Emach Walker

Memoranda on Samuel T. Walker, Great Falls, Virginia. Circa. 1861-1862

Samuel T. Walker.-Born in Fairfax; lives near Great Falls. Was in our service as a wagon-master from 1st of September to Christmas, when the transportation was turned over to Major Barbour. Walker continued at Centreville with a Mr. Hubbell, going with his teams to Gainesville and Manassas. In February he received a letter from his wife informing him of the death of one of their children and her own sickness and asking him to remove her within our lines. He procured a pass to go out by Picket No. 5, but finding this would delay him too long he procured the officer in charge to alter it to No. 7. On his return he was arrested for this offense. I am satisfied from the testimony of various witnesses that Walker is faithful to the South and is a truthful and respectable man. He is the same man mentioned in Lieutenant [George M.] Emach's letter returned with Rowzie's case. I think he has been sufficiently punished for his offense. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance.
