This is my GGGG-Grandfather. He's the Father of Marion Francis "Frank", who's the Father of George Thomas "Tom", who the Father of Elva Joy, who the Mother of my Dad, Thomas H. Walker. Adam died on Christmas Eve of 1871. Folklore has it that Adam was hanged 8 year's before his death and that an Indian in the area saw it and cut him down after the "bushwacker's" left. Supposedly it broke his neck and he had scar's from a ropeburn around his neck until his death.
