Sent from the Internet (Details)

Hi Cindy,
    Here is some information about my Walker family. My g-grandmother
was Frances (Walker) Long; she was the daughter of William Alfred Walker
and his wife, Corilla Porter. William A. Walker was an early citizen of
Elyton (now Birmingham); he was a merchant and planter and owned alot of
land. He built the house in the 1840's. The information that I can read
easily on the postcard indicates that the house was owned/occupied by a
Smith family. Jack Smith was the owner; he was a grandson of William A.
Walker. He and his sister, Grace Smith lived in the house until they
could no longer keep it up. Their mother, Lucy Smith, had inherited the
house from her mother, Corilla Porter Walker.
    I have lots of information about the house and more copies of photos
of the house. My mother copied the photos from a file in the Photographs
and Prints Division, Library of Congress. She remembers the house very
clearly and was very disappointed when it was torn down. At least the
mansion, Arlington still remains in the area. It was owned by collateral
relatives of the Walker family.
    Would you please let me know what is written on the postcard? I
could read some of the words but not all of them. Thanks so much! It was
a wonderful surprise to see the photo on your website. I would be happy
to send you via snail mail the photos from the Library of Congress.
    Is there any chance that you could scan the postcard and e-mail it
to me? I would like to give a copy to my mother.
  Grace Hertz
