In Reply to: Philip Diehl, Born 1763, New York by PHILIP SCAGLIONE of 1461


I think this might be about my GGGGG grandfather. The family, as I've seen has gone from Diehl to Dahle to Dale. (My grandmother was a Dale) Here is section from a history of Clarion County, PA about Ruben Jackson Dale who (I think) was Philip Diehl's grandson. If you know he died in Clarion maybe you have seen this already. I'll post it for anyone else to see.

Dahle, Reuben J., Elk City p. o., Elk, is a farmer, and was born in Elk township on February 17, 1828. He was a son of Jacob and Sarah (Crousehoar) Dahle. His paternal grandfather, Philip Dahle, settled in Elk in 1820. His children were George, John, Peter, Jacob, David, Daniel, and Philip. The children of Jacob were Maria, Lavina, Urias S., Reuben J., Sarah, Lucinda, George W., Clara A., and Franklin. Reuben J. Dahle was married in 18-- to Margaret Thompson. They have had a family of six children -- Nancy, Thomas, Andrew, Mahal, Clara A., and Ida. Margaret was a daughter of Thomas E. Thompson, of Beaver.

Elk Township in 1820 was part of Venango County. It is also where my Dad was raised. I come from Reuben J./Margaret Thompson's line, then their son Thomas who are mentioned above. However I know nothing about the other lines of the Dale family.

I know nothing beyond Philip other than that he was father to Jacob. There is one note in the family tree that says he (Jacob) came to Elk township in 1819 which is only a year off from the Clarion County History note.

I had no other information about Philip but your message seems to fit him.

Anything you can tell me that you may have found out would be great.

Thanks, Richie
