Walter Neff is the fourth child of Jesse S. P. Bolsinger and Irene Bell McCormick. (see parent links for siblings names and dates.)
Walter married Mary Mechtildes (May) Brown on 7 Aug 1892. She was the daughter of Patrick N. Brown and Charolotte O'Hara. They had eight children; Patrick Neff (b. 16 Sep 1903-12 Oct 1974), Inez Helen, (Betsey), (abt. 1905-), Charolotte Marie (abt. 1906-), Alice Sue, (abt. 1907-), Thomas R., (1909-), Edward (abt. 1912-), Hugh Conrad (abt 1916-), and Sarah (abt 1917-). Walter was a highly skilled plummer by trade for about fifteen years. He and his brother shared what had been his father's business in 1896, until 1903. His father-in-law had been the Proprietor of the Central Hotel in Ebensburg. Walter and his brother-in-law, Hugh Brown, took over the Hotel in a joint proprietorship in 1903. Walter was doing this at the time when a biography of him and his linage was written in the book, History of Cambria County, Pennsylvania, by Henry Wilson Storey. (See Vol3 pages 505-507.) Walter and May were divorced sometime before the 1930 census. Family said there may have been another marriage and children to a woman in Ohio. Five years later, after the census, his obit in the Ebensburg Tribune reported that he had shot and killed himself in his brother's plumbing business. Ill health was cited as the cause.
