A bit of research I was doing turned up a little mystery and I could use some help.
We'll start with Samuel Walters.
Born Pennsylvania, 08/30/1833
Moved west, Married, Marietta Rollins
and died 12/24/1924 In Iowa.
What I'm looking for is more information on his parents. All I have to go on is what's on his death record.
They are listed as JOHN WALTERS and Betsey WOMMER or WOUNER(Note: her last name is possibly misspelled).
Here is the reference for the death record, you can see the image yourself.
"Iowa, Death Records, 1921-1940," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q248-MJ6G : 8 November 2017), Samuel Walters, 12 Dec 1924, Iowa, United States; citing certificate #45409, State Historical Society of Iowa, Des Moines; FamilySearch digital folder 101784549.
All else I can discern from them is their places of birth. According to Samuel's 1900 census record, his parents were both born in Pennsylvania.
I can guess roughly guess their ages, based on the birth of Samuel, 1833, so I would guess sometime between 1790 and 1820.
Now as to where they are from in Pennsylvania, I do have a bit of circumstantial evidence that they may have been from somewhere near or in Buffalo Valley, which contains the counties of Union and Northumberland.
I was hoping I could find them in the 1850 census, but no luck. Perhaps someone could help me dig something up about these two people.
Any help would be appreciated.
