Great-great-grandmother Millie C Walker is buried in the very old Legg-Coffman family cemetery in Giles county Tenn., which was a bit overgrown, according to a cousin who explored it in the early 90's. Millie's mother-in-law was a Coffman (Rebecca Coffman Walker, born in TN, in 1797). Rebecca was the daughter of David Coffman, who's ancestry I have traced back to 1556 in Switz, to ancestor - Jacob Khauffmann (his wife: Anni Buercki, brn 1570-Switz). A number of Rebecca Coffman Walker's siblings married into the local Legg family, many of whom are also buried here. It is located on the TN side, just across the border from Limestone County, Alabama. The Walkers and Coffmans moved to Limestone Co., AL in the 1820s. The Lovel Walker farm in Limestone Co., AL is about 400 yards south of the Legg-Coffman cemetery - Giles Co., TN.
Millie and Lovel Walker had 8 children: Israel Ezra, Lovel Andrew, Joel R, Lydia O, William Dan, Shadrack H, George and Ada Ophelia. When Millie passed away, Lovel remarried and three more children were born: Dorcas Ann, Ora Lea and Eunice W Shannon. By 1903, Lovel and all (except two who passed in AL) of his children had moved from Limestone Co., TN, to Hill Co., TX.
Millie & Lovel's sons Andrew N Walker & Joel R Walker, were the very first to make the move to TX, in 1879.
