I cannot help directly however here's one place to look.
St. Michael's Church in Philadelphia has births recorded for
at least five Dietz families. My source records for St Michaels
only goes to 1780 but I believe the LDS may have later ones.
Also, the book Pennsylvania births, Philadelphia County has Dietz
birth both at St. Michaels Lutheran in Philadelphia and at St. Michael's
in Germantown. I will dig through my Old Philly records to see if
anything else pops up. I can send you the family names (given)via
e-mail if you are interested ... i.e. if you find Suzanna in a later
birth record and want earlier siblings I may have the info.

Is your Peter (born around 1730) the Johan Peter whose wife was Anna Maria and had at least four children christened at St. Michael's; Anna Barbara (1766), Johan Bastian (1768) Johan Peter (1772), and Elizabeth (1775 - Eliz. with a different mother)? If so I'm VERY interested in any info you have on the Dietz men who attended St. Michael's. My line is from Johan Friedrich Dietz. Peter, Friedrich, Henrich, Georg, Wilhelm, Martin, and Philip all had children christened there between 1750 and 1780. I have been trying to determine the relationship between these men. St. Michael's roots start around the time these men appear there (but they do not appear to have come to America at the same time). If this is your Peter then we have a common search ground.
