Walter Harold ANDREWS
Walter died in San Bernardino County on 31 JAN 2000 at age 87, so he was born about 1913, presumably in California. The SSDI says he was born 24 MAY 1912 and that his last known address was Los Angeles. The California Birth Index confirms his birth date, adds that he was born in Los Angeles County, and says his mother's maiden name was NELSON. The best candidate in the 1920 census is Walter ANDREWS, age 7, son of Ellen A. ANDREWS, a married woman living without her husband or any other children in Los Angeles. She was working as a nailed in a box factory. She was from Sweden. Walter and his father were from CA.
The 1930 census shows Walter H. ANDREWS, age 17, born in CA to a father from CA and a mother from Sweden, as a prisoner in the LA City Jail.
Walter had a rough life as a young man and died without a family to claim his body. Can you add any information to his story?
