Just curious if anyone is researching the Bookwalter family in Huntingdon County, especially in Walker and Penn Townships.  I have a bunch of names, and am curious how they all tie together.  I've traced back as far as 1850 in the census years, and am looking for someone with knowledge to go back a little further.

I have Barbara Buchwalter married to James Parks but no info on who her parents were.  I have about 18 Buchwalters listed in my research.

I have Barbara [1835-1908] married to James Parks too, and like you I do not have her tied to any parents.  However, I strongly suspect that her parents were Daniel and Barbara Bookwalter.  I know they had a daughter named Barbara, who was born about 1831 according to the census reports.  It makes sense to me:  she was named for her mother, and named her first son after her father...what do you think?
