Gershom DeForeest

Gershom DeForeest (1787-1882), the grandson of Isaac DeForeest, born in Somerset Co., NJ, worked as a farmer and came to Mercer County, Pennsylvania, in 1832, having made the trip from New Jersey by team and wagon with his wife, Elenor, and eight children. He was the father of Abram, Samuel, John, Isaac, and William C., Martha, and Catherine.

From the Twentieth Century History of Mercer County, 1909: 

"This truly hard pioneer and excellent gentle­man who blazed his way from the far away coast to the wilderness of Ohio, lies buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Sharon, Pennsylvania."
