in the old graveyard. At any rate nothing remains there now to indicate the spot or place of burial. My father is under the impression he, Caspar, must be buried in the old Adam Diller graveyard. The graveyard is very old; it was there during his recollection, and it may be one of those unmarked graves is his. Mr. Smoker thinks others were buried under the old chestnut tree, at least there was more than one grave.
After writing the above, I met Mr. William Dietrich (Julianna Diller's husband). I inquired of him about the chestnut tree graveyard. He says it has not been more than five or six years since the tombstones were removed, but where to he is not able to say. Mr. Dietrich says there were five or six large sized stones, some very old, but the names he knows nothing of. No doubt Mrs. Dietrich and her sisters had them removed, but where, nobody here knows.

The Diller reunions, 1910, 1915, and 1939, have been held in New Holland, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, since this publication; and at the last of these the Caspar Diller Family Association was formed. In the interim between the meetings, a Council, of which Alonzo Diller, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is president, represents the Association. Dr. Theodore Diller,
6861 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, is secretary. Two of the original members of the Council, since it was created, namely, Mr. George S. Townsley, of New Holland, and Dr. Samuel W. Diller, Jr., of Lancaster, who had faithfully served on it, have since passed away. The council records its sense of great loss in the death of these two men. Both were deeply interested in the welfare of the Association. Mr. Townsley had served faithfully as its secretary. The Council, with Amos Diller, of Chambersburg, recently visited Lebanon, Pa., and there, in the Hill Cemetery identified the grave of Caspar Diller. The marker reads:
Hier Ruhet Caspar Elias Diller Geb. in jahr anno 1696 Junius den 25ten Ist alt worden 91 jahr, & 5 monten
