    The Waltman Family of Northampton County, By Neil A. Boyer, 12 Jun 2009

    Valentine Waltman lived in Northampton County. At one time, he owned property close to Zion Church in Kreidersville, and later he lived in the Schoenersville area, near the property known in 2007 as Lehigh Valley International Airport. He was a Second Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War and apparently was a leader of the Waltman family and of his community. There is dispute over when he was born. LaMance said it was 1742, and this date has been copied by some other students of the family. However, genealogist Hannah Roach and others thought it might have been before 1733, since Valentine?s first wife, Catharina Br

    Valentine married Catherine Brucker in 1755. Catherine (daughter of Jacob Brucker and Madeliene) was born on 21 Feb 1732 in Petersbach, Alsace, France; died on 18 May 1786 in Schoenersville, Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania, USA. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  8. 27.  Catherine Brucker was born on 21 Feb 1732 in Petersbach, Alsace, France (daughter of Jacob Brucker and Madeliene); died on 18 May 1786 in Schoenersville, Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania, USA.

    Notes:

    The Waltman Family of Northampton County, By Neil A. Boyer, 12 Jun 2009

    There has been confusion about the date of Valentine?s birth and the name of his wife and children. LaMance claimed that Valentine was married to Catherine Bieber (or Beaver), and that they had seven children, including Peter Waltman (born in 1779). But LaMance had a number of things wrong. She said that Valentine had been about 20 when he married Catherine Beaver, which would have been about 1762 if Valentine had been born, as she said, in 1742. However, the Beaver family history indicated that Catherine wasn't born until 1761, and it is not likely she would have been married off when she was one year old.

    The answer is in the burial record of Conrad Junior, quoted below, which shows that he was the one married to ?Catharina Bieber,? not Valentine. The Bieber family history, also made clear that Catherine Bieber had been married to Conran Jr., not to Valentine, and that Peter Waltman was one of her children. In fact, all known versions of the Waltman lineage agreed that the mother of Peter Waltman was Catherine Bieber, but they disagreed about the identity of Catherine's husband. Otherwise, there was agreement on many other facts about Catherine, including acceptance that upon the death of her first husband (whatever his name), she married a man named Sendel. Both Beaver and LaMance made the same point.

    LaMance never accepted the corrections that were supplied to her by Rev. Schmoyer regarding Catherine Bieber and Conrad Junior. Her own copy of her book, which contained numerous handwritten corrections when she died, left unchanged her on that Valentine was the person who married Catherine Bieber, and it continued to exclude any reference to a Conrad Waltman Junior. In fact, she maintained the entire Chapter XVII of her book, on Valentine Waltman, as in the original, without a single penciled correction on these issues.
