Kuhn family Northumberland, Union, Snyder County, PA
Posted by: Chris Kuhn (ID *****6208) Date: October 18, 2011 at 07:39:52
  of 1860

Looking for parents of my 5th Great Grandfather:

Jacob Kuhn
B. 7 August, 1775 Pennsylvania
D. 11 October, 1841 Pennsylvania


Catharine "Catarina?" maiden name unknown
B. 1776 at unknown locaiton
D. 1831 at Penns Creek/Centreville in Pennsylvania

Catharine's previous husband was William Weirick, with whom she bore one son before William's death: Henry Weirick.

Jacob must have married Catharine immediately after Weirick's death, as they are both listed in Henry's Orphan's Court proceedings around the late 1790's. Henry is listed as the "infant son", and Catharine is listed as "Catharine Khun (sometimes Kuhn, Khun, Khuns, Kuhns, etc.), wife of Jacob Kuhn, late of William Weirick."

Jacob and Catharine had two children I know of:

Barbara Kuhn, who married into the Swartzlander family of the area, and my 4th Gr. Grandfather:

William Kuhn
B. 20 August, 1801 (PA)
D. 13 September, 1870 (Indiana)

I cannot find ANY birth records at all for Jacob, or his son William. Census info shows both listing their birthplace(s) in Pennsylvania.

The family lived in Northumberland County, in the area known as Penns Creek. The Township's name was Centre, or Centerville. This area became part of Union County in the early 1800's, and then part of Snyder County a few decades later.

William and his wife (Also Catharine) moved to Kosciusco County, Indiana, sometime in the mid 1800's.

I have excellent census information on Jacob, but nothing on his parentage. I would also like to find Catharine's maiden name, prior to her marrying William Weirick.

I have detailed information from William down to me, with children, their wives and siblings, etc. My line went from IN., to Kentucky (Muhlenburg area) to Arkansas (Augusta, Woodruff County area).

I would be wiling to share any and all information I have, if it would help someone with their tree. The family name has been listed as: Kuhn, Kuhns, Kun, Kuns, Koon, Kuntz, Kune etc. etc.
