I do not have anything specific on this winger but many of
the wingers are related to the Nighs/NIES/NYES ETC.
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS CATALOG CARD NUMBER 84-61347 is for a book entitledA GENEALOGY OF AMERICAN NYES OF GERMAN ORIGIN,
VOLUME 1, COMPLIED BY L BERT NYE, JR. 1984.
My great grandfather married Ida Nigh who was born in 1872.
Wingers are listed on pages 45,46,48,112,113, 115,118,215,359,362,368 & 417.
A Winger, supposedly a relative, was the first Bishop of the River Brethren and there is a large monument in his honour at the pioner cemetary located in the golf course at Stevensville, ON.
