WALKER FAMILY STATISTICS

James H. Walker [b.1885 - d.1954] and Mary Elizabeth Ann (Fannye) Harris [b.1886 - d.1969] were married in the Salt Lake Temple on February 21, 1912 and lived in Raymond, Alberta for the rest of their lives. They had 12 children, 9 of whom lived to maturity. In the eighty-eight years since their marriage, our family has grown by 486 people, 489 of whom are still living. This directory is one small way of keeping our family ties strong.

The following is an excerpt from the Glenbow archives:

James H. "Farmer Jim" Walker, 1885-1954, was born in Coalville, Utah, USA. He moved to Alberta in 1903 and homesteaded near Grassy Lake. He later moved to Raymond and served as secretary-treasurer of the Knight Sugar Company, before resuming farming and ranching.  He sat in the Alberta Legislature from 1940 to 1944 as an independent member. In 1912 he married Fannye Harris of Layton, Utah, and they had 12 children, J. Harris, Beth (Zemp), Fay, Mary (Fairbanks), Jane (McMullin), Robert, Floyd, Lloyd, Ralph, Reed, Glen and Richard. He was active in the Mormon church. 


A Few Statistics for the Past Year

In 2001 our family grew from 472 to 498 members. This increase of 26 is 5 less than last year’s record growth. It includes 15 new babies (and again, several more on the way) plus 8 marriages since last November. Two others have been added as members of our extended family, and two miscounts from last year were corrected.

Our nine families include:
