Frederick Augustus Redwine
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 28, 1767
North Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 26, 1859
Russell County
Virginia, USA

Son of Johann Michael Rheitwile/Redwine & Christina Seyler of Germany. Michael died in NC.

He & his son Joshua died on the same day? Born in Roane Co., NC which became divided into several counties in Tennessee.

Died on the Redwine Plantation in Russell Co., VA.

Married abt. 1785 in NC folk lore said to be to the unnamed daughter of an indian chief.

Note: I believe the town of Elk Garden is on the former Redwine Plantation. There is no official 'Elk Garden Cemetery'. The graves were probably on some country private land somewhere around Elk Garden.


The family originally came from Freckenfeld GR to Philadelphia Co., Philadelphia PA and was named R(h)eutweil/R(h)iedweil.

Frederick Augustus Redwine (1767-1859) moved from Rowan/Montgomery Co., NC, where he was counted in the 1790 and 1800 census in Salisbury District.

In 1805 the family was in Sequatchie (across the river from the northern part of Sand Mountain), where Frederick was the third settler to penetrate the cornbrakes of that fertile valley. It is believed that his wife was from that region; she is the only American Indian in the family before 1800 and has been claimed to be Tihanama.

Moved to Lexington, KY, area around 1814, when he and his family (including son Wiley and wife) were apparently counted in the census (also in 1820).

The Russell Co., Va. tax list has a Frederick A. Redwine in 1810. (Frederick Jr.?)

Their issue:

1. Joshua Michael Redwine
2. Frederick Augustus Redwine, Jr.
3. Rev. William Wiley Redwine
