Walter Mathew Bell registered for the draft in 1942 in Princewick, Raleigh County, West Virginia, and gave his date of birth as 19 April 1896 in Soddy, Tennessee, and the person who would always know his address as Martha Ellen Bell of Princewick, West Virginia.

In the 1900 census, Walter can be found living with his parents, Andrew Bell and Josiphine Bell, his two sisters, and his maternal grandmother, Clearcinda Chancy. Clearcinda Chancy was listed as the widowed head-of-household. Andrew Bell's birthdate is listed as January 1861 in Tennessee. His parents were both born in Tennessee. Josephine (Chancy) Bell was born October 1877 in Tennessee. Her parents were both born in Georgia. Walter's two sisters were Ellen Bell, born April 1894 in Tennessee, and Annie Bell, born February 1899 in Tennessee. Also part of the household are Myrtle Bell, born April 1885 in Georgia and a Laura L. Chancy, born March 1883 in Tennessee. I'm assuming that Myrtle is Andrew Bell's sister, and that Laura is Josiphine's sister. The census record is located here: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-267-11811-62278-37?cc=1325221
By the 1910 census, the Bell family has moved to Skelton, Raleigh County, West Virginia, and consists of Andrew, Josie, Ellen, Walter, Annie, and Pearl. Pearl was 5 years old and born in West Virginia. The 1910 census record is located here: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MPNG-3VN
I couldn't find anything on Andrew James Bell's parents.
