Notes for Benjamin Dygert: Obituary of Benjamin DYGERT Was one of a family of ten children, eight boys and two girls, who with their parents, Adam Dygert and wife, removed from Rochester, N. Y., to Indiana in the year 1838. Before leaving New York the father had purchased and paid for a quarter section of land in what was then the "far west" and had definite plans for making a home amid the forest of northeastern Indiana. When the family arrived in Steuben county, so primeval was the wilderness, they found they would have to construct a road in order to be able to reach their land. Willing hands set to work felling the trees. The mother was left with a settler's family a few miles back on the road, while the father and his sturdy sons, all of whom, save one, were old enough to assist in the work, built the necessary road and erected a log cabin. Quickly this work was done, and soon the family were settled in this pioneer home. The work of clearing the land then began. Jan. 1, 1846, Benjamin Dygert was married to Phoebe A. Carpenter. About this same time his father divided his farm among those of his sons who had not already received substantial benefactions from their father. To Benjamin was given that portion of the original homestead on which the family home was located. In return he gave to his father and mother a lien on the farm for their support during the rest of their lives. Most faithfully was this contract carried out. The father lived but a few years after this adjustment was made, but the mother dwelt with her son and daughter-in-law almost thirty years, dying at the age of 84. To Benjamin Dygert and his wife were born six children. One of these died in infancy and the others together with the mother survive. These children, excepting the youngest daughter, are all married and their homes are within two miles of the old homestead. The house in which the father and mother lived at the time of the former's death was built upon the same ground the first log cabin of his father covered. Two brothers, John and Adam Dygert, are also bereft by Mr. Dygert's death. By hard work, economy and good business ability, Benjamin Dygert accumulated considerable wealth, and at the time of his death was one of the largest land owners in the county. For a number of years before his last illness he was unable to attend to the business of the farm and his financial interests have been in the hands of his son George A., who lived on the farm near his parents. Aug. 9, 1907, at the age of 85 years, 5 months, and 3 days this Steuben county pioneer fell asleep. Widely known, having established a reputation for industry and sagacity, full of years, he has been gathered to his fathers. Funeral services were conducted at the home in the presence of a vast concourse of people, by Elder Vernon Stauffer, Sunday, August 11, 1976. Steuben Republican, August 14, 1907, p.1.

She, with her parents, two sisters and one brother, came to Fulton county Ohio, when she was quite small. When only ten years old, her mother died leaving in her and her older sister's care, the two smaller children all of whom have preceded her to the beyond. When she was about eighteen years old her father came to Indiana and bought the farm now owned by John Roberts, to which he soon moved his family. About one year later, Jan. 1, 1846, there came a double wedding in the new home, Samuel Harvey Elliott and Jane Smiley, and Benjamin Dygert and Phoebe Ann Carpenter. The two families established homes within one-half mile of each other, living there continuously for nearly fifty years. The plans were laid for a double golden wedding which could not be carried out on account of the death of Mr. Elliott only a few months previous to the anniversary day. Mrs. Elliott is now the only one of the four still living. To Phoebe Ann and Benj. Dygert were born six children, one dying in infancy. The others, Manda Ryan, Louisa Clark, George Dygert, Garrett Dygert, and Miss Lanna Dygert, nineteen grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren together with a host of other relatives and friends mourn the loss of a kind and loving mother, grandmother, friend and neighbor. Mr. and Mrs. Dygert lived in their old home for nearly sixty-two years when on Aug. 9, 1907, the husband fell asleep, the wife joining him Aug. 9, 1909, aged 82 years, 7 months and 15 days, having lived the last two years with her son Garrett.

He was county commissioner at the time the present county court house in Angola was built and took great interest in the progress of the work. John, the son of Adam and Jane Dygert, was born in Montgomery county, New York, Feb. 27, 1826, and passed away at his late home in Scott township, Sept. 18, 1919, at the age of 93 years, 6 months and 23 days.

September, 1853, he united in marriage with Caroline Stotts, of York township. To this union were born two children, Charles F., and Sarah Jane Gifford. In 1875 after great suffering the wife and mother passed away leaving the father to keep the home together until 1878, when the daughter was united in marriage to Jackson Nisonger.

He has been a resident of Scott township for the past sixty years living until the end on the farm he purchased soon after his first marriage. Although without professed religion he was a Christian in the true sense of the word, always doing as he would be done by. He had a large heart for the needy never turning anyone from his door. As his life work has been finished he has received his eternal reward. He was a kind and loving husband and father always thinking of the welfare of his family. He leaves to mourn their loss a wife, five children, three daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, ten grandchildren, three great grandchildren and a host of sorrowing friends. Although physically weak he was mentally active until the end. He was a patient sufferer always looking on the bright side of life. When the end came he went peacefully to sleep and to his eternal resting place. Funeral services were held at the late home conducted by Rev. Humfreys and burial in the Dygert cemetery.

She married Lewis Blaine Hershey, Lt. Gen.1 29 Nov 1917 in Jackson, Hinds County, Mississippi1, son of Latta Hershey and Rosetta Richardson. He was born 12 Sep 1893 in Angola, Steuben County, Indiana1, and died 05 May 1977 in Section 7 of Arlington Cemetery, Washington, D.C.1. More About Ellen Dygert: Burial: Unknown, Section 7 of Arlington National Cemetery1 Notes for Lewis Blaine Hershey, Lt. Gen.: [CLINT DYGERT LINAGE.FTW] Lewis Hershey served on the Joint Army and Navy Selective Service Committee, from 1936 to 1940, developing plans for the World War ll draft. He became Director of the Selective Service System during the Vietnam War and,as such, became the focal point for many who opposed that war.He held that post until 1970 when he was subsequently removed from that position by President Richard Nixon who then named him to be a Presidential advisor and promoted him to full General. He refused to retire on his own and the Army involuntarily retired him in April of 1973. When he died on May 5, 1977 he was buried in Section 7 of Arlington Cemetery next to his wife Ellen Dygert Hershey. Her stone reads: " Beloved wife for 60 years. Adviser and counselor for 70 years." The Self-made Man: Lewis B. Hershey by Sir Knight John D. Meyers, Jr., KYCH Lewis B. Hershey was born on September 12, 1893, in his parents' home on their farm near Angola, Indiana, that is located in Steuben County, which is nestled in the extreme northeastern part of the Hoosier state. It is bound on the north by Michigan and on the east by Ohio. The General declared humorously, "If Michigan had taken four miles off of Indiana like they did from Ohio. I would have been born in Michigan." The second and younger son of Latta Freleigh and Rosetta (Richardson) Hershey and grandson of George R. and Joanna Latta (Freleigh) Hershey and Lewis and Frances (Hutchins) Richardson, his Swiss ancestors migrated to the United States in 1709, settling near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. "In our day, the 'horse-poor farmer eked out a meager, but substantial living on an austerity type budget. Laboring in a 12-15 hour working day, which started before dawn and lasted until long after dusk, seven days a week. This was the kind of work schedule the farmer and his family endured in our day." In addition to the farmhouse, barn and smokehouse, the Hershey homestead comprised some 140 acres of land of which less than 100 were actually farmed. Forty acres contained marshland, timber and two lakes. Another six acres located on steep slopes made this ground untenable. Before the age of ten, young Lewis had already learned the expressions "gee" and "haw" (horse language for right and left). He was plowing, mowing, raking, harrowing, and cultivating the fields, and he was driving the horse team with the dexterity of an adult. The General declared that two distinctive characteristics typified the people of Steuben County around the turn of the century. "First," he said, "we all believed in work-hard work and long working hours. Second, we learned early in life how important it is to rely on a person's word. We would never take a man's note if you couldn't trust his word. We took oufrneighbor's word at face value, because we knew his background and we believed there was validity to his word." General Hershey married his childhood sweetheart, Ellen Dygert of Angola, on Thanksgiving Day, November 29, 1917, in Jackson, Mississippi, while he was stationed at Camp Shelby. The reason their marriage was not announced publicly was that she was nursing at the Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. The release of this information would have put her status in jeopardy, since their marriage was forbidden during this phase of her training. The daughter of George and Emily Dygert, Mrs. Hershey was born on September 7, 1892. She attended Angola High School and Tri-State College. In response to inquiry about the general's choice of following a military career, Mrs. Hershey said: "I'd been in the Philippines where my uncle was Vice Governor General, and I'd met the Army out there. I was enchanted with the Army life... and I wanted my husband to stay in the service. So that's what Lewis did and we've never regretted it." Mrs. Hershey lived in the Philippines with her uncle the Honorable Newton W. Gilbert, from September 1913 until July 1914. While there, she taught first grade pupils in the Bishop Charles Henry Episcopal School for Girls. More About Lewis Blaine Hershey, Lt.
