Jacob  Berry Biography

Jacob Berry and his brother Peter appear to have been among the first settlers in Brush valley. Their names appear in the church records as early as 1797. They had a small store about the year 1813 or 1814, near where Reuben Gramly now lives, about a mile and a half east of Rebersburg.

Jacob was assessed with a distillery in 1803. It was situated near the spring south of Mr. John Bressler's present home. Jacob owned a tract of over a hundred acres, which lay between the present homes of Jefferson Royer and Reuben Gramly, -a tract owned at different periods by Jacob Walter, William Krape, Jacob Long, and Francis Gramly, Sr. The Berrys, lived also at Rebersburg during its earlier history. There seem to be no representatives left in the valley.
