Surnames: Covert, Carter
Here is the info I have:

Walter Covert born about 1876 in Canada or NY. Is parents were Charles Ashley (or A.C.) Covert and Alida Carter. Between 1900-1906 Walter and his family moved from Illinois to Uvalde, Texas.
In 1908 there is a snippet in the San Antonio paper about a dance in Uvalde and Walter Covert gave a contortion act at that dance. From what my grandfather knew (which wasn't much) his Dad was an actor/contortionist who abandoned the family. Also in 1910 Walter's wife, Bertha, changed her last name (as well as her two sons last names) to Carter - and that is the last name they had from then on. In 1920 Bertha is in the census as living in San Antonio, and she was listed as a widow....her two sons lived with her Fred Eugene, and Joel Myrick.

Sidenote, the event in Uvalde, the entertainment was by the Woodsmen of the World.
Also in Illinois he was in the laundry business....whether he did that in TX I don't know.

Also I haven't found much on his dad, Charles Ashley (A.C. As he is referred to sometimes) Covert. I'm not sure if he made it to TX with his sons or not.

Let me know if you need anymore info and thanks so much again!!!!
