For some of you that are against a brick wall on the Wallen/Walling this could be another avenue of search.I hope it helps someone, although I know not all Wallen/Walling descend from this line.
Jacob Walich came to America in early 1600.The Walich name then evolved into Wallen/Walling/Wallingen and many other spellings following the Dutch naming culture.
Jacob Walich was originally from the village of Winkel, Holland (Netherlands).He became known as Walich from Winkle or Walich Van Winkle in Dutch. This family was part of the original fourteen Patentees of New Jersey.All but one of these fourteen families are said to be related.
I have started the Wallen/Walling research with hopes of possibly finding more descendents of Jacob Walich and the missing relatives of my ancestor known as Jesse Van Winkle born 1775 VA.
