My 5th great grandfather William Winn (Wynn) was an Indian who served in the King William County Militia during the Revolutionary War.  During one of his enlistments he was stationed at Sandy Point in Charles City and on another he joined an army of 7,000 under the command of Gen. Lafayette at Malvern Hill.  His son, Ferdinand Wynn, my 4th great grandfather owned a blacksmith shop at Charles City Courthouse.  When the Union Army retreated from Harrison’s Landing in August of 1862 Union soldiers plundered his vegetable garden, raided his beehive, took his corn, tore down his fence and threw the fence in the swamp for the artillery to cross over.
