  • Note: John and his brother, William Overton Winston, arrived in DeKalb County, Alabama on 3 April 1838. In 1844 John Gaddis Winston was elected to the Alabama Legislature from DeKalb County. He resigned in 1845 as he was appointed by President James K. Polk to the office of Receiver of Public Money of the Land Office in Lebanon. He held this position for four years. At the beginning of the War Between the States he owned several hundred acres of land and 18 negroes. In 1863 he bought a farm in Marshall County for $11,000.00, a part was paid in negroes, some with Confederate Money, and a part in gold and silver. The farm was in the valley at the foot of Sand Mountain and the Martling Gap. He had a mill on the farm, another on Town Creek. After the death of his wife, Lucinda, he married a widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Burt. He sold the valley farm in 1884 and moved to Sand Mountain near Asbury and Harmony. Winston became postmaster of Jink Post Office where he lived at the time of his death. (Much of the above was written by his son, John Gaddis Winston III, in 1896 for Cora Winston Gilbreath, his sister. Willard Israel had a copy of that paper and used it on page 21 of his Killian family history, published in 1995.)
