Isaac Walker
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 1, 1803
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 27, 1880

In 1842, Isaac Walker joined his friend, Hervey Lightner, in Peoria, Illinois, founding a hardware company. He later added a retail store in Oak Park, Illinois, where his daughter lived.

The Walkers were brought up as Quakers but became devout members of Second Presbyterian Church in Peoria. The First Presbyterian (now Calvary) Church in Oak Park, near his hardware store, was a virtual twin of this building.

Son of James Walker and Ann Cain (I haven't found memorials for them.)
