The DNA group is 33. We're the group that caused the hiccups. Mary Ann

I finally received the death certificate for William Donaldson Walker, b. Jan. 19, 1847, in Greenup County, Ky. d. June 4, 1929 in Hunt County, Tx. The certificate says that his parents are not known. He was the father of Samuel William Vestus Walker, b.1886 in Tx. Don't know if he was an orphan or just didn't want it known who his parents were. Vestus named his son William Donaldson, and then William chose the name Samuel William for his son. Curious about the choice of Samuel for the first names of these sons. Is it too much of a stretch to try to link this to the orphan Samuel you have been writing about?
Here is more information on Jo Anna Carroll, wife of WDW. She was born April 22, 1863 in Little Rock, Ark. Came to Texas in 1864 with her parents. In 1880 she married WDW and they had nine children. There names were Nannie, Felix, Charlie, Homer, Wylie Bert, Samuel Wm. Vestus, Bert J., Mae, and Anna.
