NEW ZION BAPT. CHURCH CEMETERY, NEW ZION, Hwy 31 Alt. GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE.
This memorial is on the far end of this row shown in the center of the photo, just this side of the memorial with the green plant in front of it. Also on the far end of this center row with the busy green plant is supposed to be the stone for Bob & Sallie Walls. Opps, I failed to photograph it and will therefore list it here along with Bob's parents George W. & Elizabeth Bowen Walls who are known to be interred here nearby in unmarked graves.
