In Reply to: Franklin Berger - Schuykill County, PA by Pamela of 1094

I am looking for the parents of Samuel Berger b: December 1849 in Schuylkill Co., PA. I thought I had found him in the 1850 census in Schuylkill Co., South Manheim Twp., but couldn't find him with his family in 1860. I again found him in 1880 census married to Mary Dingle with three children. This is what I found.

This could possibly be Samuel's parents below.
