Walker Cemetery
White County,

This cemetery is located about a half-mile west of Walker. This community is approximately six miles south of Searcy. Coming
from Searcy on Highway 11, the road makes a 90-degree turn east toward Griffithville. Turn right onto Lewis Lane and travel about
a half-mile; the cemetery is on the right side of the road. (Claude Johnson, former president of the White County Historical Society,
in his book "A Humorous History of White County," had a word of caution for travelers going to Griffithville. "It is best to start from
Des Arc," he wrote, "as the road is not nearly as crooked as the one from Searcy. The road from Searcy has about 14 sharp curves
in it, and is believed to have been laid off by a drunk man chasing a rattlesnake.")
George Walker, who came to this area shortly after the Civil War, donated the land for Walker Cemetery and is buried here.
