Birth: Nov. 7, 1821
Death: Jul. 9, 1894

Geneva newspaper, July 11, 1894
"As we go to press we learn of the sudden death of Grandma Walker at Courtland, Kansas. She had been visiting a son in Kansas for several months and a few weeks ago returned to Geneva to look after some property interests here. A few days ago she took the train, expecting to meet her husband there, but was stricken with paralysis when near Courtland and compelled to stop here. Her son-in-law Wm Hannes, took the first train to Courtland, and seeing that her condition was serious, telegraphed to her husband and other members of the family to come at once. She died shortly after their arrival. The remains were brought to Geneva and will be interred in the Chelsea cemetery where her father and mother are buried. The family are among the first settlers in the county and a host of friends will sympathize with them in their bereavement.
The saying 'who has not lost a friend' was never more true than in the death of Mrs. Geo Walker of Geneva. In the early days of Madison Township Uncle George and Aunt Jane, as they were familiarly known, were always a friend to the poor."
