Is the world ready for one more John WALKER. :) John's migration pattern was
Knox Co., KY until 1818, then Clay Co., KY until 1822, then Perry Co., KY
until ca. 1871, then Delta Co., TX.

I believe his siblings to be Christopher WALKER b. 1794, Sarah WALKER b.
1795, James WALKER b. 1799, and Brice/Bryce WALKER b. 1803, all in TN or KY.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone familar with this family.

Regards....Bob Walker
