Okay Kate, sorry for so many e-mails. My last thought is I have a Johan Georg Dieter, b. 1822 in Baden. He was a boot maker just like your Wilhelm was. It's possible yours and mine are the same but your date is off? Mine could not have been born in 1804 due to the information I have on him. If you know this is the same as yours then I have much more information for you. You can contact me at HugNArm@sbcglobal.net.
