      RELIGIOUS SOCIETIES -- The Presbyterian Church of Milton and Cambridge was formed at Milton, August 14, 1837, by Reverend Messrs. Graham and John A. Meeks, appointed by Oxford Presbytery. Its first members were: Samuel, Margaret, and Alex. Brand, Julia Ann Walker, John Lincoln, George W., Catherine, and Susannah Snyder, Henry Shull, David T. and Isabella Hileman, and Alenor (sic) Allen. Henry Shull, David T. Hileman, Samuel Brand, and George W. Snyder were chosen elders. Meetings were held for two years at Milton, after which the place of meeting was changed to Cambridge, where, for many years, only occasional preaching was had; and meetings were held in the churches of other societies and in school-houses. In 1853 the name of the Presbytery was changed to Whitewater; and the same year the name of the church was changed to Presbyterian Church of Cambridge City. The present house of worship was built in 1858, on the corner of Railroad and Green streets, on a lot given to the society by Charles H. and Nathan Raymond. Since the first election of elders, Nathan H. Raymond was chosen to that office, June 21, 1846; Henry B. Dinwiddie, January 1847; Edward Raymond, 1852. Names of ministers who have supplied the congregation are the following: ___ ____ commenced his labors in 1847, and served two years, one-fourth of the time; 1857, A. McFarland, one-half of the time; H.M. Shockley, pastor, 1859 to 1861. Reverend Mr. Patton, late minister. The present one is not ascertained.

    • A number of researchers and online web sites have Sarah (Walker) Campbell as a daughter of George and Julia Ann (Welsh) Walker. This Sarah Walker married Joseph Campbell April 7, 1821, in Wayne County, Indiana. However, Sarah is not George and Julia's daughter. She is the daughter of Samuel Walker, and Agnes "Rebecca" Dryden. They lived in Richmond (Wayne County) Indiana. Sarah was not born in Tennessee, but rather in Ohio or Kentucky. A biography of her son, from Fountain County, Indiana (as republished on Rootsweb), had the following information about him. Other researchers online have her lineage correct, as well.

      Samuel Campbell, farmer and stock raiser, Stone Bluff, son of Joseph and Sarah (Walker) Campbell; the former a native of Kentucky, the latter of Ohio. Joseph Campbell first emigrated to Preble county, Ohio, then to Wayne county, Indiana, then to Vermilion county, Illinois, in 1837; then to Fountain county, Indiana, in 1840; then to Livingston county, Illinois, in 1851, where he died. Joseph is the son of John and Mary Campbell. Samuel Campbell, son of Joseph, is one of a family of four children. He was married in 1851, to Sarah A. Spinning, a native of Fountain county, and daughter of Isaac M. Spinning, an early pioneer. [...]

    The Region of Tennessee Where the Walker Family Settled in the Late 1700s
    The Region of Tennessee Where the Walker Family Settled in the Late 1700s
    The Lyon Creek area of Knox County, Tennessee, near the Holston River, is about 10 miles east and somewhat north of (present day) Knoxville, Tennessee. Many members of the family of Charles and Elenor Walker, who immigrated to Pennsylvania from Ireland in about 1767, settled in this area in the 1790s, when it was still part of North Carolina. Their daughter, Prudence, remained there for her entire life, and descendants of hers still inhabit the region. Their sons James and George left Knox County and moved to Wayne County, Indiana, sometime between 1806-1812.

    A letter, posted on this site, from Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker to his grandson, Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker in 1883 documents some of this history.
