Notes for William Robert BRINGHURST

W. R. Bringhurst, Sr. opened the first carriage factory in Clarksville in 1829 introducing the Old Prince Albert style with the wooden dashboard made high and elaborately curved. Mr. Bringhurst, Sr. was born in 1804 in Germantown, PA, stopping by Clarksville in 1828. When his boat landed at the wharf, his dog jumped off and ran up a hill. After chasing the dog for some distance and having retrieved him, Bringhurst got back to the wharf just in time to discover his boat was gone. While waiting around town for later passage, he met the lovely Miss Julia Huling who was from Harrisburg, PA. Miss Huling, no doubt had come to Clarksville because her brother Judge Huling lived here. Miss Huling, known for her beauty and charm, taught music. After the meeting of the couple, Bringhurst seemed to forget about his resolve to return to Pennsylvania. The two were soon married and together they had six children.
