I traced my ancestry back to Samuel Walker, father of Joseph Walker.I have founds lots of books online that support that.Now I want to find his father.
Many have said Richard Walker is his father, some have said NOT.
Supposedly, Richard married Jane Talmage.Many books I have found online and through some contacts have said the Talmage/Tallmarche line is a very old one in England.
Problem is that I show Thomas, Jane's father born 1595.If Samuel Walker is born 1515 - 1517 depending on which time he stated his age correctly, then Jane is too young to be Samuel's mother.
My theory, is that Jane is Samuel's sister-in-law, wife to his brother Richard.Some have said that the Richard born 1611 and the Richard born before May 1592, are the same person.But my records show this Richard had a son, and no one seems to speak of him.
So I say these are two people, and some of the facts told about "Captain Richard" are true for him, and some are true for his son.
At least the dates seem to be more in line.
