C. J. WINEMILLER
    dealer in groceries, meats and country produce, on the corner of Park and Oak streets, Sidney, O., is a merchant of many years' experience and is one of the representative business men of this city. He was born on a farm in McLean township, Shelby county, O., June 11, 1873, .and is a son of George and Dorothy (Hook) Winemiller, and a grandson of Jacob Winemiller, who came from Germany and was an early settler in Shelby county. C. J. Winemiller was reared on his father's farm and attended the public schools of McLean township. Other members of
the family became farmers but he chose school teaching for his business and for eight years taught very successfully in McLean, Cynthian, Turtle Creek and Van Buren townships, all through which sections he still has many friends. He then embarked in a mercantile business, although for three more years he continued to teach, and also managed his store and was postmaster at Uno, in Turtle Creek township. When the rural mail routes were established many of the smaller post offices were abolished, Uno being one of these, and in December, 1907, Mr. Winemiller came to Sidney, where he found a wider business field. He carries a large and well-selected stock and enjoys a liberal amount of patronage. Mr. Winemiller was married to Miss Carrie Markley, who was born and reared in Turtle Creek township, a daughter of John and Kate Markley, and they have one son, Carl. Mr. Winemiller is identified with-the fraternal order of the Woodmen of the World and belongs to both branches of Odd Fellowship. He has never been active in politics but: may always be found among the citizens who stand for law and order and for civic betterment.
