  • The Gilmer County Marriage register records Winney's marriage to Toliver Green:

    In October 2010, I received a copy of the actual handwritten record from the Georgia record books, found in Georgia's Virtual Vault - Book 1835-1852 Micro Film by a cousin Cynthia Mixon Beam.  Here is my transcription of the document.

    Georgia, Gilmer County, page 19

    You are hereby authorized to join Toliver Green and Winney Ann Beardin in Lawful bonds of Matrimony agreeable to the Constitution and Laws of this State.

    Winnie Bearden's name is also spelled Winney, in some genealogies, and in the 1850 census, Gilmer County, Georgia.

    Winnie and Toliver have 4 children at the time of the 1850 census.

    1850 Federal Census, Gilmer County, Georgia, Subdivision 33, page 397B (scan #100), Hse/Fam #691
    Toliver Green 33 M Farmer born SC
    Winney Green 28 F born GA
    Telitha Green 7 F born GA
    Daniel Green 6 M born GA
    Mary Green 4 F born GA
    Jacob Green 1 M born GA

    Before the 1860 census, they moved to North Texas, and are enumerated in Gainesville, near the Red River border with Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory.  Most of their children later moved into Indian Territory.

    1860 Federal Census, Cooke County, Texas, 21 July, Gainesville, page 58, Hse #481, Fam #496
    Taiferro [Taliaferro or Toliver] Green  48 M Farmer [No real estate value] $250 Personal Estate  born SC
    Winna [Winney] Green  38 F Georgia
    Daniel Green  16 M born Georgia
    Mary Green  14 F born Georgia
    Jacob Green  12 M born Georgia
    Jackson Green  10 M born Georgia
    Winna Green  8 F born Georgia
    Elizabeth Green  6 F born Georgia
    Cyntha Green  3 F born Georgia

    Several genealogies report that Winney died in 1900, in Limestone County, Alabama, but give no documentation for that fact.  I have been unable to find any information on her death.  The last place of residence documented for Winey Ann Bearden is Gainesvile, Cooke County, Texas, in the 1860 census.

    Several genealogies have copied from each other the unsupported report of Winney's death in Limestone Co AL. No such genealogy gives a source.  I have found no info that Winney moved to Alabama at such a late stage in life.  I have found no record of place or date, but all indications are she was in either north Texas or southern Indian Territory.  Her various children are documented in these areas.

    And keep in mind, when she died her last name was Green, not Bearden.
