Reed - Walker (aka Reed) Cemetery
Marshall County,

This Cemetery dates to the 1800s. Interred here are some of the early settlers of the Flat Creek area, many in unmarked graves. Some of whom were prominent farmers an businessmen of the times, making this site an important part of local history. Those most notable being Caleb and Hannah Reed, who came from Williamson County around 1820 and the Josiah and Eugenia (Reed) Walker family. Other families include the McElhaneys, Pruitts, Blackwells, Howards and Russells. Many graves have fieldstones with no inscriptions, others are known through family records. Records were destroyed when the Bedford County courthouse was burned during the Civil War, creating doubt as to the donor of the property. The cemetery is maintained by the Reed- Walker Cemetery Association.
