William WEIKERT, Muscatine County, d. 1863

I am looking for the German origin of William Weikert (1817 - 1863) of Moscow Township. He was married to Anna Martha MOELLER (1829-1915) and descendants still live in the county. William is listed as Bavarian in the census, but family tradition calls him a Rhinelander. As Bavaria owned much of the Rhineland during the proper time period, this is reasonable - but where in the Rhineland?
