My great grandfather's name was Garnett Walton and he married my great grandmother Dorothy Ebestchauser after my granpa was born he left and was never seen or heard from again. My grandpa would love to know if he remarried and if he might have other siblings.

I see you have Garnett in the 1910 Oregon census.

Where was the family in later years? Where and when did he marry Dorothy? What was his profession? Do you have an exact birth date?

Did he go by Garnett, or a nickname?

Do you have any other information you can add?

Until you add more information, it is difficult to trace your great-grandfather.

Did he have twin sisters?

In the 1910 census on your family tree, Garnett was born in 1903 in Oregon. His father is listed as G R WALTON and was born in Indiana, and his mother is Maud and born in Oregon. Here is a possible match in 1930:

1930 Oregon, Wasco, Ramsey, District 22, April 2

WALTON, Garth A, head, age 27, first marriage at age 23. Born Oregon, father Indiana, mother Oregon. Farm Laborer on a Dairy Farm.

WALTON, Ethel L., Wife, 23, first marriage at 20. Born Oregon, father Iowa, mother Oregon.

WALTON, Ellen Louise, daughter, 1 year 6 months. Oregon, Oregon, Oregon.

I believe this is probably the same man from the 1910 and 1930 census records:

1920 Oregon, Wasco, The Dalles, District 223

WALTON, Guy R, head, 42, Indiana, IN, IN, no occupation.
--- Maude, wife, 40, OR, OH, IA
--- Garth, son, 17, OR, IN, OR, no occupation.
--- Orna [spelling?], daughter, 13, OR, IN, OR
--- Myrtle, daughter, 13, OR, IN, OR
