In our family we have a Catherine whom we have not determined that correct spelling of her last name (Walender, Valenda, Valenta, Vallender). We know that she married John Bohr in Manitowoc county on December 25, 1867. She had 5 children, 4 survived to adulthood. In April of 1883 she died in Langlade county as a result of burns.
I have also found a large listing of these family names in Manitowoc county on their research page members.xoom.com/2manitowoc/
Does Catherine fit in your family tree?
