General Notes for Child Albert Dinkel

History of Clay County, Indiana
W. M. Travis, 1909.


"In the operation of his extensive florist business Albert Dinkel, of Brazil, combines fine executive qualities with a scientific knowledge of his avocation and an enthusiastic love of flowers--the last named trait having a not unimportant bearing on the successful cultivation of all forms of plant life. Perhaps this trait was inherited, the other elements of his skill and efficiency coming as the result of long experience and close application to the mastery of the smallest detail of the business. He was born in Pennsylvania, on the 31st of March, 1859, and when he was six years of age the family came from the Keystone state to Terre Haute, Indiana, where the father passed many years as a butcher and gardener, and died June 18, 1908. Early in his boyhood Albert worked for his brother George in a nail factory, assisting his father also in his gardening. The latter feature of the business proved so agreeable to him that he decided to learn the florist's business, his first experience of two years being with Lawrence Heinl, of Terre Haute, after which he was identified with John Heinl, in the same line, until May, 1891. The latter date marks the coming of Mr. Dinkel to Brazil, and the establishment there of an independent and flourishing business. His plant is now the finest in county, and is the only one in this section of the state that has 12,000 square feet of light. His home trade is large and supported by the most substantial people of the community, and he also ships quite an amount of plants and cut flowers, as well as floral designs. Connected with his establishment is a heating plant of such capacity that it supplies heat for two blocks of store rooms and offices. Mr. Dinkel's first stand was on the site of the public library in a building forty-eight by sixteen feet, and this was the headquarters of his business until 1901, when he bought the property which he now occupies at No. 25 North Walnut street. In politics Mr. Dinkel is a firm Democrat, and his popularity and good business qualities were recognized in November, 1904, by his election to the office of city and township assessor. His also widely known as an active participant in the work of the fraternal and benevolent orders, holding membership in the following: Centennial Lodge, No. 541, F. & A. M.; Brazil Lodge, No. 30, Knights of Pythias, Uniform Rank, No. 39; Lodge No. 3418, M. W. of A.; Brazil Lodge, No. 762, B.P.O.E.; and Order of Home Defenders of America, No. 1.


William and Martha (Schenberger) Dinkel were the parents of Albert, the former born in Germany, in 1829, and the mother in Pennsylvania, in 1827. She survives her husband, who died in 1908, and now lives in Terre Haute, spending her declining years in an honorable and comfortable retirement. William Dinkel emigrated to America when he was fifteen years of age, coming hither with his parents on a vessel which made the ocean trip in thirty-one days. From New York City the family removed to Pennsylvania, where William married Martha Schenberger, and where four children were born, of whom those still alive are: George, William and Albert, of this sketch. In 1865 the parents brought their family to Indiana, locating in Terre Haute on April 15th of that year. There the father established himself as a butcher and gardener, purchasing as a homestead and business site a tract of ten acres on East College street. At this location he continued to rear his family in ways of honor and thrift, and engaged in active business until his retirement in 1905. Both he and his wife were staunch German Lutherans, and he himself always cast his vote for the Democracy. Albert Dinkel married Miss Emma J. Montgomery, on the 13th of October, 1880, his wife being a native of Marshall county, Illinois, where she was born in November, 1859. She is a daughter of Alexander and Amanda (Summerville) Montgomery and is the youngest of three children. The others of the family are Melissa, who married John Van Sickle, and S. Frank, who is a school teacher in Brazil. Mr. and Mrs. Albert Dinkel are the parents of the following: Frances, wife of Fred Weaver, of Brazil; Ruby, Alberta and Albert Reese."
