My Dietz line is Frederich -Jacob sr -Jacob jr -Laban - William Hamilton - Joseph - Joseph - me.
I was curious as to your own line.
I also have a different version of the text you quote with Thad's source identified. Also, as you know Catawba did not exist when Jacob jr migrated to the area around Webster ... which is why both my family bible and census entries have Laban born in Lincoln County. Same place but before the subdivide that created Catawba.
Both Jacob jr. and Nancy are buried in the Old Ash cemetary off the Ashe settlement road in Jackson County (was part of Macon County when Jacob moved there).
If interested in comparing notes email me.
