In comparing your posted family tree and my own, it appears that we share James Walker (1829-1877) and wife Mary Hannah Smith (1830-1905) as common ancestors (note: my records listed 1828 as the birth year for James). Although I do not have the names of their children, I suspect that my great-grandfather Charles A Walker may be a sibling to their daughter “Polly” Walker in your tree because he has the same parents (plus I have an old photograph that my grandfather labeled “Aunt Polly” on the back and often wondered who that might be...). Three years ago, I entered the Walker family tree information prepared by my maternal grandfather on Wikitree (John V. Walker born at Brownedge House, Walton LeDale, Lancaster, Preston, England, 1884).
Beyond the 4 generations posted on FTDNA, my grandfather's records identified two additional generations of ancestry for our shared ancestor James Walker with only the following limited details: (1) Father of James: John Walker born 15 June 1795, and (2) Grandfather of James: John Walker died 20 January 1820, husband of Mary Arrowsmith....
