I just received from another Diehm/Deem researcher some info that might assist you. It was contained in an article titled "Coming to America...", author and publisher unknown. In it it makes reference to the Diehm family that emigrated from Germany thru England and onward to the United States during the early 1700's. In this article it states, "In that mass migration and mixing with the "church people", (Lutherans and Reformed), are found the names of Johan Peter DIEHM, Christian and Peter DIEHM, Hans Adam DIEHM and Johan Adam DIEHM." Johan being my ancestor. All of these people emigrated to the US and landed in Pennsylvania between 1749-1754. About 3000 Germans went to New York where the Governor planned to send them to work making tar and turpentine from pine trees for naval stores. I know it doesn't say much that is specific, but maybe you can find some use of this info.
