Burkholder Family Genealogy Forum
First, you will find my email address by clicking on my name in this posting header. Alan, everything I have seen has Jacob and Sophia as Peter's parents. I guess a 'change-of-life' baby is as possible in the 1790s as it is in the 1990s; 47 is not all that old for having a child ... there were many women who seem to have done so, and even older than that.
As for children born in Fonthill .... Peter bought 100 acres of lot 8 con 4 Beverley twp in April 1815 ... before he married Susannah, but in subsequent years turns up in Barton twp assessment rolls on lot 9 con 5 Barton. Unless she went home to have children, or Fonthill is near enough to his property to say he lived there, I would say she more likely had her children at home in Barton twp.
I am not familiar enough with locations in Wentworth and area to know where Fonthill is in relation to where the various Burkholder families lived. So I don't know if there were any in Fonthill. Good to hear from you. Ruth
