My grandfather came from Georgia and my research took me to North Carolina.Also found information regarding migration from Virginia and South Carolina maybe early 1700's.Possibe chance that North Carolina Walters might have been FREED BLACKS who were slave owners.Article stated that a large population of freed blacks(mullatto) slave owners.Other surnames come into question also that also moved from NC to Georgia.
William Walters is my father dad
My last name is said to originate in Wales as well. It came to the Cayman Islands in the 1600s, where most of the locals have the derived surname "Watler". "Caymanian folklore explains that the island's first inhabitants were a Welshman named Walters (or Watler) and his companion named Bawden (or Bodden), who first arrived in Cayman in 1658 after serving in Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica. The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1700. He was the grandson of the original settler named Bodden." - Wikipedia History of the Cayman Islands

Its nice to Know where I come From. So This is where I get my Very Bad Temper. , Its a combination of Anglo- Saxon and Cherokee Indian And Creek Indian blood running threw me. My GrandFather and Dad all lived in Tallapoosa County Alabama.
My late aunt mapped our geneology back to Scotland, where Walters was a sept of the Buchanan clan. I do believe, as Dave mentioned, that there were some marriages between members of the Forbes and Buchanan clans.

My last name is also of the region around Wales. But have also found it in other places like Germany,Netherlands,and Scotland.My Grandfather died in clearwater,fl. when i was very young and i don't think my father ever asked the question about his family history.but he is gone too so i do have alot of questions????????????
My father is originally from Australia, he is adopted and received the last name Walters, he then traveled to America and met my mother. I think it's amazing how well the last name has spread.
