The great grandparents of the Prugh family in America were born in Prussia, Germany.  They immigrated to this country about the year 1725, and landed in Philadelphia.  Like many immigrants at that time, they were obliged to sell themselves to the shipmaster to defray the expenses of their passage from the old world to the new. Upon arriving at Philadelphia they were sold as servants to liquidate the expense attending their transportation.  They settled in Trappe, Pennsylvania.  Nothing at all is known of the ancestry of these first parents.  The only child of this union, so far as is known, was named Conrad; and he stands on record as the honored paternal ancestor of the whole Prugh connection in America.  

He was born in 1742 and married Lucy Marie Finkeheiner.  Soon after their marriage, they moved to Frederick County, Maryland.  To this happy couple were born 16 children, 8 sons and 8 daughters.  

Information is provided on each of the children, their names, birth dates, marriage info, and more.  John Prugh, the 13th child of Conrad and Lucy, was born in 1795 and had 10 children, including Peter Prugh.  

Peter Prugh was born in 1822, the fourth of a famiiy of 9 sons and 1 daughter.   Peter grew up to be a schoolmaster at an early age, then went to college and studied to be a minister and was ordained in 1851.  

10 chapters cover his early life;  his marriage,his wife’s ancestors;  life and labor in Xenia, Cincinnati and Germantown, Ohio; But,er, Pennsylvania, moving to California, and his death.    The final chapter contains Notes on the Civil War, (a diary kept by Rev. P. C. Prugh during his service in the Civil War.)

Thirty photographs enhance the text.
