George Walton 1796-1874

Because of Genes Reunited I have made contact with a line of relatives from my Great Great Grandfather.

George Walton was born in 1796 and joined "The Rifles" in 1813 and he wrote a journal of his life in the army including the battle of Waterloo.

Because of GR, I went to St Pauls Cathedral for the memorial service for all who fought at Waterloo.

Because of GR I have discovered relatives around the world and we have subsequently published his diary.
