  • Elizabeth Klinger was born on 23 May 1835, Lykens Township, Dauphin County, PA.1
  • She was the daughter of Johann George Klinger and Elizabeth Stein.
  • Elizabeth Klinger was baptized on 16 August 1835, Zion (Klinger's) Church, Erdman, Lykens Township, Dauphin County, PA, The sponsors were Johannes Stein and wife Catharina.1
  • Some sources list Elizabeth's maiden name as Elizabeth Scheddel, while others, including Mary Klinger, give her name as Elizabeth Klinger. Sme sources list her as a daughter of John Klinger and Sarah Buffington, who, on April 16, 1835, did baptize at Klinger's Church a daughter named Elizabeth, born 29 December 1834. According to Mary Klinger, however, this John Klinger, however, was apparently born in 1824. From the records at Klinger's Church, where Elizabeth and Henry are buried, it is clear that her first name was "Elizabeth" and that she was born c. 23 May 1835. In light of that, it seems unlikely that John Klinger and Sara Buffington were her parents, since he would only have been about 11 years old in 1835.2,3
  • She married Henry Wiest Strohecker, son of William Strohecker and Sarah Wiest, circa 1855.4
  • Elizabeth Klinger died on 25 November 1909, Lykens Township, Dauphin County, PA, at age 74.5,6
