Back to Winston Tyson. Winston was mentioned in the previous Who Do You Think I Am post as Eugene Hargraves Tyson’s sister. She adopted Eugene.

It has been handed down that Winston Delitha Winston Tyson applied for got a job as a teacher on General Nathan Greene's plantation on Cumberland Island, near Savannah. It has been handed down that she had the job of teaching on the plantation when Eli Whitney came and applied for the same job.
While there, he invented the Cotton Gin with the help of Mrs. Greene and her comb.

1850 Census in Augusta, Ga., she is listed (#856) with with several other women. She was probably living in a house with other elderly single women.
