PARKER, W. K. 12/17/1883 01/16/1937 (Only the initials WKP are visible on the footstone of this grave. The large tombstone has been toppled from its base and lies face down on the grave, with no writing visible. It was too heavy for my husband and I to move. I have assumed that this is the grave of W.K. Parker as recorded in 1976 by Johnny Cox per the Knox Co. Cemetery books.)

NOTE: Shortly after I recorded the Stoney Fork Cemetery, I found it listed in the Knox Co. Cemetery books as having been recorded in 1976 by Johnny Cox and his wife, and compiled by Charley Cornelius. I have listed here only the stones that I could read, with the following exceptions. Nancy Jane Lewallen's dates, the Prichard children's last name, E. Mahan's last name, and W.K. Parker's dates are from Johnny Cox's recording, as found in the Knox Co. Cemetery books.
The transcriber of this cemetery feels that
this cemetery was transcribed to the best of her ability. If you are in
doubt, you may want to contact a different source. Nearly all genealogical
and historical societies, and even many public libraries, have some transcribed
cemetery inscriptions for their area.
