Deborah,

I will attach some copies of the 1910 through 1930 census for Johson Co. TN that I believe show your Walter. In 1910 you can see a Walter, son of John and Ellen age 4, in 1920 this son seems to now be named Brownlow and a family with a 9 y.o. Lissie Arnold lives nearby., in 1930 Brownlee is still with this parents and now a Lissie Walker is listed as his wife and there appears to be two children (Maggie and Coy). Brownlow and Lissie were married at the age of 16 and 14. I saw an obit on jctcuzins.com for a Brownlow Walker but I can't get to that page any longer.

Hope this helps,

John
