Re: [WALKER-southern] NELSON A. WALKER Alexander WALKER died in early 1775 in Augusta County, Va. His land was up near the present boundary with Rockingham Co. He was born about 1718, I'm not sure where. He was married once or twice. Left lots of children. His best known descendent is a grandson, James Alexander Walker, who died in 1901. James Alexander was a Brig. Gen., C.S.A., commanded the Stonewall Brigade for a couple of years and a division at Appomatox, later Lt. Gov., Va, and member of Congress for a couple of terms. No one in this group seems related to this particular Walker line.
