    The Family of Charles Pearsey and Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker, and Charles Francis Walker
    The Family of Charles Pearsey and Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker, and Charles Francis Walker
    This photograph is the only known photo of Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker and the only photograph (I have) of Charles Francis Walker. It was taken most likely in 1882; no later than 1883. Charles Leander "Lee" Walker, sitting on Charles Pearsey Walker's lap, was born May 1881. Flossie Zella Walker, the next child born to Charles and Ruth, was born in April 1884, when the family was living in Texas for a year (obviously she is not pictured), and Charles F. Walker remained with Francis S. Walker on the family farm when Charles and Ruth and their family were in Texas.

    Despite what the writing on this photo says about Charles F. being an orphan, his father, Leander Walker, Charles Pearsey Walker's brother, was alive and living in Indiana when this photograph was taken. Leander's first wife, Olive née Walker (unrelated), died when Charles Francis was an infant; Leander sent his son to Iowa to be raised by the family. Leander remarried later and had three more sons.

    Identification is as follows: Everna Ida "Vernie" Walker (later Frizzell) is standing on the left, Charles Pearsey Walker is sitting, holding Charles Leander "Lee" Walker on his lap. Charles Francis is standing to their left. Standing alone in front is Thomas "Tom" Walker, then Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker, and standing on the right is Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker. This photograph was provided courtesy of Marge Kimble. It was in Flossie Russell's family archives.
    The Charles Pearsey Walker Family (Original Page)
    The Charles Pearsey Walker Family (Original Page)
    This is a page with the photo of Charles Pearsey Walker's family on it. Apparently Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell wrote the notes on the page, which are: "Parents - Ruth and Charlie Walker. Everna standing by Dad. Charles Leander on lap. Tom along side. Older boys Sam & Charlie Walker, nephew - their father died (sic: mother) so they came to stay with CP and Ruth."

    I theorize this was a family photograph left to relatives about the time when Charles, Ruth, and their children moved to Texas for several years (Charles Francis remained behind, living with Francis S. and Catherine B. (Pearsey) Walker.

    Charles and Vernie were having a visit while she was pregnant. This likely was between 1911-1913.

    This photograph from between about 1915/20 is of the two daughters of Charles Pearsey Walker and Ruth Ellen Fox: Flossie Russell (1884-1968), who lived in Wapello, Iowa, married to John Franklin Russell (1882-1967) and Vernie Frizzell, (1873-1951), who married Elijah C. "Eli" Frizzell (1863-1934). Vernie lived in Clarke County, Iowa.

    My grandaunts, Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell and Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell were enjoying a reunion or visit when this photograph was taken in about 1945. Vernie lived in Clarke County, Iowa, in the south central part of the state, and Flossie in Louisa County, Iowa, a county on the Mississippi River in the eastern part of the state.

    This is a document featuring 65 generations of descendants of Godwulf (born circa AD 80) to Dennis Brumm. Through the Fox family genealogy, much of which was provided by researcher Jodie Streit, plus some research I did backing it out from the royal family of England (to which the Fox family is connected, including Norse legends which can never be proven, this is the furthest back my database goes. It is not posted to be taken as "fact" in the earliest of generations/ (Note: this document is in .pdf format.)
