Would like to help you, but need more info. Benjamin and Christian were common manes and without dates or other info it would be difficult to know which family this is.
I have a large database on Hersheys from York and Lancaster Counties.

Hi-I am hoping that you can help me. My search has led me to the Hershey family and I saw your post. From the 1880 Lancaster census: Elizabeth Hershey, widow, age 44
William 22, crippled hand, fireman on RR
Annie 20
Minnie 14
Jennie 11
George Ewing 25, fireman on RR
Next entry:
Christian Hershey 78, Tax Collector
I believe Annie m. George Ewing, they would be my gggrandparents.
Minnie m. Bernard Gillman and lived in Lancaster with Elizabeth Hershey in the 1910 census.
I would appreciate any help or direction that could give me.
Thank You!
