There is also a sympathy card from Mrs. L. Literski and Family and Louis Winkelbauer and John C. G????? offering 5 masses for the repose of the soul of Theresa Winklebauer at St. Agnes church in St. Paul. Minnesota. 

This is the first connection I have found that links the Winkelbauer family to St. Agnes church. I could not find them listed in a census for the church from 1887. This is the church that most of the German-Bohemians attended in St. Paul, MN.
