About Johann Conrad Dieffenbach, II

In the year 1702, and entry in theh records of the Reformed Church in Wieslock, Germany. Reads: "Johann Conrad Dieffenbach, a widower age 43, a Cooper by trade, lives here with a son Jacob and a daughter Catherine Margaretha, age 4, born 1698." As Conrad and Marie were married in the Reformed Church, it may be assumed that her father (Deceased at time of the marriage) & family were among the mulititude of Calvinists who fled to Germany to escaped Religious persecution in their homeland.

Printed 1723-1973 Anniversary Magazine of the Tulpehocken "Early Tulpehocken Settlers" by Charles Adam Fisher John Conrad Dieffenbach, commonly called "Conrad" may have been a son of the widow Anna Dieffenbach, who lived in the colony of New York, in 1710.
