Some Paternal Ancestors of Edwin Brown (“Big Doc”) KUGLER Sr

Jonathan RITTENHOUSE (1770–1846) 1

Jonathan was born and died in Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon Co, NJ. There he married (1796) Delilah Bray (1777–1858). They had the following children—Mary, Eliza, Susan, Huldah, Watson, Mahala, Delilah, Wilson, and Daniel Bray Rittenhouse. Both Jonathan and Delilah are buried at Rosemont, Kingwood Twp. For several years before Jonathan’s death, his young grandson, John Kugler (brother of Big Doc's grandfather and later to be a judge), helped him operate his farm.2

A few of the sources I consulted list Eliza as one of Jonathan’s children, but most have an Elijah, born in 1802. I think Elijah must be a misreading of Eliza. But there was at least one other Rittenhouse family that did have an Elijah.
