Thomas Walker was born in Shoals, Indiana, September 18th, 1857, and died at his home in Whitley Bottom, August 27th, 1925, death resulting from a complication of diseases.
Mr. Walker was married in 1899 to Isabel Crane(sb Cramer). Of this union four children were born, Mrs. Verla White, Audrey Walker, Vernon and Melvin Walker. Of these all save one survive their father and were with him at the time of his death. Vernon preceded Mr. Walker in death about thirteen years.
The Walker family came to Payette about nineteen years ago, where Mr. Walker engaged in the sheep and lumber business, having a large interest on Squaw and Crane creeks.
For the past four years the family has lived at Whitley Bottom, where Mr. Walker was engaged in farming. It is just one year and three days since Mr. Walker's brother, John Walker, passed away.
Tom Walker, it may be said, was a good and tender husband and father and a loyal citizen. His death is an irreparable loss to his widow and children. To them our deepest sympathy goes out.
Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Vernon E. Hall on Saturday afternoon and interment was made in Riverside Cemetery.(The Payette Independent, Thursday, September 03, 1925)
