The grantors to Ben Walker are not his children, but could be inheritors in another family who sold their land to Benjamin rather than break up the acreage. Ben Walker was born in ? , NC on June 16, 1808 and died on November 3, 1867 in Harris County, GA. His wife was Martha Mahala Wahoon Vaughn who was born on February 11, 1812 in Oglethorpe County. Her parents were William Vaughn and Sarah Colley from Amelia County, VA. Mahala died in Harris Co., GA on January 27, 1883.

I have seen a will with most of the William Jr. grantors listed as spouses or heirs of William Walker,Sr. whose wife was Sarah Lambert. The will stated that William, Jr. would inherit the land when he was of age. William, Sr. was born in 1759 in Anson County, NC and died on January 22, 1822 in Oglethorpe Co., Georgia.

The will was from a gedcom sent to me. Spacing and punctuation above were changed to accommodate the line length. Some could not be edited before posting.
