James Walker of KY

Seeking info on my gggg grandfather James Walker, who married Catherine Miller. One of their children (Lucretia Walker, b. 23 Dec 1789 in Wayne Co., KY) was my ggg grandmother, who married Silas Bell 31 Aug 1811 in Wayne Co., KY. Silas and Lucretia were divorced in July 1826 in Wayne Co., KY. In 1834, Lucretia moved to Texas with her parents, James Walker and Catherine Miller. Lucretia was married 4 times; i.e., to Silas Bell, to Elias Gilpin, to a Vandever and to a Brooks. Elias Gilpin obtained a land grant in what is now Fayette Co., TX. After his death, Lucretia sold most of this land and gave the rest to her son, James Carrell Bell, my ggg grandfather. Lucretia died circa 1860 in Fayette Co., TX. Does anybody know where and when James Walker was born, the names of his parents and when/where they were born, the names of any siblings James Walker may have had? Also, for whom was Bell Co., TX and Walker Co., TX named?
