Diller Genealogy - Page 09
The following data is extracted from The Diller Family, By JL Ringwalt.
The matter in the preceding pages relates more particularly to the descendants of the two sons of Caspar Diller, name Philip, Adam, and Caspar, Jr.. In regard to the descendants of the other son of the immigrating Caspar, named Han Martin, who was the father of the Adam Diller, who was, in turn, the father of Mrs. Catharine Ringwalt, born Diller (who was my grandmother), I have received the following information: --
The date of the birth of my grandmother, and her three sisters, was as follows: Anna Margaretta Diller, born November 29, 1773; Catharine Diller, born January 17, 1776, died in 1858; Susanna Diller, born October 3, 1777; Elizabeth Diller, September 23, 1788. Being informed that the dates of the birth and death of the parents of the Dillers, named above, were on their tombstones in the Lutheran graveyard in New Holland, to obtain those inscriptions; I wrote to New Holland, and obtained the following reply from Levi A. Diller, son of Solomon Diller, dated New Holland, January 12, 1876:
Below, find inscriptions on tombstones as requested.
PHILIP ADAM DILLER Born January 31st, 1751; Died December 27th, 1792; aged 41, 10, 27.
IN MEMORY ELIZABETH DILLER
Wife of Adam Diller Died January, 1842; aged 92 years. "Weep not for me. For all your tears are vain; Prepare to meet your God, That we may meet again."
The above is a correct copy of your great-grandmother's tomb; no date of birth, and no day of the month is given. It is evident the stone was put up some time after her death, and by some one who did not know of the day, and nobody here has any record of her birth.
[It is my individual impression that she died some years earlier that 1842, because I left New Holland in 1840, and I think she was dead before that time. J. L. R.
