Walter E. Walker was the eldest of three surviving siblings born in Giles, TN to Richard Marion Walker and Mary Lou (nee: Harwell). At some point ca. 1920, he began using William as his given name. Death certificate (1 Mar 1868 - 21 Jun 1947) filed under William Elliridge Walker whereas the death record has Elleridge as the middle name. No explanation for the disparities but the informant was his grandson, W. E. Harwell who incorrectly identified the father as Jack Walker. Walter wed Ada D. (nee: Smith) ca. 1891 possibly in Ellis, TX? Ada predeceased her husband (21 Feb 1869 - 11 Dec 1944) and the informant was their daughter, Mrs. W. C. Worley aka Kirtley Donnell (nee: Walker) (3 Sep 1895 - 20 Aug 1947). Kirtley had one surviving sibling: Hazel Taivet (nee: Walker) Harwell (22 Sep 1895 - 27 Jan 1917). The informant, W. C. Worley brother-in-law, got this certificate "right" but erred on his wife's birthdate. Kirtley's birth was closer to 1891 vs 1895.
