Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker1869 - 1957
Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker
Samuel Nathaniel Walker ("Sam") was my grandfather. I was born in 1952, he in 1869, so a lot of time and change in our culture separated us. I remember him only as the distant memory of a young child. Sam was the oldest child of Charles Pearsey Walker and Ruth Ellen Fox. He was born July 24, 1869, in Henry County, Iowa, died March 16, 1957, in Morning Sun, Iowa. from about 1883/85 he and his family moved to Texas and lived there, returning to Iowa when they determined the weather in Texas would not help with the consumption (tuberculosis) that his mother suffered. Sam first married Hattie Mae "Harriett" Moyers, one of ten children born to George Washington Earl Moyers and Rebecca Ellen Pence. Sam and Hattie had eleven children. My mother, Hattie "Leota" Walker, was the ninth of eleven. Harriett died not long after the birth of my uncle, William David Walker. Sam then remarried to Jennie "Reil" Hannah, the daughter of John and Viola S. (Courter) Hannah. Sam and Reil had five children. My grandfather (1869-1957), grandmother (1876-1918), and Reil (1892-1958) are all buried at the Elmwood cemetery near Morning Sun.
