The business and personal papers in the Benjamin Walker collection primarily record the business and social activities of Benjamin Walker in connection with relatives, business associates, and acquaintances, all residing in the towns of Taunton and Dighton in Bristol County, Massachusetts.
The documents in this collection concern the Wyandot tribe who departed Ohio in 1843, relocating in what became Kansas Territory. Most of the collection consists of letters to and from prominent members of the Wyandots who relocated from Ohio, including William Walker, Jr., his brother Joel, John W. Grey Eyes, and Wyandot Indian Agent John Johnston.
The Walker family papers are those of one of the first African American homesteading families in Stafford County, Kansas. The family for several decades owned a successful farm.
