FARM There is little ICrelder history connected with.the farm. The first Krofder here was Moses, Jr.. very recently deceased, who moved here from the farm on which he had reared his family, along the Colobrook road near Rocherty. Moses built up this farm, on which his. son John now resides, from parts of several original tracts. Ho was careful'to gather to himself the old deeds of these tracts, from which the early history IB gathered. Because of this we think It proper to give the early history of this community In connection with his farm. Here was the old Ensmlnger' estate. It was quite large. It included a triangle of about 47 acres of the present Moses Kreidor farm, south of the Lebanon road, the part of this farm north of the Lebanon road, the Henry Holllnger farm, and the farm yet owned by Samuel Ensminger west of the Annville road, The old Ensmlnger buildings here on Samuel's land were given out by the Farm Journal a few years ago as the oldest farm buildings in this part of the State. The farm house east of the Long Brethren meeting house, on the north side of the road, had been the home of a Gingrich, a clock maker. It later became a Heagy home and Included for a brief time about 57 acres south of the Lebanon road, all now In the farm of Moses Kreider. 17 acres of Heagy laud had been Ensminger land, and 40 acres had been bought of Jacob Grayblll when he was the owner of the present farms of Henry Kreider and of Rev. Sellers, the 40 acres having been taken from the Sellers farm. Now back to early days. The Penns on March 16, 1749, granted to George Peters a tract of 89 acres and 126 perches, called "Pine Grove." It ran by land of one Casper Dealer, thence by land of Jacob Platz, thence by land of Peter Forney, thence by Ulrich Stephen's land, and by land of Peter Reist. It seems that Peters did not make good on this tract, for the Penns on Nov. SI, 1771, resur- veyed it to on Michael Keinort. At this time, 22 years later, it ran by lands of Peter Reist (see our Reist History), by the Dealer lands, now lands of Nicholas Ensminger and Lawrence Secrist. and by lands of Peter Forney nnd Frederick Wunderlich. »At the samu.ttme, Nov. 21, 1771, by the same Patent the Penns conveyed also to "Michael Keinort another tract contiguous to the preceding called "Hickory Field," containing 104 acres, 112 perches, which ,ran algo by lands of Peter Forney, of Lawrence Sccrist and of Peter jJohnston: i But fhose two tracts were not the first holdings of M,iuhael Keinert |n ""- vicinity, for on Oct. 22, 1763. ~- Deetor, Sjf.
