WALKER, Jacksonville, FL. - Sharpsburg, GA.
« on: Sunday 07 January 18 12:34 GMT (UK) »
Hi, from England.
I am hoping to find someone linked to the WALKER family of Jacksonville, Florida, and Sharpsburg, Georgia.

William and Harriet WALKER emigrated from England to Jacksonville, Florida in 1919.
The 1920/30/40 census all show them at: Precinct 28, Hogan, Duval, Jacksonville, Florida.

The men of the family were Machinists in the Jacksonville Shipyards, with records up to 1988.
In 2001, a later generation moved to Sharpsburg, Georgia (details further below). 

Family of William = Harriet WALKER.
William WALKER b.1871 m. Harriet WALKER (nee LUDLOW) b.1870 (both born England)
George William (son) b.1895, Woolwich, England

George William WALKER (b.1895) m. Margaret E. (b.1895, Ireland).
They had 4 children that I know of:
James A.         b.1922 Duval
Georgina M.     b.1924 Duval (m. Griswold SPARKS)
Francis William b.1925
George T.         b.1930 Duval

Francis William WALKER (b.1925) m. Dorothy M. CROOK 1943, Baker County, Florida.
[Moved to Sharpsburg, Georgia in 2001].
They had 4 children that I know of:
William Brian (died before his father)
F. (dau)
C.J. (dau)
W. (son)

Francis William and Dorothy WALKER moved to Sharpsburg, GA. in 2001 to be close to their family, so it would appear someone had previously moved there from the original family home in Jacksonville, Florida.

Francis William WALKER died in Sharpsburg in 2014.
He was known as 'Bill', and 'Poppie' to his grandchildren.
Much of what I have found regarding Francis William and Dorothy WALKER came from an Obituary I was fortunate enough to find for Francis William WALKER in Peachtree City, GA.

This is about all I have, so any help or suggestions to find a living relative would be appreciated.
With thanks,
Pete Fisk

RootsChat is meant for finding ancestors, rather than living relatives. Although anyone could pm you those details.
Personal details of any people known or thought to be living will be removed, in accordance with RootsChat policy, to avoid spamming and other abuses. So people here will be able to give you general tips and hints how to proceed, but not any concrete details.
You will also find more tips here:

and

You could try https://www.whitepages.com/ to see if you can match those names in the obituary of
Francis William Walker.

No just edit out the living children - instead of a name put initials or son/daughter of...........

The first couple I have looked for are deceased so you can leave those.

George Thomas Walker - 9 March 1930 Jacksonville Florida - 2 January 1977 Duval Florida.
Last Benefit 32223, Jacksonville, Duval, Florida.

I have deleted the grandchildren etc... I am not sure how to check if the others are still alive or not. Should I just delete the ones beyond the William Brian - the one who died before his father, Frances, Connie and William the doctor?

I think I possibly have it sorted now Sandra.
Sorry for the mistake, just shout if it still needs more editing.
