Quarterly Publication of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio, Vol. 7 free pdf Excerpt from Quarterly Publication of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio, Vol. 7: Journal of Miss. Susan Walker, March 3d to June 6th, 1862 The Journal of Miss Susan Walker, published in this issue of the Quarterly, covers only a few weeks of the many years she devoted to charitable work, and was, undoubtedly, merely a memorandum of daily proceedings for personal use during her stay at Port Royal. However, it holds much of interest to the reader as it furnishes an insight into the daily routine life of the women who engaged in the "Port Royal Experiment," and exhibits her views of the surrounding conditions and the effort made by the Government to provide for the deserted slaves in that locality, and preserve the uncared for cotton growing in the fields. The original manuscript journal was given to the Society by Mrs. Maria (Walker) Bartholow, a niece of Miss Walker, and the widow of the distinguished physician, Dr. Roberts Bartholow, formerly of Cincinnati, later of Philadelphia. Mrs. Nicholas Longworth and Miss Ann Walker of this city are also nieces, and Dr. E. W. Walker is a nephew. The following article was published December, 1887, in the Lowell, Mass., Courier: "A Remarkable Woman. The Useful Career of Miss Susan Walker - Her Work for the Freedmen. The death of Miss Susan Walker, which occurred in Washington, D. C., on the 13th inst., has removed from earth a lady who, through her somewhat remarkable career of life, her interest and activity in the political and educational questions which were prominent in the country's agitation a quarter of a century ago, has attached her name and fame [sic], and rendered herself in no small degree conspicuous for her many eminent traits of character and brilliant successes in the line of duty which she early marked out to pursue. Miss Walker was born in Wilmington, Mass., February 14, 1811, and was the daughter of Benjamin and Susannah Walker of that town. She was a sister of the late Benjamin Walker, one of the early settlers of the city of Lowell, and active in both its city and town affairs, being for several years a selectman and also a member of the first board of aldermen when Lowell became a city.
