Overview


Changes to this site are now being announced through the Edward B. Walker Updates blog. Using the blog, you can also choose to be updated via email or with a news feed if you wish.

Edward B. Walker is the progenitor of nearly all Walkers who have lived in Claiborne, Hancock, and Union Counties in upper East Tennessee since the founding of those counties. If your Walker family ever lived in any of those counties, chances are that you are related to this Walker family.

If you came to this site from my family file looking for information on someone from the area of Cocke, Sevier, or Jefferson County, Tennessee, you probably are more interested in my maternal lines. This site currently has Walker information only, but I have written some articles on my maternal line in my Cocke County Connections blog.

Even if you do not know of a connection to the Walkers, if any of your ancestors lived in the Mulberry Gap/Little Sycamore/Hoop Creek area or Walker's Ford/Lone Mountain/Bear Creek/Straight Creek area, chances are that someone on your line married into the Walkers.

This site has biographies and sketches of a few of the family members as well as source documents such as family Bibles, pensions, and other reference materials. It is an adjunct to my Family Fileoffsite link to WorldConnect, which contains additional information about all known descendants and many additional sources. Use the links at left to navigate the site.
