Walter was born in 1870. He passed away in 1954.

The 1880 census digitization lists his name as "Swartwont", but after checking the image I feel comfortable keeping the usual spelling of "Swartwout"

He married Sadie Chessman. See her profile for a list of their children's names.

He passed away in 1954.
