Son of Martha Stringfellow---Walter Fuller, b.1868

  of 672

Buried in a pauper grave near that of my greatuncle is one Walter Fuller, who gave his birthplace as "American", b. 1868, died Spokane County Hospital, Washington State, May 1932. Walter was the son of Zack Fuller (b. Georgia) and Martha Stringfeller (Stringfellow?) (b. Alabama). At the time of his death, Walter was a widower (his wife's name is not given) and employed as a dishwasher, perhaps in the downtown Spokane hotel in which he was living until he was hospitalized.

It is my intention to erect simple markers for Walter and all of these other hardworking men who ended up, like my greatuncle, in this block of pauper's graves at the height of the Depression. I am not asking for any help in this project.

However, remembering how hard it was to find my greatuncle, and how glad (and sad) I was to finally locate his grave, I would also just like to reconnect these men with their families. Comsequently, I would be glad to hear from anyone who may be related to Walter.
