I know you have contacted me privately, but I thought I would post to this county in case there may be more descendants who read this information.
In 1820 Walter was on the census of Warren. Co. MS. The family also has records in Hinds and Claiborne Cos. MS. His parents were Celia Thompson and William Strother. His second wife was Prudence Geiser(Yeiser, in some records, but this is probably due to the penmanship being misread).
Walter had siblings Thompson married Mary Geiser or Yeiser, Elizabeth married John Duncan, Ann (my line) married Reuben B. Jones, Emily married T. Bethea , and Celia Ann who married 1. John Weatherall 2. W. P. Lowery 3. a Smith, and Adeline who married a Caskey.
In 1845 Walter bought Gaines Ferry in Sabine Co. TX, the most important crosssing into TX. He and Thompson were in the 1850 census there. His mother died in Hinds Co. MS in 1852.
