    The Obituary of Margaret Emma "Maggie" (Drewer) Walker
    Maggie Drewer was born to Henry J. Drewer and Elizabeth "Betty" Robinson November 10, 1871, in New London, Iowa. She married fellow New London native, Frank Elijah Walker (1868-1932) February 12, 1890, in New London, Iowa. They apparently had nine children (if the 1910 federal census can be believed, that she had had 8 by that time). Known children were: James "Ellis" Walker, Laura Franklin Bozart, Karl Newton Walker, Dr. Glenn L. Walker, and Helen Marie Wellington. Three other children may have died in infancy or very early childhood between 1900-1910. Maggie died March 28, 1947, at Burlington Hospital in Burlington, Iowa, and was buried at the Burge Cemetery near New London.
