Since it was built in 1892-93, it speaks well for the handiwork of those who built it. John Walden Winslow came to Boise in 1907 with my mother’s family and is buried in Morris Hill Cemetery in Boise Idaho.”

Sarah Winslow, wife of John Walden Winslow. “my great grandmother, Sarah, lived on the same little farm at Winslow, PA until she died at the age of seventy from typhoid fever, complicated by pneumonia.

Five years later, 1907, John Walden Winslow went with his daughter, Anna, and son-in-law, Ashbel Tucker, from Pennsylvania to Boise, and then he passed away three years later in 1910.

“Augustus G. Winslow Honored on 86th Anniversary of Birth”

“The celebration last Saturday of the eighty-sixth birthday anniversary of Augustus Gaskill Winslow, of Gaskill township, at his home at Winslow Station, brought together thirty or forty relatives and a few old friends, who enjoyed an afternoon of communion and feasting. Few men of his age are so well preserved and so clear in mind as is Mr. WINSLOW, whose life goes back to the days of Daniel Webster and Henry Clay, and who served time in the Union army during the Civil War.

“The Winslows came to this part of the country from the state of Maine about 1815, the head of the family being CARPENTER WINSLOW, who brought several of his nine sons with him. They settled near where the celebration of last week was held and two or three farms there are held by descendants of the original stock. The Winslow family, which traces its descent from the Wyncelowes of London and Oxford city in the early 1500s, came to the country on the Mayflower, in the person of Edward Winslow, afterwards governor of Plymouth Colony. His younger brother, KENELM WINSLOW, came in 1628, and from him sprang the large connection in New England and over the country generally.

“Through Kenelm Winslow, Job, James, another James, Carpenter and Joseph Wood Winslow came Augustus Winslow, the seventh generation from Kenelm, and the eighth, ninth, tenth and later generations quite numerous hereabout[s]. Mrs. Minerva Bowers and Mrs. Mary E. Winslow [Long], two sisters of Mr. Winslow, are still living and in good health.” 18 Jan 1927

From Pa biographies: Winslow, Hon. Reuben C. 

The history of the Winslow family dates back to the pilgrim settlers of Plymouth, Mass. The founder of the family, Kenelm Winslow, son of Edward Winslow, of Droitwich, England, was born at that place on the 29th of April, 1599. He was the younger brother of Governor Winslow, and arrived at Plymouth in the Mayflower in 1629- this was the Mayflower’s second voyage. He settled at Marshfield, Mass., but subsequently removed to Salem, where he died on the 13th of September, 1672, aged seventy-three years. Some of his descendants still reside upon the property which he purchased from the Indians April 2, 1659.

Carpenter Winslow was his great, and was born at Pittston, Mass., March 20, 1766. His father, James Winslow, was a millwright, and he very early became familiar with the use of mechanical implements, and was afterwards engaged in ship-building having a ship yard at Wiscasset, Me., for several years. He married Elizabeth Colburn in 1787, and was the father of nine sons, four of whom became noted seamen.

In the year of 1818 this branch of the Winslow family came to Jefferson county, and Carpenter Winslow settled on what is now the old homestead, in Gaskill township. The county was then a dense wilderness, and like all new settlers they had to undergo untold privations; but they found themselves in a healthy climate, and where the soil, though hard to “clear,” was productive, so that they were soon able to raise grain and feed in abundance, while the surrounding forests and streams afforded them game and fish. One of their difficulties was having to carry their grain twenty or more miles along bridle- paths through the forest to mill.

In a few months the family of Dr. John W. Jenks came into the neighborhood, and with some others settled in what is now Punxsutawney, and the Bowers family located near the Winslows. These were followed by other settlers, and they soon found themselves in the midst of a good neighborhood, which is today one of the best farming sections of the county.

Carpenter Winslow died in November, 1827, his wife surviving him about eighteen years. Both are buried in the cemetery near Punxsutawney. Only two of his sons, James and Joseph W., father of R. C. Winslow, still survive. The rest have all passed away, leaving however, a large posterity, who are among the most prominent and best citizens of Jefferson and Elk counties. Joseph W. Winslow the youngest son of Carpenter Winslow, was born at Wiscasset, Me., December 10, 1804, and in 1832 married Christena Long, youngest daughter of Joseph Long, of Punxsutawney. Their family consisted of eleven children, four sons and seven daughters, who were all born at the old homestead, and who all survive, except a son and daughter who died in infancy. Mr. Winslow has resided on his farm for almost seventy years, and is now one of the patriarchs of the county. Two of his sons, Augustus G. and Joseph Clark Winslow, reside with their venerable parent at the homestead.

Reuben C. Winslow, the eldest son, was born November 9, 1833, and worked on the farm at home, getting his schooling in the winter until he was in his twenty-second year. He read law with Phineas W. Jenks, Esq., of Punxsutawney, and was admitted to practice at the February term, 1858, and entered into partnership with his preceptor, the firm of Jenks & Winslow continuing until May, 1880, when it was dissolved, and the same month Mr. Winslow entered into partnership with John E. Calderwood, the firm of Winslow & Calderwood still continuing.

Mr. Winslow was married to Miss Martha Drum, youngest daughter of the late John Drum, Esq., of Punxsutawney, June 24, 1858. The result of this union was two sons, John Carlton, born June 13, 1859, and Willie W., born May 7, 1862. The eldest son, Carlton, died November 11, 1881.

Mr. Winslow is a Republican in politics, and was elected to the State Senate in 1874. He still resides in Punxsutawney, where his home is one of the most beautiful in that thriving town.

In September 1864 at 31 years he purchased the ground along then Torrence Street for his new residence for $2500 a sizable sum for the time. this tract consisted of 12 acres which already adjoined land already owned by R C Winslow and stretched north to the Armory grounds and west toward what is now Mitchell Street.

The Jefferson County Recorders office lists more than 250 real estate transactions from 1864 to 1910 . Selling various tracts and lots of the years but retaining the adjoining pieces in 1909 at the age of 77 R C and his wife Martha conveyed the lot on the east to their son Willie and on the west to their grandson Eugene whom they raised. Willie and Eugene both constructed Tudor style homes on these lots.

Hon R C Winslow

Punxsutawney lost one of her most highly esteemed citizens Wednesday night when Hon R C Winslow passed away at his home on Torrence Street. Although he has been in ill health for some time, Mr. Winslow’s death was unexpected and the news of his demise when told on the streets was a surprise and shock to many. Following a severe attack of grippe this winter he was able to be about and on the morning of the day of his death he was able to walk about the house until 8 o’clock when his heart action grew weak.. Physicians were summoned but nothing could be done to stay the hand of death and he passed peacefully away at 11 o’clock PM in the seventy ninth year of his age.

The Winslow family were among the earliest settlers of the south end of Jefferson county coming here earliest down east early in the year 1818. They were descendants of the Pilgrim settlers of Plymouth, Mass.

For several years the deceased had been the senior member of the Jefferson county bar.

Mr. Winslow was actively engaged in the banking business for many years. He was one of the organizers of the old Mahoning bank in 1868 among the founders of which Gen Harry White is probably now the only survivor. He was president of the First National bank from its foundation in 1883 to its merger with the Punxsutawney National Bank in 1909.

Mr. Winslow took an active part in politics from the standpoint of a Republican and in 1873 was elected to the State senate serving until 1876. He was also active in other business affairs being one of the founders of the Punxsutawney Water company and of the first Electric Light company of which he has always been a director.

He has been attached to the Methodist Episcopal church from his youth, has been for many years an active member of its board of trustees , and a teacher in the Sunday school. He was president of the official Board of the Church for over thirty years.

In 1846 he returned to Punxsutawney and became engaged in lumbering, in which business he was actively engaged until 1874. In 1858 he removed to Clayville, where he has since permanently resided.

They have five children- Amanda J., married William B. Sutter; William M., Kate L., wife of John W. Parsons ; James L. and Anna.

General Notes: Family Notes

I am a descendent of Lucy Winslow, the daughter of William Winslow b. 1785 in Freetown, Mass. He like many other Winslows was descended from Kenelm Winslow. My ancestor Lucy came to SC with her sister Jane sometime around 1830.

There are two family stories. One is that Jane came to teach school and Lucy her younger sister came with her. The two girls were left orphans before they were 18.

Another story which has a ring of truth is that Lucy’s father came South to assist William Gregg on a textile venture. According to the story Gregg had made trips to New England on behalf of the industrial world. It is speculation but it is believed that Gregg hired Winslow on behalf of the SC Railroad Co. Gregg founded textile mills on the SC side of the Savannah River across from Augusta, GA. The town that sprung up was Graniteville, Sc. At one time it was a leading Textile manufacturing town. The land Gregg wanted to buy was owned by my Great, great, great grandfather Ransom Hamilton. Lucy married T, J. Hamilton the son of Ransom. Now that is probably more than you wanted to know.

Did you know that the home that Edward and Kenelm’s grandfather lived in in Kempsey, England still stands? I saw it in 2006–a beautiful thatched roof house. It is currently undergoing serious repairs. Since it is an important house–yes, the people of Kempsey (Worcestershire) are proud to claim the Winslows– and well over 400 years old every repair has to be done just as it was done way back in the early 1500s. It cost over 75 thousand to rethatch the roof! The current owner –not a Winslow- says it will cost around $1,000,000 to restore it. And they call it a cottage!
