  • John Walton died in 1772, just prior to the Revolution. He and his wife, Mary Sims, had at least 12 children. Those 12 children ventured out in two basic directions. The older set of sons and daughters (intermarried with Bakers and Edwards) pioneered Kentucky and Tennessee. They were the children of Rev Simeon Walton, Jesse Walton, and George Walton and Mary Walton. These three brothers were "Separate Baptists" and in 1768 petitioned to worship in their own church, established in George Walton's home. Those brothers were denied the right to worship as dissenters in their own home. That is what separation of Church and State was all about ... and what those men wound up fighting for! That set branched out ever westward to Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. The younger bunch of John's children set their sights on Georgia and pioneered Georgia as soon as those lands were opened up in the 1770's and 1780's. The Georgia Waltons in subsequent generations pioneered Alabama (after the Creek War) and Florida, intermarrying with some of the first residents of Florida. You cannot study Walton family history without studying the history of the United States. The Walton role in the shaping of the South and West is fascinating. Read up on it, it is great fun! My latest quest has been to find the maiden name of Robert Walton Jr's mother, Elizabeth. She was first married to John Burgamy, who was hanged by the British in 1781. Her second husband was Barnard Heard, an older man that was recently widowed. He was the brother of the first Governor of Georgia, Stephen Heard. Barnard Heard died a few years after their marriage and by about 1785, Elizabeth was married to Robert Walton (son of John Walton & Mary Sims). My guess is that Elizabeth may have been a Harris. There were some Burgamy's married into the Harris family in Hanover County, VA. They were Hugenots that fled France and went to England, settling in the Colonies. The Harris's were also intermarried with the Walton's in several generations, specifically, Robert's sister Mizapina was married to a Robert Harris. I believe that when I weed through those Harris connections to Burgamy and Walton, I might find an Elizabeth that fits the bill. If anyone has any ideas or information, please email me.
