White 1902 traces the descendants of John Walker and Jane McKnight of Wigton Scotland. Their son, John Walker (II) moved to Newry Ireland c1710, and then to Old Chester County PA c 1726. Several of the children of his brother Alexander moved with him. About 1734-1738 the several branches of the family moved to Borden's Grant in what is now Rockbridge County, VA.
White worked with a family record, commonly referred to as the "Joel Walker Record", written sometime about 1840, as the core basis for her description of the various branches of the family. Recent YDNA evidence indicates that these lineages conflated two separate and unrelated families both using the surname "Walker". One line settled about 1738 on Walkers Creek in the northwest protion of Bordens Grant. The other line settled near Natural Bridge just south of the grant boundaries. It is not clear which line descended from John Walker of Wigton Scotland.
The confusion embedded in White 1902 predates her own work. That is, by 1840 the two lines had already been merged in the family understanding of their ancestry. The reason for the confusion appears to be related to intermarriages between the two lines that occurred in the late 1700's. Within a generation or two of these marriages, the fact that the two Walker families did not arise from a recent common ancestor was lost, and the marriages were being described as "cousin marriages".
