WILLIAM C. WINGET, merchant, Ostrander ; was born in Union Co., Ohio, May 18, 1816 ; he is the eldest son of a family of ten children of Ezra and Eleanor (Cochran) Winget. The father was born in Virginia Jan. 28, 1795, and the mother in Pennsylvania Oct. 17, 1795 ; their marriage was celebrated in Union Co., Ohio, March 30, 1815 ; they lived in Union Co. until 1827, when they moved to Delaware Co. and began clearing and improving a farm near where the village of Ostrander is now located. Mrs. Winget departed this life Feb. 27, 1858, and her husband July 23, 1870. The father was a prominent and influential man, and held during his lifetime many positions of profit and trust in Delaware and Union Counties. Our subject's early life was spent with his parents on the farm ; he received a good education, and at the age of 18 began for himself as a school teacher ; for several years he taught school in the winter a6 $10 per month, and in the summer worked on a firm; after a time, he was employed by Messrs. Langworthy & Wilcox, of Delaware, to conduct a store for them in the village of Millville ; he remained with them until they sold out, and then entered the employ of the purchaser ; he remained in Millville about three years ; he then engaged in farming for a period of twelve years, at which time he sold his farm, moved to the village of Ostrander, and embarked in the mercantile business. This was in 1853, and was the first store in the place, and the year previous to the completion of the railroad to the village. For twenty-seven years, Mr. Winget has been a merchant in the village, and to-day occupies the same building in which he began business ; he is a thorough business man, and has, by close attention to business and to the wants of his customers, achieved decided success. Mr. Winget is among the few merchants of Delaware Co. who leave come through the different financial panics unscathed. He was united in marriage with Miss Mary Flanegin Feb. 15, 1838 ; she was born in Washington Co., Penn., April 30, 1815 ; there was one child by this union, Lucretia M., born Nov. 14, 1844. Mrs. Mary Winget departed this life Aug. 16, 1878 ; she was a kind and loving wife and indulgent and thoughtful mother, and an exemplary member of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Winget in a great measure owes his success in life to this good woman's help and advice. Mr. Winget was again married, April 21, 1879, to Mrs. Lucinda I. Jones, of Union Co. He was an "Old Line Whig ," and on the organization of the Republican party joined its ranks, and has since been an earnest advocate of its principles. He has been a member of the Presbyterian Church since 1836, and an earnest worker in the Sabbath schools of Ostrander and vicinity since 1829. He was village Postmaster for twelve years, and has held a number of positions of profit and trust in Scioto Township.  (1)
