Complete through 1992; deaths and burials after that time obtained through obituaries,
may not be all inclusive. Note: many of the graves in this cemetery were for many years
marked only with a native stone. And many used the Edgemon spelling in family Bibles, land
deeds, census records, ect. Several of the headstones in Walnut Grove Cemetery were
purchased from an Edgmon who spelled his name as such and used his spelling on stones
ordered through him. Headstones purchased elsewhere simply followed suit in the spelling
of the name.
