Tam, Klingaman, Mertz

I have two Tams who married into a couple of my lines.
I was wondering if you people could help me identify their parents.

John Tam's wife Elizabeth Thompson married my gr-gr-gr grandfather Jacob Klingaman after John died. One of Jacob's sons George Klingaman b 13 October 1824 in PA and died 12 June 1879 in Tama Co. IA married Mary Tam b approx 1830 died 27 June 1906 in CO. I don't have any proof but thought that Mary was possibly the daughter of John and Elizabeth Thompson Tam. George and Mary's child that I know of was Elizabeth Klingaman b 28 January 1846 in OH.
She married Benjamin F Noll. George was the older brother of my gr-gr grandmother Amanda Klingaman Mertz.

The Mertz line has a Mary Tam who married John Franklin Mertz b 22 May 1858 on 22 January 1881. John F was the son of Archibald and Susannah Baughman Mertz. Archibald was the older brother of my gr gr Grandfather Benjamin Franklin "Frank" Mertz. Both were sons of John Mertz.

Both these families were in Auglaize County OH. I'm not sure how many Tam families were in the county either.

Can someone please help me with the two Marys parents.

Thank you!
