Query: Looking for any info on William WALKER who was married to Rebecca HINTON around 185o. Their only child, Lucian Walker, was born in 1852 in Pine Glen.

According to the Commorative Biographical record William, of English descent, "was killed while a soldier in the Federal army". There were about 90 William Walkers from Pa. in Civil War and all dead ends so far. Also interested in any family info on my grandmother's family - William F PETERS - also born around 1852 and living in Milesburg at 1890 census.

His mother Effie SNYDER was supposedly from Centre Hall, Centre County. Neither Henry BURNELL nor Effie SNYDER appear in either 1880 or 1900 census! I am pursuing a clue that possibly my grandfather's middle name has some connection. He was Roy Wheeler Burnell. Does anyone see a SNYDER married to a WHEELER in mid-1800s?

PA Nancy's second husband was Joseph KELSO of Huntingdon Co. and Blair Co. PA. They had two children Rebecca who married Austin SWISHER and a son James Knox Polk KELSO who died while in the civil war. Nancy and her son are buried in Spitlers Cemetery, Warriors Mark, Huntingdon Co. PA. They died on March 24 and 25 1864 of small pox. Son James was home of furlow when he died. Joseph, Rebecca and her husband, Austin are buried in Julian, PA Centre Co. Also Nancy and her daughter Rebecca used to attend Walker family reunions possibly in Tyrone, PA. Please if any of this sounds familiar to you let me know. Would really like to know something of Nancy before she married Joseph. Where she was born who her parents were and first husband. And anything on Caroline and Elizabeth that anyone might have. Thank you, Paula

I do not live in Pennsylvania, so any local sources are beyond my access. Reviewing the web site, it seems clear that there may be an obituary, probate record, death record, or other such record available. I also saw a book called "John S.
