I am a desendent of Joseph Walker and Betty Smith. I have a copy of a family history that says Joseph was born Mar. 19, 1812 in Yorkshire, England. (Parents Samuel and Sarah Walker) His wife. Betty, was born to Steven and Mary Smith, Oct. 8, 1812, in Yorkshire, England.

Joseph Walker was one of the first settlers of Iron County, (UT) in the group lead by George A. Smith in Jan. of 1851. He helped settled Parowan, and the following Nov. moved on to Coal Creek to help found Cedar City where the Iron works would be built.

He and his sons became identified with the Iron Industry, and he built and operated the first Grist Mill in Cedar City. He and his sons worked in the lumber and saw mill, and opened and operated 3 Coal Mines in Coal Creek Canyon.

I have much more information and would be happy to share it with you. Write and let me know what you already know and I will contact you later. He is a hero in my eyes, and I would like to tell you why.

I came across this message and a couple of names intrigues me, your name Harris as well as the Walker line.

Does your Harris line go back to a Nathan Harris, husband of Rhoda Lapham. One of their sons was Martin Harris, one of the three witnesses.

The Walker line; is there any connection to a Samuel Walker husband of Phoebe Green and does this line connect into a family by the name of West?

I have just been looking on here after my mum has done research on our family tree.

I believe we are related to Joseph Walkee (my 3rd great grand uncle).

My mum (Denise Gibson nee Beesley) has the family tree on here.
Would love to hear from you!
