My wife's family is also Blough. What information I have is as follows:
In 1750, two brothers, Christian II and John Blough came to America from Switzerland. The immigrant list on file at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania shows the names of Christian and Hans (John) Blough sailed from Rotterdam on November 3, 1750 on the ship Brotherhood. The ship was commanded by Captain John Thompson. They arrived in Philadelphia late in December 1750. The located in Lancaster County, in the eastern part of PA. Christian was born in 1743 and came to America with his parents (Christian I), brothers and sisters and uncle's family. Christian II also served in the American Revolutionary Army. In 1767, Christain Blough II married Magdaline Bender in Lancaster County, PA. They eventually moved to the wild country of eastern PA in Somerset County, near Johnstown or near a small place called Berlin. He was the father of eight children. The two known ones are Henry and Peter, twin boys born in 1771 near Johnstown or Berlin, about 100 miles SW of Fort Duquesne, now Pittsburg. Peter Blough I was married to Martha Yoder. To this union was born seven children, four boys and three girls. The oldest son, Peter II, was born, reared and died in Pennsylvania. The other six children emigrated to Indiana. Peter Blough I's children were as follows: Peter Blough II, David Blough, Noah Blough, Martha Blough-Mishler, Sarah Blough-Kime, Charity Blough-Burkey, and Christian Blough III.
