This book contains the history of my ancestors. My mother was a Diehl and all the Diehl family that came from Bedford County, PA, settled in and around Mercer County, Illinois. My home is Joy, Illinois and there are still Diehl's living here. I hope to make this book part of my genealogy library before I die. Elaine Adams Anderson
This is an excellent book.
