Jacob Brungart Biography

Jacob Brungart, second son of Martin, lived on the farm now owned by his son Samuel. He was drafted in 1813, but, being so situated that he could not go to the army unless at a great sacrifice financially, he made a contract with William P. Brady, then residing at Aaronsburg, to go as a substitute. Mr. Brungart paid Brady sixty dollars, and presented him with a pair of shoes.

Jacob Brungart was born Jan. 15, 1786, died Sept. 5, 1862.

He had six sons,- John, George, Jacob, Frederick, Martin, and Samuel; the first three named are dead.   There were six daughters, Mary, married to John Heckman; Susan, wife of John Weaver; Catharine, wife of Adam Bear, Rebersburg; Margaret, married to Jacob Smeltzer; Regina, married to John Schaeffer; and Sarah, wife of William Johnson. All are living except Margaret.
