Walter lived at 3rd and Hill in Louisville in the cleanup from the 37 flood.
Sue Foote and Scott Parks were both born while their families lived at the home farm.
Walter lived in Brandenburg in the late 30s. Walter's dog, Nuisance, went with Jack on his paper route.
Walter and Amanda were in the process of divorce when Jack and Alice married.
Walter gave Jack and Alice a nice matching couch and chair with a gray fabric covering.
The Brown family were renting the farm house in 1941 when the house burned. Mrs. Brown was from the Shake family. Irene lined a box with her blue velvet dress for a coffin for the Brown boy who died in the fire. Walter and Irene were living in the tenant house at that time.
Irene was a widow from Danville. Irene's nieces, Bobby Jean and Sandra, lived with them. Walter and Irene lived in an apartment at Ma's house and Bobby Jean went to school in Brandenburg.
When Irene and Walter divorced, Irene went back to Danville and then out to California.
Irene and Elizabeth Hagen were good friends and went to California together.
