Seeking info on a Mr. Walker who married Catharine Doyle abt. 1825 in or near New Haven, Huron County, Ohio

+1 vote
My great-great grandmother, Catharine Doyle came from Ireland abt. 1811 at about age 3-15 with her family -- father was James Doyle, mother Margarette Doyle, a sister Margaret Doyle and a brother Nicholas. The family located in New Haven, Ohio by 1820 census. Several years later she apparently married a Mr. Walker for a time, but can't find marriage record. Apparently they divorced or Mr. Walker died, because Catharine Doyle-Walker then married Wales Thayer in 1833.

Any info on this Mr. Walker would be greatly appreciated, or any info on Catharine Doyle-Walker-Thayer or Wales Thayer

Thanks Mr. Morgan. I have seen a document at "War of 1812 Pension Applications" which mentions Joseph C. Walker and a Catharine Walker -- but there is very limited info included, and it is undated. Any ideas how to get more info.

I found it on ancestry, but this site will not allow to paste in its URL.

Wales is buried in New Haven, Ohio.  Wales and Catherine had 2 sons, Nicholas and William.  I know nothing of William.  Nicholas was invalided out of McClellan's army in 1863.  He married Sarah Jane Steele that year.  They eventually settled in or around Bay City, Michigan.  Catherine remarried after Wales death to Isaac Standish.  I believe she remained in Ohio.
Thanks for your reply. But I had already found those details, and quite a bit more about their lives, after arriving in New Haven, Ohio. What is sadly lacking are the origins of the key figures -- Wales Thayer, Catharine Doyle(?)/Walker/Thayer/Standish, and Mr. Walker. Not a concrete clue about their origins. Wales was apparently born somewhere in Massachusetts about 1804; parents a complete mystery. Catharine was born in Ireland, about 1808, and may have had maiden name of Doyle, I think. When and how she came to America, and her parents, I have only theories. And Mr. Walker is a complete mystery. Catharine and Wales did have at least two sons (Nicholas was my great-grandfather), but I think there were likely an additional sibling or two, judging from census records. Records I have found and my family ties are all on -- as best I have been able to determine.
Any additional clues about the origins of any of the above, prior to New Haven, Ohio??
Thanks again!
