A merge has been proposed between https:www.wikitree.com/wiki/Walker-30801 and https:www.wikitree.com/wiki/Walker-32638

The source for this Walker family is "The Descendants of John Walker of Wigton, Scotland" by Emma Siggins White, 1902 at http://archive.org/stream/genealogyofdesce00inwhit/genealogyofdesce00inwhit_djvu.txt

The difficulty is that I do not find that Hugh Walker, husband of Mary Kelso, had a daughter Jane.  Walker-32638 is linked to a daughter Jane Walker, wife of Alexander McPheeters III. 

In White's book, the discussion of Alexander McPheeters and his wife Jane Campbell begins pages 4 and 5.  The discussion of Rachel Moore and her husband William McPheeters begins p. 70.  I can't find a Jane Walker married to a McPheeters as early as 1779 in Rockbridge County, VA My hunch is that somehow Jane Campbell got confused with a supposed Jane Walker.

      Rather than using other genealogy sites for information,  this is https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/009029527   is an accurate and much respected source and your Walkers Kelsos and McPheeters are well documented with wills, land records, etc
      Thank you, Eddie.  I should have remembered it was in Chalkley.  I have not used Hathitrust; is it a free site?

      Yes Hathitrust free to read. Chalkley also available online elsewheresmiley
