I'm searching for the parents of Magdalena (Dittelbaugh) Corbin. She married Sampson Corbin. She was born in 1851,
died in 1903. I beleive her parents were from Germany and I
do think that the last name could be a different spelling
than what I have. Thank you.

I am searching for her, too, Susie. The surname is very rare. Variations of DITTELBAUGH are DITTLEBAUGH, DIDDLEBAUGH, TITTLEBAUGH, TITTELBAUGH. The original spelling appears to be TITTELBAUGH, with the other being phonetic misspellings, though it's hard to be certain which came first. All are German, and a handful of these families appear in central Ohio counties in the mid-1800s.

Wyandot Co. records have Magdalena DITTLEBAUGH married to Sampson CORBIN on 10 Apr 1870. I think the date may have been misread because Sampson is still living with his parents in the 1870 Census in Richland Twp., Wyandot Co., OH, p. 789B, which was enumerated 3 Jun 1870. Whatever the exact date, Magdalena should appear in the 1860 and 1870 censuses somewhere, and I'm still looking.

As soon as Ancestry.com gets its census pages fixed, I'll go back to trying to find her.

Thank you very much for the additional information, Michael. Have you any idea where Magdalena's parents were in the 1870 and 1860 censuses -- or when they entered the country?

Magdalena married in 1870 in Wyandot Co., OH, so you would think her parents would be there in the 1870 census, but danged if I can find them.

P.S. "Caleb Dillbough" = Gotlieb Dietelbach

Well, I believe I've partially just answered my own question. Knowing Magdalena's father's name was Gotlieb DIETELBACH, I went back to my index of the 1870 Ohio Census (CD from Heritage Quest). I found him by searching on his age and birthplace. Would you believe? He's indexed as:

Dillbough Caleb 59 M W Wurt Wyandot Kirby Twp Roll 1284 Page 734

Has to be him, but I can't confirm it because this image is missing from the images at Ancestry.com -- just one of a GREAT MANY missing pages (so much for having "all" the census online from 1790-1920).

Thanks Michael and Gail! I suspected my Magdalena was Gottlieb Dietelbach's, since I have found no other name close to this in this area. Gail I appreciate the census info, I can get to the library and follow up on this! How interesting, the misspelling! Thanks again!

I did find Gottlieb's 1860 census record. It sure helps knowing what you're looking for:

1860 Crawfordsville P.O., Salem Twp., Wyandot Co., OH, p. 510B, PN 114, 798/811, enumerated 20 Jul 1860:

Godlip Dedelbaugh 49 M Farmer 1200 400 Wuerttemberg
Magdaline 40 F Wuerttemberg
John M Wuerttemberg
Godlip 12 M Ohio
Magdaline 9 F Ohio
Henry 6 M Ohio
Christian 4 M Ohio
George 2 m Ohio

Given that Gottlieb, Jr., was born in OH in 1847/8, we should find Gottlieb, Sr., as head-of-household in Ohio in 1850. I have an index to the 1850 census of Ohio on Broderbund CD-317, but I could not find Gottlieb. I did find him in 1880:

1880 Amanda Twp., Hancock Co., OH, p. 506D, PN 28, SD 1, ED 184, 259/268, enumerated 16 Jun 1880:
Deidlebaugh Gotleib W M 70 Ret Farmer Germany Germany Germany
___________ Magdalena W F 71 Wife Keeping House Germany Germany Germany
Farmer Cintha W F 24 Servant Ohio Ohio Ohio

They are living next door to their son, Gottlieb, Jr.

1880 Amanda Twp., Hancock Co., OH, p. 506D, PN 28, SD 1, ED 184, 258/267, enumerated 16 Jun 1880:
Deidlebaugh Calik (sic) W M 32 Farmer Ohio Germany Germany
___________ Ellen W F 27 Wife Keeping House Ohio Unknown Ohio
___________ Ida V W F 7 Daughter Ohio Ohio Ohio
___________ William W M 5 Son Ohio Ohio Ohio

If you can get the 1870 census record, it would greatly appreciated. I don't expect Ancestry.com to get all the missing pages online for months, at the rate their going.

(Just for the record, I go by Diana, not Gail.)

Ok, will look in the 1870 census as soon as I am able, thanks. Sorry about the name, it didn't seem correct when I typed Gail, should have checked! LOL

Yes, but he's not the one indexed as head-of-household in the 1870 census. The Heritage Quest 1870 census index says "Caleb Dillbough," head of household, is 59 years old (i.e., born 1810/11) and born in Wuerttemberg. The son was presumably not born until after his parents' marriage in 1840. So, given his age (and birthplace), this census record has to be of the father, not the son.

It appears to me that "Caleb" may be an Anglicized corruption of "Gottlieb." In the 1860 census (see prior message), "Godlip Dedelbaugh" (age 49, b. Wuerttemberg) and wife, Magdalena, have a son, "Godlip" (age 12, b. Ohio). In the 1880 census, we see "Gotleib Deidlebaugh" (age 70, b. Germany) and wife, Magdalena, living next door to "Calik Deidlebaugh" (age 32, b. Ohio). Calik/Caleb and his wife, Ellen, have two children, ages 7 and 5, which suggests they were married ca. 1871/2.

It seems pretty clear to me that the junior Godlip/Gottlieb in 1860 and the Calik/Caleb in the 1880 census are the same person, and that the "Caleb" in the 1870 census has to be the father. My bet is that we'll find the junior "Caleb" still living with his parents in 1870. We desperately need the 1870 census record, but until Ancestry.com uploads the missing page, I'm stuck.

Here are the 1880 records (images online at Ancestry.com; Image #28 of 31):
Amanda Twp., Hancock Co., OH, p. 506D, PN 28, SD 1, ED 184, enumerated 16 Jun 1880:
