We are leaving off the old records of the County Court of Smith County for the time being and will give this week some family history.
One of the families that once had quite a lot of members here in Tennessee, which is now nearly out of the "picture," is the Winkler group. The oldest member of the family, of whom we have any information, was Ephraim Winkler. He is believed to have married a Miss Sloan. He came long years ago from Virginia to the Pleasant Shade section of Smith County, settling on one of the branches of Peyton's Creek about two miles northeast of Pleasant Shade.
His children were: John Winkler, married first a Piper, but the second wife's name is not known; Arthur, commonly know as "Arter" Winkler, married a Sanderson, daughter of Edward Sanderson; Alfred Winkler, and here our information concerning this man ends; Levi Winkler, believed to have married a Hiett; and Samuel Winkler, who settled in the present Macon County, and for whom Winkler's Cross Road, a few miles north of Red Boiling Springs, is supposed to have been named.
We have information about only two of these five brothers. Arthur and Alfred Winkler. Arthur Winkler and his wife, the former Miss Sanderson, were the parents of : Hardin Winkler, married Elmira Austin; Henderson Winkler, married Barthenia Climer; Scott Winkler, committed suicide as a young man, and we believe unmarried; Andrew Winkler, also a suicide; Wilson Winkler, died as a young man; Joanna Winkler, married Howard Kemp; and Emily Winkler, married Andrew Cartwright.
Alfred Winkler married a Miss Bradley and became the father of the following : Henry Winkler, died as a young Confederate soldier and never married; Martha Winkler, married Jimmie, son of Milton, son of Little Bill Gregory, a brother of our own great-great-grandfather, Jeremiah Gregory; Mary Ann Winkler, married Frank Kemp; Laura Winkler, married Henry Gregory, son of Jabe Gregory, a brother of the Milton Gregory above mentioned; Fannie Winkler, married William Smith, son of Calvin Smith, and a brother of the late P. D. (Did ) Smith; Tennie Winkler, married Kinney Kemp; Alice Winkler, married W. H. (Buck) Piper; one other daughter whose name is believed to have been Susan Winkler, married a Williams; John Bell Winkler, married Margaret, a sister of Henry Gregory; and Wade Alfred Winkler, married a Baker.
Martha Winkler and her husband, Jimmie Gregory, were the parents of: John Gregory, Henry Gregory, living at present in Nashville; Ella, married Tom Smith; and Ollie, married Charlie Oldham, son of Templeton Oldham. Mary ann and her husband, Frank Kemp, were the parents of a son, Walter Kemp; Laura Winkler and her husband, Henry Gregory, were the parents of one son, Bell Gregory, now living neat Gallatin; Fannie and her husband, William Smith, went to Texas, and we have no further record.
Tennie Winkler and her husband, Kinney Kemp, were the parents of one daughter, Maude, who married Howard Gregory, son of another Jabe Gregory, who was the son of Gid (Bethel) Gregory, still another brother of the Milton Gregory above mentioned. Alice Winkler and her husband, Buck Piper, had two sons, Willie, who died at four years of age; and D. Henry Piper, who is one of the leading citizens of Lafayette.
Herbert Winkler, a Church of Christ minister who resides in Nashville, is a distant relative of the Winklers above mentioned. We believe we have his line of descent somewhere, but lack of time forbids our looking it up at present.
If any member or relative of the family can give us additional information, we shall be glad to publish same. We should have added that both John Bell and Wade Winkler died without issue.
