Edward Franklin Walker, called Edd, was a son of Edward and Sarah (Crumley) Walker, born 28 February 1852 probably at his parents' home at Mulberry. He first married Mary Jane Lewis about 1871 probably in Hancock County. Mary was a cousin, the daughter John and Anna (Walker) Lewis; Anna was a daughter of Ned's oldest brother Joseph. Mary was born 23 September 1830 in the Little Sycamore area.

Edd and Mary had at least seven children and eventually settled in the Goin area. Mary died 21 October 1921 in Claiborne County and is probably buried in an unmarked grave in the Russell Cemetery in Goin. Edd then married Jennie Snyder, a widow, in 1924; Jennie was the daughter of Frank and Jennie (Mink) Snyder and the widow of James Burley McBee and others. Edd died sometime thereafter and may be buried with his first wife. Jennie, born 22 September 1890, died at 94 on 27 March 1985 at Hillcrest Nursing Home in Knoxville and is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Knox County, Tennessee. Without a doubt, she was the last spouse of any of Ned's children to die, although she was not married to Edd for long.
