HENRY WINEGAR. This gentleman whose home is in Metamora Township, Lapeer County, is a son of Adam Winegar, a native of New York who was born in Rensselaer County in 1806. He was a wagon-maker by trade and an expert in different kinds of work.His wife, Lucinda (Ruby) Winegar, a native of Warren County, N. Y., was born in 1822. Her parents, Elisha and Lucy (Clark) Ruby, both natives of New York, came to Michigan in 1833 and settled on a raw farm in Macomb County, where they lived until his death in 1847. They were the parents of eleven children, six of whom are now living, and she survived until 1874. One son, Charles, served through the Mexican War and died one year later, and two sons, William and Oliver served in the Civil War and in consequence of injuries lost the use of his limbs which entitled him to a discharge. He was later killed in the pineries by a tree falling upon him. His family was connected with the Methodist Episcopal Church and his father was a Democrat in his political faith. The parents of our subject were married in 1843 in Michigan and the father, previous to this had come to Michignl in 1837, and settled in Avon Township, Oakland County, and after marriage he rented a sawmill in the same township for five years, after which he bought a partially improved farm in Shelby Township, Macomb County, but two years after removed in the fall of 1850 to the farm where the family now lives which consisted of eighty acres of rough territory with small improvements, and here he lived in a log house. The death of the father occurred August 8, 1881, and in the meanwhile he had put the farm in excellent condition and it comprised then one hundred and twenty acres. He was a Democrat in his political views and for twenty-six years was the Justice of Peace of Metamora Township. Of their two children now living there is one sister, Ellen L. The father of our subject was a very hard worker but during the last eighteen years of his life he was an invalid. For many years he was Director of the School Board and he was ever opposed to secret societies. All of the buildings now upon this farm were put up by him during his lifetime and he gave his children an excellent education so that his daughter has been a teacher.He of whom we write was born in Avon Township, Oakland County, December 20, 1845, and was therefore a child when he came to this county to live and took charge of the farm at the age of
eighteen. His political views bring him into line with the Democratic party and he has been twice elected to the office of Constable but has declined to serve, although he has filled official positions upon the Board of Review and for many years upon the School Board. He has frequently been a delegate to conventions and is a member of the County Democratic Committee.
Mr. Adam Winegar had by his first marriage with Esther Ingrham three children, one of whom is now living, namely: Reuben, who married Esther Rowley and lives in Macomb County with his wife and six children. The daughter Harriet was the wife of Almon Parmenter, of Avon Township, Oakland County, and they both died leaving one daughter, Esther, who was Mrs. LaGrange Wheeler, and also died leaving one daughter. Another child, Alphonzo, had one daughter, Ella, who became the wife of Shubin Sweet and the mother of one child. Miss Ellen Wineger, the sister of our subject, is a music teacher in both the instrumental and vocal branches and has had a long and successful experience. The first of the Winegar family in America was the great-grandfather of Adam Winegar who was a soldier in Burgoyne's army, and settled in New York after the Revolutionary War, while Thomas Ruby, the great-grandfather on the other side served through the same conflict under Washington's command. His wife, who lived to the very great age of ninety-seven years was a woman of unusual ability and retained her faculties, both mental and physical, up to the time of her decease. The grandfather of Henry Winegar was a soldier in the War of 1812 and was quite a leader among his neighbors.
