Image:Augusta County.jpg James Walker is mentioned in the will of John Walker, dated 27 Mar 1797 and proved 3 Oct 1797, as his son.[1] He married his second cousin Anne Walker and though she is not named in her father Alexander's will, dated 5 May 1784 and proved 7 Sep 1784, James is referred to as his son-in-law and was appointed one of his executors along with Anne's brother David.[2] He and James appear to have had a close relationship and often appear with each other in the public record. In the early years of their marriage James and Anne lived near her immediate family on 86 acres along Cedar Creek that James purchased in May 1777.
He purchased another farm on Walkers Creek adjacent to that of his father from Arthur and Mary (Walker) Graham/Grimes, his brother-in-law and sister, on 4 Sep 1787.[3] James and Ann sold the Cedar Creek property to Person:John Walker (202), her first cousin and his second cousin, on 28 Aug 1789.[4] The remainder of their years in Rockbridge were spent on Walkers Creek where they were joined by Anne's brother David who purchased an adjoining farm that once belonged to Person:Alexander Walker (26), James' uncle. He and Anne as well as David and his wife Jane sold their Walkers Creek property on 1 Sep 1795, probably in anticipation of moving to Kentucky.[5]

James and his brother-in-law David both purchased property on Russell's Creek in Green County, Kentucky, on 15 May 1798. [6] This property later fell within the boundaries Adair County, Kentucky, when it was formed from Green County in 1801. James and Ann sold their original farm, purchased in 1798, on 11 Sep 1830, probably in anticipation of moving to Illinois (Adair DB H:9). They and their son William, who was probably acting as their attorney, are described as "of Morgan County, Illinois" in a deed, dated 17 Aug 1831, disposing of their remaining property in Adair County.[7]


James and Anne settled in Morgan County near Yatesville. They did not purchase any property in the area and probably lived with their children who settled there as well. James died 20 August 1835 and was buried at the Yatesville Cemetery. After his death, Anne probably went to live with her son Person:William Walker (178) in nearby McDonough County where she died either in late 1835 or 1836. Neither of the two left estate or probate records.
