Evening Rose,
Thank you for your effort.

You will note I stated the only mention I find so far of a 'Rudolph  
Walter' born around 1878 is in the the St. Petersburg extractions.
 >1. St. Pete extractions: Rudolph Walter b. 1877 place/ 
Stanislawka,   father Theodor,  Mother Auguste Arnold ??<
This would place the village 'Stanislawka' in Volhynia.  I have no  
way of substantiating that this is the Rudolph Walter I seek.
I am hoping someone will say. "No. it isn't."
The abundance of people bearing the 'Walter' surname creates a  
difficulty in isolating specific ones.
Somewhere, someone will remember a Walter who was the blacksmith.

A marriage record of Rudolph and Wanda is necessary.
I have all of the Sichelberg/Sierpc microfilms on long-term hold at  
the Kirtland, Ohio Family History Center.
To date it has not proved out to be a fruitful search.

Their first child Lydia, was born December 1905.
Wanda was born 1882- She may have married somewhere between the dates
