The marriage of Henry K. Klugh, Jr. to Elizabeth R. Manning was by Rev. J.J. Strine on Sept. 6, 1860.The use of Elizabeth's maiden name appears to be used as the middle name for their sons.
Christian was the oldest of the children being born 3 months after the marriage of his parents.
Elizabeth and and her husband, Henry, are buried in Millersville Mennonite Cemetery.Elizabeth died Feb. 28, 1921, and Henry deid March 6, 1914.
When I state Mt. Joy, I most likely meant to say Manor Township.I wrote before I looked!!
I have been searching under the assumption that Henry K. Klugh, Sr. would be Henry, Jr.'s father.And I have been finding information (Bridgens 1864) about a Jacob Klugh to kept a tavern on the Lancaster side of Mountville on the Lancaster & Columbia Turnpike in W. Hempfield Township.I believe this was the Black Bear Tavern described as 4 1/2 miles east from columbia on that turnpike.In that same line was the statement that Mrs. Klugh was the sister of Abraham Peters.
And then I have Gottfried Klug as the father of Jacob Klugh.
My weak link is Henry K., Jr. to Jacob.
Any ideas?Thank you for reading this and responding.
