Webster County Family Album

    Walker Sisters, Marion Chamberlain, Nathan Hatfield

Left to right in this photo, which was taken in Webster County about 1915, are: Marion Chamberlain, his friend Nathan Hatfield, Bessie, Ethel and Connie Walker, the daughters of John David "Johnie" Walker and his first wife Rosa Avery Thomas. Their stepmother was Arah McCullen Beal.

Marion McKinley Chamberlain and Bessie Mae Walker eloped and married in Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN, 8 Dec 1916.

Ethel Lee Walker married about 1917 (date & place unknown) to Strauther J. Sellers.

Connie Bell Walker eloped and married 17 December 1917, Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN to George Cosby Odom; they were underage, so they and their witnesses conspired to give their ages as older so they could get married.

Connie Walker Odom's living biography is online; in it she talks about the elopement.

Gloria Odom Trommler, who contributed this photo, is the grandaughter of George "Cosby" Odom & Connie Walker. Gloria has several web sites online with information about her family:
