52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – #2 Walton Thurman Green

In continuing the challenge, I have chosen my great-grandfather, Walton Thurman Green. The theme is “closest to my birthday”.

Walton Thurman Green & Sevella Virginia WestWalton’s birthday was May 2, 1890 (mine is May 10th) in Kipling, Louisiana. He died June 13, 1952 in Liberty County, Texas.

Walton’s parents were Charles Henry Green & Mary Angeline Martin. He married Sevella Virginia West about 1908. He and Sevella had 8 children that all survived into adulthood.

Walton was a machinist that worked for Romayer Gravel Company. He later farmed.

Walton, like his father, was tall, was brown-eyed and had dark hair.

I have not been able to confirm that Walton is actually buried where his death certificate states. A user on FindAGrave was unable to locate his gravesite when they looked recently. I’m hoping to look myself soon.
