JOSEPH F. WINKLER, born in Knottsville Precinct, June 6, 1841, is a son
of William Winkler, a resident of this precinct. He was reared on a
farm and early learned the science of farming, and having put his
knowledge into practice has developed into a model farmer. He owns 158
acres of good land. He also owns and runs a horse mill, the burrs of
which are the oldest in the county, having been brought from Evansville
in a row-boat by William Mason, before Owensboro was platted. His
father used them many years, and they still do good work, Mr. Winkler
doing his own grinding and much custom work for his neighbors. He
enlisted in the late war, in Company E, Twelfth Kentucky Cavalry, U. S.
A.; was in forty-two raids and skirmishes. A part of his company helped
capture Jeff. Davis. December, 1859, he married Amanda Medcalf,
daughter of Edward Medcalf. Six children have been born to them, five
now living--Elizabeth E., William E., Emma O., Thomas E. and Mary E.
Mr. Winkler has been a member of the Mt. Zion Cumberland Presbyterian
Church twenty-five years.
