Peter Winebrenner was born in Ohio. His parents were one of the first families to move to Wolflake, Noble county, Indiana, in 1837. He was ordained as a minister in the Christian Church, and served in the Eel River Conference. He was a circuit rider for Noble county, and parts of neighboring counties, preaching in the various churches there, conducting marriages, funeral services, etc. In 1887, he was elected to the Indiana State conference of Christian Missions. [1] He was married 3 times, having a number of children from the first two wives. He left a collection of diaries, that mostly told about his daily life. There were a lot of preachers in Peter's family. His grandfather, Johann Christian Winebrenner, was a preacher in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania. His uncle, Christian Winebrenner, was also a preacher. His cousin, John Winebrenner was a preacher in the German reformed church. They kicked him out, so he started the Church of God. Peter's grandson, George Stoner, was also an ordained minister in the Christian Church, but taught school for a living, and only occasionally preached on special occasions. Peter Winebrenner is buried at Merriam Christian Chapel cemetery, Noble, Indiana
