Julina was the third child and second daughter of William Grant and Mary Elizabeth Wisdom Winbourn. "Junie" was born November 4, 1864 on 13th Street on the banks of Cherry Creek, in a thriving little town called Denver City, which later became the city of Denver. Her parents and other settlers had left their farms in Weld Co, Colorado Territory because of an Indian scare. Here they were protected by United States Troops. On the 29th of November 1864, over a thousand Indians were killed in a battle with Colonel John M. Chivington, the Methodist minister turned soldier, at Sand Creek, known as the Sand Creek Massacre. This area was just a few miles south of where Julina was born. Later, her father returned to tend to his fall and winter crops. It is not known when the family returned to their home.
