First, Pike County was carved out of two other counties -- Monroe and I can't think of the other one at the moment sometime around 1850, so there wouldn't be a Pike Co.census for 1850. The first census that included Pike Co. was 1860.
Valentine E. Engelhart was the natural son of Jacob Engelhart and Elizabeth Beyer. He married Rose Yager, and as far as I know never set foot in Kingston. I knew Valentie E. and have a few snapshots of him which I'll send along. The Kingston Valentine was his namesake, my uncle, who died in 1952. He was the son of Christopher Cassidy and Mary Elizabeth Engelhart. I don't think I have his birthdate, but they are two different people.
The adopted son of George J. Engelhart and Kate Shields was Edward Schmalzle. There's a slight glitch in the family tree which I'll explain later. One thing I've learned after three years of rummaging through census reports is that they can be confusing, misleading, and in many cases downright wrong. About the only things accurate are personal experience, family lore, and gravestones -- the final authority (no pun intended). I have Engelhart data taken fron gravestones in St. Ann's cemetery in Shohola. I'll include it in the package.
