Col John Walker 1728-1796 children

Col John Walker 1728-1796 children

Surnames: Walker
Hello, there are over 30 trees containing Col John Walker 1728-1796. There are children mentioned as his that I believe are not and I cannot verify them. The ones I cannot verify are:

Edward or Edward B. or Edward B. Markham Sr. or Edward Walker 1756-1838 nine trees,
Rachel 1751-1818 five trees,
John 1755-1803 eight trees,
Jesse 1755-1795 nine trees,
James 1756-1841 one tree,
Capt George 1750-1833 two trees,
Walter no dates two trees and
William 1758-1848 three trees.

I cannot prove or disprove that the above children were from Col John Walker. If you can prove the linkage, by all means let me know about it. I do know that based on the 1952 Walker genealogy in my posession they were not listed as his.

The eight Col John Walker children identified in that document are:
Felix 1753-1796 Va.,
John 1755-1803 Va.,
James Reuben 1757-1833 N.C.,
William Daniel 1760-1841 N.C.,
Thomas 1762-1810 N.C.,
Joseph 1765-? N.C.,
George 1768-1819 N.C., and
Jacob 1771-1842 N.C..

My mother was a Walker. Her sister and I were talking one day and she mentioned that she had a genealogy from around 1952 that her mother gave her. It was researched and put together by her cousins. The following is from that document:

John Walker, was born in 1728. Settled on the South Fork of the Potomac river, Hampshire County West Virginia. He married Elizabeth Watson in 1751. Their children that were born in Virginia were Felix born in 1753 and John born in 1755. Sometime between 1755 and 1757, They moved to North Carolina, and located on Lee Creek, Lincoln County, about ten miles east of Lincolnton. Their children that were born in North Carolina were: James Reuben 1757; William 1760; Thomas 1762; Joseph 1765; George 1768, and Jacob 1771. In 1763 he moved to Crowders Creek, About four miles from Kings Mountain. In 1768 they moved to the mouth of Green river, Rutherford County, where he died in his sixty-eighth year, Jan. 25, 1798. A few years later his faithful wife was laid beside him. The two solitary graves may be seen today on a gentle knoll, at a spot about three hundred yards west of the point where Green and Broad rivers unite, in Polk county. Two crude stones mark the last resting place of this devoted couple.

The correct dates for the John who is the son of Col Walker should read 1755-1834.

Ken, My Mother was a Walker. I have the Walker Trail genealogy book that has the same information that you are talking about. Our lineage stems from Col. John Walker; Felix Walker; Thomas Jefferson Walker; Felix Ervin Walker; then my mother, Culie Nelline Walker Kennedy. I was born in Troy, Alabama but lived on the Kennedy homestead in the Vidette Community of Crenshaw County. Aunt Nellie Walker Byrd began the Walker family reunion at her home then it was held at the Rodgers School House. Now it is held in October at the home of Farrell and Ruth Walker.

Do you know if any of the descendants of those you have listed above moved/immigrated to what may have been Lower Canada? In particular a large area of what is now called New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I have a Matthew Walker who I presummed may have been born about 1762 (but not yet proven)and birth place not known. I'm casting a "wide net" here as many of the names listed above are those that have been carried down his family line and I believe my Matthew Walker may have been connected to Virginnia/North Carolina Walkers, yet not proven with any documentation.

Hello, back in the late 50's and early 60's I would attend the Walker family reunions at my grandparrents home in Bay Minette, Al. My mom was the oldest of the Kirby and Ida Walker's seven children. Kirby was the son of Felix. I have photos of them when he was a child outside their home. Mom had two sisters,one is still alive and four brothers, one is still alive. One of her brothers was also named Farrell. His wife is from Germany. He married her while he was still in the Army.

No, sorry, he lived in Alabama his whole life and worked for the L&N railroad. In the late 50's he was track supervisor for them.

Is the James Reuben Walker you mentioned in the 21 Jul 2008 query under "col John Walker 1728-1796 children" the same James Reuben Walker (allowed pension claim #s 3447),who was married to Sarah McHerd (Mcharg)? These two are my 4th great grandparents.

Is the 1952 genealogy of Col John Walker the same as the published book "Col. John Walker and Family? I found a page of the book on Ancestry.com as a hint for my James Reuben Walker which mentions my James Reuben Walker as being a 3rd son of Col. JOhn Walker and that he was married to Sarah McHerd.
