S. J. Preston began publishing the Walker Herald, a weekly
journal sold by subscription, and continued its publication until two
weeks before his death in 1931. Neoma Foreman was given permission by
Preston's family to transcribe the extant issues of the newspaper and
publish those transcriptions in three volumes. Each of the three volumes
is fully indexed. A “21st Century Award” from the Missouri State
Genealogical Association helped fund in part the publication of the
books. The 3-vol. set can be purchased for $50.00 (includes Media
