Some data on my VonNeida genealogy. While doing some of my research, I came across several stories about a John Vonneida, known as Hairy John, and supposedly some relation of mine, although I haven't been able to verify this. Hairy John lived by a large spring along the road from Hartleton to Aaronsburg. This area subsequently became a state park named Hairy John's. I have included the two stories (legends) about Hairy John which have some similarity but differences also, showing how stories can change as told by different sources.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to share or correct any information on this VonNeida line.
