Barbara,
I don't know anything about this line of Olinger's. I found that when Johann Philip and his bro. Johann George came to Pa. on the ship 'Friendship' in 1741, Their father and a sister (Barbara)& possibly a younger Bro stayed in Germany. They are listed as born in Eschweiler,Zweibruchen, Germany.(Which I later learned were two different places.)Where in Bavaria was your Englebert O. born? The b. date 1830, could make him a grandchild of a bro. who stayed in Germany.I will keep alert for Englebert O.Do you have any other names that could possibly connect? By 1830 my Olinger line had moved from Pa. thru Va. and settled in Ill.
Some of my Grandmothers siblings moved on to N.D. and Neb. while others to Ohio, and Grandma to Mich.
Thanks for the response,
Sara

My mother and father ahd the last name Olinger and I have always heard that the origins of our family tree at least on my dads side were from PA. My family now lives in Smyth County Virginia, where they have been as long as any one can remember. My great grandfather's name was Samuel--do you find this name, or any other Olingers in SW Virginia in your own research? Also, I would appreciate some good clues about researching this surname.--Thanks, Rita.

Rita,
Thank you for your response to my querry. I don't have a Samuel Olinger in my direct family line. But I do have some other info in my Olinger files which I will search to see what I can find about him. He may be desendant of Johann George Olinger, bro. of Johannes Philip Olinger (my line) And they did indeed settle 1st in Pa. and by 1789 Philip was in Augusta Va. I would have look at a map to see where Smyth co.is.
What do you have so far for sure? find your g-g-father's b. and d. date,then you can get his parents names,(usually) It helps to also have names of siblings to dbl. check family lines. Olinger names are repeated in every generation, so there are a lot of cousins/etc.w/same names. Let me know what you need, hope I can be of help. Sara
