My DIEM family is as follows:

Andreas DIEM came from Germany, Sept.17, 1753
aboard the Richard & Mary. Wife's name was Anna Margaretha Borger. They had at least 3 children, Johan Diem, Hans Adam Diem and Johann Sebastion Diem. Sebastion Diem was my ggggg grandfather and lived in Berks Co. He was married to Catarina Galvesin? and they had the following children:

John Diem Sr. b. 1776 married Catharine Kennedy. Moved to Lancaster Co. Salisbury twp.

Sebastion Diem
Peter Diem m. Elizabeth
poss. Jacob Diem m. Catharine

John Diem was born 1776 d. Feb., 1853 in Lanc. Co. Salisbury twp. He married Catherine Kennedy. They had following children:

Elias Diem b. 12/19/1802 m. Margaret
Mary Diem b. 9/3/1804 m. John Andrew
John Diem Jr. b.1806 m. Sarah Lampert
William Diem b. 7/27/1809 m. Maria Moyer
George Diem b. 12/7/1910 m. Mary
Kennedy Diem b. 1813 m. Esther

Many of the Diems in Lancaster Co. come from John & Catherine Kennedy Diem. I am looking for 2 things. 1. anyone who is related to this Diem family above. 2. The Whereabouts of the father of John, Sebastion Diem. There is a possibility that he went to Franklin Co. with his son Sebastion. May have found him in the 1830 census for Franklin Co. Warren twp. I am very very interested in anyone with information on Diems in Franklin Co. My e-mail address is
