From all we can learn, this is a picture of James M. Walker's mother. All the identification we have is " The Indian picture", but we believe her name was possibly Nancy Catherine

We are at a road block here. According to census records, James' father was born in Missouri, but we have not been able to find him. We have heard stories that one of his brothers was a town marshal or a deputy sheriff of Callahan County, but have had no luck in following this lead.

We do know there was a rift in the family about 1900 - 1910, but have not been able to find any details about it. We have learned recently that James' mother is supposed to be buried at Putnam, Callahan County, Texas, but her grave is unmarked, so that seems to be a dead end (no pun intended). We have also learned that her name was Catherine (?), maybe.

The family lived in an area bounded by Coryell County (Fort Hood) Callahan County, Taylor County, Coleman County, Concho County, and Mills County. They lived in Cottonwood, Putnam, Oplin, in Callahan County; in Bradshaw, Tokeen (Content) and Shep in Taylor County; in Goldsboro, Novice, and Coleman in Coleman County; in Stacy and Doole in Mills County; and in Concho County near where O. H. Ivey Reservoir is now.

AS you can see we have quite a bit of almost information, but at this time we are literally steering blind. Something will break though; it always has before.
