Jean and Anna had one son, Edward Peter Halter about 1859, and a daughter, Josephine, on 19 August 1865. While I have not yet been able to find the family in the 1860 or 1870 US Census, I did find them in 1880.

Jean Halter died on 10 February 1905 in New Orleans. A death announcement in the New Orleans Times-Democrat provides some important clues about his residence and other members of the family. His last address, 4559 North Rampart Street, is near the Mississippi River in the Lower Ninth Ward.

The death notice for Jean pointed me in the direction of another daughter of Jean and Anna, Mary Halter. She was born in New Orleans in September 1862. Mary wed Louis Reynolds in February 1880, which is why she doesn't appear with the family in the 1880 US Census. Mary and Louis were living next door to Jean and Josephine in the 1900 US Census. She died sometime before 1910.
There's a few more things to share on the Halter family in New Orleans before I move another family in the city, and that will wait for the next post.
