WALKER; DOWDEN; TUCKER; HELSLEY
I am trying to discover more information about my Walker family heritage because so very little is known.  This Walker family spent a great deal of time moving from place ot tplace, therefore it may be hard to keep up.  Beginning with Garner Mack Conco Waker (1829-1906) and his first wife Jane Dowden (--1872) were born in TN.  Nothing else is known about her.  Apparently the family moved back and forth between Jefferson County IL and White County TN as their children's birthplaces seem to indicate.  Their children were Amanda, George, W. S. "Doc", Robert, Freeman, Mary, Charles and Susan.  By 1879 the family settled to stay in Van Buren Township, Wright County MO.  Robert Lewis Walker married Florence Tucker, possibly born in Jefferson County IL.  Nothing is known about this Tucker line.  I have information about Robert's life in Wright County, but the Walker and Tucker families in TN and IL are lost to this line of the family.  Can you help me?

Thompson Jr. (July 1830 TN) may have died in Ozark County in 1902.  Samuel Jr. married Margaret R. (Sept. 1841 MO).  Two sons of Samuel and Margaret Thompson were Elisha (Feb. 1863) and Elijah W.
