Diller Genealogy - Page 07
The following data is extracted from The Diller Family, By JL Ringwalt.
Dillers are descended from Caspar Diller, so is my father. I enclose you the names of Philip Adam Diller's sons, who came of age and were heads of families."
This enclosure is as follows: --
Philip Adam Diller had four sons, Adam, Leonard, Peter, Isaac: --Adam had sons - Peter,' John, George, Adam.
Leonard had sons - George, Jeremiah, Adam.
Peter had sons - Isaac, Samuel, Roland, Solomon, Levi.
Isaac had sons - Jonathan, William, Isaac, and by second wife has sons - Graybill, Adam, Amos.
My grandmother Ringwalt, Solomon Diller, and Dr. David Diller are doubtless correct in their presumption that the Hanover and New Holland families are closely related. There is an exact agreement, too, between my grandmother Ringwalt's statement that one of the three sons of the original Caspar Diller was the father of the Philip Adam Diller from whom Solomon and Roland Diller are descended, and the statement of Solomon Diller that he is the first cousin of the grandfather of the Hanover Dillers.
Another interesting statement is given below, from Peter Diller, of Cumberland County, on of the descendants of the Caspar Diller who was the son of the original Caspar Diller. I received from him a letter in November, 1877, which embodied a revision and several important additions to the statement he had made in writing to George W. Ringwalt in October, 1876. As thus amended, his account is as follows: --
"I will try to state as much as I know about out progenitors. In the first place, I begin with my great-grandfather and your mother's great-grandfather, who was Caspar Diller, from Germany, who settled near New Holland, Lan caster County, Pennsylvania, and bought a place called Hole Place (Loch Platz), and was a shoemaker by trade, and got to be very wealthy. He lived to be near a hundred years old, and had ten children living when he died. The name of the oldest son was Philip Adam, and second son's name was Han Martin; and then he had seven daughter - their names I do not know, but the names of their husbands were Breckbill, Keiner, Sweiger, Imboda, Croft, Ensminger, and Sensabach. And, last of all, he had another son, and gave him ' Peter married a sister of Mrs. Jacob Ringwalt, and moved to Hanover. Therefore, Peter (of Hanover), Adam's son, and Solomon (of New Holland), son of the Peter whao was the son of Philip Adam, were first cousins, and in this manner we trace our connection with the Hanover Dillers. Everybody here is under the impression that Philip Adam was a son of Caspar.
