I can't find any connection for you with my Klingenbers who although military people, don't seem to have been in Germany. I am including a few notes that were written by my ancestors at the time, in case there are any names you recognise, as they might well be distantly related.
My father Anders Clausen Klingenberg was Paymaster in Trondheim (Norway). He first married Catherina, Bojes daughter, with whom he begot two sons and three daughters; when she died he remained a widower for two years, then he married my mother Cornelia Irgens with whom he begot no other children but me.
His father (born 1589) Claus Anderson Klingenberg, was judge in Lolland, and let my said father study. His teacher was the old guildsman of this place, Peter Dreyer; he came to the Academy when he was nineteen years of age; later on he was engaged as Gentleman-in-waiting at King Frederick 111 (Court), and from there was helped to the position of Paymaster in Trondheim. He died in Troldheim at the age of forty two. His mother's name was Christence Togswer................
My father was Johannes Klingenberg: he was Quartermaster and Judge Advocate (Regiments Kvartermaster and Auditor) at the North Norwegian Dragoon Regiment; the title of the first Judge Advocate was bestowed on him.
He was born in 1686 on the 6th of December. In 1722, the 1st November he married my mother Sara Arentz the daughter of Dean Hans Arentz of Stadsboygder and with whom he got three sons and six daughters of whom one son and two daughters died in their youth. He died at his country estate Sinsager on 1st March 1763 aged seventy eight years.
My mother Sara Arentz was born the 15th August 1701. She died at Sinsager the 12th June 1766, aged sixty five years.
I was born in Trondheim the 26th September 1723. In my youth I studied and was taught by my mother's brother Hans Arentz, later on Dean in Stavanger, and thereafter I joined the Senior Class of the Trondheim school, from where I was sent up by the famous headmaster Dalhberg M.A. in the year 1740 and in July the same year I matriculated. The following year I passed the exam of second degree (Filosopikum) with the highest marks. In the same year I went from Copenhagen to Bergen where I stayed at Aschevold with my mother's brother Fredrich Arentz who was later Bishop of Bergen.
In the year 1744 I went to my parents in the See of Trondheim where I remained until the year 1748, September 28th when I was placed as Quartermaster and Judge Advocate at the Trondheim National Infantry Regiment under the command of his Excellency Leutenant General Mangelsen. In the year 1756 on December 6th it pleased H.M. the King to bestow on me the title of First Judge Advocate and also to hold office on the Military Board. On the 19th April 1758 the title of General Judge Advocate was bestowed on me, and in the year 1765 I was made Judge Advocate of the Trondheim Fortresses and Quartermaster of Trondheim Garrison. In the the year 1769 on 19th January I was made a member of the Royal Norwegian Society of Science. In January 1773 I was made Director of the Thomas Angell Institution in Trondheim. In 1775 I got His Majesty's permission to depute my military posts at the Regiment to Johannes Finne, and my posts at the Trondheim Garrison to Councillor of War Hiort. In 1775 on 6th April the title of General Inspector of Recruitment was bestowed on me.
In the year 1761 I married Mrs. Maria Sophia Wilster, the widow of Leutenant-Colonel Hans Emaliasen Alberg. She was the daughter of Colonel Wilster and her mother was Maria Margrethe Emaliasen, the daughter of Major-General Emaliasen...................
