Dear Walter, how times have changed and some of your childhood memories are familiar even today's young folks would never believe the stories. I just loved your description of the young life and you might share now before you forget. That was a jewel. I must say you do love color, it does brighten one's day to see how someone else lived years ago, but yet even today there are some with no modern items. Your story was so interesting and I enjoyed your thoughts of just how those days were at that time. I want to thank you for your spirit many days when I needed a lift. I want to thank you for your keeping in touch during times when I was down and needed a lift. As we all look for tomorrow and share our yesterdays with others, life becomes more precious to see the beauty of strangers who become close friends. I have met many and I cherish each one and hold them dear to my heart. My best to you, in life's journey today and tomorrow. Love, and always with pen in hand, Sandy

Thanks for the site. I enjoyed the information and its documentation. I have found information which can be different; Westfals were in Mecklenburg/Pommern from the 1400's {supposed to have been colonization by Westfalian princes} "History of Stettin" Wehrmann: 1911

Hello, I'm so happy I found your website. My husband's great-great-grandparents were William H and Martha (Westfall) Valentine. If I'm not mistaken, Martha's parents were Jacob and Elizabeth.

Hi Walter :-) Thank you for inviting me to read about your childhood memories! I thoroughly enjoyed it and wish I had grown up in that time :-) I too can recollect things from when I was about 2 years old and I was happy to see that I'm not the only one! It has often been said that we remember moments from a very young age if they have been happy ones or the opposite. I'm glad to know that your recollections are so joyous :-) Well you know I'm a big fan of your poetry but I'd like you to know that I thi k you have done an equally wonderful ~labor of love~ in creating these genealogy pages. Take care my friend and God Bless.. ~Lady Fiona~

Hi Walter, I have been visiting you for awhile and red some of your writings. Your mind travels in serene and beautiful places. I also read some of your childhood memories and i sometimes wish life was as it was then. Seems like more of the modern conveniences make iving as a family less convenient. Enjoyed my visit, will be back when i need to be uplifted. Thankyou for sharing, and for your visit to my home. Linda

Aloha Walter, Enjoyed your site. I too am a descendent of Jurian Westfall. I'm in the 12th generation. Here's is my line (I'll work backwards). Me (12), Charles (11), Eldridge (10), Sampson (9), James (8), John (7), Joel (6), Joel (5), Jacob (4), Jurian (3), Johanne (2), Juriaen (1). Not sure if you know this or not...the family has printed a HUGE book on our family's history. I couldn't find you or your father in it. If you're interested, contact me and I'll let you know how to get a copy. Good job on the site.< >

I've just reveiwed your Westfall page. I must say I'm very impressed. I was raised on a dairy farm in PA in the late 50's and remember those milking days very well. I had thought about putting my childhood memories on paper, but thought differently abo t it after awhile. However, now that I have read your childhood memories, I know now that this is something I want to leave my grandchildren. What a "Great" family page. Congratulations on a job WELL DONE! Mary

Dear Walter, Your love and many many hours of hard work show throughout your geneology site! Your work is very impressive...amazing how far back you have gone! It must have taken alot of research to find all this info. Being an adoptee...it really makes me wonder just where my family came from. I pray that one day, I will find out. *Smile* God bless you...Anita
