Fortson of LA & Fortson/Wynne

I have some marvelous pictures that I took while visiting De Soto Parish, LA in 1980 of Bona H. Fortson, dauighter of Richard S. Fortson. She never married and was granddaughter of Andrew Jackson Fortson and Mary Frances Satterwhie. Andrew Jackson Fortson was son of William Thomas Fortson who married Sarah Shackelford. William Thomas was son of William Fortson and Ann Higginbotham.
William Fortson was son of Thomas Fortson Jr. and Rachel WYNN and Thomas Jr. was son of Thomas Fortson who married Elizabeth WINN.
My objective here is to determine which family line of Wynne/Wynn/Winn that Rachel and Elizabeth descended from.
I also have a picture of Bona's batchelor brother who appears to be older but, can you believe, I don't have his name!
They lived together in a an old, immaculate, rambling home set in a utopian countryside scene (Lord knows what it looks like today).
In 1860, my great grandfather, Peter Davis Wynne, Jr. sold 20 acres to A. J. Fortson on the old Naborton Road.
