    James G. 'Jim' and Mildred Jane 'Millie' (Beauchamp/Feldman) Walker
    James G. "Jim" and Mildred Jane "Millie" (Beauchamp/Feldman) Walker
    Jim Walker was the youngest child of Charles Pearsey Walker and Ruth Ellen Fox to reach maturity. Jim was born in 1887 in Morning Sun, Iowa. He was in the service during World War I. In 1920 he married Millie Feldman, who was born Mildred Jane Beauchamp. It is assumed this photograph was taken to celebrate their marriage at that time. Millie had a previous marriage to Edward Feldman, and three sons from that relationship. Jim and Millie were later divorced.

    The Children of Charles Pearsey Walker and Their Cousin, Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker
    This is a reunion of some of the children of Charles Pearsey Walker and their spouses, and additionally the family of Charles P. Walker's grandnephew, Frank Walker.

    Within this group of people, Millie was Jim (James G.) Walker's wife, Hazel was Frank Walker's wife. John Russell was Flossie's husband and Jennie Reil Hannah was Samuel Nathaniel Walker's wife. Sam, Everna (Frizzell), Flossie (Russell), Lee (Charles Leander), and Jim were Walker siblings. Frank Walker's father, Charles F. Walker, who was Francis Samuel and Catherine Pearsey Walker's nephew, was raised by Francis S. and Catherine because his own mother Olive died when he was only two weeks old. Therefore, the Frank Walker in this photograph was part of the immediate family even though he was a "first cousin once removed," and not technically another sibling.

    In the very back: Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker. The two front rows, left to right: Thomas "Tom" Walker, James G. "Jim" Walker, Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker, Mildred Jane "Millie" (Beauchamp/Feldman) Walker, Jennie "Reil" (Hannah) Walker, Charles Leander "Lee" Walker, Aleta Marie (Hewitt) Walker, Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell, Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker, John Franklin Russell, and Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell.

    Mildred Jane "Millie" (Beauchamp/Feldman) Walker
    Millie Walker was a daughter of Ura Ulysses Beauchamp and Susan Matilda Metzger. She married Edward Feldman between 1908/09, and they had a son, Harry. She later married James G. "Jim" Walker, the son of Charles Pearsey and Ruth Ellen (Fox) Walker. She and Jim had no children and eventually divorced.
    A Family Reunion: Probably Between 1940-1945
    A Family Reunion: Probably Between 1940-1945
    The people who can be identified in this photograph the children of Charles Pearsey Walker - Everna Frizzell, Sam, Tom, and Jim Walker, and Flossie Russell. The three unknown men in positions 2, 8, and 11 appear almost to be brothers; they seem to have a strong family resemblance. Judging from their ages relative to the Walkers (almost contemporary it would appear), they seem unlikely to be the spouses and/or children of Everna and Eli Frizzell. It is possible some of the older unknown people might be Edgars. There are no Frizzells who fit the bill (see the one possible exception below).

    Left to right: unknown child, unknown man, Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker, Thomas "Tom" Walker, Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell, Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell, unknown woman with sunglasses, unknown man, unknown woman in front, Mildred Jane "Millie" (Beauchamp/Feldman) Walker*, unknown man, James G. "Jim" Walker.

    *The woman identified as Millie Walker also bears a resemblance to Talma (Frizzell) Lyon, the daughter of Vernie Frizzill.
