Aunt Bib, you were always so kind to your niece and all your nephews. We're so sad to see you leave us -- but you're now in heaven with your brothers and sisters. Thanks for being a wonderful and gracious aunt!

We had the pleasure of knowing Bib through her special friendship with Winnie, my sister. She was indeed special, talented and loved by many. She will be missed here but we pray that Winnie, Bib's family and host of friends find peace in knowing she is now rejoicing in the arms of Jesus.

I know that Bib will be missed by many. She was such a speical friend to my sister, Winnie. They loved each other very much. I had the pleasure of meeting her once and she was such a lovely lady. I know she will be missed by all that knew her. My prayers go out to her family and to Winnie.

It was always a pleasure knowing Bibb. We first met in 2000, in our unusual art class held every Tuesday in Old Homosassa. She had been with our teacher, artist professional Bea Davis for many years before we met. Always friendly and very insdustrious as a painter. She had the intelligence and abilities equal to others in the class. She'll be missed by all those in her art class. She'll be missed! Hopefully Betty Sites who supplied Bibb's transportation to and from class for some time, will visit us frequently.
~? George Harbin, Homosassa, Florida

I knew Bib through visiting my sister, Winnie, over the years. We would usually have lunch together when I was there visiting. She was a wonderful lady and great friend to my sister. I know she will be missed by her family and friends. I know I will also miss her when I visit Winnie in Florida.

I loved Bib with all my heart. I smile every time I think of her. She had such a quick wit and always kept me laughing. We spent many wonderful hours together. I will always keep her in my heart, where she has been from the moment I met her. She was such a "Southern Belle" and a fine example of how a person should behave. I will never forget one of the first times we went to lunch and she was taking some home with her. She was putting the food one spoonful at a time in the takeout container. I said, "Just dump it, Bib." She said, "That wouldn't be genteel." Oh, how I will miss her. I wake up every morning thinking of her, and go to sleep every night thinking of her. What a fine example of a lady she was.

4 Arthur Leapard MARTIN had his name legally changed to Arthur Stephen MARTIN.
He was an electrical engineer by training having gone to the University of Florida for 3-1/2 years without graduating. He would have been in the class of 1939.

He served in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during World War II in New Guinea. After the war he was employed by Tropical Oil Company in Colombia, South America; City of West Palm Beach as assistant city engineer; Palm Beach Air Force Base as base civil engineer; Banana River Naval Air Station (now Patrick Air Force Base); Gee & Jenson Consulting Engineers; Boeing Company at Cape Canaveral and New Orleans where he worked on the Minuteman missile and Saturn V projects; and Bechtel Corp where he worked as a Quality Engineer on nuclear power plant projects.

He had an avid interest in boating (predominately sail boats and houseboats). This probably stemmed from his youth when he lived on a houseboat in Miami and he helped his grandfather deliver the U.S. Mail by boat in South Florida from West Palm Beach to Lake Okeechobee.

The below is from Anne J. Bailey and Walter J. Fraser, Jr.'s book entitled, Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of Georgia in the Civil War, Fayetteville: University of Arkansas, 1996, which is a very nice book with pictures and short biographical sketches of several people buried in Memory Hill Cemetery.

"Jacob Caraker, who had been captain of the guard at the Georgia State Penitentiary before the Civil War, joined the Baldwin Blues as 1st lieutenant in April 1861. The Blues eventually became Company H, 4th Georgia Infantry. Caraker was elected captain of his company when George Doles, who previously held that rank, became regimental colonel. Caraker commanded his men when Lee began his offensive; the captain's first fight was on June 25, 1862, at King's School House. The 4th Georgia lost almost 50 men there and suffered approximately one hundred additional casualties seven days later on the slopes of Malvern Hill. Caraker survived both battles, but was later wounded at Sharpsburg and resigned from service on February 3, 1863."

His Revolutionary service has not been traced, but Mrs. R.L. Walker of Waycross, Georgia who, as Miss Laura Singleton, was a neighbor of Thomas Bayne's family in Milledgeville, Georgia, says that she remembers a gun that hung on the back porch of the Bayne's home. She was told that their grandfather, John Bayne, used the gun in the Revolutionary Army. This Mrs. Walker, sister-in-law to Francis Aldolphus Bayne, was living in Waycross in 1955, and elegant old lady in her nineties.

27 Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Bayne

Mrs. Elizabeth Singleton Bayne passed away at her home in Vineville, Macon, last Sunday afternoon at five o'clock.

Mrs. Bayne was only ill two days. Five years ago she received serious injurious in a railroad accident, which caused her much suffering and was no doubt the indirect cause of her death. For the past nine years she has resided with her son, Mr. Samuel E. Bayne, in Macon. She was 56 years of age, and leaves two sons and two daughters, and a stepson, Mr. J. M. Bayne, of this city, and a large circle of relatives and friends, by whom she was greatly beloved.

Mrs. Bayne was a native of this city, and has a large number of life-long friends here. She was the daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Singleton, and widow of the late A. F. Bayne. Her remains were brought to this city yesterday. The funeral services were held at the Methodist church, of which she was a devoted member during her residence here. The funeral services were conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. H. Mashburn. Her remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of sorrowing friends, and laid to rest in the family lot, by the side of husband and other kindred, who preceded her to the spirit land.

She was an excellent woman in all the relations of life.

40 JOHN LOTT WALKER, M. D. One of the best known members of the medical
fraternity of Ware county, John Lott Walker. M. D., is devoted to his practice,
and well deserves the reputation he enjoys of being one of the most skillful and
faithful physicians of Waycross. A son of Elisha Walker, he was born on a farm
in Washington county, the home farm having been located ten miles south of
Tennille, and twelve miles west of Wrightsville. He comes of early colonial
stock, the immigrant ancestor of the branch of the Walker family from which he
is descended having come to America prior to the Revolution, locating very near
the northern boundary line of North Carolina.

Lott Walker, the doctor's grandfather, was born in Laurens county, Georgia,
in 1801, his father, also named Elisha Walker, having settled there on removing
from North Carolina. During the earlier part of his active career, Lott Walker
resided in Henry county, Georgia, from there removing to Johnson county, where
his wife owned a tract of land that had come to her through inheritance. He
purchased land adjoining hers and, with slave help, carried on general farming
until his death, in 1880, at the age of seventy-nine years. He married Polly
Walters, who was born in that part of Laurens county now included in Johnson
county, being a daughter of Richard Walters, a farmer, who came from Virginia to
Georgia. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Lott Walker, three of them
being sons, Elisha, William and Moses, and five being daughters, as follows:
Gatsy, Ann, Melissa, Mary and Eliza.

Born in Henry county, Georgia, in 1832, Elisha Walker settled in Washington
county, Georgia, soon after his marriage, being there employed for a time in
general farming. Subsequently buying land in Johnson county, he farmed with the
help of slaves until the war between the states, and afterwards there continued
his labors until 1906. Removing then to Wrightsville, he has since lived there
retired from active pursuits, enjoying the fruits of his earlier years of toil.
His wife, whose maiden name was Martha Webb, was born in what is now Johnson
county, Georgia, in 1831, a daughter of Rev. John and Charlotte (Covington)
Webb, and granddaughter of Rev. Covington, her father and maternal grandfather
having both been ministers in the Methodist Episcopal denomination. Eight
children were born of their union, namely: John Lott, Ann, Minta, Tabitha,
Dolly, Nora, William, and Joseph.

Receiving his early education under private tutors, John Lott Walker first
attended medical lectures in Louisville, Kentucky, at the Kentucky School of
Medicine, and in 1879 was graduated from the Atlanta Medical College with the
degree of M. D. The following seven years Doctor Walker was engaged in the
practice of his profession at Wrightsville, Johnson county. In 1886 he removed
to Waycross, where he has been in continual practice since, being one of the
longest-established and most successful physicians in this part of the county.
During the quarter of a century or more that the doctor has lived in Waycross,
he has seen the city grow from a village of one thousand souls to a wide-awake,
prosperous community of fourteen times as many inhabitants, while the
surrounding country, which was but sparsely settled when he came here, has
increased its population in a corresponding ratio.

Doctor Walker has invested largely in city property, wisely buying in the
business section, where, on Jane street, he owns a commodious building. He has
served three years as a member of the state board of medical examiners, and is
now a member of the Waycross board of education and is a member of the state
board of health. Fraternally the doctor belongs to Blackshear lodge. Ancient
Free and Accepted Order of Masons; to Waycross Lodge, No. 27, Knights of
Pythias; and to Way-cross Lodge. No. 99, Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

Doctor Walker married, in 1883, Miss Laura Singleton, who was born and
educated in Milledgeville, Georgia, being a daughter of Samuel and Ann
(Christian) Singleton, who reared four sons and four daughters, as follows:
Samuel, Stewart, Charles, Robert, Bettie, Ellen, Martha, and Laura. Her father
was in the employ of the state, and was also engaged for several years in the
mercantile business at Eatonton, where his last days were spent. The doctor and
Mrs. Walker have four children, namely: John S., Robert C., Annie Laurie, and
Samuel E. The doctor and his wife are both members of the Methodist Episcopal
church, and Mrs. Walker is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

41 Joseph Moreland was one of six children of Turner Moreland of Russell County, Alabama. He married Mary Ann Lamar, the sister of Mirabeau B. Lamar, the second president of the Republic of Texas, and came to Texas in about 1839. Joseph served the Republic in public office until his death in 1874. He died at his brother's home, A. C. Moreland, in Houston and was buried in Fairfield Cemetary, Freestone County, Texas. Moreland, Joseph (I31)
 
42 Lamar was a circuit judge in Georgia. He was the brother of Mirabeau Buonaparte Lamar, the second President of the Republic of Texas.

His friend Judge Iverson L. Harris wrote the inscription on Lamar's tombstone. It reads:

"Sacred to the memory of Lucius Q. C. Lamar, Late Judge of the Ocmulgee Circuit. Who during a brief service of five years discharged the duties of that high office with probity, firmness, assiduity and unquestionable reputation. The devoted love of his family, the ardent attachment of personal friends, the admiration of the bar, and the universal approbation of his enlightened administration of justice attest the goodness and eminence of one arrested by a death too early in the bright and useful career in which he had been placed by his native state. Born July 15, 1797. Died July 4, 1834."

Mrs. Walker, author of the book, "History of Ware County, Georgia," published in 1934, will, "have her name fragrantly recalled when many a financier and many a politician is forgotten," writes Knight.

Knight wrote, "We re-echo approval the words of Mr. John Greer in his fascinating forword, "It is fortunate for Ware County that she has among her own citizens one so well qualified to do the work which other counties of the state are doing viz: preserving the states traditions'. Georgia probably started too late to preserve the elements that go to make up a full report, but Ware County at least can rest in the assurance that her's is first among the first in quality and compoeteness."

Mrs. Walker says in her introduction: "Our work has been a labor of love. We therefore affectionately dedicate this work to the founders of Waycross, Dr. Daniel Lott, Dr. Benjamin Williams, Mr. William S. Bailey, and Captain Cuyler W. Hillard, who unselfishly created this city and whose memories must be preserved as long as this municipality shall live."

Mrs. Walker, before her marriage was Laura Singleton of Milledgeville, later Eatonton, daughter of Samuel Singleton and Ann Christian Singleton. On her parternal side she traces her lineage from Colonel Matthew Singleton, of Sumter County, South Carolina, one of the leading spirits in the early history of that state.

On the maternal side she is descended from Israel Christian, who colonized Botetourt County, Virginia, served in the Virginia House of Burgess from 1761 to 1764 and was a captain in the Continental Army. His name was given to Christian Colony, Virginia.

December 19, 1883, Laura Singleton was married to Dr. John Lott Walker, at that time first beginning to practice his profession in Wrightsville. They later moved to Waycross where they played a leading and influential part in the life of this south Georgia city.

Dr. Walker was born in Washington County and was the son of Elisha Walker and Martha Webb Walker. He engaged in the active practice of medicine for 47 years, 39 of which were spent in Waycross.
As a banker and a capitalist, Walker attained wide spread recoginition. For more than a quarter of a century he served as a director of the First National Bank in Waycross. At the time of his death he held the office of the chairman of the board.

His other accomplishments included: Trustee for the Eleventh District Agricultural and Mechanical School, and trustee for the School for the Deaf and Dumb at Caves Springs. He served three times as president of the Waycross Board of Education on which he served for 25 years. Dr. Walker served in the government of Waycross as an alderman, commissioner and mayor. He was the first president of the Chamber of Commerce and at one time served as president of the Ware County Bond Commission.

He was a mason and a Shriner, a member of Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent Protector of the Elks. He was a trustee of the First Methodist Church and served in many church offices over the years. Dr. Walker died May 14, 1929.

Dr. and Mrs. Walker had four children. They were: John Singleton Walker, an attorney; Robert Carroll Walker, a physician; Annie Laurie Walker (Mrs. C. A. Whitmer); and Samuel E. Walker, a real estate agent. All of the Walker children are now deceased.

Mrs. Walker's work in Waycross made history. In 1924 she planned a ceremony on the banks of the Suwannee River, marking the centennial of General Floyd's victorious march through the Okefenokee Swamp. In 1934, a pageant with 800 characters marking the 100th anniversary of Ware County and depicting the historical significance of Waycross was written and produced by her.

She erected markers and monuments at old trails and historic sites that the history and the romance of this section might not be forgotten. The Laura S. Walker State Park was named for her and she was the only woman to have a park named for her while she was living.

Agricultural development in Ware County advanced because of her interest. She was responsible for Ware's securing a home demonstration agent and a 4-H Club.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Waycross Woman's Clubs, and many other groups. The wife of a physician, she instituted movement for a hospital and better medical facilities.

Mrs. Walker, known to those of her day as "Waycross' First Lady," died on Saturday, April 9, 1955, at the age of 94.
