Tombstone Tuesday – June 25, 2019 – Sarah McAllister Walker


Sarah McAllister was the daughter of Fulton and Anna (LeFlair) McAllister. She was born in Lisbon, New York on June 8, 1919. Fulton and Anna had eleven children; John (1908), Ida (1910), Richard (1912), Eurette (1914), William (1916), Edward (1917), Sarah (1919), Fulton (1921), Lawrence (1921), Anna (1923), Robert (1925). In the 1920 Federal Census, Sarah is seven months old and listed with her parents and seven of her siblings in Lisbon, New York. Her father, Fulton, is a farmer. In the 1930 Federal Census, the McAllister family including Sarah, remain in Lisbon, New York.  Sarah is now ten years old. In the 1940 Federal Census, Sarah is a 21 year old living in Rensselaer Falls, New York. She is working in a Rockland State Mental Hospital as an attendant. She has been working there for 26 weeks.

She married Arlington Walker. He died in 1981. I have found no information about children at this time but it is likely due to the fact that this information is relatively recent in nature  and as a result remains private. I did look for an obit but did not locate one.


This photo is on the tombstone of Fulton and Anna McAllister. The photo was taken prior to the 1970 death of Anna LeFlair McAllister.  I found it on the Website. Thanks to Anne Cady for creating the memorials of this family and posting these photos.  Sarah, the subject of our post today is standing directly behind and between her parents.

Sarah died just eleven years ago at the age of eighty-nine years old. She is buried with the McAllister family members in Flackville Cemetery in Lisbon, New York.

Rest in Peace, Sarah!

Love, Jan

Sarah McAllister is my third cousin one times removed.
