James Stephen Walker
Birth: Dec. 16, 1903
Texas, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1927
Williamson County
Texas, USA

Son of George Barnett Walker and Mary Ann Elizabeth Mathews. James Stephen Walker is buried in the Gatesville City Cemetery in Gatesville, Coryell County, Texas.

One of the ten Baylor University basketball players who lost his life in a single train/bus accident. Together they are known as the Immortal Ten.

It was because of this accident that Texas started constructing over-passes or underpasses at all places where state highways intersected with railroads. Across the United States, communities started requiring school buses to stop at all railroad crossings before proceeding.
