William and his brother Abraham came to Henry Co TN soon after the death of their father - about 1820. William and his brother Abraham came [early] to Tennessee, according to The History of Henry County, Tennessee by E. McLeod Johnson, Vol. 1, 1958. The first tobacco was raised in Henry County, Tennessee, by William Walters.

William WALTERS and Elizabeth BALL were married on 10 December 1804 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.12,40 Elizabeth BALL, daughter of John BALL and Mary [BALL], was born in 1787.8 She died on 1 September 1824 at the age of 37 in Henry County, Tennessee.49,50
William WALTERS and Elizabeth BALL had the following children:
|Jane WALTERS8,19 was born on 16 November 1805.50 |
Jane married (1) Richard Vinson Woodson in 1822 in Henry Co TN Richard was b. 27 Dec 1791 and d. 10 Mar 1835. She married (2) Lewis Hyer on 20 Feb 1839.
|Lucy WALTERS8,51 was born on 15 December 1806.50 |
Lucy married in 1825 to Rev. George Washington Moody [1799-1838] He is buried Walters Cemetery. She married (2) on 4 Oct 1840 to Willis Williams. Willis was b. 1798, d. 1844 and is buried Manley Cemetery, Henry Co TN Lucy married a 3rd time, to Eaton Davis on 6 Sep 1855.

|Thomas WALTERS8 was born on 4 April 1808.50 He died on 16 October 1829 at the age of 21.8 |
Married in 1829, Henry County TN to Martha J. Hagen. She died 1844.
[Another place gives her name as Elizabeth Oliver]
Thomas, son of Abraham, married Martha Hagler in 1845 - the two Thomases may have been confused.
I suspect the date of death was actually his marriage date.
This is the only Thomas Walters/Waters found in Tennessee in 1840 in Henry County. This is his data. Thomas Walters, 1m -5, 1m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1m age 30-40 [same age as the two Thomases of Grainger] 1f -5, 1f 5-10, 1f 20-30. He would seem to be the same as a Thomas Waters found in Henry Co in 1830: 1m -5, 1m 20-30, 1f 15-20.
|Martha Jane "Patsy" WALTERS8,52 was born on 1 March 1810.50 She died on 13 February 1880 at the age of 69 in Henry County, Tennessee.53 |
Martha was the wife of Thomas Addison Young. They were married 11 Apr 1827, Henry Co TN. He died 1877.
Martha is buried Bass Cemetery, Henry Co TN.

|Elizabeth WALTERS54 was born on 23 September 1811.50 She died on 8 August 1856 at the age of 44 in Henry County, Tennessee.49 |
Grave markers in Walters Cemetery show that Elizabeth Walters' husband was William Moody, b. 12 Apr 1803 and d. 8 Jan 1876. Their children also buried in this cemetery include: Henry Moody [31 Aug 1834 - 28 Dec 1834], daughter Wilmouth Moody [25 Feb 1839 - 29 Aug 1840], Robert [1 Dec 1850 - 19 Oct 1855] and Joseph [1 Dec 1854 - 19 Oct 1855]

|William WALTERS8,55,56,57,58 was born on 2 January 1813.50 He died in 1885 at the age of 72 in Gregg County, Texas.8 |
William married Elizabeth Arnett in 1833?
Which William? Is the following William son of William & Elizabeth Ball, or is it William, son of Abraham & Judith Thomas [see his notes]. Most of the information from the censuses below seems better to fit William, son of Abraham & Judith. I believe this man's death recorded 1885 in Gregg Co TX as in the family group sheets in the Library in Paris, Henry Co, TN may be an error, and it was his cousin William, son of Abraham & Judith that died in Texas.
In 1840 there were two William Walters living in Henry Co TN. They could be the two first cousins.
One was listed as having 2 males, age 20-30 in the household [this William would have been about age 27 and had several brothers of similar age], and 1 female age 20-30.
The other William Walters was age 30-40 [William son of Abraham would have been about 34], 1 female under 5 and 1 female age 20-30. The section for young males is obscured by a blot.
There was also a William Walters living in Grainger Co TN and one in Washington Co TN, but neither of them fit the families any better than those in Henry Co.
The following I believe is the correct data for William Walters, son of Abraham Walters & Judith Thomas, and not this William:
Upshur Co TX? I did find the following family in the 1850 census in that county, p.208, household 425
Wm Walters, age 38, b. VA [b.1812]
M. Walters, age 36, b. VA [b.1814]

From Robert B. Walters
In my search for today, I found a William Walters, born 1806 in Halifax County, Virginia. He died in 1885 and is buried in the Mosely Cemetery, Gregg County, Texas.
He was married to Marietta Swift, born about 1814 in Virginia. She died in 1865, and is also buried in the Mosely Cemetery, Gregg County, Texas.
The above parties may have had two sons, I.e.:
Phillip T. Walters, born about 1839 in Henry County, Tennessee
Samuel R. Walters, born 1849 in Texas
These last two parties are also buried in the Mosely Cemetery, Gregg County, Texas.
|Spencer WALTERS8,59 was born on 26 January 1814.50 He died about 1846 at the age of 32.8 |
Married 1 Feb 1842 to Tabitha E. Randle.
In another place in the Walters Papers, his wife is given as Mary E. Walters. She's said to be in the Henry Co 1850 Census. Mary Walters, age 26, b. NC. Robt 8, Eliza Jane 7, Jackson 6, and Joel age 4.
|Joel WALTERS8 was born on 16 October 1815.50 He died on 20 September 1836 at the age of 20 in Henry County, Tennessee.49|

Information about the Rushing family came from Early Settler Biographies, Benton Co, TN; submitted by Dallas Greer from the files of Norma Watson to www.rootsweb.com:
The suname of Jemima's mother was indeed Sarah Herrin. She married Abel Rushing 22 Jul 1807.
Abel Rushing was born 1787 in Anson Co NC and died 26 Aug 1835. Sarah Jane Herrin was born 20 Mar 1788, died 29 Nov. 1857.
The Rushings moved to Stewart Co TN from NC. He served in the War of 1812 & crossed the Tennessee River to claim a land grant by December 1820 - this area became part of Benton Co. His relatives Willis & Dennis settled with him along Rushing Creek near the Big Sandy River.
|Sarah Ann "Sally" WALTERS8,61 was born in January 1824.50 She died on 13 November 1878 at the age of 54 in Benton County, Tennessee. |
Sarah married 17 Oct 1839 to Robert T. Rushing.
1850 Benton Co TN: Robert T. Rushing age 39, Sarah age 27. Thomas 16, William 8, Jane 6, Elizabeth 4, Mary 3/12. James Helms, age 22, living with them; probably a farm hand. [Information below indicates Thomas was age 10, not 16, in 1850.]
Information about the Rushing family came from Early Settler Biographies, Benton Co, TN; submitted by Dallas Greer from the files of Norma Watson to www.rootsweb.com:
Robert T. Rushing was a son of Abel Rushing & Sarah Jane Herrin, and a brother to Jemima Rushing that married Sally's brother Obadiah Walters.
Robert T. Rushing born 29 Feb 1812, died 21 Feb 1854, Benton Co TN.
Sarah "Sallie" Walters Rushing died 21 Feb 1854, Benton Co TN.
Children were Thomas J., born 1840; William L. b. 1842; America Jane b. 1844, married James C. Lindsey; Elizabeth b. 1846, Mary B. b. 1850, married William H. Brummit.
William WALTERS and Anna BABB were married about 1825 in Henry County, Tennessee.1 Anna BABB8,49,62,63 was born in 1782 in North Carolina.62 She died on 29 July 1874 at the age of 92 in Henry County, Tennessee.49
Anna was the daughter of John Babb and Media Brown. There is a problem with the date of the marriage seen as 9 Jun 1824 because the cemetery records of Elizabeth Ball Walters state that she died 1 Sept 1824. William could hardly have married another wife before the first had died. Descendants of this line state that they married in 1825 - much more likely.
Records compiled by Dora Walters Latham, daughter of John Henry Walters, son of Henry Babb Walters, son of William Walters gives this information in her research for membership in DAR:
William Walters married Anna Babb in March, 1825, in Henry County TN. Anna Babb was the 3rd child of John Babb and Media Brown. She resided on a farm granted to her father for services in the Revolutionary War. According to the 1850 and 1860 census, Anna Babb Walters was born ca 1782 in North Carolina. She is buried in the Walters Cemetery near Manleyville.
1850 Census, Henry Co TN Henry B. Walters, age 24. Ann, age 61, b. North Carolina lives with his family.
1860 Census, Henry Co TN, District 7, p.381, Household 660
Henry B. Walters household includes Anne, age 73, b. NC.
Anna Babb Walters grave marker says she was 92 years old in 1874. This would indicate a birth year of 1782. The 1850 census indicated she was born in 1789; perhaps her age in 1850 was 67 rather than 61.
William WALTERS and Anna BABB had the following children:
|Henry Babb WALTERS8,19,49,62,63 was born on 23 September 1826 in Henry County, Tennessee.1,50 He died on 7 September 1892 at the age of 65.49 Henry married Emily Louise Alton 18 Jul 1850. He married Elizabeth Bell on 4 Nov 1873.|
