I know of another researcher who may be of help to you her name is also Rebecca. Rebecca Durflinger first inspired me to research my line of Derflinger’s and we have shared information, both U.S. and German. As far as I know one of the first Derflinger/Durflinger to move to the Ohio area was a man named Henry Durflinger. Henry Durflinger is a 5x Grandfather of Rebecca Durflinger Grill. I’m sure that Rebecca would share her family information about the descendents that followed. Rebecca Grill lives in Illinois she has achieved an invaluable amount of data on the Derflinger/ Durflinger heritage.

P.S. I will forward additional information on the earliest Derflingers from Germany. Because it is too detailed for me to type it all now, I hope to scan it and send it to you later.
