I too have a Walter Cremeans in my family but his fate is unknown. My Walter was my grandfather's brother. I believe he lived in or near Huntington, WVa. I was told by my mother several years ago that he was married to a woman whose name may have been Lilian. She might have been his third wife. The story is that he left the house one day and never returned. It was thought to be odd because he and his wife had just had a baby and he appeared to be very happy. I can't help but think that the Walter in the article could possibly be the one I'm looking for. Any additional info would be appreciated. Thanks.
