Rev. GEORGE WASHINGTON WINN born Williamson Co., Tenn., July 5, 1819; died near Nashville Tennessee, April 18, 1895:

REV. G. W. WlNN.

Rev. George Washington Winn was born July 5, 1819, in Triune, Williamson County, Tenn., and died near Nashville, Tenn., April 18, 1895. He was the son of Archelaus Winn, who came at an early day from Virginia. His mother was Susanna Bellaphant, of French descent, and a daughter of a Revolutionary soldier, who fought under La Fayette. His grandfather, James Winn, was from Wales, and was converted under Mr. Wesley’s preaching. His father was converted in his thirteenth year in the Old Dominion. He was baptized in infancy by Rev. Sterling Brown, a great light in his day; and when two years old his father removed to the neighborhood of Pleasant Grove, now Culleoka Tenn., where at Pleasant Grove Academy his education was obtained under the professorship of Mr. Wm. Kercheval. He was converted at Wilkes Camp ground, under the preaching of Rev. Thos. L. Douglas, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1833; was class leader several years, and was licensed to preach by a Quarterly Conference, Rev. F. E. Pitts, presiding elder, in 1840. October 14, the same year, he was admitted on trial into the Tennessee Conference at Murfreesboro, Tenn., from which time to his death he was a regular itinerant preacher fifty-four and a half years.

February 22, 1844, he married a widow with two children, originally Miss Alma Cargyle Stamper, adopting the children, and giving them his name. Subsequently were two children, Robert Soule Winn and Mrs. W. D. Shute, who survive. She preceded him to the beautiful land. Having lived together a half century he wrote: "No man ever had a truer and more consecrated wife."

Andrew Jackson made a great impression on Brother Winn when a boy. With other boys he was trying to get nearer Jackson in a crowd, and the men were pushing the boys back. Jackson reproved the men, and called the boys to him and shook hands and spoke kindly with each of them. It made him a Democrat on the spot, and a life-friend of "Old Hickory." This no doubt had to do with his Andrew Jackson type.

Rev. L. C. Bryan, only surviving member of Brother Winn’s Conference class of 1840, and intimate acquaintance through most of this time, says of him: "He seemed born with a martial spirit. His face was of the Andrew Jackson cast—features strong and firm. He had a fine physique, a clear, blue eye that never quailed and feared no man. He espoused the Confederate cause and made a brave soldier as a member of Gen. Morgan’s command, and preserved his Christian integrity through all the temptations of war. As a flower, slow in unfolding, he developed into a strong preacher. As a pastor he was faithful, trying to find every member."

AMANDA RAY BAIRD born December 2, 1830; died March 25, 1895; spent her entire life in Alexandria [state not given]; married J. M. Baird (died 1889), 1848; five children; joined the Methodist Church in 1851.
