Assorted Clingerman Data

Updated April 16, 2003

Eclectic Collection of Clingerman Data: Caveat Lector!

I have amassed this treasure from many sources: the census, IGI, WFT submissions, all the CDroms I can catch, e-mails from distant cousins, two trips to Obergimpern, two to Ohio and Indiana, one to Pennsylvania, many to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I have more data but lack the time to type it in.

Please do not consider this as proven data. Almost every fact I have found can be questioned: tombstones might not agree with the census or death certificate. This is a construction zone and the standards are not those I would use if I were publishing a book. I'm not trying for proof beyond a reasonable doubt, just a reasonable possibility. For instance, one of those listed is Frank Clingerman. Due to his age, location, and the nearby presence of Franklan Clingerman's brother, I assumed he was Franklan. Don't bank on it, it's just a reasonable assumption. I consider the entire database to be a jigsaw puzzle. I find one piece, see if it fits, try another: I want to see them all spread out before me. Sooner or later, either something fits or I shuffle and start over. I do have sources and I'm happy to share.

  • Cornelius Klingman, Revolutionary (19 KB)
    Excerpt from Soldiers of the American Revolution from Northampton/Lehigh Co PA
  • Neckarbishofsheim (833 KB)
    Left: city wall on north side Top: town square bottom: main street headed south
  • Obergimpern (748 KB)
    I sent a sergeant with a camera and this is what I got. The motif in the balcony should be the local noble's crest.
  • Georg Klingmann's Marriage etc. (267 KB)
    Page 208, Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Kraichgau
  • Klingenberg (451 KB)
    A bit to the south of Obergimpern is the village of Klingenberg, irresisible namewise. My photographer was supposed to take pictures of the oldest buildings: he said there were no old buildings, but then, his interests were confined to ruined schlosses.
  • Villages of the Northern Kraichgau (237 KB)
    Map from Page 12, Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Kraichgau
  • Church at Bad Rappenau (846 KB)
    Unless the photographer was lost, this is the church at Bad Rappenau. There is a wonderful custom in Germany, Switzerland, and possibly other places I haven't visited, of building old tombstones of nobles and clergy into the church walls. I'm sure the wonderful helms have a story to tell but I couldn't find any for sale.
  • Index to map of Northern Kraichgau (161 KB)
    Bottom of page 12, Eighteenth Century Emigrants from the Northern Kraichgau
  • Evangelical Church at Neckarbishofsheim (296 KB)
    Due to my poor photographic skills, you will have to go there to see the inside. Wonderful!
  • Schloss and Tower?, Bad Rappenau (444 KB)
    Post cards, no copyright found. I didn't figure out what the tower was for.
  • Bad Rappenau (217 KB)
    Hotel post cards, no copyright found
  • Evangelical Church at Bad Rappenau (209 KB)
    Post card, no copyright found
  • Title page, Rev. War Soldiers (56 KB)
    Revolutionary War Soldiers of Northampton/Lehigh County PA
