Hon. A. C. Walker is anoth­er man, who though not strictly speaking a pioneer, yet whose name is inextricably mixed with the development of Northwood. He was born in York county, Maine, January 16, 1828, and came to Northwood in 1871. From 1868 to 1871, he was chief clerk in the paymaster general's office in Augusta, Maine, and also had charge of the state pension bureau.

After coming to Northwood, he engaged in the real estate business and in the remaining years of his life amassed a comfortable fortune. Mr. Walker was mayor of Northwood and representative from the 69th district in the 17th general assembly.

Mr. Walker was married to Miss Harriette Boothby on the 20th day of March 1849. They had two children, C. F. Littlefield and C. H. Walker, both of Northwood. Mr. Walker died July 17, 1901 and Mrs. Walker June 28, 1902.
