PETER HIDERSHIDE was born in Luxemburg, Germany, in 1842, arriving in America and coming direct to Mt. Vernon
in 1857, when he purchased from Mr. Pomeroy the farm he now occupies in Trout valley. When he took up his residence
in Trout valley there were very few settlers near him, and he may be considered one of the first to break ground
in this fertile valley. Mr. Hidershide has never married. He is a Roman Catholic in religion and a democrat in
politics. He enjoys the respect and esteem of his neighbors to a marked degree.
