8. Isaac Diller married Susanna Rolan, and had children named Jonathan, Catharine, William, Julia, Isaac, and Rachel. His second wife was Maria Graybill, by whom he had Graybill and Emma Crise (twins), Adam (who subsequently lived in Illinois), and Amos.
The Peter Diller named above, who was my great-grandfather, was born April 20, 1761, and died December 13, 1816. He married, on May 18, 1784, Elizabeth Roland, who was born June 23, 1767, and died October 11, 1830. During nearly all his life he resided in New Holland, in the old stone mansion east of the brick residence of Roland Diller, Esq., which house was subsequently occupied and owned by my father, Samuel Ringwalt, from about 1837. Peter Diller, however, removed to Lancaster City in the spring of 1800, and subsequently returned to New Holland in the spring of 1802. He combined the business of farmer, merchant, and innkeeper, and in these labors was greatly assisted during his life by his energetic wife, who conducted many of them with great success after his death: superintending the operations of the farm, stare, and tavern, and also directing with great skill and carefulness the numerous household duties connected with domestic manufactures of clothing, linen, and food. She was, I believe, the granddaughter of Col. John Huber, whose name is mentioned in a history of Lancaster County, published since Rupp's, as the colonel of one of five battalions formed in 1777, for the support of the cause of Independence. Peter Diller, as elsewhere stated, exercised an important influence in politics by promoting the selection of his favorite candidates.
The Peter and Frederick Baker, named above, were brothers, who married sisters --- Christina and Margaretta Diller. Peter lived in Manheim Township, Lancaster County, from whence he emigrated to Virginia, where some of his descendants attained distinction. Those named Harding formerly resided in Powhatan County, not far from Richmond. Frederick Baker came from Germany, and lived with his brother Peter, until he purchased about 300 acres of limestone land in Pequea, Salisbury Township, Lancaster County, seven miles south of New Holland, and two miles north of the present Gap station on the Pennsylvania Railroad. he had some capital, was intelligent and energetic, and quite a scientific farmer. At considerable expense he dammed the Pequea Creek, and built works to raise water to irrigate his farm, the land of which was considerably higher that the creek. The records of Saint John's Church, at the Compass, one of the earliest Episcopal churches in the State, show that he was an active member of the vestry. He was successful as a farmer and business man. He died in Philadelphia in 18--, after undergoing a painful and dangerous surgical operation by Dr. Physic, and was buried in Christ Church graveyard, Philadelphia. His widow died at Millwood,
