Mabel was living in an Orphanage and Dennis was a Ward of the state
(Minnesota) in 1910 which makes sense with the passing of Mittie in 1908.
The 1910 census indicates that John was a widow and boarding in a home in
Hennepin, Minnesota. I am not sure what became of Marion, I did find a 1910
census for a Marion Winch that is residing in Plymouth, Hennepin, Minnesota
as a hired boy, but both parents are listed as being born in Ireland so I am
not sure of it's validity.
This might be Dennis Winch, son of John Winch.. jca
