Beachy (Bietche) Farm late 1700s

This picture was taken from the farm lane of one of the two farms purchased by Peter (I) and Peter (II) after they relocated to the Springs area in the late 1700s. This farm lies along the Mason-Dixon line. The state line between PA and MD. The view is from PA looking down into the valley which is in MD. Photo submitted by Leland Joel Beachy.

The descendants of Joel D. and Annie (Hershberger) Beachy met in Garrett County Maryland in August 2007 for a reunion and a history tour of local points of interest in the Springs, PA and Grantsville, MD area. Thanks Leland for sharing this information with us. For more information about the Beachy (Bitsche) name read the header at the top of this blog.
