The big news is that the two books, "Walton County Georgia Cemeteries
(East)" and "Walton County Georgia Cemeteries (West)" are now
back from the printers!
This massive work is a completely new compilation and all the known
cemeteries in Walton County as of late 2002 are included. State
Highway 11 was used as the East-West dividing line for division
of cemeteries in these two volumes. This dividing line is a historically
significant route based on a road used by early settlers in Walton Co.
