Walking in the Footsteps of his Ancestors
In 1793, Loyalist William Walker left North Carolina for Canada, where he was granted land in Grimsby Township and Clinton, Ontario. His descendant, William Timothy Walker, recently made the 820-mile journey, on foot, from Orange County, North Carolina, to Lincoln County, Ontario, in 68 days. (His blog — listed incorrectly in the article — can be found here.)
