I am seeking information on the ancestors of Jane Walker and Joseph Curry. I do not see them mentioned in your genealogy. I believe you have a Jane Walker married to a Read c. 1727 but this would have been an earlier generation.
Felix Walker's account “states, that my grandfather, John Walker, was an emigrant from Ireland about the year 1720, settled in the State of Delaware about or near a small town ealled Appaquinimey, lived and died in that State, was buried in a church called Back Creek Church on Bohemia River.”The Presbyterian congregation at Back Creek Church was probably in Maryland. Felix's account continues:"       One of my father's sisters married a man by the name of Humphreys, father of Colonel Ralph Humphreys, who died at or near Natehez about thirty years past, the father of George Humphreys who lives in that county. One sister married Benjamin Grubb, a respectable farmer of Pennsylvania, but removed to South Carolina and died there. The other sister married Colonel Joseph Curry, settled about five miles below Columbia on the Congaree River." South Carolina records confirm Joseph and Jane's settlement on the Congaree.
Thank you for a reply.
