Paul Walters' Death in the South
After a month spent in the effort to locate Paul Walters, the
soldier son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Walters, the anxious parents have
received the information that he died in a southern camp some time ago.
Paul had been transferred to Chattanooga, from Camp Forest, Lytle,
Georgia, but the parents had no knowledge of the change. Hearing
reports of his death, the parents have been endeavoring to obtain the
facts. The young soldier was twenty-five years of age, and was born in
Washington township, Johnson county. He was called to the front July
30. The bereaved family resides in Sharon township - those surviving
Paul are his parents, three sisters and six brothers, Flo, Minnie,
Esther, Henry, Jesse, Roy, Ivan, Elias and Emory. To the father,
mother, sisters and brothers, the county extends heartfelt sympathy. A
telegram from camp, received by Schneider Brothers, states that the
remains left Chattanooga yesterday. The body is expected here later in
the week. Burial will take place in Iowa City.
Friends of Paul Walters grieve to hear of his untimely death which at
last has been confirmed. Mr. Walters was well known in this community.
His brother Henry, who is now in France is reported to have gone "over
the top" three times in recent battles and came back unharmed.
