Creator Sketch

Robert Stanton Winlock, born on December 14, 1826 in Kentucky, joined the U.S. Army at the age of nineteen and was a participant at the Battle of Buena Vista. Winlock married Bettie Durrett in 1857 (1839-1897) and together they had a son, Edwin Winlock. Shortly after his marriage Robert developed typhoid fever and was left crippled for the rest of his life. Robert S. Winlock died on July 9, 1897. Louisa Ann Winlock, sister of Robert S. Winlock, was born on April 30, 1822 and died on December 1, 1874. F. M. Ballard, whose mother was a cousin of R. S. Winlock, spent much of his time researching his family history.
