Zumwalt House Near the River – 1921

This picture is dated 1921, probably mid-summer. On the back of the original there were twelve persons listed from left to right. They are: Jimmy, Maude Walker, Ernest Pierce, Linda (Lane), Estelle Pierce holding baby Joe Pierce who was born on Christmas Day 1920, Terry Walker, Lou (Lane) Patton, Velma (Edwards) Walker, Gladys Patton, Winnie, and Alfred Walker Jr. I have confirmed identities and relationships of all but Jimmy. Jack Walker III sent me this picture with names on the back and he believed that Jimmy and Winnie are Linda’s children. However Winnie, born in 1899, is the daughter of Jefferson D. Lane. Jefferson is the second child in Alfred G. Lane’s second marriage and was born two years after Lou Lane. Linda Lane is the third child and was born in 1865. The house in this picture is the Zumwalt House and was located near the river. Alfred and Velma were living in this house having been married a little over a year. Jack was born here in August 1921 and the house washed away in the spring flood of 1922. A.J. Walker and his mother Sarah bought the Pecan Grove property just before Christmas in 1899 from the Zumwalt couple.

Lou (Aunt Lou)(Lane) Patton and Linda Lane are sisters, and daughters of Alfred G. Lane’s second marriage and therefore they are half-sisters to Sarah (Lane) Walker, Juda Priscilla (Lane) Brown and Simon B. Lane. Gladys Patton, age 11 in this picture, is the only daughter of Mark and Lou (Lane) Patton.
