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

      Katherine Waltman, according to LaMance, was one of the twins born on Christmas Day in 1738. LaMance said she eloped at 15 and married Barnett Hampsher (or Hampshire). She was a mother at 16 and lived in York and possibly Lancaster Counties. ?Bernard Hamsher? was in the tax list of Shrewsbury Township, York County, in 1781, 1782 and 1788, and in the 1790 census for that township.[2] LaMance said that Katherine?s sisters Margaret and Eleanor also ran away from home, and that Katherine found husbands for them. One website said that Katherine had nine male children. One of her sons, Daniel Hampshire, married a cousin, Elizabeth Waltman, daughter of Katherine's brother Valentine (Note: this is not accurate, the Elizabeth Waltman(d/o Valentine) married Daniel Hamsher, son of Adam). Both Daniel Hampshire and Valentine Waltman were in the Allen Township tax list for 1788. LaMance thought Catherine was still alive in 1811, when she signed legal papers.
