I have been researching diShong, along with other families from Fulton Co, PA. diShong the original spelling DIJON, from the french (Alsace Lorraine) the father being Pierre von Dijon of Deirdorf, Germany, circa 1710. The name was changed in Philadelphia by a immigration officer who wrote the name incorrectly. These families are, diShong, Mellott, Traux. These people were French Huganates, who settled first in Philadelphia and then moved to the Licking Creek area of Bedford Co., (now Fulton County). Hope this helps you ladies.
