elcome to my little home on the web.  This is where I have some of my genealogy research. Not all of what I have is posted as I have been doing this for over 20 years. I hope that if you find something that helps you in your research you will let me know. If you are connected I would love to add your lines to our family tree. 

I would like to thank everyone who has been involved with providing information to add to our family tree. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please sign the guest book to let me know you were here.

Dave Walker Killed G.W. McAdoo Wednesday Morning: Surrendered Today. Luther Walker Also In Jail For Threat: Happened Near Lark. Killing Followed Difficulty Over Stalk Field: Walker Caught With Still Monday


George Washington McAdoo

1862 - 1922




G.W. McAdoo, well know farmer of the Lark community, was shot and instantly killed Wednesday morning about 11 o'clock at the home of John DILLARD, by Dave WALKER, on whose farm MCADOO lives.
The Sheriff's force searched for Walker all day Wednesday and late up into the night, but he made his get-away across the river until early today, came to town with a friend, Tom MATCHEN, and surrendered to Sheriff GLENN.
The difficulty is alleged to have arisen over the selling of a stalk field to McAdoo. McAdoo, who was a tenant on Walker'S farm, is alleged to have sold his three-fourths interest in a stalk field.
WALKER yesterday, after making bond for being caught with a still on Monday, went to McAdoo's house to ask him about the stalk. But was informed that Mr. McAdoo had gone to a neighbor's, Mr. John Dillards, Walker went on to Dillard's and demanded that McAdoo pay him for a stalk field, whereupon it is alleged that McAdoo told him he had sold only his interest and to look to the stockman for his part. Walker then shot McAdoo, who was unarmed, it is said.
After shooting him, Walker Ran Towards The River. When Mr. Dillard Sought To Follow, it is said that Luther Walker, a brother of Dave Walker, came out of the nearby brush and told him to stop.
Luther Walker was arrested yesterday by Sheriff GLENN and brought to town. The preliminary will likely be heard next week before the justice court here.
