A Melungeon lady named Martha Walden, wife of Micajah Walden, had sons charles and Ambrose Franklin, either illegitimately or from a previous marriage. These sons died in the Rev. War, and she made claim as their heir. "According to the testimony of Micajah Walden, administrator of their estate, their heirs were granted land warrants for 228 acres. They were also granted an additional 412 acres to be released when there was additional proof of their death. The additional land was released on 13 December 1805 when Micajah Walden presented the testimony of SAMUEL PARKER, HENRY PARKER, and James Bradley, Captain of the North Carolina Regiment of Halifax."
