About Melchior Erisman

Melchior ERISMAN born: 1699, Rued, Aargau, Switzerland, died in 1740 in Lancaster, PA. Melchior was a Swiss Mennonite who most likely came from the Palatinate in Germany. An allotment of 675 acres of land along the Conestoga Creek was made to Hans Tuber, Isaac Coffman, and "Melkerman" in 1717. A misprint occurred in this record and "Melkerman" appears instead of Melchior Erisman. Melchior is listed among those taxable in the Conestoga Rate for the years 1718 through 1726 when what is now Lancaster Co was still a part of Chester Co. His name is spelled various ways in these records, including Arisman, Irishman and Erishman. Melchior died intestate in 1740.

He was married to Edith (Odey). Their childern were: Addey, Barbara, Mary, Anne, Magdelena, JACOB, Daniel, & Elizabeth.
