This Photo shows the Berschneider Farm in Summerhill, I believe it's pre 1890's (Berschneiders are my father's, mothers family.) This is the farm my father, Raymond Gibbons spent his summers (pre 1920) while growing up in South Fork. The big guy facing the camera between the two teams of mules is my great-grandfather Henry Berschneider. Next to him is a little old man with a stove pipe beard, that's my great, great grandfather Conrad Berschneider, he immigrated to the Johnstown, Cambria Co. area before 1850 from Bavaria. I located a distant Berschneider cousin last summer while visiting Johnstown who had an original copy of his o-bit from 1907, it had his picture in it because at the time of his death he was the oldest living person in the Johnstown area. The other men in the photo I would guess are Henry's brothers, and the little guy one of their sons.
