Longtime Walton resident battled mosquitos and more in the Spanish American War

Anthony followed his first wife to the area, but his son Charley was not born until 17 years later, and not to father and his first wife, but of his father and his first wife’s sister-in-law.
After the death of his first wife, Anthony married his brother-in-law’s wife, who had been widowed after the death of her own husband.
Charley Aultman was the product of that relationship and 8 years after his birth, he lost his father.
Today Anthony Aultman is remembered as a great man by his surviving family, and as the only Spanish-American War veteran on the Veterans Wall at the DeFuniak Springs courthouse.
