I am Paul Ishman. My grandfather was Joseph (Pup) Ishman of Emerickville, PA. I believe his brother was Hiram Ishman. My great grand father was (Little) Joseph Ishman ( I think had 5 children). Little Joe had 7 (?) brothers. He married an Indian Squaw and settled on some land in Emerickville (Go down Ishman Road approx 1 mile old white two story farmhouse was family home. Original log cabin on river below current home. Old grave yard in Emerickville has family stone reading "Isthmann" or something like that (hard to read). Probably original "Ishmans" to area in late 1700's. Possibly name changed at this time. This was all in Jefferson County Pa.
