Gone to Other Hunting Grounds
Mt. Savage, MD, April 6, 1895

The funeral of Mr. Isaac Winebrenner, who died at the residence of his son Morice[sic], near Eckhart Mines on April 3, took place this morning, with Rev. Britt, of the English Lutheran church of Frostburg, officiating.  After the ususal service the aforesaid minister chose for his text St. Matthew 25th chapter, 14th, 15th and 19th verses, from which he preached a very suitable and eloquent sermon. The decased[sic] was born near Midlothian mines, two miles west of Frostburg, in the year 1804.  He saw Allegany Co. in its infancy, long before the locomotive ever passed up its valleys.  He saw the beginning of our great coal industry and could describe every stage of its development, vividly.  He often told the writer of this article that when he first remembered Frostburg, it consisted of two or three houses, but even in that town in later years he saw such men of national prominence as Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson.  He was always glad to relate the progress and prosperity of his native county, and would tell of occurrences of seventy years ago with as clear a recollection as if they had only happened within the last week.He was the father of eleven children-- six sons and five daughters, and was father, grandfather and great-grandfather of two hundred and seventy-seven descendents.  The remains were interred in the old Porter burying ground near this place, where sleeps many of his relatives and friends who have passed into the great beyond many years before him.  Mr. Winebrenner was one of the greatest hunters in this section of the State.     06 Apr. 1895

Botsford, pastor, officiating.  Burial will be in Rose Hill Cemetery.  Mr. Winebrenner, who died last Sunday, was a life long resident of Cumberland; was a Union veteran of the Civil War; a member of Tyler Post, No.5, G.A.R.; Kiowa Tribe, No. 143, Inproved Order of Red Men, and for many years was vice president of the Chapel Hill Hose Company.

WINEBRENNER, Noah

Death Probe Discontinued
Investigation in the "possible foul play" death of a 60?69? year-old Keyser area man was discontinued yesterday when authorities were told he died of a cerebral hemorrhage apparently resulting from a fall. The victim, Noah Winebrenner, was found unconscious Friday afternoon on the floor of his home near Markwood along Route 50. He died in Potomac Valley Hospital at Keyser. Cpl. O. G. Webley of the West Virginia State Police said Winebrenner had a severe cut on the top of his head, causing authorities to suspect foul play. However, it was determined the elderly man fell against a door frame and was knocked unconscious. Webley assisted Prosecuting Attorney Vernon E.Rankin in the probe. It is not known whether the hemorrhage resulted from the cut. Dorothy Grimm, 17, and her brother, James, 14, who reside at the Winebrenner residence, made the discovery after they returned home from Keyser High and New Creek Elementary schools, respectively, Friday. The summoned a neighbor who telephoned for an ambulance.

Lonaconing, Md., April 7. George Winkler died at his home in Barton Wednesday night at 9:45.  Mr. Winkler had been an invalid several years, but had been able to get about until about two weeks ago.  He was a native of the province of Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, and came to this country in the early '60s.  He lived in Newark, N. J., a short time and came to George's Creek in 1864.  He lived in Lonaconing several years and spent some time in Piedmont.  He returned to Germany for a brief visit and while there married Madeline Hohing, who is a sister to the late Conrad Hohing, of Lonaconing.  Mrs. Winkler survives her husband, but is very feeble.  Mr. Winkler leaves his sons, Adolph, August, Otto, Joseph and Edward, and one unmarried daughter, Miss Teresa.  All these reside in Barton.  George Winkler learned the locksmith's trade in Germany, and worked at it for several years after coming to this country.  After coming to George's Creek he became a mine blacksmith and worked many years at the old Barton mine.  Although always a working man, he acquired a thorough education, and was considered one of the best scholars in this region.  He had a wonderfully retentive memory, and being a greedy reader, he kept well posted on all subjects of public interest.  The funeral will take place from St. Gabriel's Church. Barton, tomorrow at 9 a. m., and will proceed from Barton to the Catholic cemetery by street car."
