Looking for any information on this Samuel G. Walker, born 1770-1780. William G. Walker, born abt 1803 SC
and any connection to Henry B. Boyd. All are in Pickens County, Alabama - mid 1820s - 1830s.

Pickens Co. AL 1830 census at 50-60 years old: 1 male 20-30; 3 males 15-20; 2 males 10-15; one female 5-10;
female 50-60 (assume Sam's wife).
This would indicate that Samuel and wife were born between 1770-1780.

Samuel G. Walker 160 ac (BLM records) Acquired land 20 MAR 1827.
