To reach cemetery from Walnut, starting at State Hwy 146, drive north
on N 20th Street for 2 miles. The cemetery will be on the west/left side
of the street in the southwest corner of the intersection with W 700th
The Walnut Cemetery was established in 1870, on approx. 10 acres of
land provided as a gift from J.A. Marshall, who was the grandfather
of Mr. Harvey McFarland of Walnut. The first burial is believed to be
a infant who died in a covered wagon that was passing through. The next
is believed to be Infant Harvey in 1869.
The cemetery is privately funded and during the years it has been neglected.
Due to the efforts of a couple of people, work has begun to see that
the cemetery is fixed up. Much of the work they are doing is volunteer,
since money is short. The cemetery is still being used for burials.
I walked and read this cemetery in the summer of 2006. This includes
all existing and legible headstone and marker readings.
