Walker/Heisler

My Walker and Heisler lines.

Attached is the pedigree chart of William Harry Walker, born 28 December 1894 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Harry was the son of William Zade Walker and Nannie Melvina Heisler. This Walker line is from Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire, England. Abraham Walker and wife Anne Orme came to Philadelphia in the mid-1840s to work in the textile industry in Philadelphia. Abraham and Ann both came from families of cotton spinners. Abraham’s brothers John and Jeremiah also came to Philadelphia. The Heisler line is much more of a mystery. Nannie was born in Baltimore and her mother Mary A. Harford was the daughter of Washington Harford, who for a time was a prominent ice dealer in Baltimore. William H. Heisler was born in Ohio, but spent much of his adult life in Baltimore. This has been the line that I have been working recently with the help of several cousins. There is still a lot of work to be done.
