Hi Sue,

I could not find any other profiles on WikiTree for Dwight D. Eisenhower. He was the 3rd of 7 sons of David Jacob and Ida Elizabeth (Stover) Eisenhower. In the spring of 1891 the Eisenhowers returned to Abilene, Kan., where their ancestors had settled as part of a Mennonite colony. David J. worked in a creamery; the family was poor, and Dwight and his brothers were introduced to hard work and a strong religious tradition at an early age.
