  • Notes  Married:
    • In Genealogy of the Descendants of John Walker of Wigton, Scotland, an illustration adjacent to page 8 of that work is presented as Gov. William Walker. Catherine Rankin Walker. The drawing appears to be a standard husband and wife portrait. However, Gov. William Walker was not married to Catherine Rankin Walker...she was his mother. The text concerning the genealogy of both William Walker, Sr. (father of Gov. Walker) and of Gov. William Walker give the proper relationships.

      Only the fact that they were married verified.
