WALKER FAMILY - WESTERN NAVARRO CO. TEXAS
WILLIAM WALKER b. Ireland   1785-1839
m. Elizabeth 1797-1860

Of Interest:   Two families associated with the Walker Family are listed in
Richmond Co Georgia records.
Hugh Fullerton married Rebecca Dove 1799
William Clark Fullerton married Tilmon Dickson 1799
William Wallace sold two "half-lots" in Augusta 1794.

James Walker was born 1817 in Ireland.   John and Nancy were born in South
Carolina.  Elizabeth's birthplace is not listed, but William was born in
1825 in Marion Co in Western Georgia.  The Creek Indian Lands had opened
c1815 and made available lands in Western Georgia for settlement.  Some
members of the Dawson family settled there in that time period.

One of the Wallace families who had lived in Brazos County moved to the
Liberty, Texas area near where Dread Dawson had settled when he first came
to Mexican Texas c1825.   It would seem that the Wallaces, Dawsons, and,
perhaps, the Walkers all came together possibly with others.
