Finally, I have some old pictures to post. This is a picture of dad's family, probably when Uncle Roy was about 10 or so in the front to dad on the back right in his 20's I think. You notice Grandpa George B. Winkle with his 'spenders on beside Grandma Mamie, surrounded by the famous seven sisters, Florence on the left, Mildred, Ruby, Claudia, Betty, Jane, and Winnifred Winkle.
This is Aunt Jane who passed away this spring at 90 years old. I think the picture says 1944. This is the Farmall Regular dad learned on and always talked about. I see they used stale seedbeds and she must be harrowing for planting. I don't know where there is a field that is flat. I wonder how much erosion has occurred. I always thought dad did a good job with that!
This is my Aunt Jane holding me as a baby in front of the house I was raised in Sardinia, Ohio. This should be 1950 and that is my room at the top left and I think Linda was in the top right. Maybe she can correct me on that if I am wrong. We called this the Civil War house on the Bare Plantation. It was torn down in 1956 or so.
This is my dad on the left, me in the middle and Uncle Roy on the right. Jane is talking to us at some family get together at the Zimmerman house on Miami Road, Cincinnati and I don't know the year. I have that ugly Ohio Certified Seed Inspection hat on as LuAnn calls it. I never looked good in John Deere colors! I started there in 1985 so I know it is after that. This will be my 29th year with them and that does not seem possible.
Thank you cousin Jenny Wilkerson, Jane's youngest daughter for sharing these from California.
Now you know some Winkle family history in Brown County, Ohio!
