    Earl Leander Walker
    Earl Leander Walker
    Earl Walker married Alice France Kissinger, the daughter of Henry and Martha Ellen "Mattie" (Huffman) Kissinger. Their daughter was Ina Mae Lowe. Earl was born July 15, 1896, in Newport, Iowa, and died February 4, 1993, in Crawfordsville, Iowa. His parents were Charles Francis and Jessie Deborah (Vaughn) Walker. His grandparents were Leander Walker and Olive P. (Walker) Walker. Charles Francis, Earl's father, was raised by his grandfather, Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker, and apparently also by Charles Pearsey Walker's family.
    A Group of Men at Frank Walker's Farm
    A Group of Men at Frank Walker's Farm
    The farm of Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker was on the Iowa River. This photograph has been identified as having been taken at his farm. Frank was the son of Charles Francis Walker and Jessie Deborah Vaughn. Marvin Walker, Frank's son, has helped identify some of the people in the photo. Some were also identified by Marge (Walker) Kimble. The photograph is estimated to have been taken between 1938/43.

    The two children in the back are unidentified. Otherwise, in the back row, left to right: Dale H. Walker, Unknown (possibly Carl Vaughn Walker or Byron Ernst), Earl Leander Walker, Unknown. Front row left to right: Charles Leander "Lee" Walker, Frank Walker, Charles "Cecil" Walker, John Franklin Russell. On the far right sitting on the grass is Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell

    It seems likely the man second from the left in the back row would be Carl Vaughn Walker (Frank and Earl's brother) or Byron Ernst (John and Flossie's foster child and the husband of Clara Walker Ernst who was Frank and Earl Walker's sister); he also somewhat resembles George Percy Walker. The children playing in the background shadows could be Frank's two younger sons, Marvin and Dean Walker, but it is just too dark to tell whether or not that is the case. This photo was most likely taken after the start of World War II, although it is possible Cecil was in the service before the outbreak of that conflict and I based the earlier 1938 date upon how old Dale Walker seems to me.
