I am trying to make a connection between my grandfather, William Allan Wolfgang (married Emily Belle Hidinger), b. 6-22-1874 in Sigel, PA and his father, Jacob Wolfgang born in Clarion Co, PA c. 1844-45. Jacob was discharged from the Civil War in 1865 at age 20. My father, William Merle Wolfgang was born in Brookville in 1909. I can find several Jacobs and a couple of Williams of the proper ages in Berks and Clearfield Counties but cannot establish positively that one of these Jacobs is my great-grandfather.
