RE: Carl Kelley Winters/Winner
OK< I found Sara! Thanks so much. She died in 1911 so she is NOT the R. Kelly I had wondered about. Now she is still a mystery. So glad to know where my great-great grandmother is, though, thanks to you.

RE: Carl Kelley Winters/Winner
Did you find Sarah under the last name of Winters? I was just wondering because I found some small clippings from the time of James death in an auto accident that were thank you notes from Mrs. Martha Winters and Mrs. R. Kelly. I always thought that might be James' mother. Mom said they used to go visit some older lady in Lima, Ohio, so I have been looking for her in Allen County. Where did you find the death cert? I will have to look for it. So exciting to find more about my ancestors! I know so much about my father's family but the Winters side was a mystery for a long time. So glad to have met you!!

Iím in Phillipsburg. Family has been here for 6 generations. Iím 72, time flies. The skating rink has changed hands since Al Singley had it but it is still open. Yes it is a small world.

When I meet someone from the Washington area I think of the Villa Skating Rink where I spent my adolescent years at least two nights a week mostly on the weekends. Good memories. Shirley, much belated condolences to you on the loss of your husband. Do you remember what units he served with while in country? There is much to be said of a manís character who served 3 tours in that hell hole. You might want to view a couple websites I did for the Heroes of our area. You might see someone you remember. Take care, Ron T.

RE: Carl Kelley Winters/Winner
Sorry I did not see this message first. Jsmes was my great grandfather although I never knew him. My grandfather was Elmer and my mother was his eldest child. The story we have always been told was that James "borrowed" a horse, the horse died, and he buried it. The owner pressed charges, and James said if the state wanted to feed his kids, it was fine with him. His wife rented out rooms and did whatever she could to support the family. But also, she moved to Columbus while he was in prison to be near him. The house in Van Wert had been purchased by her parents, John and Roxie Schlictig so she would always have a home. James was an alcoholic and not a good provider. They had six children. Not sure why they got divorced, but maybe because of his drinking. She did take him back, though. My grandfather and Carl ran a bakery together in a little town called Scott, Ohio. Grandpa (Elmer) wanted to move to Paulding, Ohio, so he sold his half to Carl. There was a family feud at some point, maybe over the money, and Carl changed the spelling of his name. It's good to meet a distant relative!!

RE: Carl Kelley Winters/Winner
Yes. I had looked them up on Family and found a marriage cert for 1915. It sort of shocked me because my grandfather was born in the late 1800s so for a short time I felt like I was not who I thought I was. But then I remembered that among my grandmother's things we found papers from a divorce. I'm not sure it was while he was in prison, though, because I also found letter addressed to her in Columbus, Ohio, and my mother said she had followed him around and got a place in Columbus so she could visit him often. She really loved him and forgave him over and over.
