Birth of Clifford Wheeler Walker

After a year of courtship Cyrus Walker and Mary Wheeler were married on November 25, 1886. Two years later their first child, Clifford Wheeler Walker, was born. The couple lived together in Warm Springs for another year until Mary received a parcel of land from her parents and moved with their infant son to the Wheeler Family Farm in Linn County, Oregon. The papers do not make it clear why she moved, but ill health or perhaps property considerations forced them to live apart for some time.
