Does anyone know of this Shalter family??
From "Pennsylvania German Pioneers", Vol. 1, pp. 198, 200 and 202, we learn that Ludwig Meyer (age 20), Martin Meyer (age 18), William Meyer (age 16), and Adam Meyer (age30), were passengers on the ship Winter Gally, Edward Paynter, Commander, and arrived at Phildelphia, from Rotterdam, Sept. 5, 1738.
Ludwig Meyer married Susanna ____ on april 4, 1753, her second husband, Conrad Geesy, petitioned the Court at Easton, PA, for appointment of guardian for the minor children of Ludwig Meyer (his wife's furst husband). The children named were: Martin (eldest son), Hans Michael (or Michael), Sebastion and Catharine. the guardians were: Johannes Shalter, the grandfather of Upper Milford (Now Lehigh Co.); Martin Meyer, an uncle; and Susanna, the mother. Subsequently, on Dec. 21, 1753, John Jones, of Bethlehem, was appointed in place of the uncle, Martin Meyer.
