LUTHER C. WALKER Observes 92nd Birthday Feb. 10
LUTHER C. WALKER, resident of Montague County 61 years, celebrated his 92nd birthday on Feb. 10. Mr. Walker, who resides about 1 ½ miles east of Nocona on Hwy 82 on land that has been in his possession since 1890, has been a resident of Texas since 1872. Born in Tippah County, Mississippi, Feb. 10, 1859, the pioneer came to Texas when he was 13 years old. He lived near Emory in Raines County two years then moved to Cooke County near Dexter where he lived six years, until he moved to Montague County. That same year, 1890, Luther Walker, his father, T. E. WALKER, and his five brothers moved to Collingsworth County, about 15 miles north of Childress. They drove their herd of cattle along the road which followed the Fort Worth and Denver RR. Traveling by day and herding the cattle at night, the Walker brothers and their father had difficulty with their cattle stampeding because of the passing trains. Luther Walker returned to Montague County and married MAUD BENTON in 1893. Mrs. Walker was a daughter of JIMMIE BENTON, long time pioneer of Montague County.

The Walker cattle brand now is the same as it was in the early days, a half circle 55 bar. In the early days of Walker’s residence in the county, he obtained his mail from Montague and Duxbury. He traded in a town east of him known as Head of Elm, now Saint Jo. He witnessed a hanging in Gainesville when the town was in its infancy. A man named NORTHSINGER was hanged after he was found guilty of murder. While the hanging was in process, a group of the condemned man’s friends staged a stampede in an unsuccessful attempt to halt the execution. Later another person confessed to the murder for which Northsinger was hanged.

Walker is the father of nine living children. A son, TOM WALKER, former Montague County state representative, and World War I veteran, died some years ago.
