Compatriot Dale Crandell lives in Kansas City, Missouri. He joined the Sons of the American Revolution and Harry S. Truman Chapter on 15 December 2009, sponsored by Compatriots David McCann and Chester Bare, and installed by Compatriot Dirk Stapleton.  Compatriot Crandell served in the United States Navy, Civil Engineer Corps, and currently works as an engineer for AT&T.

Patriot Frederick Diehl assisted in establishing American Independence as a Private, 8th Class, 2nd Battalion, Pennsylvania Militia.  He served in Capt John Lyle’s Company for Northampton County, Pennsylvania.  His service is documented in the Pennsylvania Archives, 5th Series, Volume 8, page 213, and as DAR Patriot #A034741.

Frederick Diehl was born 05 January 1743, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany; died 13 May 1816, Adams County, Pennsylvania; and is buried at a small family plot located on his family farm, Butler Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania.  A memorial marker for Frederick and his sons who served in the War of 1812 is located at the Marsh Creek Brethren Church, Highland Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania.

Frederick came to America on the ship Snow Squirrel, arriving at Philadelphia on 21 October 1761.  He was an early member of the Brethren Church (anabaptist) and part of Pennsylvania’s Germantown settlement.  He owned farms and built mills in Maryland and Pennsylvania.  One mill is still standing although no longer functional.

Frederick married Mary Magdalena Harley (daughter of Rudolph Harley and Mary Becker) in 1766, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.  She was born on 12 March 1747, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania; and died August 1769, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
