A Stonecutter’s Tale

  1. I found the grave of a David Walker in Westview Cemetery in Atlanta. Under his name it says Stonecutter born in Scotland. He died in 1894 and his marker says he was 34 years old, so he was born ca 1860, I”m pretty sure he must be related. I created a memorial for him on Findagrave, # 76623864 and have a photo posted there of his stone, very nice!

  2. This is really fascinating. I appreciate you putting that information together. The White name is one I’ve seen in my travels through cemeteries as well. I didn’t realize the history behind it. THANK YOU!

  3. Interesting! I would be very pleased if you could cite the sources of your data. I am interested because, in Matanzas, Cuba, my hometown, there is a gravestone slab, interred within the Cathedral, that is marked by Rowe and White, and is supposed to date to 1809. Is is this possible?

    1. If you click on the link at the bottom of the post for “References”, it will take you to a list of sources.

      That’s fascinating about the Rowe and White stone in Cuba.

  4. Tom , way to go ….. Mantle Fielding’s Art Reference has a small space dedicated to the family and simply list the together as the “Walker Family” SC . Gravestone Sculptors . When I cross-reference the Walker name over into Davenport’s art price guide I see William Aiken Walker of SC active up until 1899 and well listed at auction . I wonder if that was part of the same family . Yes , now as my memory reflects he had a brother that I was looking for with the initials C.S. Walker . Did a watercolor of white dasieys . Thanks for the post !
