JOHN WALKER FAMILY BIBLE RECORD
Mrs. K. B. Mitchell, a professional genealogist of Sparta, TN sent the following copy of the John Walker Bible record, “which I took from what remains of the old Bible.” In a field in Wild Cat Cove there used to be some unmarked graves that were of the Rose and Jarvis families. I visited there recently, but found no markers of Rose or Jarvis or Walker. Most gravestones were carved out of sandstone, and engraving them had to be done by hand. Many of the oldest stones bear no inscriptions.“Burtis Walker married Catharine Price – her sister was Sarah Poteet, so that is why their names and dates are in the Walker Bible. This George Price, father of Catharine Price Walker, was born in DC, so his will states, also his gravestone.”
