Ahh this may not be much help. In this Book Dettwiler (Detwiler) 1556-1958 I did notice a small note on Ohio.
The book starts out about a Detwiler from Switezerland and in the notes on him coming to America it says:
On April 23, 1853 Johannes (Detwiler) Saled from France for America (he was Swiss) He met a girl on the ship and when he landed he went with her family to PA instead of where his cousin lived in Ohio.
It is a rather lenghy book to type in. But if you would like a copy. Please send your address and maybe you will find something of interest inside. It has many many Detwilers listed, mostly in the Kansas area.
But if may give you some kind of lead or you may find a familiar name.
I borrowed the book from a friend and had a chance to copy it out.
