Feronica was one of 12 children of Jacob and Maria Miller Haldeman. Her father was an elected member of the Committee of Public Safety for Lancaster County. This civil defense system was charged with protecting the citizenry in the event of invasion or insurrection. Feronica's mother was a great-granddaughter of Hans Herr, one of the original Mennonite settlers in Lancaster County in 1710. It has been estimated that Hans Herr had more than 15,000 descendants by the year 2000.
