Philip Jacob Ohlegschlager (1820 - 1908)
Elizabeth Gould Ohlegschlager (1833 - 1909)
The Ohlegschlagers are not a blood line to me. However, Philip Adam Ohlegschlager adopted my father and was the only grandfather I knew from my father's family. To me the Ohlegschlagers were my aunts, uncles, and cousins.
1895 Oregon Census-Multnomah Co-Jacob Ohlegschlager
This census is in alpha order so we can’t identify the neighbors.
The spelling is Ohlegschlager.
Jacob is a legal voter, a male of 50 years and upward, and foreign born. I believe that a man must be a citizen to be a legal voter. Further searching in Multnomah Co might uncover citizenship application and documents.
Elizabeth is a female of 18 years and upward and foreign born and being female would not be a legal voter at that time period.
Adam is a legal voter, a male under 45 and over 21, and of foreign birth.
Also listed is John, a male under 18 and over 12, born US of A. I believe that this John is a grandson of Jacob and Elizabeth. There is some evidence the Jacob and Elizabeth’s oldest son John had a son by the name of John.
