    Family David K. Apgar,   b. 19 October 1859,   d. 1934 
    Married 29 November 1882 
    • They lived on Philhower Avenue, Califon, NJ, in the house later occupied by Henry Kilss, and the family of Charles Buzby. Across the street from this house was the blacksmith shop and carriage factory operated by David K. Apgar and his brother, Mancius Hutton Apgar. On December 22, 1913, this establishment burned down. It was thought that the fire started in the blacksmith shop. Water was carried from the South Branch of the Raritan River, several hundred feet away, to put out the fire. Having no fire engine, the water was carried in milk cans. A special engine was sent to the scene by the Central Railroad from Phillipsburg, because of a rumor spread that the whole town was burning down. They did save the dwelling of William Philhower, merchant, whose building was adjacent to the blacksmith shop.

      The property where the blacksmith shop had been was later used for Coleman's Garage until Mrs. Coleman died in 1954. The barn where the carriages were painted is still standing, across the street from the present garage.
