An American Family History

The Walton, Hunn, Kitchen & Grafton Families

Ancestors of Mary Walton Yerkes

Mary Walton Yerkes was born about 1720 in the Manor of Moreland. Her grandfather, Thomas Walton and his brothers came from England to Pennsylvania where they joined the Byberry Friends Meeting. At the time of the Kethian split, only Nathaniel remained with the Byberry Meeting. Many of the members left the meeting and some became members of the Pennepek Baptist Church where the Reverend John Watts was pastor.

Her great grandparents, the Kitchens, were Quakers who were persecuted for their beliefs in early Massachusetts.

He was not a descendant of George Hunn, the immigrant.
