The name Walker is as common as Kemmler in my hometown area. I’m aware of at least one case where also on the Walker side all parents have been Walker from various tribes of the family.
Thanks to the close cooperation with my cousins Brenda Kearns and Gena Schantz in the US, who are descendants of two Walker brothers from Wankheim I have a number of great documents and information on the Walker families.
Here all posts related to the Walker family:
