Elisabeth Junghen


Elisabeth's grave marker in German, 1797

Elisabeth Junghen was born on June 21, 1789 in Bucks County, the daughter of Rudolph "Ralph" and Elizabeth (Hockman) Junghen.

Her grandmother, the widow Elizabeth Hockman, was her sponsor at the christening held at Keller's Church on Aug. 29, 1789.

The girl spent her early years on her parents' farm in Bedminster Township, Bucks County.

Sadly, at the age of seven years, six months and 17 days, Elisabeth passed away in Bedminster Township.

Her remains were placed into repose directly beside her grandfather Johannes “Heinrich” Junghen at Keller’s Church.

Her stone stands erect and legible today. It is inscribed: “Hier Ruhan Die Bebeine Des Ver Storbene Elisabeth Jungken. In Sie Ist Gebohren Im Uahr 1789 Den 21 Julius und 1 Gestoben Den 8 Jenuaruis im iahr 1797.”
