The Wolford Connection - Philip Wohlford's will ( Clinton Co PA )

The following is from the will of Philip Wohlford, son of the previous  Philip who moved over the mountain to Sugar Valley in Clinton Co PA where he lived outside Loganton. He and his wife are buried in the cemetery behind what had been the Lutheran Church. Loganton suffered a disastrous fire in 1917 and half of the town was destroyed including the original Lutheran Church. A bank occupies that spot today. The Lutheran Church rebuilt caty cornered across the intersection from the original site. My great grandfather, Charles Calvin Bartels,  was the minister there in 1872. He left the Lutheran Church in 1873 and was ordained in the Church of God which had been founded by John Winebrenner. He remained a Church of God minister for the rest of his life.

Philip Wohlford was married to Sophia Snook daughter of Mathias Snook and Maria Christina Kleckner.

His son George of Miles Twp Centre Co, is my Great Great Grandfather, so Philip and Sophia (Snook) Wohlford are both of our common ancestors.
