Let me start by saying I have tried to get the Gwinn family history as accurate
as possible. I would like to thank Iola Gwinn, Opal "Gwinn" Morrison and Beckie Rawdon for the information they have provided
to help make this information available to you. I'm sorry if you find some errors in my dates and names. I did try to compare
all three of these lady's information against each other and go with the ones that compared the best. Also I have found
information in the Raleigh County Library, Summers County Library and the internet that I have compared to their information.
Most of the information I have listed here is directed towards the Gwinns that
settled here in Meadow Creeek. Please contact me with any information or questions.
