HISTORY OF THE GEARHART FAMILY
BY WILLIAM W. GEARHART JAN. 8th, 1931
Right here I must tell you a little story they told me. Grandmother Rebecca McPherson Gearhart was a bound girl. Grandfather was a hired man at the same place. One day Grandmother went to get a pail of water at a deep spring or shallow well which was large around. She fell in. Grand-father saw her in the water, got to the spring just as she was going down the third time, caught her by the hair, and saved her. In time after, they were married. When Grandfather was married, they moved to Nazareth, Northampton County, PA.
