I have an Aunt Olga who is a Horrell. I'm trying to find information on my Great-Great Grandfather or GG Great Mother, Samuel S. and Abbey(Abigale?) Walker from the Atkinson, Currie, Point Caswell areas.

I found in land deed records where there are mant land transfers between them and children. Samuel's children, one my G Grandfather Richard Pierce Walker, Charles, Samuel James, Robert, Eliza or Elizabeth, Martha, Joseph.

Ther is a transfer between Alex. Mc Alister to Richard and one from Abbey to Samuel, etc. I'm trying to trace beyond Samuel S. Actually, I have some confusion as to Samuel and Abbey. My Grandfather, Chancey Wells Walker Sr. signed his dad's, Richard Pierce, death certificate showing Samuel S. as his father and Abby Bonham as Richards mother. Others reaearching say Abbey was Abbey Boon not Bonham. If I could confirm which is the correct Abbey, I might be able to trace Samuel. Also, Richard's death certificate shows him being born in Tenn. The family lore has it that the Walkers are from Scotland, immigrated to Penn, then with the Boone's family , among others, traveled to the valley of Virginia, stayed awhile, then traveled with the Boones ( Daniel Boones family) to NC, KY, Tenn, then back to NC.

I'm not sure if it's just a tale or true. If I can identify the correct Abbey Walker, it might help.
Thank you for responding for my plea for help from old Pender and New Hanover families. Most of the names I remember from visiting my Grand parents as a kid, are most all still living in that small geographical area, Atkinson, etc. there are Barnes, Moores, Horrells, Blacks, Bonhams? Boon's?, Russells, Brinsons, Parkers and many other famailies in my ancestors somewhere.
