Each daughter had a son named WILLIAM who inherited the sum of ten dollars from their Grandfather William Walker ;William Rector, William Hartman, William Deakins, William Hunt but no William Jones; however, I do not think that Nancy Walker Carson Jones had a son William to live past 1840. It is now time to give each daughter her own separate page since much information has been found and many cousins found as well


ANNA WALKER, born December 15, 1803 and died August 14, 1858 was described as being small with brown hair, blue eyes and very Irish. She married JAMES Y. DEAKINS, August 21, 1825 in Washington Co., TN

James Y. Deakins' will was dated March 1872. In his will he mentions the new family Bible given to Grandson George K. Brown. Granddaughter Achsah Brown side saddle formerly belonging to deceased Grandmother Deakins. Granddaughter Clarissa Brown and Granddaughter Margaret Brown, all children of deceased mother Suzanne Brown. Henry and RMK Deakins to remain at domicile as well as grandchildren. John and RMK to be Henry's guardians. 250 acres of land is still owned by the DEAKINS descendants

James and Anna are buried in the Old Hunt Cemetery Sulphur Springs, Jonesborough, TN. along with Thursa Nelson Deakins, second wife of James Y. Deakins. I could use help on finding Thursa/Thersa Nelson Deakins parents ; there are several Nelsons buried nearby Thursa in the Old Hunt Cemetery
