ChartsAncestors of Chuck Wolfram
     Moses S. Halteman was born on 6 June 1842 in West Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.1,2,3,4 He was the son of Christian Halteman and Deborah B. Stauffer. Moses S. Halteman and Benjamin Halteman contributed one dollar each to St. Vincent German Reformed Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, for the construction of a church sanctuary in 1854.5 Moses S. Halteman witnessed the administration bond of Jesse Schultz's estate on 26 March 1863.6 Moses S. Halteman was a farmer.1,7,8 He was, like his ancestors, a Mennonite, and he belonged to East Vincent Mennonite Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. He and Almira lived on Arch street, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. Moses S. Halteman married Almira Schultz, daughter of Jesse Schultz and Catherine Godshalk, on 1 January 1867 in St. Peter's Evangelical and Reformed Church, Clover Mill Road, Chester Springs, West Pikeland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The Rev. Jesse B Knipe conducted the ceremony.9,10,11 Moses S. Halteman contributed two dollars to St. Vincent Reformed Church, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, for the purchase of a church organ on 1 May 1877.12 He was bonded as the administrator of the estate of Christian Halteman on 1 September 1893.13 A petition for the administration of the estate of Christian Halteman was granted to Moses S. Halteman when he qualified as administrator on 6 September 1893.14 His son William, upon first seeing a photograph of Joseph Lake Young, the owner of the Million Dollar Pier, almost mistook him for his father; he said that the resemblence was striking and that Young looked exactly like his father.15 He died at 12:05 am on 23 December 1920 in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, at age 78 years, 6 months and 17 days. The place of his death, according to his death certificate, is Franconica Township, Montgomery County. According to the funeral memorial card, and the diary of his son William, he died in Souderton. Since he died in 1920, he could not have died in both places. Souderton was incorperated in 1897, with minor changes in the border made in 1917. He was a resident of the Mennonite Home; it is known that many places in the township have postal addresses in Souderton. If the Home had a mailing address in Souderton, while within the borders of Franconia Township, this would explain the disparity.1,16,17,18 The cause of Moses's death was peritirutis, congestive of lungs and heart failure.1 The physican in attendance was D. M. Landis, M.D. of Perkasie, Pennsylvania who had attended him from Jan. 13, 1912. The doctor last saw him alive December 22nd.1 He was buried on 27 December 1920 in St. Vincent Reformed Cemetery, near Kimberton, East Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.16,17,1
      He left a will on 22 May 1912. It was handwritten, on a store brought stationary Will form.19 The transcript of the Will read:
