RE: "One last comment I acknowledge that the only Anna Marie that I know of in the family is Arnold's daughter born in 1823. Again to me it all hinges on the documents in MC and I want see those records. Thanks for new information (I had Anna Marie listed as unmarried)."
I don't know if you know this but Arnold Thomas Windsor moved to Lafayette Co. Missouri taking his family with him. Anna Marie Windsor married Thompson McGready Ewing in Lafayette Co., as his third wife. They had a few children.
Another thought on the newphew scenario would be..... Thomas Windsor had a sister who married Edward Howse. A deed from Edward Howse to James Brown, dated 1800, shows Edward to have had a wife named Anna (Montgomery Co. Maryland deed book 0, p. 381.
As far as the letter go about CAtherine Windsor haveing the maiden name of Baden:
Letter to Phineas Lawrence Windsor from William Robert Windsor, grandson of Thomas Windsor and Catherine (Baden) dated 10 March 1900, “What I know about grandfather and g mother is from Tradition, My Father has told me that there was two bro came to this contry from England. One setled on the easton Shore of Maryland and the other on the western Shore of Md. Thomas Windsor, the one that settled on the western Shore is the one from whome we descend he was my grandfather and maried Catherine Baden or Beaden. Henry Windsor, my father, was a son of Thomas Windsor and married Mary Simmons.”
From a letter to Phineas Lawrence Windsor from Keturah Ann (Windsor) Waters (age about 75?) dated 8 May 1902, “I will tell what I remember, our Great grandfather Thomas Winsor came from England about his marriage I do not remember his son Thomas the Grandfather of us all of your father if I understand was the son of Thomas from England he came to America, a young man he took up land had a home I do not remember about his father’s death he lived with his son Thomas do not know the time he died I think I have seen the Ephathap (sic) on his grave Now Thomas Junior our Grandfather his father lived and died at the old homestead Thomas Junior married a Miss Catherine Beaden the Grandmother of us all, Grandfather No 1 lived and died with them My father who was Henry Winsor lived with his mother as long as she lived he married a Miss Simmons after her death My father bought the home Place William Winsor now owns it my Brother it is still in the Winsor family a dear old home.”
From letter of Keturah Ann (Windsor) Waters to Phineas Lawrence Windsor, 8 May 1902, “our Grand Mother was a grand woman good Christian Woman great worker in the church had Prayers every Morning & Night She was a Class Leader at a Church was in a country place where there was not energy about such things as church work every Tuesday she had her horse saddled to go to her Class she was an Escobia (???) Lady she lived to a good old age She was 90 years old when she died at our home where she is also buried.”
Keturah Windsor Waters was another granddaughter of Thomas Windsor and Catherine (Baden). Please note that the father of Keturah, Henry Windsor, lived with Thomas and Catherine until their deaths, after which Henry married and had Keturah and her brother William Robert Windsor. Therefore there was first hand knowledge from Henry Windsor to Keturah and William in regard to Thomas and Catherine.
The above letters state that Thomas Windsor was the son of another Thomas Windsor "who came from England" "with a brother"...
I am pretty sure that Thomas Windsor is a descendant of Jarvis Windsor (1640-1729) of Charles Co. Maryland. The records from that early time period in Maryland are scant but the naming patterns in the Thomas Windsor line are similiar to the naming patterns of the descendants of Jarvis Windsor. Also the movement of the descendants of Jarvis generally tended to be northward from Charles Co.
For the record I also think this Thomas Windsor and Catherine Baden line is related to the Isaac Windsor line who went to North Carolina in 1788. Isaac Windsor married Nancy Riley and was also from Montgomery Co. Maryland. Unfortunately the time period for these events do not contain many records and so it is difficult to determine.
My cousin is very enthusiastic about doing DNA work on the Windsor family to determine which lines belong where. None of us are getting any younger and so we may have to settle for a general idea, in some cases, of which Windsor line we came from.
