Winfield came to Kansas with his parents in 1877 when he was 15. He tended the family farm in Clearwater, and married Ada Watkins in 1891. In 1893, he and Ada made "the run" into the Cherokee strip of Oklahoma, claiming 160 acres of farmland. They returned to Kansas, however, in 1899.
Winfield and Ada had one son, who had one daughter, who was without issue. Thus, this family line has died out.
