The BRUNGART Family


This column is part of a feature series which focuses on a different Centre County family each week. Five new columns will be released each month unless some technical difficulty enters the picture.

This column's focus is on Brungart. An effort has been made to identify all persons carrying that name in the 1890 U.S. Census, using the Centre County business directory which was formed from a preliminary review of that census before the larger set of 1890 U.S. Census records was destroyed by fire. (Sadly, the postal directory does not typically provide the ages of females, but it's the best record we've got).

There is one book in the Pennsylvania Room of the Centre County Library in Bellefonte that deals in part with the Brungart family. It is Vera Catherine Brungart's and Jasper Royer Brungart's History and Genealogy of the Brungart Family (19--).

There are 27 first-name entries for Brumgard, Brumgart and Brungart in John Blair Linn's History of Centre and Clinton County (1883). In addition, there are several mentions of the name in Beers' Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania (1898), with five persons having full-length biographical profiles: Henry A. Brumgard (b., 1843, s/o Martin and Sarah Wholford); Samuel Brungard (b. 1844, s/o George and Elizabeth Wohlford); Daniel Brungart (b. 1823, s/o George and Salome Kahl); Frederick Brungart (b. 1817, s/o Jacob and Margaret Gephart); and, Thomas F. Brungart (b. 1849, s/o Samuel and Harriet Walker).

And, now, your ancestors' Brungart neighbors in 1890:
