Known as Will Walker, b abt 1878, possibly in LA, but wound up in East Texas in the Marion Co. area. He married Emma Griffin Beal, b 1881,dau of Alfred/Alford D. Beal and Mary Farmer. Emma died in abt 1911. Will and Emma had the following children:
Lois Jewel, b 1905
Iris Wilda, b 1907
Cecil Irene, b 1901
Oval Joyce, b 1909
Dewey Clyde, b 1903

After Emma's death, Will was supposed to have married an Elv Dukes. No children resulted from this union. I don't know if she died or they divorced, but Will married again. The third marriage was to Ida ??. They had the following children:
Bart Walker
Ennis Walker
Beck Walker
Nora Walker
In the 1930 census, Will and Ida lived in Wood Co., TX.

It is said that Will lost an arm in a hunting accident. He was supposed to have been shot by a 17 yr old cousin.

I have been told that his father's name was Bartell Walker and his mother was Fannie Thompson, but have no proof of this.

Is there anyone researching this line of Walkers who would share information with me?
