Biographical / Historical

Wade Stockwell Wineman Jr. was born in Greenville, Mississippi, to Wade Stockwell Wineman Sr. (1921-1994) and Nancy Wineman. Wade Stockwell Wineman Sr. and Jr. worked together appraising land. They worked on Mississippi Highway Department projects by determining the cost of land around various proposed highway routes. Robert P. Wineman, the father of Wade Stockwell Wineman Sr., was the son of Albert G. Wineman and Mary Ann Wineman. After Albert Wineman’s death in 1921, Robert Wineman, along with his siblings and mother, inherited the land and timber company, A.G. Wineman and Sons. This included land in the Mississippi delta and across the Mississippi River in Arkansas. Wineman Land and Timber Company was eventually created after dividing the land. Myrtis Stockwell Wineman, Wade Stockwell Wineman Jr.’s grandmother and Robert P. Wineman’s wife, was born in 1893 ten years after her older sister Eunice J. Stockwell. They were the daughters of Florine Williams Stockwell and George Stockwell. Eunice J. Stockwell began a genealogical project on their family for the local Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.). She spent many years working on her parents’ genealogy, which included the Stockwell, Williams, and Guice families. After Eunice Stockwell’s death, her sister Myrtis Wineman continued her work and chose to include her husband’s family, the Winemans. Together, the sisters were able to trace some of the families back to the 1600s.
