I have seen his name as Azariah Edward, researchers of this family state that his gravestone reads Azariah Edmund Walters (1842-1919). Would seem he was named for his grandfathers. He is buried at Greenview Cemetery, Reidsville, Rockingham Co, NC. The stone states he was the son of Azariah Graves Walters and Eliza Ann Payne Richardson. The stone is pictured on FindAGrave.com.
Archibald Edmund WALTERS and Mary Elizabeth RICHARDSON were married on 18 March 1868 in Rockingham County, North Carolina.211 Mary Elizabeth RICHARDSON, daughter of Robert Payne RICHARDSON and Elizabeth Newton WRIGHT, was born on 25 July 1845 in Virginia. She died on 29 November 1916 at the age of 71.
I could not find Mary in 1910. There is a Mary Walters listed as an inmate at the Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg, Virginia, age 67 [Mary was 65], b. Virginia, her parents b. VA. [This is a mental health care facility founded in 1773]

Archibald Edmund WALTERS and Mary Elizabeth RICHARDSON had the following children:
