James Walker is descended from a Thomas Walker, b ca 1660 of Orange Co, VA. Thomas Walker had 8 children and named 3 of his sons as heirs in his Will. In tracing this line, one must know these three names are repeated by each of the brothers in the succession of the family lines. Thomas Walker had a son named Thomas Jr; and also sons named James and Charles. Charles Walker had a son named Charles Walker Jr, as well as sons named James and Thomas. James Sr had sons named James Jr, Thomas and Charles. These are found cross referenced in a 'Walker Family History" by a Mrs. Ashworth, of Huntington, WV., published in 1996.
She traced the Walkers of Orange, Giles, Campbell and Wayne Co. VA/WV
Lucretia/"Lucinda" mar Silas Bell and Elias Gilpin and 1 other named Brooks?
I am related to a Charles E Walker Jr, a brother to your James Walker who left Kentucky and is found in the State of Texas as one of the Pioneers in Stephen F Austin's colony in Washington and Brazos Cos Texas. James Walker died in 1836 in Washington Co. Texas. His son John Walker owned and operated the Saw and Grist Mill in Washington Co.
