Samuel Diller (1811 - 1873)

Samuel Diller was born June 18th 1811 [1]  to Casper Elias Diller III and Anna Christina Wolf [2]  in Allen Township, present day Monroe Township, near Churchtown located in Cumberland County Pennsylvania. [3] 

Samuel married Catherine Richwine of Cumberland County on September 4th 1828, most likely in the Diller hone, and recoded at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Carlisle, Cumberland County Pennsylvania. [4]  Catherine was born March 16th 1811. [5] 

By 1858 Samuel and Catherine owned three farms, which were close to each other. One of the farms was adjacent to the farms of his two brothers; Lenard and Daniel Diller, which was reachable off present day Route 174, on South Ridge Road, just outside Boiling Springs Pennsylvania. Samuel's other two farms were probably reachable off present day Route 74 onto South Ridge Road. These two other farms were close to the farms Michael, Joseph, and Peter Diller. Also in this area were Jacob Richwine and Catherine Diller who all lived off present day Rout 74, north of Churchtown toward Carlisle Pennsylvania, just past the intersection of South Ridge and South Middlesex Roads. [6]

Samuel and Catherine continued to prosper within the Churchtown farming community of Monroe Township Cumberland County, when on September 23rd 1867, they bought 600 hundred acres of farm land and 100 acres of mountain land from the Heikes families. The land was purchased as five tracts from; David M. Heikes; Jonas Heikes; Noah Heikes; Andrew Heikes; and Lawrence Heikes.   [7] 

The land was sectioned into seven farms, which were located off present day South Mountain Road, facing the mountain and starting at Hickory Road toward Uniontown Road, and proceeding further south on mountain Road, and extending just past present day Water Street. [8]  One of the farms was then sold to Samuel and Catherine Diller's son-in-law, Jacob M. Sollenberger, who was the husband of their daughter Mary Ann Diller. [9]  This is a 1876 map that identifes the locations of family farms. This photo is of two of the farms. Samuel's home is still in the Diller family.

Samuel built a church on his one farm near Dillsburg, free to ministers of all denominations, in which he frequently exhorted. [10]  John Arnold and his neighbor Samuel Diller where warrantees for property, dated May 29th 1868, which they then warranted to Robert Neil on June 8th 1868. The original warrant for the land was dated October 28th 1757. [11] 

John's family, and the Diller and Sollenberger families, attended the South Mountain Union Church. The church was funded and built in 1867 by Reverend Samuel Diller, on a section of Samuel's farm. Samuel supervised the building of the church, which cost him $1,500. The church was then dedicated by Reverends Warner, Fohl, and Hunter. At the time there was church organization, but in 1868, a Sunday-school was organized, its membership was sixty-five, and G. W. Brandt was the church superintendent. Services were held in the building by clergymen of the Evangelical Association United Brethren in Christ, German Baptist and Church of God. [12] 

In 1885, John Arnold was the church superintendent; Jacob Brandt, George P. Weaver, Abraham Fleming, Samuel Yohn, and J. M. Sollenberger were the trustees. [13]  Abraham Fleming and Samuel Yohn are son-in-laws of Samuel; Abraham is married to Catherine Ann Diller, and Samuel Yohn is married to Sarah Ann Diller. John Arnold, Samuel Diller, and Jacob M. Sollenberger are related to our Wrightstone family. [14]  In 1877 John Arnold purchased a farm from Samuel Diller's son, also named Samuel C. Diller, [15]  who was moving to Michigan with his brother Cyrus. [16] 

Samuel died March 1st 1873, 61 years, 8 months and 11 days old, at his farm on South Mountain Road located in Franklin Township York County Pennsylvania. [17]  In Samuel's will, he bequeathed to his wife Catherine the minister's home associated with the church that Samuel built; South Mountain Union Church. [18]  If Catherine died, the home or its value was bequeathed to their two daughters; Pricilla Ann and Rosanna Ann. [19]  Catherine would live in this home until she died January 17th 1887, at 75 years, 10 months, and 1 day old.  [20]
