"6118 (Shoemaker, 5124; old number, 5118)
Peter Dedier, a farmer, lived here in 1809. Mr. Charles Haupt gives the following account of this property:--'This property belonged to the Dediers. It was for many years occupied by old Squire Reaver, who served a long time as justice of the peace...'
"Along side of this house was a smaller one in which Caspar Moyer
lived in 1809, and where Mary Moyer kept a little store. She
hung out the following unique sign:--
|'I, Mary Moyer,|
Keep Cakes and Beer.
I make my sign a little wider
To let you know I sell good cider.'
