I am a descendent of William Hershey of Patterson Creek. He was born around the mid 1700s. I believe he may have been the son of John Hersha/Horsha. I have found deed information which may place John in the Patterson Creek Mt. area around that time. (1) Isaac Vanmeter asne. of Robert Davidson asne. of John Hersha, 100A in Patterson Cr. Mt. on Hersha's Run. (2) William Stingley asne. of John Horsha, 100A adj to Martin Hawk. The term "asne" means assignee. If any one has information on John or his family, I would be grateful.
