Hello Jo Ann, I too am a Winebrinner. My Grandmother Nora "Della" Winebrinner she married Charles Sherrer. My relations to the Winebrinners are from Waynesville, They came from Kentucky. What I have figured out is that they Migrated from Germany. I found this out from the De Witt Co. census from 1880. It says aHugh Winbrinnner who at the time was 27 was from Germany and most likely is related to the waynesville clan. His residence was Waynesville, He is burried in Woodlawn cemetary (I think, unsure of the name. Most of the deceast Winebrinners are burried in Evergreen Cemetary.
