Walter Peet Brown was the son of James A Brown (1821 - ?) and Annie Peet (1828 -?), both from England. Walter was born in London, England along with his five brothers and three sisters. All had the middle initial of P, presumably for Peet. The 1880 Census provides additional details. Walter began working for the Branch - Crookes (Saw) Company in 1872 when he was sixteen and continued to work there, as a traveling salesman, through 1893.
Walter married Emily M Miller in late 1880. Emily and Walter had two children:
- Ann Louise Baer was born in St. Louis on August 5, 1882. She was named after her two grandmothers. In 1904 she married Samuel H Baer (1/4/1876 - 12/1966). (Samuel can be found in many years of the St. Louis City Directories). Samuel and Ann had no children. Ann died in St. Louis in February of 1974.
- Emily M Brown was born in May of 1884 and was named after her mother.
