||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.

Seated is "Aunt Sallie," (Sarah Ann "Sally" (Houseman/Edgar) Walker), the step-mother-in-law of Harriett, the second wife of Charles Pearsey Walker. The little girl in the front was my mother, Leota (Hattie "Leota"), another daughter of Hattie Mae (Moyers) Walker.

||A Map of the Area With the "Walker Homestead" in Louisa County, Iowa|
The "Walker Homestead" refers to the home built by Samuel Dotson (1858-1931) for Charles Pearsey Walker and his second wife, Sarah Ann (Houseman/Edgar) Walker, finished in 1903. The small village of Newport is a few miles southeast of where the home was. Samuel Nathaniel Walker and his families lived there as well until the 1930s. The house was torn down, probably in the 1960s or at the latest in the 1970s.
