THE DAVID WALKER FAMILY
Who are the parents of David Walker Sr. See Walker Records as we try to unravel the mystery.
Many of the "Our" David Walker records came from Ann and Barbara with the rest of us contributing. If I have not given credit where credit is due, please let me know. Others researching this family include Nancy, Sue, & Mary.
The first mixup came from Edward P. Valentine Papers when David Walker Jr.'s will is written as David Watkins. David Jr. died before his father in 1772 and mentioned his wife Frances, but we have not found her last name as yet. The Douglas Register carried it correctly.
#1 - David Walker Sr. m. Mary - (Several researchers have carried her as Mary Perkins, dau. of Nicholas, but we have not been able to find anything that will substantiate the claim [Barbara])
From Barbara to James - e-mail Nov 1997 - "Only new discovery was finding a genealogy on the Nicholas Perkins Descendants in Danville (VA) library. There was a deed reference in it pertaining to David Walker (d. 1774 Goochland Co.). Amos Lead (Ladd) deeded land to David in 1721 in Henrico Co. Amos was married to a daughter of Nicholas Perkins. Only significance of this is that David was in Henrico by that date and an adult. "
16 Jun 1758 - Goochand Co., VA - Deed Book 7-300 (from Ellnora L. Young) David Walker Sr. gives a parcel of land in Goochland Co. containing 140 acres to his "loving son David Walker of the aforesaid county"..
David Walker Sr. died Feb 1774 - will dated 15 Feb 1774 and recorded 16 May 1774 in Goochland
Co. His funeral was 26 Feb 1774. Court division of David Walker Sr's property.
Mary Walker died 1777. Her will was proved 20 October 1777.

|ii||Peter Walker, who m. 1766 Sarah Wadley (also have him m. to Elizabeth Harris) (Marriage to
Sarah found in Douglas Register, p. 48) It is believed that Peter m.

|iii||John Walker, d.
1791, Greene Co., GA; m. 1751, Alblemarle Co., VA Elizabeth
Hunter, d. 1803, Hancock Co., GA - dau of John Hunter and Henrietta Davidson.
All dates, etc. from Sue & Barbara G. Please contact either of them for more
information. (Many have wonder if this John is really the son of our David Walker
Sr. - I believe the evidence gathered proves he is - he names his children almost the same
as his siblings. And with the info Sue has found in GA, this may be the link for
many other descendants of John Walker)
