TOWN OF GUIN IS NAMED FOR EARLY DOCTOR GUIN

Dr. Jerry GUIN came to Guin, before the town was begun in 1873, purchasing
his land from John T. MEADOR. He was the first doctor in that area before
the town and the Railroad days, and donated much of the land for the town
of Guin, and for the Railroad right-of-way, and the town of Guin was named
for him. He also donated the land for the Guin Cemetery in the 1880's.

Dr. Jerry Guin, the man for whom the town of Guin was named, was the first
doctor in the area around Guin, before the town was established. He owned a
great part of the land on which the town was built and also deeded the
right-of-way to the Railroad in 1883, and 1886. He had previously purchased
the land from John T. MEADOR in 1873, the year he came to Guin. He also
donated land for the Guin Cemetery.

He figured into much of the town early history but since most of his
relatives are gone from Guin, we were able to get only a small amount of
information from his wife, the former Blanche COLLINS.

Dr. Jerry GUIN and his wife, Elizabeth, had twelve children, nine sons and
three daughters. Sarah was married to an ADAMS and lived in
Nettleton,Mississippi, until her death in 1900. John lived near Guin, and
he also died in early 1900. Jeremiah lived in Fayette County until his
death in 1940. Henry remained in Guin until his death in 1920, as did
Elias, whose death came in 1937.

Ira followed his father as a doctor, but died in 1945 period. Dock and
Newton both lived in Guin, until their deaths early in 1900, as did Lee who
died in 1954. Jack left the country in the 1890's and was never heard from.
Emma married a FLIPPO and lived in Steens, Mississippi until her recent
death. Ella was married to Dan REEVES and lived in Sulligent until her
death in 1954.
