White's description of the settlement on Walker's Creek is largely, but not completely supported by land records. The two tracts dated to are almost certainly for Alexander "Sawney" and his brother "Gunstocker John". These tracts were probably settled inand their title was conveyed in The tract dated to James Walker is probably the one originally owned by Alexander Walker son of John IIand transferred to his son James in The final tract dated was almost certainly owned by John Walker III, as court records refer to the owner of this same parcel as "John Walker and wife Ann".
A significant point about this is that the John III parcel was not aquired until White's description, presumably based on family information gathered in her research, makes no mention of John III as one of the early settlers on Walkers Creek. Another factor that ties this property into ownership by John III is that it was sold almost immediately sold.
At that time Indian attacks on the Virignia frontier forced may of the settlers to quit the area for North Carolina.
County records for 19 August, note that " John Walker removed out of the Colony", and are probably referring to John III, and consistent with the sale of his Walker Creek property in that year. We might ask, "Why does White not mention James, who is clearly in the area based on land records. It appears from the land records that James died or left the area sometime before Records do not seem to have survived on this point, but it appears that this southern parcel at the foot of Jump Mountain, came into possession of Alexander Walker, who later transferred it to his son James in She may also have picked up on the fact that it had come into the possession of Alexander Walker, and assumed that since it was owned by a cousin, that this Alexander Walker the brother of John III.

The will was probated inwhich is probably the basis for which many have identified his year of death as He developed an interest in trying to find a means of obtaining fire easily.
Several chemical mixtures were already known which would ignite by a sudden explosion, but it had not been found possible to transmit the flame to a slow-burning substance like wood. While Walker was preparing a lighting mixture on one occasion, a match which had been dipped in it took fire by an accidental friction upon the hearth.
He at once appreciated the practical value of the discovery, and started making friction matches. They consisted of wooden splints or Cottonfields (Campos De Algodon) - John Walker (3) - This Is John Walker (Vinyl) of cardboard coated with sulphur and tipped with a mixture of sulphide of antimonychlorate of potashand gumthe sulphur serving to communicate the flame to the wood.
The price of a box of 50 matches was one shilling. With each box was supplied a piece of sandpaper, folded double, through which the match had to be drawn to ignite it. He named the matches " Congreves " in honour of the inventor and rocket pioneer, Sir William Congreve. He did not divulge the exact composition of his matches. Two and a half years after Walker's invention was made public, Isaac Holden arrived, independently, at the same idea of coating wooden splinters with sulphur.
