    1. [KYBOONE] Brigadier General John Wingate, War of 1812
    2. Sue Russell via
    3. In this book, HISTORY OF THE WINGATE FAMILY, by Charles E. L. Wingate, published in 1886, there is a letter from R. F. Wingate about his ancestry. R. F. Wingate was born in Boone County, KY in 1822. He says that his grandfather Wingate (no first name) lived on or near the eastern shore of Maryland and was a wagon master in the Revolution. His oldest son was John. The letter states: "Father (John Wingate) first settled in Hamilton, Ohio, and removed thence to Cincinnati, and kept the first hotel ever established in that city, from which place he went in the War of 1812 as Brigadier General under Gen. Harrison and served during that war. Sometime after the close of the War of 1812 he removed to Bigbone Springs or Blue Lick, Boone County, Kentucky, where he built a very large house as a place of resort and also had a trading post with the Indians, removed thence to a farm on the Ohio river, and after several removals finally located in Illinois, Gallatin County." My 4th great grandfather was William Wingate, born about 1774 in Delaware, had his first child in 1805 in Queen Anne's County, Maryland, and migrated to Boone County, Kentucky about 1818. Family legend says that he was a general in the War of 1812. The only information I can find about his military history is that he was a private during the British Invasion of Maryland, 1812-1815 35th Regt. (captain was Noah Merchant, William's brother-in-law) I think that the family legend could have confused William with John. Since they both migrated to Boone County, KY about the same time, they could have been related. I have been unable to find William Wingate's parents. His wife was Sarah Chase, daughter of William and Rebecca Chase. The Wingates (William & Sarah) are well documented in Boone County. If anyone can find a link between John and William Wingate, or the ancestry of either, I would greatly appreciate it.

    3. Hi Sue, William Wingate is my ancestor as well! His daughter, Rebecca, married a McNeely! I have also had difficulty finding his parents! Maybe they are with the McNeely’s, who are also elusive!!!! I was unaware of the Wingate book, so you are ahead of me! Let me know how I can help!
