Eunice Walker b. 1728

Eunice Walker 6th great grandma on RootsMagic tree

Eunice Walker was born September 4, 1728 in Rehoboth, Massachusetts and probably grew up in the Walker House (still standing in Rhode Island) built by her father Timothy, on the land her great grandfather Philip Walker originally owned. Eunice married James Hill(s) on May 11, 1749. She and her husband lived in Massachusetts, had a family and farmed. James was a Captain in the early years of the American Revolution so Eunice kept their home and farm going while he was away. She was named in her dad Timothy’s 1745 will: give unto my Daughter Unis one hundred pounds in Bill of Credit. Eunice died at age 44 on December 31, 1772, her husband survived her and most likely did not remarry. Whether by coincidence or as a namesake Eunice’s great granddaughter Delia Angel Flood would name her daughter Eunice in 1872 Shell Rock, Iowa.
