$19.95Price

An 1815 water access deed between the Reverend John Landis Hess II (1768-1830) and Michael Bear (Baer)(1744-1821) both of Warwick Township, Lancaster County, PA. This land was first owned by the Reverend Christian Landis Hess (1757-1816), a Revolutionary War soldier, and his wife Ann Nissili Hess (1760-1816) by Indenture in 1790.  Michael Bear was the great-uncle of the Reverend John Hess II and the reverend Christian Hess through their mother, Susanna Groff (Landis) Hess (1738-1778) so this was a family affair with John Hess giving his great-uncle access to the Mill Pond that supplied water to Bear's land that once belonged to John's brother Christian. The entire Hess, Bear, and Landis families were Swiss Mennonites with all of their flat grave stones still in the Lancaster County, PA area.
