Mary was the daughter of John & Nancey Mullins Walker.

She was born at Dunns, Virginia.

Eight brothers and sisters were mentioned in the will of her father...Elizabeth Walker Bailey, Sarah "Sally" Walker Bowling, Chrispianos Walker, Margaret Walker Lilly (Meador), Nancy Walker Hatcher, Charles Walker, Cynthia Walker Wright, and Ursala Walker Bailey. All were heirs, with her brother Chrispianos as executor. Eli Bailey, Joseph Wright, & Symms Thompson acknowledged bond, with appraisels by C.W. Calfee, Josiah Ferguson, and B.B. Peck.

She married Samuel Bailey, the son of Richard Bailey II and Isabel Ferguson on 16 August 1816, in Giles county, Virginia; with the letter of consent from her parents signed and recorded. Both she and her husband inherited acreage from thier fathers.
In the 1870 census, Samuel and Mary's household was close to that of Cynthia, and to Samuel's brothers.
Mary died after this census. Date or record not known.

Her grandfather & grand uncles served with Generals Nelson and Lafayette-they were present at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown.
Her sons and nephews served in the Confederate Army, War Between the States; her grandsons and great grandsons in other wars. The numbers of her descendants who served (and still serve) this country are sizable.

Thanks to the cousins who provided the extra data to complete the links, you have been so helpful.
It is still uncertain whether markers will ever be found for Samuel and Mary - perhaps, as it has been noted that Eli and Charlotte had none, Samuel and Mary may not, or the markers may not have survived.
