  • Notes 
    • Society of Mayflower Descendants #86727 -Approved 21 Mar 2014
      The General Society of the Mayflower Descendants penned the following notes on the approved application paper:

      ~That Desire Walker being the child of Issac and Desire (Shelly) Walker is "extremely circumstantial based on

      ~Desire was born "Perhaps Woodbridge, Middlesex Co.,/NJ, LC/Swansea"

      ~Desire was married to Joseph Freeman "ca. 1731"

      (Desire Walker Freeman is the 4th generation Mayflower descendant)
    • CIRCUMSTANTIAL INFORMATION ON DESIRE WALKER

      - Isaac appears to have accompanied his uncle Samuel Walker to NJ in 1692. Samuel Walker married ca. 1672 or, more likely, 1679 to Sarah Scottow, who was b. ca. 1754 daughter of Boston merchant Joshua Scottow.[23]

      Among Joshua Scottows grandchildren (b. ca. 1670-1698), the first daughter in these English-oriented, upper-class families was without exception named after her mother.[24]

      Desire Walker, as a grandniece of Sarah (Scottow) Walker, would thus appear to have been the first-born daughter of Isaac and DESIRE (SHELLEY) WALKER..

      This Desire (Walker) Freeman d. Metuchen, NJ, 22 Dec 1779 in 74th yr.,[25] thus setting her birth ca. 1706.
