PK, What I know is:William Dinger was b. Dec 1866 in Pennsylvania(according to the 1900 census). He was married to Ida Eisenhut: b. Mar 1872 in Switzerland
From the story that I got from my grandfather: Chester Dinger, William left home when he was 15 years old and joined a wagon train.He had a full sibling, but I don't know the name.It was Williams father that immigranted to the US from Germany.
My e-mail is:firstname.lastname@example.org is still valid.Thanks for any help. Robin
