Bernard & Margaret married and settled around Birmingham Boro, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA by the 1860's. They would have married between 1856 and 1859. They were not married when each emigrated separately. Margaret may have emigrated with a husband possibly named Johann Kunkel on 15 Aug 1851.
Bernard's son, August, and Margaret's son, Adam, served in the PA 62nd Infantry Regiment Company B from 22 July 1861 to 13 July 1864, and mustered out in Pittsburgh during the Civil War.
August Pfleghar may have been married to Salome Hause (dau of Casper and Margaret Hause) and lived in Philadelphia, PA and Millville, NJ. This August states he emigrated in 1852 in the 1900 census and 1854 in the 1910 census. In census records his birth year ranges from 1842 to 1844 and he states he was born in Bavaria, Germany, and one son states Württemberg. August's occupation is listed as a Glass Blower or working for a Glass Factory. Margaret's son's, Adam & Conrad, also were Glass Blowers, and son, Michael also worked in a Glass House, as did Bernard & Margaret's son, Charles.
I descend from Margaret Kunkel's son, Adam, and would like to make contact with Kunkel's or Pfleghar's from this family to fill in both family's ancestry. Please feel free to contact me, if we could be related or if you think you may have an ancestor that fits with these 2 families.
