Kenneth, do you have in your research any Dingeldein people who were in Illinois and, specifically, at Whiteside County?
My husband's grandfather, Christoph JUST, came from Province Posen in the early 1880s to Walnut, Bureau County, Illinois, with his elderly father who was also named Christoph JUST. The family oral history is that Christoph the younger worked on a farm at Tampico, Whiteside County, Illinois, for a DINGELDEIN family.
I was interested in the marriage of Catharina TEUSCH DINGELDEIN at LaCrosse, Wisconsin, to Gottlieb KELM because Christoph JUST, when his father died in Illinois, went to Yellow Medicine County, Minnesota, to join relatives who had already settled there. One of the founders of the German Lutheran church in that rural community (Christoph JUST and his wife were the first couple married in this church) was a Gottlieb KELM. I wonder if this Gottlieb KELM was the same man who married at LaCrosse, Wisconsin, or if it was a son of his.
Seeking any lead or theory!
