GODFREY WALKER and ANNA WALKER
1822-1891 died 1909
Godfrey and Anna were German immigrants. They were married aboard ship coming over to America. Godfrey’s last name was Wacker. He changed it to Walker some time after he arrived in the states. They settled on a large farm in Winslow Township. Walker Avenue runs right through the middle of the farm. It dead ends on one end at Braddock Road and on the other end at Waterford-Blue Anchor Road. I spent many• weekends on the farm visiting my Grandfather Frank [Walker] and Grandmother Ida [Bates] there. There are houses built on the farm now. Godfrey and Anna had four sons and one daughter; they were William, Charles, Frank, George, and Lottie. Godfrey and Anna and some of their descendants are buried at Bates Mill Cemetery. A few are buried in Berlin Cemetery. Bates Mill Cemetery is a lovely, quiet little cemetery. It is located about a quarter mile off route 30, just off Waterford-Blue Anchor Road,on the road that passes Camp Haluwasa.
