Israel Klinger

M, #6548, b. 1878, d. 1879
  • Last Edited: 11 Dec 2018
  • Israel Klinger was born in 1878.
  • He was the son of Emanuel T. Klinger and Lovina Radel.
  • Israel Klinger died in 1879.1
  • There is a conflict among the sources concerning the parentage of Israel. Some sources suggest that he was the son of Elias Klinger and Elizabeth Bush, while others suggest that he was the son of Elias's son Emanuel Klinger and Lavina Radel. Israel is buried close to Elias Klinger in the Grandview Cemetery in Pillow in Dauphin County, close to where Elias lived, while Emanuel lived in Lower Mahanoy Township of Northumberland County, in the vicinity of Dalmatia. A letter written by Forrest Eugene Klinger, to his daughter Joan, concerning a visit to the cemetery, states: "[i]n the Klinger plot in Pillow ... is ... my Dad's infant brother, Israel, 1878-79. I was amused to see that the small gravestone on the latter grave read "Israel, son of E. and Lovina Klinger."
    Supporting the conclusion that Israel was the son of Emanuel and Lovina is that the 1900 Census indicates that Lovina had given birth to 9 children, 8 of whom were then living. No other children of Emanuel and Lovina, other than Israel, are known to have died before 1900.1,2,3,4

David B. Klinger1,2,3

M, #6551, b. October 1860, d. 1953
  • Last Edited: 7 Jan 2018
  • David B. Klinger was born in October 1860.4,2
  • He was the son of Elias Klinger and Elizabeth Bush.2
  • David B. Klinger married Mary J. (?) circa 1885.4
  • At the time of the 1900 Census, David was living in Washington, DC, with his wife Mary and two daughters. David was a clerk. He and Mary had been married about 15 years and had given birth to 2 children. David and Mary must have moved to Washington sometime between the birth of their 2 daughters, or between about 1886 and 1893.4
  • In 1910, David and Mary were living on 12th Street in the District with their 2 daughters, Maude and Blanche. They had been married 25 years and had given birth to 2 children. David was working as a clerk at a "Pension Office."1
  • The 1920 Census lists David as "married," but his household on 12th Street, NE, included only his 2 daughters, both of whom were single. Blanche, the younger daughter, was working as a stenographer. It is possible that David's wife died before 1920.5
  • By 1930, David was widowed and living with his daughter Maude, who was single. He was working as a clerk for US Government.6
  • David B. Klinger died in 1953.7
  • He may have been buried at Union Cemetery, Pillow, Jordan Township, Dauphin County, PA. The published listings for the Union Cemetery in Pillow include a "David B. Klinger" (1860 - 1953) and his wife "M. Jane" (1864 - 1919). The birth dates and the death date of Mary Jane are consistent with the Census records. In addition, the cemetery listings include listings for what appear to be David's two daughters, Maude and Blanche.8
  • According to Otto and Joan (Klinger) Crumroy, David Klinger did research on his branch of the Klinger family tree. He did so in cooperation with Earl Klinger, who had been on the faculty of Purdue University and collected considerable information about the Klinger family. David Klinger worked in Washington D.C., Department of Interior, and later, Pensions. In the 1970's Forrest Eugene Klinger, Sr. went to Pillow and Klingerstown looking for family history and discovered that his Uncle J. Arthur Klinger was still alive. Forrest Eugene wrote to J. Arthur with a number of questions about the family history. J. Arthur answered his questions and sent him the material that Earl Klinger and David Klinger had gathered. Later, Forrest Eugene Klinger, Sr. passed the data on to Joan Ross Klinger Crumroy, his oldest child.3

Lucia Klinger

F, #6553, b. circa 1859, d. 1929
  • Last Edited: 14 Jul 2010
  • Lucia Klinger is also referred to as Lucy in some sources.
  • She was born circa 1859.2
  • She was the daughter of Elias Klinger and Elizabeth Bush.1
  • Some sources record that Lucia Klinger was born in 1850.3,4
  • She died in 1929.3
  • The 1900 Census for Uniontown (Pillow), Dauphin County, PA, lists a Lucy A. Seaman, born January 1859, as wife in a household headed by Jeremiah Seaman, born August 1866. They were married circa 1893 had 2 children, Charles, born July 1895, and Mary, born February 1899. In 1910, "Jerry" and Lucy were lodging in a household headed by a widow Sarah Moyer, age 75. According to the Census, Jerry and Lucy had given birth to 1 child. The 1920 Census apparently lists this couple as "Jerry" and "Lizzie" Seaman. In 1930, "Jerry" was widowed and living on Market Street in Pillow. This is consistent with the evidence suggesting that Lucy died in 1929. These listings appear to be for the only Lucy or Lucia Seaman in the Uniontown (Pillow) area. The Census records generally suggest that she was born in 1859. While this is not consistent with the burial listing for a Lucy A. Seaman (1850 - 1929) at Grandview Cemetery in Pillow, it appears to be more consistent with the birth dates of the other children of Elias Klinger.2,5,6,7
  • She may have been buried at Grandview Cemetery, Pillow, Dauphin County, PA. There is a burial listing at the Grandview Cemetery in Pillow for a "Lucy A. Seaman," born in 1850 and died in 1929. It is possible that this is the daughter of Elias Klinger. This may be the same person as Emanuel's daughter Louisan listed in the 1860 Census.3

    F. Eugene Klinger Sr.
    Retired Educator
    F. Eugene (Gene) Klinger Sr. died Wednesday, September 3, 1997 at Holy Redeemer Hospital, Meadowbrook.
    Born in Renova, Pa. in 1905, he was the son of the late Harry and Harriet Rhoades Klinger.
    He was a 1922 graduate of Williamsport High School and a 1927 graduate of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa. He also had graduate courses in administration at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University.

    There was only a two year high school and Mr Klinger was the leader in the movement to bring a graduating high school to Southampton. In 1930, construction began, and in 1932, the first class graduated from Upper Southampton High School.
    Mr Klinger submerged himself in every aspect of the development of the school including writing the Alma Mater. He involved himself in the workings of the Upper Southampton School District so that his duties could best be described as a way of life. He substituted in any aspect, including driving the school bus and stoking coal fired boilers during World War II.
    His total involvement won him the total respect of both students and subordinates. The Eugene Klinger Junior High School was so named in his honor and dedicated in 1965. It has been renamed the Eugene Klinger Middle School.
    Mr Klinger received the Man of the Year Award from the Huntingdon Valley Rotary Club in 1973 and the Distinguished Citizens Award from the Southampton Businessmen's Association in 1993.

    Mr Klinger was a member of the North and Southampton Reformed Church and served as Treasurer for 22 years, was a Deacon, an Elder, and served as a member of the General Synod Executive Committee of the Reformed Church in America for four years.
    He was involved with Cub Scout Pack 28, the Park and Recreation Board, the House Numbering Committee, the Fourth of July Committe[e], serving as treasurer for eight years (now Southampton Days), as interlocutor for the Southampton Minstrels for nine years, and with the cancer society.
    Husband of the late Ethel R. Klinger and father of the late F. Eugene Klinger Jr. (Chip), he is survived by his wife of 35 years, Jean Lachman Klinger; two daughters and sons-in-law, Joan and Otto Crumroy of Duncanville, Texas and Barbara and Kenneth Nelson of Scotia, N.Y; daughter-in-law, Freda Khnger of Warminster; stepdaughter, Mary and her husband, Joseph Gallagher of Southampton; one sister, Ellen Wright of Montoursville, Pa; 14 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
    Relatives and friends are invited to attend his memorial service on Monday at 7 p.m. in the North and Southampton Reformed Church, 1380 Bristol Rd., Churchville and will be received by the family after the service. Interment is private.

  • Jacob E. Klinger married Sarah A. Reed, daughter of Abraham Reed and Sarah Harner.4
  • Jacob was a private in Company D, Pennsylvania 172nd Volunteers. He was mustered out on 1 Aug 1863 at Harrisburg, PA.5
