Lindley J. Walker Died Yesterday

Lindley J. Walker, a native of Indiana, passed away at his home on W. Fifth street yesterday afternoon, aged 76 years 10 months and 8 days.

Mr. Walker had been working in his garden during the afternoon and Mrs. Walker went out shortly after three o'clock to see how he was getting along, and found him lying upon the ground dead. She called in some of the neighbors and Coroner G.S. Easterday was summoned, who had the body removed to the undertaking parlors of Aston & Neal, where an examination was made and the cause of his death assigned to angina pectoris, a heart trouble.

Mr. and Mrs. Walker came here from Kansas City, Missouri, last March and had been residents of this city since that time. Mr. Walker who was a veteran of the Civil war, had been failing for some time and his death was not entirely unexpected.

He is survived by his wife and two sons, Guy Walker, of Plymouth, Kansas, and Max Walker of Port Netclus Texas. The funeral will be held from the undertaking parlors of Aston & Neal tomorrow morning at 10:30, under the auspices of the Grand Army of the Republic, of which he was a member. Interment will take place at the I.O.O.F. cemetery.

The sympathy of the community is extended to Mrs. Walker in her bereavement.
