Dale,

Shucks.

I spent a long, long time on the Dinkles a number of years ago. In retrospect, it looks like I was trying to make the sources and facts I found fit what now looks like questionable research on the part of others.

Just went back and looked at my notes. And double shucks, I have a lot of sources for obviously the wrong Dinkle family.

(I do not use the Anna in Anna Margaret Riehl’s name, assuming it was just a church name.)

An abstract of William Riehl’s will is published at Ancestry:

Name: William Riehl
Description: Decedent
Residence: York Town Township
Date: 12 Sep 1781
Prove Date: 15 Oct 1781
Remarks:
Riehl, William. Sep. 12, 1781.
Executor: John Heckendorn. York Town Township.
Wife: Gertrude Riehl.
Children: Catharine wife of Harman Hookas and Margaret wife of Daniel Dinkel. Grandchildren: Five children of Margaret names not given.

(I only show four children in my file.)

The will was written in 1781. Since William Riehl’s daughter, Margaret, was mentioned by name in 1781, she must have been living. Since she was also noted as the wife of Daniel Dinkle, it appears he also was living in 1781.

I have removed the above Daniel Dinkle as my ancestor.

Elizabeth Dinkle , my ancestor, was born December 1778.

The bible of Solomon Huffman (husband of Elizabeth Dinkle) staes that her father was Daniel Dinkel (note spelling) and her mother Susanna Dinkel. It states that Elizabeth was born in Frederick County, Maryland.

From the book, "Life Under Four Flags" by C. E. May, McClure Press, 1976, it states that Daniel Dinkle migrated from York County, Pennsylvania to Frederick County, Maryland and then to Virginia about 1790. His name first appears in the Rockingham tax list from 1797-1801.

Pretty confused at this point.

I am using the quite remarkable research of W. Richard Shindle as the basis for my research on my Hoffmann/Huffman ancestors. Solomon Huffman was the son of Valentin Hoffmann and Anna Marie Franck.

I have yet to fully explore the online Friedens Church records in which both the Dinkle and Huffman families are noted.

Following is how I fit into the Dinkle family. My father was Jacob Holmes Kyger.
