This week's story "BALSER/BALSOR/BALTZER"

 

BALSER/BALSOR/BALTZER

 

William Alden Balser b.Jul.11, 1811 Wilmot, Annapolis Co., NS, migrated to Lower Coverdale area of Albert Co., NB, m.Nov.5,1834 to Margaret Crossman, raised his family and died in 1894 Lower Coverdale, Albert Co., NB and buried at the Wilmot Memorial Cemetery.  He has many descendants in the Albert Co. and Westmoreland Co. areas. He was a farmer and a Baptist according to the Coverdale, Albert Co., NB census records.

 

He is the son of Foster Baltzer and Lydia Bass and a descendant of Johannes Christoph Baltzer. Johannes was a Foreign Protestant from Northern Germany; he was a butcher in Rosenthal and then Marburg. He left Rotterdam on the ship "Sally” in 1752 with his family.  The ship went from Halifax to Lunenburg where they settled.  Johannes’ sons, eventually settled in the Annapolis Valley, NS.

 

 I have researched this family and have information on William Alden Balser’s  ancestors and descendants and am willing to share the information with anyone interested in the name.
