My brick wall is finding the parents of Absalom Walters, b. VA Feb 18, 1786 d. Jan 1, 1839, buried Temple Cemetery, Table Grove, Fulton County. Was he the brother or cousin of William Walters b. TN April 15, 1787 d. Sept, 1877, buried Temple Cemetery, Table Grove, Fulton County?

Absolom (also Absalom) married Elizabeth unk and had sons John b. 10//Oct 13, 1810; Peter b. Oct 10, 1816; Daniel b. ~1820, plus possible 2 other children. I descend from Peter.

Absolom is mentioned within the text of the Fulton Co. Biographies as grandfather of Wm. G. Walters. Wm. G. Walters father was John. He is also listed in the military records, in the same regiment as William.

Does anyone have any information of the line that leads up to Absolom? Have scoured the genealogy websites and shared numerous emails with 'distant cousins' with no solid answer.

Thanks for any help - contact Lynn at
