Husband of Elizabeth Lockridge Graham Gwinn .

Siblings:
David Gwin


From The Gwinns of Round Bottom by Leona Gwinn Brown:

The dates on the tombstones in the old Gwinn cemetery at Green Sulphur Springs, and on John Gwinn's grave at Meadow Bridge, do not agree with some of the documented facts. The stone on Elizabeth's grave reads "who died January the 25th 1832 in the 73rd year of her age". This would make her only fifteen years of age in 1774 when she married Samuel Gwinn, and all records indicate that by that year she was a widow with three children. Beside the graves of Samuel and Elizabeth is a gravestone reading "Sacred to the memory of Moses Gwinn who died December 28, 1822 in the 62nd year of his age". In his will, Samuel Gwinn refers to Moses as his oldest son, but if he was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth he could not have been born earlier than 1774.

Thank you to Darrel Salisbury for the following inforamtion:
Elizabeth married Robert Graham, 24 Jun 1763, Augusta Co., VA. Robert's will, dated 19 Aug 1773, was proved 16 Mar 1774. Elizabeth was a widow on 30 Apr 1775, as indicated in an entry in Augusta Co. records related to Robert's estate. Another record entry on 20 Jun 1775, for Andrew Lockridge, says Elizabeth is "now" married to Samuel Guin.
