Ancestry of Cherie Lee Phillips
     Jacob Winger was born on 10 September 1818 in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.6,2,7 He was the son of John Winger and Christina Mary Miller.3,4,5 He was baptized on 25 October 1818 in Brush Creek Evangelical Lutheran Church, North Huntington Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.6 He married Maria Sophia Fry, daughter of John Adam Fry and Margaret (?).8 Jacob died in an accidental shooting on 7 January 1873 at his home near Siverlyville, Cornplanter Township, Venango County, at age 54.2 He was buried in Grove Hill Cemetery, Oil City.9
     Jacob moved with his family from Westmorland County to Beaver Township, Venango (now part of Clarion) County about 1825. He moved to Cranberry Township, Venango County in 1839 with his brothers Henry and John. Jacob was taxed for 100 acres in 1845 and again from 1850 to 1853 in Cranberry Township. He was also taxed for 100 acres of land in President Township, Venango County in 1851 through 1857. In 1858 Jacob's 100 acres were recorded as unseated and by 1859 Jacob was no longer listed in President Township. Several other members of the Winger family also lived in President Township during this time. Jacob eventually moved his family to the "Winger settlement" near Siverlyville, Cornplanter Township, Venango County where most of the Winger family finally settled. There is no record of him owning his own property at the Winger settlement.10,11,12
     Various sources record different occupations for Jacob over the years. In the assessment records for Cornplanter Township, he is listed as fisher in 1868, a grocer in 1871 and driller in 1872. According to the obituary of his daughter Eliza (Winger) Motter, Jacob was a blacksmith. And finally, one of the many newspaper articles about his untimely death reports that Jacob and his son were familiar with the use of fire arms as hunting was their winter occupation. It is unclear if this reference is to a money-earning endeavor or as an activity that provided his family with fresh meat.13,14,15
     Jacob Winger and Sophia were raised in the Lutheran church and at least their oldest son John was baptized in the St Paul's Lutheran and Reformed Church at Knox, Beaver Township, Clarion County. However, they probably began attending the Methodist Episcopal church when they moved to Cranberry Township or Oil City. Jacob's obituary reads "Mr. Winger was a highly estimated citizen and a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Sophia's obituary stated: "She had many friends in Oil City and this section who will learn of her death with regret and cherish her memory for her Christian virtues. She was a member of the M.E. Church since her early childhood and a devoted mother and valued neighbor."16,17,18
     Concerning Jacob's untimely death, while Jacob and his son Adam were preparing to go out hunting, Jacob was accidentally shot and killed by a gun that Adam was handling. Two articles from The Derrick describe the event in vivid detail. The first reads as follows:

"The father [Jacob] had cleaned out the gun preparatory to going hunting and put it upon the rack. The son [Adam] took the gun down, asking if it was loaded, and was answered in the negative by the father. The son then blowed in the muzzle of the gun, and finding it was obstructed, tried to clean out the vent by blowing in it. Not succeeding, he put a cap on the nipple to blow out the obstruction. When the hammer fell, the gun discharged a full load, taking effect in the head of the father who stood close to the muzzle of the gun, killing him instantly. The coroner was summoned form Franklin to hold an inquest last evening."

An article in The Derrick the following day reports the results of the coroner's inquest:

"The jury rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his death by the accidental shooting in accordance with the facts stated in The Derrick.
Mr. Winger at the time of the accident was sitting in a chair near the window with his elbow upon his knees and his head resting upon his hands. The son, a young man about sixteen years of age, was directly behind his father near the door, while Mrs. Winger was at the cupboard at the opposite end of the rooms and directly within range of the fatal bullet. As soon as she heard the report of the firearm, she immediately turned around and was just in time to catch Mr. Winger in her arms. He never spoke and died instantly. The ball entered the back of the head near the neck and passing upward through the brain lodged in the skull near the crown of the head, where it still remains. Although it was an ordinary size rifle bullet, it tore a terrible and ghastly looking hole, probably and inch and a half in diameter. The room where the accident occurred in small, about fourteen by sixteen feet and of course the muzzle of the gun would be but a few feet from the head of the unfortunate man. Had the bullet passed on, Mrs. Winger would have also been struck, as she was directly within range."

     The initial report in The Derrick reports that Jacob and his son were familiar with the use of fire arms as hunting was their winter occupation. The coroner's inquest article states that Adam "whose misfortune cased this sad bereavement is (himself) nearly crazed with grief."15,19
