grandparents

anyone with info on my grandparents, mr and mrs john walker of washington, dc who both died in the knickerbocker fire, would be greatly appreciated

Carrie Pessou

I just found your posting about the name change for Carrie Pessou. I have been researching the Knickerbocker Theatre Disaster for many years and really appreciate the information you provided and the Find A Grave information. This explains why I was never able to find any information about Carrie "Pesson."

John Walker Lambert and Agnes Henritze Walker

Mr. Walker:

I just saw your 3/21/13 posting on the GenDisaster website about your grandparents, John and Agnes Walker. I have been researching the Knickerbocker Theatre Disaster for many years and have a lot information about the Walkers. I would be happy to share what I have with you if you will provide your email address and/or mailing address.

Have you been in contact with Terry McCraken and Barbara Henritze yet? They are the Walker and Henritze family researchers.

Hope to hear back from you.
