    The Children of Charles Pearsey Walker and Their Cousin, Francis Isaac 'Frank' Walker
    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.
    A Family Reunion, Probably Between 1950/53 (1 of 3)
    A Family Reunion, Probably Between 1950/53 (1 of 3)
    This reunion was evidently in the autumn or spring, as evidenced by the coats everyone is wearing. Many of the unknown people in this photograph are probably from the Frizzell family. If so, this reunion was one that was periodically held in Ottumwa, Iowa, considered halfway between the Osceola area where they lived and the Morning Sun area where many of the Walker family lived. If before 1951, the woman between Flossie Russell and Sam Walker was probably their sister, Everna Frizzell (the #9 person). Other photographs of her wearing a similar hat (that obscures her face, unfortunately) do exist.

    A second photograph, nearly identical to this one, exists as well and is posted on this site. Additionally a third photograph, side view, of women at the reunion, exists and is posted.

    Known family members included in this photograph include: Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker (1896-1975), Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell (1884-1968), George Percy Walker (1896-1985), William David "Bill" Walker (1918-1977), Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker (1869-1957), Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner (1897-1970), Margaret Leora (Lesher) Walker (1918-2004), Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker (1894-1976), Jennie "Reil" (Hannah Walker) (1892-1958), and Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson (1903-1990).

    A Family Reunion, Probably Between 1950/53 (2 of 3)
    This photograph is nearly identical to another photograph from this reunion, probably it was taken only moments after or before the first one that has been up online for a number of years. Known people are identified on it, please check it for who is who. Many people at this reunion are presently not identified. Lots of them are probably Frizzell family members.

    People who are presently known to be in this photograph include: Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker (1896-1975), Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell (1884-1968), George Percy Walker (1896-1985), William David "Bill" Walker (1918-1977), Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker (1869-1957), Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner (1897-1970), Margaret Leora (Lesher) Walker (1918-2004), Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker (1894-1976), Jennie "Reil" (Hannah Walker) (1892-1958), and Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson (1903-1990).

    This was Hazel Ann Miller's senior class photograph, as published on the 1909 Mediapolis High School graduation class photograph in Mediapolis, Iowa.
    Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker
    Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker
    Hazel Walker, born August 26, 1896, in Mediapolis, Iowa, was a daughter of Joseph William "Joe" and Flora Malissa (Piper) Miller. She was the fourth of their nine children. Hazel married Francis Isaac "Frank" Walker January 21, 1920. They had three sons: Dale H., Marvin Dwight, and Dean M. Walker.
    A Family Reunion, Probably Between 1950/53 (3 of 3)
    A Family Reunion, Probably Between 1950/53 (3 of 3)
    This photograph of a reunion that occurred sometime between 1950/53 was taken from a side angle as a group of women at the reunion were posing for another photographer, apparently.

    The women who are presently known to be in this photograph include: Hazel Ann (Miller) Walker (1896-1975), Flossie Zella (Walker) Russell (1884-1968), Margaret Leora (Lesher) Walker (1918-2004), Elizabeth Etta "Betty" (Hatt) Walker (1914-1997), and Jennie "Reil" (Hannah Walker) (1892-1958),

    The older woman wearing the hat is probably Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell (who died April 27, 1951). Many of the other family members are likely her descendants, as I believe this was at an annual or periodic Frizzell/Walker reunion, likely in Ottumwa, Iowa.

    Zella "Myrtle" (Walker) Dotson and Maude Mae (Walker/Umphrey) Fortner were in the other two photographs from this reunion, but are not visible in this one.
