Walter Family in Pennsylvania

+3 votes
I am researching the Walter family also but so far I find no connection.

My interest in the Walter family is John Wilhelm William Walter who was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1786 (d. 1848 Baltimore, Maryland) to Nicholas Walter (born 1744 Germany) and Anna Maria Weber (born 1764 Germany).

If you find any connection, please contact me.

As interested as I am in researching Joseph Lucas Walter II, he and his brothers Karl and Fraz Xavier were the first generation of Walters in Pennsylvania. These three sons of Wendelin Walter immigrated from Niedernau, Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Germany in the 1860s and settled in Western Pennsylvania. Therefore, unfortunately, we have no matches from the 18th Century, but I welcome inquiries from any Walter researcher to whom these names sound familiar.

I would be interested in seeing if we do have some kind of match because there were Walter glass makers in PA and Ohio and NY.  Interestingly my Frederic Walter who came from France in 1846 to NY moved for some unknown reason to St Louis, MO where he married Eva Weber.  Since your Walter married a Weber I wonder if this is some odd coincidence or there is more to this story....
