Couldn't find his birth on S.A cd. Index has four other children born in S.A.

The Sydney Morning Herald Thursday 25 December 1930
MCCARTHY-December 23 1930, at Blayney
(suddenly) Walton Frederick McCarthy, of Manly,
late of Grenfell, aged 73

Age at death born c1857. Trees on the global site have 1857 or 1858 Australia.
Another google online tree has born 1857 Adelaide, SA.

Attached 1930 will.

That does not seem to make sense.

Walton Frederick is married to Catherine Agnes.

don't know if you have these Dave, posting anyway..

The Grenfell Record & Lachlan District Advertiser - Monday 5th Jan 1931
Obituary
Mr. W. F. McCarthy.
It is with considerable regret we record the death at Blayney, of Mr. Walton Frederick McCarthy, formerly of Grenfell. The late gentleman had not been enjoying the best of health for some considerable time, and had been staying off and on with his son Allan at Blayney where, on 23rd December, he succumbed to a heart attack at the age of 73 years. A few years ago the late Mr. Mc Carthy suffered a double bereavement, his daughter Kathleen (Mrs. N. Butchart) and then his wife passing away within a few months of one another, from which great shock he did not recover. During his later years- at Grenfell Mr, McCarthy was not as active in the town's doings as in the earlier years, when his name figured largely in many efforts for the welfare of Grenfell and district, and the concert platform knew his ability on many an occasion. No one knew this district as perhaps he did, and by steady application to his business he gradually prospered. Mr. McCarthy was one of the band of Grenfell pilgrims to make the Kimberley trip at the time of the gold rush, the other members of the first contingent being: Alex. Meldrum, Bob Meldrum, D. Perry, Jim McFar land, Charlie Lee. The second contingent comprised: G. Dane, W. Filby, J. McLachlan, Joe Napier, senr., Joe Napier, junr., Andrew Dein, Jas. Kerr, E. Mitton, Tom Kirkpatrick, Tom Dodd, Jack Dodd, Jack Hamilton, M. S. Williams, William Paice. The late Mr. McCarthy was twice married, the sons of the first marriage surviving being Messrs. Alfred and Fred. McCarthy, the children of the second marriage being Mrs. Perdriau (Manly), Mrs. Irwin (Manly), 'Misses Eileen, Phyllis* and Joan Mc Carthy and Mr Allen McCarthy. Charlie was killed at the war. To those who mourn the loss of a good father we extend our deepest sympathy.

McCARTHY.-December 23, 1930, at Blayney (suddenly), Walton Frederick McCarthy, of Manly, late of Grenfell, aged 73.

His 2nd wife Catherine Elizabeth nee McCraig’s death – same paper Monday 18 Nov 1929
MRS. W. F. McCARTHY.
The death occurred at Manly onThursday last of Mrs. W. F. McCarthy, formerly of Grenfell, and in days gone by one of the foremost and best known citizens in the social life of the town, her interest and talents being devoted to all matters that benefited the cause of charity and the advancement of the town. The late Mrs. McCarthy was a talented pianist, and her services were eagerly sought for concerts and such like entertainments. The late Mrs. McCarthy was formerly Miss McCaig, her sister (Mrs.Horsley) and her brother (Mr.Charles McCaig) also living in Grenfell. One son, Charles, was killed at the war—a fine lad whose sacrifice was keenly felt by his mother. Another son, Walton, died at Grenfell some years ago, and just recently her married daughter—Kathleen Butchart—passed away, being deeply mourned by her mother, which no doubt aggravated the attack of bronchitis from which Mrs. McCarthy succumbed. A widower and grown-up family survive—Mrs. Perdriau (Manly), Mrs. Irwin (Manly), Misses Eileen, Phyllis and Jean McCarthy, and Messrs. Cecil and Allan McCarthy, to whom we offer our deep sympathy on the death of an old and esteemed friend.

McCARTHY.—November 14, 1929, at Manly, Katherine Agnes, dearly beloved wife of Walton Frederick McCarthy, aged 68 years. R.I.P.

The Grenfell Record Tuesday 12 Feb 1918
Obituary
The death took place at the hospital on Friday afternoon of Mrs. W. F. McCarthy, jr., word of whose decease was received with deep regret by a large circle of friends, much sympathy being expressed in the community for the bereaved husband and three young children. Mrs McCarthy was taken ill about four weeks ago, being later on admitted to the hospital suffering from typhoid fever, to which she succumbed, at the early age of 26 years. Deceased was the youngest daughter of Mrs. McLeod, of Warraderry. The funeral was on Saturday, and was largely attended ; Father Fleming officiated, and at the conclusion of the service said that usually he made no address at a graveside, having done so only once previously in his twenty years of priesthood, but the sadness connected with the death of her around whose grave they were that afternoon assembled compelled him to make some reference to the late Mrs McCarthy, whose sweet disposition endeared her her to all who knew her, to whom her early death came as a great shock ; he felt sure that all joined in extending heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved young husband and children, and the sorrowing mother and relatives,

and son's death:
MCCARTHY WALTON A 2971/1920 WALTON F - CATHERINE E - GRENFELL

Thanks Val.

I didn't have the 1920 death.

Parents married 26 Dec 1884 in Qld.

Looks as though Qld. index no longer accepts the wildcard character *

He must have been born before 1893.

I can't find a birth for Walton/Walter junior in Qld. or NSW.
