large Dillenbeck family crest The Dillenbeck family has been in the United States since 1710 when Jorg Martin Dällenbach came to America. Martin, as he was called, was born about 1690 in "Lauperswil." This small Swiss village is in the Alps mountains a few miles northeast of Bern, Switzerland. Since Martin's arrival, the Dällenbach name has undergone several transformations as the family branched out into the New World. The first change in the name occurred very early (in 1712) when Rev. Joshua Kocherthal, first pastor to the German Lutherans in the colony of New York, recorded the baptism of Martin's daughter Anna Margretha. The father is listed as "Jorg Dillenbach."

Even Rev. Kocherthal was not consistent with his mis-spelling: six months later, he recorded the second marriage of "Joerg Martin Dillenbach."
