Edwin Ashbel and Myrtie Stephenson Winegar were my grandparents. They had six children. One, Mary Louise, died in infancy. Over the next few posts I want to share some of the photos of these children from my father’s collection. My emphasis will be primarily on old photos that other descendants may not have access to.
The first born child of the couple was Nina Irene, born in 1903. Nina attended school in Wacousta through 10th grade and then attended Central High School in Lansing. She then attended Michigan State College. She would have been the first of her family to graduate from college, but she developed TB and died shortly before she was to graduate. Apparently she completed the course of study because she is in the graduating class picture and is listed in the graduation program. She died in May 1932 and is buried in Niles Cemetery in Clinton County, Michigan.
