The Malone Farmer, February 14, 1912

Arthur Walker, who had his foot and leg so badly mangled in the Rutland R. R. yard here the other day that it had to be amputated at the Ogdensburg City Hospital, is a son of Stephen Walker, of Saranac Lake and resided there until a few years ago. He had recently taken a position with the Rutland road, changing from a job which he had with the D. & H. R. R. at Rouses Point. The family seems to have been pursued by accidents in recent years. Arthur's brother, Jack, is an amateur skater who two years ago was shot through the lung while hunting rabbits with some other boys. A buckshot passed through his breast and was taken out from under the skin of the back. Another brother, Robert, had an arm cut off after it was terribly injured in a mangle which he operated in a Saranac Lake laundry, and a sister received a broken arm in a fall a few years ago.
