Nicola Walter
Birth: 1720
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Death: Sep. 21, 1804
Pennsylvania, USA

Nicola Walter was born, grew to manhood, married and started a family in the Palatinate region of Germany. In the spring of 1751, he took passage from Rotterdam, Holland, traveling with his first wife Margaret and four young sons. They arrived in Philadelphia on September 9, 1751.

Originally the family settled in Bally, Berks County, Pa, then moved to Lancaster. While in Lancaster, his wife Margaret died.

In 1779, with his new wife, Rosanna (Rosina) he moved to his final home in McSherry's Town, Heidelberg Township, in then York County. He taught school at the church school associated with the Conewago Chapel. Upon his death he was buried in the church graveyard.

In 1850, the Conewago Chapel was enlarged in the direction of the oldest section of the graveyard. Rather than disturb the graves, the altar section of the church was built directly over the graves. Nicola and his wife now rest in peace under the sanctuary of Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
