4.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  there's a William KLINGER indexed in Shuylkill Co., PA, and a William CLINGER in Crawford Co., OH, but none in Preble Co., OH.  I did a page-by-page check of Lanier Twp., Preble Co., OH, and found a Nicholas KLINGER (mis-indexed KILINGER) and a Michael KLINGER, who are William's brothers.

5.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, and I did a page-by-page check of Lanier Twp., Preble Co., OH, where I do find William's brother, Michael KLINGER, living near Andrew & Matilda (KLINGER) COPP and PAULLUS and LOY.  I also did a page-by-page of Twin Twp., where I found a young William KLINGER (æ 26, b. OH), who was not indexed, living near our subject's son, Isaac KLINGER.  I also found:

1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #38 of 47):  West Alexander, Twin Twp., Preble Co., OH, p. 442A, 848/848, enumerated 5 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
William Klinger 60 M   None 8300 Pennsylvania
Caroline Klinger 56 F       "
Margaret Klinger 16 F       Ohio
William's wife should be Catharine, born in Virginia.  Has this enumerator made multiple errors?  Or did William remarry between 1850 and 1860?  Living four households from Adam LOY and his wife, Elizabeth (æ 50, b. VA), with their son, Alfred (æ 15).

6.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com; Image #6-7 of 48):  Eaton P.O., Twin Twp., Preble Co., OH, Roll 1026 (Book 1), pp. 3B-4A, PN 6-7, 45/45, enumerated 2 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
William Klinger 66 M   Gentleman 730 2320 Pennsylvania
[next page]
Catharine Klinger 68 F         Virginia
Living next door to Adam LOY and his wife, Elizabeth (æ 59, b. VA), with their son, Alfred (æ 24).  In the 1850 census, there is an Alfred LOY (æ 12), living with our subject's son, Isaac KLINGER, and his wife.  I'll wager that Mrs. Elizabeth LOY is Catharine's sister.
