ObitJohn's obituary was published in the Jacksonville Daily Journal on 13 February 1918:
John Wingler, one of the oldest residents of Morgan county, passed away at the home of his son, Frank, six miles northeast of the city at 1 o'clock a.m., Feb. 8th, at the ripe age of 93 years, 2 months and 7 days. Perhaps he was the last survivor of the county of the Mexican war. He was a veteran also of the Civil War. John Wingler was born Dec. 1st , 1824, at Shippensburg, Penn. He was reared on the farm and followed that occupation all his long life with the exception of the enlistment in his country's service during the Mexican war in 1845 to '47, and in 1861 in Co. B, 54th Vol. Inf. Ohio, when he served three and a half years and was discharged because of ill health at the beginning of Sherman's march to the sea. He was in a number of the great battles in the Mississippi Valley, Chattanooga, and Atlanta. After returning home from Mexico he immigrated to Camden, Ohio, where he married Miss Nancy Odaffer. To this union five children were born, two girls and three boys. One, John, died in infancy. After the Civil war the family moved to Indiana, where they remained a few years and in 1871 came to the vicinity of Jacksonville. The wife and mother died in 1888 and a few years later the two daughters died within a month of each other. For seventeen years he has made his home with his son Frank and wife where he has received every care love could bestow upon him in his declining years. Many years ago he professed his faith in Christ and united with the Christian Church at Antioch, retaining his
membership until his death. In his declining years his faith grew stronger and he desired to go to that better home above. He leaves his son, George of the city and Frank, also fourteen grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren. The funeral services were held at Antioch church east of the city Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. G. T. Wetzel, and laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery beside his wife and children. A large circle of friends and neighbors being present.
