If you are even remotely connected to Edward B. Walker, please contact me; I am interested in all branches of the family and especially in the central collection of copies of all key family stories, documents, and photographs.

If you don't know of any connection, still feel free to contact me about anything and everything, but unless your lines connect ultimately in certain counties in upper East Tennessee (Claiborne/Hancock/Union or Cocke/Sevier/Jefferson) or you connect to anyone in my Family Fileoffsite link to WorldConnect, I probably do not have much information to help you.

For information on a number of Walker families in the broader area of upper East Tennessee and southwestern Virginia, visit the Walker ShortList Portal.

About Me

I have been researching this Walker branch as a hobby since the late 1980s, albeit not continuously. For the record, I am descended from Edward B. Walker through his son Edward Jr., his son Jacob Shuff Walker, his son Andrew Calvin Walker, his son Paris Clyde Walker Sr., and his son Paris Clyde Walker, my late father.

Despite the intense focus of research on the Claiborne County area, my side of the family left there about 1890, before the birth of my grandfather, when Andrew got his medical degree shortly after his own father died. I myself was born and raised in Chattanooga and knew nothing at all about the area, although I have visited several times at this point. I actually come from a line of Walkers who never knew their own grandfathers, and practically everything I know has been through research, not from immediate family.
