Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1851
Death: 1920

The Cromwell family originated in England. Gaston's Grandfather, Isaac Cromwell, emigrated to Virginia, where he became a wealthy and influential planter. He later moved to North Carolina.

Gaston's father, John Stewart Cromwell, who was born in Virginia, became a pioneer farmer and stockman of Lafayette County, Mississippi. He joined the Confederate Army and died during the Civil War near New Hope, Georgia. He was a Mississippi Sharpshooter. John is buried in a mass grave, therefore, there is no marker.

Gaston Winfield Cromwell was born in Lafayette County, Mississippi. He later moved to Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma Territory, and secured a farm of 120+ acres, 8 miles northeast of Wanette, Oklahoma. There he carried on diversified farming and stockraising, in both of which direction his industry and good management skills won him marked success. He was a deacon and member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Gaston married Martha Anna "Mattie" Ferrell and together they had 8 children, namely, Sheldon Winfield, Orrie Neva, Lillian Dell, Flavel Welford, Word, Julia Elizabeth, Mary Anna and John Lowery. Word Cromwell did not have a middle name. Source of name information: Gaston's grandson, James Gaston Cromwell (1920-2007)
