Among my father’s genealogical records are a number of photos of his uncles, the sons of Ashbel Winegar and Mary Rease Roberts. I don’t remember my father really mentioning these family members, and I never met any of them. I have very little information about this side of the family, but I want to share the photos and what information I have. For my siblings and cousins, these men are our great-uncles. I have had no contact with the descendants of these men but I hope to eventually make contact with them.

Charles was the oldest son of Ashbel and Mary. He married Lizzy Gertrude Early in about 1901. They had two children, Gertrude Marguerite 1902-1989 and Earl Don 1896-?
