It has an excellent location being three-fourths of a mile east of the St. Mary turnpike on the township line road, with postoffice accommodations at Fort Loramie. Mr. Winner married first Miss Josephine Bruns, who, at death, left four children: Joseph A., Herman, Frances Elizabeth and William. Mr. Winner's second marriage was to Mrs. Agnes (Brackman) Richling, widow of August Richling. She had one son. Henry Richling, born to her first marriage. To Mr. and Mrs. Winner four children have been born: Leona, Alexander, Lucinda and Louetta, all surviving except Lucinda.
