Both have streets named after them in Savannah .

His supply wouldn't even land him in the top 10 of Baseball Hofers. At least he will never be forgotten due to one of the most populous counties in Georgia being named for him.

Not counting those with no known signatures, thus being impossible, it would have to be Buck Ewing. The only known signature is on his will.

Are there any true specimens of Moses "Fleetwood" Walker known? If so, they must be few and far between.
