NOTE: The spelling of Hersperger was with a "P" while married to Aaron Bucher Hersberger's first wife, Amanda. When Aaron remarried, his second wife changed the spelling to a "B". So all the children from his first marriage spell it Hersperger and all the children from the second marriage spell it Hersberger. ~Info provided by Aaron's great-granddaughter, Sally.

However, Maurice's WWI and WWII Draft spell it with a "P"
