Charles Frederick Diehl of Allegheny County, PA
Posted by: Pat MacDonald (ID *****2871) Date: October 17, 2009 at 18:41:34
  of 1461

I had always been told that CF's father was Frederick although now believe it was Henry. The reason is that the obit for CF, 1900 in Aston, Delaware Co. where they had property states he was born in Perryopolis. The only Diehl in that area was Henry, a glassmaker. CF moved to Allegheny as a glassmaker before getting into his other business. Henry later moved to Burmingham, Allegheny Co. where CF's wife Eliza Barr was from. It all fits. Anyone with any thoughts on this? I have all the census records, etc. to back this up.
Also, I have quite a bit of new information on CF's son Charles Albert and his wife Mary Shields, d/o Patrick and Mary Jane.
