Dietrich (Teter, Deter, Teator) was the David Danner on page 12 of Helman's "History of Emmitsburg, Maryland." the name David was undoubtedly a "fraktur" of Dietrich. Dietrich and his brother Michael arrived in the Philadelphia port in 1742 from the area of Frankfort on the Rhine, Germany. They were probably part of the emigrants fleeing the Palatinate mentioned by Helman. Dietrich, a blacksmith, settled in a community called Bridgeport, located between Taneytown and Emmitsburg in Frederick County. Dietrich and wife Barbara were members of the Tom's Creek Lutheran Church. (Elias Lutheran Church was located at Tom's Creek from 1757 to 1797 - ed.) Barbara bore Dietrich seven children: five daughters and two sons, Jacob and David, to carry on the Danner name. Dietrich died in 1768 and is buried in the Tom's Creek Lutheran Cemetery. Helman says his tome is said to be the oldest in the community.
Dietrich's sons Jacob and David purchased lots in Emmitsburg in 1785. Jacob (1763-1791) is the next in my direct Danner ancestral line. His avocation was listed by Helman as a merchant in the tailoring trade in Emmitsburg. Jacob married Rachael and reared five children in Emmitsburg, three sons and two daughters. Jacob passed away in 1841 and Rachael a short time later in 1842. They are both buried in the Emmitsburg (Elias) Lutheran Cemetery.
