I am looking for information on the parents and siblings of Lorenzo D. Krieger (1830-1903).  Lorenzo married Henrietta "Harriet" Weaver (1832-1912).  Lorenzo and his wife appear as a newly married couple in the 1850 census for Hopewell Township, Huntingdon Co., PA.  I do have information on their children that I will gladly share.  I would like to match Lorenzo up with his parents and siblings.

I'm not sure this is helpful, but I list an Elizabeth Krieger (alt. name Elizabeth Kinger) born 19 Dec 1827 in Pennsylvania.  She married Joseph Detwiler (1827-1905)


JOSEPH DETWILER, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. T. A. Miller, of Entriken, on Tuesday morning, Jan. 24, of nervous prostration. Deceased was aged 78 years and was highly esteemed in the community in which he lived. He is survived by these children: George and Mrs. Mary J. Rhodes, of Altoona; Mrs. T. A. Miller, Mrs. Davis Enyeart and Mrs. John Richardson, of Entriken; Mrs. H. A. Stinson, of Saxton, and Samuel, of Grafton. The funeral took place at Entriken yesterday.

Jim, that is really interesting.  Elizabeth could be Lorenzo's sister if she really is indeed a Krieger.  Any idea where she was born or where her family lived?  She and Joseph are both buried in the Entriken Cemetery.  Lorenzo and his family always lived in Lincoln Township, but I think he is buried in one of the Russellville cemeteries.  There was a William Krieger living in very close proximity in one of the census reports that I suspect is probably a brother.  I'll have to go back and look for Elizabeth and Joseph now and see if they were close by as well.
