Generation No. 5

      @17.  Sophia5 Walter (Leonhardt4, Johann George3, Andreas2 Walther, Gertraudt1 Baltzer)27 was born 14 February 1826 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, and died 17 July 1910 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia28.  She married George Francis Schwartz29 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, son of Casper Schwartz and Ann ---.  He was born 27 July 1817 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia30,31, and died 1906 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia32.

Notes for Sophia Walter:

Sophia is supposed to be the daughter of Leonard and Mary Walter.  There is no overt record of her birth.

Through her life, Sophia changed the age she reported to the Census taker, leaving us to speculate whether she was born in 1821, 1825, 1826 or 1836.  In the 1901 census, she indicates her date of birth as 14 February 1836, aged 75. This date cannot be correct, for she would have been only eight years old at the birth of her oldest child.  Based on a review of all the dates reported by her, I have chosen 14 February 1826, which would be roughly concurrent with the age she reported in 188135 and 189136.
