Facts and Events
WARNING! For many years, researchers have claimed that JohnIV Walker was a DIFFERENT John Walker, i.e. "Meadow Creek John Walker" (b. abt. 1740, d. 1797, Greene County, Tennessee), who married Mary Anderson. This has been apparently dis-proven after y-dna analysis. Please refer to the following website for additional information and analysis:
John Walker IV (c1740-c1817) aka "Indian Killer"
Married: c1754-<1766, to "Miss Long". His parents married in 1734, so we would guess his marriage occurred no earlier than 1754. William, a son of this couple, was about ten years of age at the time of his capture by Indians in 1776, implying that his parents married prior to 1766.
John Walker IV is the son of John Walker III (c1705-c1776) and Ann Houston (c1705-c1765), of the Wigton Walkers line. His father's family (John Walker II ( -1734) and Katherine Rutherford ( -1738) immigrated from Wigton Scotland (modern Wigtown in Wigtonshire, to Newry, Ireland about 1710, and then from Newry to America in 1726. The family settled in near the community know known as Rising Sun, Cecil County Maryland. His mother's parents, Christopher Houston ( ) and Martha ( ), settled near llNew Castle, Delaware]], prior to this time. Nothing further is known of their family history. John III and Ann married about 1734, and moved in succession to Borden's Grant (roughly modern Rockbridge County, VA) about 1738, then to Orange County, NC about 1756, and finally, about 1771, to Castle's Woods in modern Scott County, VA.
