Mr Pound, with regard to, the Deed O you quote makes little sense, because it cites Elizabeth Walker as "widow of the deceased," and the widow of David Walker was surely Sarah Slayden Walker, not an Elizabeth:

"Be it remembered that we, James Thomas, Mary Pound, James Walker, Archoibald Walker and Willowby Slayton, the heirs and representatives of the Estate of David Walker of Columbia County, together with Elizabeth Walker, widow of the deceased ...." [you wrote] Deed allows Elizabeth Walker free use of the house and 300 acres for her natural life (source: Columbia County, Georgia Deed Book O, page 206) Elizabeth Walker Lowe married her cousin Willoughby Slayden, mentioned as an heir, and she was a daughter, not widow of David Walker. Something is not right there, but I do not have access to those from Lexington KY. Most of those I have at my profiles I have examined at the Georgia Archives.

Who is the deceased? If David Walker (Sr.), this implies that he later married an Elizabeth. I do not believe it was legal to appoint a widow as an administrator unless a will is left, and this is an intestate admin. See (requires Ancestry access). If this is David Walker (Sr)'s daughter, she would have been widow Elizabeth Lowe or spouse Elizabeth Slayden by this date.

Please see Walker-24336, where I have surmised that David married an Elizabeth after Sarah Slayden, while his dau Elizabeth was still Elizabeth Lowe in his estate, she marrying Willoughby Slayton-1354 only a few months later. Thanks to your posting, I suspect we have added another brick to a wall.
