Notes for Johann Georg Wink:
Name: last name also spelled Wenk
Haisterkirch: The village today does not possess a pub, though at the time of Karl the Great the place was a focal point for a far-surrounding countryside. A family and baptizing church was mentioned in old documents but at this time only the Roman church tower remains.
   The rise to the Grabener Height takes place leisurely and to a large extent in natural coniferous forest. A number of turns brings one to the 1741 built and 1872 extended Sebastian's Chapel, an old place of pilgrimage. The ceiling fresco is by the baroque painter, Gebhardt Fugel.
   The prospect of the loaf-like crest of the Grabener Height is great. Beyond are about 18 square kilometers of the protected area called the Wurzacher Reeds. The green and grey patterns and the name-giving small town are eyecatchers. Behind it, the particularly beautifully long chain of the Alps emerges.
   To the west, the valley of the Sharkbrook can be seen, but Bad Waldsee hides itself behind the forest, enthroned in the distance of the hill landscape.

Haidgau: Number of inhabitants: 936; Distance from Bad Wurzach: 5 km; Altitude: 670-750m;
   Haidgau lies on the edge of the Wurzacher Reeds, a beautiful southern-slope location with a view to the Alpine chain. There are numerous bicycle and hiking trails, a beautiful village and a children's playground.

Notes for Anton Wink:
Obituary - Der Nordstern, Thursday 9 Apr 1908, page 5
   Im Hause seines Sohnes John ist am vorletzten Sonntag Morgen Herr Anton Wink im überaus hohen Alter von 84 Jahren selig im Herrn entschlafen. Der Dahingeschiedene wurde in Stuttgart, Württemberg, geboren, von wo er in seinen besten Lebensjahren in dieses Land kam und sich in Torah niederließ, wo er sein Schmiedehandwerk betrieb. Von Torah verlegte er sein Heim nach St. Cloud, vondort nach Two Rivers und dann nach St. Paul, wo seine Frau ihm in die Ewigkeit voranging. Nach dem Tode seiner Gattin kam er nach Cold Spring und hatte seitdem sein Heim bei seinem Sohne Johann. Nebst diesem betrauern den Tod des guten Vaters noch drei Söhne Heinrich, Nicholas und Anton und eine Tochter, Frau Joseph Young. Nach einem am Dienstag Morgen in der St. Bonifazius Kirche gehalten Seelenamte fand die Beerdigung unter großer Teilnahme statt. Möge der Verstorbene ruhen in Frieden!

Which translates as:
   In the house of his son John on last-but-one Sunday morning Mr. Anton Wink at the extremely high age of 84 years passed away blessedly into Jesus. The deceased was born in Stuttgart, Württemberg, [ed: he was born in Haisterkirch, Donaukreis, Württemberg, which is relatively near Stuttgart] from where he came in his best years of life into this country and into Torah (Richmond) established himself, where he operated his blacksmith handicraft. From Torah, he transferred his home to St. Cloud, from there to Two Rivers (township in Morrison Co, MN) and then to St. Paul where his wife preceded him into the eternity. After the death of his spouse he came to Cold Spring and had since then his home with his son Johann. Together with this (son) mourn the death of the good father also three sons Heinrich, Nicholas and Anton and a daughter, Mrs. Joseph Young (Yunck). After, on Tuesday morning in the St. Boniface church, a Requiem mass was held, took place the funeral under large participation. May the deceased rest in peace!

   "Have you gone to the Juneau County WiGenWeb site yet? They have now posted a plat map of Wonewoc Township, including Union Center. On my 1875? incomplete copy of the map, Valentine Wink owned 116 acres (section 20) just a bit west of one of my ancestors, Joseph Fisher, whose wife, Theresia, is the one that St. Theresia's church and cemetery are named for. Some Harper lived in section 18, about a mile from there. My map is cut off at that point."

(Note: the 1870 and 1885 census list Württemberg, the 1875 census lists Baden, the 1880 census lists Hanover, and the 1895 census list Germany as her birth place.) Per the 1895 State census, she had lived in the US and Stearns County for 43 years, implying she came to the US and Minnesota about 1851. As Theresia was only two years old when she emigrated, it is likely that Anton and his wife also emigrated about 1851.
   In the 1870 Federal census, this name appeared in the Frank & Theresia (Wink) Schaefer household: Anton Wink, age 11, born about 1859 in Wisconsin. Anton is Theresia's younger brother, so the Wink's must have passed through Wisconsin about 1859, making questionable Theresia's claim of being in Stearns County since age 2.
   In the 1885 Minnesota census, these names appeared in the Frank & Theresia (Wink) Schaefer household: John Wink, age 16, born about 1869 in Minnesota and Mary Wink, age 14, born about 1871 in Minnesota. They are Theresia and Anton's younger siblings. This would imply that that family lived in Minnesota in 1869-1871.

Notes for Peter Frank Wink:
HISTORY of BUFFALO COUNTY and its PEOPLE
by Samuel Bassett Vol II 1916 THE C. S. CLARKE PUBLISHING COMPANY
   Hon. Peter Wink, for thirty-one years a resident of Buffalo county, and at present engaged in the real estate business in Kearney, was born in Wright county, Minnesota, on the 25th of September, 1859. The parents, Valentine and Catherine (Peters) Wink, were farming people and in pioneer times the father took up a homestead claim in Wright county, Minnesota, where he carried on general agricultural pursuits until his removal to Juneau county, Wisconsin, where his remaining days were passed, his death occurring in 1904.
   Peter Wink is the second in order of birth in a family of four children, all of whom are yet living. In his early boyhood he attended the neighboring district schools and when old enough he began to earn his own living, being variously employed. For a considerable time he rafted lumber from the pineries south on the Mississippi river and he was also engaged in digging two tunnels for the Northwestern Railroad Company. During harvest seasons he would hire out to farmers, receiving as high as five dollars per day for his services. This period of his life was filled with an abundance of hard work and was passed among real people who were struggling to get ahead in the world. This was the period perhaps which most largely developed and determined his character. While untiring labor was the order of the day this was also a period of enjoyment, for youth, virile and compelling, made little of obstacles. Mr. Wink saved considerable part of his earnings, the inherent thrift of his German forbears undoubtedly teaching him the importance of saving for the proverbial rainy day. He became foreman on a farm in Clinton county, Iowa, and occupied that position for two years.
   It was in the year 1879 that Mr. Wink was united in marriage to Miss Mary Farrell, and in 1884 he removed to Buffalo county, Nebraska, and purchased two hundred and forty acres of railroad land in Thornton township at four dollars per acre. For twenty-seven years he there resided, devoting his life to general farming and stockraising, during which period he brought his fields to a high state of cultivation and added many modern improvements to the farm, which he still owns. In 1911, however, he left the farm and removed to Kearney, where he opened a real estate office and has since beep engaged in that line of business. He is thoroughly conversant concerning property values and he has negotiated many important realty transfers, being accorded a liberal clientage in his line.
   As the years went on Mr. and Mrs. Wink became the parents of four children: Frank, John, Clara and Alice, but the last named is deceased. The mother passed away in May, 1909, and for his second wife Mr. Wink chose Miss Bertha Vermeulen. In religious faith Mr. Wink is a Roman Catholic. His political allegiance is given to the democratic party and in 1913 he was elected state senator from the twenty-second senatorial district comprising the counties of Kearney, Buffalo and Sherman. He was reelected in 1915 and is now serving for the second term. During both sessions he has been a member the ways and means committee and. during the session of 1915 he was chairman of the committee on irrigation and water power. He took an active part in constructive legislation and was the author of several bills that were passed and are now found on the statute books of the state. He has labored persistently for the benefit of the community and of the commonwealth and efforts have been far-reaching and resultant.
BUFFALO COUNTY TELEPHONE COMPANY
   In the year 1903 several meetings of farmers residing in Thornton and adjoining townships resulted in the organization on April 1, 1903, of the Buffalo County Telephone Company, those signing the articles of incorporation being: George Bischel, Peter Wink, H. G. Rieter, J. D. Lowenstein and W. D. Stadleman. The officers elected being: Peter Wink, president; Joseph A. Waters, vice presidest; George Bischel, secretary; John L. Hopper, treasurer; W. J. Stadleman, manager. The board of directors was: George Bischel, Joseph A. Waters, John L. Hopper, P. F. H. Schars and Peter Wink. The lines of the company covering territory embraced in Center, Thornton, Valley, Schneider, Cedar, Beaver and Loup townships. At the close of the year 1906 the company had 225 miles of wire and 225 phones installed. By January, 1908, the company was out of debt and in September, 1908, a dividend of 15 per cent was declared. In January 1909, it was decided to divide the territory, those tributary to Pleasanton to go with the Pleasanton company and be called the Buffalo County Telephone Company and a new company to be formed to cover the territory tributary to Kearney.

Walter J Wink (son of Valentine Wink) was born 12 Aug 1861 in Red Wing, MN, and died 5 Aug 1932 in Union Center, Juneau Co, WI. He married Mary Harper, daughter of John Harper and Margaret Cassidy. She was born 2 Nov 1866 in Union Center, Juneau Co, WI, and died 15 Jan 1933 in Union Center, Juneau Co, WI.

Notes for Walter J Wink:
Obituary: Wonewoc Reporter, Friday, 12 Aug 1932: WALTER WINK
   Walter Wink was born at Red Wing, Minn., Aug. 12, 1861 and died Aug. 5, 1932 at his home in Union Center after an illness of only two days. He suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and paralysis of the left side while at his farm Wednesday, at about noon.
   Mr. Wink spent his boyhood days on this farm where his parents lived after coming to this vicinity and when in later years he was married to Miss Mary Harper, they bought the farm and their three children, Nora, Edward and Clyde were born there. The two boys preceded him to the better world in their early manhood.
   He is survived by his faithful wife, the daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Murphy, Mrs. Margaret Wink, widow of Edward, eight grandchildren, one brother, John, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Beres, besides many other distant relatives who mourn the sudden passing away.
   Mr. Wink had been a rural mail carrier for some time and a stock buyer 34 years in this vicinity, so had a large acquaintance and many friends in the county who will miss his ??? smile and greeting.
   The funeral services were held Monday at 10 o'clock at St. Theresa's church, of which he was a faithful member. The high mass and sermon were given by the pastor Rev. Fr. Braun, with a very large crowd in attendance. Among those from away who attended the services were Mrs. Margaret Wink and three children and Peter Fable of Hudson. Miss Johanna Murphy of Sparta and Mr. and Mrs. Healy of Beaver Dam.

From Dennis Wink 13 Jan 2005:
   I think I have the mystery of Walter figured out. 1870 Census shows:
Wink Valentine      42 m farmer 1000 600 Wurtemburg
         Catherine     43 f  keeping house      Luxemburg
         Mary            13 f                              Minn
         Peter            11 m                              Minn
         Valentine Jr. 10 m                             Minn
         John H          7 m                              Minn
After taking a closer look at the 1870 Census, the entry for Valentine Jr. might be Valentine J.
   If Walter was born in 1861, and still living, he should be listed in the census. 1900 Census for Valentine Wink states that Catherine had 4 children and 4 are living. Also the 1900 Census list a Joseph Wink, wife Mary, children Nora E and Edward F. His date of birth is listed as Aug 1861. All census data is for Wonewoc.
   If you compare this data to the Obituary for Walter, then Walter and Joseph are the same person. This seems like a logical conclusion to me. The only question I have is "Where did the name Walter come from?" What do you think?

Notes for Frank Earl Wink:
Frank grew up near Kearney, NE, where he held his first auction sale at the age of 18. He later was employed by a livestock commission firm (Union Stockyards) in Omaha before moving to Plymouth ID in 1934. He moved to The Dalles OR four years later. In 1938 he built the Wink Auction Yards on West Sixth St (Myer & Franks present location). Ten years later he opened a larger modern yard on the West Columbia River Highway. Also around this time he acquired the Redmond Auction Yard. In 1954 he built the Northwest Livestock Commission Co. in Hermiston OR. In 1958 he built the Goldendale Auction Yard in Goldendale WA. About this time The Dalles yard was torn down to make way for the Interstate Freeway. At one time he was the largest auction yard owner operator in OR.

GROUND SQUIRREL BOUNTY, 1894: In 1894 Buffalo County was overrun by ground squirrels, and a bounty of $0.03 was offered to eradicate the problem. A current (1992) estimate suggests that they cause $2M in damage to corn crops, but in 1894 the rodent's burrows also presented a hazard to livestock, which would step into their holes and break a leg. In June and July of that year more than 13,000 "13 liners" were killed at a cost to the county of less than $400.
   One can imagine that many of the bounty hunters were children, motivated by the prospect of earning money. Some 13-liners were probably shot, but most squirrels were probably taken by poisoning or drowning. Though the 13-liner took a severe hit in the summer of 1894 it was not eradicated, and survives in gardens and lawns today.
   The bounty claim books are in the Archives of the Buffalo County Historical Society. If more information is desired, please write to the Fort Kearny Genealogical Society, Box 22, Kearney, NE 68848, or the Buffalo County Historical Society, Box 523, Kearney, NE 68848.
