Rebecca Walker (Pigg River) Pittsylvania Cnty, VA

I've reached a brick wall in finding Rebecca (Rebecka) Walker prior to 1920. I found her in the Pigg River area (Sycamore VA) in 1930 with children (Effie, Tracy L, James A, Elnora, Viola, Lorene?, Frank A, Walker). The 1930 Pigg River census states that she owned the home.

I was also able to find her in Adkin WV in 1920 with the older children (Effie, Tracy L and James A) and a husband (J. J. Walker or J. R. Walker from North Carolina). The husband was not listed on the 1930 VA census, but her status was still listed as married in 1930. And her name was spelled Rebecka on the 1920/WV census, but the children's names and ages are consistent. J.F (or J.R.) Walker was listed as a coal miner.

- DOB for Rebecca is Appx. 1899 (born in VA, parents born in VA)
- DOB for J. F. Walker is Appx. 1880 (born in NC, parents born in NC)

I've reached a dead end as I don't have her maiden name and family oral history states that she was married several times (but I believe the 'other' marriages were after 1930). Any tips or thoughts on how to proceed?

Thanks for any assistance provided.
