Mrs. Martha Redwine Nelson published a book on her Redwine family in 1990 (Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore, MD). She is now deceased. She corresponded with me a number of times concerning them. I think I was one of the last people who was able to purchase her book before she died. This book is mainly about John Redwine (1756-1800) and his wife, Sarah (1761-1824). Sarah's maiden name could be either STEINER, SCHRINER or SHIVER, but no documentation was found on any of these names. My line of the Redwine family is from this line.
Mrs. Nelson did extensive research on the REDWINE name and found more than twenty ways it can be spelled. She also found many old records and has a chapter devoted to the origins of this family including information from ships records, old letters, deeds, wills, family bibles, etc. provided by various family members.
The Redwines originally settled in Pennsylvania and migrated here from Prussia by way of England, but at least by 1760 were in Granville County, North Carolina.
One of th earliest records Mrs. Nelson sent to me was a copy of the family bible of Michael REDWILE, who according to this bible, was born March 22, 1732 in Prussia in the Kingdom of Prussia. The title page of this bible reads: " The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Newly Translated out of the Original Greek, and with the former Translations Diligenty Compared and Revised." by His Magesty's Special Command, Appointed to be Read in Churches. Edenburgh, Printed by Alexander Kincaid, His Magesty's Printer MDCCLXIX (1769)
My copy of this has a modern address label attached with Edward D. Fickie of Austin, Texas listed on it. Mrs. Nelson had written across the side of this record that she received her copy from Shirley Martin of Batesville, Arkansas who had received it from Guy Tomlison of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She also stated that she thought it was probably the bible of Michael Redwine, Jr. who married Susannah Miller and had been copied from Michael Redwine, Sr's bible.
The MICHAEL REDWILE BIBLE
The following is the family record from this bible published in 1769:
Michael Redwile born in Prussia in the Kingdom of Prussia Dominions in the year of our Lord 1732 March 22nd.
Michael Redwile and his wife, Christia was married June the 24th 1751.
Christia Redwile wife of Michael Redwile was born Jan. 27th 1728.
Catherine Redwile was born Jan. 20th 1753
Barbary Redwile was born Aug. 23, 1755
Mary Redwile was born Feb. 3rd, 1757
Michael Redwile was born Oct. 29, 1759
Sarah Redwile " " Sept. 3rd 1761
Christiana Redwile was born March 13th, 1763
Charlotte Redwile " " Dec. 21st, 1765
Frederich Redwile " " Nov. 28th, 1767
Polana Redwile " " Feb. 22nd, 1770
Christiana the wife of Michael Redwile was born in Germany.
A second bible record was also sent. Mrs. Nelson wrote across the top of this title page, "From Daniel Redwine Bible". This is what the title page of this bible read. "The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, Translated out of the Original Tongues and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised." Auburn: Published by Alden, Beardsley & Co. Rochester: Wanzer, Beardsley and Co. 1852
There were two loose sheets that appear to have been torn from another record and placed in this bible, because they do not match this record. Here is the information from these two pages of loose paper:
This is believed to be the record of MICHAEL REDWINE, JR.
Michael Redwile born in Prusia in the Kingdom of Prussia Dominions in the year of our Lord 1732, March 22nd.
Christiana his wife was born January 27th 1728
Michael Redwile and Christiana his wife was married June 24, 1751.
Michael Redwine born Oct 29th ____ (Page is cut off when copied)
Susanah Redwine wife was born M__ (cut off) the 24th 1766
Christiana Redwine daughter of Michael Redwine and Susanah his wife was born July 1st, 1784
Sarah Redwine daughter of the same was born January the 6th, 1787
Michael Redwine son of the same was born January the 21st, 1791
Daniel Redwine son of the same was born October the 6th, 1792
William Redwine son of the same was born September 5th, 1794
Leah Redwine daughter of the same was born July 17th, 1800
Rachel Redwine was born daughter of the same May 28th 1803
Jacob Redwine ___(cut off) the same was ___(cut off) June 20th 1807
Notice that the first three entries in the second record match exactly (spelling and date) the information in the bible record of Michael Redwile from 1769 bible. Also the son of this couple, Michael Redwine, has the same birth day and month as this Michael Redwile listed in the first bible record dated in 1769. Mrs. Nelson believes this Michael Redwine, Jr. is the one who is buried in Montgomery County, North Carolina. The dates do match. He died on 02 June 1823. His grave was not found until 1989.
I found this younger Michael Redwine, Jr. listed in the 1790 census for Salisbury District of Montgomery County, North Carolina. He was the only male listed. There were three females in his house. This would be his wife and the two daughters, Susan born 1784 and Sarah born 1787.
In 1800 census he was in Montgomery County, North Carolina. At this time he was listed as a male age 26 to 45, with wife age 26 to 45, a daughter age 16-26 Susan born in 1784 and a daughter age 10-16 Sarah born 1787 and three sons all under age 10 - Michael born 1791, Daniel born 1792 and William born 1894.
In 1810 census he was still in Montgomery County, North Carolina. At this time he was listed as over age 45, his wife was age 26-45, they had two daughters age 0-10 - Leah born 1800 and Rachel born 1803 and one son age 0-10 - Jacob born 1807. Probably the older children were either already married or working out of the home. There is a Michael Redwine, Jr. listed living next door to this Michael (who we have designated as Jr. also). This may be the son, Michael who was born in 1791, but this I am not sure of.
The FAMILY OF DANIEL REDWINE with his bible record.
Now I will list the third record of the bible of Daniel Redwine who later moved to Searcy County, Arkansas. I have already listed the information from the title page of this bible that was published in 1852 and marked as the Daniel Redwine Bible. This record is very ornate and looks much like many older bibles that I have seen previously. It is also divided in to columns marked births, deaths and marriages.
