I don't know if there is a connection, but I have Hussey/Hershey line as
well....all I know is that a daughter of Brethren minister unknown
Hussey/Hershey was married to Peter Lyman Foss early 1800s in Hardin County,
Ohio. The family was supposed to originally be from Pa.
Still search for ancestry of Minerva A. Hussey/Hershey
