Biography

Jacob Walter was born in 1826. Other records place his birth in 1829. Three of his children died in infancy, Jane and Sarah are among their number. It is possible he fought in the Mexican-American War. Jacob Walter also may have fought in the US Civil War[1][2]. However a transcription of the 1910 US Census does not list him as a veteran. Jacob Walter died in 1912.

DNA

There is a DNA relationship between George Diehl and Christopher Douglas. George's family tree is all up on MyHeritage and the only place the two trees intersect is the Leiby family. George is also on 23andMe and he matches there also. Chris Douglas's grandmother Dorothy Driscoll also shows up on 23andMe as a match to George, with a relationship of 4th to 6th cousins. The only place her tree appears to intersect with George is, once again, the Leiby family.

If the matching test takers are more distantly related than third cousin, triangulation is required before marking any relationships 'confirmed with DNA' based on the matches. See the general instructions for DNA confirmation here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA_Confirmation

and the specific information about using triangulation here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Triangulation Your DNA confirmation statement doesn't contain sufficient information to mark any relationships 'confirmed with DNA' so I've changed them to 'confident'.
