Alfred Walker, with second wife Miranda (Dollie) Hicks Walker and son Thurman Ray Walker, about 1905 or 1906.
Alfred Walker's history was a mystery to our family for many years, but through DNA testing we have proof that he was was married four times. His first marriage to Charlottie Bella Smith resulted in our family line through his son Thomas Reginald Walker, but he seems to have disappeared about a year later. Documentation discovered by Ross Walker showed strong similarities with another Alfred Walker documented by his grandson Thomas Lee Walker. After Ross contacted Tom they decided to try a DNA test and the match proved they were descended from the same Alfred Walker. Tom had already done extensive genealogy work on the other three families, and much of this information is available on Ancestry.com. Click here.
