Subject: Re: [MDGARRET] PLEASE help find two missing Great-Grandaunt's
Date: Mon, 25 May 2009 16:27:22 EDT
I found two Magdalena in the Diehl information I have; i.e., Magdalena
DIEHL (b. 1590) and Magdalena STRENGLER (b. 1784)--So it appears that given
name was in the DIEHL family, but there is about a 66-year gap to the 1850
census. Andrew DIHEL was 73 in the 1880 census--dau Catharine was 26--she may
have been the last child and would have been born in 1854. The older
censuses would only have number of children in each age group--unfortunately no
names. Maybe the Agricultural Census would lend more information. I am not
familiar with it however. Just ran out of information. Sorry.
Martin DEAL/DIEHL's wife was Juliana Wiess (translates to White)--she was
my 2nd g-grandmother, Anna Katharina SCHMIDT HETRICK's aunt.
I also found some MUELLERs and MILLERs in the DIEHL line. Are you
connected to these Garrett County families.

Thank you for your response. Over more years than we can remember we have
checked into possibly every known record and document available, finding
the variations and intermingling of the surnames:
(Deetle, Deichel(le), Deichtel, Deightle, Deicle, Deitel(le), Deitchel,
Dieddle, Diegel, Dieghtle, Dietel(le), Diettle, Dietzel), (Deahl, Deal,
Deale, Deihl, Dichl, Diehl)
Keeping the correct members of each line (with various spellings of
surname) within the proper branch has proved challenging, to say the least.
Finding those who married into each and merged the various spellings. As we
all have experienced this is common place, for those of us researching
Allegany / Garrett and Somerset, but, not limited to those areas.
We have no idea who either, Magdalena, born abt. 1851 or Julianne, born
abt. 1856 married. We were hopeful someone may have a unconnected lady
married to a family member who might fit, that we could look-into, if she could
be the missing great-grandaunt.
