I'd certainly be interested. I mean, after all, we have to have as much knowledge as possible if we want a comprehensive timeline.
Though I'd say it pretty much messes some of the later established events up
I'm trying to get this into a proper chart that can be used, but so far let's use something that can be quoted...WALTER'S BIRTHWalter Sullivan: Walter is abandoned at birth
Going back 34 years from the start of the games events. A baby was abandoned in room #302 of South Ashfield Heights. His life could be saved through the help of the superintendent, his parents were already nowhere to be found and the baby was given to the orphanage "Wish House". The superintendent kept the umbilical cord from back then ever since.Age 6Walter Sullivan:
Walter, wishing for his mother, commutes to South AshfieldThe Cult: Andrew becomes a guard at the Water Prison
It was this year when Andrew became a guard at the Water Prison. He meets Walter there.AGE 16South Ashfield Area: Eileen and Walter meet
It seems like when Eileen met Walter at that time, she gave him a dollAGE 18South Ashfield Area: Cynthia and Walter meet
A then 13 year old Cynthia meets Walter, who is going to the apartment by subwayBetween 18 and 19The Cult: The era of Silent Hill 1AGE 19Walter Sullivan: Walter moves to Pleasant River
Embracing the wish for revenge in his heart, Walter lead a normal everyday life. At this age he begins living in Pleasant River. AGE 24 (Walter's Death)Walter Sullivan: The Walter Sullivan Case
Upon the discovery of the Billy/Miriam incident, Walter is arrested. This case of a young brother and sister being murdered (the fact that he killed 10 people was only later discovered) was covered in the mass media as well. He commited suicide 4 days after his arrest, but actually he did not die and after several days he conducted the Ritual of Liberation in room #302.The Cult: The era of Silent Hill 2South Ashfield Area: The son and daughter-in-law of the superintendent vanish
The name of the superintendents son was James Sunderland. He was the protagonist of Silent Hill 2. He vanished together with his wife Mary 10 years ago. It is unknown to which ending of Silent Hill 2 this connects.South Ashfield Area: A suspicious man is seen at the apartment complex
About the time when news of the Walter Sullivan case were shaking society, a suspicious man was seen at the apartment complex. It is this man who is the true Walter, who turned one part of room #302 into a hidden chamber and performed the Ritual of Liberation.2 YEARS AFTER DEATHWalter Sullivan:

That's really not far from what I originally posited.
I still maintain SILENT HILL 4: THE ROOM makes the most sense taking place in 2001 given the diary. Walter says he's only allowed out of the prison on Sundays, meaning it's the only day on which he could actually visit Ashfield and write in his gothy journal.
I was not trying to imply that the timeline was far from what you suggested, but small things are important as well when trying to built a (arguably shaky) system encompassing all the games. It's impressive what you've managed to collect and I don't want to talk that down in the slightest.
The only thing really afflicted by the events would be Silent Hill 2 anyways, but it would have to be discussed what exactly was implied by placing "the era of Silent Hill 3" where it is...
And regarding that last part...what exactly do you mean with Lost Memories taking place in 1997?
