My Walker Family in Coleman Co.TX.
Posted by: Willie Gruber (ID *****0850) Date: April 23, 2005 at 11:36:40

Hello there, Hiram Thomas Walker is my Great-Grandfather. He was born 1874 in Coleman Co, Tx .died in N.M. His brother is Harrison Walker that was born in La. in 1871. And their brother was Robert Walker also born in La. in 1869. There was a little girl born ,but she died at a young age. I have a photo of their Mother. Her name is Cecilia Ann Jones Walker born in 1842 Ms.. She was Chotaw [Choctaw ??] Indian. I have a letter along with a photo of Cilia and Hiram. This letter states that she is Chotaw.
Her husband was James [Jim] Matthew Walker born 1830 in St Clair, Al.
He is buried next to Cilia here in the middle of Fort Worth. They were buried by number instead of a tombstone. They had died of cholera ..
There were so many that had died at that time they just dug a ditch. Also since she was Indian, They buried her on the other side of the fence, But still she layed next to Jim. Just had a fence between them. Now the Fence is no longer there.So they are together. I will have to go down to the Cemetery and talk with the Folks down there to find their Grave. Sure would like to find out more on our Walker line.
This is all I have so far. Except I have been looking into James Mathew's Mother could posibly be Kittura [Keturah] Mathews d/o Rev. James Mathews (b. 1791). Rev. James M. had a brother, William; and a sister Elizabeth Rebecca. Thanks to Dee for sending this my way. I have a direction to go in.
Maybe there is a connection. Any Help out there???
Willie in Fort Worth,TX.
