     Bishop Abraham Haldeman was born on 30 August 1780.1 He was the son of Rev. Christian Haldeman and Magdalena Fried. Bishop Abraham Haldeman was also known as Bishop Abraham Halteman The last name is spelt HALDEMAN in many sources, but David Hendricks Begley in his work The Genealogy of the Begley Family spells the name HALTEMAN. Since I do not know how he spelt his name, and can find no published genealogical record or history, other than the book by Begley, directly relating to Abraham, I choose to accept the spelling he employed. However, his father Christian used the name HALDEMAN, and his brother Benjamin definitely used the name HALTEMAN. He married Anna Bergey, daughter of Christian Bergey and Mary (?), circa 1800.1 Bishop Abraham Haldeman was a farmer.2,3 He was a Mennonite minister and later a bishop.1 He served as a bishop of the Mennonite Church, first in Chester County, and then in Juniata County, Pennsylvania.1 He married Elizabeth Funk, daughter of Rev. Jacob Funk and Mary Shelly, circa 1818.4 Bishop Abraham Haldeman lived in November 1823 in Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.5 He died on 30 May 1865 in Juniata County, Pennsylvania, at age 84 years and 9 months.1 He was buried in near Richfield, Juniata County, Pennsylvania.1
     Abraham was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census in West Penn Township, Schuykill County, Pennsylvania. He was recorded as being a 70-year-old male born in Pennsylvania, a farmer with $2,500 worth of real estate6.

Jennie Sara was born on January 13, 1909, to Dorothy and Albert Peterson in Swedesboro, New Jersey. Jennie's father, a glassblower by trade, passed away when she was only six years old. His untimely death caused great hardships for her mother and 8 siblings. It forced little Jennie's care to put in the hands of foster families. She attended various Bridgeton, New Jersey schools but not very regularly. By her teenaged years, Jennie returned home to assist her mother in running the hosehold in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Jennie found her first job in Atlantic City, caring for the children of hotel guests. Not long after, she began laying the groundwork for her lifetime passion, baking and preparing meals while training for her craft in various bakeries and restaurants.

During this time, while attending services in Chelsea Presbyterian Church on Chelsea Avenue in Atlantic City, Jennie met her husband, Carl Waldemar Thomsen, Jr. They were married in October, 1933. She was working at Kent's Bakery on Atlantic Avenue selling baked goods, but Carl insisted that she quit that job, because he would support the two of them himself. Although he was a union carpenter by trade, as was his father, Carl W Thomsen, Sr., he was running an Esso gas station on Artic Avenue. They had bought a small row house at 15 North Barton Rouge Avenue in Ventnor City, New Jersey. Their first son David Carl Thomsen was born in Atlantic City Hospital on Christmas Day, 1938. Their second son, Richard Lee Thomsen, was born in Atlantic City on June 8, 1941.

When the Second World War started in December, 1941, Carl and Jennie moved to Westville, New Jersey, and Carl went to work with New York Shipbuilding Company in Camden, New Jersey, working on warships as a carpenter. Carl had graduated from Atlantic City High School, and was apprenticed as a member of the Carpenters and Joiners Union Local in Atlantic City, so he was skilled at reading blueprints and plans, and he was able to assist other workers in the shipyard. Carl and Jennie had a Victory Garden with tomatos and beans and eggplants behind their rented house, along with a chicken coop and a pet duck, Daddle.

When the war ended in Auigust, 1945, the family moved back to Ventnor City, New Jersey. Carl went to work for the Atlantic City Board of Education as a union carpenter. Jennie remained a homemaker. They took their two sons to Chelsa Presbyterian Church. Jennie taught Sunday School, and Carl was a Deacon, and President of the Board of Trustees, where his skills as a carpenter were put to use in maintaining the church building.

On March 17, 1955, Carl broke new ground on a new house at 215 North Dudley Avenue on a double lot they had bought earlier. David and Richard worked on the house with him and some of his carpenter union friends. They moved into the somewhat uncompleted house in December, 1955, fulfilling a promise that Carl had made to Jennie when they were married, that he would build a house for her himself, and they lived in that house together until 1990.

After Carl retired from the School Board, he worked at the Atlantic City Convention Center on convention shows at full union rates, and he saved money for retirement and traveling. After retiring, Carl and Jennie had time to travel. Their first airplane trip was to Copenhagen, Denmark, where Carl had family ties. They visited his father's relatives in Jutland, but they went by car elsewhere in northern Europe. They later made several trips to other European countries. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1983 with a trip in David's car to Tennessee, and a big party in Somers Point, New Jersey. She started to do acrylic paintings after Carl gave her the paint and equipment for her 80th birthday. They celebrated their 57th anniversary in 1990, but Carl's health was failing, and he went to be with the Lord on May 14, 1991, his 84th birthday.

Jennie stayed with family friends Ronnie and Minnie Krassenstein for a few months after his death, and then moved into the Baptist Home in northeast Philadelphia in July, 1991. She was able to attend and go down the aisle of the chapel at the Baptist Home at the wedding of her son David to Swee Kim ("Annie") Thomsen on July 26, 2003.

She went to be with the Lord on January 4, 2008, just a week before her 99th birthday, and is buried next to Carl at Laurel Hill Memorial Park in Pomona, New Jersey.1
