Comparison

From White, 1902:
ALEXANDER Walker...the nephew of John and Katherine Walker, the emigrants...came to America with them in 1728 [3] with his older brother John (called Jack) and sister Eleanor; first settled in Pennsylvania, and then with his brother John and cousin Alexander (eighth child of John and Katherine) went to Virginia and settled on what was called Walker's Creek, Rockbridge County, then Augusta County; this was in the fall of 1734. [4] Alexander Walker lived on the farm now owned by William Walker; his brother John settled about one mile up the creek, and their cousin Alexander pitched his tent nearer the Jump Mountain, about one-half mile from his cousin Alexander's place, they being the first settlers there. The creek which runs parallel with the valley was called for them, and still bears that name.

Note: Land records for the Walker property on Walkers Creek are somewhat ambiguous. Hildebrandt has interpreted them one way, while Phil Rhoton has made a somewhat different interpretation. Additional Work needed to sort this out.
