Seeking any information on father of Howard Leonard WALKER born 28 December 1905 in Oklahoma; although most records state he was born in Arkansas. He was raised at St. Joseph Orphanage in North Little Rock, Arkansas. I have all the records St. Joseph has on him and it doesn't provide his father's name.
His mother was [[Pickett-1115|Allie Pickett]] and to the best of my knowledge she was born c1886 in TEXAS, daughter of James Mitchell Pickett and Sarah J. Hester, who were from Lincoln County, Tennessee.
I have a marriage record for James E. WALKER, born c1879 and Allie Pickett in Southern District of Indian Territory in 1901. James WALKER is not living in the home with Allie Pickett and little Howard in 1910.
What happened to James Walker?? Is he the father of Howard Leonard Walker?? Who is James E. WALKER?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or guidance!
