B.F. Pugh

It is written in "History of Bedford and Somerset Counties, Pennsylvania; Bedford County by E. Howard Blackburn" the following:

Rev. B. F. Pugh, the youngest son of James Pugh, whose family name is Boaz, was born August 4, 1847. He attended the country schools and when a mere boy enlisted, August 21, 1864, Company K, Two Hundred and Fourth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, in the Union army of the War of the Rebellion. He did good service as a soldier and was honorably discharged at the close of the war.
He returned home, attended the normal schools of the county, taught school, entered the Missionary Institute, now Susquehanna University, at Selinsgrove, Snyder county, Pennsylvania, studied theology, prepared himself for the Lutheran ministry under Dr. H. Zeigler and graduated in June, 1877. His first charge after being ordained a Lutheran minister, June 30, 1877, of the Evangelical
Lutheran church, was at Orangeville, Illinois, where he met his future wife, Frances Adaline Cadwell. They were married September 10, 1878, at Elmira, New York. He is now located at Ottawa, Kansas, and writes: "It is time to be old, To take in sail".

If you have any further information about the Pugh Family from Sommerset, PA or photos, I would greatly appreciate any information as I am also researching my Pugh family history from the same region.
