I have James Samuel Dieter married to Lehna Macklen on my wife's family. He was one of our dead ends. The only child I have for them is Alvin, born in 1864. This is from LDS records. Alvin would be my wife's great-great grandfather. I'd be interested in anything you had on Dieters before James Samuel. We had him in PA or Indiana, but that was as far as we could go based on family rumor.
