Most, but not all, Walkers in Chalkley's Chronicles can be traced to the Wigton Walker line as describe by White 1902. The above is a Summary of Male Descendancy of the Wigton Walker line, based on White, 1902. This includes the Walkers Creek and Natural Bridge lineages. Also included is thethe lines of Samuel the Orphan, known to be related to the Line of John III by YDNA, but also known not to be related to the line of Samuel of Natural Bridge. Not currently shown are the lines of, Alexander the Orphan, and the Letterkenney Walkers, all of which share the Walkers Creek YDNA signature with John III and Samuel the Orphan.) Entries marked "X", indicate individuals who are believed to have "died young", died without children, or about whom nothing is known.

WalkerJames 1452=4531764 NOVEMBER, 1764 (A). Man vs. Galloway.--The deposition of James Walker, gent, being first sworn on the Holy Evangelist, saith that some time in the fall of the year 1769, being stationed at Fort Young as Lieutenant of a company in the Frontier Battalion, the defendant, Man, acted under him as sergeant, and one day a certain John Isabell, having drove up a young horse that was neither cut, doctored, or branded to the best of this deponent's belief, had got him penned up in the fort with an intent to get him in a halter, and for this purpose had collected all the soldiers then in the fort to assist him to halter the said horse; that afterwards, when they had got him in the halter, this deponent saw him break away with the halter on his head and swim across the river, which being then raised by a fresh, could not be forded, and that the said Isabell applied to this deponent, as commander of the garrison, to offer a bottle of rum to the defendant and his brother, Thomas, to swim across the river to drive the horse back, and if that would not induce them, to order them as their officer, which this deponent communicated to them in such words as to let them know if they did not do it for the reward aforesaid that he should lay his commands on them, as he was apprehensive the horse might be hung in the woods by the halter, and accordingly the said defendant and his brother swam across the river and drove the said horse back again, where he was again caught and delivered to the said Isabell, who told this deponent that he was a stray which he intended to ride down to Staunton, and if he could find the owner he would purchase the horse of him, if not that, he would ride him back again to Fort Young, then turn him out, and that he did accordingly ride him down in a day or two after but never returned to Fort Young, but on the contrary rode him down the country and sold him, as this deponent thinks, he was informed by the said Isabell himself, and further this deponent saith not.

On account of the war he went to Pennsylvania for safety, and while there Jacob Prickett located on same land and sold to James Morgan. Jacob Pindall deposes, 1810, in Monongalia--brother of Thomas Pindell, who claimed to have bought from orator land on Prickett's Creek in Prickett's settlement. Surveys, patents and copy of preemption warrant. Possibly a Wigton, but seems to early for them to have moved to Ohio via Pricketts Fort area, so this is most likely an independent lineage.

Lain Jones was only child and heir of Orlando Jones, who died testate. Willdated 4th May, 1804. William Walker and Elizabeth are both dead. Defendants are, viz: James, Andrew, Francis, Walker and Sally, his wife; Andrew Laird and Eleanor, his wife (late Walker); Charles Mosly and Jane, his wife, late Walker; Francis, Josephus, Rebecca Walker, and Daniel Couch. Copy of a former bill filed in Albemarle by William Walker and Elizabeth, his wife, shows that on 27th November, 1771, in contemplation of a marriage between Orlando Jones, deceased, and Elizabeth (oratrix), daughter of John Clayton, deceased, a marriage contract was entered into. Conveys 400 acres in Albemarle and certain slaves. In February, 1793, Orlando died without issue by Elizabeth, who married Walker in 1793.

Not the same line as William of Laurel Creek; While both Williams married "ELizabeth", that William did not have a daughter Elizabeth, and this William recorded a deed in 1795, while William of Laurel Creek was deceased by 1790.
WalkerJames 236117891789--August 6th, Wm. Sutherland and Katrina Enswinger; August 13th, John Solomon and Elizabeth Marline; August 14th, William Williams and Lilly Tellor; August 25th, James Robinson and Rebecca Robinson; September 4th, John McConn and Mary Trotter; September 4th, Jas. Walker and Mary Hays; September 22d, Job Harvey and Elizabeth Reed; December 17th, John McCutchen and Agnes Porter; December 30th, Thomas Rowen and Susanna Donahow.Mary Hays is commonly identified as the daughter of ANdrew Hays who died in 1786. Transcript:Willl of Andrew Hays, Augusta County, 1786 identifies an unmarried daughter as Mary. Presumably this is the "Mary Hays" that married James Walker in 1789, three years after Andrews death. Andrew's property was in the Walkers Creek area, and so this James Walker is probably one of the Walkers Creek lines, though it is not clear which one it is. the most likely candidates are James (120) James, (122), or James (127). All of these are commonly identified as having other wives. If this James Walker is one of them, then Mary is either a previous wife who died year, or James remarried her as a second wife after the death of his first wife. Note that WHite 1902:510 has a Mary Hays dau of John Hays, marrying a Joseph Walker. Possible confusion in White? Note also that this is the line that involves marriage with the family of President John Polk, a lineage that seems problematic.
