The son of John E. Herod and Anne Leake, Walter was a blacksmith whose blacksmith shop still stands and is listed as an historical site. His draft registration information states he was of medium height, stocky build, with grey eyes and brown hair. He was only 34 years old when he died in 1919 of pneumonia caused by influenza. This was the period of time when Spanish Flu swept world-wide and killed millions of people. His death certificate states he was to be buried in Old Ebenezer Cemerery, but further records confirm he is buried at Lexington Cemetery in the same plot as his wife and two sons.
