The Lower Winfield Line
This page is part of Irene Gladys Whiteman's web-site.
It contains the tree of the Lower Winfield family (from
a brother of Rene's mother's mother), a branch of the
6. Nathan John
b. 4 Apr
1859, Spondon (Jun qtr 1859, Shardlow - 7b, 369)
Labourer, with his parents in the 1861 and 1881 Censuses, but not 1871
at 12 (Census was 2 April)
My mother, Rene (his great-niece, b.1926) thought he moved to Maine USA,
and had 2 children.
[That implied that family contact was sustained at least for the first
decade or two.]
Nathan's great-grandson (2.3.3 Frank, below) found this page and contacted
me in November 2016.
This page now reflects the limited information we had from my mother, a
lot from Anne Kratzmann's research, plus a lot more from Frank and
Bill (2.1 below).
m. 23 Jun 1885 (aged 26) – possibly without the enthusiasm of his
m. Elizabeth Pountney
She was b. 13 Dec 1857 (so 27 when married)
Possibly she was a ward, not a child of her family, and possibly Nathan's
family didn't approved of this.
Later in 1885, they migrated later to Ansonia, Connecticut
Elizabeth d. 23 Sep 1924 (aged 66), in Ansonia, Connecticut
Nathan d. 4 Apr 1937 (his 77th birthday)
- Arthur Winfield (?late 1880s-?)
d. in infancy
- William Bromley Winfield (1893->1955) – Hannah
Russell's 1st cousin
b. 10 Jan 1893
"Bill joined the Connecticut National Guard cavalry in 1915.
He was sent to the Mexican border to chase banditos in 1916, and in
1917 was called up for the First World War. His unit
was converted to a machinegun battalion and he fought in the 2nd Battle
of the Marne. He survived some unpleasant fighting at Chateau Thierry,
and was told by British he
met over there, that he had the face of a Derbyshire man".
The family has this photo of him,
and the obverse,
with "Hannah Winfield
Russell [his aunt, Nathaniel's youngest sister], although it is possible
it might be Emma Winfield [his maiden aunt, Nathan's immediately
younger sister]. I believe it was taken in August of 1918,
that being the only time he would have had the opportunity for extended
leave. The 2nd Marne had just wrapped up and he was sent to the officer's
school at Langres at the beginning of September. If the photo had been
taken anytime later, he would have been wearing a lieutenant's uniform".
m. Marion Tryon Leete on 21/22 Oct 1921, in Enfield Conn.
Marion was b. 15 Apr 1896
They eventually settled in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

The starting-point for this page came from Roger's notes from his conversations
with his mother Rene, and a number of birth, marriage and death certificates
that I acquired in the 1990s. Further detail was provided in 2006,
by my cousin on the Russell side, Anne Kratzmann in Kingaroy Qld (who is an
absolute whizz at genealogy). Then along came 2.3.3.
Frank Hartman, who provided much more information about the family in 2016.
