Is That Really Edward's Signature?

It is.

Only two examples of his signature are known. The one used on all pages is from the Revolutionary War pension of Andrew McClary (W.7417). McClary was a neighbor who lived further up the Mulberry Road toward Virginia, but his daughter, Esther, married Thomas J. Coleman and lived next door to Edward Walker, Jr., and probably Edward, Sr. On 25 April 1833, he signed a deposition in that pension testifying for McClary's character.

The other known example of his signature was on his own pension on the same day. Curiously, he signed McClary's with a middle initial but did not sign his own that way:

His middle name is unknown at this time.
