Incorrect, John Walker(Rachel Crowshaw), dau Connegan Lamkin

Several sources on the Internet consistently state that the captioned John Walker, who m Rachel Croshaw was father of Connegan Walker. That John d April 17, 1713 was NOT the father of Connegan (spelled several ways) (Walker) wife of Thomas Lamkin b ca 1620 England d aft. 1656 Northumberland Co., VA.

Thomas Lamkin in some sources was m to Ellenor. He may have m Ellenor by whom he had the oldest child,Jarmingham Lamkin b ca 1643 "Yoacomaco," Northumberland Co., VA. There were other children, two of those approaching adulthood, were had named in John Walker's will of Northumberland Co., VA, which was some 60 years earlier then that of John/Rachel who died in 1713.

Perhaps there was another Connegan Walker?

Edward Walker, ship master, (will 9/20/1656 Northumberland Co., VA left all to son John). I believe that Edward was probably brother or certainly related to my Thomas Walker 1st of Northumberland (next door property) brought over his son John & wife Sarah Johnson with others in 1650. Edward made earlier trips bringing others. Thomas Walker 1st's son William lived on the other side of Edward Walker.

The following will info was typed many years ago by a researcher of VA records. Hopefully the original of the will if I can now obtain a copy would be more lucid as to whom "the child" is referring to in the following will of John Walker that I am posting; I fear that some of the will was omitted when it was transcribed:

In the name of God amen; I, John Walker of the county of Westmoreland being sick in body but in perfect sense and memory and calling to mind the state and frailty of man in this transitory life knowing that all flesh must die doe therefore bequeath my soul unto the Almight God which giveth life and my body to the earth and all my worldy goods in form and like manner as follows:
Imprimis: It is my will to make my well beloved friend Thomas Dodson my administrator and to take a true and just inventroy of what estate I shall have and to take such course and care for it to the best advancement of it as that I hope will be done.
Item: I give unto John Lampkin one heifer.
Item: I give unto George Lamkin one heifer
Item: I give unto my eldest daughter Cernengan(sp?) Lamkin all her mother's wearing clothes and as for the rest of my estate, I doe freely give and bequest unto my well beloved son in law all my land that is mine or belonging to me, with the rest of my estate moveabley and immoveably with what land is mine or belonging to me I doe freely give unto my well beloved son in law Thomas Lampkin; it is my desire also that the said child should be brought up to read the Bible and to writing for its my desire that he may be brought up to knowledge and to have the fear of God which charge I trust my admr. will not be unmindfull to see done; it is my will that as for the land it may be planted that they pay a yearly rent towards the maintaining of the said orphan and I hoping that these and every of these above written and mentioned in this my last will and testament will be accomplished and doe hereby revoke and reclaim all other wills and doe hereby confirm this to be my last will and testament. As witness my hand and seal. John Walker
Signed sealed and delivered in the presence of
