The name have been spelled other ways. I have learned of a Clara Wispinter 1885-1974 who died in Essexville. I know of Lucretia Wispinter who was born June 25,1878 in Bay City and died May 7,1927 in Bay City as Lucretia Smith wife of Henry Smith. Her father was Charles Wispinter born in Germany and Minnie Mclaughlin born in Ny. Would like any information about the family. I believe that the name could have been spelled Westpinter but found no names spelled this way on internet.
