GEORGE E. WALKER, a prosperous farmer of Smith’s Precinct, Marshall County, was born June 24, 1818, in Mecklenburg County, Va. When he was fourteen years old, his parents, Robert and Rebecca (Johnson) Walker, removed from Virginia to middle Tennessee, and there George E. attained his manhood, and resided until coming to Marshall County, Ky., in 1852; his parents died in middle Tennessee. Mr. Walker was married February 24, 1842, to Miss Susan J., daughter of Thomas and Catherine Layne, nee Ulty. She was born in Tennessee, April 29, 1824. Mr. Walker, on coming to Marshall County, purchased 160 acres of land on which he now lives, and which he has highly improved. He is a practical farmer, having devoted his entire life to this pursuit. In politics he is a Democrat, but feels a pardonable pride in the fact that he has always taken advanced ground on the subject of temperance, and strongly advocates absolute prohibition. He is a member of the Missionary Baptist Church and of the Masonic order. Mr. and Mrs. Walker have had a family of fourteen children, whose name in the order of age are: Wm. T., Martha (Liles), John J., Robert S., Benjamin G., Susan E. (Roach), Marshall F., Hardin G., Susan E. (Roach), Marshall F., Hardin G., Frances C., Andrew J., Richard H., Gustavus A. and Rebecca J. Walker. William T., Martha, Benjamin G., Francis C., and an infant are deceased. Mrs. Catherine (Ulty) Layne died March 4, 1881, in her ninetieth year, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Walker.
