He brought with him several sons who found employment in the glass manufacturing establishments of the district. in fact the Chambers Glass Company were instrumental in bringing the family to the US. The sons all entered the employ of the Chambers Company, but several years later established in other lines. There were four sons and four daughters in the original Koegler family founded in the US by Grandfather Koegler, the blacksmith; 1. Adam, originally a glass blower, later established a carpet store at 1316 Carson Street, Pgh, that is yet conducted by the sons. 2. George, died at age 40, was an expert glass blower. 3. William F., of further mention.l 4. Gottleib, enlisted in the Union army and died during the Civil War. %. Margaret, married William Hale, a glass blower of Pgh., South Side. 6.
