John H. Walner

M, (7 April 1862 - 5 July 1905)
John H. Walner
     John H. Walner was born on 7 April 1862 at Colbert, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, USA. He was the son of William M. Walner Dr. and Susan Carter. John H. Walner married Frances Lulubelle Stewart on 25 January 1883 at Indian Territory, USA. John H. Walner appeared on the census of 1900 at Twp 2, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, USA. The census lists the family as: John Walner, apr 1862, 38, married 17 years, born IT, father born VA, mother born IT, Capitalist; wife Lulu, aug 1866, 38, married 17 years, 5 children, 4 living, born IT, father born TN, mother born IT; dau Susie V., aug 1883, 16, born IT; dau Acca, feb 1886, 14, born IT; dau Julia, apr 1888, 12, born IT; son Hugh R., dec 1892, 7, born IT; nephew Robert, nov 1879, 20, born IT, father born IT, mother born TX, attend school; nephew James, Jul 1885, 14, born IT, father born IT, mother born TX, attend school.. He died on 5 July 1905 at Wynnewood, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, USA, at age 43. John Henry Walner was the son of William M. and Susan Carter Walner. William Walner was a medical doctor. He was born in Cumberland Co. Virginia in 1816. John was born near Colbert, I.T. Oklahoma on April 7, 1862. He was educated at the Baptist Academy at Fort Smith, Ark, but owing to ill health, was obliged to leave school at an early age. In 1878, he established a mercantile business at Cherokee Town, Garvin Co, I.T. He freighted his goods from Caddo to Cherokee Town. John secured a charter from the Chickasaw Government to operate a ferry boat on the Washita River. He did this for a year or so and then moved to Wynnewood where he entered the mercantile business. This store was first located in a tent. In 1879, he married Lule Bell Stewart (b. Nov 7, 1866 d. May 6, 1960). Lule`s father was Wiley Stewart, a Choctaw Indian, born in Rhea County, East Tenn., in 1824. Her mother was Nancy Folsom, born March 17, 1830 in Mayhew, Mississippi. She moved with her parents to the Indian Territory when she was three years old. She was a granddaughter of Nathaniel Folsom and Peter Pitchlyn of the Hayah-pak-tuk-kalo clan of the Choctaw Tribe, which made her royal blood. Their children were, Verna Susan "Sukie", Acca E., Julia H., Hugh Ryan, and Grace Pauline. Verna "Sukie" (b. Dec 1, 1883 d. Feb 25, 1977) married Edmond Joseph Mitchell at Wynnewood, Oklahoma. John Walner was a United States Indian Police Officer and a Deputy United States Marshal who had killed several men in the line of duty. The Indian Police were as a group, some of the toughest, bravest men who ever wore a badge. All were appointed by the U.S. Indian Commissioner and were hand picked because of their personal character and bravery. The men of Wynnewood called him "The Bull of the Woods". He died from a knife wound at the age of forty years. (taken from the Garvin Co Indian Pioneer Papers and from a story by Mike Towers). NGC. He was buried at Oaklawn Cemetery, at Wynnewood, Garvin County, OK, USA.

     This story about John H. Walner and his father William M. is reported on the RootsGenWeb site.

     At Cherokee Town there was Dr. Shirley’s store, a log house made into a hotel operated by Charley Stewart, a stage barn Noel Lael’s blacksmith shop, and two or three houses. Two miles east, Dr. Shirley built a big, rambling log house which served as head quarters for his farm and ranch, and agriculture enterprise which employed 20 to 30 men year round. After Shirley’s death in 1875, his home and store were sold to Doctor William Walner, an early day physician active in the Choctaw Nation. Dr. Walner turned the whole operation over to his son, John Walner.
     When the Santa Fe completed its construction in 1887, the new railroad bypassed Cherokee Town as the tracks lay on the west side of the Washita River. This meant all the goods and mail scheduled for Fort Sill and points west, would no longer be shipped to Caddo, and would instead go to the new Paul’s Valley depot. With the driving of a single spike, the whole eastern half of the government road lost its usefulness. Cherokee Town literally moved south to the new depot of Wynnewood.
     The old Walner/Shirley home had burned, and a new home of planed lumber had replaced it. John
Walner had oxen hitched to each corner of the house and ‘walked’ the entire structure four miles south, to the new town site. The rest of the homes and houses followed suit, dotting Wynnewood with the old Cherokee Town structures. One government barn was hauled across the river to Paul’s Valley, and the stage stand, a small cabin, remained and was occupied by the Harmon family when they arrived in the valley. John Walner, thinking he was facing the home south, actually lined it up facing what would become the alley. Rather than go to the trouble of turning the house, Walner built a porch and facade on the rear of the home so it would appear to be the front door. Ever after, folks enter the Walner home through the kitchen. I think it’s kind of homey myself, but then I’m just a man. The women of the Walner household were embarrassed to death to receive guests at the kitchen door. (Source: Mike Tower, Traders along the Washita, Chronicles of Oklahoma, Spring, 1987)
     But, Charley Strickland had another friend--John Walner. Walner was a United States Indian Policeman and former Deputy United States Marshal who had killed several men in the line of duty.
     Now for you to understand, I have to say a word about the Indian Police. The Indian Police were as a group, some of the toughest, bravest men who ever wore a badge. All were appointed by the United States Indian Commissioner and were hand picked because of their personal character and bravery. And, all were publicly charged with..."tracking down evil doers and make themselves a terror to them"...with standing orders to shoot to kill if the criminal resisted. Tradition has it that the Indian Police commission was for life, and the members of this elite force behaved like knights of the round table in that whenever, and wherever, they met law breakers they deal with them. In addition, Walner was one of those men who just didn’t take any guff off of anyone and who never gave up in a fight. The bad men of the Valley were afraid of Walner and called him “the bull of the woods,” a recognition that Walner was king pin when it came to tough and aggressive. And, now Walner, the bull, was angry with Little Bill. Walner allegedly told Marshal E. H. Scrivner that the next time Lewis was in Wynnewood, that he,
Walner was going to kill him for what he’d done to Charley Strickland. Scrivner, of course, told Little Bill of Walner’s threats.
     Bill Lewis may have been a nasty little killer of men, but he was in no sense of the word afraid of anything that walked, crawled, swam, or flew. Lewis’ shirttail didn’t hit his back before he was on the morning train heading south to Wynnewood and a confrontation with John Walner. Lewis arrived before noon and began cruising the town, looking for Walner, stopping first at each drug store and fortifying himself with patent whiskey in the back rooms. By the time Lewis started looking for Walner in earnest and stopped at John W. W. Mitchell’s Dry Goods Store, Little Bill was packing not only his Winchester but a snootful of bad booze as well. John Mitchell listened patiently to Little Bill’s tirade against Walner and what a tough man he, Lewis, was. Then, with more than a little gratitude, Mitchell watched as Lewis strolled across the street to Dr. Bowen’s drug store. It was then that Mitchell happened to look up and see John Walner, who had just returned to town, striding down from his hillside home with a Winchester in the crook of his arm. As Mitchell watched, Walner spotted Little Bill and cut diagonally across the street, coming to a stop below the boardwalk, directly in front of Little Bill. Lewis was standing in front of the door of the Bowen drug store when Walner casually drawled, “Heard you been looking for me, Bill?” Lewis did not speak. Instead, he started to bring his Winchester, it’s barrel pointed toward Walner, up to his shoulder. He never made it. Walner, in one fluid movement, swung his Winchester in line, and with rifle butt clamped to his side,
while his other hand steadied the barrel, fired. The heavy slug, with a full charge, fired at a short range, caught Little Bill squarely in the middle of the chest, lifting his small body clear of the board walk and through the door of the drug store. Bill was dead before his head hit the hard wood floor.
     As Scrivner said, “Walner did what he said he was going to do, and that ended the affair.”
     According to a published 4 May 1937 interview of Van Cockron, an early African American resident of Wynnewood, Van saw John kill Bill Lewis and later saw John's nephew Robert Walner kill John.
