        Note: User-submitted tombstone transcriptions; photos and obituaries sometimes included. While many records are added clearly the result of blanket cemetery transcriptions, others may very well have been posted by people who have not personally visited and checked the tombstone. Quite a few people fill in details that are not on the stone and may or may not be correct. Unless a tombstone photo is specifically mentioned in the footnote, no photo was present for the entry at the time of the citation, making the citation more suspect.
        Note: Not edited; subject to transcription and many other types of errors

        Author: Walker, Charles Atkins
        Publication: Fort Scott, Kansas: Published privately, Volume 60, December 1993
        Note: Contains a great amount of information mostly about a branch of Isaac Walker and Mary Haynes' children who moved to Missouri. No sources are cited, numerous errors are included, and the early Walker genealogy is completely wrong. Still, it represents a large amount of effort and has very useful family information on more recent generations.
