I have Walton's middle name as Chanlon, as recorded in his Bible. I also have Walton's middle name as Chandler, as recorded in the 'Book of Remembrance' genealogy compiled by Exie Gurganious Wootten, who was Walton's sister. Walton's appointment letter as a fireman in Warren, Ohio, also lists his middle name as Chanlon. That is the name I use. I have been unable to find a birth certificate for Walton (online). Chandler certainly seems to be more reasonable than Chanlon, but I have to go with what is in his Bible & the appointment letter.

Walton was a coal miner in Vandegrift, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania, but hated the work/job (notes in Ruth Gurganious Moretz' handwriting in possession Roger Clark Moretz as of 2009). He then moved his family to Warren, Trumbull, Ohio where he applied for and was accepted as a fireman. I have the letter of his acceptance and a picture of the 1926 Warren Fire Department. Walton wrote a poem about The Fireman which was published in the local paper. I have a copy of that.

I have Walton's Bible, and his name is written as: Walton Chanlon Gurganious. The Bible also contains the dates of his marriage and the births of each of his children. Walton was my maternal grandfather.

Mary Abigail Clark was the sister to my great-grandfather. I have some photos of her, her parents and siblings. Please contact me as I would be very interested in locating her descendants.

Sincerely
