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.
