W.J.Riley Walker s/o Lenard H & Elizabeth Walker-Barnwell Co SC & Madison & Duval Co FL

Looking for information on W.J.R. (Riley) Walker, son of Lenard H. & Elizabeth Walker. In 1850 they were in Barnwell Co SC & 1860 in Madison Co FL, in 1870 in Duval Co, FL. WJR Walker served in the Confederacy from Florida and by 1870 (or perhaps earlier) seems to have died. There is a marriage in 1862 in Madison Co between Miley A. Parnell and W.T. (misreading of J. to T?) Walker. They may have had a son Frankie who died in early childhood. Millie m2.W.D. Scarborough.

The siblings I find for Riley Walker are: Madora, Mary, Augustus, Mat D. (sometimes given as Daniel M.), John, Eliza, William, George.

I found a marriage for a H. Madora Walker first to a B.F. Buchanan in 1863 Madison Co and then Madora Buchanan to a William King in 1866 in Madison Co. Assume she was the same as the daughter of Lenard & Elizabeth, sister to Riley but have not confirmed it.

I would be interested to hear from any descendants of Lenard & Elizabeth Walker to see what they know of this family group.
