Diller Genealogy - Page 25
The following data is extracted from The Diller Family, By JL Ringwalt.
3. Martin Diller, son of Caspar Diller, Jr., married first Miss Immel, of Chamberburg, and their only child was named Eliza. After the death of this first wife, he marred Miss Young, who became the mother of three sons and six daughters, the sons being named Martin, Peter ( who is presumably the Peter Diller whose statement is published elsewhere), and Joseph, and the daughters Mary, Anna, Catharine, Rebecca, Leah, and Juliana.
4. Samuel Diller, who died some time ago near Dillsburg, was also of the fourth generation, through one of the descendants of Caspar Diller, Jr. ; and Dr. Joseph Morritz Diller, of Ashland, Ohio, was a son of Benjamin, another son of Caspar Diller, Jr.
Of this Samuel Diller the creditable fact is related that he built a church on his farm near Dillsburg, free to ministers of all denominations, in which he frequently exhorted.
l. Peter Diller (son of Adam Diller) who married Anna Margaretta Diller, his second cousin, and became the progenitor of the Hanover branch of the Diller family, had four sons and five daughters, viz., Adam (no issue), Pe ter (no issue), Daniel, Samuel, Anna (married to Alleweit), A. Margaretta (married to Grebe), Salome (single), Catharine (married to Johns), and Elizabeth, (married to Marshall).
The Hanover Spectator of July 4, 1851, has the following notice of the death of the Mr. Daniel Diller, named above: --
"Died on Wednesday morning last, July 2, 1851, in the vicinity of Hanover, after several months severe affliction, Mr. Daniel Diller, aged 56 years, 1 month, and 9 days. Thus has passed away from out midst one of our most es timable citizens. Few men have been able to maintain a more consistent and upright course for strict integrity in every department of life. His last moments were eminently peaceful, and in the full possession of his faculties, and in the enjoyment of the clearest assurance of his readiness for a change. He leaves a wife and several children, with many relatives and friends, to mourn their irreparable loss, but they sorrow not as those who have no hope."
Mr. Daniel Diller's widow, Anna, died June l, 1854, aged 52 years, 3 months, and 10 days.
