STANLEY BROWN WALKER, son of Richard Walker, a prominent citizen among
the early settlers of Hardin county, was born in Virginia, Feb. 22,
1787, but was brought to Harden [sic] county, Kentucky, by his parents,
when he was only a year old. Here he was brought up without ever having
had the good fortune, as he expresed it, to see the inside of a school-
house, till after he was 21 years of age. At an early age, he united
with Otter Creek (now Rolling Fork) church, in what is now LaRue county,
of which his parents were members. Here he was licensed to preach,
about 1813. His gifts were meager, and he was esteemed principally for
his piety and zeal. He labored, in his humble zealous way, within the
bounds of Russells Creek Association, without being ordained, but not
without usefullness, about ten years. In 1823, he moved to Perry
county, Indiana, where he labored another ten years, among the feeble
young churches of Little Pigeon Association. He then moved to Clark
county, Illinois, where he closed his earthly career with a third ten
years of service in his Master's Vineyard. He died Jan. 28, 1843. His
son, William Walker, is a very acceptable preacher, in Coles county,
