Sarah Walker
died 232 years ago today in 1777 at age 79 in Wellfleet, Barnstable, Massachusetts.  Sarah is the boys' 8th great-grandaunt.  Her brother is Jeremiah Walker, the boys' 8th great-grandfather, whom I show lived to be 108 years old.  Not impossible, but not likely.  Jeremiah married Esther Tomlin in 1724 and begot Benjamin Walker the boys' 7th great-grandfather who married Sylvia Keith and begot Marshall Walker.  Marshall is the father of Cady R. Walker, born in 1795 who married Electa Sparks in 1813 and begot Almira Walker the wife of Samuel Cheney Cotton, the boys' 4th great-grandfather.  The Walker line is the line that takes us back to the Mayflower when William Walker (1620-1703) married Sarah Snow, the daughter of Nicholas Snow and Constance Hopkins, who was on the Mayflower with her family.
