20 "A Farmer. Lived at Loudon Co., VA; Louisville, KY; some time after 1830, moved to Manchester, Adams Co., Ohio; then about 1840 moved to Jo. Daviess Co., IL; then to Jackson Co., IA."

This couple had 7 children. 
Simpson, Henson (I7209)
 
21 "According to the 1850 Census, he was one of the wealthiest planters in Anne Arundel Co., with land appraised at $48,000. Besides his wife, Ann L., aged 56, there was in his household Ann McCaleb, aged 9" (Hall, Mareen Duvall 445). Hall, Henry Augustus (I7873)
 
22 "Another prominent union of Quaker families occurred when Johns Hopkins I and Elizabeth Thomas declared their intentions and were married on February 16, 1759, in accordance with Quaker rites. Elizabeth was the daughter of Samuel and Mary Snowden Thomas. Johns Hopkins I had married Mary Gillis and after her death Mary Richardson Crockett, widow and daughter of Joseph Richardson. Samuel Hopkins, who was born in February 3, 1759, the son of Johns Hopkins I and Elizabeth Thomas, married Hannah, daughter of Joseph and Hannah Jones Janney in August, 1792. Their son, born in May 16, 1795, became the great Baltimore Financier." Hopkins, Johns Sr. (I5529)
 
23 "Asahel Walker, Esq. (2d), son of Asahel Walker (1st), was born 2d mo. 7, 1788, in Sadsbury township. He was a man of marked intellect and energy, and set the same example of superior husbandry to his neighbors as his English ancestry; was justice of the peace for many years. He married Sarah Coates, the daughter of Samuel and --- Coates, of Chester Valley, near Coatesville, a family of English descent. She had brothers Warrick, Samuel, Levi, Joseph, George, and Richard. Samuel and Levi were recommended ministers of the Society of Friends. Joseph, a medical doctor, practiced his profession at Downingtown, Chester Co. Asahel Walker (2d), died 12th mo. 5, 1856. Sarah Walker, his wife, died 5th mo. 5, 1869, in her seventy-eighth year of age." Walker, Asahel Jr. (I4385)
 
24 "Benjamin married about 1696 Frances the daughter of Henry Hanslap of A.A. Co. Frances and an infant daughter died 1697."

Dates of her death and burial are recorded both All Hallow's and St. Jame's parish. As Montgomery explains, quoting the All Hallow's register, "'Frances, wife of Benjamin Wells died May 8, 1697, buried 11 May All Hallows Churchyard. Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin and Frances Wells buried May 11 1697, All Hallows Churchyard.' These deaths are recorded at All Hallows , and also at St. James, Anne Arundel, with slight discrepancy in dates. In 1697 the will of Henry Hanslap calls Benjamin Wells husband of my deceased daughter Frances." Since the All Hallow's record is specific about place of burial I would guess that it is accurate, and that the entry she mentions, recorded in Wright, was to mirror the All Hallows record. 
Hanslap, Frances (I10767)
 
25 "Bonittru" in the marriage record. Bouillet, Louis (I12491)

He was an officer under William, Prince of Orange, and commanded a company of dragoons at the battle of Boyne in 1690. He married, in Ireland, Hannah Faulkner, who with his children, Francis, Gabriel, William, Humphrey, Jacob, William, John, Sarah and Mary, accompanied him to Pennsylvania. The family settled in Easttown township, Chester county, where they were joined by Isaac Wayne in 1724, he having followed his parents to Pennsylvania. Anthony Wayne purchased by deed dated May 11, 1724, three hundred and eighty acres in Easttown, on which he lived until his death on December 2, 1739, at the age of seventy-three years. He was buried at St. David's Church, Radnor." Wayne, Capt. Anthony (I10030)

33 "Dr. Richard Waters, of Revolutionary Fame, was born about 1760, and served as a surgeon in the war for independence, and was noted for his skill as a surgeon as well as a practicing physician. After the close of the war, he purchased a large estate called "Spring Garden," on the road leading from Goshen to Gaithersburg, and the road from Mechanicsville to Clarksburg. Dr. Waters was born in Prince George's County, where he married Miss Margaret Smith, by whom he had several children. His son Richard was a prominent man in the County, and held the office of Sheriff, while his brother Somerset was a prominent Commission Merchant in Baltimore, and served a long time as a Tobacco Inspector" (101-02). Waters, Dr. Richard (I5306)

36 "Franklin, George E., of Annap., and Maria Caroline, daughter of the late Edward Johnson, Esq., of Balto., were married in the latter city on Thurs. evening last, by Rev. Dr. Henshaw" (June 14, 1838). 14 June was a Thursday, so this presumably refers to the previous week. Johnson, Maria Caroline (I3813)

38 "Gains Dickinson was the son of Joseph Dickinson, who came to America from Ireland, though he was said to be originally from England. He settled on Pequea Creek, in Salisbury township, and his sons, Gains and Joseph, inherited his estate. Deborah Dickinson, the daughter of Gains, was the mother of Isaac Walker.

42 "In the record book of Darby township we find a list of the early settlers, with dates of arrival, and among them ‘James Cooper from Bolton in the county Lancaster in 1675, and from Mayfield in the county of Stafford in the year 1683.' Whether he came to this country in 1675 and retured to England, or whether he removed from Bolton to Mayfield in that year is matter for conjecture. He probably married his first wife, Hannah, about 1698, but her maiden name has not been discovered. It appears they both came to this country as servants, doubtless for the purpose of obtaining the fifty acres each offered by William Penn to those who came in that capacity."

He was a constable for Darby Twp., Chester county in 1697.

This is Cope's biography of him:

"COOPER, JAMES, of Lancaster, England, removed to Mayfield, in the county of Stafford, about 1674, and in 1684 came to Pennsylvania, settling in Darby township. In the records of Darby Meeting we find the birth of Mary, 9, 4, 1699, and William, 5, 11, 1701, children of James and Hannah Cooper. Mary married James Johnson, of New Garden, in 1721, at which time her father was living at "Muscle Cripple" plantation, in New Castle County. In 1728, James Cooper was an attendant at Kennet Meeting, but nothing further is known of him."

He is included on the Quaker Ancestors page. 
Cooper, James (I9991)
 
43 "Isaac Lewis Walker is a graduate of Millersville Normal School. He is now conducting the homestead farm of his ancestors in Sadsbury." Walker, Isaac Lewis (I9983)
 
44 "Isaac Walker was born in Sadsbury township, Lancaster Co., Pa., Jan. 27, 1808. He is the son of Isaac and Deborah (Dickinson) Walker, the grandson of Asahel and Anna (Moore) Walker, the great-grandson of Isaac and Sarah (Jerman) Walker, and the great-great-grandson of Lewis and Mary (Morris) Walker. The English ancestry is given in the biographical sketch of Joseph C. Walker.

"Lewis came originally from the border of Scotland, but directly from Wales. He settled first at Philadelphia, and afterward at Valley Forge, where he purchased from Penn one thousand acres of land. He erected the first stone residence (still standing, though enlarged) at Valley Forge, and gave the ground for a Friends' meeting-house and cemetery. The house was used by Gen. Washington for his quarters, and the meeting-house for a hospital in the Revolution. The tract is still owned by his descendants, all of whom have been Friends.

"In the female line Mr. Walker is descended from the Moores, the Newlins, and the Dickinsons. James Moore came from the county of Antrim, in Ireland, in 1723, and was the progenitor of the Moores in Sadsbury. His daughter Anna was the grandmother of Isaac.

"Nicholas Newlin emigrated from Ireland about 1683, and settled in Delaware County. His great-great-granddaughter, Mary Newlin, married Gains Dickinson. They were the parents of Isaac's mother.

"Gains Dickinson was the son of Joseph Dickinson, who came to America from Ireland, though he was said to be originally from England. He settled on Pequea Creek, in Salisbury township, and his sons, Gains and Joseph, inherited his estate. Deborah Dickinson, the daughter of Gains, was the mother of Isaac Walker. The celebrated Anna Dickinson, of Philadelphia, was the great-granddaughter of Gains. Isaac was reared on the homestead of his ancestors, in Sadsbury, on which his father had erected a school-house, in which he taught a school during portions of several years. In this house Isaac received the rudiments of an education which was afterwards improved at the Friends' Grammar School in old Sadsbury. In accordance with the earnest solicitation and advice of his mother he learned the trade of a tanner and currier, and in 1830 he purchased a tannery in Sadsbury, where during a number of years he carried on the manufacture of leather in connection with the mercantile business. He erected a number of new buildings, and founded the village of Smyrna, in Sadsbury. In the winter of 1839, under the administration of Governor Porter, he was appointed to the charge of the difficult Gap Division of the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad, in which position he continued during five years, after which he was for three years engaged in mercantile business at Smyrna. In October, 1847, he purchased the mansion farm of his ancestors, near Gap, and during more than thirty years he was engaged in agricultural pursuits. In 1872 he purchased a square of ground in Gap, including the "Penn Spring" and the "Shawnee Garden," the home of his mother's ancestor, and he has since endeavored to assist in building up the village of Gap. He now (1883) is engaged in the business of general merchandise on the place which he purchased eleven years since.

"Mr. Walker was married Nov. 2, 1831, to Eliza Ann, daughter of Abner and Mary (Kinsey) Brooke, of Sadsbury. She was of the highly respectable families of Brooke, in Montgomery, and Kinsey, in Bucks County, that were among the very early settlers in those counties. The eleven children of Isaac and Eliza Ann Walker, only six of whom are living, were born as follows:

Anna Maria, 3d of 8th month, 1832;
Mary Louisa, 2d of 6th month, 1835;
Isaac Buchanan, 7th of 2d month, 1838;
Eliza Josephine, 26th of 6th month, 1839;
Mercy Brooke, 10th of 1st month, 1842;
James Madison, 1st of 5th month, 1843;
Esther Jane, 22d of 12th month, 1845;
Sarah Francis, 13th of 7th month, 1849;
Abner Brooke and Deborah Dickinson (twins), 25th of 7th month, 1852;
Isaac Lewis, 14th of 4th month, 1854.

Of these. Isaac Buchanan, Mercy Brooke, Abner Brooke, and Deborah Dickinson died in infancy. Eliza Josephine married Isaac Diller, of Sadsbury, and died 7th month, 1873, leaving three children,--Anna Louisa, Isaac Walker, and Daniel Coleman Diller. . . . Mr. Walker has always been an active, energetic man, both mentally and physically. It is related of him that he once walked from Philadelphia to his tannery in Sadsbury, fifty-two miles, in eleven hours and fifty-five minutes. He is still hale and active, though at the age of seventy-five, and attends in person to his business." 
Walker, Isaac Jr. (I9960)
 
45 "Isaac Walker, the seventh of eight children of Lewis and Mary (Morris) Walker, was born in Radnor, Chester County, March 7, 1705. He died (in Tredyffrin) February 23, 1755. He married, November 11, 1730, at the house of Hannah Jones, in Tredyffrin, Sarah Jarman, born in Philadelphia, October 25, 1713, a daughter of Edward Jarman, who was a resident of Philadelphia as early as 1703, and who died ther September 10, 1714, possibly a son of John and Elizabeth Jarman before referred to.

46 "Isaac Wayne, son of Captain Anthony and Hannah (Faulkner) Wayne, was born in county Wicklow, Ireland, in 1699, and came to Pennsylvania, in 1724. In connection with his elder brother, Francis Wayne, he purchased, in 1727, one hundred acres of land in Easttown, Francis transferring his interest to him in 1739. In addition to this, his father and mother, Anthony and Hannah Wayne, conveyed to him by deed dated May 8, 1739, six months before the father's death, three hundred and sixty acres of the homestead. He was one of the prominent men of his section; was one of the principal subscribers to the fund for the erection of St. Peter's Protestant Episcopal Church in East Wheatland township, and identified with other local enterprises. He was one of the active members of St. David's Church, Radnor, from 1723 to 1776.

"After the defeat of Braddock, in the fall of 1755, Isaac Wayne raised a company in Chester county, of which he was commissioned captain. He marched with the company to the defence of the frontiers of Northampton county, and when Dr. Franklin took charge of affairs there, in the autumn of 1755, he was stationed at Nazareth. He was stationed at DuPuy's near Smithfield, now Monroe county, January 3, 1756; was ordered to Gnaden Hutten, a Moravian town, near the present site of Allentown by Franklin, and assisted in erecting a stockade there which was called Fort Allen, also assisting in erecting other forts and stockades on the frontiers of Northampton county, during the fall and winter of 1755-56. In February, 1756, his company was relieved and disbanded. He, however, raised another company and participated with it in the Forbes campaign of 1757-58. He was a member of Provincial Assembly from Chester county, 1757-63.

"He died at Easttown, Chester county, November, 1774. Captain Isaac Wayne married Elizabeth Iddings, born 1709, died May, 1793, daughter of Richard and Margaret (Phillips) Iddings, of Chester county, Pennsylvania, and they had one son, Anthony Wayne, the distinguished general, born 1745, and two daughters, Hannah, wife of Captain Samuel Van Leer, and Ann, wife of William Hayman."
