William Winton left Cumberland County, Pa., in March 1780 and migrated south to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where he was lliving on the border of Shenandoah and Rockingham counties by 1784. His oldest son John married into an established family named Cunningham that year. William moved further south about 1785 to the North Carolina Territory, which later became Jefferson County, Tennessee. John and his wife Arabella also settled on the south bank of the French Broad River near Dandridge.

John resettled southwest of Knoxville in Roane County where he became a large farmer and slave owner. The Father of American Methodism Francis Asbury "rode two days and nights in the pouring rain" to ordain John as a Methodist deacon on Oct. 31, 1800. Deacons served as local pastors between visits from circuit riding ministers.

Meanwhile, John's brother McClellan married Sally West and migrated with her family to south-central Kentucky along the Cumberland River. Their younger brothers James, Robert, and Stephen later served in the War of 1812.

By the end of the War of 1812, all seven of William's sons were strung across the Tennessee and Kentucky frontiers. John comissioned his nephew John Cunningham Turnley, an army munitions wagoneer, to design and build what became one of the first antebellum mansions in East Tennessee. Meanwhile. McClellan migrated to the newly established Alabama Territory and settled in Cotaco County by 1818.
