Their German name is Gunther so sometimes on the census in Calhoun Co. the name is under Gunther--also I saw a Civil War record with both names.

These Gunter-Kinder's were here in 1850 but I can't find an immigration record for John Kinder aka Gunther. His brother Frederick went back and tried to get their mother to come with them, but she refused (according to family)--but brother George and his wife Caroline Otto came in 1854 and I found those immigration records. A bunch of people from Hanover to St. Louis to Calhoun traveled together.
