The Walton family came from Pennsylvania to Delaware in 1854, first to Pencader Hundred, then moving to the Carrcroft area near Wilmington. They were active in farming, commerce, policing, and emergency services. William B. Walton married Betty Ann Walker and had a son (William B. Walton Jr.), two grandsons, and a great-granddaughter. The Family Papers series includes a variety of documents from the Walton, Walker, and Huntsman families. Documentation includes a 1906 marriage certificate, a Knights of Pythias medal, copies of canning labels, driver’s licenses (1920-1921), a class list from DuPont High School, motor vehicle registrations (1934), an envelope with a postmark for the last day of operation of the Iron Hill Post Office (1940), membership cards, a P. S. Dupont High School yearbook (1940), and a history of Carrcroft (1959). The Genealogies series consists of the compiled genealogies of both the Walton family (1325-2014) and the Walker family (1800-2008).
