States: North Carolina: Burke
I would like to know if Thomas Winkler b. 10 jun 1794 in NC had a brother named Benjamin. I read several postings that claimed that Thomas' parents were Joseph Winkler and Catharine ?. In the 1830 Burke,NC census I found my Benja Winkler listed right above Joseph Winkler. This makes me think that they were related. Benjamin and his family moved to Frogtown, GA around 1834. He is listed in the 1838 Geogia census. However, by 1840 he no longer shows. Instead Sarah his wife is now listed as head of the household with 4 daughters and two sons. Sarah died in 1842 leaving behind 6 orphans.The three older children were Miles Allen, Mariah,and Sarah. I think that Thomas and his wife Esther moved their family from Burke, NC to Frogtown, Ga and raised the three younger children as their own, but I don't know how to prove it.Back in 1850 the censuses didn't show relationship to the head of the household. Can anyone help me!!!! I have a few other reasons that makes me think this is true, but I already wrote a book here so please email me at email@example.com and I can further explain.
