Regarding Some Brunswick, VA Walkers ...

I am not related to the Walkers but I married
into a family that has Walker relatives in
the Brunswick, VA area. I have been doing some
research for a few Walker families. I am now
on the last legs of that research. So I am
sharing some of that research here, with the
hope that it may be of help to somebody.

Spencer Walker and Roana (unsure of spelling)
Walker had a lot of children including Lacy B.
Walker.

From a little ad hoc research, a little praying
and from speaking with a few Walker elders, here
is what I know:

Spencer Walker, Sr. had several children,
including Edward Branch Walker (AKA Eddie).
Eddie married Mary Barner (Mary's parents--if
memory serves me correctly are James and Violet
Barner of Brunswick County, VA (Mary also had
siblings named Harvey, Sr. and Jerry Sr. (Jerry
Sr. may have married a Graves and moved his
family to New Jersey)).

Eddie Walker and Mary Barner were found on a
census with her parents during the early days
of their marriage. Eddie and Mary had a large
family. Yes, there are many Walkers and just
as many Walker clans. Unfortunately, everyone
knows they have Walker descendants and cousins,
but they don't always know how they're related,
so more diaglogue is needed ...

Anyway, Eddie and Mary had several children who
were instrumental in the education field, some
of them even worked for St. Paul's College in
Lawrenceville, VA. The late Jesse Lee Walker, Sr,
(who was born to Eddie Walker and Mary Barner)
did a lot along educational lines; he died
approximately two to four years ago, and his
obituary ran in a Richmond (city), Va newspaper,
which listed his parents as being Edward Branch
Walker and Mary Barner Walker.

Recently there has been some talk of a Walker
family reunion, which is in the development
phase. This reunion is in honor of early
Walker, Graves and other ancestors. I found this
link through a google search engine (by searching
on the words Walker Family Reunion; see the link
below).

Another site that have proven useful to me in my
researches is findagrave.com (see the link below).

May many successes follow your efforts, even the
humble ones ... because little by little is how
a house is built.

Wishing you all the best in your research,
