Alexander - b. about 1645. Reported to have been ordained Sep. 1699 and settled at Southwark Parish, Surry Co., VA in 1702.

? Elizabeth - b. Jan. 13, 1658; d. 1725, New Kent Co., VA. Virtually every detail of the family of Elizabeth WALKER and Edward JOHNSON/JONSTONis based on conjecture, including the names of their parents and children. The information presented here is for the purpose of stimulating further research. Refer also to the narrative concerning the families of Peter MASSIE and Daniel JOHNSON. Married in 1677 in New Kent Co., VA to Edward JOHNSON, possibly the son of Dr. Arthur JOHNSTON and Barbara GORDON. Reported children, all unproven: Benjamin married Margaret MASSIN (daughter of George MASSIE); Arthur; and Michae l(possible father of Daniel JOHNSON).
