  • Notes 
    • Walter was born in New York, where he was reared, educated and married. In the spring of 1844, with his wife and two children, he started in a two-ox wagon, for Ohio. He located at Copley Center, where he followed his trade of shoemaker for many years. He then purchased a farm near Montrose, but not having been accustomed to an agricultural life, in three years he sold his farm and returned to Copley Center, where he resumed work at his trade. In 1854 he again tried farming, purchasing a farm of 118 acres, south of Copley, on which he lived until 1883, when he sold out and removed to Akron, where he died.

      Walter was a participant with the Children's Aid Society of New York (CAS). Albert Haas's mother brought Albert to the CAS for placement during a family crisis. CAS found the five-year-old a home with Walter in Summit county, Ohio. Three years later, Mrs. Haas went to Ohio to retrieve her son. Once home again in New York, Albert kept up a correspondence with his foster parent. In 1866, when he was eleven, Albert and his mother decided that Ohio would be a better place for him than New York. Walter Scudder gladly took the boy back. Albert wrote to CAS soon after returning to Ohio, saying that he was happy, in school, and planned to stay with Scudder until he came of age.
