Birth: 1861
Death: 1891

Walter's parents were Andrew Johnson McCreary and his mother was Margaret S (Sturgeon) McCreary. He attended Buchtel College (now the University of Akron) and worked as a bookkeeper while attending classes. On 10/23/1886 he was initiated into the Ohio Epsilon Chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. He was reported to have died on 6/8/1891 at Fairview, PA by the General Headquarters of the fraternity in Oxford, OH.

In the 1870 US Federal Census he is listed as 5 years old as of 6/15/1870 which would make his year of birth either 1865 or 1866.
