WILLIAM WALKER, a native of Addison Township, was born May 17, 1829, being the eldest of ten children born to Francis C. and Isabel (Bushfield) Walker, who were natives of New York City and Pennsylvania respectively.  By a prior marriage, the former was the father of two children.  He emigrated to Shelby County about 1818 and lived here until his death occurred which was in 1850, dying while en route to Kansas, at Hannibal, MO.  Our immediate subject grew to manhood on the farm, receiving a limited education, such as the facilities of those days afforded in the primitive log school-houses of that time.  He remained at home and assisted his parents until he attained the age of twenty-two years.  June 5, 1851, his marriage with Miranda Woodard was solemnized, and to their union four children have been born, these two now living: James, who married Fannie Brown and Elizabeth, widow of Thomas Stearns.  The deceased children were: Belle, and an infant, un-named.  He has always made farming his occupation, and has been quite successful.  He now owns 100 acres of well improved land.  He has always, with the exception of three years, when he removed to and lived in Wisconsin, resided in this county.  He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  In politics he is a Republican.
