Subject: Hansford D. Walker of South Carolina, Mississippi & Louisiana

Looking for the parents/origins of Hansford D. Walker, my ggg grand father. He was born in Nov. 1809 in the Barnwell, South Carolina area and died in Feb. 1864 in Rapides Parish, La. We can't seem to get a handle on who Hansford's parents were. Have looked at Laben/Labon Walker & Hezekiah Walker (several) but have come up empty so far. Several Walker families, including Hansford, migrated from South Carolina to Mississippi in the early 1800's but we haven't been able to positively link him to any one of them as of yet.

Hansford married Elizabeth Myers (1813 - 1894) in 1830 in Lawrence County, Mississippi. She was the daughter of John Myers (1775 - 1840) and Frances Massey (1778 - 1847). Hansford Walker and Elizabeth spent the majority of their lives in Mississippi (Lawrence, Simpson & Scott Counties) before moving to central Louisiana in the mid to late 1850's.

Hansford D. Walker and Elizabeth Myers had nine (9) children:

1. Oliver Perry Walker (1832 - 1916)
2. Frances Ann Walker (1834 - 1899)
3. Mary Ann Walker (1839 - 1864)
4. Wiley Pinkney Walker (1842 - 1924)
5. Wyatt Walker (1844 - )
6. Amanda Walker (1846 - 1901)
7. Irene Walker (1848 - 1925)
8. William P. Walker (1851 - 1898)
9. Wilkin Walker (1855 - 1923)

Any help, suggestions, hints, etc would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Hey cousin, any luck finding info on dear old Hansford D. ? I searched high and low and never found anything. What document actually shows him born in South Carolina? I know that is my assumption as well but not hard facts to prove me correct. Thinking about making a run to Scott and Lawrence counties in MS to see if I can shake the tree.

Good luck, Walter Murrell Walker Jr. (Walt)
