From a Delray, Florida or Palm Beach County Newspaper April 1913
On Thursday, April 24, the sad news reached J. S. and J. M. Walker of the
death of their father at Bassinger, Fla. The old folks spent several weeks
with the sons in Delray during the past winter.
Kissimmee Valley Gazette Obituary of Jeremiah Walker May 9, 1913 Page 3
After a long and useful life the summons came and was answered by Jeremiah Walker at the home of his son, W. F. Walker, at Bassenger on the 24th day of April, and his remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at that place the day following.
Mr. Walker was seventy-five years of age at the time of his death, and
leaves a wife and twelve children-----six sons and six daughters---one of
his sons being County Commissioner Frank Walker. Deceased moved to Bassenger
from this city about twenty years ago and engaged in the stock business, in
which he was remarkably successful. He served with gallantry in the
Confederate Army, but when hostilities ceased, accepted the fate with
calmness, and at once began rebuilding his shattered fortunes. He was a
believer in the Baptist faith, and lived in the love of the Redeemer.
