Does anyone know of a connection between the Otten name and the "Pennsylvania Dutch" (who, as you probably already know, were actually German)? I just found my first Otten ancestor, and Otten is also my first possibly German surname. My Grandmother told the family many times that we had Pennsylvania Dutch "somewhere" in our past.
(The ancestor I found is Margaret M. Otten, born Oct 3, 1852 to John B. Otten and Sarah Ann Hedger, in Campbell Co. Kentucky. I found, in this forum, some info that her father, John B. Otten, was born in 1817)
