    The 'Walker Homestead'
    The "Walker Homestead"
    Marge Kimble calls the house in the photograph the "Walker Homestead." It was the home of Charles Pearsey Walker in the 19th century, built in 1903 by Samuel Dotson (1858-1931). It was later the home of Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker when Charles moved to a smaller home on his property.

    Several of the people in the photograph can be positively identified, and several others inspire some educated guessing.

    The woman on the left, with the horse, by all rights should probably be Hattie Mae "Harriet" (Moyers) Walker. But she doesn't look anything like the other photographs of Hattie. At the moment she is an intriguing mystery. The man second from the left is Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker.

    The woman sitting in the chair is Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell. I believe some of the four children are probably hers, and it would seem likely the man sitting with the youngest child is likely her husband, Eli Frizzell. By 1906, which is the date that was written on the back of the photograph, Vernie and Eli six children. Sam and Hattie Walker had seven.

    The couple on the right in the back do not seem to match in any sense faces of people who are already identified.

    General Newsprint Marion News
    A short report that the families of Samuel Clinton Walker and William David Walker were attending a family reunion in Ottumwa, Iowa; Also that Jerry Dean Walker was leaving town to attend Southern Methodist University.

    The reunion in Ottumwa, Iowa, puzzled me until I spoke to Marge Kimble regarding it. She replied that there were frequent reunions held in Ottumwa because the extended families of the Frizzells (mostly around Osceola and Woodbine, Iowa) and of Sam and Reil Walker (around Morning Sun and Wapello, Iowa) determined it was about a half-way point between the two regions of Iowa, saving traveling time that would be required if they were held in either of the actual locations. She also reckons that this reunion in 1955 was likely about the last one the two sets of family held in Ottumwa.

    I imagine a number of photographs of family reunions that are posted here probably were taken in Ottumwa. (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)
