William Walker and his second wife Malcenia Poindexter
Mary Elizabeth Claiborne was born on 11 May 1827 to Ephraim and Polly Claybourn in Tennessee, probably in Wilson County since her family is listed there in the 1830 census. She married on 14 December 1849 to William Lafayette Walker (c. 1826-1898). Mary died in about 1857 in Jefferson County, Illinois. The location of her grave is unknown, but due to many of her relatives being buried at Jordan Chapel Cemetery, it is possible she is buried there as well.

William married (2nd) to Malcenia Poindexter (c. 1834 - c. 1864) on 8 August 1858 in Jefferson County. The family is listed there in the 1860 census. He married (3rd) to Margaret Jane Stephenson (1836-1919) on 11 October 1866 in Franklin County, Illinois. The family moved to Reynolds County, Missouri, in about 1868 where they are listed in the 1870 census. In the 1880 census the family is listed in Carter County, Missouri.
