Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 758, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.
"ADAM M. KLECKNER was born in Carroll County, Ohio, April 6, 1840, and is the yougest of the five children born to MICHAEL and MARY (LEVENGOOD) KLECKNER, viz., LAVINA, JOSEPH, ELIZABETH, JACOB and ADAM. The father was born in Pennsylvania in 1800, came when young to Ohio with his parents, became a hatter, at which trade he worked about ten years, and then became a farmer. He came to Monterey (Pulaski County, Indiana), in 1847, served several years as Township Trustee, and also as County Commissioner, and died in 1866. ADAM came here with his father, and here grew up among the first settlers. He was married September 18, 1864, to RUTH MILLER, who bore him three children - CORA, DELLA and BERTON. In 1865, he moved to Fulton County, Indiana, and there MRS. KLECKNER died in February, 1879, a devout Christian, and greatly mourned by all. In 1881, he returned to Pulaski, and now owns a fine farm of 224 acres, one mile and a quarter west of Monterey. He also owns eighty acres in Fulton County. His chief attention is given to general crops, but he also rears stock to some extent."
