information on Dilts and related families from Dilts researchers Bob Dils, 27515 Rd. U 6, Dolores, CO 81323; 970-882-4221; redels at frontier.net; and Richard Dils rmdils at erienet.net;

from Richard Dils:

       "Many of the ancestors of this period were said to be from the area of Urbach. In the present day Germany, there are four areas named Urbach. The correct one was said to be northeast of Neuwied. The one matching that description is about 46 miles southeast of Koln (Cologne), Germany, at approximately 50.56 degrees north latitude and 7. 59 degrees east longitude. Other towns mentioned and the distance from them to Urbach are as follows:

       "Urbach is about 2 miles SE of Linkenbach, about 4 miles W of Dierdorf, about 6 miles NNE of Anhausen...about 46 miles SE of Koln" (Cologne). [This would be in the present-day province of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.]

Notes for HENRICH DILTS:

Ancestry of Henrich/Henry Dilts/Dils/Dilss provided by Bob Dils of Dolores, CO;

       There is much controversy among Dilss/Dils/Dilts/Diltz researchers as to the ancestry of Henrich/Henry, 1709/12--1787. While most agree that he is from the Wilhelm Dilss, c. 1630-c. 1700, of Urbach, Rhineland, Prussia, Germany family, there are differences as to which of Johann Wilhelm Dilss' sons Henry descends: ?Dils or Wilhelm Dils, c. 1689-1718-19. Until evidence to the contrary comes to light, I have chosen to outline Henry's ancestry via the latter based on the the information and sources provided by Dilss researcher Bob Dils of Dolores, CO. Bob's g-g-g-grandfather was Wilhelm Henry Dils, a nephew of and executor for my Francis Dils.

notes from Dils/Dilts researcher Alison Wallner, Litwiller at prodigy.net:

        "Henry lived in Kingwood Twp., Hunterdon Co., NJ. Henry also listed in west NJ Deed Books G-H, pp. 80-84, involving 500 acres Henry bought with Paul Cool (Kuhl) from William Burge of Philadelphia, May 18, 1742.

        "Henry appointed by Henry Telts as overseer of the "Swamp Road" from 1751-1752 in Amwell Twp.

        "Henry's will was written on June 16, 1784, in Amwell Twp., probated February 20, 1788; will #1414J, Hunterdon Co.; one of executors was John Bodine.

        "Henry Dils of Amwell Twp., Hunterdon Co., NJ, June 16, 1784. [To] Son Phillip Dils who acknowledges to be my eldest son and heir, my plantation where he now lives, which is bounded on east by Walter Lain and John Pussen, south by John Rockefellow, west by William Rittenhouse, north by Henry Dils Jr., of 175 acres, only that Peter Wambagh shall have use of the lot where he lives till May 1, 1790 rent free, and my son Phillip shall pay to my son Henry 100L, and Phillip shall pay 2years after my decease to my grandson George Dils, son of William Dils 40L.

        "[To] sons PETER and Jacob plantation I live on, on both sides of the Great Road between them. The 20 acre lot where Jacob Tid has lived several years to be sold. Wife Anne use of my house and good she want to use, and a good maintenance." (then 100L given to each daughter)

from "More Palatine Arrivals" by Henry Jones, 1992,--Henry Dils was naturalized December 8, 1744.

from Frank L. Greenagel's web site and book "The New Jersey Churchscape":

       "The congregation probably got its start as a Reformed church in 1715, but switched affiliation to Presbyterian, Reformed, and back again to Presbyterian by 1818, when this large frame church was built. It was located central to its congregation, on the Old York Road at what was known as LARISON'S CORNER, rather than in a town, true for many of the earliest churches in the county.

        "Like many other early congregations, it shared a minister with a nearby congregation for many years. The church is situated on a fairly prominent rise and can be seen for miles, especially when approaching from the south."

Larison's Corner Cemetery is the burial location of Henry, 1709-1787.

from "Tombstone Inscriptions from Hunterdon County Cemeteries":

'Larison's Corner Cemetery, copied 1918 by Mrs. A. B. Simerson, Jr.--

        'This cemetery is the property of the Amwell United First Presbyterian Church. It is located on the Old York Road, a half mile east of the village of Ringoes, and in East Amwell Township. Originally it was a German Reformed Church, with services in German. The first house is believed to have been built of logs. The second, spoken of as "The Old Stone House," stood on the north side of the present graveyard. The deed for the property is dated Jan. 21, 1749, from James Whittaker to William Kase, Peter Hoffman, and William Bellowsfelt, "Trustees for and for the Calvinistical High Dutch Congregation, in the Township of Amwell." The last German pastor was Rev. Joh Jacob Wack, whose length of service is not definitely known, but approximately 1798-1805, perhaps later. He was the first pastor to conduct services in English. In 1810 this congregation united with the "Amwell First Presbyterian, " (now at Reaville), and so continued until 1818, when the union was dissolved, and the present building erected, but this church retained the title of "Amwell United First." Here in 1816 the Hunterdon County Bible Society was organized, and here its centennial anniversary was also observed. As four years have elapsed since the inscriptions were copied, the list was checked in October 1922, and stones erected since were added. A few stones copied in 1918 were not to be found in 1922, but are included here.' (The picture, above, is from photographer Frank Greenagel's The New Jersey Churchscape, online.)

 

Larson's Corner Cemetery is now called Amwell Ridge Cemetery.

from "Tombstone Inscription Hunterdon, Somerset, Middlesex Counties New Jersey": 'Dilts Grave Yard located on the Orville Dilts farm at Ringoes, Hunterdon Co., NJ...'

        also an Amwell Grave Yard (Lower): located 1 mile from Sandbrook, Delaware Twp., Hunterdon, Co. Known also as the Dunkard Grave Yard--7 Dilts buried there.

Notes for FRANCIS DILTS:

from Andy Peplow, Dilts researcher: "...I photocopied an index of Montgomery County, OH, Chancery records that include Francis Dilts [Jr.]--

        "Thorn, Henry B. adms. of John Dils dec'd. vs. William, Stephen, Francis & Martha Dils of Allen Co., 11 Oct. 1839. John Dils dec'd. of Allen Co. had given power of attorney to Francis Dils to sell his interest in real estate of his dec'd. father Francis Dils part of S10 T1 R6-169.68 acres. He had agreed to sell before John Dils death and ask for deed to be made. To have 1/11th part. Names-1. William Dils & wife Jane, 2. Peter Dils & wife Mary (Polly), 3. Richard Dils & wife Mary, 4. Mary w/o Edward D. Carter of Madison Co., Ind., 5. Elizabeth w/o Stephen Taylor of Clinton Co., Ind., 6. John Dils & wife Ellen, 7. Adam Dills & wife Martha of Wood or Lucas Co., OH, 8. Margaret, w/o William Creager, 10. William T. Dills, 11. Mary Ann, Jane Dills (widow) of Mont. Co., OH, 9. Benjamin & Catherine Doty. Also mentions John & Jane Stokes. (p. 388)

        "Page 392-lot 11 Alexanderville, Mont. Co., OH, Francis Dils [Jr.] brought of brother John his 1/11th part. Defendants heirs of John Dils of Allen Co., OH, minors.

         "Washington and Miami townships border Warren County.  Washington Twp. is his home in 1820, and I believe that's where he was part owner of Farmers and Mechanics Manufacturing Company of Centerville."

from "A Sense of Place," published by the Centerville Historical Society: arrived in Washington Township, Montgomery Co., OH, by 1800; owned "233. 94 acres: range 6, township 1, section 3, N pt. W 1/2 lot 1, originally entered Dec. 30, 1811; Cert #4923";

from Dilts researcher Sally Gordon in San Jose, CA:

        "I researched the deed records in the recorder's office in Anderson, IN, a couple of summers ago, and copied out the deed, below. This is in settlement of Barbara's lawsuit. It shows who were Francis' heirs -- namely, his children and the children of son Cornelius Dils who had predeceased him.

        "However, this deed omits mention of Francis' son John, who d. Feb. 1838, leaving 4 children in the Wood/Lucas Co. area of OH; technically, John was an heir, too. He is mentioned in the OH records of the lawsuit, which Barbara filed after John Dils had died."

also from Sally--Will of Francis Dilts from Book 6, p. 1-4:

[Note: "Diltz" is used for Francis' Dils' children and "Dils" for Cornelius Dils' children). I italicize the names of Cornelius Dils' children.]

        "By this deed it is witnessed that Peter Diltz, William Diltz, Elizabeth Taylor (late Elizabeth Diltz) with Stephen Taylor, her husband, Mary Carter (late Mary Diltz) with Edmund Carter, her husband, Catherine Doty (late Catherine Diltz) with Benjamin Doty, her husband, Margaret Newman (late Margaret Diltz) with John Newman, her husband, all of the state of Indiana, also Adam Diltz of the county of Lucas, Ohio, Francis Diltz of the county of Miami, Ohio, Rich. Diltz of the county of Montgomery, Ohio, William T. Dils, Jane Dils, Joseph Dils, Mary Ann Dils (the last being children of Cornelius Dils, Deceased) of the county of Montgomery, Ohio, and Margaret Craig [sic] (late Margaret Dils) with William Creager, her husband, being another of the children of Cornelius Dils, deceased, of the county of Miami, Ohio (the above-named persons all being heirs at law of Francis Dils, late of Montgomery County, Ohio, and constituting the party of the first part, to this deed for the consideration of three hundred dollars, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, do grant, convey, and confirm to Barbara Dils and her heirs and assigns forever, all of that certain tract of land known as the East half of the North East quarter of Section number twenty-one (21) in Township number nineteen (19) North of Range number Eight (8) East, containing eighty acres lying and being in the State of Indiana and all claim and title in law or equity, of them (the said party of the first part) __ to the said premises, -- together with Jane Dils, wife of the said William Dils...[the remainder is a description of the consideration for the property and $300, namely, the release of Barbara Dils' dower rights]

Dated: Oct. 24, 1838."

in book entitled "Official Roster of the Soldiers of the American Revolution Buried in the State of Ohio," Mrs. C.E. Gilliatt of Seymour, IN, records that Francis Dills/Dilts/Diltz, Sr., was Revolutionary War veteran, that he served on the PA line and that he was born in 1755 in PA.

from Bob Dils:

         "My gggrandfather, a son of Henry Dils who was a brother of Francis, William Henry Dils was a co-executor of Francis' estate. William Henry then was a nephew of Francis. Up to and including Francis the surname was spelled Dils. However, at least several sons of Francis altered the spelling to 'Dilts.' "

Cause of Death: Asiatic cholera

from "People and Sites of Red Lion" by local historian Bogan:

         'Cholera, an unknown disease at the time, broke out in the community in 1835 with Samuel Gustin as the first fatality. Cause of the disease was presumably to have come from victims eating fish from the Miami Canal near Franklin. Apparently the water supply in the canal diminished and the fish soon perished. Folks from miles around took them home and used them for food. The doctors were unable to do much for the victims during this time.'

27. WILLIAM7 DILTS (FRANCIS6, PETER5 DILS, HENRICH4 DILTS, WILHELM3 DILSS, JOHANN WILHELM2, WILHELM1) was born May 13, 1793 in Lancaster, PA, and died February 10, 1874 in Chesterfield, IN. He married JANE GUSTIN March 01, 1815 in Red Lion, Warren Co., OH, daughter of BENAJAH GUSTIN and ELEANOR BUNTON. She was born September 1791 in Pennsylvania, and died April 04, 1876 in Chesterfield, Madison Co, IN.

Notes for WILLIAM DILTS:

        The first white settler in Monroe Twp., Delaware Co., IN. 1 1/2 mile NE of Daleville. He came with Thomas Gustin, brother of Richard Dilts's wife Mary.

        William Dilts (1793 - 1874), Richard was older brother. William married Jane

        from Montgomery & Warren Cos., OH, William & Jane were pioneers in Chesterfield, after 1819;

        Madison Co., IN. (Richard and Mary probably moved to area because Dilts and Gustin families already here. Jane Howe, Mary's mother, may have come with them at this time after 1840.)

        William and Jane built a brick hotel/house 1833, the first travelers inn in Madison Co., IN. Present private owners have refurbished it in period.

 

 

infor from "The Pioneers of Madison and Hancock Counties," by Samuel Harden, 1895; "History of Madison County," Kingman Bros. 1880; "Anderson Daily Bulletin" article series 'Man About Town,' starting November 21, 1956;

from Anderson, IN, newspaper, series "Man About Town," Wednesday, November 21, 1956:

        'Time has nearly ended the monument erected in memory of the first white pioneer settler of what is now Union Township. In fact he may have been the first white man to settle in Madison County, tradition to the contrary, and he was the first to live out his life here.

        'William Dilts lived to see the county change from a place where Indians yet were present to a place where thousands of people lived, from a time of uncertain dim trails to the age of the railroad. And he, himself, became a big owner of the lands and head of a family which now numbers hundreds in this area alone.

        'He died February 11, 1874, and was buried in the old Otterbein Cemetery just east of the county farm. He was buried as was the due of a man of means and his monument was tall. but in only the last few years vandals upset the upper portion of his stone, and now young trees are destroying the base, hereby shown, on which are inscribed the name of William Dilts that of his wife, Jane (Gustin) Dilts.

        'Wiliam was born in Lancaster County, PA, May 13, 1793, the son of Francis Jr., [sic] and Marguerite Dilts. The name then was spelled with a "z" as Diltz. The family probably was numbered among the refugees from the Rhine Valley. He moved with his parents to Warren County, Ohio, in the early 1800s. In Ohio he married Jane Gustin. She was born in September 1791, in New Jersey and died in Union Township April 4, 1876. Time has almost wiped her name off the stone.

        'William Dilts is not listed in the Ohio records for 1820, and it may have been that he was in Union Township in 1819 or most certainly, the next year. Madison County was not formed as early as 1820, so he is not in the state census for year. He cleared land and established a home on Mill Creek where Chesterfield is now...

         'Jane Gustin whose daughter married a Makepeace, goes back in her ancestry to Lawrence Makepeace, purchaser of Sulgrave Manor from his relative Lawrence Washington, who goes back in family ties to about 1,000 A.D. She is directly related to Sir William de Hertburn, Norman knight, who became Sir William de Wesyngton, ancestor of the Washington family.

        '...About 1835, maybe somewhat earlier, he built the famous brick inn, now on the south side of Ind. 32, a short distance east of Chesterfield. This was the first brick structure in the township and the finest inn in the county. At that time it was at the forks of the road, one leading east and another since closed, to the southeast. The house yet stands, but Dilts' stone is nearly lost.'
