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

      Nicholas Waltman (1750?-1778). LaMance said that, at age 19, Nicholas went with his brothers to the defense of Philadelphia in 1775. This would indicate he was born in 1756. She said he died or was killed in battle during the War. LaMance said Nicholas was the favorite child of his father, and his death is what drove Conrad crazy. LaMance may not have been correct about his age. Northampton County tax lists for Lehigh Township in 1772 list "Nich's Waltman," a farmer, having paid about two and a half pounds. If this is the same person and if LaMance had his birthdate correct, Nicholas would have been only 16. It is possible that he paid taxes, but if he was a farmer and had to pay, he would have been older than 16 at the time. Genealogist Hannah Roach suggested Nicholas had been born about 1750.[7] There is a ?Nicholas Waldman? in the Pennsylvania State Archives listed as serving with the 1st German Battalion under Capt. Benjamin Weiber, but it is not clear if this was the same person. The report of the early death of Nicholas also is unclear. In 1784, a Philipp Waldmann, son of "Nicolas and wife," was baptized in Hain's Reformed Church in Lower Heidelberg Township, Berks County, the same church where children of Ludwig, brother of Nicholas, were baptized. This suggests Nicholas was still alive in 1784 and did not die during the War.
