See inventory of John Chezum/Cheezum, recorded on the above date (Caroline Co., MD Inventories Lib. JR#A fol. 16).

Samuel McMillan Manuscript - Moses Walker died 1855 at 63 years of age, Jane Walker, his wife, died 1858 at 66 years of age
Washington Reporter Newspaper - In 1818, 67 years ago, the dwelling house of MOSES WALKER, which stood on OIKE STREET where the house of THOMAS FORSYTH now stands, was entirely consumed by fire together with all its contents. It caught from a stable which stood on the opposite side of the alley, where BROWN'S building now stands. The fire was accidental and was caused by a [------?] leaving[?] [a?] fire in the stable. There was no dwelling house burned in CANONSBURG from that time until last week, a period of 67 years. Canonsburg has certainly been remarkable fortunate as far as fires are concerned.

Here they lived till the close of their lives in 1819, with but a day’s difference between their deaths. They were buried in what is now Oak Spring Cemetery. The children of Daniel who came to this country with their parents were John, Jenny, Peggy, Eliza, and Hugh. They all settled near Canonsburg except Eliza, who married George Marshman. All were married and raised families of children except Jenny. John McGill, the eldest, emigrated to this country a short time before his father. He married Mary Taggart in Ireland. Her brother Samuel also came to this town, and settled here. John McGill was elected high constable of the borough. In 1805 he owned a horse-mill; in 1809 he kept a tavern. Later he moved to the Bowland farm in Chartiers township, and afterwards returned to Canonsburg, and resided where Mrs. Denny now lives, and where he died. His children were Mary, John, Nancy, Jane, Alexander F., and Hugh. John settled in Pittsburgh. He was a cabinet-maker, and later a druggist. Nancy became the wife of John Haft, of Chartiers township.

Norvell, "The Reconstruction Courts of Texas, 1867-1873," Southwestern Historical Quarterly 62 (1958). Randolph B. Campbell - WALKER, MOSES B. (1819-1895). Moses B. Walker, Supreme Court justice, was born on July 16, 1819, in Fairfield County, Ohio, the son of John and Mary (Davis) Walker. Henry Winter Davis, the United States Representative from Maryland who played a major role at the onset of Reconstruction,qv was his first cousin. Walker attended Woodward High School in Cincinnati, Augusta College in Kentucky, and Yale College. After three years at Yale, he attended Cincinnati Law School and read law in Springfield, Ohio, before opening an office in Dayton, Ohio, and practicing law from 1846 until 1861. During this period he was elected to a term in the Ohio Senate (1850-51). At the outbreak of the Civil War,qv Walker volunteered and became colonel of the Thirty-first Ohio Volunteer Infantry. As a member of Gen. George Thomas's Army of the Cumberland throughout the war, he took part in virtually every major battle in which that army was engaged except Missionary Ridge. He was wounded three times at Chickamauga and reportedly had to be tied in the saddle due to fatigue and loss of blood. He was brevetted brigadier general of volunteers, served in the Atlanta Campaign, and concluded the war with the rank of brevet lieutenant colonel in the regular army as well as his volunteer command. At the end of the war Walker left the army briefly and ran unsuccessfully, in 1866, for the United States House of Representatives. He returned to active duty in 1868 and took part in the military occupation of Texas. In April 1869 Gen. Joseph J. Reynoldsqv appointed him judge of the Fourth Judicial District. He held that position only until November 27, 1869, when he was appointed to the state Supreme Court to replace Albert H. Latimer.qv When the Constitution of 1869qv went into effect, Governor Edmund J. Davisqv appointed him an associate justice on the reorganized three-man Supreme Court, on July 11, 1870. As a member of that court in 1873 Walker wrote the opinion in the "Semicolon Court"qv case, which ruled invalid the election in which Richard Cokeqv defeated Davis for the governorship. The ruling did not overturn Coke's victory, however, and when Coke appointed a new five-man Supreme Court in January 1874, under the terms of an 1873 constitutional amendment, Walker lost his position on the bench. Immediately upon the end of his tenure on the court, Walker left Texas and moved to Kenton, Ohio, where he resumed law practice. After serious injury in a fall in December 1879, he retired and lived on a farm in the suburbs of Kenton. Walker was married twice: to Maria Van Skyack in 1842 and, following her death in 1853, to Mary Hitt in 1855. With his first wife he had three children, and with his second, eight. Walker held the highest office in the Texas state government attained by any "carpetbagger"qv during the era of Reconstruction.qv He came with the army, almost certainly with no intention to stay in the state, but his motivation appears to have been primarily that of a Unionist patriot. During the war he had made speeches intended to build support for the Union military effort. As a lawyer and judge he was, in the words of James R. Norvell,qv who served on the Supreme Court nearly a century later, "a lawyer of ability [who] possessed some literary talent. Even the Semicolon decision demonstrated that he was a skilled technician." Moses B. Walker died at Kenton, Ohio, in 1895.

James Kelley was born about 1785, and died Nov. 18, 1849, on his plantation on the Yocoma River in LaFayette County, Mississippi, where he was a prosperous farmer. Before moving to Mississippi about 1845, he had lived in Georgia., probably in Jones County, not far from Macon, and then in Coweta County for a few years. He was married twice, and left ten children and many descendents today in Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas.
His first wife died in Georgia after the birth of eight children. I do not know her name for certain, but it may have been Mary Wyatt. His second wife was named Harriett. She was much younger than James Kelley, and after his death she married James Harrison and lived in LaFayettte County until she died about 1855. by Mrs. Rudene Kelley Morris, amendum: Rudene passed away Feb 25, 1985.

James was born in 1789, the son of William Kelley in Wilkes County, Georgia. His parents died before he was ten years old. His uncle Moses Walker raised James and his sister Jane.  James and Jane drew land in the 1807 land lottery, being eligible as orphans, in Jones County, Georgia.  He had eight children by his first wife (name unknown), and lived on the a farm near the Ocmulgee river in Jones County, Georgia.   James and his family came to Coweta County after its formation in the 1825-26. The family later moved to Butts County and returned to Coweta County between 1828 and 1832. He, also, owned land in Carroll and Randolph County, GA (Source: James H. Kelley)
In 1832 James purchased about 810 acres in Coweta County in the area of Madras. James was a trustee of Concord Methodist Church, between Palmetto & Newnan, on the Old Campbellton Road, Coweta County, Georgia.  About 1840 his first wife died, and he married Harriett (last name unknown). Harriett and James moved to Lafayette County, Mississippi in 1845.

73 HAWES SCHOOL MEMORIAL - MOSES WEBSTER WALKER. The next master of the school was a man of quite a different temperament from his immediate predecessor. In fact there ould scarcely be found two men more widely contrasted in their methods of discipline than Masters Page and Walker.
Moses Webster Walker, A.B., was the son of Benjamin and Hannah (Webster) Walker, of Atkinson, N. H., at which town he was born June 17th, 1810. He was educated at Dartmouth College, Hanover, N. H., graduating at that institution in the class of 1831. A year after his graduation, when he was but twenty-two years of age, he was appointed principal of the Hawes School.
He assumed the charge of the school as the successor of Mr. Page and as the sixth master, on the 28th of August, 1832. He knew of the disorganized condition of the school, and he was resolved to put a stop to the outrageous conduct of the scholars and to assert his authority in a manner that should admit of no doubt as to his intentions. An opportunity for this purpose presented itself on the very first day of his experience as master. His attempts to preserve order were opposed and ridiculed by a boy named Harrington, who was called to the platform and severely flogged for his offensive conduct. Master Walker's first words to the school indicate him as a man of firmness and
determination, whatever may have been his other qualities. Part of his account of this affair to the committee is here given :
" I found the scholars collected and in great disorder. I took the chair, stamped loudly upon the floor, and called the school to order. And here for the first time Harrington attracted ray attention, by continuing his talk and laughter. I again enjoined silence, directing my remarks particularly to Harrington, after which the house was still. I then said : ' Hear me. I see many things which I do not like, and which must not be continued. I am about to command you to do some few things, and I shall speak but once. Be careful to obey me promptly, as a failure in this respect will expose you to certain punishment.' Seeing a great part of the scholars supporting their heads upon their hands, with elbows upon their desks, I said to them, ' The first thing which you are to do is to take your elbows from those desks.' This was instantly done by all except Harrington, to whom I again addressed myself, in a manner which left no room for his mistaking my meaning. Upon this he removed his elbows from his desk, but assumed a smile in which I read his character. The children were then told to fold their arms, and to remain in that position until further orders. This was done; but I now observed that Harrington and two or three in his immediate vicinity were casting looks at each other and laughing. They were ordered to take those smiles from their faces ; whereupon Harrington removed his arms from
the position in which he had just been commanded to hold them, placed his elbows on the desk, his hands before his face, and continued laughing and looking from behind his hands at the boys about him."
Master Walker goes on to state that after this third exhibition of his indifference he thought it necessary to make an example of the boy. He was accordingly called to the platform, flogged several times and made to perform several tasks. These he did reluctantly at first, but finally submitted with a good grace, and was then allowed to take his seat.
This occurrence was the occasion of considerable excitement upon its becoming known outside the school limits. The father of the boy whipped, Mr. Leonard Harrington, complained to the committee that his son " was cruelly beaten and wounded by Mr. Moses W. Walker, master of the Hawes School, South Boston, for no such misconduct on the part of the boy as would have justified tlie infliction of even moderate chastisement, much less the aggravated whipping he received." Ho requested an investigation, with a view of obtaining redress in case his charges against the master were sustained. The investigation was held, and the master defended his conduct in a straightforward manner as appears from the foregoing extract. It seems evident from this account that the boy was a very refractory pupil, probably a ringleader of others, and certainly needed strong measures to repress him. The case was referred to a special committee appointed by the school committee. Both sides were heard, the evidence of pupils present at the time of the affair was taken, and the opinion of a physician who was called to examine the wounds was given. From all this testimony it appeared to the committee that the master was not angry at the time he punished the boy, but was perfectly cool, and that the boy's injuries were not such as to show cruel punishment. Master Walker was therefore sustained by the committee, and he continued his course of punishment for nearly a year and a half, until he had brought the school to a good state of discipline.
This description affords an excellent illustration not only of the local but of the general system of discipline in the Boston schools of half a century ago; for it must be remembered that at that time the infliction of corporal punishmentwas much more common in the schools than at the present time. Master Walker was probably not more severe in this respect than were many of his cotemporary masters ; and when we consider his youth — being but seven or eight years older than some of the oldest boys, and at an age when the temptation to give way to excitement and passion is often too powerful to successfully resist — the wonder is that he controlled himself so well, not that he punished so often, when the low state of the school at that time is kept in mind.
But while Master Walker may have secured the proper obedience and discipline in his pupils, the main question remains to be answered ; — whether the system of bodily whipping has a tendency to bring forth the highest forms of school education by inspiring fear of the master and so compelling the pupil to learn his lessons. The system of corporal punishment has been frequently discussed. It has been both defended and denounced with vigor for many years ; until, thanks to the advancing civilization of the present day, it has mainly disappeared from our school system. The plan of learning lessons under compulsion is of little value ; and that education is the poorest which is inspired
by fear of, not love for, the master. Compulsory lessons are soon forgotten, and the time bestowed on them is mostly wasted. But that system which creates an interest in his lessons in the mind of the pupil, and which fosters that interest by extraneous and ingenious ways, is of all methods the best yet discovered to enable the pupil to retain and remember what he has learned ; and such a system can best begin by the scholar having a respect and love for his teacher, so that he listens with interest and not with indifference to what is told or explained to him. Such a system, as will shortly be seen, was soon put in practice at the Hawes School with the best results.
Master Walker was not only sustained in his government of the school, but was promoted; for in 1833 he was made equal in rank to the masters of the other schools, a position since held by all the masters. But while he had the confidence and support of the committee, he did not succeed in winning the respect of the citizens of South Boston who were opposed to his severity of discipline ; and after a term of nearly a year and a half he resigned his position on the I4th of January, 1834.
He was immediately appointed grammar master of the Mayhew School. This school was considerably older than the Hawes, having been founded in 1803, at the corner of Hawkins and Chardon Streets, at the request of the citizens of West Boston who needed another school. It was originally a school for boys, and was named for the Rev. Jonathan Mayhew in 1821. It afterwards became a school for both sexes, and remained on its original site until 1847, when another school-house was erected on Hawkins Street, at some little distance from the first one. The school was discontinued in 1876. Mr. Walker succeeded Mr. William Clough as grammar master in 1834 at the old school building, and while in charge of it he had the assistance of Mr. Aaron Davis Capen as writing master, who was formerly an assistant at the Hawes School, and has been previously noticed in this work. The Mayhew School was finally organized under one head, and for boys only.
While master of the Mayhew School, Mr. Walker was married on the 30th of April, 1834, to Miss Sophia Rebecca Cutter, daughter of Edward and Elizabeth (Nutting) Cutter, of Charlestown, Mass. By this marriage he had two sons. His eldest son, Edward M. Walker, was a volunteer in the Union service during the Rebellion, and was present at the battle of Bull Run as a member of the Fifth Regiment Mass. Volunteers.
Master Walker's life was a brief one.
He died at Boston on the 22d of November, 1838, at the early age of twenty-eight years, five months and five days, and was the first of the masters of the Hawes School to pass away. He governed the Hawes School for a period of a year and a half, and the Mayhew School for nearly five years until his death. It is a fair presumption that had lie lived to more mature years he would have made an
excellent master. His defects were seemingly those incidental to youth. In character he appears to have been self-reliant, energetic and firm, and in intellectual training he was apparently well equipped. In his service of over six years as an instructor nothing appears against him that the committee could condemn, and when advancing age had given him that steadiness and reflecting power that comes with it, his record for efficiency and usefulness would probably have made him a teacher of high reputation. That he was rash, eccentric in his system of punishment and possibly headstrong, maybe admitted; but that he was intentionally violent or cruel in his methods is a charge that cannot be sustained by any evidence in his career.
Master Walker's widow remained as a teacher at the Mayhew School for several years after the death of her husband.
