The Reidenbachs of Van Wert County, OH and Adams County, IN pronounce their name as either "Reidenbach" or "Reidebaw" (no n or ch). I think the two pronunciations may reflect the difference between the High German and Rheinland Pfalz dialects. The Reidenbachs in this area came from Barweiler, Rheinland Pfalz. Other Reidenbachs from the same village who settled in Pennsylvania spell and pronounce their name "Radabaugh."
