First, I know I'm responding to old postings - I'm just getting started. In New Hamburg there was a Romanus Halter. He had several children. One was Henry Halter, who I think was my ggrandfather. Henry had three wives that we know of - they kept dying on him. He worked at a resort not far from where I grew up that was very popular around turn of the century for it's springs with "healing properties" - called Schumer Springs Resort - in Perry County, MO. His children include Paul, Dolly, and Ben (my grandfather - killed in 1951 in an accident). Paul is best known for his ownership of the Halter Gas Co of Oran, MO. Paul is deceased. Dolly is the only survivor - and to date, I have never met her. The family is Catholic as far back as anyone knows...and we've pretty much always spoken German...?
Let me know if you think there might be a connection.
