Teresa: I don't know anything about the Walkers, however a very little
about the Van
I'm related to Margaret E. Oliver who married Alamanzer Gaines. They lived
Wyoming County, NY. In some of my aunt's papers she gave me is an old
article about Mrs. Lydia C. Oliver who turned 100. She was a widow and her
been Even Oliver. They lived in Old Chatham, Vermont. Her maiden name was
Van Valkenburgh. Her parents were Lawrence and Mary (Polly) Lippitt Van
Mrs. Oliver's great grandfather _________Van Valkenburgh was a native of
came to this country and staked out a claim of a thousand acres, situated
the present village of Malden Bridge. Lawrence and Polly were the parents
of 11 children.
Perhaps Charity could have been Lydia's sister.
I hope this helps you.
