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.



1738-1759

Records for an adult Alexander Walker in the area prior to about 1778, could be associated withAlexander 42, ALexander 26, Alexander 29, and Alexander 28. Alexander's 42 and 29 definitively do not appear until we see his will recorded in 1770. Most of the following records are probably for Alexander 26 and 29 of the Wigton Walker line, except as otherwise noted.

Walker Alexander 2 269 1750 Page 145--Wm. Patton, aged 64, deposes, in Rockbridge, 7th November,1806, he has lived in Rockbridge 56 years since last May. After the Revolution there was a rapid increase of immigration from the North. James Wardlaw and deponent's father were intimate. James had a son Hugh and a son Robert. There were Indian troubles for about 10 years. Fifty years ago there was a fort at McClung; the last incursion was 43 years ago, when 16 or 17 people were killed. Deponent helped bury them and they were attacked at the burial. These were very early settlers, viz: James, Alexr. Saml. Walker, James Moore, Saml. Coalter, Jno. Wallace, Archd. Rhea, James Rutherford, James Buchanan, Andrew and Charles Hays. Deponent was born September, 1742. McDowell was killed Christmas or New Year's, after his birth. Note that the Walkers mentioned as the very earliest settlers included only James, Alexander, and Samuel Walker. Those are probably James (126), Alexander (26), and Samuel the Orphan; does not mention Gunstocker John, John III, or ALexander 28 or Samuel of natural Bridge.

Walker Alexander 3 3021751 Page 146.--28th November, 1751. James Patton to John and Alexander Walker, 800 acres by patent as above. Broad Creek. Corner James Carr. Property is in the natural Bridge area. Both John and Alexander mentioned here are too old to be children of Samuel of Natural Bridge. This could be Gunstocker John and his brother Alexander (26), but it might also be John III and his brother Alexander (28).
Walker Alexander 3 3041752 Page 248.--9th May, 1752. Esther Campbell to Alexander Walker, farmer, 287 acres on a branch of Little's Creek; corner John Campbell. Teste: Robert Patrick, James Hamilton. ALexander (42) owned land on Littles Creek. Little's Creek was probably near the Augusta Stone Meeting House, but the placename does not survive in the GNIS system.

Alexander Walker, planter, to Alexander Walker, wheelwright, 7-1/2 acres on Hays Creek; James Walker's line; William Wilson.This is presumably ALexander (26) (Sawney Alexander) the Wheelwright, and Alexander (28) the planter. This shows both owned property on Hays Creek.

Walker Alexander 2 444 1756 Page 178. --1756: Processioned by Andrew hays and Jacob Anderson, viz: For Capt. Joseph Culton, for John Stuart, for Robert Stuart, for Alex. McCroskey, for Alex. Miller, for James Moor, for James Robson, for Wm.Reach, for Robert Roech, for James Ritherfoard, for Jno. Bounton, for Wm. for Robert Culton, for Wm. Porter, for John McCroskey, for Wm. Buchanan, for Charles Hays, for Alex. Walker, Jr., for Alex. Walker, Sr., for James Walker, for John Walker, for John Wallis, for Andrew Hays, for Jacob Anderson.First use of "Jr." and "Sr." to distinguish between two different Alexander Walkers. Appropriately aged "Alexander Walkers", believed to have been present in Old Augusta between 1738 and c1770 include: Alexander (26), (28) and (42). Alexander 26 and 28 are cousins in the Walkers Creek Line, while Alexander (42) is not known to be related to them. The settlers listed in this processioning settled in the Walkers Creek and Hays Creek watershed on Borden's Grant. Alexander (42) settled near Augusta Stone Meeting House near the modern Rockingham County line, on Beverley's Manor. This suggests that the two Alexander Walkers listed here are of the Walkers Creek Line of Walkers and presumably ALexander 26 and 28

Walker Alexander 2 464 1760 Page 287.--1760: Processioned by Reagh and Huston: For James Walker, for James Robison, for James Moore, for Charles Hays, for Andrew Hays, for Samuel Dunlap, for Wm. Porter, for Robert Ealson, for James Anderson, for Jacob Anderson, for Wm. Young, for Alex. Walker, for Alex. Walker, Sr., for Robert Hurt, for John Edmiston, for James Buchanan, for William and Robert Buchanan, for Samuel Hayes, for John Robertson, for Mathew Robertson, for Widow Bell, for James Coulter, for John Buntin, for Wm. Buchanan, for Andrew Buchanan, for Alex. Miller, for John Wallace, for Samuel Buchanan, for Wm. Reaoh, for Joseph Culton, for John Walker, for Wm. Porter, for Robert Catton (Cotton), for John Hurt (Hart). property owners in this list are in the general Walkers Creek area, indicating that Alex Walker and Alexander Walker Sr, are Wigton; It is likely that ALexander (26) (aka Sawney) and ALexander (28) are being referenced, as they would have been the only adult Alexander Walkers in the area at this time. On the otherhand, "Jr." might refer to Alexander (42) of Stone Meetinghouse. He was certainly in the area by about 1768, and might have been here earlier, requiring the "jr." epithet to distinguish him from the Alexander who settled in the area in the 1740's. If so, Alexander Sr probably refers to Sawney Alexander Walker (26), the Wheelwright. Indeed, clear records for Alexander (28) are difficult to find.
Walker Alexander 3 92 1765 Page 426.--27th April, 1765. William Robertson's will--To wife and children. Executors, wife Isabella and son John. Teste: Alex. Walker, James Robson, James Moore. Proved, 16th October, 1765, by the witnesses. Executors (Isabella her mark) qualify, with Alex. Walker, Jno. Buchanan. Robertson lived in the Walkers Creek area so this is probably Walkers Creek line, Alexander (26) Sawney Akexander the Wheelwright
Walker Alexander 3 95 1765 Page 459.--9th November, 1765. Wm. Robertson's estate appraised, by Jno. Moore, Jas. Walker, Alex. Walker. Robertson and Moore lived in the Walkers Creek area so this is probably Walkers Creek line, Alexander (26)

Walker Alexander 2 403 1767 1767 Augusta County Fee book. page 120, Alex. Walker, Borden's Land; Alex. Walker, wheelwright, Borden's Land; Byname of "Wheelwright" indicates "Sawney" Alexander (26) Walkers Creek Line of Walkers. This is the first time this byname is encountered, indicating that by this date (1767) there are other adult Alexander's Walkers who could be confused with each other. This may indicates that ALexander (42) has newly arrived in the area, and is not numberered among the Wigton Walkers.
Walker Alexander 1 140 1767 NOVEMBER 17, 1767. 1) (337) Hemp certificates: John Dean, Christr. Vinyard, James Hogshead, John Trotter, Alexr. Walker, Saml. Davis, Andrew Russell, Saml. Gibson, John Davison.
2) (338) Hugh Donaho appointed surveyor of highway from Thos. Connelly's house to James Beard's ford, vice Alexr. Walker.
Beards Ford was located on the North River, north of Staunton. This indicates that this refers to Alexander Walker (42) of Stone Meeting House, rather than a Wigton Walker line.

Will is proved, by William Buchanan (another witness, James Buchanan, being dead). The other witness, Archibald Buchanan, is ordered summoned. Administration granted Alex. Walker.

Walker Alexander 1 161 1770 AUGUST 21, 1770. (116) His widow Martha and his father, Alexander, qualify administrators of Alexander Walker, Jr.
Walker Alexander 3 114 1770 Page 318.--21st August, 1770. Martha and Alexander Walker's bond (with Thos. Connly, John and Robert Campbell) as administrators of Alexander Walker, Jr. Could be Alexander (27) son of Alexander (28), but Alex. (27)'s wife was 1) Mary Magdalene, and 2) Margaret, not Martha. So this is probably Alexander (29) who married Martha Grimes. Byname of "Alexander Jr." also suggests Alexander (29). While other Walkers in the area had sons named Alexander, who might have been described as "Jr", they were not adults at this time.
Walker Alexander 3 118 1770 Page 404.--10th October, 1770.

Isabella and Barbara Walker, infants, by Hugh Donaghe, their guardian, vs. Elizabeth and Robert Walker, Arthur Connolly and John Campbell.-- Alex. Walker, father of oratrixes, and husband of Elizabeth, and father (?) of Robert, died, 1774, with will. Bill for accounting. Elizabeth Walker's answer, sworn to 10th December, 1790. Spa. in chancery, 2d June, 1787. This suit contains settlement of the estate, with all the heirs, giving names.Person:Alexander Walker (42)
Walker Alexander2 65 1799Alexander Walker and Penelope, his wife, vs. Jennings Beckwith--O. S. 16; N. S. 6--Bill filed 9th June, 1799. In 1764 Sir Marmaduke Beckwith, of Richmond County, grandfather of Penelope, gave her by deed in 1764, which was proved in Richmond County, and her sister, Elizabeth Beckwith, two negroes. During minority of Penelope and Elizabeth, their father, Sir Jonathan Beckwith, took the negroes as guardian. Elizabeth married Thomas Jones and died in 1777. Jennings Beckwith was brother of Penelope. Sir Jonathan died in December, 1796. Alexander and Penelope were married in 1797Person:Alexander Walker (32)
Walker Alexander22921790 1790--March 22, Alexander Walker and Magdalene Hamer; surety, Joshua Parry (next friend). White 1902:363 gives a marriage of Alexander Walker (27) to Mary Magdalene Harmon. This is presumably the same couple. It is likely that the surname White gives her (Harmon) is in error. Note that Alexanders' father was married to Jane Hammer.
Walker Alexander23501798 1798, list of marriages by Wm. Wilson, March 22d, Alex. Walker and Magdaline Harner; This looks to be the second marriage of Alexander (27). White 1902:363 identifies his second wife as Margaret Combs. Perhaps a confusion has occurred fusing the last name of the first wife with the first name of the second wife. White gives Mary Magdalene a total of 14 children, some born before 1798, and some after. Perhaps they represent a mixture of children by both wives.
