This appears to be a record pursuant William Walker (186) who was KBI'd at McCormicks Fort in Cumberland County, PA, on or before 13 May 1757 when his death was reported by newspapers. Mary Stuart is his widow and administrix of his estate. She subsequently remarried to James Stuart. These records indicate that James and Mary came to Augusta from Cumberland County. The dating of the events in the records are consistent with the DOD of William (186).

Note that this can not be William Walker (176) son of Gunstocker John. While William 176 did marry a Mary Stuart, they lived about 20 years later than this. See Record below for the marriage record of William (176) and Mary Stuart below. Apparently after Williams death his wife Mary last name unknown, married James Stuart, probably in Cumberland County PA. The relationship of William Walker (186), died c 13 may 1757 in Cumberland County PA, to other Walkers in Old Augusta is not currently known.
