Walter, in keeping up with the where abouts of his brother Loren, came out to the Cockrum Ranch and stayed for a short time. Later going back to the Arkansas River to work, he joined up with a government survey crew near Lamar, Colorado. Some place in the area he met and married Emma Pearl Eaton. They worked at various jobs near Springfield, Colorado and Kenton, Oklahoma. He filed on a homestead near Kenton, Oklahoma and entered into the freighting business between Clayton, New Mexico and Kenton, Oklahoma. Due to a severe flood, which washed away part of is place, he sold his homestead to Bill Hughes, a local rancher, and moved to Rosston, Oklahoma where he continued his freighting business between Buffalo, Oklahoma and Rosston for a short time. Later he built a livery stable in Rosston, maintaining extra teams and buggies to rent as well as breaking horses for other people. One of the broncs he was breaking struck a telephone pole guide wire going over backward and falling on him, crushing his chest June 11, 1915. He died from this accident and was buried at Gate, Oklahoma. When he died Pearl had two small boys, Howard and Loyd, and was expecting a third child in November. They had previously lost a daughter, Alice Viola, with diptheria who is buried at Gate, Oklahoma.
