  3. 3. 1 A. INTRODUCTION An Ahnentafel Report is a narrative style report that begins with a descendant, one person of a generation, and moves backward in time to an earlier ancestor and generation. It is an easy way to do an overview of you and your direct line ancestors. A Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report, a name coined and defined by this author, begins with an earlier known ancestor of the descending generations of an Ahnentafel Report, and moves forward in time, to the later generations of the earlier ancestor. This Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report is a presentation of the ancestry of Peter Walmer, The Elder, who came from Germany to America in 1742. Peter Walmer, The Elder, is the earliest known ancestor of the generational line which is as follows: The Generations Of This Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report Generation A n c e s t o r ’ s N a m e Ancestor’s Number  From The 1st Generation The Earliest Known Ancestor Peter Walmer, The Elder (128)  Through The 7th generation descendants of Peter Walmer, The Elder (64) to (2)  To The 8th Generation Descendant Of Peter Walmer, The Elder Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer (1)  To The 9th Generation Descendant Of Peter Walmer, The Elder Albert F.

  4. 4. 2 Order & Preparation Of This Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report  Previous Ahnentafel Report was prepared by James E. Barbush in November 2000. That report included the following generational order: 1. Generations F o l l o w i n g Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer From “Lizzie” back to Peter Walmer, The Elder 2. Generations P r e c e e d i n g Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer From “Lizzie” forward to James E. Barbush and his descendants The Previous Ahnentafel Report was prepared with Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer as a focal point, because she was the starting point of an Ahnentafel Report researched and prepared by Bev Wyld. Bev’s report started with “Lizzie” and went back to Peter Walmer, The Elder. Bev’s report was further developed by this author to include generations leading to this author.  This Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report includes the following generational order: 1. Generations F o l l o w i n g Peter Walmer, The Elder to Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer 2. Generations F o l l o w i n g Elizabeth “Lizzie” Walmer to Children of James E. Barbush This Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report is a reordering of the Ahnentafel Report. The reordering provides an easily read and understood generational presentation of Peter Walmer, The Elder, and a specific line of his descendants from beginning to end, rather than from the end back to the beginning. The generations of this Reverse Order Ahnentafel Report are presented on the following page:

  7. 7. 5 C. THE GENERATIONS
  8. 8. 6 PETER WALMER & ANNA MARGARETTA WALMER 1ST GENERATION Great Great Great Great Great (5G) Grandparents of Elizabeth "Lizzie" Walmer 128 PETER WALMER, THE ELDER  Earliest ancestor.  Birth. Born ca 1720 in Germany.  Occupation. Farmer.  Marriage. bef November 11, 1742 when Peter was 22, he married Anna Margret/ Margaretta (form of name uncertain).  Children. Peter and Anna Margaretta Walmer had the following children: i. Peter ( 1742 - 1794 ) ii. Susanna Margaret ( 1744 - ____ ) 64 iii. George (ca 1745 -< 1817 ) iv. John ( 1748 - 1797 ) v. Anna Maria ( 1755 - ____ )  Sponsors. Peter Walmer and Margaretta were sponsors at the baptism of Catarina Margaretha, the daughter of John Adam Herbert (Hanover), born September 5, 1757, baptized February 19, 1758. (46) Peter Walmer and wife Margaretha were also sponsors at the baptism of a son Peter, born to Gorg and wife Anna Schaffer, September 29, 1759, baptized June 10, 1760. (91)  Will. Peter Walmer's will written March 7, 1792, proven July 2, 1795. He was living in East Hanover Twp., Dauphin Co., Pa. - this later becomes Lebanon Co. Executors named - sons George and Peter. Will names Peter, the first born, sons John and George, daughter Susanna and son-in- law Peter Shell. (66) Peter Walmer Sen'r does not mention a wife so she must have died prior to March 7, 1792. There is a paper filed at Harrisburg, Pa. by George Walmer, the surviving heir of Peter, the Elder, dated January 19, 1796. Brother Peter is deceased by this time. This is a settlement of the accounts.  Death. Peter died in Dauphin Co., Pa. (later becomes Lebanon Co.) bef July 2, 1795. He was 75. Will is probated this date. 129 Anna Margret/ Margaretta ………………… (Wife Of This Peter Walmer, The Elder)  Death. Anna Margret/Margaretta died bef March 7, 1792. Margaret is not mentioned in husband Peter's will written this date.
  9. 9. 7 A. PETER WALMER, THE ELDER, CAME TO THE COLONIES ON SHIP "EUROPA"  Palatines Depart Rotterdam. Their port of embarkation had been Rotterdam, passengers classified as Palatines (area of Germany), The trip down the Rhine to Rotterdam took six months.  Arrival In America. Landed at Lewes, Delaware November 17, 1741. Interesting Note About Lewes, Delaware. “Lizzie’s” daughter, Violet, married Don McLaughlin. The family were outdoors people being interested in fishing, hunting, boating, and farming. Violet reported that the family traveled to Lewes often where they docked a boat. Age. Peter Walmer, age 21, made his mark (I). Name. A clerk signed his name. (62) [Note by BW: I have been told on numerous occasions by an aunt and uncle that Peter Walmer was one of five or six brothers that came to the Colonies. To date I have no reason to believe this is correct. There is no additional male Walmer on the "Europa's" passenger list, there was never a Walmer given as a baptismal sponsor for Peter's children, just no evidence of a male Walmer during that same very early time period.] Next evidence: [Note by BW: To date have found no marriage record for Peter Walmer. Only the males above the age of 16 were listed on the ship’s register. Peter Walmer Junior was born in 1742 so Peter Walmer Sen'r either brought a wife with him or married shortly after arriving in the U.S. (5) )  To Philadelphia. There was no infectious disease reported on board so on November 20, 1741 the passengers went on to Philadelphia, Pa. to take an Oath of Allegiance to the government before Ralph Asshelton, Esq.  The Ship “Europa”. There were 44 males above the age of 16, Capt. Lumsdaine, master.  Interesting Eisenhower Note - Hans Nicholas Eisenhauer, first generation of the Eisenhower family in American, also came on the Europa. He was the ancestor of President Dwight David Eisenhower. (61)  Other Ships. Ten ships came to the U.S. in 1741 – B. SETTLED IN PENNSYLVANIA. Lancaster Land Purchase From Hamilton. July 15, 1745 Peter Walmer buys land in Lancaster, Pa. from the Hon. James Hamilton, Esq. On October 9, 1746 Peter and Anna Margaret sell the land to Michael Fortiney. (63) Lancaster Land Obtained From Penns.  Warrant # 407 to Peter Walmer August 14, 1751 for 100 acres in Hanover Township, Lancaster Co. from Thomas and Richard Penn (sons of William Penn)  Surveyed February 12, 1754 for 277 acres, 80 perches.  Patented to Peter Walmer August 18 (Aug 22), 1766 for 270 acres. (64)
  10. 10. 8 C. WALMER’S CHURCH Tradition states that Peter Walmer and his six sons built Walmer's Church in 1751. (3) [Note by BW: I have doubts about this being Peter Walmer, The Elder. Walmer's or Salem is a union church (a church shared by different denominations) located 2 miles northwest of Ono in Union Township, Lebanon Co., Pa. Egle puts the first church in this location in 1770. That this was clearly a family church in early Walmer history is very clear. There are no stones or markers for Peter Walmer, The Elder, and his wife but they are in all likelihood buried here, along with many other early and later ancestors.] D. INDIAN ATTACK 1. One Account of The Indian Attack "On September 30, 1757, the five children of Peter Walmer were carried away, 4 girls and a boy. This was a raid led by a French lad, son of Commander of Fort Machault. There were 30 Indians in the raiding party. The Indians went through the house, broke the honey pots, scattered the flour and ruined everything they could not take with them. The son of the Commander of Machault had stuffed bread inside his shirt and dropped it. While backtracking he got lost and was captured. They left him write a letter and I believe printed the contents or partly as I recall reading he told his parents he was held prisoner but was treated well. I also remember Peter Walmer was out in the field making hay and his wife was with him when the Indians attacked the house. Her name was Anna Margaret, by baptismal record of Ann Maria." (9, letter dated May 8, 1980) 2. Another Account of The Indian Attack "From Montgomery's History of Berks Co. is the account of the capture of a Michael La Chanvignerie, a French Officer who was examined in Reading Pa. on October 16, 1757 by Conrad Weiser. He told of his part of being in this area of the county before when his party killed and scalped a German and took 7 children prisoner. He was captured at Fort Henry. But this still is not the event of Peter Walmer's." (9, letter dated May 8, 1980)
  11. 11. 9 3. Another Account of The Indian Attack page 494 Conrad Weiser, Friend of Colonist and Mohawk, by Wallace. “The attack on the Walmer farm led by Indians and Michael La Chanvignerie age 17, son of the commandant at Fort Machault (Franklin Co.), began with the departure of the raiding party from Ft. Machault September 11, 1757. Also in the party was a Frenchman, La Jardin and 33 Indians. They came through the Lebanon Valley passing many deserted places till they came to Peter Walmer's place. Peter and his wife were in the fields bringing in a load of hay. It was October 1, 1757. The Indians had made off with the five children the youngest not yet a year old and could not walk. They took all they could carry. The rest they destroyed, scattered the flour, spilled the honey, broke the pots and windows, tore up the beds. On 12 Oct a sentry at Fort Henry arrested La Chanvignerie after he got lost in the forest and separated from the raiding party. [Note by BW: I am sure I read this elsewhere too because this didn't mention how he got lost by going back for the bread he lost from inside his shirt.)" (9, letter dated May 8, 1980) [Note by BW: I have not confirmed any of the above.]
  12. 12. 10 E. RECORDED ASSESSMENTS, EMPLOYMENTS, & CENSUS Recorded Residents. 1751 East End Hanover inhabitants list: Petter Halmer (44) Recorded Assessment. 1756 Original East End Hanover assessment list; Peter Walmor fled from the Indians, possibly to Lebanon. Recorded Assessments. (No records prior to 1759 found giving township officials) (85) Recorded Assessment. 1759 Hanover assessments: Walmer, Peter Recorded Employment. 1762 Peter Wallman (?)

  13. 13. 11 Definitions:  Freemen - Men 21 years of age or older, unmarried. After marriage a man appears on the regular tax list.  Inmates - Persons who were married but owned no property. Probably laborers or merchants. Recorded Census. 1790 First U.S. Census - Dauphin Co., Pa. (65) Walmor, John Walmer, Peter Walmer, George [Note by BW: Since he is not listed separately, it is very probable that by this first census Peter Walmer, The Elder, was living with one of his children.] F. CHILDREN QUESTIONED [Note by BW: I have seen written by some people that Peter Walmer had 6 sons and 5 daughters. I think this is an error in early tax assessment interpretation]. Pound - a monetary unit of the United Kingdom Abbr. "L" Shilling - coin of the United Kingdom Abbr. "s" Pence - coin of Great Britain, plural of penny, penny Abbr. "d" (261) On certain tax assessments it was written Peter Walmer - s/6 and d/5. This was taken to mean six sons and five daughters but I believe should be six shillings and five pence. G. WALDHEIMER - "DWELLER IN THE WOODS" Tradition also states that the original name was Waldheimer - "Dweller In The Woods". (3) I have only found to date one instance of this particular spelling of the name. Otherwise it is almost always Walmer - sometimes Wallmer, or Wolmer - not to be confused with Vollmer, Vollmar > Follmer, Fullmer. There was an early family by the name of Wolmer in Montgomery Co., and later Bucks Co. I don't feel these were relatives to Peter but perhaps Follmers. Remember - the clerks taking the information were English, our ancestors were German and they didn't read or write. Things were written down as they sounded. FIT THIS IN *In the land description given of the aforementioned patent, Peter Walmer's property was bounded by lands owned by George Wyrick and Jacob Moser. Son George Walmer married Barbara Wyrick and John's wife was Christina Moser - neighbors?
  14. 14. 12 H. WALMER CASTLE AND THE TOWN OF WALMER LOCATED IN ENGLAND "The name "Walmer" in respect of the coastal town bearing that title comes from the Jutes who named the stretch of low-lying seashore between Deal and Walmer (ideal for invasion, unlike the cliffs at Dover to the south and Ramsgate to the north). The Jutes were given to raiding the area circa 500 AD and described the area as "Weallar" or "land of the slaves" and this became corrupted to "Walmer" in time. The Germanic tribes from Jutland eventually settled the area. Henry VIII got on the wrong side of the Pope during the English Reformation in the 16th century and fearing invasion from Catholic forces from Europe began improving the defenses along the Kent coast (Julius Caesar and his "veni, vidi, vici" bit - and the Jutes, and William the Conqueror, among others, had found it relatively easy to cross the 25 miles of English Channel) He refurbished Dover Castle (originally built as a wooden, prefabricated structure brought across by William's brother in 1066 and later developed into a formidable stone building) and built three new castles at Deal, Walmer and Sandown in 1538.

Section C, lot 114, grave 1 "I think Liz Barbush is buried in St. Catherine Laboure Cemetery on Derry Street in Harrisburg across the street from the church of the same name. If not there, she would be at Resurrection Cemetery in West Hanover Cemetery along Rt. 22. But St. Catherine is more logical since there are other Barbushes there, such as her son William Barbush. But it's all a little fuzzy right now since those funerals were so long ago and I have only concentrated on plots within my family such as my father, Albert Barbush (Resurrection Cemetery) and his first child and my sister, Joanne Barbush (St. Catherine Cemetery).” (257, email dated August 6, 2000)
  25. 25. 23  Relatives. According to her daughter Violet, “Lizzie” provided shelter for many relatives through the years. Some, as listed below, lived at 38 North 12th Street with Lizzie and her children. The half of a double home at (38 North 12th Street) was a 3 story residence.

Lizzie was a business woman. 1. Penn Harris Cab Company. Lizzie managed a share in the Penn Harris Cab Company after the death of her husband. She did that for decades. Even until the age of 80, Lizzie was taking the calls for pick-ups at the office located just off the Mulberry Street Bridge. 2. Crab Cake Business. The making and selling of crab cakes to restaurants and establishments in the area was apparently more than just a small business. Her daughter Violet reported that the business served many restaurants in the area and deliveries were made by many family members. Deloras remembers her grandfather, Israel flipping cakes with his right arm (he lost his left). 3. Duke Street Land. Lizzie acquired building lots at the edge of the City of Harrisburg and provided them to her sons and daughter. The lots were adjacent to each other and located on the undeveloped Duke Street between 26th Street and 29th Street. She either sold or gave the lots to Charles (26th Street), Deloras (261? Duke St.), William (2614 Duke St.), and Albert (2618 Duke St.). Another lot was sold to a policeman (262? Duke St.). Lizzie lived a block down from the lots on Duke Street on the corner of 25th and Duke Streets. 4. The Barbush Cab Company. Lizzie’s sons opened a cab company in the 1950s. It was located on the by-pass (across from then Maverick Steak House), on a rented lot that was part of a trailer park. That trailer park and lot was acquired by the Harrisburg School District. The district built and later demolished the middle school on that property. The office was a small garage (gas station style) with a pit to service cars. The cars were Ramblers, probably bought and donated by the brothers. The brothers drove the cabs. The office had a pin-ball machine that Lizzie’s grandchildren played.
