I wish I could help you, but I can't. The best I can say is that most likely there is a connection within the Walke line. The Walkes were certainly wanderers. It seemed that my Mr. Walke deserted his children after his wife died. I also don't think that he has issue by his second wife. However, his brothers and other relatives probably did have descendants. I have been doing research on earlier generations. Many of the other lines marrying into Walke lines originated in the Yorkshire area of England. The name "Walke" means fuller of sheep in the Yorkshire dialect. Then, there are also lines that originated in London. The London connection, I think, came in because of occupations and trade. There is a line from Adam Throughgood, in Virginia, which is very interesting because he brought Augustine Warner to America. Warner was one of Geo. Washington's ancestors. You might want to recheck info. from the Chillicothe, Ross Co., Ohio area to see if any names relate to your line. Good Luck
