Gildner/Giltners Catt. co. NY 1800s&aftr

My wife's maiden name is Gildner, which in some of the census records is spelled Giltner. The farthest back we have is Fred and Dora Gildner of Mecklenburg, Germany who were born probably around the 1830's or 40's.
Their son, Fred Gildner b.1861 in Ger. came to the US and settled in Ashford, NY. His wife was Mary Tonger b.9/2/1865, dau. of John Tonger and Mary Dankert. Fred and Mary's son Edson Johann Gildner b.8/15/1888 married Louisa Kickbush. Their son Alvin Gildner is my wife's grandfather. He was born 1926.
If anyone has any connections or knows anymore info we would love to hear from you.
