I have not found any record of Caroline's marriage - several Caroline Walkers were married 1842 - 1916 but have not yet found the correct one. 16.05.2004 CW
Caroline married Robert William STEELE in 1897. (Robert William STEELE was born circa 1872, died on 17 Jan 1942 and was buried on 19 Jan 1942 in West Terrace Cemetery, Adelaide, South Australia.)
The entry from the "Marriages" page of the family bible of William and Isabella Walker reads:
"Caroline Walker & Robert William Steele was married a1897 October 13th."
