Walker Cemetery (DeVaughn Cemetery)
Walker, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 10' 43"N, Lon: 81° 23' 01"W

Contributed by Teresa Fordyce, Mar 30, 2003, last edited Jul 22, 2007 [s82c43@verizon.net]. Total records = 236.

Take Rt. 47 East out of Parkersburg for about 10 miles. Turn left onto Walker Road. Follow Walker Road into the town of Walker, pass the post office and go until you cross the bridge. Turn right just after the bridge. There is a sign for the cemetery at the gravel road. Follow this gravel road around the hill to the right. It dead ends at the cemetery.

This is a community cemetery with public access. It is still active and well maintained. In addition to the transcription, there were 4 graves marked only with rocks or fieldstones.

The cemetery was first called the DeVaughn Cemetery when it was started because it was use primarily by the DeVaughn family. After it was made a community cemetery it’s name was changed to the Walker Cemetery.

This is a complete reading of all existing headstones when I walked and transcribed this cemetery in Oct of 2002.
