Born in Jackson Parish, July 13, 1860, Mr. Walker was married to Frances M. Stovall, January 15, 1885, and to this union five children were born, three of whom survive. They are W. G.

Mr. Walker was a pioneer citizen and landowner of the Stovall Post Office community in the northeastern part of Winn parish, where he settled in 1886. He moved to Dodson in 1906 to take advantage of the schools. Having engaged in farming, he retired from all active pursuits about 15 years ago. His health was good until three years ago and he was hospitalized two months prior to his death.
He was possessed of a kind and sunny disposition and leaves a host of friends among the young and old alike.
