CHARLES WALKER and ANNA BATES WALKER
Charles and Anna had a large farm on Braddock Avenue along side the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks. Anna was the sister of my Grandmother, Ida Mae. Brothers married sisters. (Jean's Note 2012: As a little girl, I would go and see "Aunt Annie". I don't remember her husband-Charles died a year after I was born-but I loved to visit her in the house on Braddock Ave. at the end of what is now known as Barrett Ave. I would often find her in her "root cellar basement", and one day I walked in on her and she was smoking a cigarette. She told me that the doctor had ordered it for her health and that I was never to tell my mother or father. I suspect that she was a closet smoker for I never saw her do it again)
They had one daughter, Mabel. Mabel married Dr. Horace Fooder, a typical country doctor in Williamstown.
He was highly regarded and lived in Williamstown. When I was in Kennedy Hospital for surgery in 1985, my roommate was an elderly Italian lady from Williamstown. I asked her if she ever heard of Dr. Fooder. She said, "Did I, He delivered all seven of my children at home on the farm. We were poor then. We raised sweet potatoes and tomatoes. The only pay he would take was for us to keep him supplied with those two vegetables. We were happy to do so. I will never forget that good man."
Mabel and Horace had one son, Dr. Elwood Fooder, who was a veterinarian. He lived and had his practice on Grove Street in Haddonfield. His wife's name was Bernice. They had no children. Horace fooder died in 1949. Mabel died in 1973. Elwood and Bernice moved from Haddonfield in the late 1970's or early 80's. I don't know where they went. (Jean's Note 2012: Elwood and Bernice have both passed away and are buried in Bates Mill Cemetery.)
