Please send an Email message to Randall Scott Erwin

Erwin The parents of Wiley Erwin remain elusive and just outside the radarscope. The first record of Wiley is that he was born in the year 1814 in the state of Tennssee and that is the only lead we have thus far. If a location were pinpointed more accurately (in Tennessee) it is probable that his parents could be located. Contact us if you learn of Wiley Erwin's parents.

(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.

WILSON, WHITING 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 Church.

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.

Patricia Ruth Erwin 30425-12th Ave. SW Federal Way,, WA 98023-3424 253-839-0931 PRERWIN@aol.com 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

John M. Froman

We know John Froman was a resident of Weatherford, Texas by proof of the Tax Roles in 1857. However, he is not listed in the 1860 censes and most assuredly he was deceased before 1860. We know this from a land probate document showing his Son, A.S. Froman in possession of the inherited land. The questions arise; What was the cause of John Froman's death? Where is he buried? Who were his parents? These questions could be in the records of most anyone in Weatherford, Texas - yet we have been unable to locate them.

The information below, are notes of my searches for John Forman, yet it is contradictory and unverified. I supply these notes only as a refernce to those looking in the same places, and with it's content, may cause an additional search to be more fruitfull. Randall Scott Erwin

Received this Email on 31December2001 Years of researching Parker County pioneers has caused me to believe that John M. Froman was the father of A.S. Bid Froman. J. M. Froman signed the petition to create Parker County in 1855, was on the 1856 Tax Roll, a deed dated 17 May 1858 (refiled 13 Feb. 1882) has the following, "11 Day Dec. 1857 James Tinsley, Administrator of Estate of J. M. Froman, deceased, recovered a judgement......" From "Parker County Land Abstracts" Pre-emption records A, C, D, Denton Land District. John M. Froman had 320 acres survey according to the Index, Book A. p.79, page 79 has not survived. When courthouse burned in 1874, a man sleepling there jumped out the window with the survey books, all that was saved. By the way, it is Mahala Kiser Yeary. Let me know where you get that Bid's father was Tom. Evlyn Broumley, over 30 years researching.
