Neil Hergesheimer

I was born in a small farmhouse in Cedonia, Washington on July 25, 1922 to Andy and Elsie Hergesheimer. I joined brothers Fay, Gib and a sister Inez. My brothers were not happy the day I was born as they didn’t get to go pick huckleberries with their cousins! My parents farmed and I grew up loving the outdoors and my family. I attended school in Hunters, Washington, graduating in 1940.
I grew up loving horses and riding as soon as I could sit in a saddle. We farmed with horses and I spent many days walking behind a “foot burner” plow and putting up hay. I attended the Cedonia Church.
