Hello Keith, Thanks for your message; unfortunately, I don't think we have a connection.
My 1850 census for John DIETRICH (one of many spellings) was in Salt Creek Twp., Wayne County, Ohio. John was 51, born in PA; wife, Elizabeth was 46, also born in PA; John, age 20, born PA; Mary L., age 17, born PA; George W., age 14, born OH; Harriet, age 5, born OH; Charlotte, age 2, born OH; Charles H., age 9 months, born OH.
In 1860 they are in Fredericksburg, Wayne County, OH with George, Harriet, Charlotte and Charles
In 1870 Defiance, Defiance County, Ohio Harriet, Charlotte and Charles
