Rev. J. M. Walker was born in Wayne County, Tenn., Jan. 31, 1828. He departed this life Dec. 20, 1905. He professed faith in Christ at New Providence camp ground, Aug. 18, 1842, and joined the C. P. Church at the same place the next day. He was ordained a ruling elder in the same church the next fall. He was taken under the care of Richland Presbytery in 1849. He was licensed to preach Sept. 20, 1851, and ordained to the whole work of the ministry, April, 1855. The ordination sermon was preached by Rev. Felix Johnson, and the charge was given by Rev. C. P. Reed. His early ministry was the common lot of pioneer life. He was not what is known in our latter days as a big preacher, but he was of intense consecration and spirituality. In the present trial of our church, he was greatly interested in its perpetuation.
