Walker, James Albert 25 Mar 1872 - 14 Oct 1934 CCR 25 Oct 1934 p2

[Note: Son of Archibald D. & Elizabeth (Gardner) Walker; married Nellie M. Devereaux 24 Dec 1873 - 15 Sep 1966]

J. Albert Walker, the eighth child and seventh son of A.D. Walker and Elizabeth Gardner was born on March 25, 1872 near what is now Linden. He spent his boyhood and youth in that vicinity. On May 7, 1893 he was united in marriage to Nellie Devereaux, who survives. He united with the Ozark Christian church in1901, later moving his membership to the church at Nixa. Albert Walker served Christian county as treasurer for two terms, from 1905 to 1908. After learning the office of county treasurer, he was with the bank at Battlefield for nine years and then served the Bank of Nixa for nine years. About ten years ago he retired from active business life because of ill health. Although a patient suffered for a long time he became bedfast only a week before his death, which occurred on Oct. 14, 1934. Besides the widow he is survived by one sister, Mrs. Cynthia Donahue of Sparta, and three brothers, J.G. Walker of Chadwick and B.S. and R.D. Walker of Oklahoma. Funeral services were held at the Christian church in Nixa with Rev. B. Frank West officiating, with burial in the City Cemetery in Ozark. Albert’s father at one time served the county as a county judge and his brother, Dave Walker was also a sheriff many years ago. John Turner was Dave’s deputy. Then Albert followed in the footsteps of his father and brother and sought office, being elected twice to the office of county treasurer. A man of sterling qualities, faithful to home and friend, the loss of Albert Walker will be keenly felt. For more than forty years the constant companion of the one he had wooed and wed, his passing will leave her in a world of loneliness, her suffering may not be as physical as was his, but its only relief will be found in the quiet hours of meditation of years of sweet companionship, the thread of which is now broken. Albert Walker suffered patiently and uncomplainingly, thinking only of the regret of leaving the one he loved--he had no fear of death. We knew Albert Walker, not as a boy in youth, not as an associate in business; not as a public official, but we knew him only as a friend--a friend who loved nature as we love it’ we knew him as a man who enjoyed lying on his fishing cot beneath the overhanging limbs, watching the stars as they take their place in the darkness of the night and listening to the ripple of the racing stream as it wanders to the sea. A man like Albert Walker who loved nature as he loved it loved his fellowman as dearly. He will be missed by loved ones and friends, and we dedicate these lines to his living memory. a friend is dead. The earth has on a shroud of grey, with which to greet this dawning day--a friend is dead. The lark is soaring, failed to sing, it knew its notes would sadness bring--a friend is dead. The dells and nooks along the stream with sparkling dewdrops failed to gleam, --a friend is dead. And waiting fish within the brook, shy hastily by with mourning look,--a friend is dead. And Men, big men, strong men, they weep, like babies sob in fretful sleep, --a friend is dead. He loved them all, and knew them well, far better yet, than words can tell, but death, in strange and deadly way, stole him off, at close of day.--J.M.P.

Walker, Leonard W. 12 Jul 1812 - 17 Jan 1896 BT 23 Jan 1896

[Note: Son of William John & Polly (Adams) Walker; married  12 Sep 1842 Cannon Co TN  Nancy M. Adamson 24 Jul 1826 - 16 Oct 1901]

At 3:30 Sunday afternoon, Leonard Walker, one of the pioneer farmers of Christian county, passed from his earthly labors and suffering. The deceased had almost completed his eighty-fourth year and for half a century, no man was better known in the vicinity of Ozark. He went there from Tennessee long before the war and settled three miles northeast of the present townsite on the north side of Finley creek, near what is now known as the Walker mill. A large family of boys and girls were born and reared at the old homestead, 10 of whom survive the departed father. Perhaps no man in Christian County was so well known and highly respected as Uncle Leonard. He had spent less time in purposeless idleness, he had but one plan in meeting the needs of life, and that was by direct, honest, ceaseless labor. Two years ago, an accident resulted in a broken thigh, and from this injury he never fully recovered. His last days were full of pain, and the grave at least seemed to the weary sufferer but a welcome release from a  bed of so much affliction. The deceased was a member of the Baptist Church for many years. The remains were buried Monday afternoon at the family grave yard near the residence.
