I have a little info on my Great Great Grandfather who was John McDonough WALKER. He was involved with local politics in nearby Lindsay, Nebraska. In fact he named this small town. He had the first homestead at the north end of Shell Creek. I know this is in Platte County but I thought you may have some records that show he was also involved in the history of Boone County. He came to this part of Nebraska in 1870 from McGregor, Iowa. I know he was originally born in Fermandugh County, Ireland - March 6, 1826 and moved to Canada with his father in 1830. At age 20 he came to U.S. and fought in Mexican-American war in U.S. Army. His wifes maiden name was Catherine McCARTHY. He was very much involved with the politics of the local area serving as a County Commissioner as well as some sort of state legislater. He retired to Humphrey, Neb. in 1888 and died there Oct. 8, 1907 or possibly 1904. Again, I know most of his life was lived out in nearby Lindsay and Humphrey but I was hoping you might have some additional info next door in Boone County. I also know he was close to the Franciscan Monks in the area possibly near Columbus. He was Catholic and worked closely with the Franciscans, perhaps they may have some info on him. Anything please would be helpful. Please email me asap.
