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. The Hunter Ration list of 1710 give him as the head of the family, consisting of three persons over, and one under, ten years. Prior to 1717, Simmendinger states, Conrad, his wife Marie Barabara and five children lived in Smithtown, now the location of Schoharie Railroad Station, at Schoharie, NY. Conrad came to the Tulpehocken Section after May 13, 1723, and before January 10, 1725. Around 1732 he was a landholder in the Valley.
