Helton Rutherford Walker - Captain   
Helton Rutherford Walker enlisted in the 48th TN in Nov 1861, and was one of the few men still with the 48th at the final surrender after the Battle of Bentonville in NC. He was in Co D of thte 48th as a private, and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Fort Donelson. He was held, with numerous others of his regiment, at Camp Douglas in Illinois as a prisoner of war. In Sept 1862 they were exchanged and returned to active Confederate duty. When that portion of the 48th TN reorganized, he was elected Captain of Co G, under Corporal Voorhies. From this time there were essentially two regiments of the 48th: the one under Nixon (those not taken at Donelson), and the one under Voorhies (reorganized after release from prison camp. Helton Rutherford Walker was the son of Elijah Walker and Matilda McMurry, of Dickson County TN. He married Esther Elizabeth Thornton of Hickman Co TN, and enlisted from Hickman County. After the war, Helton Rutherford Walker and Esther Elizabeth (Thornthon) Walker moved to Howell Co MO (1872), where they remained and raised their family. They homesteaded near Mountain View, MO, and donated the ground for Walker Chapel Church and Cemetery from their homestead. The church, while not active continues to be well-maintained, and hosts a homecoming each year. Descendants of Helton Rutherford Walker continue to be buried in its little cemetery.
