Walter's father abandoned his family soon after Walter's birth and his mother divorced his father prior to her death in 1900.

In 1900, 5 months after his mother's death, Walter is living with the William Gunn family in Vermillion County, IL. He is listed as "orphan". Walter's brother Robert was taken in by another family in Brown County, IN. Interestingly, their father was also orphaned as a child.

Walter was arrested for boarding a moving train in Tipton, and sent to Boy School in 1911.
