I'd like to add my two cents worth--seeking information on relatives of Philip Jacob Klar who arrived in Dover, OH in 1844. He was married to Phoebe Huffman. They arrived with their seven children, John (1833-1915; married to Catharine Putt (1839-1916), Jacob (b. 1825; married to Deborah Mager in 1845), Abby, Bena, Margaret, Phoebe, and Kate (married to Peter J. Steitz). Philip Jacob secured a job working on the canals. He died of pneumonia in 1844, the same year he arrived in the U.S.
Also seeking information on the next generation of Klars (children and descendants of John Klar and Catharine Putt): Charles Conrad, William J., Callie, Ella, Edward, Albert B., Addison H., May, Curtis, Muriel I., and Emma.
