ANNE WALKER PELTON
She is believed by some to have been the sister of Edwin L. Irish (children of Levi Irish and Lydia Calderwood Irish)
She was born November 8, 1863, in Marietta, Ohio.(see newspaper articles below)
Records indicate Anne Irish (Sister of Edwin L. Irish) was born about 1851 (12 years prior to the birth date given for Anne Pelton.)
Also... Her name is given as Anne WALKER Weder, which would logically indicate Walker was her maiden name - not Irish.

Bible Records also indicate the birth of 2 sets of twin daughters:
Eva M. Pelton and Florance H. Pelton (1st child in each set) lived. It is assumed the 2nd child in each set died either at birth or as infants.
