Upon receipt of a letter from Leon Borst, pointing out discrepancies in my previous data re Anna Elizabeth Siegfried, married to Solomon Diehl, I re-submit the following:
Johannes Siegfried (About 1690-1747), married to Elizabeth (maiden name and birth dates unknown)--son--Joseph Siegfried (1721-1795) married to Anna Marie Romig --son--Joseph Siegfried (Capt) (1749-1825), married to Maria Lobach--son-- Peter Siegfried (?-1815), - who died on 2 Jan 1815 in Moore Township, near Bath),was married to Margaretha (some say Magdalena) Bilheimer on 28 Feb 1807.They had 6 children, none of whom were named “Anna Elizabeth:” .
Johannes was the first Siegfried on record living in the US. So far we have not been able to trace his ancestors. His wife Elizabeth last name is unknown.
Joseph Siegfried, son of Joseph and Anna Maria (Romig) was a Captain in the Revolutionary War and received citations for his actions.
Peter Siegfried, son of Capt. Joseph Siegfried, married Susannah Kern.The parents of Susannah Kern were Lorentz (Lawrence) Kern and Elizabeth Catherine Baer.
There is no known connection between the aforementioned Johannes Siegfried (About 1690 - 1747) andthe following Peter Siegfried (1720/21 - 1777)
Peter Siegfried, (1720/21 - 1777) , first found in Whitehall Township, Northampton(Lehigh after 1812) County, when Peter warranted land in 1772.Peter, according to Egypt Reformed Church Cemetery records, died in March of 1777 at age 56.He married Eva Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) -- son-- Andreas Siegfried (1750) who married Anna Elizabeth Herzog (1756) -- son-- Peter Siegfried (1780), who married Susanna Frey ---daughter Anna Elisabeth Siegfried (b. 27 Mar 1807, d. 1857), married to Solomon Diehl (b. 10 May 1782, d. 19 Feb 1865) - children: Solomon (b. 4 Jul 1827), Uriah (b. 2 Mar 1832), Elias (b. 12 May 1835), Celeste Caroline (b. 10 Jul 1837), and Anne Matilda (b. 4 May 1844).
Anna Elisabeth Siegfried was the second wife of Solomon Diehl. His first wife was Susanna (Lucy Ann) Zimmerman, and they had three children, Jonathan (b. 3 Feb 1809), Benjamin (no data), and Jesse (b. about 1820).
