HISTORY AND FAMILY LORE OF OUR WALKER FAMILY

Our goal in creating this website is to pass on to our children and grandchildren a legacy of our family history that might well have been lost. I wish to acknowledge and give thanks to all the people who have shared their Walker and related families information so it could be placed here to help other researchers. A special thanks to Francis Duck who worked tirelessly to help unravel some of the discrepancies and locate sources in Canada. This information is gathered from many sources. We do not pretend to know all the history of our family and we are well aware that there could be errors or omissions. As with any genealogical research there may be some debate on various information. (If your information is at odds with another researcher's, I will work with both researchers to check sources and come to a consensus as to which will be put on the site). The transcriptions of conversations, from books and maps that are listed on this site are copies from the original works by the authors and should be viewed as such. All information concerning deceased individual(s) names are public record and as such will be posted. Any individual(s), still living, will not have their addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses posted unless they have given their consent. It has always been our goal to provide all this information freely to any of the family members who are interested. Unfortunately, I have been informed that portions of the information here are being posted, out of context, on "for profit" sites and being attributed to me and this website as the source. Therefore, any reproduction of the information on this website for profit, or other then private use only, is prohibited. If you have any corrections or additions to any of these families please email me directly at the address shown on the bottom of each page. NOTE: I have received quite a few emails from people asking for additional information about our family. However, when I try to respond to their email it is blocked from getting return mail. Make sure the email address you send your request from can be replied to. Thank you.

10. William Walker b.1700 Ireland d.1769 Orange Co., NC m.abt.1734 Ireland, (unknown).
NOTE: Alamance County, NC was originally part of Orange County, NC, the county immediately to the east. Alamance County was officially proclaimed a county in April of 1849. The boundary to the north finds Caswell County, south is Chatham County, and west is Guilford County. There is little information on William Walker. He owned property on Hogans Creek. Hogans Creek is in Rockingham County, NC, and flows in a northeasterly direction through that county and Caswell County until it empties into the Dan River. That area is on the far western edge of Orange County as it existed in 1769. Walker also named, as his executor, John Robertson, whose name matches that of a man known to have lived on Country Line Creek since 1761. What this means is that Walker lived in an area that today is the southeastern corner of Rockingham County.
