Stuart W. Walker, Esq.
Ch. Cmtee. 4 July Cel.
I am sorry to inform you that on account of the many rains we have had around us for the past month, the wheat, hay harvest & corn plowing has been delayed for several weeks and as most of our men are engaged in that business, they find it impossible to be able to accept your invitation on the 4th July next.
With regrets that we are unable to attend I am Respectfully YoursL.S. Walker
1st Lieut. Commanding Anderson Guards
Is anyone familiar with the family of this man? Was he Luther Sommers Walker, died 16 Aug 1907, at the age of fifty, marriend Annie Haas, and the son of Samuel T. Walker (d. at Chancellorsville, 1863) and Mary Sommers Walker Zirkle (m. Lewis Zirkle)? I would like to include information about this L.S. Walker, who was clerk of the Shenandoah County Court in 1889. Please email Don Silvius if you can help. NOTE: information on Luther Sommers Walker from "Someone You Knew II" by Judy Coffman Stickley, a MUST for Shenandoah County genealogists.
