Edward Walker monument-Gibson, Georgia

Located in the Gibson City Cemetery in Glascock County, one of my favorite markers in Georgia. The Walker marker is a standout, especially for a rural cemetery. According to his death certificate, Edward died of the flu. It is listed as part of the Smithsonian’s Save Our Sculptures database.
