To my knowledge, my husband's David WALKER was only married once. The censuses seem to bear this out -- David and Satira were still together in 1880. I haven't found them after that.

My husband's spinster aunt kept meticulous notes about her family. It is thanks to her that I have many full names and birth/marriage/death dates, often with locations. I've reviewed those notes tonight to confirm that David WALKER's middle name was Payton. At least, that's how the aunt spelled it. My mother-in-law, her sister, crossed through Payton and wrote Peyton, presumably because their brother was a David Peyton. My mother-in-law also crossed through Jonna's name and wrote Joann. This conforms with the 1870 and 1880 censuses where she was enumerated as Joanna. Lastly, my husband's aunt noted that Fannie went by "Sis." In 1870, she was Cissily. In 1880, she was Fannie.

I also know that Liza Ann married William F. DURHAM. William M. married Malipa (Malissa? - hard to read census), and they had a son Henry. In 1900, there is a William in nearby Granville Co. He's obviously remarried (to Lucy) and in some ways, he's a match -- there's a son Henry who's the right age and a sister Frances C. However, William's birth date is off, and Frances' is way off, so I'm not sure. I haven't traced the rest of the family after 1880.To my knowledge, my husband's David WALKER was only married once.
