Family Genealogy

My gg-grandfather, Lorenzo Dow Weinhart, had three brothers. Lorenzo after traveling about for twenty years settled in Ankeny, Iowa (Polk County), where he had a poultry farm and was mayor of the town twice. His oldest brother Charles A. joined the cavalry about 1870, went out west to the New Mexico/Arizona territory where he was killed in by an Indian raiding party in 1871. Another brother George Washington became a railroad agent working in various places. He died in Pacific county, Washington in 1904. A third brother Theodore Parker stayed in the Dallas County, Iowa area and then moved to Ankeny, Polk County, Iowa. He was tall, over 6 feet 7 inches and very mechanically inclined. I know of two patents he received. One for something to do with boiler furnaces and another for a dolly for moving washing machines. He died in Ankeny, Iowa in 1942. The picture is of George Washington Weinhart.
