Florence was the oldest of seven children born to Jacob and Mary McCormick Walter. She was baptized at St. Joseph's Church in Macton the same month.[1] (Her parents may have been living with her maternal grandmother, Catherine O'Grady McCormick on Lot 11, Concession 1 of Peel Township at the time of her birth.)

Florence was living with her family on their farm in Wellesley Township, Waterloo County, in 1901.[2] (Her birth year is listed as 1888 on this census.)

Florence died at age 20 and is buried in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Macton.[3][4]

Research Notes

Jacob, Mary, and Florence Walter have not been located in the 1891 Census for either Waterloo or Wellington Counties. There is a Jacob and Mary Cook, living in Berlin, Ontario, in 1891 with a 2 year old daughter Florence[5]. Could this be the Walters, with their name recorded incorrectly?
