All of our research papers are continually being updated. They are all fully cited with source citations, end notes, and bibliographies.

Our mother was Dorothy Irene Klinger, and her parents were Edwin (Ed) Charles Klinger and Irene Mary Wrightstone.

Ed was born in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania to Charles Edwin Klinger (Jr.) and Emma Long Kitner. Ed’s father was the oldest child born to Charles Edwin Klinger (Sr.) and Melinda Jane Daniels. Charles E. Klinger Sr. was the 6th child born to John A. Klinger and Susanna Romberger.

John A. Klinger’s parents were Johann Philip Klinger (1792-1857) and Catherine Steinbruch. Philip’s family line can be traced to his grandfather, and our Colonial Klinger patriarch, Johann Phillip Klinger (1723-1811), whose family line dates to 16th century regions of Rielingshausen and Wüertenburg Germany.

Our Barr ( Bär) , Wrightstone ( Reichstein ), and Greenawalt ( Grünewald ) families are also from these regions of Old Germany.

Charles Edwin Klinger Jr. (1874-1927)

Charles Edwin Klinger Jr. was born on April 8th 1874 [1]  to Charles Klinger Sr. and Melinda Daniels in Lykens, Wiconisco Township in Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Charles was of medium height and build, with blue eyes and brown hair. On January 5th 1899, at age 24, Charles married 24 year old Emma Long Kinter[2]  The marriage was conducted by Alexander Lamberson in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. [3] 

Emma was also known as Emmy, and she was born March 17th 1873 [4]  to Andrew G. Kinter and Matilda Huss in Dillsburg York County Pennsylvania. Emma’s sister was Kate M. Kinter who married Charles’s younger brother Harry Victor Klinger in 1916.

Charles Edwin Klinger Jr. and Emma Long Kitner had six children.

i.    Ethel Laura Klinger (1900-1972) 

ii.   Edwin Charles Klinger (1903-1985) 

iii.  Helen M. Klinger (1906-1927)

iv.   Alma R. Klinger (1908-1994) 

v.    Pansey Ida Klinger (1912-2004) 

vi.   Clarence William Klinger (1914-1970) 

In 1900 Charles and Emma lived with his parents on Hanna Street in what is known today as Shipoke Area of South Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Some of this area is currently the front street on ramp and 2nd street off ramp interchange to Interstate 83.

By 1910 the family moved to 119 Vine Street, a few blocks north from Hanna Street, off South 2nd and South 3rd Streets. Charles Jr. and Emma were living with Emma’s father Andrew Kinter who is widowed at 60 years old.

Emma's sister, Kate Kinter, is also living with the family in 1910, and in 1916 Kate marries Harry Klinger, Charles's young brother. The Kitner family are from the Dillsburg area of York County Pennsylvania. We can only assume that Emma's father, Andrew, had some sort of relationship with Charles who was in the fruits and produce business.

According to the Klinger family, Charles at about 30 years old worked on the newly built Pennsylvania Capitol Building Dome. [5]  Construction of the Capitol building began with ground breaking on November 2nd 1902, and ending with its dedication on October 4th 1906. On Charles WWI Draft registration card, he indicated he was a produce dealer working for H. R. Whitcomb, located on Chestnut Street Market House, Harrisburg.

Between 1920 and 1927 Charles and Emma lived on South Court Street, further north from Vine Street. On October 6th 1927 [6]  at 9:25 P.M, at 53 years old, Charles E. Klinger Jr. died at the Policlinic Hospital Harrisburg Pennsylvania of pulmonary tuberculosis. That same year his daughter Helen M. Klinger died at 21 years old. They are both buried together in the Paxtang Cemetery Harrisburg PA, row 14, stone #7. [7]  The circumstances seem to reflect they both died at the exact same date, maybe having the same cause of death.

After 1927, Emma, Alma, Pansey, and Clarence began living with Emma’s oldest daughter, Ethel L. Stephens at 84 Luce Street Harrisburg. [8]  During Emma’s later years, along with her daughter Pansey, they worked for the McCormick’s at their 101 North Front Street Mansion in Harrisburg, living in the rear of the mansion as a domestic servant.

The last McCormick son to live at the mansion was Donald McCormick, who also served as president of Dauphin Deposit Bank. Upon Donald’s death in 1945, the house was willed to the Harrisburg Public Library. Emma left her employment and moved in with her youngest daughter Pansey and her husband Elmer Dorer. They lived at 2314 Berry Hill Street, Allison Hill Harrisburg Pennsylvania, until about the mid 1960’s when Emma moved into the Dauphin County Home. Emma died at the age of 98 [9]  in September 1971, [10]  while living in the Dauphin County Home in Swatara Township Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Emma was laid to rest in the Paxtang Cemetery Harrisburg Pennsylvania. [11] 

Ethel Laura Klinger (1900-1972)

Ethel Laura Klinger was born January 13th 1900 [12]  to Charles Klinger and Emma Kinter in Harrisburg Dauphin County Pennsylvania. On March 11thh 1919 in Harrisburg Pennsylvania at age 19 Ethel married 19 year old Henry Calvin Heider by Reverend G. E. Hawes. [13] 

Harry Calvin Heider was born August 4th 1899 in Fredrick Maryland. [14]  His father was Harry Heider who was born in Selinsgrove Snyder County Pennsylvania, and Lillie Catherine Hann who was born in Fredrick Maryland. In 1919 Harry Calvin Heider was a Machinist Helper for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and living in Harrisburg Pennsylvania with his parents. [15] 

For some reason in 1920, Ethel was married living with her parents Charles and Emma Klinger, and her husband Harry, who was also married and still working for the railroad was living with his parents, Harry and Katherine Heider. Ethel filed for divorce on grounds of dissertation. They were divorced in the Dauphin County Court during the January Term 1922, case number, 457-922. On February 24th 1923 Harry remarried to Katherine Sergeant in Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Katherine was born about 1905 to Archibald Sergeant and Katherine Hoffman. [16]  Harry and Ethel Klinger did not have any children.

On April 1st 1923, 23 year old Ethel Laura Klinger-Heider remarried to 25 year old Charles Edgar Stephens while they lived in Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Charles was born March 2nd 1898 [17]  to Jesse K Stephens and Bertha M Owens in Pennsylvania. [18]  Charles Jr. signed his WWI draft registration on September 12th 1918, and he identified Ethel L. Stephens as the person who will always know his address.

Charles Edgar Stephens and Ethel L. Klinger had five children.

i.    Charles E. Stephens was born in April 1926 in Pennsylvania.

ii.   Paul A. Stephens was born in April 1928 in Pennsylvania.

iii.  Vernon E. Stephens was born 1931 in Pennsylvania.

iv.   William A. Stephens was born in 1934.

v.    Robert Q. Stephens was born in 1937.

The family lived in the Boiling Springs area of South Middleton Township Cumberland County Pennsylvania. Ethel L. Stephens died March 24th 1972, and was laid to rest in the Westminster Memorial Gardens in Carlisle Pennsylvania. [19] 

Edwin Charles Klinger (1903-1985)

Edwin (Ed) Charles Klinger was born August 12th 1903 to Charles Klinger and Emma Kinter in Harrisburg Dauphin County Pennsylvania.

At age 23 Ed married 21 year old Irene Mary Wrightstone  [20]  on April 29th 1926 in Annville Pennsylvanian by Reverend Walter E. Waggoner. [21] 

On April 3rd 1930 Ed and Irene lived in Shiremanstown Borough Lower Allen Township Cumberland County Pennsylvania. At that time Ed work as a laborer in a brickyard. I recall driving with him, and he showed me the brickyard which was in ruins, and located at the intersection of present day Elmerton Avenue and PA State Route 22, adjacent to the Pennsylvania State Veterinarian Lab. Ed also worked as a Fruit and Produce Helper/Dealer with his father, a Milkman delivering milk, and a janitor for Wilcox Forging in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania.

During the mid to late 1930’s the family lived at 519 West Main Street Mechanicsburg. They moved and lived in the 1940’s to the early 1960’s at 18 South Chestnut Street Mechanicsburg. Then they moved from Chestnut Street to 2 Park Road, Silver Springs Township Cumberland County Pennsylvania; about one mile from Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania. They lived there the remaining years of their lives. Their son Russell lived with them until he died in 2008.

We remember Grandpa telling stories of his younger days, and his family. He told of how he and his dad had a fruit stand at the Broad Street market located on 3rd street in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. I recall him telling me how he traveled across the river to Camp Hill and New Cumberland buying produce to sell at the market.

This may be how Ed met his wife Irene Mary Wrightstone, who at this time was living on a farm in Lemoyne Borough, Lower Allen Township Cumberland County; directly across the Susquehanna River on either the Walnut Street or Market Street Bridges. Her father was a tenet farmer, and I suspect they either sold fruit or produce to Charles and Sons green grocers of the Shipoke area of Harrisburg. After he married Grandma, he delivered milk out along the Enola Road, Route 944.

Ed died August 12th 1985 at age of 83. His memorial service was held Friday, August 16th 1982, 1:30 P.M, at the Myers Funeral Home 37 East Main Street Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania. The Reverend Kraig L. Faust conducted the service. Ed was buried August 16th 1985 at Rolling Green Cemetery Camp Hill Cumberland County Pennsylvania. [22]

Her memorial service was on Tuesday, April 19th 1988 at the Myers Funeral Home in Mechanicsburg. The Reverend Paul F. Zeiber and Reverend Arthur (Fritz) Edmunds conducted services. (Arthur is Irene’s brother in law, her sister Julia’s husband.) Contributions could be made to her church; Mount Zion Church, 4685 Mount Zion Road Enola Pennsylvania. [37] Irene was laid to rest with her husband at the Rolling Green Cemetery, Camp Hill Lower Allen Twp Cumberland County Pennsylvania.
