About Susannah Walker

In 1826, Felix Walker wrote his memoirs. Forty-eight years after she died, the Honorable Mr. Walker described his marriage to Susan Robertson, daughter of Colonel Charles Robertson, DAR Ancestor Number A097109, and wife, Susannah Nichols.

"Thinking it necessary to become a citizen of the world, in its utmost latitude, concluded to marry. Accordingly I was married to Susan Robinson, a beautiful girl of fifteen, on the 8th of January, 1778, daughter of Col. Chas. Robinson — where I had resided for 3 years past. In March ensuing, my wife and self paid a visit to my father in Rutherford, designed to spend the summer. On the 28th of June, my dear girl had a miscarriage which terminated her existence. She died on the 9th day of July, 1778, six months after our marriage. This was the most momentous and eventful year in which I lived, through the whole period of my life. I was so shocked and impressed with so unexpected an event, that my mind was almost lost. Absorbed in grief almost insupportable, I felt so deeply afflicted that I thought all my prospects of happiness were buried with the woman I loved.... I continued at my father's as a home for about 16 months under the pressure of a wounded and broken spirit, rather in a state of despondency, spending my time without much effect. The war now raging in its utmost violence, I was occasionally with the Whig or Liberty party, though took no commission as I might have had. The county of Rutherford was at this time stricken off from Tyron — now Lincoln County — and made a new county. I was appointed Clerk of Court in October 1779, which brought me into business. Entering Public Service in First Days of American Politics After some time, my spirits began to revive and gradually emancipate me from my drooping situation... "

When he had somewhat recouped from his deep depression, Walker married 152191618 Isabella Henry. She was the daughter of William Henry and Isabella McKeown.

The burial place of Susan Walker has been lost to history. We have placed a Memorial Stone in her honor in the Cantrell Gilliand Memorial Garden as a tribute to a lovely love story set against a backdrop of the tumultuous times called the American Revolution.
