WALKER posted by Marilyn Brown on Saturday, September 21, 1996

Seeking information on Travis Walker who married Elizabeth (Betsey) prior to 1810 in Woodford County, Ky. I have found marriage records on three Travis Walkers (presumed to be related) who were married about the same time. This Travis, with Betsey and two sisters (one named Elizabeth) moved to Harrison County VA. Because there are three Travis Walkers of the same generation, it is believed that they are members of a large family group who settled in Woodford. I would love to make contact with anyone who is researching this line. Thanks!
