HALTER Family History from the website:
The first with the surname HALTER in Schirrhein, Alsace, France area "were one of two brothers. Abraham and Jacob HALTER. They left the village of Tafer in the Canton of Fribourg southwest of the Canton of Bern, Switzerland for land in Alsace that had been stripped of its population during the Thirty Years War. They immigrated to Schirrhein, Alsace between 1650 and 1660. In 1689 Abraham HALTER died in Schirrhein. Among his descendants, was Edouard HALTER of Schirrhein, Alsace's most famous poet, historian, and literary critic. A lesser known but nonetheless interesting descendant was Romain HALTER, the first mayor of Schirrhein, who served through the chaotic period of 1789-1792, during the French Revolution. Descendants of Abraham and Jacob are now scattered throughout the area and are found predominately in towns and villages around Schirrhein, particularly Schirrhoffen, Bischwiller, and Hagenau."
