Birth: Mar. 17, 1804
South Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Dallas County
Texas, USA

He apparently was a well known Indian fighter. There are numerous narratives concerning him and his willingness to serve when he was needed. A very good friend of his was Allison Nelson who had been mayor of Atlanta, Georgia but he resigned when the city council reduced two fines that he had given to two men involved in a brawl. He spent some time in Kansas but later moved to a rural area near Meridian, Bosque County, Texas. He later became dear friends and neighbor with the above Dixon Walker.

Dixon (his initials are D H) apparently answered the bell one last time. Nelson was a Colonel in the Confederate Army and soon thereafter was promoted to General Nelson. I have guessed that Walker was on the way to join up with Nelson at was then and is now known as Camp Nelson. However; sickness was the great killer in the camps then and the losses from what was sometimes call camp fever was greater than battle losses. I have surmised that Walker got sick and died at Lancaster, Texas.
