The original transcription for this cemetery was completed by Mr. James Toal, additional burials were taken from funeral home records, and family histories in possession of Eileen Gochanour.

As these transcriptions were done by humans, they are subject to errors. One should research the original documents/read the headstones, to verify the correctness.

Directions: Heading from Athens on Route 29, towards Springfield, turn left at Route 124 which is about 1.4 miles from the Athens entrance on Route 29. Follow Route 124 about 3.3 miles to the crossroad which is a two-way stop. Turn left on to Constant Road, towards Fancy Prairie. Follow Constant Road about 2.5 miles until you come to the first road before Fancy Prairie. This is Peoria Road, but there is no sign indicating such. You can only turn left. After turning left, follow this road 3.4 miles. You will see Walnut Ridge Cemetery on the left side of the road. There is a sign right on Peoria Road and a long gravel lane which goes up a hill to the very well kept and pretty cemetery. Some of the stones are very large and beautiful as shown in the accompanying pictures.
