Winker.net - Guestbook
Thank you for visiting the WINKER.NET web site.
18 May 2003: In recent months there has been considerable abuse of this Guestbook by email spammers trying to electronically harvest addresses. Ambiguous messages to collect more victims has been taking place several times a week and I spend more time deleting those messages than I do enjoying the friendly messages of family members. As a result I feel it necessary to suspend the Guestbook. I regret having to take this action, but feel it is necessary to protect the privacy of legitimate visitors to this site.
Since most harvesting is done electronically, I have slightly altered the email addresses on this page so spammers' computers will not recognize them as email addresses.

I am from SPAICHINGEN, GERMANY. All my relatives still live there, but, going through the cemetery, I found many Winkers that I don't know. Didn't know there were so many Winkers living in the United States.

Hey Tim, looks like the site is doing well. Thanks for all your work. I thought I had recently mailed you but maybe just visited the site and saw your pictures. Probably the last time I mailed you was acouple years ago. I'm John and Martha Winker's grandson Bill Feller. Anne was my mom. I recently got interested again in getting all the family info on paper. You must have tons of it. Thanks for providing this forum. I've learned a lot this morning just going thru the guestbook.

[Much of the information on the John and Martha Winker family has been published in the book, The John and Martha Winker Family History - Volume II by Marilyn Schwader. -- TW]
Tim, It is apparent you have put a lot of time and effort into this project. My kids are fascinated as am I and my mother. My grandmother, Beulah Young, is the daughter of Peter Phillips and Katherine Lux (She died with the name of Kroll because she married Lawrence Kroll after divorcing Peter Phillips). Katherine's maiden name was Lux. Her mother and father were August Lux and Catherine Peters, and as you know, August was one of Florian's sons. This so far, is the only thread in my family that I have any information on, so I thank you for your wonderful input. Keep in touch! Barbara

My wife's great grandmother was Martha Winker, married to Richard Rees. His birthdate is 1845. We have no other informaton other than they were from Spaichigen and were baptized in the Church of SS. Peter and Paul. My wife's cousin Father Walter Rees visited a Mr. Roland Weber some years ago and he mentioned a Dr. Winker. Are you his son? Do you know of Martha Winker Rees or the Rees family? Richard Rees' father was Michael Rees 1805-1888 his mother was Franziska Hagen 1808-1863. If you could provide any information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello! I´m very glad to have found this site - the origin of the Winker family seems to be in Spaichingen (Germany, exactly: in Baden-Württemberg, next greater town: Tuttlingen), where the Winker´s are documented since the time of the thirty-year-war (1618-1648). My father was born there, too - jet there live a lot of Winker´s; spread all over Germany about hundred families, all of them with the origin in Spaichingen. - If someone would like to contact me, please send me a mail.

Hey. I came into contact with relatives from the Milwaukee area and they sent me the family tree as they have it at the moment. As I searched the links from this website, I can see already that a lot is not included. I'm doing some research and adding more to it. Just wondering if anyone else has a "Winker Family Tree" in progress.

Hello to all the Winker's around the world. Is anyone of you related to "Michael Winker" who was a painter? He was born in 1890 and died about 1950. I am not a Winker myself (actually I am an Egyptian citizen) but I do own, in my paintings collection, a superb still life, painted in the early 20th century by Michael WINKER. An expert told me he was Austrian. If anyone could feed me back,I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Mahmoud SELIM

Hi! This is Liz (you might know me as Beth). I'm from South Dakota (Charlie's my Dad) but have been living in Germany for almost 10 years now. (Hi Arlene!)
I'm pretty sure that our family has come from Spaichingen, Germany, and I have gotten a couple of addresses from people living there. The Winkers and another family called Hauser emmigrated from Spaichingen in the early 1800's. They've built a small chapel where the names of people who left at that time are listed on the wall and Winkers and Hausers are definitely the main families that were involved.
The Hausers still have family get-togethers. I've been meaning to contact them, but just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll post anything that I do find out though!

Hi to all the Winker's out there. I am looking for my 12-year-old son Dewey's half brother Jason Winker, and Half sister Jasmine Winker, whom he has never met. There father's name is Carl David Winker, last known to me from Lake Havasu City, Arizona. As far as I know, his family is from somewhere in Wisconsin, his (Carl's) mother is Nellie, and also has a brother nick-named Dewey. Please my son wants to know his relatives. He is so mixed up about his life right now, he is getting into trouble at school, and now with the law! Maybe knowing more of his root's will calm him mentally. Thank you for your time. God bless you all. Mary Murphey

Hi. What a surprise to find a Winker Web Site! My grandmother was Martha Magdaline Feuerstein Winker from Leshara, Nebraska who married John William Winker and moved to Kingsbury County, Howard, South Dakota. I have seen a picture of Martha & John's wedding picture that could almost be a duplicate of Lewis & Cecilia's. Also, in the 1st family history book there is a picture of the "Double Cousins" that matches your picture of the family from the 1940's. What fun! My cousin just completed a 2nd family history update on John & Martha's family in the summer of 2000. I can't wait to share your web site with other Winker's.

Just a followup to my previous note. I live in Tallahassee, Florida and I can't take too much of the reponsibility for the interesting presidential election we had last year. I've lived in Tallahassee for almost 30 years having come here to attend Florida State University (go Seminoles!!) in the early 1970s. I have a son, Erik age 20 and a daughter, Blair age 17. My brother and his wife in Plymouth, Wisconsin, have two daughters, married and starting to raise their own families. I notice other Winker's in Wisconsin. Still waiting to hear from Winker's in the Niagara Falls, New York area, where they came from, when and how. Thanks.

I would love to hear from other Winkers. Ken
