No, my ancestor is Johann Hermann Winner (always known by Hermann), who was born in the Hannover, Germany, area in 1827. I think he immigrated to the US in 1846. He died in 1901. His only surviving child was my grandfather, Albert A. Winner. He had seven other children who died at the same, apparently in some edidemic in St. Louis. As for his wives, he apparently had three or four; he married my great-grandmother, Lizzie Mannecke Buerk, in 1892 or 1893. She died in 1941. My father did some research into this family and discovered that Hermann changed his name from Von Dreele to Winner before he left Germany. Do you know anything about that? Hermann is buried in Old St. Marcus in St. Louis (now a park) with his penultimate wife, Elisabeth, and seven children.
