Catherine Klinger1

F, #238, d. before 1858
  • Last Edited: 30 Jun 2017
  • Catherine Klinger was the daughter of Johann Peter Klinger and Catharina Steinbruch.
  • Catherine Klinger married John Reifschneider.
  • Catherine Klinger died before 1858, PA.2
  • According to some sources, Catherine was mentioned in Peter's will, but apparently was deceased at that time. Apart from such references, there is virtually no information about Catherine. Some researchers appear to conflate this Catherine Klinger with the daughter of Peter Klinger (Jr.) and Catharine Wiest named Eva Catharina, who was baptized at Klinger's Church July 20, 1820 and who married Abraham Schwenk. Eva Catherine lived until 1887. The 1820 Census lists no female in the householde under the age of 10, suggesting that Peter and Catharina (Steinbruch) had no daughter then living born after 1810.2
