(Walter Corey Stone: c. 1881; 1913; 1943)
Eli T.’s oldest son, Walter Corey, was my great-grandfather, and unfortunately, I have very little information about him. I do know that he was born in Syracuse, NY, in either 1876 or 1877 (family notes say “1876”, the 1880 census record on the LDS site says “1877”). I have family notes that state he died in 1952, but I don’t know where he passed away, nor where his body was interned. My guess is he passed away in one of three places in Texas: Harlingen, Kingsville, or Kerrville, as I know my great-grandparents had settled for short periods of time in several of those towns. I don’t have information to the specific dates of either his birth or death. When Walter was 5 or 6 years old, his family moved to De Soto, Missouri. Walter spent the remainder of his childhood in De Soto. Hopefully at some point I’ll have more information to post on items such as his occupation, etc.
