I have him married to Florence McClain in Concordia, cloud Co., KS. Information from my aunt that knew Walter as a child. His father remarried and his wife did not want Walter, so he was passed around to different families. He lived with my GGGrandmother and also with my Aunt's parents. His father's wife also had a child from previous marriage. Both boys were passed around. I show that Walter had a son, Raymond. He died in Grand Island, NE. I have a picture of Walter if you are interested.
The following is the obit. of Walter's father.
