Biographical/Historical Note

Lewis Walker (ca. 1770-1840) was born in Pennsylvania to Thomas Walker and Anna Hockley. In 1798, Walker married Sarah Yeats Hubley (ca. 1777-ca. 1841), daughter of Jacob Hubley and Margaret Burd, in Pine, Pennsylvania. They had three children: Margaret Hubley, Thomas Hubley, and Lewis Leonard. By 1813, Walker had moved to Catoctin Furnace, Maryland, where he stayed until at least 1815. Walker died in York, Pennsylvania, in 1840 and his wife died a year later in Germantown, Pennsylvania.
