Document:Will of Samuel Walker, Caswell County, NC, 1797
Notebook:Extracts of Land Records Walker, Orange County, NC


This Samuel Walker settled on Hogan's Creek in what was then Orange County, NC, probably during the 1750's, and certainly by 1766 when his daughter Elizabeth married Noah Cobb. [1]

Descendant YDNA tests show that he matches closely with John Walker III of the Walkers Creek Branch of the Wigton Walker line. Since John III settled in this same area, the presumption is that they are closely related. Samuel and John also match closely with descendants of the Path Valley Walkers, who settled in Cumberland and Dauphin Counties in PA, by 1734. Some of these Path Valley Walkers also made their way to the Carolina Cradle, probably at the time of the French and Indian War. How all of these Walkers relate to each other is not yet known.

  1. From mary Ann: Henry and Jemima [Cobb] left CT around 1742. In 1755 they appeared on the tax rolls of Orange County, NC (Now Caswell Co. NC). Their son Noah married Samuel Walker's daughter, Elizabeth on 4 Dec 1766. We have the marriage date from a book used to write the Cobb family records. (The record was found in Bible Records of Rockingham County, North Carolina (Madison NC: The Society,1985, Volume 2; page 31,32. They make a mistake while transcribing, recording Walker as Waeher and suggesting it was the name Ware - "Elizabeth Waeher was born the 3 day of May 1749 ("Waeher" could be pronounced "Ware")". So we now know that Samuel was there by 1766.
