Nelson A. Walker, the elder son of R. M. Walker, was born on the old family homestead in Mount Pleasant and attended school until fifteen or sixteen years of age. He was early trained to habits of industry in connection with the work of the farm and for twenty years he operated his father’s dairy. During the past five years his time and energies have been devoted to the further cultivation of his father’s eighty-acre tract of land, which he has brought to a high state of development, rendering it very productive. His methods are at once practical and progressive and excellent results follow his labors.
On the 19th of August, 1914, Nelson A. Walker was married to Miss Gertrude F. Chamberlain, a daughter of George H. and Ida L. (Draper) Chamberlain, the former a native of New York and the latter of Massachusetts. Nelson A. Walker has followed in the footsteps of his father in various ways. Like him, he is a republican and also a member of the Freewill Baptist church. Three generations of the family have been identified with the agricultural progress of the community and with the growth and development of the County for eighty-one years.
