Some time back I posted a Tombstone Tuesday photograph of Cora Pauline Walter’s tombstone.
Always curious, I did a little preliminary research at the Sumner County History and Genealogy Center, and when I didn’t find something easily, stopped, because she isn’t family.
But recently I was at the Osborne Cemetery, near Mayfield, Kansas in Sumner County, and another Walter’s tombstone caught my eye and my imagination. I wonder if they are related? Married? Siblings?
On the Stone:
Donovan L. Walters, Sr.
S Sgt Army Air Forces
World War II
March 16, 1910 (cross) Sept 24, 1972
This tombstone is located just a few feet from Cora Pauline’s stone. There is just one stone in between the two, which leads me to believe that research will show that there is some relationship between the two.
