants for the sons of the first known ?John Winans in America?. Then after several moves to warmer climates so that my sick husband, Paul Burdette Egy, would feel better, he passed away in 1982. Now I am married to Allan C. Woolley and we live in Sacramento, CA.
So that it will be easier to understand some of the abbreviations that I have used I will explain them. B-born, d-died, ca-about, Presby-Presbyterian, all of the States are abbreviated. When you see an ?*? in the front of the numbers that means that, that man has a Family Group sheet telling about his family. When you look at the numbers fir the generations, example 1-7-6-8. That means that ?1? is John, that ?7? is the second generation and the 7th child, ?6? means the 3rd generation and the 6th child, ?8? means the 4th generation and the 8th child in the family, and so forth.
*I want to dedicate this ?Winans Genealogy? to the memory of Major Ira Winans and also to the many, many people that have helped me gather all of this material. I have received hundreds of letters thru the past 25 years and have also written hundreds of letters. I have been able to meet many of these people and have visited in their homes. I talked to Major Ira Winans grandson and got his permission to assemble all of the Major?s work.
