Walter Francis "Pappy" Earls
Birth: Aug. 8, 1879
Bell Buckle
Bedford County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 19, 1963
Hartshorne
Pittsburg County
Oklahoma, USA

Walter "Pappy" was born in Bell Buckle, Tennessee. Walter's father was Henry Bert "Bert" Earls, a farmer born in White County, Tennessee. His mother was Frances Norton, a homemaker, and was born around Chattanooga, Tennessee.

His hertiage was predominately English.

Walter moved to Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, and got work as a railroad conductor. Which I assume was decent money back then. His son, Bert, stated that his father's house was one of the very few in Haileyville that had a phone in their house, and an icebox. It was said that whenever a neighbor needed to call family, or if an emergency ocurred, they would all go over to use Pappy's phone.

In 1914, he married Mable Hummel, originally from Nevada, Missouri.

They had three children: Frances Jennie Earls-Standerfer, Walter Hummel "Little Walter" Earls, and Bert Lewis Earls.

Walter's second child passed away from an infection that weakened his heart, in 1933, at the age of 11.

In 1944, Walter's wife, Mable, passed away. He never remarried.

He was said to be a stern man of few words, but he did work very hard to provide the best for his family.

In 1963, at the age of 83, he passed away from complications after breaking a hip.
