JOHN R. WALKER

John R. Walker, well known as a breeder and raiser of fine sheep, was born in Griggsville township, Pike county, in January, 1847, and is of English lineage. His father, Robert Walker, was born in England, and came alone from that country to America, when seventeen years of age, crossing the Atlantic in a sailing vessel, which dropped anchor in the harbor of New Orleans. He remained for ten years in the Crescent city and vicinity, rafting logs from up the river down to New Orleans and employing a number of negroes, whom he secured by buying their services from their masters. When a decade had passed he removed to Pike county, Illinois, and entered one hundred and sixty acres of land from the government northeast of Griggsville. Here he built a home and sent for his married sister, Mrs. Wilson, to join him. Beginning at once the work of developing and improving his property, he broke the wild prairie and cultivated his land. Later he sold the property to his sister and entered one hundred and sixty acres adjoining his original claim on the north. This was also wild and unimproved. He erected thereon another residence; and he built the first barn with a cellar in the community. As a companion and helpmate for life's journey he chose a Miss Wade, and they became the parents of three children: Thomas, Elizabeth and Rebecca, all of whom are yet living. After a time he sold his second farm and bought two hundred acres of land south of Perry, on which a part of the village of Perry now stands, and after selling that property to William Ward he bought one hundred and forty-five acres of prairie land and eighty acres of timber land. He owned at one time seven hundred and twenty acres of land; and he was extensively engaged in breeding and raising hogs and horses, being a lover of fine animals. He retired from the farm in 1855, when he removed to Perry, where he spent his last years in honorable retirement from further labor. He never sought or desired public office, but was a stanch republican and a liberal and earnest supporter of the party. He cut from his land a Lincoln flagstaff and assisted in raising it in Perry. In 1857 he joined the Christian church, of which he continued a loyal member up to the time of his demise, which occurred in 1861, when he was in the sixty-sixth year of his age. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Hannah Scott, was born in Tennessee, and died in 1874, in the sixty-fifth year of her age. They were married in Griggsville township; and in their family were six children, of whom two are living, John and James.

The brothers were educated in the public schools; and when nineteen years of age, John R. Walker and his brother James began farming for themselves on one hundred and eighty acres of land. They continued in business together until 1873, when they dissolved partnership, each taking one hundred and sixty acres of land. Upon this tract John R. Walker has since carried on general agricultural pursuits, and in addition to his farm in Fairmount township he has one hundred and forty acres in Perry township. He and his brother brought to Pike county the first polled Angus cattle, and also engaged quite extensively in breeding fine horses. Mr. Walker of this review sent to England for four Oxford Down sheep, and has since made a specialty of breeding, raising and selling registered sheep. He has also displayed his sheep at different fairs, where he has won a number of prizes; and he is one of the stockholders of the Illinois Valley Fair Association. He is an excellent judge of fine stock, his judgment rarely, if ever, being at fault in determining the value of an animal; and through his stock-raising interests he has done much to improve the grade of cattle, sheep and horses raised in this part of the state, thereby contributing to the general prosperity.

On the 21st of November, 1869, Mr. Walker was married to Miss Mary F. Barlow, who was born May 11, 1848, a daughter of Frank B. and Elizabeth (Walker) Barlow, both natives of Robinson county, Kentucky. They were married there, and with two children they came to Illinois, settling first near Farmington in Fulton county in 1847. There Mr. Barlow carried on general farming until 1860, when he removed to Pike county, settling near Fish Hook, where he carried on general agricultural pursuits up to the time of his death. He passed away November 26, 1862, and his wife died September 28, 1860. They were the parents of seven children, of whom five are now living: Mrs. Martha J. Greenleaf, Mrs. Walker, Tabitha E., James A. and Margaret. Mr. and Mrs. Walker have four children: Nellie F., who was born September 16, 1870, and is the wife of Alec Chenoweth: Robert L., who was born August 1, 1872; Ila M., who was born April 5, 1875, and was married February 5, 1893, to Harvey Witham, her death occurring November 11, 1898; and Charles A., born May 26, 1884.

Mr. Walker has served as supervisor of Fairmount township for two terms, and was road commissioner for fifteen years, while his son Robert has become his successor in that office. The father was also township treasurer for four years, and the son is now filling that position at the present time. Mr. Walker belongs to Perry lodge, No. 95, A. F. & A. M., having been identified with the craft since attaining his majority. He also belongs to Perry chapter, No. 165, R. A. M., and has been president of the Anti-Horse Thief Association. He always votes with the republican party; and he and his family are members of the Christian church. In matters of citizenship he is deeply interested, and any movement or plan for the public good receives his endorsement and co-operation. His business interests have been capably managed and his keen sagacity and unfaltering diligence have been resultant factors in winning for him the confidence which he now enjoys.

General Notes: Husband - § William Walker



PARENTAGE OF WILLIAM WALKER

Charlou Dolan:
The custom among the Scottish and Scotch-Irish, especially before 1800, was to name the first-born son after the father's father, the second-born son after the mother's father, the first-born daughter after the mother's mother, and the second-born daughter after the father
s mother. Only after those people had namesakes would a man name a son after himself or a daughter after the mother. Of course when the father had the same name as his father, the oldest son would have the same name as the father and the grandfather.
William Walker of Botetourt County named one of his older sons Henry and one of his older daughters Agnes, which is a very strong indication that the William Walker, son of Henry and Agnes Walker of Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, is our William Walker.
In this case these naming patterns take on especial significance because the names Henry Walker and Agnes Walker appear almost nowhere else in Virginia other than in our Walker family.
John Tracy Walker and I have, of course, checked to see if anyone else has a William Walker who claims to be the son of Henry and Agnes Walker above. So far, no other researcher says Henry and Agnes are the parents of their William.
I realize that not everyone will agree that we have proved our case, and I would love more definitive records. For me personally, the almost total non-use of the names Henry and Agnes by other Walker families in Virginia are adequate proof to accept Henry and Agnes of Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, as the parents of William Walker of Botetourt Co.
Fortunately, DNA studies are beginning to provide proof of relationships where no written proof has been found. So far, the DNA of a living male Walker whose paper-trail leads back to James, who probably was the father of Henry Walker, who we think was the father of this William Walker, matches the DNA of several living male descendants of this William Walker. Moreover the DNA test of another male Walker whose paper trail goes back to Henry Walker also matches the DNA of our William Walker's descendants.
I use the term "whose paper-trail" instead of saying "who was a descendant of" because I have not yet seen and double-checked all the documentation that would prove their descendancy. Yes, DNA proves there is a relationship; no, DNA does not prove what the relationship is. In other words, DNA tests can prove that two living Walker men both descend from the same Walker ancestor -- somewhere back up the line. They do not, however, prove who the common ancestor was.

EARLY RECORDS OF WILLIAM WALKER

Charlou Dolan:
Early information about William Walker of Botetourt Co., VA, is highly tentative. His son, William Walker, Jr., was born in Bedford County, VA, in 1759 (according to his Revolutionary War pension application), which would place William Sr. there at that time. The earliest deed J. Tracy Walker and I have found for William Sr. in Botetourt County (at that time part of Augusta Co.) calls him William Walker "of Bedford County," which would confirm that he was living there before he moved to Botetourt. There is also an early lawsuit in Augusta Co. between an unknown person and "William Walker of Augusta County, Virginia and Bedford County, Virginia." This shows that William owned land in both counties at the same time. Unfortunately, early court records of Augusta County are in total disarray and in the basement of the courthouse in Staunton. At this time they are not accessible to researchers. The genealogical society of Augusta County hoped back in 1987 to sort and clean them, but I do not know if any progress has been made.
There was a William Walker who enlisted 24 Nov 1755 in a company of rangers in Augusta Co., VA, under the command of Capt. William Preston. William Walker is listed as being 18 years of age, 5 feet 4 inches tall, and his country is given as Pennsylvania. He was discharged 12 Dec 1755, making his term of military service only 18 days. In one of the Draper Manuscripts, there is a payroll for these rangers. William Walker did not receive any pay, but the reason for the non-payment was illegible on the film that I viewed. Unfortunately, if one is to believe the age given on his tombstone, William Walker was 30 years old in 1755.
The question then arises, is the tombstone inaccurate? It happened frequently in the days before driver's licenses and social security, that an old person became much older than his actual years, since after a certain period of time there was no one around who remembered his birth. We have tried to come up with an estimate for the ages of his children, (we have birth dates for only two, William and George), dates of their marriages, ages of their children, etc. It is very frustrating, however, due to lack of early censuses, lack of any information about some of William's children, etc. The best we can say, is that the birthdate indicated by the age given on his tombstone is consistent with what we know about his children, but on the other hand nothing proves that he could not have been the 18-year-old soldier in 1755.

EARLY RECORDS IN AUGUSTA CO., VIRGINIA

Hening's Statutes at Large (Hening)
vol. 7 - 1756-63:
In Sep 1758 a William Walker was allowed 15 pounds 12 shillings for provisions furnished to the county of Augusta.
[We need to check Hening's Statutes at Large to see the actual reference here, plus check for other Walker references.]

LAND IN BEDFORD CO., VIRGINIA

In 1761 William Walker bought a tract of land in Bedford Co., Virginia. This deed is recorded in Bedford Co. Deed Book ?, pages 429-430:
This Indenture made the twenty seventh day of April in the year of our Lord one Thousand seven Hundred and sixty one Between William Callaway of the County of Bedford of one Part and William Walker of the same County of the other Part Witnesseth that the said William Callaway for and in consideration of the just and full sum of thirty two Pounds cur't Money of Virginia to him in hand & paid by the said William Walker... do give grant bargain sell deliver & confirm to him the said William Walker... one certain tract... of Land... in the county aforsaid on the branch of Little Otter Containing four Hundred acres more or Less and Bounded as Follows viz:

SALE OF BEDFORD LAND

Charlou Dolan:
In Bedford Co. Deed Book ?, pages 48 & 49, there is the deed dated 23 Nov 1762, whereby William Walker sells the above described land to William Mead for 60 pounds. The deed was recorded the 23rd of Nov 176_. Either 1763 was written, then the 3 was overwritten by a 2, or the 1762 was written and then the 2 overwritten by a 3. The same thing was done on the preceding deed. I would say that it should be 1762, since otherwise it is quite a coincidence, that it was recorded the exact same day and month that it was signed, only one year later.
There is no wife's name mentioned in this deed, and yet William Walker was having children born during this period, hence the need to check what the legal requirements were at that time. An earlier deed from Bedford Co (1755) has a William Walker and wife Elizabeth selling to William Mead a tract of land containing 400 acres, on both sides of Little Otter River. If the 1762 sale of land is by our William Walker, then why isn't his wife's name on the deed? This is definitely the land purchased 7 Apr 1761 by a William Walker from William Callaway, both listed as "of Bedford County."

LEASE & RELEASE

Charlou Dolan:
In the 18th century, Virginia had a law about land sales that made it difficult in some way for anyone to sell land except to someone who was already leasing the land in question. To get around this law, people used a system of double transactions, called "lease and release." The first deed signed was the "lease," in which the land was leased, usually for a very small amount of money or for one peppercorn (meaning an actual, real peppercorn, which was the smallest item that had a standard monetary value, and that could be and was used as money). The second deed, signed 24 hours later, was the actual sale (called the "release"), in which the owner sold the land (for cash) to the person leasing the land. In most cases the two deeds, the "lease" and the "release" were identical except for the date and the price paid.

LAND IN AUGUSTA CO., VIRGINIA

Augusta County Deed Book ??,pages 101 & 102:

There follows immediately the second deed (the release), again dated the next day, this time for seventy three pounds sixteen shillings, which was the actual sale price.

PURCHASE OF LAND ON CRAIGS CREEK

On 8 Jul 1762, William Walker "of Bedford County" bought 275 acres of land on Craigs Creek from Robert Williams, as shown in the deed below, which was recorded in two different counties.

DISPOSITION OF LAND ON CRAIGS CREEK

Charlou Dolan: William Walker first deeded 100 acres of this land to Henry Walker (Deed Book 5, page 252) and later deeded the other 80 acres to "my son Henry Walker" (Deed Book 6, page 300). The deeds of Henry Walker and Martha Walker need to be checked to see if Henry (the son) was in possession of the entire 180 acres, or if another, as yet unidentified, Henry Walker owned part of it.

Botetourt Co., VA, Deed Book 6, page 300:

MORTGAGE OF LIVESTOCK

Botetourt Co., Virginia, Deed Book 1, page 391:
Whereas David Loony stands Security for me in a Bond ___ to Col. John Buchanan on the eighth day of December 1763 for the sum of Thirty three pounds eighteen shillings and three pence Current Money of Virginia with Interest from that time, which Bond is now in the Possession of Wm.

At a court held for Botetourt County 13 May 1772 This Bill of Sale was proved by the oath of Colo'o Robert Breckenridge a witness hereto and Ordered to be recorded.

[Charlou Dolan: The first thing my mother and I noticed was that the original bond mentioned in the above document was made on the exact day and for the exact sum as the first land purchased by William Walker in Augusta (later Botetourt) Co., which would explain where William got the money to buy the land. What puzzled us, however, was why William didn't just sell the animals and pay off the bond? Don Strong explained that in effect William Walker was just mortgaging the animals to David Looney, and William got to keep them as long as he did not default on his payment to Col. John Buchanan.]

EARLY BOTETOURT COURT RECORDS

Charlou Dolan: When my mother and I were in Botetourt Co. in 1986, we were told that people had thought for a long time that no early Botetourt County Court records existed. But just a few years before we were there, cardboard boxes filled with early court records were discovered in the basement of the courthouse, stacked up against the concrete walls. Due to the moisture they had absorbed, they were sent to the State Library in Richmond, where they were in a long line of records waiting for rehabilitation. Although these records were not accessible to the public, my mother and I got permission from the Botetourt County Clerk to look at them. When the records were brought to us, however, their condition was even worse than we had been told. They were disintegrating to the point that removing one piece of paper from the top of the stack caused that piece to disintegrate completely. The only hope for salvaging them that we could see would be to have someone film each one before removing it from the stack. At the end of this filming, to be sure, the documents would no longer exist, but there would at least be a film record of them. I can only hope an expert on restoration of such severaly damaged papers knows a better process that will allow the documents to be filmed without destroying them in the process.

GRANT OF LAND

William Walker received 60 acres of land (date ?) from a new grant, on a southeast branch of Craigs Creek, on the Fincastle to Sweet Springs Road. (Deed Book 14, page 649). In his will, this land is called "The Sulpher Springs Place." He willed this land to his grandson William, son of his deceased son Henry Walker.

WIVES OF WILLIAM WALKER

William Walker was apparently married twice. On a deed in 1772 when a William Walker sold some land to Samuel Carson, his wife is listed as Mary. This may or may not be our William Walker. On 25 Apr 1785 our William Walker Sr. signed a marriage bond to marry Mary Walker. Originally we thought that this marriage was William Jr., his son, but the signature on the marriage bond matches the other known signatures of William Sr., namely the ones on the marriage bond of his daughter Esther to Thomas Wilson in 1791, and on his will and the codicil to his will in 1810.

MARRIAGE BONDS

Charlou Dolan:
In early Virginia there were two ways to get married. One was by calling banns three Sundays in a row in the Church of England. The purpose of calling banns was to let other people know that the two people intended to get married. If anyone then had an objection (such as that one of the couple was underage, or a bound servant, or already married to someone else), they would find out about the upcoming marriage in time to voice their objections.
Many of the people living in the Shenandoah Valley, however, were seeking religious freedom, and therefore they did not want to have banns called in the Church of England. As an alternative to banns, one could post a bond guaranteeing that both parties to the marriage were of age (or if not, that they had the consent of their parents or guardian), and that there was no other impediment to the marriage. As is done with a bail bond today, only a small amount of money was actually paid, with the people posting the bond guaranteeing to pay a much larger sum if the parties to the marriage were found to be not free to get married. Two people were required to sign the bond. One was usually, but not always, the groom. The other was usually a relative. I have been told that in general, if the bride was underage, her father would sign the bond, but if she were over the age of 21 her brother or uncle would sign. Sometimes, however, the other person signing as "surety" on the bond would be a friend or relative of the groom. There were usually one to three witnesses to their signatures.
If one of the parties was under the age of 21, the written consent of the responsible person (father, mother, or guardian) was needed. At other times an affidavit was signed by someone who gave oath that the person concerned was over the age of 21. Sometimes the bride herself signed such an affidavit, although the more usual case was for a relative or neighbor to swear that the bride (or in some cases the groom) was of age. The affidavits and consents were also usually witnessed by one to four other people. Because the bonds obligated the signers to pay the state of Virginia a certain sum if the conditions were not met, the county clerks kept the actual bonds, consents, and affidavits (as compared to land records, where the owners got to keep the actual deeds after the clerk copied them into the deed books). These bonds, affidavits, and consents are therefore a good source of original signatures, and they offer the genealogist the opportunity (if he is lucky) to prove that two people with the same name were the same person, or alternatively to show that they were two people.
As an example of the wording on a bond, we will include here the marriage bond of William Walker, which is typical of such marriage bonds, the first part being the bond, and the second part being the conditions under which the bond would have to be paid off:
"Know all Men by these presents that we William Walker and Joseph Snodgrass are held and firmly bound unto the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Sum of fifty pounds Current Money To the which paiment well and truly to be made we Bind our Selves our & Each of our Heirs Executors & administrators firmly by these presents Sealed with our Seals and Dated
this 25th day of apl. 1785
The Condition of the above Obligation is Such that Whereas there is a marriage Shortly intended to be had & solemnized between the above bound Wm. Walker & Mary Walker both of this parish If Therefore There shall be no Lawful cause to Obstruct the said Marriage then the Obligation to be void otherwise to remain in full force & virtue
Teste
William Walker
Joseph Snodgrass"

[Note: In this particular case, Joseph Snodgrass is the son-in-law of William Walker, and there were no witnesses.]

REVOLUTIONARY WAR SERVICE

At a Court held in Botetourt County March 14, 1782, William Walker was allowed £3 6s 8p for 400 lbs of beef for the Militia. At a Court held April 11, 1782, William Walker was allowed 6 Shillings for pasturage and 6s 6p for 12 bundles of fodder for Com'ny Department.
[Charlou Dolan: I have not yet seen the originals of these records, but they are listed on the DAR application of a descendant.]

MORTGAGE OF LAND

In Botetourt Co., Virginia, Deed Book 3, page 461, William Walker mortgaged some of his property to his sons-in-law Joseph and Isaac Snodgrass.

[Charlou Dolan: We need to check and see if William redeemed this land, and if it was still in his possession when he died. It would also be interesting to find out why William Walker needed cash so badly that he mortgaged the land he was actually living on. As far as we know, this was the only time he borrowed against his land.]

WILLIAM WALKER'S WILL

[Transcribed by Charlou Dolan]
Botetourt County, Virginia, Will Book B, pages 246-249, 261:
In the name of God Amen, I William Walker of Botetourt County and state of Virginia, Tho weak in body yet (through the Mercy & Goodness of God) Sound in Mind and Memory do constitute this my last Will and Testament and desire it to be received as such.
Imprimis, I most humbly bequeath my soul to God who gave it and my body to the earth from whence it was taken, as for my burial I desire it to be done in a descent and Christian manner. Touching Worldy affairs I will that all my Just debts be first paid and the surpless of my Estate to be divided as follows,
Imprimis, I give to my son John one certain tract of land called the Iron Spring place containing about 250 acres to him and his heirs forever, to whom I leave also one hundred and twenty five pounds which is now in his hands, also two bonds on George Hardy the first bond for one hundred dollars due in April 1812 the other bond calls for two hundred and fifty dollars due in the year 1815, he paying as follows, to my daughter Esther fifty pounds lawful money within two years from this date. To my daughter Agnes five pounds within three years from this date. To my daughter Mary five pounds within three years from this date.
Item. To my son George and James equally I give my land on Barbers Creek above Greenlees to them & their heirs forever.
To my son George I also give one half of the tract of land which is in dispute between Nathin Eakin and myself, he looking after the title at his own expense.
The other half of which, if gained, I give to my son William and my daughter-in-law Martha Walker equally.
To my son William I also give all that is now in his hands.
To my son James I also give all that is now in his hands, my riding mare excepted, also two bonds on George Hardy of one hundred dollars each, one of which is due in the year 1813, the other in the year 1814.

Charlou Dolan: When I first read the above will, I had hopes of finding the family Bible willed to James. Unfortunately, when I later got the inventory of James Walker, it did not include a family Bible, which means it may have been lost or accidentally destroyed before his death. There still exists the slight possibility that he might have given it to one of his children before he wrote his will. Although one would think that the oldest son or oldest child would be given the family Bible, in most cases the Bible went to the youngest child, as he or she was the last one to leave home, and most often the one the aged mother or father would be living with at the time of his or her death.

AGES OF WILLIAM WALKER'S CHILDREN

Charlou Dolan:
In the 1810 census, James Walker has both a male 26-45 and a male over 45 in the household . In the 1820 census James Walker again has a male 26-45 but no older male. Since William Walker specified in his will that James was to be the one who looked after him until his death, we can assume that James is the male 26-45 in each case, and William is the male over 45 in 1810. This would make James the youngest child of William Walker. James has to have been born between the years 1775 (not over 45 years old in 1820) and 1784 (already 26 by 1810). Since he married Jane Cardin in 1803, and was at that time probably at least 21, we can narrow his estimated birth down even further, to sometime between 1775 and 1782. Due to the fact that none of the other children were born anywhere near that late, he was probably born closer to the 1775 end of the range than to the 1782 end. Unfortunately, James died before the 1830 census, so we can't narrow his date of birth down any closer than that unless we find a gravestone for him.
It would appear then, that William Walker's children were probably born in the 20-year span from 1755-1775, although the range could easily be from 1750-1780. This makes the year of his birth as given on his tombstone (ca. 1725) completely reasonable. It does not, however, eliminate the William Walker who was 18 on the 1755 list of Rangers from consideration.
I have tried to estimate the ages of William's children as accurately as possible, based on censuses, year of marriage, ages of children, etc., but the estimates are too inaccurate to do more than tell us which of the children were probably the older ones and which were probably the younger ones. The only children for whom we have birth dates are William Jr. (from his pension application) and George (from his tombstone). Even in these cases, however, the year of birth when given by an old man or by a descendant is not considered a primary source, and is subject to possible error.
There do not, however, appear to have been any children born at all late enough to have been the children of his second wife, Mary Walker, if indeed it was William Sr. who married Mary Walker.

WILLIAM WALKER'S GRAVE

William Walker died 17 Aug 1810, and is buried in the Caldwell/Walker Cemetery in Craig Co., Virginia (right on the line of Botetourt Co, Virginia). His stone is still standing (tilted slightly forward) and legible (as of October 2007) and reads:

Wm WALKER
DECD AUGUST
THE 17 1810 IT
BEING THE 85
YEAR OF HIS
AGE

The stone is quite small, perhaps one foot by one and a half feet. We can assume his age is accurately given because he owned a family Bible at the time of his death.
The other stones in the cemetery appear to have suffered from damage rather than from erosion. The stones are made out of the kind rock where pieces can easily sheer off, plus cows have been wandering around breaking some of the stones. In April 1986 J. Tracy Walker and I read all the stones in the cemetery that were still legible [and as soon as I find the piece of paper I wrote the list on, I'll type it in here!]

The following people met in Craig Co., Virginia, in October 2007 and erected a fence around the Caldwell/Walker Cemetery:
John Tracy Walker III, 4th great-grandson of William Walker
John Tracy Walker IV, 5th great-grandson of William Walker
Larry R. Walker, 5th great-grandson of William Walker
Orin Lee Walker, 4th great-grandson of William Walker
Russell Allen Walker Sr., 4th great-grandson of William Walker


Death Notes: Wife - § Maybe Elizabeth

General Notes: Child - Agnes Walker



Charlou Dolan:
The primary researcher for the descendents of Thomas Harmon & Agnes Walker was Babe (Mrs. Clyde) Fowler, Roanoke, Virginia, who about 1986 sent me copies of her Harmon research.
Agnes "Nancy" Walker married Thomas Harmon, supposedly in 1774 in Botetourt Co., Virginia, although no record of the marriage has been found. Thomas was supposedly born in Augusta Co., Virginia, in 1750 and died 1814 [?] in Kanawha Co., Virginia [now West Virginia]. According to the DAR, Thomas enlisted in the militia in Augusta Co., Virginia, during the Revolutionary War. Later he lived in Greenbrier Co., Monroe Co., and Kanawha Co., Virginia. In general, we have had a lot of trouble finding the confirmation of what "everyone has always known" in respect to Thomas Harmon and Nancy (Walker) Harmon, and much more work must be done to firm up this line.
William Walker does not name a daughter Nancy in his will of 1810, but he does name a daughter Agnes. Based on other known instances, Nancy was originally a nickname for Agnes. The probability is that William Walker named all of his living children in his will, as well as the spouses of his deceased children. Since it is known that Thomas Harmon married a Nancy Walker, daughter of William Walker, and since Thomas Harmon is mentioned in the will of his father-in-law, William Walker, it is reasonable to assume that Agnes and Nancy are one and the same person. This is also logical since Thomas and Nancy named a daughter Agnes (nicknamed "Aggie"), but did not name a daughter Nancy, which would have been the customary thing to do if the mother's given name were actually Nancy.

General Notes: Child - William Walker



Charlou Dolan:
William Walker Jr.'s wife's name is still completely unknown. We have not yet found a William Walker marriage of a suitable time to be this William in any marriage records in Virginia. His daughter Esther was (according to her tombstone) born in 1784. Since she married in 1801, she would have been only 17 when she got married, meaning her birth year could not have been much later than what is given on her tombstone. On the other hand, as she lived until 1882, she could not have been much older than what her tombstone says. We therefore conclude, that her date of birth is reasonably accurate.
Since William Walker says he was born in 1759, and that would make him 21 in 1780, we are looking for a William Walker marriage from about 1777-1784, with it more likely falling between the dates of 1779-1783. The most likely possibility is that he was married in the Botetourt area, and the record of the marriage is lost. Since on the 1880 census his daughter Esther, who lived to be 98, said that her mother was born in South Carolina, we are also checking to see if he got married in North Carolina or South Carolina. Actually, it is incorrect to say that Esther said her mother was born in South Carolina--whoever gave the information to the census taker said that's where her mother was born, and we have no way of knowing who that someone was.
Within the time period 1777-1784, I have found no William Walker marriages in South Carolina and only three potential marriages in North Carolina:
21 Apr 1778 William Walker m. Mary Lowrey in Surry Co., NC.
17 Jul 1780 William Walker m. Agnus Aston in Rowan Co., NC.
8 Oct 1781 William Walker m. Fereby Fuller in Granville Co., NC.
In 1780 Surry County and Rowan County were both directly on the route between Botetourt Co., Virginia, and Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina. In fact, at that time, going north to south in North Carolina, there were only the three counties: Surry, Rowan, and Mecklenberg.
By checking on RootsWeb, I found that William Walker & Mary Lowrey lived and raised a family in Stokes Co., NC, with the first child born in Surrey Co., which eliminates her as the wife of our William Walker. Also on RootsWeb I found a post-em that says Fereby Fuller married Rev. William Walker, son of Rev. Samuel Walker, which would eliminate her. I have found nothing for a William Walker & Agnes Aston or Ashton or Austin, so I plan to check wills for those surnames in Botetourt Co., Rowan Co., Mecklenburg Co., and the counties surrounding each of those.
One other possibility that we had considered and been forced to reject is that William Walker Jr. might have bought land (as speculation) in Ohio Co., VA, and so have married there. His brother Henry and Henry's brother-in-law Archibald Woods both bought land there. In the SIMS INDEX for Ohio County, Henry Walker is listed as receiving a grant for 383 acres on Middle Island Creek in 1786 (Book 1, page 265l). A William Walker also received 400 acres on Fish Creek in 1789 (Book 2, page 564). However, upon checking, this William Walker is listed as "of Washington Co. and Fayette Co., PA," on the deed where he sells the land, and so cannot be the William Jr. we are looking for.

According to his pension application in 1833, William Walker Jr was born in Bedford Co., VA, in Mar 1759. In Sep 1778 he enlisted from Botetourt Co. and served under Col. Brodhead and Gen. McIntosh. They marched to Fort McIntosh. He was discharged in Feb 1779. He enlisted a second time in Dec 1780 from Botetourt Co. and served under Capt. James Hanley and Maj. David Cammel. He marched with the militia to North Carolina where they joined Gen. Morgan's party and fought at the Battle of Cowpens and on the banks of the Yadkin River. He was discharged again in Mar 1781.
The following is an account of this expedition written in a pension application by James Harbison, who enlisted in Capt. James Robinson's Militia Company in Botetourt Co., Virginia, in the fall of 1780:
"State of Indiana
Dubois County
On this 13th day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-two personally appeared in open court before the Judge of the Court of Probate now sitting, James Harbison of the County of Dubois and State of Indiana aged sixty-nine, who first being duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefits of the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832. That he entered the service under the command of Capt. James Robinson the fall before the battle of the Cow Pens and served six months. He volunteered in Botetourt Co., Virginia, and marched from there to North Carolina, and passed through the Moravian towns and Salisbury thence to South Carolina and was within a day's march of the Battle of Cow Pens. He then passed on through Kings Mountain and thence to Ramsours Mill, crossed on the dam in the night. He near Ramsours Mill, joined Morgans Regiment from thence he marched to the Island ford on Catawba River from thence he marched down the river to what was called the Horse ford on the Catawba River and heard the firing of the guns at the time General Davidson was killed on Catawba River he then marched to Salisbury in North Carolina he then marched to what was called the Bland? ford on the Adkin (Yadkin) River, he there was in a small battle with the British and Capt. Hanley was taken Prisoner. Then we marched into Virginia on Dan River where we were discharged, he thinks the discharge was signed by Major David Campbell but does not recollect, which discharge has been lost. He recollects Leutenant James Taylor Absolom Looney John Hawkins James Mathers Michael Ohare William Reynolds William Walker they volunteered at the same time and served with him and were discharged at the same time."
In the widow's application, we also learn that James Harbison served in the War of 1812, volunteering in Knox Co., TN, that she, Rachel (Hembree) Harbison is his second wife, and that her husband James died at Dubois Co., IN, 6 Oct 1841.
It would appear from the two slightly different reports of the expedition, that William Walker Jr and his group under Capt. James Hanley joined Morgan's regiment a few days before James Harbison's group under Capt. James Robinson, as William Walker reports he fought in the Battle of Cow Pens, and James Harbison reports his group joined Capt. Morgan's group immediately after the Battle of Cow Pens.

About 1784 William Walker Jr. moved to Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina, where he lived for about 10 years. On the 1790 census for Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina, there are two William Walkers listed. The first has 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, and 4 females. The second has 2 males over 16, no males under 16, and 2 females. We have therefore concluded that the first listing is possibly our William Jr., or possibly he and his family were living with someone else, and he does not appear as head of household at all.

About 1794 he moved back to Botetourt Co., Virginia. In May 1801 he signed a marriage bond there for his daughter Esther Walker to marry her cousin, William Snodgrass. About 1805 he moved to Knox Co., Tennessee.

On 5 Jan 1810 he bought a horse, cow, heifer, 3 sheep, 21 hogs, some farm implements, and misc. items from William Snodgrass, who we assume was the William Snodgrass who was his son-in-law. One complication is that there was also another William Snodgrass of unknown origin who was living in Knox Co., Tennessee, at this same time.

On 6 Jan 1812, William Walker signed the marriage bond for Fanny Walker to marry Western Warwick. We assume that this was his daughter, even though the bond didn't say specifically. On the same date a marriage bond was issued for Patsy [Martha] Walker to marry Christian Albright. On 12 Mar 1814 William Walker signed the marriage bond for Peggy [Margaret] Walker to marry John K. Owens.

In Oct 1821 William Walker of Knox Co., Tennessee, gave a power-of-attourney to his son Robert K. Walker:

FHL Film 503,070: Knox Co., Tennessee, Deed Book S-1, pages 555-556:
"Whereas I William Walker of the County of Knox and State of Tennessee am in possession of a freehold estate consisting of two hundred and thirty one acres of land whereon I now live and that I think proper to be absent from home for some time and as I leave some other business in this place unsettled I think proper to make an agent to handel all my business until I should return and direct otherwise or revoke his power Now Know all men by these presents that in consideration as aforesaid I the said William Walker have made constituted and appointed authorised and empowered my son Robert K. Walker of the county and state aforesaid my true and lawful attourney in fact for me and in my name and in my behalf" [gives him power to lease or sell the property as he sees fit.]

According to his pension application, William Walker moved to Preble Co., Ohio, about 1823. Unless he wandered around for a couple of years, this power-of-attourney would indicate that he actually moved about 1821. The discrepancy is easily explained--people didn't pay as much attention to dates in those days as they do now, and even now, people have trouble remembering exactly when they did something, such as moving. In fact, dates are what people generally make the most mistakes with, even today.

According to his pension application, he moved to Twin Township, Darke Co., Ohio, about 1828. Here again, there is a discrepancy. There is no male of the right age to be William Walker (70-80 years old) on the 1830 census in Twin Township, Darke Co., OH. On the other hand, in Preble Co., OH, there is a Henry Walker living in Monroe Twp., and right next door to him is a Christian Albright (see marriage of Christian Albright to Patsy Walker, above) and in addition to the male 40-50 and female 30-40 (which one would assume to be the parents of the small children in the household) there is also a male 70-80 years old. This appears to be William Walker, since his pension application says he was living in this area at this time.

In May 1831 he gave power of attourney to his brother George, to sell the land in Botetourt Co., Virginia, which they inherited jointly from their father. This power-of-attourney was registered in Darke Co., Ohio; Monroe Co., Virginia; and Botetourt Co., Virginia. On 15 Oct 1832 the land was sold to Hillery Ripley. The deed was signed by Martha Walker, by George Walker and wife Clorinda, and by George Walker as attourney in fact for William Walker. Henry Walker and Alexander Handley of Botetourt Co. certified that Martha Walker signed the deed.

20 Oct 1831 in Darke Co., Ohio., John K. Owen and William Walker witnessed an indenture of George Bumgardner, son of Pheraba Byers, to Daniel Bumgardner. [As John K. Owen was apparently the son-in-law of William Walker, and since William Walker was over 70 years of age at this time, we can assume that he was living in the household of John K. Owen when he lived in Twin Twp., Darke Co., Ohio, thus making it easy even for an old man to witness deeds along with his son-in-law.]

31 Dec 1831 John K. Owen and William Walker witness a deed between Isaac Walker and wife Delilah to Royston Ford. According to birthplaces listed on censuses, this Isaac Walker does not appear to be related to the Botetourt Co., VA, Walkers.

13 Apr 1832 William Walker and John K. Owen witnessed a deed from Isaac Walker and wife Delilah to William Walker. Since "our" William Walker witnessed the deed, he cannot be the one the land was sold to. On the 1850 Darke Co., Ohio, census, there is a William Walker age 42 with an Isaac Walker age 72 living in the household. The Isaac Walker was born in Delaware. (Also in the 1850 census is Thomas Walker age 68 born Delaware, George Walker age 66 born Ohio (next door to Thomas), John Walker age 44, born Pennsylvania, and Edward Walker age 37, born Maryland, besides the usual assortment of young Walkers born in Tennessee and Ohio, who are either part of these families or living near these families.) The biggest group in the census by far is the Deleware Walkers, and it would appear that this deed in 1832 is from Isaac Walker of Delaware to his son William.

In Nov 1833 William Walker, as a resident of Twin Twp., Darke Co., Ohio, applied for a pension from the federal government, based on his service in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War (see details of service above). John K. Owen and William Byers attested to the fact that they "are well acquainted with the said William Walker who has subscribed and sworn to the above declaration that we believe him to be seventy four years of age that he is respected and believed in the neighborhood which he resides, to have been a soldier of the Revolution and that we concur in that opinion."
The second recommendation was signed by James Davis, Sr., and goes as follows:
"I James Davis a Clergyman residing in said County of Darke and State aforesaid do hereby certify that I was acquainted with the said William Walker when he lived in the state of Virginia and that he has also been acquainted with him since he came to this county and that he believes him to be seventy four years of age that he is reputed and believed in the neighborhood where he resides to have been a soldier of the Revolution and that he believed him to be a man of Truth and veracity - and does concur in the opinion of the neighborhood where said applicant resides that he is a Soldier of the Revolution. [signed] James Davis, Sen."
This James Davis (coincidentally?) is the same James Davis who married Betsy Snodgrass in Botetourt Co., Virginia. We also need to check and see what the relationship is between the William Byers above and the Phereba Byers in the apprenticeship papers, and what connection they have, if any, to the Walkers/Owens.
Lastly, John Beers, Clerk of the Court in Darke Co., Ohio, testified that everyone else testifying was who they said they were.
William Walker was issued pension certificate #25733 on 27 Dec 1833 paid at a rate of $26.66 per year, retroactive to 4 Mar 1831 through the Ohio Agency, as authorized by the Act of 7 Jun 1832.

17 Aug 1834 John K. Owen and Wm. Walker witnessed a deed from Alanson Ashley and wife Jane of Preble Co., Ohio, to Ethelred Deok.

In 1835 William Walker appeared on the special census for pensioners residing in Ohio.

7 Mar 1838 William Walker signed an affadavit of identity, that he was the same William Walker whose name appeared on the pension certificate. This testament of identity was witnessed by John K. Owen, a Magistrate in Darke Co., Ohio, who said, "that I have the most satisfactory evidence (viz) personal knowledge that William Walker who has this day appeared before me to take the oath of identity is the identical person named in the pension certificate which he has exhibited before me numbered 25733 bearing date at the war office the 28th day of December one thousand eight humdred & thirty three."

On the same day William Walker signed a power-of-attourney giving Benny P. Jones the right to collect his pension for him. He had to swear that the so named attourney was not collecting the pension as payment for a debt. John K. Owen, Justice of the Peace in Darke Co., Ohio, took care of the oaths, etc., involved in granting a power-of-attourney. Benny P. Jones also signed, and John Beers, Clerk of the Court, testified that John K. Owen was a magistrate in Darke Co., Ohio.
The receipt signed by the said Benny P. Jones in William Walker's final payment voucher file at the National Archives (which is where the above affadavit of identity and power-of-attourney are also found) has the following notation on the outside:
William Walker/ $26.66/ Act 1832/ Ohio Roll/ Chg. Mrs. Hewson/ 11-28-39/ Jones/ 2/37 & 1 M 38 / H-319. No gravestone has been found for him [apparently no one has ever transcribed the gravestones in Twin Twp., Darke Co., Ohio], nor has he been found on the 1840 census so he probably died on or about the above date of 28 Nov 1839 at approximately 80 years of age. We have no idea what the "Chg. Mrs. Hewson" refers to as we can find no connection between any of the Walkers and any Hewson, either through marriage or through proximity.

No probate has been found for William Walker, but Everetta Haupert reports that the probate records for Darke Co., Ohio, are not in good order. They are kept in the "County Home," in an unused, unheated upstairs room, apart from the main buildings (in fact, several miles south of Greenville). Some are missing and some are mis-filed so it is impossible to say that no probate exists. Due to the fact that he apparently sold all his land before he died, however, the chances of his having had a probate are slight.

HENRY WALKER LETTERS

Charlou Dolan: I have copies of four letters written by Henry Walker to his brother-in-law, Archibald Woods, and one letter written to Henry Walker from his mother-in-law, Martha Woods. These letters are all in the Archibald Woods Manuscript Collection in the Manuscripts Dept., Swem Library, College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, and are used here with their permission. Archibald Woods was the brother of Martha (Woods) Walker. At the time the first letter was written, Archibald was probably living in Ohio Co., Virginia [now West Virginia]. At the time of the later letters, Archibald was living in Ohio. [Dr. = Dear, not doctor]

HENRY'S SIGNATURES

Charlou Dolan: When checking signatures of Henry Walker in Botetourt Co., Virginia, it appeared to J. Tracy Walker and me, that there were two different signatures (one on the marriage bond to marry Martha Woods which matched the one on Henry Walker's will, and a different one on the marriage bond for "my niece Polly Walker" to marry Mr. Givens), and therefore we thought there must have been two different Henry Walkers, with the one who signed the marriage bond for "my niece Polley Walker" being the unexplained one. As it turns out, the letters above are also signed with the two different signatures. When not just the signatures but also text of the marriage bond and the letters are compared, it is readily apparent that the handwriting is identical on all, leading us to the conclusion that there was one Henry Walker living in Botetourt Co., Virginia, during this time period, and that he simply made his capital H's in two different ways. The question then arises, who was his niece Polly Walker? Agness Woods of Montgomery Co., Virginia, testifies that "Polly Walker now living with Henry Walker in Botetourt County Creags Creek is twinty one years of Age... this 7th day of June 1799." There is a James Walker, wife Margaret (Woods) Walker, who names a daughter Polly Givens in his will. We know for sure (from deeds) that the James Walker who was the brother of Henry Walker was married to Jane, not Margaret.
The simple explanation (which now seems obvious, but which eluded us for years) is that Polly was Henry's niece because she was the daughter of his wife's sister, i.e. Martha (Woods) Walker and Margaret (Woods) Walker are sisters. There is indeed a Margaret Woods baptized in Augusta Co., Virginia, daughter of Andrew Woods, and Andrew Woods signed as surety on the marriage bond for Margaret Woods to marry James Walker. Martha (Woods) Walker is known to be a daughter of Andrew Woods, because she is named as such in his will. An uncertainty has arisen because Margaret is not named in Andrew Woods's will as being his daughter. There are, however, many proven instances of a father leaving one or more of his children out of his will, the most common reason for it being that the child in question has already received his or her portion, often at the time they married, especially in the case of daughters. Furthermore, James Walker is known to have married a second time, and it is quite possible that Andrew Woods did not name his daughter Margaret in his will, because she died before he did. This may also be the explanation of why Polly Walker is living with her uncle, instead of with her parents.

page 419: Andrew Woods, of Albemarle County, purchased western land first on the North Fork of Roanoke (1765) and later (1767) on Looney's Mill Creek where he lived until 1781. His will was probated on August 9, 1781, by Robert Harris, Jr., Andrew Clark, Wm. Ward and Mathew Wilson. The executors were his wife, Martha, and sons, Andrew and James. Andrew Woods was a son of Michael Woods, Sr., who came from Pennsylvania to Virginia in 1734. Martha Woods was Martha Poage, daughter of Robert Poage, of Augusta County. Their children were James, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Robert, Andrew, Archibald, Mary and Martha. James Woods married Nancy Rayburn and lived on the land on North Fork of Roanoke. Elizabeth Woods married David Cloyd, Jr., son of David Cloyd, of Buffalo Creek of Roanoke, and lived on the Cloyd land on Cedar Creek near Natural Bridge. This David Cloyd came to be known as David Cloyd, Sr., of Rockbridge County, and had a son, David, Jr., of the same place. Their graves in the High Bridge Church cemetery are plainly marked. Rebecca Woods married Isaac Kelly and lived in Ohio. Robert Woods married Lovely Caldwell and Elizabeth Goff and lived in what is now West Virginia. Mary Woods married James Poage and lived in Ohio. Martha Woods married Henry Walker and lived in Botetourt County.

A little later (1783) a new way was marked out from the place formerly Balliner's on Barber's Creek to the Sweet Springs. This was done by Wm. Hamilton, John Lewis, James Moss and John Galloway, the latter two being further interested in a bridle way being opened by Capt. Henry Walker from Craig's Creek to Thomas Price's, and extended by Thomas Price from his house to John Gallaway's and further extended by James Moss from the county line to James Brown's.

Our Branch of the Woods (Rev. Edgar Woods; Charlottesville, Virginia; 1894)
page 10: They [Henry Walker and Martha Woods, his wife] resided on the south side of Craig's Creek, opposite the mouth of Barber's Creek. Martha lost her husband in 1803. She continued to live on Craig's Creek until her family was grown, when she made her home with her youngest son, George Walker, who resided on John's Creek about 4 miles west of New Castle, Virginia. There she died on Dec. 14, 1834, and was buried in the family cemetery on the farm of John Walker a mile or two from her old home on the creek. Her funeral was notable on account of an exceedingly deep snow which covered the ground.

In the Virginia State Library is a list of the Church Members in the Fincastle Congregation (Presbyterian Church), dated 1803. It includes the name of Henry Walker as an Elder, with "dec'd" after his name. It also includes the name Martha Walker, and under the list of new applicants dated 20 Mar 1803 is the name Wm. Walker.


General Notes: Child - § Mary Walker



Charlou Dolan:
Mary Walker married Joseph Snodgrass, Jr., son of Joseph and Hannah Snodgrass of Tinkers Creek. She was apparently the family weaver, as her father left her a loom in the codicil to his will. She was a widow at the time her father died, as her husband had died in 1809. The order of the children is guessed at, based on censuses, ages at time of marriage, etc. The last 4 children were minors when Joseph Snodgrass signed his will 20 Jul 1809.
For a long time the wife of Joseph Snodgrass Jr. was thought to be Mary Bartley. The source of this information has always been, "The DAR says his wife was Mary Bartley." As a matter of fact, the DAR does not say that--the DAR doesn't "say" anything about genealogy, it just serves as a repository for information that other people submit. In this case, all claims that Mary Bartley is the wife of Joseph Snodgrass go back to the first application for membership in the DAR based on the service of Joseph Snodgrass Jr. I have personally checked in the DAR Library and discovered several interesting things. First of all, the original application does not include any source or reference for the claim that Mary Bartley is the wife of Joseph Snodgrass. (Not coincidently, the application was submitted by a descendant of Bartley Snodgrass.) The dates of birth and marriage that are traditionally given to Joseph Snodgrass [b. 26 Aug 1741] and his wife Mary [b. 11 Jan 1747] also originate with this application.
If these dates are to be believed, then Joseph and Mary were married for about 9 years before they had any children, then they had eleven children, ending when Mary was 57 years old. That is not biologically possible.
Another interesting thing to note, is that whereas the first application said Mary and Joseph were married ? ? 1771, the second application said they were married 7 Jul 1771. Evidently the person submitting the second application mis-read the question marks as sevens, and changed ? ? to 7 Jul.
The military service given for Joseph is also incorrect on the first application, as it says it is for Joseph Snodgrass, son of William. Our Joseph Snodgrass Jr. was indeed in the Botetourt Co., VA, militia, but in a unit with his brothers, not in the unit with the sons of William and Isabelle Snodgrass.
To support my claim that Mary Walker, daughter of William Walker, is the wife of Joseph Jr., I have the following evidence:
a) My great-aunt, Anna (Walker) Calhoun, wrote before she died, that William Snodgrass (son of Joseph Jr) and Esther Walker (daughter of William Walker Jr) were cousins. Normally, one would not give too great weight to someone's personal knowledge of their great-grandparents, however in this case it really was personal knowledge. Esther (Walker) Snodgrass lived to be 98, and lived for the last several years of her life in the same town as Anna (Walker) Calhoun. Anna was 17 years old when her great-grandmother died, so she had 17 years of direct contact with Esther (Walker) Snodgrass. Therefore we can in this case place a much greater reliance on Anna's information than we could if she had been born years after her great-grandmother died.
b) In his will William Walker Sr. named a daughter Polly (Mary) Snodgrass. He also named a son-in-law Isaac Snodgrass, and for years people have assumed that Mary Snodgrass was the wife of Isaac. This does not appear to be the case. From Isaac's recently discovered family Bible, we know that Isaac married Sarah Walker, who was deceased at the time her father, William Walker Sr., wrote his will.
c) Joseph Snodgrass Jr. names his brother-in-law John Walker as one of the two executors of his will. During that time period, brother-in-law had two meanings. It could mean the same thing as brother-in-law means today, but it could also mean step-brother. As Joseph & Hannah Snodgrass had died years earlier, Joseph Snodgrass and John Walker could not have been step-brothers. Therefore, John Walker had to be married to Joseph Snodgrass Jr.'s sister, or vice-versa. John Walker was married to Sarah Susannah Givens, and the evidence for that marriage is overwhelming. Furthermore, the husbands of all of Joseph Snodgrass Jr's sisters are known and proved. The only possibility which remains for Joseph Snodgrass Jr. to call John Walker his brother-in-law is if Joseph Snodgrass Jr. was married to John Walker's sister.
d) There is also as circumstantial evidence, the fact that none of Bartley Snodgrass's brothers and sisters named a son Bartley, whereas the name Walker occurs as both a first and a middle name in several of the other lines.
I find this evidence, namely the statement that William Snodgrass and Esther Walker were cousins, that William Walker had a daughter Polly Snodgrass, and that Joseph Snodgrass called John Walker his brother-in-law, adequate to disprove the Mary Bartley claim once and for all.

MILITARY SERVICE -- OUR JOHN OR NOT OUR JOHN?

According to the book Walker, Eakin, Preston and Allied Families of Botetourt and Bedford Counties, Virginia, by Mrs. Daniel J. Manton, available in the DAR Library, (page 25) "There is also Revolutionary service in the name of John Walker in the Cherokee Expedition - 1776 - under Col. William Christian. This is attributed to John Walker, born about 1755, son of William Walker." Also, "In 1819 a John Walker, aged 64, a resident of Roane Co., Tennessee, stated that he entered the service in 1777 from Botetourt Co., Virginia. (He had left Botetourt before 1810 census.)"
The information in the Walker-Eakin-Preston book sounds good for our John until one puts it together with the second quotation, which shows that there were two John Walkers in Botetourt Co., either of whom could have been the one on the Cherokee Expedition. We need to see the full pension application for the John in Roane Co., Tennessee, which should describe the service in complete detail.

CHANCERY COURT RECORDS

Following are two agreements made among most of the children of John Walker, which agreements are found in the chancery court records in Botetourt Co., in the case of Snodgrass vs. Walker:

[1st agreement]
"Article of agreement made and entered into this 14th day of October 1835 among and between the heirs and Legatees of John Walker Deceased, as follows, To wit, The Said John Walker Dec'd having departed this Life intestate, and at his death was seized of Valuable Lands and other estate and we the heirs and Legatees being willing and desirous that a partition of the Said estate may be made now and with as Little cost as possible and the Same may be done agreeable to Law and equitity and amicably among our Selves and believing it was the wish and intention of the deceased that his Sons Should have his Lands and his daughters Should have an equal portion of his estate in value. Therefore we now mutually agree that the Sons of the deceased my divide the Said Lands among them Selves either by contracting with each other or by arbitration or in any manner they may think proper provided the said Lands are estimated at their fair Value and those of the Legatees who may get Land of more Value than their portion of Said estate Shall pay unto the s'd administrators the amount so that each Legatee will receive an equal portion of the same after puting into hotch potch the amount [several words illegible due to crease in paper] and we do [illegible word] agree that each Legatee that may get Land on said partition Shall execute their bonds with approved security unto the said administrators for the benefit of said estate for the amount of the Value of the Lands received by each respectfully to be paid in four anual instalments with interest on the same after one year and the said administrators shall discount and give credit on each of the said bonds for the portion of each Legatee owing said bonds when said estate is settled and each of the Legatees do agree to Receive the Said bonds or any portion of them from the administrators in payment of their portion of said estate and do hereby bind themselves to convey by deed their interest to said Lands agreeable to the above intended divide & the true intent and meaning of the above agreement we each one bind our selves to the other in the penal sum of two thousand dollars as witness our hands and seals this date first above written
NB in case any of the Legatees should not be satisfied at the price the said Lands may be estimated at then & in that case the Lands may be valued by three good disinterested neighbours."

[2nd agreement]
Article of agreement made and entered into this 10th day of January 1838 by and between Susan Walker widow and relic of John Walker deceased, William Walker John McClaugherty and Sally his wife Elisha T. Walker Jacob Peck and Patsey his wife Henry Walker Isaiah H. Walker George H. Walker and John Shawver and Caroline his wife, Legatees of John Walker deceased.
Where as the said John Walker departed this life intestate leaving lands as yet undivided and to save expence and cost the above named legatees do agree to divide the same in the following manner, viz:
Each of the above named Legatees do bind themselves severaly to pay unto the said Susan Walker the sum of five dollars each anually during her natural Life the first payment to be due on the first day of January next in consideration of her dower on the said Lands and the said Susan is to retain the title of her said dower and to have her choice at all times to take possession of her said dower of the lands on Craigs Creek, but in case the said widow should choose to take the possession of her dower then the above sum to be paid anually to the owner of the land in which her dower may be laid off. the said legatees do hereby give unto the said Susan Walker, widow, the use of the room upstairs in the dwelling house with a fireplace also one other small room of her own choosing, the privilege of using the kitchen and half the garden during her natural life gratous. The above named Legatees do hereby choose Joseph Hannah John Spessard and Joseph B. McCartny as arbitartors to value and divide the said Lands as follows, viz, to divide the home place including the piece of Land where William Walker lives in three shares but in case that either William Elisha or George should not be satisfied with the divide then the said arbitrators to divide the pice of Land where William lives for one Lott and divide the home place in two lotts as equal in Value as the nature of the place will admit and the said William Walker is to have the place where he lives, Elisha T. Walker to have the home house place, and George H. Walker to have the lower end of said place together with any other part that the Said arbitrators may add to it to make an equal Share in Value and each of those three Legatees shall pay to the other legatees their portional parts for the pice of Land by them purchased agrreeable to the valuation to be paid in five anual instalment the first payment to be due on the first day of January next and to pay interest on all ballances due from the said first day of January 1839 till paid and the said William Elisha and George may pay any of the other Legatees that they may choose the portions due to each Legatee and it is agreed by the parties that the Valuation and divide of the Lands be consolidated with the personal estate and any money due or coming to the said William elisha or George from their fathers estate may be discounted as part pay for the purchase of the said Lands respectively, but the administrator is to have no fee nor commission on the Lands except the part Sold at public auction (if any) The above named Arbitrators are respectfully requeested to avlue the whole boundry of Land on craigs creek at what they or a majority of them thinks it is worth taken into consideration the way it is to be paid for and then say what sum each of the three Legatees shall pay for their Lott of Land as above stated and the mountain place to be valued in the same way but not divided--but in case that William Elisha or George or either of them refuses to take the pice of Land laid off for them at its valuation then either of the other legatees may take the same piece of Land on the same terms, but in case neither of the Legatees chooses to take any of said parcels of Land or the mountain place on the same terms then and in that case the administrators of the said estate is hereby authorized and requested to Sell the said Lands that neither of the Legatees chooses to take at valuation at public sale to be paid infour or five anual instalments with interest after the first instalment becomes due for the benefit of the said Estate, and the said legatees do hereby bind them selves to convey their tittle to the said Lands so soon as they severally receive the pay for the same.
It is being understood by the parties that Daniel G. Walker has received his portion of his fathers estates in his fathers life time and he being willing to keep the same for his portion therefore he is not party to this article.
And it is understood and believed by the parties that John Walker who Received His portion of this estate in his father's Lifetime, who removed to the western country and departed this Life years ago.
And Robert Snodgrass (who married Polly Walker now deceased) declines being a party to this Article of agreement (the said Polly Walker departed this life previous to the death of her father) and the parties not knowing whether or not the said Robert Snodgrass received his full portion of the estate therefore in case the heirs of the said Polly Snodgrass or the heirs of the said John Walker (if any) should have any Lawfull claim to any portion of the said Lands or any other portion of the said Lands should be [illegible word] from the aforesaid Legatees then each one of the Legatees is to pay their proportional part.
To the true intent and meaning of the foregoing article of agreement We the Subscribers bind ourselves severly each one to the other in the sum of one thousand dollars as witness our hands and seals the date first above written.
NB the expense of making the above divide is to be paid by the administrator of John Walker's estate and to have a credit for the same on settlement.

George left a will in Madison Co., Indiana, which is referred to in a deed (see below). Unfortunately, the courthouse in Madison Co. burned twice, first about 1840, and later about 1880. There are no wills or probate or estate records before 1880. Luckily, however, the land records were in a courthouse annex rather than in the main courthouse and so did the deeds did not burn. The census records indicate the possibility that George had more than just the two daughters who have been identified, which children might have been named in the lost will.

Madison Co., Indiana, Deed Book ?, page ?: 21 Feb 1837, Theodore S. Walker, Executor of the Estate of George Walker, decd., late of Madison Co., Indiana, sold to James Gray of the same place the East 1/2 of the Northwest 1/4 of Section 19 (the land purchased in 1833 from Franklin Neele), "being thereof seized aforesaid, the said George Walker on the 18th day of August, 1835, made his Last Will...in which he ordered & directed his Executor to sell and convey the said tract of land...and he died without altering the said will in any way."

Madison Co., Indiana, Deed Book ?, page ?: 18 Oct 1837 Clarinda Walker of Madison Co., Indiana, sold a tract of land to John W. Walker of the same county. The land is part of the Northwest 1/4 of Section 28, Township 18 North, and also the adjoining piece in Section 29 and Section 20 in Township 18 (apparently the land purchased in 1833 from Manley Richards & wife Catherine).

Madison Co., Indiana, Deed Book ?, page ?: 3 Jun 1838 Clarinda Walker made a loan of $200 to Theodore S. Walker and Malinda his wife, with land as a security. The mortgage was paid in full on 4 Dec 1843.

Madison Co., Indiana, Deed Book ?, page ?: 31 Jul 1838 Clarinda Walker loaned $325 to Nathaniel M. Richmond of Madison Co., Indiana. This mortgage was to be paid in full by 1 Jan 1839, but it was not paid off until 28 Mar 1840. On the 1850 census, Clarinda is living alone next door to Nathaniel Richmond, clergyman.

HISTORY & BIOGRAPHY

Charlou Dolan:
George Walker married second Clorinda Woods. The date and place of their marriage has not been found, but a descendant of George Walker (Josephine Wilson) is the source for Clorinda's surname. In a biographical sketch of one of his descendants, his wife's surname is given as Adams, and it also says that George was married twice, which fits in with the information I have found so far.
George Walker moved to Monroe Co., Virginia [now West Virginia] and resided there until about 1833 when he and his wife Clorinda moved to Madison Co., Indiana, with several of their sons, possibly moving first to Tennessee.
George is buried in the Grovelawn Cemetery, Fall Creek Township, Madison Co., Indiana. He has the distinction, therefore, of being the only child of William Walker for whom a tombstone has been found.
The last record I have for Clorinda Walker is the 1850 census, where she is living alone in Madison Co., Indiana, in the same township as several of her sons. I have not found a death record for her, nor found where she is buried. It seems unlikely that she would have remarried after the age of 84, so she should be buried under the name Clorinda Walker.

Signed: James Wilson
Witness: Michael C. Steves Frances Flashart Michael Fleager
Signature of Thomas Wilson also appears. (This document does not show Elizabeth as the wife of James Wilson when he gave land to his son Josiah Wilson. According to one of the old letter received by Mrs. Nettie Holmes, Josiah had a step-mother. So it may be that James Wilson of Botetourt County, Va. was the father of Josiah, but Elizabeth, who was James wife in the latter 1790's was not the mother of Josiah Wilson.)

Botetourt County, Virginia, Deed Book 6 page 517: This indenture made this 11th day of September in the year of our Lord 1798 between James Wilson and Elizabeth his wife of Botetourt County and State of Virginia of the one part and their son Thomas Wilson of said County and State of Virginia on the other part witnesseth that for and in consideration of the natural love and affection the said James and Elizabeth his wife bears to the said Thomas their son and for the further consideration of one dollar to them in hand paid current money of said State by the said Thomas the receipt whereof they do hereby acknowledge and by the represent acknowledge hath given granted and sold and by these present doth give grant alein and confirm unto the said Thomas Wilson a certain tract or parcel of land containing 75 acres be the same more or less as is contained in the boundaries hereafter written said tract is part of a tract of 246 acres granted to James Patton by a patent bearing date the 3rd day of Nov MDCCL, and by said Patton conveyed to Hance Maurie by a deed admitted to record at Augusta March Court 1754 and conveyed by said Maurie to said James Wilson by a deed bearing date 20 June 1769.
Signed: James Wilson Elizabeth Wilson
At Botetourt September Court 1798. This deed of gift was exhibited in court and acknowledged by James Wilson and Elizabeth his wife, she having been first privately examined as the law directs and thereupon ordered to be recorded. (This passage identifies the land and the original patent, stating that it was first patented by James Patton. He is part of our family.

Signed: James Wilson
Witness: Thomas Crow Josiah Wilson

[Charlou Dolan: Thus we see that Josiah Wilson had wife Margaret, and he was a brother of Thomas Wilson who had wife Esther. Josiah and Thomas received land from their father James Wilson, now deceased when these deeds were made. This land was located on Craig's Creek, in Botetourt County, Virginia. Josiah and Thomas, by these deeds, are selling the land to one James Wilson of Botetourt Co.,Virginia, either their brother or their nephew. From these deeds, we know that James Wilson was in Old Augusta (now Botetourt) County, Virginia, as early as 1754 when he received the land by deed from Hance Maurie.]
