+2 votes

Looking for more information about Walter Henry Wilkin(s), a tailor, in Marinette, Wisconsin.  He last appeared in the 1903 Marinette Directory at 2714 Hall St.  Did he die?  Did he leave Elizabeth?

He was married to Elizabeth Shores in Saugatauk, Michigan in 1889.  Elizabeth appears in later Marinette directories as a housekeeper.  In the 1910 census, she indicates she is married (for 20 years).  No sign of Walter.  Elizabeth died in Marinette in 1913 and was buried in a family plot in Mackinac Co., Michigan.  No mention of Walter in the obituary.

Walter was born in 1859 in Newark, Ohio to John Henry Wilkins and Permelia Myers.  He also lived in Columbus, Ohio about 1880.
