RE: Sylvia Walker
Good for you! Will you link her to her husband? Do you have access to Lawrence records????

RE: Re: Harrison Arbaugh
I found George Nash Walker's Find A Grave page (in Lawrence) but I did not find Sylvia's. I checked under Walker; found two others but not her. She's gotta be there somewhere. I got a big kick out of that story!

RE: Reply Kerr line
Great. I have enjoyed the things that I have found about my Richard Kerr ancestor. Good luck with their research.

Reply Kerr line
My Kerr line is from Missouri and Illinois.
They also migrated to Texas.

We are decedents of James and Patience (nee Wells) Kerr of Pennsylvania who migrated to Missouri via Kentucky.

Their son Richard Kerr was a politician and lawyer.
Richard Kerr's immigrant ancestor was the Rev. James Kerr, Sr., a Northern Ireland Presbyterian minister, who settled in Pennsylvania where he married a widow, Mrs. Susan Hyde in 1746. Their son, the Rev. James Kerr, Jr, a practical Baptist minister, was the first Protestant to preach west of the Mississippi. He married Patience Wells, the daughter of Col. Richard Wells and Nancy Brown. They were the parents of ten children. Their eldest son, Major James Kerr III was the first American to settle on the Guadlupe River. He was the founder of Gonzales, Texas, the capitol of Green DeWitt's colony, and Kerr County, Texas was named for him.

Richard Kerr, in addition to serving in the Illinois Legislature, as stated in the article, served eight years in the House of Representatives in Missouri. At one time was also the sheriff of Pike County, Missouri and an Indian Agent. He married his first cousin Ruth Wells and they were the parents of Zerilda Wells, Margaret Wells Cannon, Patience Wells Smith/McElfresh, Elizabeth Jane Wells, Mary Wells Steele and Carolyn Wells Duncan.
