In Reply to: Walker family by kent walker of 1220

In the book a History of Greenup Co., Ky. The "Wurts family came from Wurtenburg, Germany and settled in Philadelphis, Penn.. In 1847 three brothers, William, George and Samuel Grandin Wurts came to Greenup Co. to engage in the furnace business. With them was Benjamin King, who had married Ann Wurts, a sister of the Wurts brothers. They built Pennsylvania Furnace in 1847 and Laurel Furnace in 1848. The families lived at Laurel, which they operated about twenty years." It goes on to say William Wurts went to Maysville, where he married late in life.
The Walker Family says James Walker married Nancy one of the 7 daughters of Aaron and Mary Clingman Kinney of Portsmouth, Ohio. The children were William, Samuel, Mary and Peter Kinney.
