Overview

The legacy of John Robert Wingate, who died in1902 in Nacogdoches County, Texas was a large extended family that grew up in and around Nacogdoches and surrounding areas of East Texas. A dedicated father and saw mill operator, John's Texas roots grew out of his native Mississippi and North Carolina. Great, great grandfather Edward Wingate of Brunswick County, North Carolina was an officer in the state militia during the Revolutionary War. His son Walter aided the patriot General Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox." John's grandfather, Edward Taylor Wingate, eventually also came to Texas (although estranged from his Mississippi family) and served in the Mexican War. He has been confused with the Edward Wingate who was martyred at Goliad during the Texas Revolution against Mexico. John's father, Robert Harrison Wingate, served in the home guard for the siege of Vicksburg and, after exchange, in a Mississippi Confederate cavalry unit for the remainder of the U. S. Civil War.
