Duvald/DeWalt Kaltreider, m. Elizabeth Catherine/ York Co. Pa. 1700s
Looking for details of Duvald/DeWalt Kaltreider/ Kaltenreider's life (possibly referred to on the Caltrider Genforum page as Johann Theobald (Duvald) Kaltreider).Is he the same as the 'Theobald' son of Johannes (Hans) George Kaltenreider that Mike Beard refers to on the Ancestry.com message board?? (Where are you Mike???) In His 2001 message, Mike refers to their immigration via the ship "Friendship" landing in 1741.?? Any documentation or proofs?? ANCESTRY??
I come down by way of Duvald and wife Elizabeth Catherine ______(unknown maiden name) Kaltreider'/Kaltenreider's daughter, Caterina who married George Petry in York Co. Pa.The name and spelling variations appear to be numerous.
We know nothing of him or his ancestors and there is a group searching by long distance (I live in California.... many miles from the actual Pa. area) for his ancestors. I am looking for ANYTHING and of course Everything including details of their lives, origins, ancestors, immigrations (and reasons), relationships, occupations, pictures, legal details, stories/legends/scandals, war records, and religions. I assume he was German Baptist Bretheren from the fact that the husband and the descendents of Caterina were. The York County Pa. Miller/Petry/Stump/Wherlys were a very close knit group of "Dunkards" (the Bretheren, like the Amish and the Mennonites were offshoots of the original Swiss Anabaptist reaction to the early Reformation in Switzerland) that included a large mixed family group that immigrated to Preble Co. Ohio together in the 1830s from York Co. Pa.)My Stump line is also probably Swiss/German in origin.
We are desperate for details, especially proofs/documentations..... and Anything that makes these folk more three dimensional.
Thanks so much,
