The Wolford Connection - John Wohlfart Sr's Will (Centre Co PA)

This is the John Wolford who I posted about before Philip. Spelling should have been Wohlford or Wohlfart.

Any of you who followed the Jerry Sandusky trial last week, caught glimpses of the beautiful courthouse where the trial was held in Bellefont PA. That is the same courthouse where brothers John and Philip filed their wills. I believe the older wills are now in the hands of the historical society.

John's children began the migration of Wohlfords. Kleckners and Snooks from Centre County PA to Knox Co. OH and Stephenson Co, IL and some other places. Philip's children were also in  this migration. The following is from John's will. Philip's will follow in the next post.

This is simply a list of his children and where they moved. If a town is not shown it is assumed they stayed in the Rebersburg Centre Co area.

John Jr. and wife Catherine Knox Co. OH

Michael and wife Ellen Knox Co OH

Philip Stephenson Co IL (about 1843)

Henry and wife Mary A. Nevada Co California

George and wife Priscilla (Stahl) Knox Co OH

Elizabeth wife of George Brungart


Sarah wife of Martin Brungart

If anyone is interested in any of these people I may be able to help you out.

In one of your posts you list Adam Brungart as Sarah's spouse, then the other post lists Martin Brungart as her spouse. Are they two men or is his name Adam Martin Brungart or Martin Adam Brungart?
