  • Notes 
    • George: Father born in Massachusetts. Mother born in England

      Excerpt from book from Richard Walkden: Joel and Olive Potter sold their farm to George and Agnes Walkden in 1905 situated West of the Four corners (Royalton & Station) Ohio. There they raised their children. One part of the farm was sold to a Baptist minister, Rev. Doyle after George and Agnes passed. There Rev. Doyle built a red barn fully intending to retire here. Instead Reuben's son Richard, bought it for his bride Helen Spitzer. So the old Walkden farm is once again all family owned. Richard and his sisters Doris Keller and Ruth Palmer keep a watchful eye on their mother Evaline Cartwright Walkden, who like the Potters and the Walkdens before her, has enjoyed a rich family life in the old homestead.

      The Potter farm was put up on Auction for a cash sale. He sold his residence, 2 miles west of Columbia Center on Wed Jan 25, 1871 at 10:00 a.m. the following property: 1 span of horses, 4 good cows, 8 fat cattle, 49 fat sheep, 10 coarse wooled sheep, 1 breeding sow, 12 shoats, about 60 bushels of wheat, a quantity of corn and oats, 1 mow of hay, 1 plow, 1 wagon, 1 pair of bob sleds, 1 caldron kettle and other articles too numerous to mention.
