Elias, son of Peter and Sarah (LAND) WALKER, was born near Willow Grove, Montgomery county, in the year 1826, and lived the uneventful life of a well-to-do farmer in that locality, filling such local positions as the interests of the community demanded of him.  He married Amanda CARSON, and they were the parents of four children; Theresa; Edwin C.; Ella, who married Harry McNAIR, and they had one child, a son, George Russell McNAIR; and George, who married Emma FORCE, in 1900.

            Edwin C. WALKER was reared on a farm in Horsham township, and acquired a good common school education.  In 1876 he married Fannie L. JOHNSON, daughter of Frederick and Harriet Newell (WAIT) JOHNSON, and began life as a farmer, which vocation he has since followed, first in Horsham and later in Southampton township, Bucks county, where he has a fine farm.  In politics he is a Republican, but has never held other than local office.  He has served in the office of township supervisor for two terms, and filled other local offices.  He and his family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.  Mrs. WALKER is of English descent, her maternal grandparents being John and Sarah (KYLE) WAIT.  Mr. and Mrs. WALKER are the parents of two children; Fannie, born in 1877; and Mabel, born in 1884.
