A pair of Walkers

14 July 2019

Thanks to Laura Elliott for finding an excellent newspaper narrative about George Burgwin Anderson – with especially good details about his travails after being wounded in the foot at Sharpsburg.

One detail being that the General’s brother R. Walker Anderson, also wounded, traveled with him to the end.

I hadn’t known about Walker, and while pulling his string found this fantastic tidbit, from a genealogy talking about his Florida cousin, also called Walker:

This genealogy page is from The Reads and their relatives; being an account of Colonel Clement and Madam Read of Bushy Forest, Lunenburg County, Virginia, their eight children, their descendants, and allied families by Alice Riddle Read Rouse (1930).
