Looking for my John P. Walker b. 1828 in Rome, Oneida County, NY. Went to Arizona then on to Nevada by 1861.
Here is his obit from the Northeastern Nevada Genealogical Society publication the Chart & Quill obit extract:
John P. Walker John P. Walker - died - 29 July 1898, buried in the Elko Old City cemetery. Born 1828 in Rome N.Y.. in 1861 came to Carson & worked for the Overland Stage Company. in 1862 moved to Jacobsville near Austin [Nevada], to Lamoille Valley in 1865. elected sheriff of Lander Co., in 1868. Leaves a widow, 1 son, & 4 daughters. "May the old pioneer rest peacefully beneath the sod of the county he helped to build."
Any help finding information on his siblings or parents in New York would be greatly appreciated,
