I am also a descendant of William Redwine; by 1830 he was in Hinds County, Mississippi; by 1840, in Lafayette. I am still battling that wrong information, that he was married to a Mary, or Malinda Lou, or Mary Malinda Lou Cox. I've checked it, and checked it, and it is just not true. Mary Cox's husband William Redwine lived in Rowan County, in 1820, when they married. In the 1830's, he died; no will, but the probate papers clearly list Mary Redwine as his widow, and even have a William Cox involved. I feel that the blatant acceptance of that William as ours, has hindered investigation into the identity of William's probable only wife, Jane.
I am descended through William's son Jesse M. Redwine, and through his son William C. Redwine, and through his daughter Victoria L. Redwine, who later married Willis Walter Cox, a union veteran. I have an old tintype which was labled as Victoria's, and her somewhat exotic look lends support to the old family history that there is Native American blood somewhere in the line. I've not found it.If you want, I can e-mail scans of her photo, plus other ones from the same album, but all unlabled. Before I die, I really would like to learn the ancestry of Jane.
