Lorine, I'd be happy to share what I have collected. I don't know that I can help you much on Walter, however. I have mostly researched the line through Walter's sister Isabelle. This is my brother-in-law's family. I do have James Smethurst's(Walter's grandfather) civil war pension file and would be happy to make a copy of it for you. Most of the rest I have is from the census and some marriage records, etc. I've sent for. If you send me your email address I can send you a word doc. of what i've compiled.
