Bio and Links
I live in central Pennsylvania. I have been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. Most of my research is on the descendants of German immigrant J. Adam Bohlender but I have also served as the K/Catherman Reunion Association genealogist since 1999. Since retiring in 1994 I have traveled tens of thousands of miles to do original research in courthouses, cemeteries and libraries.
I have made every effort to be sure that the information I post is accurate but I'm not perfect so if you see something that you think might be incorrect please contact me. I will also be happy to provide sources for any information I have posted.
Note: Many of the births and deaths I have recorded are attributed to Snyder County, Pennsylvania. Researchers should be aware that Snyder County was not created until 1855. From 1813 through 1854 it was part of Union County. From 1772 through 1812 it was part of Northumberland County.

RE: Alexander Hood
I don't think so, but it sure would make for a great bio.

Oops, I was mistaken about the large family stone ... it was for a different family. Jenean

You are very welcome! I was actually back at Greenwood today and noticed a family stone that I did not see when I was there earlier. I will post that as well this evening. Jenean

Brian Walter
Isaiah Walter
Hi Carl. My name is Brian Walter. I just returned from a trip to Germany and was inspired to trace down my heritage as a result of the trip. I managed to gather a wealth of information thanks to a well-written book on the Shambach family. My heritage traces up through to Isaiah Walter (born in 1851) whose gravestone is found in the Salem United Methodist Cemetery in Snyder County, PA. Here is where I have run into a challenge. Most information that I've found indicates that Isaiah's father was Emanuel Walter (husband of Hettie). However, Hettie apparently had later married Ephraim Walter. It's unclear as to Isaiah's real father. I looked up the 1860 census and much to my surprise, Isaiah (9 years old at the time) was listed under both Emanuel AND Ephraim. I searched the 1870 census and found the same thing...he was listed under both Emanuel AND Ephraim. If you see the photo of Hettie's gravestone, it says that she was the wife of Emanuel and the second wife of Ephraim (whose first wife was Matilda). Since your name was on Isaiah's site, I thought I would start with you to see if we both can figure this one out. Who is the real father of Isaiah Walter? If we can answer that one, I believe I can trace my ancestry back to the year 1500. Thanks for the help. Brian Walter (son of Bernard Lawrence Walter, son of Bernard Walter, son of Warren Walter, son of Isaiah Walter, son of ?)

RE: Samuel Shambaugh
You are welcome. I visited the Shambaugh Cemetery recently to find the grave of my 3d Great Grandmother Maria Catharine Shambaugh Walter. I found her grave although the headstone was toppled. I tried to fulfill some photo requests while there. I probably missed some other obvious ones but I was glad to get quite a few.

I was up at SVC today and was only able to find a family headstone in the plot where it's recorded they are buried. I'll upload the photo to their pages tomorrow, but I wasn't sure if you'd feel that the request was filled, so feel free to remove it after if you want to.
