NoteThe following is from the baptism records of the Rev. Hugh Mair, St. Andrew's Church, Fergus:
31 Mar. 1850, Rachael, born 26 Oct. 1849, daughter of James Walker, farmer and Christ'n Vrooman, of Garafraxa.

The 1861 census at Garafraxa Township in Wellington County shows a Richard Walker, age 12, a male, as the eldest child of James and Christina. Since we find Rachel clearly identified as the daughter of James and Christina being married in 1867 and is shown as the correct age to be Rachel as she appears in the 1851 census, we will assume that the 1861 census showing her as Richard is an enumerator's error.
