John E. Ilgenfritz
John E. Ilgenfritz son of Martin and Mary Ann (Plowman) Ilgenfritz, of York, Penn., was born December 16, 1833, in Shrewsberry Township. When our subject was a youth school advantages were limited, but he received a little instruction in the schools of his village, and also attended one short term in Dunkard Valley, Springfield Township,PA. He then served a three years' apprenticeship at mill-wrighting, and as a journeyman worked at his trade ten years.

He kept a restaurant eight years in Glen Rock,PA and then, in 1864, enlisted in the One Hundred and First Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, 101st Regiment, served until the close of the war and was honorably discharged at Harrisburg,PA.

After the war he began the butchering business at York, Penn. December 3, 1854, he married Rebecca Klinedinst, daughter of David and Catherine Klinedinst, of North Codorus Township,PA. The children born to this marriage are the following, living: Margaret, Leonard, Zarvilla, David, Martin Edward, Ellsworth. Deceased: Martha J., Robert C., Charles L., John Wesley, Milliard Kemp and Minnie May.
Mr. Ilgenfritz has, in connection with his butchering, a well-stocked grocery store, and has always received a good share of patronage in his line of business.
