Walter D. Carroll was born on January 4, 1894 in Carter County, Kentucky to Daniel Boone Carroll and Amanda Simmons Carroll. He was the 13th of 15 children. Daniel and Amanda settled on Everman Creek and built a cabin where they raised all of their children. Walter married Hattie Smith at the age of 23 on April 14, 1917 in Carter County, Kentucky. He then went off to war, fighting with Company B of the 131st Infantry NG. He served in the United States Army from October 2, 1917 to June 3, 1919. While fighting overseas, he was wounded on October 10, 1918. A fellow private had been wounded and was lying in an open area exposed to enemy fire. Two men had died trying to save the private. Walter became the third man to try and was wounded in the left shoulder and back before he could reach the private. He was later cited for gallantry. When he returned home after the war, Walter moved his wife to the property that his father, Daniel, had owned. They built a home on the property and lived there while they raised their seven children:Thelma Marie, Laura May, Reuben Daniel, Walter, Harold Douglas, Betty Louise, and Raymond Leanuel. On July 24, 1967, at the age of 73, Walter died at the V.A. Hospital in Huntington, West Virginia.
