Hi Pearl! I met you about 5 years ago on the Walter Genforum, and our family trees cross [Anna Margaretha Walter married (1863) Frederick Dauner].You mentioned in your recent posting that your ancestor Philip Dauner came from Bavaria. Do any of your Dauner ancestors come from Freckenfeld, where my Walter ancestors are from? Freckenfeld -- now in Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhinland-Palatinate), Germany, was formerly in Bavaria and also in Alsace (France). I was contacted through the Walter Genforum by a Dauner researcher, whose Dauner family is from Freckenfeld. His English is not that good (and my German is passable), so I offered to help him out, because he is researching my Freckenfeld Walter family.
