1 . P. H. This was undoubtedly Peter Hershberger, the father of Daniel. Peter Hershberger was instantly killed by a falling limb of a tree while on Horseback, riding in company with Dr. Muckenhoupt, who was a doctor and Preacher combined. This happened at a point about 1 1/2 miles S. W. of the present Post Office of Springs. There is a grand daughter of Peter Hershberger still living, Mrs. Tillie Stevanus semi active in body and mind at the age of 91 years, as she knows about this only as a matter of tradition, it must have happened more than 100 years ago. This is the most remote ancestor that I have information about of the large number of Hershbergers in this section and in states farther west. .
