The following is the info I have about the Baxter Co Dihels.Several Dihel families came to this country from Germany and Rotterdam between 1688 & 1741. Its thought George Dihel is decendant of one of the families from Rotterdam that settled in Northampton Co. Penn. George Dihel 1750 -1822 married 1773 to Rosina Hoffman (1753-? ) They had the following children; George-Sussanah-Ann-Samuel and Elizabeth. Samuel of these children was born 1782 in Bristol, Buck Co. Penn. He died 1840 in Vir. He married Nancy McDonald of Scotland in 1810. Nancy died in 1820 after 10 years of marriage and nine children. These nine kids were; John Wesley--Daniel--Samuel M-- William F. --Jane--George W--Nancy--Catherine--and Sussanah. Daniel Dihel of these children moved to Ark and into Baxter Co. He is listed on the 1880 census. This Daniel was a medical doctor but gave it up when he came to Ark. This Daniel 1815-1881or85 married in 1838 to Nancy Egner or Egnes (1822-1870) and they had the following children; Sussie E born 1844 (and she is the one I am trying to locate ) James Allen--Mary Margaret--Nancy F--George W--Daniel Webster--Sarrah Virginia--Lucy Ann--Lueda Emiline.I have a little bit more info about these children but will not confuse this family by putting any more on now. Daniel --the father (1815-1881or85) remarried about 1871 to Nancy Emaline McCay ( 1839-1890 ) and they had the following children; Amanda Jeslin--John Wesley--Hila Carline--Samuel A. and Joseph Franklin. Now go back to Daniel's children by his first wife Nancy Egner and find George W Dihel. Born 1854-1879 married Mary Williams and had children; James---Hannah- and John Richard. Hannah of these children married Arch Britt . I have a bit more Dihel info but will stop for now. If anyone knows more about the Sussie Dihel , I'd sure appreciate the info. Mary
