My ancestor Mariah (Maria) Feltenberger was the daughter of Jacob Feltenberger. She married Phillip Carroll Jr. in 1832. A few years later Phillip changed his name to Phillip Carroll Olinger. His father Phillip Carroll Sr. had died when Phillip Jr. was a baby. He was "adopted" by an Olinger family, although his mother seems to have had legal custody. She suffered a breakdown after her husband's death & had no means of support. He may have waited until his mother's death to add the Olinger name, not wanting to upset her. Details of the name change are unknown.
