Michael GRIM(M) Bavaria>Coshocton OH>Dallas IA

Hoping to connect with someone who is researching the family of Michael Grim(m) who came from Bavaria with his parents in 1837, settling in Tiverton, Coshocton, Ohio. He married there in 1846 to Philalena "Phebe" Wingerson (various spellings). They had a bunch of children there and removed to Des Moines between 1867-1870. They had 2 more children in Xenia by 1873. They were in Beaver in 1880 and Michael died in Woodward in 1887.

I'm not finding either Michael or Phebe at Findagrave. I expect they were Catholic.

We have a DNA match who descends from this couple. Matches on our Grimm line that I don't already know are few and far between, so this is exciting. Michael was of the age that he could have been a brother to my 2XGGF. I've been looking for the origin in Bavaria of our Grimms for 30 years.
