Thank you so much.My Benjamin was born in NC in 1808.The MD names have looked interesting for some time, however.I believe that since there was a Terrell Walker in Benjamin's widow's Harris County household in 1880, and he was born in GA in 1818, that my Ben's Walker parents moved to GA between 1808 and 1818.Ben named his children James Valentine, William Elbe, Lucy Ann, Bethany Harrison, Sarah V., Amy Judith, Martha E., Willis W., Benjamin Franklin, and another William H. called Wiliby. (The first son William Elbe died after being married a short time in Franklin Co., GA. and so did James V.)
Do you think that there were two Mary Ann Elizabeth Youngs who married Walkers with V. for a middle initial or that the Oglethorpe Co. marriage list confused James V. and two Josephs listed below him? The date of marriage was appropriate.I have not yet heard from Rovaine Brown about his thoughts on this.It was his query to which I responded.
William E. Walker's widow, Sisily Mize, remarried Caleb Chitwood and their daughter, Amanda, married a Cobb.They were the parents of TY Cobb in Royston, GA.Sisily and William E. Walker had a daughter Mary Francis who married John F. Moss.For some reason Ben's grandchildren used the name Claud and derivitives of it.The Mosses had Claudius and Zeloid in the late 1870's.They were in the Banks portion of Franklin County.
There were several Walkers in Oglethorpe County, GA in the early 1800's.Ben was more closely associated with the next door neighbor of Elijah Walker who married Fanny Hardman there in 1822.I wonder if Ben's mother died in childbirth and Elijah could be his father or an older brother.Elijah and Ben were on the Franklin Co. tax lists, and both moved there.Elijah's neighbor was Martin Dowdy who was a witness to relative's wills and Ben witnessed his codicil.
I really apprecite your monitoring the Walker forum.We need your help.
