I am researching my Walker line and although I have hit a significant brick wall.My Walker line begins, (and thus far ends), at Mary Walker b. 09-30-1841 Perry Co., KY who married Samuel Howard in Breathitt Co, abt.1858.She was my gggrandmother.I have a photo of her.It is rumored that she may have been part Cherokee and she sure looks it.Mary died 09-26-1913 after being badly burned when her dress caught on fire while visiting relatives in Magoffin Co., KY. Originally my sources had her parents as Eollic Walker and Polly Grigsby, for whom I never found any match.Recently through a book published by the Magoffin Historical Society I found another possibility.That book listed Mary's parents as Thomas Alexander Walker, b. 1818 Knox Co. KY, aka Alec or Alex Walker (perhaps that is how the spelling "Eollic" occurred), and Sarah "Polly" Allen,they were married, 03-28-1837 in Perry Co., KY.This book has:
