A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Family
A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Family
On December 3, 1862, Charles wrote his family from the mouth of the White River in Arkansas. He mentioned that "Uncle Sam" was getting very much in debt and not paying the army, how much he would like some apples to eat, and that he didn't blame the family for not writing more often, as he knew they were busy (likely a hint). He also sent a photograph of Captain Watters, which he asked his nephew, Charles Francis Walker, to keep until he returned from the war.

A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Father, Francis Samuel 'Sam' Walker
A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Father, Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker
Charles wrote to his father September 6, 1862, while stationed in Davenport, Iowa, waiting for his regiment to leave and go to war. In this letter he requests some spare money, if his father has any, so he might return to see his father and family near New London, Iowa. Charles deserted the army soon thereafter, and reenlisted, because this upset his father, in the Iowa 34th using his mother's maiden name as his surname (i.e. his middle name), as "Charles Pearsey."

A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Friends During the Siege of Vicksburg
A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Friends During the Siege of Vicksburg
Charles wrote a letter to his "friends," (presumably family since the document was in family hands) from the Siege of Vicksburg, which occurred throughout May and June of 1863. He reported the Union troops had "surrounded the rebels" and were starving them out, food was scarce, dead mules were seen constantly floating down the river, and, judging from the tone of the letter, he was definitely concerned about his own safety. This letter was written in June of 1863, and a later paragraph in it was dated Monday June 15 (which was in 1863). Charles had been in Pilot Knob, Missouri, as recently as May 22, when he wrote another letter home. Parts of this letter are missing. The third page was not scanned and what remains of it that can be read is:

"[...] how you are [...] and when ? [...] and what Lee is doing [...] present but remain as ever tour son and brother Lo(?) Charles P. Walker.

Monday 15th - we have moved nearer to the enemy. I got a letter from Wm and Leander today they was well then. I am going to write to them as soon as possible no more at present. Charles P Walker"

On the back of this letter someone wrote: "Written by C. P. Walker at the siege of Vicksburg, Miss. 1864. Company D 31st Ia. Inf." However, the siege was in 1863 and he was in the 34th Regiment. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: This document is provided in pdf format, except for the third page text above.)

A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Sisters
A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Sisters
The final letter from the Civil War that remains in the family archives from Charles Pearsey Walker was written to his sisters September 4, 1863. He was near Carrollton in Orleans Parish, Louisiana. The family had sent him some wedding cake, but it had not fared well sitting at the post office. A family horse, apparently, had contracted tuberculosis. He encouraged his niece, Mary Catharine Brewer, to learn to write, and promised her a pony upon his return. Ulysses S. Grant was going to be there to review the troops, which had apparently become a commonplace occurrence. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Sisters and Niece, Mary Catharine Brewer
A Letter From Charles Pearsey Walker to His Sisters and Niece, Mary Catharine Brewer
Charles wrote this letter on May 22, 1863, from Pilot Knob, Missouri, to his sisters and niece. All of his sisters at that time were presumably living at the family farm in Baltimore Township, Henry County, Iowa (Vashti Annie (Walker) Brewer, Lovinia ("Lou") Church, Ann Clarinda, and Margaretta Catharine Walker). He mentions an unknown wedding that will take place, which he cannot attend, also that he sent money home, so he had apparently been paid (another letter dated December 1862 mentioned Uncle Sam was in arrears paying the troops). Apparently he was having some troubles with one of his commanding officers. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From Francis Samuel 'Sam' Walker to the Family of Charles Pearsey and Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker
A Letter From Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker to the Family of Charles Pearsey and Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker
This letter, written by F. S. Walker to the family of Charles Pearsey Walker, either as they were moving to Texas from Iowa or probably after they had arrived there from Iowa discusses the farm. He mentioned Charles Francis Walker, his grandson, who had remained in Iowa and probably was a big help on the farm. Sam then addresses his grandson, Samuel Nathaniel Walker in the letter, and gives an account of the Walker family and their history, coming from Ireland to Pennsylvania and then to Knoxville, Tennessee. This is particularly useful as he discusses his grandparents' family, and the information matches and extends the information which family historian, Marge Kimble, received in a letter from The Perry Historians (Perry County, Pennsylvania) in 1987. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From James Walker (1800-1863) to Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker and His Family
This letter, dated August 12, 1856, was provided by Marjorie Kimble. It was not in good enough condition for scanning. It was written in Hammondsburg, Iowa, and sent to Francis and his family either in New London, Iowa, or else in Milton, Indiana. They moved to Iowa sometime in about 1856. Apparently they chose to remain in southeast Iowa rather than head to south central Iowa, where James lived. (This document is in .pdf format.)

This letter, written April 6, 1875, was sent by Kitturah Fox from New London, Iowa, to her daughter, Elizabeth Sampson, in Cass County Nebraska. Kitturah is concerned that she hasn't heard from Elizabeth, she mentions a lot of disease of friends and family members, and she mentions that she is going to send some jars of fruit, but doesn't trust the freight system of the day to get them there.

A Letter From Kitturah (McFarland) Fox to Her Daughter, Elizabeth McFarland (Fox) Sampson (3 of 3)
This letter, written August 16 (17th & 18th), 1876, was sent by Kitturah Fox from New London, Iowa, to her daughter, Elizabeth Sampson, in Cass County Nebraska. She spoke of people with tuberculosis, including her daughter, Ruth Walker, also her grandson, Albert Walker, who would not live long but was healthy at this point. The crops were failing that summer, and she didn't expect much from the harvest. She added a post script to her granddaughter, Elizabeth's daughter, Kitturah Sampson. Kitturah Fox would die about five months after writing this letter. (This document, kindly provided by Jodie Streit, is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From L 'John' Wesley Hardin to His Uncle and Aunt, Francis Samuel 'Sam' and Catherine B. (Pearsey) Walker
A Letter From L "John" Wesley Hardin to His Uncle and Aunt, Francis Samuel "Sam" and Catherine B. (Pearsey) Walker
John Hardin wrote Sam and Catherine Walker from the Benton Barracks in St. Louis, Missouri, on March 1, 1863. The letter mostly contained references to being stationed there and that some of the officers in the army apparently hoped to stretch the war out for as long as possible to earn more money. He also mentioned visiting with a cousin, James W. Leas Apparently this letter was written before his injury or capture by the Confederates. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From L. 'John' Wesley Hardin Letter to Leander Walker
A Letter From L. "John" Wesley Hardin Letter to Leander Walker
This letter was written during the Civil War by John Hardin, stationed at Benton Barracks in St. Louis, Missouri, to his cousin Leander Walker in Milton, Indiana. Although it was dated January 6, 1861, he was not mustered into the army until July 31, 1861, so likely he wrote the date incorrectly (the letter was written at the start of the new year, when it is easy to "forget" the date has changed).

Later, John was wounded at Arkadelphia, Arkansas, blinded in his left eye, and taken prisoner by the Confederate Army. He survived the war, and during his veteran years the local GAR post in New London, Iowa, was named after him. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From Leander Walker to His Father, Francis Samuel 'Sam' Walker
A Letter From Leander Walker to His Father, Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker
In about 1856 Sam and Catherine B. (Pearsey) Walker moved the family from Milton, Indiana, to the vicinity of New London, Iowa, where several of Sam's siblings had settled. Leander, their oldest son who was about 20 years old at the time, apparently found his childhood home more to his liking, and he returned to Indiana probably about the time this letter was written October 8, 1861, he speaks of "his" crops he wanted his father to sell for him, which indicates that he had been in Iowa during the summer growing season. Much of this letter is a report on friends and relatives, with mention made of the Civil War, which had begun early in the year in April. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From Sarah (Lane) Walker to Her Brother-in-Law's Family, that of Francis Samuel "Sam" and Catherine B. (Pearsey) Walker
Sarah Walker was the wife of George W. Walker, who was a brother of Francis S. Walker. George and Sarah lived in Boone and Clinton counties in Indiana before they migrated to Gentryville, Missouri, in 1854. This letter, written October 25, 1862, was about three months after the death of George and Sarah's son, George Washington Walker, who was killed during the Civil War fighting in a battle July 2, 1862, at Corinth, Mississippi. Sarah is overcome with grief, and very afraid for the safety of her other sons who have also gone to war. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble.

A Letter From the Illinois Central Railroad to Samuel Nathaniel 'Sam' Walker
A Letter From the Illinois Central Railroad to Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker
On July 30, 1899, a bureaucrat named Howard (last name is illegible, perhaps intentionally) in the Chief Engineer's Office at the Illinois Central Railroad in Chicago replied to Sam Walker regarding a theft of mail at a post office. He assured Sam that the robbery was probably simply a prank by "half-witted" men. (The scan of this letter was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble.)

A Letter From The Perry Historians to Marjorie Naomi 'Marge' (Walker) Kimble
A Letter From The Perry Historians to Marjorie Naomi "Marge" (Walker) Kimble
Soon after Marge Kimble began researching our Walker family roots (which is my maternal family tree), she wrote to The Perry Historians in Newport, Pennsylvania, with what sketchy family information she had about our ancestors at the time. They answered with the names of our first Walker ancestors to live in the United States, and gave information about some early marriages in the 18th century in Pennsylvania. (See also the Perry Hisotrians Worksheet.)

A Page from the Collected Clippings of Jennie "Reil" (Hannah) Walker
Many of the obituaries and other notices that seeded this project, on the maternal side of my family, were saved by Jennie "Reil" (Hannah) Walker, my step-grandmother, pasted over the page of an unwanted book, and passed down to her daughter, Marge Kimble. This is an example of the organization of the clippings that Reil accomplished. The obituaries of Mary Dotson and Jessie Moyers on this page were both deaths that occurred only about a month before Reil died.
