  • Notes 
    • He moved to Derry Township, Dauphin Co., Pa to farm land owned by his father, Andrew Hershey. In May, 1792, he and his family moved from Derry Twp. to Salisbury Twp., Lancaster County, PA to join a new community of Mennonites who were purchasing land from the original English settlers of that township. These original settlers were moving elsewhere. The Mennonite congregation that grew out of this settlement was originally called Hess and later, Hershey. A memorial monument to this family stands in the cemetery where they are buried.
