Yes, this is my direct line. I'm proud to be able to say that I'm a descendent of both Madame Ferree and Hans Herr! Unfortunately, like so much info, it is inaccurate. The family never lived in Canton, Ohio. Joel Ferree and his wife, Mary Bressler, moved from Strasburg, PA to what is now the tiny village of Salona, PA in 1794. Unfortunately, both died in 1801 or 1802. Their farm, the Deep Spring Farm, was then sold off in lots to become the village of Salona. The Herr historian got his/her Mary's confused. The children all continued to live in what is now Clinton County, PA on land that "Grandpa Bressler" had purchased.
