There are 74 graves in this small Cemetery. 31 have markers, 29 that our Great Uncle Frank Skaggs put names on a map he made of the Cemetery. He owned land that the cemetery was on, and 14 that he wrote unknown. First grave was for S. B. Walker (Samuel B. Walker), died: 8 March 1878 and the last grave was E. M. Spencer (Elijah Manchester Spencer), died: 8 Jan 1929. This Cemetery back in 1878 could have been called the Walker Ceemtery due to the fact that Walker was the first person who is buried in this Cemetery.
