George Isaac Walls moved to Lakeland from Westmoreland County, VA at the turn of the 20th century, ca. 1900. He married Hattie Dyce on November 18, 1904 at Embry AME Chapel, one of the first marriage services held there. The house they built in 1911 on Navahoe street still stands today. This image of him dates to 1915. He died in 1916. He was the father of George, John, Anderson, and Mary Weems and related to the Giles and Randall families. Many direct descendants through Anderson and Mary presently reside in Lakeland.
