Robert Scott Walker died at his country home near Lewisburg, Marshall County, Tenn., February 28, 1922, the same community in which he had spent his entire life except the time he served in the Confederate army. He was born January 10, 1839, and enlisted June 18, 1861, in Company A, 4th Tennessee Cavalry, under Col. Baxter Smith, and was a brave and true soldier. Comrade Walker was a member of one of Tennessee's most sturdy and highly connected families, and he himself was a fair representative of the worth and personnel of the citizenship which always reflected honor upon the family. He was active in the affairs of Church and State, and could always be depended upon the get on the right side, if he knew it. He was for two terms sheriff of Marshall County, his incumbency being from 1882 to 1886. He was also chairman of the county court for two years.

He was a member of the Southern Presbyterian Church, and was buried near his home at the historic old church, Bethbirei, the one hundreth anniversary of this Church being celebrated in 1910. Mr. Walker's mother and father were charter members of this Church.

The Confederate flag he loved so well was placed upon the casket among the many floral offerings. He leaves a wife, four sons, and two daughters.
