     William S. Halteman was born on 19 June 1880 at home, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.1,2,3,4,5 He was the son of Moses S. Halteman and Almira Schultz. William S. Halteman was also known as William Schultz Halteman. However, he had, as far as he knew, no middle name. He used the initial S from his earliest years.1 He was baptized as an adult on 13 November 1898 at age 18 in St. Vincent Reformed Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The Rev. Howard Long conducted the services.6 He played a slide trombone, which he bought in November 1898 from George Deimer. He started to play with a band in January 1900, and joined the Spring City band. Their band festival, in which he played, was on Aug. 18, 1900: they cleared $110. He later played with the Germamia Band of Norristown, Pennsylvania for the Evansbury Festival on June 14, 1902, and he later joined that band. He first heard John Philip Sousa and his band in concert at Mullan Grove, when he played there from May 30th to June 28th 1902; Sousa then played at the Steeple Chase Pier, Atlantic City. In later years, he would take every opportunity he could to see John Philip Sousa and his band whenever they would play on the Atlantic City boardwalk. He loved their march music.
     He could also sing; he had a rich bass voice. He resisted the efforts of the church organist, and of Mae Bessor, who pleaded with him, to recruit him for the church choir.
     William S. Halteman was by trade, a carpenter.7,8,9,10,11 He was by necessity, a driver, a deliveryman, for the laundry operated by his wife's brother-in-law.12 He lived in June 1902 in 574 Kohn street, Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.9 He and Melvina Raysor obtained a marriage license on 24 June 1902 in Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.13 William S. Halteman married Melvina Raysor, daughter of William Hudson Raysor and Rachel Perch, on 28 June 1902 at the parsonage of St. Vincent Reformed Church which was very probably 270 Chestnut Street,14 Spring City, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The Rev. Howard Long conducted the ceremony, which was witnessed by John P. Spring of Norristown, as best man, and Anna E. Gresh, also of Norristown, as bridesmaid.15,16 A coal black stray cat, named Topsy, showed up at their home at 1213 Willow Street, Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, on the night of Tuesday, 9 September 1902--- and was adopted. William S. Halteman ceased living at 21 Beech Street, Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, on 3 October 1909. He took his sons to board with Josiah. He started to board at Hotel Rambo on Monday evening, Oct. 11th. He sold at private sale on October 15th everything, with a few exceptions.17
     William S. Halteman went to the Million Dollar Pier, Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Monday, 29 January 1912. He started to take dancing lessons. This was when he met Mary Woods and her daughter Ida. They would not meet again for eight years. He asked Ida to dance and she found that he had two left feet; he stepped on her toes.17 He was described as being a 38-year-old white male of medium height and slender build in September 1918.11 He was employed by Emergency Fleet Corp. in September 1918 in 68th Street and Elmwood Avenue, West Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.11 He lived in September 1918 in 33 Coopertown Road, Oakmont, Upper Darby Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.4 He and Ida Gregory Woods were engaged on 23 July 1921. William S. Halteman lived in September 1921 in Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey.18 He married Ida Gregory Woods, daughter of William Woods and Mary Elizabeth Bissett, on 28 September 1921 at 124 Second Street, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey.19,18,20,21
     William S. Halteman and Ida lived between October 1921 and 8 February 1922 at 124 North Second Street, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. William S. Halteman and Ida lived between 8 February 1922 and 22 May 1922 at West Jersey Avenue, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. William S. Halteman and Ida lived on 22 May 1922 at 44 West Reading Avenue, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. William S. Halteman and Ida lived after 1923 at 43 East Revere Avenue, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey.4 William S. Halteman was a Methodist after 1926. He enjoyed baseball; he was a Philadelphia fan, but he was realistic about their chances. He was known to say that they would trade any decent player they had playing for them. He was usually right about that. He was described as a 61-year-old white man, five feet eight and a half inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds, with hazel eyes, grey hair and of rudd complexion on 26 April 1942 in Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey.4 He petitioned for a delayed birth certificate on 6 August 1942 from the Orphan's Court of Chester County, Pennsylvania. He sought the birth record so he could collect Social Security; he was 62-years-old at the time. The petition was granted by Judge Coust Woods on 3 August 1942. Supporting affidavits were filed by Josiah S. Halteman, Amos Kolb and Nora Hartman.1 William S. Halteman and Ida lived on and after on 6 September 1949 in 2606 Wabash Avenue, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey.22 Told to me by June Bolton, on Easter Sunday 5 April 2015, my grandfatther preferred to eat breakfast before going to bed--not n the morning. It is well known in the family that he started the *tradition* of requesting "a small piece of each" when asked which dessert he wanted at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. That answer was very soon thereafter employed by Uncle Harry--he said he liked the answer; both Bob and my father, in due time, took up the same response. I, in the third generation, have kept up the family tradition. June doesn't even ask sometimes anymore. William S. Halteman died at 2 am on 5 July 1959 in Mayfair Nursing Home, Somers Point, Atlantic County, New Jersey, at age 79 years and 16 days.7,23,24 The cause of William's death was cerebral thrombosis.7 His obituary appeared in The Atlantic City Press, Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on say 6 July 1959. It read:
          William S. Halteman

William S. Halteman, 79, of 43 East Revere Ave., Northfield, died in the Mayfair Nursing Home, Somers Point, Sunday after a month's illness.

      He left a will on 16 August 1948.27 The transcript of the Will read:

     Ida Gregory Woods was born on 21 January 1890 in N. Vineland, Landis Township, Cumberland County, New Jersey.1,2,3,4 She was the daughter of William Woods and Mary Elizabeth Bissett. She was said to have been born with the sixth sense, and to have given evidence of this at various times in her life.5 On 2 June 1905 her name was also recorded as Ida G Woods.6 Ida was listed as a member of a church in Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on 1 February 1915. She was received by letter and the pastor receiving her into membership was John W. Nicholson.7 She and William S. Halteman were engaged on 23 July 1921. Ida Gregory Woods married William S. Halteman, son of Moses S. Halteman and Almira Schultz, on 28 September 1921 at 124 Second Street, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey.8,9,10,11
     Ida G Halteman and William lived between October 1921 and 8 February 1922 at 124 North Second Street, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. Ida G Halteman and William lived between 8 February 1922 and 22 May 1922 at West Jersey Avenue, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. Ida G Halteman and William lived on 22 May 1922 at 44 West Reading Avenue, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey. Ida G Halteman and William lived after 1923 at 43 East Revere Avenue, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey.12 Ida G Halteman was a Methodist.7 Ida G Halteman was a member of the Christian Woman's Temperance Union, and was a founding member, along with Florence VanSant, of the chapter at Central Methodist Church of Linwood.
     Politically, she was, like the rest of her family, a member of the Republican Party. On Election day, she would be a challenger for the different candidates at the polls, and would prepare lunch for the poll workers at the church, where they would be served. It was believed that she knew everybody in town. She made it her business to know all persons. She would avow that she knew Evelyn Nesbit, that she moved into the house at the conner of Shore and Mill Roads. This is attested to by others in the city. She would add that Miss Nesbit---or Mrs Thaw---was a Methodist, or at least attended the Methodist church. I have subsequently checked the records of Central Methodist in Linwood and have found no record of a membership by Evelyn Nesbit under any of the names she used in her lifetime. I have not been able to check the records at Northfield Methodist. She made root beer from scratch, and William liked it with the "kick" it would give.13 In April 1949 her name was recorded as, and she signed her name as Ida Wood Halteman.14 She and William lived on and after on 6 September 1949 in 2606 Wabash Avenue, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey.15 Ida G Halteman died at 1:30 pm on 15 May 1954 at 2606 Wabash Avenue, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey at age 64 years, 3 months and 24 days.16,17,18,19 The cause of Ida's death was a heart attack, coronary thrombosis, which was suffered at home the night before her death. Peter H. Marvel, M.D. of Northfield, N.J. was the attending physician.20 Her obituary appeared in The Atlantic City Press in Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on 16 May 1954. It read:
     Mrs. I. W. Halteman, 64, Northfield Resident
Mrs. Ida Woods Halteman, of 2606 Wabash Ave., Northfield, died suddenly yesterday at her home. She was 64.
     A resident of Northfield 30 years, she had long been an active member of Central Methodist Church, Linwood. She was a member of the Fidelity Class and Women's Society of Christian Service there and was also a charter member of the Pleasantville Chapter of the Patriotic Order of America.
     Surviving are her husband, William S., and a daughter, Mrs. Mary Wolfram, of Northfield.
     The Rev. Sheppard Joslin, pastor of Central Methodist Church, will conduct services in Pleasantville Tuesday afternoon. Burial will be in Atlantic City Cemetery, Pleasantville.19
      A death notice appeared in the same newspaper at that time, and it read:
HALDEMAN----Of Northfield, N.J. suddenly on May 15, 1954, IDA WOODS, age 64 years, wife of William S. Halteman.

     Johanna Thomsen was born, one of triplets, on 10 August 1893 at 1937 Cayuga Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.1,2,3,4,5,6 She was also listed as being born, incorrectly, in August 1894 in Pennsylvania. Her age in the census was recorded correctly as 21 years, and the age of 21 was subtracted from 1915 to give a date of 1884, forgetting that she had not yet celebrated her birthday that year.7 She was the daughter of Carl Valdemar Thomsen and Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky. On 20 June 1900 her name was also recorded as Hannah Thompson.8 Johanna Thomsen was an ironer, employed by the laundry in April 1910.9
     There was a feud between Tilly and my great-grandmother. Bad blood existed between them, but nobody seems to know why. The origins of the conflict is unknown to me. Members of the family were advised not to have much to do with one another. Her niece, my grandmother, Johanna Thomsen, once paid her a visit, during which she fall on the sidewalk and broke her leg. Grandmom did not receive much sympathy, but was criticized for visiting her aunt.10
She married Charles Henry Wolfram, son of Charles Edward Wolfram and Johanna Volbert, on 27 May 1920 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Johanna Wolfram and Charles lived in September 1929 in 29 East Oakland Avenue, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey.11
     She would never let the telephone ring more than thrice. If she was calling somebody, you had to pick up the telephone by the third ring, or she would hang up. She held that if you didn't answer on or by the third ring nobody was home, and why should she waste her time with letting the telephone ring if nobody was home?

     She could play the piano and the organ. She could not read music but she could, and did, play the organ by ear. She would subsitute for any organist who could not play the organ that week; she would play at any church which needed her. Johanna Thomsen lived in Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida.12,13 She died at 9:30 a.m. on 7 July 1975 in Mease Hospital, Dunedin, Pinellas County, Florida, at age 81 years, 10 months and 27 days.14,15,16,13 She was also reported to have died, incorrectly, in Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida.17 The cause of Johanna's death was multiple right meningiomata, with contributory causes of cerebral and coronary arteriosclerosis, and diabetes mellitus.13 Her obituary appeared in The Press of Atlantic City, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on circa 9 July 1975. It read:

     Johanna was born in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, on 25 December 1858. She always celebrated her birthday on Christmas and every record that gives a date gives December 25th as the date or December as the month of birth; likewise, every document lists Pennsylvania as the state of birth, and her death certificate states Philadelphia. Various ages and different years have been given, this being the one changable "fact." The 1870 census records her as 12-years-old; she is not recorded as immigrating with her parents when they arrived 6 December 1858.2 Conflicting evidence states that Johanna was born in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, on various different dates. The month and day was always December 25th when a month or day was specified, the year changed according to the record. Her death certificate states 1874, while various censuses give ages that calculate to 1875, according to the 1915 New Jersey state census, or 1868 according to the 1900 federal census, where the month and year are given. Her gravestone (I've seen it several times) reads 1875. All these dates are wrong, however, as it appears she was enumerated in the 1870 census as a 12-year-old, and also as a 17-year-old, although the age of 17 might well be an error due to the handwriting. And any date after 1869 is clearly impossible, as her mother died then.3,4,5 She was the daughter of Nicolaus Volbert and Barbara Kissner. Conflicting evidence states that Johanna Volbert was born on 25 December 1852 in Pennsylvania. These records, however, are incorrect. The census record was misread, as shown by a second enumeration, and various other dates have been given.6,7 Johanna Volbert was also rendered as Joanna Folbert Also as FULBERT. It was an incorrect misspelling of the phonetically given surname.8 She was adopted in St. Vincent Orphanage, Tacony, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, by a family named HEMESBOCK or HEMESBACH or possibly HEMMESBACH.1 She married Charles Edward Wolfram, son of Henry Gerald Wolffram and Anna Wilhelmine Albers, on 26 May 1898 in Monroe Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey.9,1,10,11 Johanna, as Charles Edward Wolfram's wife, resided with him in 10 Polk street, in Riverside township, Burlington County, New Jersey, in 1926.12 Johanna Wolfram and Charles were Roman Catholics.

      Johanna Wolfram spoke German as her native and first language. She knew at least some English but was not fluent. German only was spoken between her and her husband; English was used to communicate with relatives who knew only English. She rarely left the house and did not interact with others, except to go to church.17
      Johanna Wolfram died at 6:45 a.m. on 28 July 1944 in the County Almshouse, Northfield, Atlantic County, New Jersey, at age 85 years, 7 months and 3 days.18,3 She was buried on 1 August 1944 in St. Peter's Cemetery, Riverside Township, Burlington County, New Jersey.18,3 She left a will on 23 October 1943 in Riverside, Burlington County, New Jersey.19 The transcript of the Will read:
