Second Generation

6. Thomas Lewis Walker, b. 28-Sep-1825 in Askrigg, Wensleydale, Yorkshire, England. He married Mary Ann Thomas, married 4-Jul-1854 in Highland, Iowa, WI, b. 4-Sep-1835 in Linden, Iowa, WI, (daughter of Thomas R. Thomas and Elizabeth Hughes) d. 30-Jan-1919 in Wingville Twp., Grant, WI, buried: 2-Feb-1919 in Ebenezer Cemetery, Fennimore, WI. Thomas died 3-Oct-1907 in Preston, Grant, WI, buried: 6-Oct-1907 in Ebenezer Cemetery, Fennimore, WI. Per his biography in the 1901 Grant Co., WI History, Thomas "sailed to the U.S. on February 25, 1849 from Liverpool, England with his brother Peter. The voyage lasted 9 weeks and they arrived in New Orleans. There they took passage for Galena, Illinois, but this being the great cholera year, scarcely had the steamer left the harbor when fifty passengers were dead or dying. The captain of the boat suggested to Thomas and Peter Walker that they add a little alum to their drinking water, and take as a preventative a little brandy and red pepper. Whether this is a infallible remedy or not, Mr. Walker cannot say, but he and his brother were among the few that escaped the scourge. From Galena, they traveled to a place near Benton, in Lafayette County, Wisconsin where he engaged in lead mining, but as he was a mason by trade, he decided to return to Illinois, and located in Jo Davies Co., working in the summer at his trade, and in winter as a miner. Finally he was employed to purchase minerals, and was located near Shullsburg, Wisconsin for about a year, at what was known as Big Patch Furnace, at a higher salary than he had yet received. However, in a year, Thomas Walker engaged in mining again, and then worked in the smelting works near Hazel Green for about a year. Having accumulated sufficient money, he purchased a farm of 240 acres, nine miles south of Muscoda. A year later he exchanged it for one in the town of Clifton, Grant County." Per the Passenger List, Thomas and his brother Peter sailed on the ship Saxony, departing from Liverpool, England on or about 19 Feb 1849; arriving at New Orleans on 30 Apr 1849. In addition to his property in Wisconsin, Mr. Walker possessed 160 acres in Sherman County, Kansas, which he purchased while spending several years in the locality while making a trip in 1888. On February 1, 1865 Mr. Walker was enrolled as a member of Company H, 7th Wisconsin V. I. which regiment formed a part of the famous Iron Brigade and for a time after enlistment he was drilled in Camp Randall, Madison, Wisconsin. As spring approached the regiment was sent to Cullpepper Court House, Virginia and on May 4th, 1864, entered upon the famous Campaign of the Wilderness. Mr. Walker participated in all of the battles of that bloody campaign around Petersburg, including the battle for possession of the Weldon Railroad. The regiment joined in the pursuit of General Lee, and was at Appomattox, being mustered out of service July 30, 1865. Although never wounded seriously, Mr. Walker had a very curious experience during the battle of Petersburg. Four bullets struck the buckle of his cartridge belt, in rapid succession, but he was not injured although any one of them would have meant certain death if he had not been protected by the buckle. Among his most valued possessions, may be seen in this self - same buckle, dented and showing signs of hard usage, but more precious than if incrusted with diamonds. At the Battle of Hatchers River, Mr. Walker took, which resulted in rheumatism and catarrh from which he never recovered. During his term of service in the army, Mr. Walker's wife and children remained on the farm at Clifton, where he rejoined them at the close of the war. Mr. Walker is a member of the Sam Montieth Post, G.A.R., and enjoys the confidence of a wide circle of friends, by whom his many excellent traits of character are appreciated at their true value. Purchased 40 acres of land in Castle Rock Twp., Grant, WI on 1 Oct 1856; 40 acres in Castle Rock Twp. on 15 May 1857; 160 acres in Castle Rock Twp. on 1 Jun 1858.
