you might me absolut right when yu suspect Dendtler beeing a Danish name. I am trying for years to find the missing link between Dendtlers in US and my own family. Now since i has a look at www.elliesisland.org if know some Dendtlers came to the US but via Saint Thomas, Danish West.
This is the result i became:
