bullet  General Notes:

Migration to Ohio. Around the beginning of the 19th century, B. B. Winans came to Ohio, along with his father and other Winans families. He acquired 160 acres along with David Carey on the NE corner of section 2, Spring Creek township, Miami county, 15 Feb 1815. This property adjoins that of his father on the SE corner.
Marriage(s). According to Mrs. Egy's book, Benjamin married Sarah Jane Ross. The 1820 census would place her birth, like Benjamin's, roughly, between 1775 and 1795. It looks as though Ben was also married a second and third time, to judge from the entries we found in the Indiana Marriages through 1850 data base:

In February, the following year, he returned to his home in Indiana, bringing his movable goods, the remainder of his family and his stock..
