Salena:

The early Philhower's settled in Hunterdon, County, New Jersey - originally called German Valley because of the large number of Germans who settled on the farms there. Philip Jung "George" Philhower (Wulhauer in German) came over in Sept. 16, 1748 on the ship Patience. {Note: There are always slightly varying spellings of these names.} Because the Philhower's intermarried with other German families (Apgar, Huffman/Hoffman, Schuyler, Teats, Tiger/Tyger), many Philhower families migrated west to enable their children to marry other families, as well as to find better land and new opportunities.

There are many Philhower's still living in Hunterdon Cty. and there is a Philhower Reunion in September of each year. I attended the last one on Sept. 8.
