Schumacher and Diller families

With Zimmerly, Steiner, Luginbuhl, Suter, Hilty, Geiger, Welty, Moser and many other local family connections



Within these two family portraits represent a large segment of the Bluffton-Pandora Swiss Settlement.


The photos feature a family of Schumachers and Dillers. However, the larger circle connected with these photos embraces the last names of Zimmerly, Steiner, Luginbuhl, Suter, Hilty, Geiger, Welty, Moser and many other familiar local family names.


Two persons connected in these photos are Lena Diller, who married Menno Schumacher. Links to both families, whose stories are elsewhere in our Swiss Connection follow, as do photo identifications.
