Sophia WALTER was born about 1722, probably in Lower Merion PA, on the west side of the Schuylkill River from Philadelphia where the WALTER family had been established for several generations. She married Johann Jacob AMOS on 1 Dec 1747 at St. Michael's Lutheran Church in Philadelphia PA. The will of her first cousin Abraham WALTER, written 24 May 1789, mentions the "children of my cousin Sophia Amos, deceased", indicating Sophia had died by that time, and that she had multiple children still alive as of 1789.
