S.B., as he was called be his friends, has suffered very much at different time, for the past several years, and his last illness was one of intense pain until a short time before death relieved him.
Mr. Walker was a pioneer of Chase Co., coming here in the winter of 1885, and brought his family in the spring. As one of the early settlers he endured the privations incident to the building of a new country, a good neighbor, always sociable and very hospitable, ever ready to lend a helping hand to any enterprise that was for the upbuilding of the country in which he lived.
Mr. Walker was raised in the Presbyterian faith becoming a member in early childhood. After coming to NE he helped organize,, and took an active part in Sunday School and church work of the early days here. Owing to the fact that there was no church of his denomination here he did not unite with any, but always stood ready to help them all.
During his illness he expressed a desire to go, saying that he had nothing but suffering ahead if him. When asked if he was ready he said he was. He trusted not in his own righteousness but in the righteousness of Jesus.
His family has a very remarkable record of service for their country. He enlisted as a private in Co. E. 83 Regiment Ohio Infantry Sept. 3, 1864 and was discharged July 24, 1865 at Galveston, TX. On the back of his discharge, over the signature of his Captain he is especially named for his exemplary conduct in the siege of and assault on Blakely, Ala, in April 1865, winning the esteem of his country and the officers of his command.
His oldest son Geo., served under the Stars and Stripes in the Phillippines during the Spanish American War. He served in the Company A. 39th Regiment on Infantry U.S. Volunteers for 22 months taking part in all the important engagements and in the Gorilla fighting which was the characteristic of the land fighting of that war.
His youngest son, Frank, served his country in the World War with Co. B. 355th Infantry. The engagements in which he took part were: The Lucy Sector and the Euvezon Sector which were defensive. St. Mihiel and Meuse Argonne, which were offensive an included all the engagements along the Muese river. He was with the Army of occupation about five and one half months and discharged June 3, 1919.
The death of their G-daughter. Mabel only recently was the first break in their family for thirty-four years.
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to Mrs. Walker, the children and other relatives.
