Daughter of William Walton and Justina Louisa (GENNERICK) Walton, the owners of Strawberry Hill Plantation. She grew up at Strawberry Hill and lived at Rosemount Plantation after her marriage.
The following description of her sister Justina Walton Webb is from the Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine, Volume 53 (1919), Page 607: Georgia has very few real Daughters of the Revolution left. In the old ancestral home, Strawberry Hill, near Forkland, Ala., resides the only living daughter of the Joseph Habersham Chapter, of Atlanta, Mrs. Justina Walton Webb. Her father when a small boy was sent with the clothes for his brother Tillman, who was serving with Gen. Washington. The General was so impressed by this small boy that he made him his messenger. Tillman was in the boat with Gen. Washington the night he crossed the Delaware. George Walton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, was his cousin. Jestina Walton was born October 17, 1831, the youngest child by a second marriage. She was educated in a seminary at Marion, Ala., and at a French school in Mobile, Ala. Her cousin Mrs. Octavia Walton Levert was known on two continents for her beauty and mental attainments, and the two spent a happy girlhood together, attending parties and balls in Mobile and other cities in the South. Her grandmother Amelia Smith arrived from Edinburg, Scotland the night the tea was thrown overboard in Boston Harbor. She always said it was the most noted teaparty she ever attended. Her uncle, Caleb Whitford was secretary to the British Commishioner for treating for peace with America. An engraving of him by S. W. Reynolds 1795 is in the possession of Mrs. Webb. He was a personal friend of Sir Walter Scott and of Robert Burns. In Goldsmith's "Retaliation", mention is made of him.
Mrs. Webb's husband, Col. James D. Webb, a gallant soldier of the Civil War, was killed in battle in July, 1863, near Winchester, Tenn.
With the 4th Alabama Division when it sailed for France were Harry Young Cocke and James A. Webb, both grandsons of our Real Daughter. Cocke was invalided home, and Webb became Adjutant of the First Brigade, One Hundred and Sixty-seventh Infantry, under Major Carroll, and returned to the United States with the rank of captain.
Our "Real Daughters," whose lives are rich in memories of the past, are indeed a priceless possession, and may their influence abide with us always.
