I am looking for more information on a Thomas WALKER, born in 1798 (in Bedford County or Princess Anne County)

His parents were: George Reynolds WALKER, SR. (1760-1822) and Lucy WEST (1773-1847)

Their children who lived past childhood were:
Elizabeth Seaton WALKER (1793-1825) m. Mills ROBERTSON
John West WALKER (1796-) m. Elizabeth HACKWORTH
Thomas WALKER (1798-)
Delaware West WALKER (1803-1887) m. Ann HOWES
Louisa Barlow WALKER (1805-1832)
Charlotte West WALKER (1808-) m. Nicholas HACKWORTH

George Reynolds WALKER, Sr. had a son from a previous marriage to Judith HAYNES (d. 1787):
George Reynolds WALKER, Jr. (1784-1873) m. Rebecca HAMER

None of the family information available online seems to have any information on George and Lucy's son Thomas, who was born in 1798...I'm looking for any additional information on him that might be available.

Also, George Reynolds WALKER, Sr.'s Revolutionary War Pension Application states that he died in 1822 and was buried on his farm in Bedford County? Does anyone know where this cemetery is located? The family owned property in the Goose Creek area in the first two decades of the 1800s.

Thanks in advance,
