Walker-Parker Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Extreme southwest corner of Grayson County

Directions: Take Pond Mountain Lane (Rt 755) from Whitetop (town) to the end of state maintenance. At this point there will be a house and several outbuildings to the left. Inquire at the house about permission and directions to get to this cemetery. Basically, you have to go up the lane past the barns closest to the creek and then ford the creek. It is fairly wide and fairly shallow but there is no bridge. Walk up this road about 0.25 mile, then cross a fence, and climb a hill planted in Christmas trees walking toward the ridge. Once on the ridge follow it until you reach the Alfred Blevins Cemetery. Continue on this ridge to reach the Walker Parker Cemetery.
