James is the son of John Jack Gunstalker Walker (1718-1797) and Margaret Culton (1898-?) . (The DOB for Margaret is inconsistent with her spouse's DOB. Other records have her born in about 1720 in Rockbridge County, VA and list her name as Mary Margret (Culton). The obviously incorrect dates were in the original article - Clearly need correction.)


Family history

Mary Ann Walker married her second cousin James Walker.

James Walker's headstone

Tombstone is very worn and reads died "August 20th 1835" and "aged 84 years". (That is inconsistent with his stated birth year.)
