I can answer parts of your question, but not all of your question. First, I've seen your Walter Howard Mahoney in the Young County records.

Book A, Volume 1, page 9 of the Young County records
show:
Walter Mahoney marries Julian Smithhart on 12 Feb. 1858.

During this time period, they could not have married in Graham, Young County, Texas since Graham was not established until 1872. It was possible for them to have marry at either Fort Belknap or the town of Belknap.

Also, during this period, the two Indian reservations are at their height of conflict between former Indian agents and the settlers in the area along with the Chief Indian agent R.S. Neighbors.

Mrs. Ledbetter's book on the "Fort Belknap Saga" does not mention Walter Howard Mahoney in her book.

Dr. Neighbours in his biography on "Robert Simpson Neighbors" does not mention Walter Howard Mahoney in his book either.

I have the Post Returns for Fort Belknap almost transcribed and do not see Mahoney's name listed. But, his name would possibly not have been listed until he was military. The Indian agents were Federal agents but not always military men as well.

There is no mention of Mahoney in the Young County Distrist or County Court records, which begin in 1856.

Other sources you might try that I've used in my research of the Brazos River Indian Reservation and Young County are:

Comptroller Military Service records, Texas State Archives, Austin, Texas

Army Papers, Texas State Archives, Austin, Texas

Domestic Correspondence, Texas State Archives, Austin, Texas

Enlistment papers, Texas State Archives, Austin, Texas

Executive Record Books, No. 39 (III/24) and 40, (III, 26), Texas State Archives

Indian Affairs Papers, 1835-1860, Texas State Archives

Indian Office Letters Received, National Archives, Washington, DC

Indian Office Letters Sent, National Archives
