I'm not sure if this is correct or not but I believe John Otterbein could be my great great grand father. I recall seeing Magdalena Henrietta Otterbein on some documents that I had when I was researching my family tree. However, I've lost them.It's possible that I'm in-correct, but John Otterbein was born in Worms, Germany May 14,1779,He emigrated the US in 1827 leaving a wife and children in Germany, settling in NY (Herkimer) and married Katherine Devendorf, July 4, 1833 where they had 7 children.Because I've lost part of this information, I can't verify Magdalena is his wife that he left.
If any of this information sounds right please let me know. I have a lot of information that I can give you if you willhelp me.
