Maria Magdalena Walk was the ninth of thirteen known children of Martin Walk Jr. (1737-1791) and Elisabeth (Liesel) Fiscus Walk (1750-1825), who married 22 Nov 1767 at Salem, Surry (then Stokes, then Forsyth) County, North Carolina.

Maria married John George Gladfelter/ Clodfelter Jr. (1780-1845) on 20 Oct 1803 at Stokes County, North Carolina. Maria and John were the parents of seven known children, namely:

1. Jesse Clodfelter (1804-1870)
2. Hannah Elisabeth Clodfelter Craver (1807-1881)
3. Fanny Clodfelter Hedrick (1810-1889)
4. Kelen Clodfelter (1812-1881)
5. Philip Clodfelter (1813-1888)
6. Nancy Clodfelter Deischer (1816-1891)
7. Jeremiah Clodfelter (1818-1890)

After Maria died John remarried to Maria's widowed elder sister, Johanna. John had a hat shop in North Carolina and a large farm in Illinois. The family moved to Illinois in 1837. Was Fanny Clodfelter (1810-1889) really a daughter of Maria and John? Or was she Fanny Miller? There is growing evidence that she was a Miller, not a Clodfelter.

Links to Maria's parents, husband, six of her seven known children and eleven of her twelve known siblings are included below.
