  • Notes 
    • Francis A. Diller, 27, a farm worker, is listed in the 1880 census living with his wife Emma J, 24, and their son Charles M, 4 months old, born in Maryland in Oct 1879. They were living in the home of her parents, John J and Elizabeth E Fitch. 1880 U.S. Census, Mt. Pleasant, Frederick Cnty, MD (T 9, Roll 510, stamped p. 422).

      By 1900 the family had moved to Ohio, along with Emma's parents, John and Elizabeth Fitch, who lived next door to them. The census lists Emma J, 45, born Feb 1855, living with her husband Francis A. Diller, 47, born Feb 1853. Francis and Emma had been married for 21 years; and Emma had borne 3 children in Maryland, all of whom lived with them: "Mary E"; Charles M, 20, born Oct 1879; and "Hellen E". Francis was a laborer, and his son Charles was a clerk. 1900 U.S. Census, Jackson Twsp, Seneca Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1320, stamped p. 1A). (The written dates and ages of the two girls are suspect. Mary's original entry reads that she was born Oct 1875 and was 16 years old; someone has written "24" over the original 16. Helen's original entry reads that she was born Oct 1882, and was 13 years old; someone has written "1883" over the original, and "17" over the original 13.)

      The 1910 census lists John Fitch, 80, and his wife Elizabeth 76, living with their daughter Emma, 54, and her husband "Frank" Diller, 56, born in Maryland. Frank was employed as an engineer in a flour mill. Also in the home were their grandson-in-law, Claude Shaull, 25, born in Ohio, who was a plumber, and granddaughter Helen Shaull, 27, born in Maryland. 1910 U.S. Census, Liberty Twsp, Seneca Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1229, stamped p. 109).

      The 1930 census lists an extended family. "Frank" A Diller, 75, lived with his wife Emma J, 73. He was an engineer for Loomis Mfg. Co. In the family home were his two daughters and some of their families. Daughter Edith M Moses, 46, lived there with two Ohio-born sons: Robert Moses, 18; and Maxwell F Moses, 11. Edith was the operator of a beauty shop; her son Robert was a salesman in a drug store. Also in the home was daughter Helen E Shaull, 43, and her husband Claude V Shaull, 45, and son Rea M, 16, also born in Ohio. Claude was a potter with the S--?-- Mfg. Co. 1930 U.S. Census, Tiffin, Seneca Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1868, stamped p. 40).
