The story goes, that Walter got himself into a bit of trouble. He met another man on the run, and they agreed to swap names. Walter Elvis Horton lived his life out as John W Hickman, and visa versa. My step father's father, was Walter Elvis Horton. Is there any way I can use his birth name with his assumed name together? I can see where it would be best to use his birth name instead of his assumed name in order to trace any further into his ancestry, but would like to keep his assumed name attached to it.
