Descendants of the McNairy County Erwins and their extended families are invited to join us in a gathering at the Stantonville Civic Center on Saturday, September 30, 2000.
We will gather as early as 10 am and have a potluck lunch.
You can stay as long as you would like and share stories to the group.
Send your family group sheet to me and I will have it included into the overall tree that will be posted on the wall. If you don't have a group sheet, start working on them now and bring them with you. We will include it. We will print a participant sheet and their Erwin connection, and address for everyone.
Genealogist and family researchers are invited to help answer those mysterious questions we all are asking. We will have tables set up to help each other with holes in our family trees. Bring your books and worksheets to share.
Maps will be available showing the cemeteries you can visit. There will be large copies of photographs, land grants, other documents - even a Civil War diary written by Narcissa L. Erwin Black about the Erwin relatives in that area.
Some of the family names include McCann, Carman, Perkins, McKennzie, Kerr, Veale, Holeman, Hurst, Cathey, Brandon, Alexander, Darnell, Cahill and on and on. If you are not sure you are related, come to the reunion or respond and a group of us will check if you relate to the McNairy County Erwins.

ERWIN, WOODS, WOOD
Hon. W. W. ERWIN, farmer, and a native of Tennessee, was born April 26,
1846. His parents, Robert and Jane E. (WOODS) ERWIN, were natives of
Tennessee. The father was born in 1810, and the mother about the same
year. She died September, 1885. The father is still living and is a
saddler by trade. Our subject received his education at Moorsville
Academy. December 23, 1869, he married Addie, daughter of Dr. John and
Josephine WOOD, and a native of Lincoln County, born March 30, 1853. By
this union they became the parents of five children: Robert, Willie B.,
Edwin S., Ross and Leroy W. Mr. ERWIN remained with his parents for some
time, and received a good education in the schools of the county. He then
engaged in teaching, and has followed this occupation for ten years. He
has taught in Marshall, Giles and Lincoln Counties, and was principal of
the Boonshill Academy for some time. In 1871 he moved on his present farm
which consists of 150 acres of productive land. In 1884 he was elected to
represent the people of Lincoln and Moore Counties in the Legislature of
the State. Mr. Erwin is a Democrat, and he and wife are members of the
Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
Hon. W. W. WILSON is the son of William and Susan WILSON, natives of
Kentucky and North Carolina, respectively. The father was born in
February, 1799 and came to Lincoln County with his parents when but six
years of age. He followed agricultural pursuits as a livelihood, and was
quite successful at this. He died in March, 1856. The mother was born in
1797, and departed this life in 1845. Our subject was born in Lincoln
County, April 28, 1827, and received his education in the school near his
country home, and at Viny Grove, under
Prof. Erwin. In 1848 he married
Miss A. WHITING, a daughter of Robert and Mrs. WHITING. She was born in
Robertson County in 1829. Mr. WILSON began teaching, and has followed that
occupation for about ten years. In 1851 he bought ten acres of land in the
Thirteenth District, where he located, and has since lived. He now owns
250 acres in a very desirable place, and is doing a good business. About
1858 he was elected magistrate, and again in 1864. He has held the office
considerable of the time since, up to 1880, when he refused to accept the
position any longer. In 1872 he was chosen by the people to represent them
in the State Legislature. He is a man well known throughout the county,
and his being elected to offices of trust at different times shows that the
public appreciates his services. He is a Democrat, and a member of the
Masonic fraternity. Mrs. WILSON is a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian

The American Civil War became a life changing event in the
history of a nation and its people.
Today, those interested in Confederate history can read
eloquent diaries and accounts left by Southern women. Below is
a select list of the most informative and famous of these
documents. I have also included a guide to books on the War
itself for those interested in gaining a greater understanding
of this pivotal era in the history of the United States.

I am interested in any information regarding three brothers or cousins that left Virginia and settled in Indiana prior to 1848. There names were Thomas Erwin, William Erwin, and Robert Wiley Erwin. Do you know where they lived in Virginia and if and when their parents came from Ireland/Scotland?
WHITECOTTON--Help! I just got back from the local LDS library where I came across a book about Jackson Co. Ala.
In this book, it mentions my ancestor, PETE WHITECOTTON, who married EMMA ERWIN, daughter
of WILEY ERWIN (she was a child from his first marriage). It goes on to say that WILEY ERWIN later married again to
EMMA WHITECOTTON, sister to PETE WHITECOTTON. This would make Pete's step-mother-in-law, his sister. My
problem is that in all of the census info and family info that I have accumulate on the parents of PETE WHITECOTTON, I
have never ran across mention of a sister named EMMA. I do have that Pete's wife was named EMILY, and we know for
a fact that he died young, so I guess it is possible that WILEY married PETE'S widow. This family was rather infamous in
Jackson Co. and there is quite a bit of info on them available. Anyone who could shed some light on this mystery would
have my undying gratitude.. For more information, contact Karla Lang at Kaylee38@yahoo.com
