As a child he lived with his married sister, Mrs William Grieve, who
lived on the 2nd Concession road. He attended Pond Mills Public
School. He returned home at age sixteen because his brother William
had purchased a threshing machine and did custom-threshing for his
farmer-neighbours who needed help. His mother lived with him after
his marriage.

In the 1900 census, he is shown as born in August 1884. This makes more sense than January 1885 because his brother James was born in December 1885. In the 1885 Kansas State census done on March 1st, he is shown as being 4 months old. That would make hime born in December 1884.

In the Kansas City directory for 1910 Walter was living at 2012 Prospect Avenue. Also living there were his father William, his brother William and his sister Helen.

In the Kansas City directories from 1925 to 1935, Walter and Eva were living at 2745 Monroe Avenue. He was a salesman of various types.

From 1959 to 1973, Walter Edwin appeared in city directories for Kansas City at 7115, Askew Avenue.

His obituary reads:
The Kansas City Star, Tuesday, July 17, 1973, p. 17
"Walter E. Timms, 88, of 7115 Askew, died today as the home. He was born in Leavenworth and had lived in this area most of his life. He was a retired employee of the former Emery, Bird, Thayer Company. He leaves a sister, Miss Helen Timms, 810 Indiana, and a step granddaughter. Private graveside services will be Thursday at Mount Moriah Cemetery."

He and Elva appear in the 1920 census at 3210 East Thirteenth St. They are living with a family name "Mansel" consisting of Emmet L. age 23, his wife Margeurite age 18 and their son Emmet Jr. who was 22 months old. Walter is listed as "father in law" and Elva as "sister in law." That makes no sense. In any event, Walter is a salesman in a hardware store and she is a saleslady in a department store.

There is a Walter E. Timms in the 1930 US census. He is in Kansas City. He lives at 2745 Monroe Ave. He is 45 years old. His wife is 44. It says that he was 24 when he was first married and she was 19. What happened to their first spouses? In Walter's case, his first wife must have died or he didn't really marry her. The second portion of the marriage certificate was not filled out. See notes to marriage. Walter was a salesman for a flour mill. His brother-in-law, Aurel H. Weaver, age 53, was living with them.

His WW1 draft card says that he was a floor manager for G. Burkhauser & Co. 124 Main St., Kansas City. His wife was already Elva A. They were living at 3210 E. 13th St., Jackson City.
