WALKER - In Rome, New York, February 15, 1866, after a long and severe sickness, WILLIAM J. WALKER, aged 46 years.
     The deceased was extensively known in this community, having been a resident in the place for more than twenty years.  He was a man of active business habits, and one of the leading mechanics of the village, hence had much to do with the building interests of the town, and perhaps but few men would be as much missed as he in this department of business effort.
     Upright and faithful in his engagements, he had won the entire confidence and high esteem of all his employers.
From his first residence in this village he had been connected with the fire department, and to his good judment, practical knowledge of the wants of his department, and good influence over the men, much of the efficiency of this important organization is indebted.  The Mechanics' Association also conferred on him the honor of its presidency, showing the estimation in which he was held by his fellow mechanics.  He leaves a wife almost heart-broken, and three children to mourn their great loss.  He was a member of the First M.E. Church of Rome, NY.  (RCFeb23/1866)
