Walks origin in Germany

Hans Martin Walk was the only Walk to enter this continent. He came here on the British ship, The James Goodwin in 1734. Hans had his first wife, and sons, and a second wife and sons. His first wife was Catherine Clore. Hans's mother are not listed, and his birth date was estimated. He came from Weurtemberg, Germany.

To date, I have yet to find out where and when Weurtemberg existed. Now if we can find out that one thing, then we can track down Hans's father. Nothing means more to me, because I am the 10th generation grandson of Hans. The family history leads up to me, my dad James Edward Walk, and my half brother Thomas Charles Holmes, my two uncles, and their sons. We are the only ones left of the direct line of Hans Martin Walk. I did not know EITHER of my grandfathers on both sides, and now that I can not find Hans's father, my grandfather, it has become a quest.

Now if we all pull our resources, and find Weurtemberg, then we might be able to trace our name to the Crusades. Even if we can not get that far, we just got to Hans and stopped, why stop the search there? Either we sit, and the question will eat us, or we can put to rest now. Who will help me?
