    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).

    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.
