FYI: Look for all of these spellings for GINTER as, most likely, one of them is the actual last name of the immigrant. GINTER is "American" for GUENTHER, GUENTER, GUNTHER and GUNTER. G U(with 2 dots over it called an umlaut)NTHER is spelled GUE NTHER in English and was shortened to GIN THER or GIN TER or GU NTER. Many people from Germany/France (remember that parts of France were in Germany and vice versa for years and years)came to Ringwood, NJ to work in the iron smelting communities. Also, even earlier many originally came to NY from Herbitzheim aka Herstom/Herston, Germany. Many settled in the Mohawk Hills area of Lewis County. Check my postings on GUENTHER and GUNTHER / GUNTER as many are listed there and it could be possible that it is also your line. Remember that for every "No" in research is a step closer to the eventual "Yes, this is my family." God bless you, He loves you!!
