  Phony Benoni: The death date, at least, is incorrect. HEre is an except from an article in the <Bremen [Indiana] Enquirer>, February 6, 1953:

<"John Winter of Chicago, who has four times won the city championship in chess tournaments of the Chicago Chess and Checker Club, was the guest of U. J. Dietrich. last week, returning home Monday.. Thursday night Mr. Dietrich gave devotees of the game in Bremen and Napoleon a treat in the way of an oyster supper following an evening of of chess at the Star restaurant. Mr. Winter showed wonderful activity, playing several games against local players simultaneously, giving all of them large handicaps and winning five, losing one, and drawing one. He also played a number of match games with Mr. Dietrich and others during his stay....">

If the 1874 birth date is tied to the person who died in 1950, it is likely incorrect as well.

Santasiere, annotating the game J Winter vs Santasiere, 1937 (Chess Review, October 1937, p.227) states that Winter was 75 years old at the time, indicating a birthdate of 1861/1862. That statement may not be completely accurate, but probably provides at least a ballpark figure.
