    Notes 
    • "Heinrich the elder son of Christoph and Catharina was born on Feb. 1, 1843. Almost two years and three month later, they married on May 30, 1845. We do not know the reasons for this decision. But in former rural or agrarian regions they used to make children prior to marriage just to make sure the bride's conceptive ability. Children have been the best future insurance."
      (Brigitte Meyer-Junghans)

      Christoph was a farmer and stock raiser in Clinton Co., IL from 1848 until his death.
      Two of his marriages are in the Illinois marriage index under Yunghans. His marriage to Karolina Vaupel was recorded Jan 23, 1862. According to Clinton Co. it took place Oct 11, 1861.

      Obit:
      Mr. Christian Junghans, an old honest, upright, and well-regarded farmer, one of the settlers of this region for the most years, died last Thursday afternoon at half-past four on his farm about 6 miles northeast of here and on Sunday noon was laid to rest here in the city cemetery with numerous attendees. The Rev. P. Ilgen gave a touching but comforting funeral sermon at the grave. The deceased was born in the County of Eschwege in the Electoral Principality of Hesse-Kassel on 22 January 1818 and had attained the ripe age of 76 years and 10 months. In the year 1848 he came to America, settling here, where he worked for three years as a joiner. In 1851 he married Miss Lucy Gra|3 (Grass) and then moved to the farm. In 1861 he lost his first wife and married a second time to Caroline nee Vaupel. Ten years later she also died, and in 1875 he took as his third marriage partner Mrs. Augusta Henke nee Ohm, his surviving deeply mourning wife. Besides her there mourn their father and grandfather, a son from the first marriage, one son and one daughter from the second marriage, and one son and one daughter from the third marriage, all grown, as well as seven grandchildren. Since December the deceased had been ill, suffering from stomach cancer, and departed this life at the hour named, mourned by his family and a great number of friends and acquaintances. (The Highland Bote, late November, 1894.) (Maurine Jenne)

      Cannot find a record of his marriage to Lucy Grass.
