I am searching for my Walther ancestors. According to family records, my 2nd great grandfather, Albert Walther was b. 1830 in Darmstadt and his mother's name was Amelia. His father's name could have been Lewis, as Albert's first son was named that. Albert came to the US in the 1850's I believe, most likely to Baltimore, MD. He settled in Cumberland, Allegheny, MD and married Christina Becker (b. 1831, Staufenberg, Hesse). Their only child was Lewis, b. 1859. Albert died around the same time as Lewis' birth and Christina remarried John Pfieffer (b. 1836 Darmstadt, Hesse)in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cumberland, MD in 1860.
Thanks for any information, suggestions, etc.!
