Seeking information on Obadiah Walker who lived in Switzerland Co., Indiana in 1820.Possibly the son of Edward Walker.
Information has been found in "Switzerland County, Indiana Cemetery Inscriptions 1817 - 1985,(Copyright 1986 by Wanda L. Morford at Cincinnati, Ohio; Library of Congress Catalog), Page 8, the following entry for the Allensville Cemetery in Cotton Twp., Switzerland Co., Indiana:
Walker, --ward, d. Aug. 16, 1823 aged 56 y - top left edge broken off Walker, Susannah, wife of Edward, d. Feb. 14, 1835 aged 66 y
Obadiah died in 1822, reported of yellow-fever, while delivering goods to New Orleans.
He was married to Ann Buell, 28 Oct 1820 in Switzerland Co.In March of 1823 his son was born, also Obadiah.
Ann Buell was b. 17 Jan 1799 in Benton, Yates county, New York, the daughter of Samuel Buell and Jerusha Griswold.
Have information that the son was born in Rising Sun, and other information that it was in Cotton Twp., Switzerland Co.I have learned that Rising Sun is in Ohio Co., Indiana so am posting this in both counties.
Would appreciate any information on Walker's living in Switzerland County in the early 1800's.
