Fun Fact About David Wiltrout and his son, Charles Wiltrout

  David Wiltrout was born in 1803 at Port Clinton, and died a young man in Orwigsburg, in 1835. His vocation was that of a manufacturer of linens. He was united in marriage to Maria Hoy, daughter of Philip Hoy, a native of Berks county, but a pioneer settler, near Orwigsburg, this county, where he spent his days engaged in the avocation of a farmer. He was personally acquainted with Daniel Boone, the great hunter and Indian fighter of the 'Dark and Bloody Ground,' and served under 'Mad' Anthony Wayne, when that illustrious and valiant fighter was sent in 1794 to quell the Indians of the Northwest.

To this union were born four sons and one daughter; three of the sons are deceased; the daughter, Hannah, became the wife of Carl Yeakel, of Orwigsburg, this county.

Charles Wiltrout, after receiving a common school education in the schools of Orwigsburg, went in the autumn of 1845 to Schuylkill  Haven, to learn the trade of a tailor. After thoroughly mastering the details of the trade, he is 1851, established a merchant tailoring business, which he has faithfully and successfully pursued to the present time. He is a republican in politics, but has never sought office, but being one of the older residents of Schuylkill Haven, he has been frequently called to the offices of its municipal governments, and has served his people as school director, member of the council, burgess and assessor, and always with entire satisfaction to his constituents and credit to himself. Church work finds in him a hearty supporter and ready sympathizer, and is a liberal contributor to the Trinity Evangelical church, of which he is a trustee.

Mr. Wiltrout has been twice married, first in April 1852, to Elizabeth Wildermuth, which union resulted in four children: Clara L., who married Dr. J. H. Wingender, of Hudson, Wisconsin; Kate, who became the wife of George F. Dengler, the present postmaster of Schuylkill Haven; Dr. Irving D., who was graduated from Jefferson Medical college in the class of 1877, located in Hudson, Wisconsin, where he is proprietor, of a Sanitarium, and is a very successful practitioner of medicine, and Ella R., wife of Philip S. Kinports, who is a druggist of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Elizabeth Wildermuth Wiltrout, died June 18, 1886, and Mr. Wiltrout married his second wife Emma L. Reneker on January 30, 1890, a graduate of Philadelphia Normal School, and who was for fifteen years prior to their marriage, principal of Norris J. Hoffman Grammar School of Philadelphia.
