Looking for information on several Walker' listed in the provincial militia during the French and Indian War and years preceding. These are from rolls taken in Frederick and Prince George’s Counties.
A Zachariah Walker is listed in 3 muster rolls - Capt. Moses Chapline for 55 days service, Capt. Joseph Chapline for 32 days service, and Capt. Peter Bainbridge for 28 days service. These 3 units were formed during the French and Indian War and mustered from Frederick County Maryland. A Nathaniel Walker deeded lands “Virgin’s Delight” and “Lamar’s Generosity” to a Zachariah Walker on January 26th 1763. These lands were previously held by Nathaniel’s father Charles Walker. Seeing that Zachariah is in service during the French and Indian War I assume that he is a brother or cousin of Nathaniel Walker and would be born ca 1730. In 1770 Zachariah sells the 2 tracts mentioned above and wife Sarah releases dower. Does anyone have names of children for this Zachariah Walker and wife Sarah???
A Richard Walker JR. is listed in Capt. Joshua Beall’s of Prince George’s County Muster Roll during the French and Indian War. Does anyone have a clue who this Richard JR. is and what Prince George County family he belongs to? I do know that Charles Walker and Rebecca Isaac had a child named Richard Walker born 1710 in St. Barnabas Parish – but this Richard is not named in the will of Charles Walker dated 1730. Is this Richard Jr. a son of Richard Walker Sr. and grandson of Charles and Rebecca or from another Walker family? Does anyone have children for this Richard Walker JR?
Prince George’s County Provincial Militia 1748 – a Richard Walker and Thomas Walker are listed side by side in Capt. Tobias Belt’s company. This seems to be a peace time militia with men mustering monthly as required by law. Other surnames that relate to the Walker’s of PGC are listed – Duvall, Brashears, Howard, Chaney, Peach, and Prather. The Thomas Walker is probably the son of Dorman Walker but here is Richard Walker again.
Any help or insight would be appreciated.
