Irene married using her maiden name, and the Pastor of the Christian Church performed their ceremony. Melvin was working in Omaha, Nebraska, and the couple planned to live there.1,5
Divorce*September 1927Irene filed for divorce against Melvin in 1927, and in September 1927, the Circuit Court in Albany, Gentry County, Missouri, in the case of Irene Walker, Plaintiff, vs. Melvin J. Walker, Defendant, awarded a Decree of divorce to the plaintiff. Additionally, the care and custody of their minor daughter, Dolores J. Walker, who was ten months old, was also awarded to Irene.6

He and his mother had arrived in Stanberry, Gentry County, from Omaha, a month before his death.

Burial*He was buried in Jennings Cemetery, Alanthus Grove, Gentry County.1
Newspaper Item*8 September 1932 On 8 September 1932, the Stanberry, Missouri newspaper published an item issued by Bertha (Coffey) Walker and addressed to all her friends in and around Stanberry, stating that Elza Ackert Walker, father of Melvin J.

(Executor) Deed MemorialMay 1813A memorial of an indented deed of conveyance dated May 1813 was made between Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, daughters and only children and co-heiresses of John Gerrard late of Curristown, County Westmeath, spinsters, of the one part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the county of Meath, clerk, executor of Robert Waller, late of Allenstown aforesaid, deceased, of the second part, and George Thompson of Clonskeagh Castle in the county of Dublin, Esq. of the third part.

Ireland’s memorial deeds are handwritten, and the microfilmed copies are often difficult to read. Additionally, we are uncertain, in some instances, that we have identified the correct townland. In earlier times, how the name of a townland was spelled depended upon how the initial scribe heard the name pronounced, and then how future scribes interpreted what was written. As a result, the names and spellings of many Irish townlands were spelled differently from deed to deed, book to book and year to year.

Attempts to standardize the spelling of Ireland’s townlands began around the turn of the 20th century. A townland’s Barony did not always remain constant, either. Changes were made as populations grew. Our own transcription that follows attempts to identify the correct townlands mentioned in the deed and spell them in the current (2020) standard form. Our placement of quotation marks around a townland’s name means we remain uncertain about our selection of the correct townland, or have used the spelling as we saw it in the deed because we couldn’t find a good guess.

In the case of this specific 1813 deed, the microfilmed copy was fairly easy to read. One of the townlands, however, the townland we have decided might now be called “Kill”, was spelled five different ways in the seven times it was mentioned in the deed. Three times it was spelled “Kilballbragh”, and once each it was called “Kilballbrack”, “Kulballbrack”, “Kilbellbragh” and “Killbellrath”.

“Kill” was the townland we determined was a likely candidate to choose as our mystery townland for two reasons. Our first reason is that in Griffith’s Valuation of 1854, the townland of Kill is shown as contiguous to the townland of Calliaghstown, which is shown as contiguous to Rathmore, the other two townlands mentioned in this 1813 deed, and the second reason is that the Immediate Lessor of Kill in Griffith’s Valuation of 1854 was George Thompson, the name of the man to whom the lands were transferred by this 1813 deed. Our transcription follows, and we welcome suggestions and corrections:

Reciting that by indenture of 13 November 1764, Robert Rochfort Earl of Belvedere devised and set to Samuel Gerrard of Curristown all that part of the towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill containing 508 acres more or less, situate, lying and being in the county of Westmeath. To hold to the said Samuel Gerrard, his heirs and assigns, from the 7th of November then last, for the lives of John Gerrard, Thomas Gerrard and Samuel Gerrard, sons of the said Samuel Gerrard, with a covenant for perpetual renewal on the full of each life at the yearly rent of £404 payable half yearly as therein mentioned.

And also reciting that by indenture bearing date the 2nd of March 1772 and made between the said Samuel Gerrard, then of Liscartan, of the first part, John Gerrard, eldest son and heir apparent of the said Samuel of the second part, and the Reverend John Wynne and Hannah (Wynne) Gerrard, his daughter, of the third part, that the said Samuel Gerrard, in consideration of a marriage then to be had between the said John Gerrard and the said Hannah Gerrard, and also in consideration of the marriage portion of the said Hannah Wynne, had assigned to the said John Gerrard as a provision for him, all that part of the towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill with their appurtenances thereunto belonging. To hold unto the said John Gerrard, his heirs and assigns, for the lives of him, the said John Gerrard, Thomas Gerrard and Samuel Gerrard with the covenant for perpetual renewal as therein mentioned.

And reciting that the said John Gerrard, for the considerations therein mentioned, did devise the said lands and premises unto the said John Wynne, to hold to the said John Wynne, his executors, administrators or assigns, for the term of 99 years in trust to the intent and purpose that the said John Wynne, his executors, administrators or assigns should receive the rents and profits of the said lands and there such to pay the said Hannah Wynne one annuity or yearly sum of £100 during her life, and also reciting that the said John Gerrard, on or about the 24th of November1780, made and published his last will and testament and thereby devised unto his daughters, the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, all his estate and interest in the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill to be equally divided between them, share and share alike, with such benefit of survivorship as therein mentioned.

And also reciting that by indented deed bearing date the 23rd of December 1780 the said John Gerrard did assign and make over unto Robert Waller of Allenstown in the county of Meath the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill in trust to permit and suffer, after payments of the rent and of the annuity of £100 to the said Hannah Gerrard, the issue male and female of the said John Gerrard on the body of the said Hannah Wynne to receive the rents, issues and profits of said lands as co-partners and tenants in common, share and share alike, and to the heirs of their respective bodies.

And also reciting that the said Robert Waller was then dead and that the said Mungo Henry Waller was his executor and personal representative.

And also reciting that by indenture dated the 4th of June 1800 the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard renewed the lease of the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill with the Honorable William Leeson in whom the estate and interest of the said Robert, Earl of Belvedere became legally vested by adding the life of the said Maria Gerrard to the said term in the removal of the said John Gerrard, deceased, and reciting that the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard were all unmarried and that they attained their ages of 21 years, and that they being desirous of disposing of said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill had agreed to sell and convey to the said George Thompson for the considerations therein after mentioned.

The deed witnessed that the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, for and in consideration of the sum of £2,000 to them in hand paid at or before the perfection of the said deed, and also in consideration of 5 shillings to the said Mungo H. Waller in hand paid, they, and each of them, did grant, bargain, sell, assign, transfer and make over to the said George Thompson, in his actual possession by virtue of a bargain to him made, and to his heirs and assigns, all that and those the said parts of the said towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill, situate in the county of Westmeath with all and singular the rights, members and appurtenances thereto belonging or in anywise appertaining. To hold to the said George Thompson, his heirs and assigns, for and during the natural lives and life of the said Thomas Gerrard, Samuel Gerrard and Maria Gerrard, and the survivor of them, and for the lives of such other persons as shall forever be added thereto by virtue of the covenant for perpetual renewal in the original lease of said lands, contract subject, nevertheless, to the rents and covenants in the original lease mentioned.

The said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard did covenant that they had good right, full power, and lawful and absolute authority to make the said conveyance to the said George Thompson, and that they did not do, commit or suffer to be done any act, matter or thing to charge or encumber the said lands, and present but that the same was freely discharged from all encumbrances whatsoever except said annuity of £100 payable to the said Hannah Wynne as herein before mentioned, and of the said George Thompson, his heirs and assigns, paying the rent and performing the covenants in the original lease thereof contained, might peacefully and quietly hold and enjoy the said lands and premises.

The memorial was executed, signed and sealed by Maria, Hannah and Elizabeth Gerrard, and witnessed by Thomas Thompson and Michael Reilly. It was registered on 18 May 1813.5
(Purchaser) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Mungo was a participant, and also the purchaser, on a Memorial deed dated 29 April 1814 that included Eleanora Anne Potterton, otherwise Hinds, and her husband Thomas Potterton of Ballaghtalion, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds of Trim, County Meath, widow and mother of Eleanora Anne, Martha Hinds of Trim, spinster, daughter of Sarah, and John Hinds of the City of Dublin, gentleman and only son of Sarah of Trim of the second part, Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of Eccles Street in the City of Dublin, widow, John Small of Rutland Square in the City of Dublin, Esq. and Catherine (Gerrard) Small, his wife, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow of the third part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the County of Meath, clerk of the fourth part, and Thomas Hinds of Newtown in County Kildare, Esq. of the fifth part, made a Memorial of an indentured deed agreement. The deed began with a review of four pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harpur, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small, and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint. The deed and Memorial was signed and witnessed by each of the parties involved on various dates, and was registered on 4 May 1814.1
