In Reply to: Re: Winglers emigrating 1754 and descendants by Linda West of 106

I have found a Nancy Wingler b:1839 in Indiana, probably Washington County, who follows this lineage:

I Ludwig (Lewis) Winkler (Wingler) came to
America in 1754 on the "Edinbough" landing
at Philadelphia, from Holland and settled
in York Co. Penn -- Potts Creek area.
A Francis Wingler b:1776 NC d:1/3/1844 IN
m:Elizabeth "Betsey" Helsley 4/21/1803 in
Rowan Co. NC (moved to IN in 1824)
b Jacob "Doc" Wingler b:1808 NC d:11/18/1869
e Nancy Wingler b:1839 IN

The IAbe would be where Nancy's left off. (There is no other information in the book on her.

My lineage would be the IAba
I Lewis
A Francis
b Jacob
a Alexander e Nancy Wingler
b Alonzo Gentry 1 Minnie Rosetta V.
k Ernest Walter 2 your grandmother
d Clois (Chloe) 3 your mother
4 Linda West
According to the way I calculate, you'd be my third cousin, once removed. Other people calculate it 6th cousins.

If this book is of interest to you, I'd make a copy of it - it has a lot of information about the land grants, wills, and also Revolutionary War information that would allow you (if you can determine the Nancy Wingler connection) to become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution - I haven't looked at anything for a while in regard to the Civil War, but I'm sure there are ancestors there too.

You can email me if you'd like.

Thanks for answering!
