GRESH, professor of music, was born in Montour County, Pennsylvania, April 22, 1852, son of Jesse and Mary (Derr) Gresh, natives of Berks county, who came to Northumberland county about 1832, located in Chillisquaque township, and afterwards removed to Montour county, where they lived until 1877. The mother died in 1869 and the father died in Milton in 1884. He was an elder in the Lutheran church for many years.
