Dilliplane Family of New Amsterdam, Germantown, Berks and Montgomery Counties, PA
My immigrant Dilliplane ancestor was Nicholas DeLaPlaine, who was born in 1633 in France. In 1658 in the Dutch Reformed Church at New Amsterdam (now Manhattan) he married Susanna Cresson, daughter of Pierre and Rachel (Clauss) Cresson. She was from Holland. Their oldest son James married Hannah Cook in 1692 and shortly thereafter, moved to Germantown, PA. In the early 1700s he was the coroner of Germantown. James and Hannah had a son Joshua about 1707. Joshua married Maria Shelar. He lived in Earl Township, Berks County, PA. His occupaton was a weaver.
