Charles Philipp Greulich

Karl2 Philipp Greulich (aka Charles Philipp) was born 13 Sep 1838 in Haag, Mosbach, Germany, the son of Georg Philipp Greulich and Anna Margaretha Wurzel.[1],[2],[3] He died 2 Feb 1904 in East Greenville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

After his father’s death on 12 May 1855, Karl left Germany at the age of 17 and came to the United States. A passport dated November 8, 1855 was issued at Neckargemund for Karl Philipp Greulich and two relatives—his sister Eva Katarina Greulich and their half-brother Georg Philipp Jakob. Karl anglicized his name to Charles and learned the shoemaker trade from Samuel O. Stauffer of North Zionsville, Pennsylvania. I presume he chose this profession because his father was also a shoemaker back home in Haag. He became a naturalized citizen.[4]
