My Grandfather, Norman E. Rishel, rented the John Emig, Jr. Farm @ 1919.Â His first herd of Holstein is shown in this picture. Perhaps you could add it to your Emigsville archives.
Brief History of the property: “Became the property of his grandfather, Valentine Emig, in 1802; of his father, in 1806, and his own in 1840. At present – in 1876- his son’s, W. W. Emig.” The barn was located along the RR tracks.Â Pass the Post Office, go through the RR underpass, and the barn was on the right in the industrial park.
My Great Grandfather Henry Zumbrun was the stone cutter for the 3 underpasses in the area as well as the wall surrounding the Emig mansion. — Dianne Gleim Bowders-York, PA
