William Walker Cravens
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 4, 1868
Adair County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Aug. 29, 1925
Adair County
Kentucky, USA

William Walker Cravens (known as Walker) was the son of Sylvester and Angeline (Powell) Cravens. He married Sothronia Bryant. The April following his death, my mother was born to Joe and Viola Mae Bryant. Three of Joe's sons (Walker's nephews) from his first marriage to Mary Etter Cravens (Walker's sister) asked Joe to name the baby Walker. Not to disappoint his sons when the baby ended up being a girl, Joe agreed for Walker to be her middle name. Not until I started my genealogy research did I discover for whom my mom was named. It was this man, my grandfather's brother-in-law.

Note: As far as I know there is no gravestone still in existence for Walker Cravens. I got the information that he is buried here from the Adair Co. Cemetery Book #3 and I got the dates from his death certificate supplied by Brett Conover. I also verified with his granddaughter, Helen Louise (Bryant) Tiller, that this is the cemetery where he is buried. She knows it as Oak Grove Cemetery.
