Re: [PA] Lynching of Zachariah Walker

Here are 3 additional newspaper articles regarding the lynching that appeared in the Bucks Courier, PA:

(7) September 21, 1911, “Arrest Four in Lynching Probe”, p. 4; (8) September 22, 1911, “Lynch Probe Won’t Stop” p. 8; (9)“ August 23, 1911, “State Will Aid at Lynch Trials”, p. 3

Possible 1910 genealogy data:

Name: Zachary F Walker
Age in 1910: 34
Estimated birth year: abt 1876
Birthplace: Virginia
Home in 1910: 27-Wd Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania
Race: Colored
Gender: Male

Image Source: Year: 1910; Census Place: 27-Wd Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; Series: T624; Roll: 1308; Page: 96B; Enumeration District: 650; Part: 2; Line: 83.

The link below is to Senator George Allen's (VA) anti-lynching resolution of June 5, 2005 which mentions Zach Walker as being a former resident of Coatesville, VA.

1) apologizes to the victims of lynching for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation; (2) expresses the deepest sympathies and most solemn regrets of the Senate to the descendants of victims of lynching, the ancestors of whom were deprived of life, human dignity, and the constitutional protections accorded all citizens of the United States; and (3) remembers the history of lynching, to ensure that these tragedies will be neither forgotten nor repeated.
