I'm seeking information on my g.g.g. grandfather William [Wilhelm] KRIEGBAUM / KRIEGHBAUM / KRIECHBAUM, etc. on the spellings. He was born in the 1770's in Berks Co, Pa. and died ca 1866 in Bedford Co, Pa.
William KRIEGBAUM married Christina DERRY / DEWEY [not sure of her maiden name] before the 1800 Census inCentre Co, Pa.
William GRUBUM [Believe me, this is the spelling and this is my ancestor!]was found living in Haines Twp., Centre Co. in 1800. His cousin,JOHN GREABON[Yes, that's the spelling!], who married Maria Elizabeth EMMET, was listed on the same page as my ancestorin the Census of 1800,p. 814 in Haines Twp., Centre Co., Pa.
In 1807 WILLIAM KRIEGBAUMmoved with his wife and four children to Bedford Co., Pa. Children: DAVID b. 1801 JACOB b. 1802 m. Eliza KORBY MARIA MAGDALENA b. 1803 m. George WOLF JOHANNES b. 1805.
William & Christina'sdaughter SARAH b.1808 in Bedford Co, Pa. m.Levi AGNEW.
William KRIEGBAUM /KRIECHBAUM's parentage is unknown,but ancestors from Bedford Co,were told his father's name was ADAM KRIEGBAUM.
Johann ADAM KRIEGBAUM born:07 Oct 1750 married:Margaret Barbara GERMAN in 1775.He was the s/o Johann Wilhelm KRIEGBAUM, the immigrant,& Anna Barbara RETTIG.
I believe my g.g.g grandfather WILLIAM [Wilhelm] KRIEGBAUMis the s/o ADAM KRIEGBAUM, whose wife was Margaret Barbara GERMAN. They were living in Pine Grove Twp., Berks Co, Pa.in the 1790 & 1800 Census and Adam's will is recorded in Pine Grove Twp., Berks Co. Pa. Johann ADAM'sson JOHANN WILLIAMmwas born 05 July 1778 and was baptized at the Altalaha Evangelical Lutheran Church at Rehrersberg, Berks Co, Pa.
Johann Wilhelm KRIEGBAUM, b. 1778was not living with his parents in the 1800 Census in Pine Grove Twp., Berks County, Pa.,nor could I find him living in theCensus of 1810 in Pine Grove Twp. Berks or in 1820 in Pine Grove Twp.,Schuykill Co., Pa.
JOHN WILLIAM's two brothers, JOHN GEORGE and JOHN ADAMremained in Pine Grove Twp. until the 1820 Census.I could not find John ADAM and John GEORGE in 1830.In 1840 & 1850, Johann Wilehlm'sbrother JOHN ADAM was living in Perry Twp., Union Co., Pa.
What happened to JOHANN WILHELM s/o JOHN ADAM and Margaret Barbara GERMAN?? Is my g.g.g. grandfather William [Wilhelm]KRIECHBAUM, KRIEGBAUMthe s/o Johann ADAM & Margaret Barbara GERMAN??
If anyone has any information what happened to JOHANN WILHELM b. 5 July 1778 s/oof JOHANN ADAM RKIEGBAUM & Margaret Barbara GERMAN afterthe death of JOHANN ADAM KRIEGBAUM in 1801, I'd appreciate a reply.
