•On Friday morning, at half past nine o'clock, the soul of Edwin H. Walker took its flight to the land beyond the skies. Although he had been suffering for many months, the devoted wife and children did not despair of his life until very recently when they found that every thing known to medical science had availed him but little and he was growing rapidly worse.
Just a few days before he passed away the loved ones brought him from the Louisville Infirmary to his old home in Paint Lick, and there where he spent so many years of his life he peacefully passed away.
The deceased was the son of John W. and Jane Walker, born January 21, 1843. He was a man of great magnetism and numbered his friends by his acquaintances, and was very influential in the every walk of life. Not only will he be missed in the home but in the community, in the church where so many years he has been an active member and regular attendant.
He was married to Miss Elizabeth Woods October 22, 1863 and to them were born six children, Mary, Mrs. Luther Gibbs, Rice Woods, Jane Miller, Mattie Ogilvie and Ed H., deceased. Besides his devoted wife and loving children he leaves three brothers, W.S., J. Wade and A.K., all of this county, besides a half sister, Mrs. E.M. Denny, of Lexington, to feel keenly the loss of a brother.
A large crowd of relatives and friends attended the funeral service at the Paint Lick church on Saturday morning at eleven o'clock, where words of comfort were spoken by Rev. Frierson. Sweet music and abundant and beautiful floral designs were offered as tokens of love and esteem, then all that was mortal of this devoted husband and father was laid to rest in the Paint Lick cemetery to await the resurrection morn.
