Married Nancy Wilson, abt 1821

Children - Thomas Green Winn, John Winn, Elias Stillwell Winn, Alma Winn, James Winn, Mary Winn, Dennis Wilson Winn, Jane Winn, Andrew Tilton Winn

Obituary - At Richfield, Sevier County, February 1877, of Lung complaint, MINER WINN, in the 79th year of his age.

Deceased was born in the town of Pendleton in Pendleton District, South Carolina, in 1798; was baptized in June, 1935, by Elder George P. Dykes, and joined the Village Creek Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in Edwards County, Illinois.

In 1837 he went with Brother Andrew Hamilton to Adams County and there remained till he gathered with the Saints to Nauvoo and continued working on the Temple and helping to guard the Prophet Joseph, when exposed to mob violence, until driven away at the general expulsion of the Saints from their homes.

He crossed the Plains in 1852; was ordained a High Priest in Cache Valley. In 1853 he moved to Parowan; subsequently to Beaver County. In the fall of 1876 he came to Richfield, purposely to become identified with the United Order, in which he was a firm believer to his last breath.

He leaves five living children, 67 grandchildren and 34 great grandchildren to mourn his loss. He died in full faith of a glorious resurrection

Millennial Star.
