Looking for ancestral information on Walter Smith. Here's what I've found so far. Born 9 Dec 1889 in New York (per census) Married Caroline Kostbar (1906 in NY [per census] - 1993) on 25 May 1921 Moved to NJ after 1930 Died 20 May 1963 in Manalapan, Monmouth, NJ Children: Howard H, Edward Ariel (1923-1994), Newton D (1925-?), Frances M (1929-?) Records Found: 1930 Federal Census, Social Security Death Index, World War II Draft Registration Card, Obituary in the 21 May 1963 edition of the Red Bank Register, picture of gravestone in NJ Notes: According to family lore, Walter or an ancestor immigrated to the US from England or Scotland due to a family dispute or legal trouble. At the time of immigration, he changed his name & refused to divulge it to his family.
