am new at this but curious about my father's roots. His name was edgar esher huff and we always wondered where 'esher' came from ! He actually met a man with the exact name in trenton , N.J. about 15 yrs ago. My dad is in Heaven now so can't ask him all those ?'s I am ready to wonder about!
He was born in Germantown, Pa. on N. Gratz St. I believe in 1908. His dad died when he was 9 from internal injuries sustained when 'cranking' someones model T for them. His mother was Lillian Margaret McCormick who I believe had a brother, John. We have a saber marked John Lawerence Huff from the civil war. That is also the name of one of my brothers.
We always wondered about 'esher' and it sounds like it is a 'town' name from England. Please contact me if youhave any info to help us out! Thanx. Libby (Huff) Dreisbach
