Walker P. Fomby, is actively engaged in conducting his extensive plantation and
in managing his saw-mill and cotton-gin in Ward 6 of Claiborne Parish. His birth
occurred in Troup County, Ga., in 1845, to Richard and Anis (Lee) Fomby, who were
born in Wilkes County Ga., in 1802, and Virginia, respectively, becoming the
parents of the following children: Frances (wife of P. A. Awbrey, of this parish),
Henry (who died since the war, from a wound received while in the service), Mary
(wife of Joe Boyd, of Hope, Ark.), Clement (wife of Bart Jeans, of Ark.), Amanda C.
(widow of Sam Clark, a resident of Atlanta, Ga.), Carrie (wife of C. Baker, of
Randolph County, Ark.), Rowena (widow of Samuel Kite, of Indian Territory), Charles
M. (a merchant of Magnolia, Ark.), Walker P., and Lou (who was the wife of Winston
Wood, of Atlanta, Gas., and is now deceased, leaving at the time of her death two
children: Carrie and Lou). The paternal grandfather, Thomas Fomby, was born in
Virginia, and traced his ancestry back to England. The maternal grandfather, Noah
Lee, was also born in Virginia, was active in the Revolutionary War, and traced his
ancestry back to the same source as Gen. Robert E. Lee. Walker P. Fomby reached man's
estate and received a common-school education in Georgia. In 1863 he enlisted in
Company A, Ninth Louisiana Infantry, and while participating in the battle of Gettysburg
he was captured, and after being held a prisoner four months was exchanged, after which
he joined the army at the battle of the Wilderness, in 1864. He removed to Arkansas in
1865, and tow years later was married to Miss Georgia Knox, of Claiborne Parish. Mr. Fomby
began life for himself as a planter, and is now the owner of about 1,000 acres of land, 700
of which is under cultivation. He and his wife are the parents of eight children, as follows:
Walter, Eddie, Effie, Henry, John L., Richard, Madge and Valentine. The family attend the
Methodist Episcopal Church, and politically Mr. Fomby is a Democrat.
