Olmstead Ridge

Classification: Query
Surnames: Shepherd
From a Shepherd family history:
"John Shepherd was born on Olmstead Ridge, on the Lancaster road, ten miles from Philadelphia, March 16, 1728. Nothing can be learned in regard to his father and mother; their names and nationality are unknown."

This man is thought the last survivor of Braddock's Defeat. He later fought in Revolution.

My question concerns Olmstead Ridge,mentioned above. Anyone know where this spot is? Does "Lancaster Road" mean the route of US 30?
