In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.
“Virginia Kathrine Winn, of Miami, Fla., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Turner Winn, and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Wyatt, of this city.”
- Andrew T. Winn, his wife Ermina, daughter Virginia, and brother-in-law Garner Wyatt are found in the 1930 census in Miami, Dade County, Florida; all are reported as being born in Tennessee. Virginia is reported to be 5 years old. [Source: 1930 U.S. census, Dade County, Florida, population schedule, Miami, Enumeration District (ED) 12, p. 3-A, dwelling 78, family 78, Andrew T. Winn; digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 16 Dec 2011); citing NARA microfilm publication T626, roll 308.]
- The name of the newspaper in which this photograph appeared and the date of publication are unknown.
- Virginia Katherine Winn married Prentice Walton Smith in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on April 28, 1943; click here to see the news clipping announcing the marriage.
- The relationship between Virginia Kathrine Winn and her parents and Laurine Wyatt is unknown. However, Virginia’s mother was a Wyatt so likely there is some familial relationship.
