"Buddy" Walker
This young boy was identified as "Buddy" Walker, and is with his parents, Charles "Cecil" and Rosa Ellen (Locke) Walker in a family photograph provided by Marge Kimble. It was dated 1946. He is evidently Charles Walker, their son. If so, as of 1991, he was a resident of Denver, Colorado.

"Pontoons"? (Dennis William Brumm)
Someone once said my feet were shaped like pontoons. They were, and are, awfully large, but as I age and watch lots of young people grow taller and larger than I, at least here in California, I feel a little more like I'm part of the mainstream nowadays. This photograph seems to have been taken about in 8th grade, especially judging from the school photograph of that year. Possibly it was for 8th grade graduation, as I can't remember many reasons I had to dress up at all in that time period, though another possibility may have been a piano recital. My feet grew to size 13 AAA's by 7th grade, but then stopped, thankfully. My height kept going. I think I was 5'10" or so in 8th grade, I sort of grew tall even as a kid, not having the spurt lots of boys do in high school. Today I have shrunk from my 6'4" size I reached as a kid to about 6'3", but according to Chinese shoemakers, my feet grew to size 14. I don't think they're longer, but they aren't AAA width anymore. The Clorox bottle pig sitting on the floor of this picture was a creation of my mom's. I think the fad ran through a lot of the family about this time. I thought they were weird.

'Reese Villa,' The Laura Reese Residence
"Reese Villa," The Laura Reese Residence

My father, William Lett "Bill" Brumm, purchased the house from Anna L. and John Gordon Reese in 1952. The photograph is from a photocopy provided by my cousin, Doris Idella Walker.

'The Drive' Iowa State Hospital, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
"The Drive" Iowa State Hospital, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
This postcard features the grounds near what was the state insane asylum in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. It was, I believe, intentionally laid back from the main road in a peaceful setting. As a junior in high school (1968 or 1969) my Sociology class at high school toured the facility, as well as the prison in Fort Madison, Iowa, and at that time I could offer the assessment that neither were joyous or even bearable institutions.

1850 Mortality Schedule. Henry County, Iowa
Those listed included Cyntha E. Tryer, and William S. Lee (possibly a previoulsy unknown son of Jeremiah Lee and Sally Hale).

The sheet had these glowing remarks regarding Henry County, Iowa: 'Remarks: "There has been no particular disease generally prevailing; health good as usual - water pure and good, impregnated with lim (usually called "Limestone water" or "hard water."

1912 Walker Family Photos: Charles Pearsey Walker's Second Home Near Newport
1912 Walker Family Photos: Charles Pearsey Walker's Second Home Near Newport
When Sam Walker moved into his father's farm home, Charles P. Walker moved to a second house that was on the property. He lived there with his second wife, Sarah Ann "Sally" (Houseman/Edgar) Walker. In this photograph Sam, his wife and three children are visiting Charles and Sally. It was probably taken the same day as the photograph of the Moyers and Walkers who were in a canoe on a pond at the farm.

Left to right: Hattie Mae (Moyers) Walker, holding Hattie "Leota" Walker, Zella "Myrtle" Walker, Charles Pearsey Walker (standing, porting a beard which is seen in other photographs of this time), Sarah, known as "Aunt Sallie" Walker, sitting in her chair, and father Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker holding the hands of his two youngest sons at the time, Paul Moyers Walker, and Samuel Clinton "Sam" Walker (it is unclear which might be which). Marge Kimble kindly provided this photograph.

1912 Walker Family Photos: In the Back Yard of Charles Pearsey Walker's Home Near Newport
1912 Walker Family Photos: In the Back Yard of Charles Pearsey Walker's Home Near Newport
One of a series of photographs apparently all taken the same summer day in 1912, this includes several family members who can be almost certainly identified and children who can be surmised. This photograph is from the back yard of the home where Charles Pearsey Walker and wife Sarah lived.

Standing, left to right in this photograph are: John Franklin Russell, Elsie Ella Walker, Maude Mae Walker, Hattie Mae "Harriett" Walker holding Hattie "Leota," and Flossie Zella Russell. Kneeling on the ground is Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker, holding a son who is probably Samuel Clinton "Sam" Walker (age two at the time, and known as "Sammie" when he was young).

1912 Walker Family Photos: Sammie, Myrtle, and Leota Walker
1912 Walker Family Photos: Sammie, Myrtle, and Leota Walker
This photograph from late spring or early summer 1912 is of three Walker children. Sammie (Samuel Clinton "Sam" Walker) is the little boy on the left. Myrtle (Zella "Myrtle" Walker) is seated on the chair, barefoot, so it must not have been too chilly of a day. The baby is my mother, Leota Walker (Hattie "Leota"). She had been born in March.

I have a feeling the series of summer 1912 photographs that have surfaced may have been taken on the occasion of Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker's 43rd birthday celebration in July.

1912 Walker Family Photos: The Summer Canoe on the Pond
1912 Walker Family Photos: The Summer Canoe on the Pond
This is a photograph (photo postcard style) I have inherited. My cousin, Virginia Golliher, has the same image and the people in the canoe are identified on hers. Her mother, Myrtle, and my mother, Leota, were both in the picture.

The older woman on the left is Rebecca Ellen (Pence) Moyers. The girl in front of her is Zella "Myrtle" Walker. George Washington Earl Moyers is rowing the canoe. On the right are Hattie Mae "Harriett" (Moyers) Walker, and she is holding the baby (my mother), Hattie "Leota" Walker. My mother was born in March 1912, so this photograph was taken in that summer. Myrtle was 7 or else 8, depending upon the date of the picture.
