Caroline Cheezem was born in Parke county, Indiana, on May 27, 1829, and died March 1st, 1906, aged 76 years, 7 months and 4 days.

She was married April 13th, 1848, to S. M. Walker. To this union was born thirteen children, six boys and seven girls. Two boys and six girls with their father survive a loving, dutiful and faithful mother and wife.

The deceased has been an active member of the M. E. church for over fifty years. All these years she has lived in the community where she died and all have many times heard her testimony that she was at perfect peace with her God. It has always been a blessed benediction to all to visit her pleasant and hospitable home and the community will continue to be graced by the influence of a self-sacrificing faithful Christian life. Member of the fourth generation were present at the funeral.

Note: Burial was at Ebenezer cemetery.

Coordinator's note: The obituary states that the deceased's date of birth was May 27, 1829 whereas the gravestone says May 26, 1828. If you use the obituary's years-months-days, you get yet a different date of July 25, 1829. We currently have insufficient information to resolve these discrepancies.
