[NI111007] Samuel Jacob Booker was adoped by Benjamin Sears after his mother d & was taken to IL. enlisted Co. G, 70th IL Volunteer Infantry at Camp Point, IL. He served during the Civil War until Dec 1862, when he became ill & was placed the Field Hosp. at New Haven, KY. He was later moved to Louisville, KY & Mar 1863, he was brought to Quincy, IL. He was discharged from service on April 16, 1863, & went home to Paloma, IL, where he d on Jul 14, 1863 as a result of his war service.

[NI111019] George Haworth m his 2nd cuz, Rachel Haworth (d/o Absolom Haworth & Mary West). He was 1 of the 1st settlers of Danville (Georgetown), Vermilion Co., IL

[NI111023] NATHANIEL WALKER4 He was perhaps b in 1730 in Prince George, dying in Frederick Co., MD in 1766. m Elizabeth ______, perhaps in 1747. He was a farmer. A Nathan Walker is on a Muster Roll of Foot in the MD Forces Commanded by Capt. John Dagworthy at Fort Frederick at the onset of the French & Indian War. The muster covered the 31 day period of 9 Jan thru 8 Feb 1758. He is also listed on a 12 Nov 1758 Roll at Loyal Hanning under Col. Dagworthy, for a muster that extended 92 days, from 9 Aug thru 8 Nov 1758. He is listed as having deserted on 12 Nov. Meyer, MD Muster Rolls 1757-1758, MD Historical Magazine, v. 70, p. 104-9, 1975. The "desertion" was probably not as bad as it seems. 1st, several of the men are listed as deserting on the same date, which was 4 days past the muster period. So, it would seem that several just decided that their tour was over & it was time to go home. The description of the places where some of the men were killed implies that Nathan was at the Battle of Ft. Duquesne. The Jul 1776 census shows an Elisabeth Walker as the head of household in the Wye Hundred of Queen Anne Co., with 1 male & 1 female over 21. Supra, p.150. Obviously, she would be the female, & Renelder was well over 21 by 1776, so it could be them. 1 of his chldn was Renelder.

[NI111024] CHARLES WALKER3, THE CARPENTER It is said that this Charles always styled himself a carpenter in buying or selling land. He was b on 9 May 1698 in Prince George Co., MD. He is identified in his fatherís Will as the eldest son. It is said that he d after 1772 in Cumberland Co., NC. He was 1st m to Mary _____, perhaps in 1720, probably in MD, 2nd to Elizabeth ___. Charles & Mary had 3 chldn. He owned land called "The Virgins Delight", part of which was on the west side of Catoctin Mountain. It is said that Charles & Mary sold part of that land to Nathaniel Walker, their son. Charles & Nathaniel were both residents of Frederick Co., & the land was located there also. Frederick Co. is located in the northwest corner of MD, bounded on the North by PA & on the West by what is now WV. The remainder of this land was sold by Renelder Walker & his mother before they went to NC. At that time it was described as 2 parcels, 1 being "Virgins Delight" & the other being "Resurvey of Virgins Delight". A Charles Walker, Jr. is listed as taxable in Rock Creek Hundred of Prince George's Co. in 1719. Calendar of MD State Papers No. 1 The Black Books, p.22. A Charles Walker was also listed as taxable for the Eastern Branch Hundred in the same Co. for 1733, id., p.42. A George Walker was among the 450 or so inhabitants of Frederick Co. who signed a petition on 5 Mar 1766, requesting Gov. Horatio Sharpe to call an Assembly to issue bills of credit to pay public creditors, "as the scarcity of money is nowhere as fatal in its consequences." Charles & Van Swearingen were also signatories. A Charles Walker was in the Talbot Co. Militia in 1748, under the command of Capt Robert Goldsborough, but it is just as likely that Charles, Jr. was the militiaman. Colonial Militia, 1740, 1748, MD Historical Magazine, v. 6, p. 189, 1911.

[NI111025] The MD Calendar of Wills, Vol.6, supra, p.169. Magruder says it is in volume 20, p.87. The Will makes reference to lands known as "Bacon Hall" & "Cut Short" on Collington Branch. He was a planter. He patented the following acreage in Prince Georgeís Co.. Rich Thicket, 300 acs, on 7 Oct 1732; Bacon Hall Addition, 39 acs, on 13 Oct 1740; & Virginís Delight, 150 acs, on 15 May 1744. Coldham, Settlers of MD, 1731-1750, p.232. In 1694 or 1695, at Calvert Co., MD, m Rebecca Isaac. A bro-in- law was Richard Isaac. In 1698 he (as Cha. Wallker) served as a juror in connection with the resurvey of a tract of land on Collington Branch. Wilcox, Prince Georgeís Co. Land Records, Vol. A, 1696-1702, p.41. In 1707, 1 Charles Walker & his wife were witnesses in Her Majesty vs. Margaret Cane, wherein the Defendant was accused of giving birth secretly to 2 chldn & then killing them by putting them in a tub of ashes. Calendar of MD State Papers No. 1 The Black Books, p.7. At p. 23, the same source lists a Charles Walker as taxable in Collington Hundred of Prince George's Co. for 1719. At p. 42 Rebecca Walker is taxable in the Eastern Branch Hundred in Prince George's Co. for 1733. Leonard says that he apparently took over his fatherís ferry business & was paid 5,000 pounds of tobacco for his 1704 servs, but William Walker took over in 1705. In 1708 William was admonished to get a new boat. At the Nov Court in 1717 1 James Lloyd told the Justices that he would run the ferry until William made up his mind as to whether or not he would keep it. Tavern in the Town, supra. 11 chldn were b to Charles & Rebecca Walker, according to his Will & the records at St. Barnabas Church, Queen Anne Parish, at Leeland. MacKenzie, supra, p.269; Brown, Prince Georgeís Co., MD Indexes of Church Registers 1686-1885, Vol. I, p.345-6.

[NI111026] 1670 a Daniel is listed in Liber 12, folio 497 as "Immigrated 1670. Of Somerset Co.." "Immigrated" meant that he had paid his own way to MD. DANIEL WALKER, SR. He is the progenitor of the Walkers in Amer. b abt. 1640, m before 1662. His birth place is stated to have been England. Early Settlers shows a Daniel Walker being "transported" in 1657, as a servant. Patent Liber 5, folio 514. The book explains that "transported" meant that passage was pd by someone else, & the reference to "servant" meant that the person had contracted to repay the cost of passage by working as a servant. An Alice Walker is listed in 1666 as w/o Daniel, with an indication of "service"; that meant that she had satisfactorily completed her terms of service, & was entitled to the free 50 acs of land the Colony was offering. Patent Liber 10, folio 407. Daniel & Alice came together in 1657. We have to assume that the record would not indicate her entitlement to land until she was in fact qualified. Why a similar entry does not appear for Daniel I cannot say. However, in 1670 a Daniel is listed in Liber 12, folio 497 as "Immigrated 1670. Of Somerset Co." "Immigrated" meant that he had pd his own way to MD, according to Early Settlers, so there is reason to think this is not our Daniel, especially since the same page lists a Benjamin as the s/o Daniel. On the other hand, it could be that several of the listed Walkers were related, & the entries are just not fully explanatory. The 1st official mention of him is probably in 1659, when a Will witnessed by him on 2 May 1659 was probated. The MD Calendar of Wills, Vol.1, supra, p.14. Alice d in MD before 1702 (but see infra). Daniel d after 20 Sep 1702 (the date he signed his Will) & before 12 Jan 1702-03, as his will was probated on that date in Talbot Co., MD. He was a Talbot resident. The MD Calendar of Wills, Vol. 3, p. 36. Magruderís Index, supra, states that this Will is found in V. 3 at p.171. He was a farmer. Daniel Walker was s/o John & Elizabeth Walker, b in Pilkington, England; that in 1677 he was appointed to keep a ferry over the St. Michaels River; that he was Clerk & Registrar of St. Peter's Parish from 1707 to 1724. In 1722, Daniel Walker, School Master, bought 92 acs from Joseph Pond, called "Jamica". The Will of James Bishop, probated in Talbot Co. on 12 Oct 1708, bequeathed personalty to "Dan'll., s/o Daniel Walker, schoolmaster. The MD Calendar of Wills, Vol. 3, supra, p.125. However, since our Daniel d in 1702/3, much of what Alfred wrote cannot be accurate, or at least not applicable to Daniel, Sr. The book to which Alfred referred is History of Talbot Co. MD 1661-1861, by Oswald Tilghman. In Vol. 2, beginning at p. 443, there is a discussion of the early schools & schoolmasters of Talbot. At p.445 is found the following. In 1722, Daniel Walker, schoolmaster, purchased of Joseph Pond 92 acs of land called "Jamaica," at the head of 1 of the branches of 3rd Haven Creek, upon which Daniel Walker then lived. Of this teacher we know something more than of those before mentioned, from records written by his own hand, for he was the clerk & register of Saint Peterís Parish from 1707 to Aug 28 1724. He was b at Pilkington, England, & was the s/o John & Elizabeth Walker. In 1677 he was appointed to keep a ferry over Saint Michaelís River, at the point where the bridge now stands, & in the levy record of the Co. it is quaintly stated: "To Daniel Walker, in consideration of his poverty, many chldn, loss, ferriage over river with a canowe, at least 2,500 Lbs [of tobacco]." He has not left the number of his chldn in doubt, for he has faithfully recorded in the parish registry their several names, the yr, dy of the mo, dy of the wk, & hr of the day, when each was b. I find it difficult to reconcile the known dates of Sr's death with several of Tilghmanís statements, & I believe it was Jr who is being described as the schoolmaster, clerk & registrar, with Sr being the ferryman. The reference to "where the bridge now stands" is made again at p.513 & could furnish a good reference point. More significantly, the names of the listed chldn might aid us here. The sources of Srís parentsí names or his place of b are not given. I find no ĎPilkingtoní on modern British maps. Another source states that he came into the Province in 1657 & that Alice completed her service in 1666. He kept the ferry until 1697, when he applied for a license to keep an Ordinary near the ferry landing. This source also says he d in 1702. Leonard, Tavern in the Town, p.247. Leonard says: No 1 who has researched the land on the west side of & adjoining the site of the Miles River Ferry can overlook the Walkers. Old Daniel acquired "Danielís Rest, 50 acs, 1676; "Danielís Addition," 100 acs, 1687; & "Walkerís Tooth," 147 acs, 1694. Charles (of Daniel) patented "Walkerís Corner," 18 acs in 1705, adjoining "Danielís Rest." He & William, his bro, inherited "Millington" & patented "Partnership," 100 acs in Miles River Neck, 1708. "Walkerís Tooth", in Talbot Co., was surveyed for him on 19 Jul 1694. Richardson, Side-Lights on MD History, p. 350. The earliest entry I find for him is where he was the witness on a deed dated 16 Jul 1667. Leonard, Talbot Co. MD Land Records Vol.II, p.9. On 12 June 1668 he & his wife conveyed 200 acres "in Chester River, north side Winchester Creek" to Nathaniel Evitts. Leonard, supra, p.11. On 15 Oct 1677 he & his wife, Alice, conveyed to John Lewis 200 acs on the south side of the Chester River, called "Cheshire." Leonard, Talbot Co. MD Land Records, Vol. III, p.5. In both deeds he was referred to as "Planter." On 14 Jun 1668, Alice Walker gave a power of atty to Thomas Bowker to acknowledge her consent to the sale of land on the south side of Chester River. Leonard, Talbot Co. MD Land Records Vol.II, p.12. In 1687 he bought land on the Ashby Branch of Miles River. Leonard, Talbot Co. MD Land Records Vol.V, p.91. On 21 Jun 1966 Alfred wrote another letter, repeating some of the above & telling Andy that he had found 1 Ronolde Walker marrying in 1559, in the ", Rotherham section of Yorkshire,", & that he believed this to be the original of our Renelder. He was the residuary legatee of the estate of Henry Parker, a Talbot resident who d 1686/7. Parker must have been a relative; he also devised land on the Wye River to William & Charles, which would indicate they were already of majority, but it might also provide a clue to Aliceís parentage. It is possible that Parker was her father, devising land to his grandchldn, or he could be an uncle to them. The MD Calendar of Wills, Vol.2, supra, p.16. According to Comsoft Roots & the Will, Daniel & Alice had 7 chldn.

[NI111170] George Haworth was a linen weaver & farmer. He came from Liverpool, England 1699 on the "Brittania" when he was about 18 with William Penn & a large number of Quakers seeking religious freedom. 14 wks were required to make the trip. The ship was so overcrowded with passengers that the supply of food & water was entirely inadequate. The heat was intense, which added to the suffering. 56 of the passengers d at sea, 20 more after they reached the shore. Among the dead were George Haworth's sister, her hus. & their new-born baby. George was very ill, but survived. Upon landing America, he went to his sister, Mary, Harbills, MD, to recover.

Young John is said to have run away from his foster-family & went to live with the Indians. He was fluent enough to serve as William Penn's interpreter. About 1690, John m Mary ?, possibly an Indian. They built several cabins on their land & gave shelter to poorer members of the family when they needed it. the records of the Buckingham Monthly Meeting (Quakers), John is memorialized as follows: "...in his youth somewhat airy...a man of remarkable self-denial & endured with much mildness... with loving & kind deportment...".

He returned to London to bring Sarah to America, but she was afraid to cross the ocean & refused to come. Quakers were no longer persecuted as badly as they had been, so he stayed.
