Welcome to WINKER.NET, genealogy
information for those with the surname "Winker".
This location is meant to allow family members to share news, photos,
and family history.
photos. In addition to Winker
family biographies, there is ancestry information on the Lux, Goerger,
Borgmann, Richter, Calhoun and Feuerstein
families that are related to the Winker family. Most of these families
had their origins in Germany/Prussia, and all immigrated to America in
the early to mid 1800s. The Calhouns were from Ireland (obviously) and
arrived around 1820.
The Winker surname can be traced primarily to the town
of Spaichingen, Baden-Württemberg, not far from Switzerland. Most
Winker ancestors originated from this vicinity.
I have not posted many updates in recent months as much of my
research is at a standstill.
I did get a phone call from LUX researcher Ann Gilchrist that
she had located the ship's record with the Florian Lux family.
In November, 2010, I had the opportunity to meet with Dawn
Winker, granddaughter of Henry Joseph Winker, in Portland, OR. We had a
nice visit and spent a few hours sharing family stories.
- Nov 2008 - Looked up the WHITE and BERTRAM familes on
Ancestry.com. Catherine LUX was married to Norwood WHITE, Ruth LUX
married Herbert BERTRAM. Much of the information was found in U.S. and
Minnesota census records.
- WHITE - Traced back to James H. White, born 1844 in NY.
He married Phoebe McCollum, born 1850 in NY, about 1868. Their youngest
son was James H. White Jr., born 1879 in MN, married to May Busch about
1908. Norwood White was the 5th of 7 children born to James and May
- BERTRAM - Peter Bertram, born 1846 in Germany, arrived
in the U.S. in 1872 and settled near Spring Hill, Minnesota. He married
Caroline (last name unknown) in 1876 and they had nine children who
survived to adulthood. Mathias and Edith (LNU) were married about 1913
and were the parents of Herbert Bertram.
