Where does the "Walker" surname commonly used in some lines come from? The Kentucky birth records show a "Nancy E. Atkinson" February 13, 1855 in Wayne, Kentucky, born to a Peter Atkinson and Emeline Walker, but Sarah Emeline Atkinson's death certificate in Missouri shows her father as "James Lee." Was she a widow when she married Peter? Did her mother remarry a Lee/Walker, leading to the confusion?
