My gg grandparents John and Caroline WINKLER were married in Peoria 28 Mar 1856. John Winkler immigated from Germany in 1853 and settled in Fulton Co., IL. Caroline also was a German immigrant, but I have no idea when she came to this country or anything else about her including her surname. The marriage index lists her as Caroline MANDANS. Various other papers I have seen list her last name as MADOUSE or MATAUS. According to her obit she was born 18 Dec 1829 in Mackenburg, Germany. She died in Cuba, IL 29 Sep 1896.

She was the mother of 5 children, Albert WINKLER, b. ca. 1858 in IL [no info after 1870]; John WINKLER, b. 24 Apr 1860 in Cuba, IL / md. Mary Jane HICKS 3 Oct 1883, McDonough Co., IL / 25 Jan 1930; Herman WINKLER, b. 22 Apr 1862 in Cuba, IL / md. Mary Margaret "Maggie" HENDERSON 12 Sep 1888 in Fulton Co., IL / d. 24 Jan 1936 in Cuba, IL / Anton WINKLER [my great grandfather] b. 17 Feb 1866 in Cuba, IL / md. Cordelia Belva "Cordie" BISHOP 31 Dec 1891 in Cuba, IL / d. 30 Jul 1896 in Huntsville, AL; and Mary WINKLER, b. ca. 1868 in further info after 1870. (posted October 30, 2005)

Her life is a puzzle to me. I would appreciate any information re this family.
