  Death: AFT 1767 in Franklin, Pennsylvania
  Burial: Lower Path Valley, Presbyterian Church Grave Yard, Pennsylvania
  Military Service: BET 1777 AND 1778 Private under Capt. Noah Abraham
  Reference Number: 25911
  Note:
 This Robert Walker arrived and settled in Fannet Twp., (Path Valley), Franklin County, in 1767. He came
       from a Scotch-Irish settlement at Forks of the Brandywine in Chester Co. Parents are unkown. There is also
       an Alexander Walker who came from the same locale to Fannet Twp. several years earlier and appear's to be
       Robert's uncle.

       These early Walkers lived in Fannet Twp., the same place where Mary Lowry(?) Thorn went after she
       married Robert Elder. When the children of this Robert Walker moved west to Indiana and Armstrong
       counties during the 1780's - 1790's, they sold their father's land to the Elders. Both this Robert and our Jennet
       Walker Thorn named two of their children Robert and Margaret.

       Two daughters of a Guthrie family married two brothers of this Walker family about 1850-1860 in
       neighboring Armstrong County., PA. The Guthrie girls are descended from the Guthrie's who along with
       Joseph Thorn founded the Poke Run Church. The Walker boys trace back to this Robert.

       From the American Revolutionary Soldiers of Franklin County, PA, compiled by Virginia Shannon Fendrick:

       Deeds show Robert Walker of Fannet Twp., granted 100 acres of land in 1767. "We, Mary Calhoon, late
       Mary Walker, widow of Robert Walker, decd., - James Colhoun her present husband:" also Benjamin;
       Margaret; Alexander; Samuel: David White and Mary his wife; James; Robert; Abraham; all children of
       Robert Walker, decd., sell to John Elder, James Elder, Robert Elder, and Isabella Campbell, issue of Robert
       Elder of Metal Twp. The above sale was acknowledged by Robert Walker's heirs, Oct. and Nov., 1810 from
       Armstrong and Indiana Counties, Penna.
