Mrs. Walker Dead
Well Known Lady Passes Away.
Was Among the Pioneer Settlers, Coming With Her Husband From North Carolina.

Mrs. Letitie M. Walker, widow of the late F. M. Walker, died in Cartersville January 21, 1908, and was buried the following day in the Cartersville cemetery; age 74 years.

Mrs. Walker was among the oldest residents of Bartow county.  She was married in 1853 to Mr. Martin Walker, in Surry County, North Carolina, and soon after came with her husband to Cassville to reside. Just after the war they moved to Pine Log and lived there until 1871, when they came to Cartersville and this was their permanent home.

While living at Pine Log, Mrs. Walker was converted under the preaching of General Clement A. Evans and joined the Methodist church of which she continued a faithful and devoted member during her life.

Mrs. Walker leaves surviving her two daughters and three sons: Mrs. J. H. Sligh, of Gadsden, Ala. Mrs. J. R. Banton, of Cartersville, Mr. R. B. Walker of Dallas, Mr. T. M. Walker of New York and Mr. Herbert Walker of Atlanta.

Mrs. Walker had been in failing health for some months and her death was not unexpected.  It came quietly and she “fell on sleep” sweetly.  Hers was a faithful home life.  She lived and wrought for her children.  She gave her life gladly to them and then in her declining days received and enjoyed their unfailing love and care.  She was a good wife, a devoted mother and a true Christian.  No higher tribute could be paid to woman.
